Laying Down the Blogs

My blogging sisters and brothers will know how difficult this post is to write.

I think it is time to “lay down” my blogging, as the Quakers like to say. Yes, it seems like I’m just getting popular momentum. Why cut it off now?

Veiled Glory was a great springboard for me to get into the head covering pattern of life. I loved meeting all the ladies and gentlemen from amazingly differing backgrounds who came here to visit. It was a confidence booster.

Last week I realized there was much more listening I needed to do instead of writing for a season. God has provided some Elders (in person and through the internet) that have been vitally important to where I am spiritually right now. Don’t worry, I’m not getting into some sort of leader-worship-cult! Quite the opposite! We all need some mature people of faith to help us along the way at times.

So, for however long it takes, I will be writing in my journal that collected dust while I was blogging or thinking about blogging. I will be reading Scripture, five chapters a day. I will be visiting with new friends. Trying out wobbly lamb legs, spiritually speaking. Sewing and knitting lots of cool stuff.

I may come back to Blogland under a different guise in the future, perhaps after the holidays.  Of course, I’ll still visit others’ blogs and comment. You are still an inspiration!

    While I’m a little bit sad, I have to say that your reasoning seems very sound. Blogging is something we need to be willing to take up or lay down at His will.

    I’m happy, though, that you are still going to be around here and there. 🙂

    Bummer! I quite enjoyed your blog and advice on head covering. Glad you are willing to put it down if that’s what’s called for. Thank you for the information and advice I’ve learned on your blog. Good luck & God bless.

    I am so sad, but do understand your reasons. I too think at times that I need to stop doing the blog but then I think of all those I get to touch that otherwise would never know.

    Thank you so much for all your wonderful posts! I pray that you have a productive rest of the year.

    God Bless!

    You will be missed, Anna. Take care and Godspeed as you desire to learn more of Him.

    This saddens me greatly, as I only just found your blog today. I was quite excited to see another “plain” lady on wordpress, and then I saw you weren’t anymore. Alas, I am very glad you are following God’s will. God bless! ^i^

    I wish you all the best and I commend your decision to do this no matter how painful it may be for the gains of spiritual fulfillment.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
