Taking a Break

After only 5 months of blogging I feel worn out. I started a blog to get some of my thoughts down in writing never realizing that the experience would take on a life of its own. I need to take a break and decide if and how I want blogging to fit into my life.

Marla has decided to quit blogging and most of her reasons for quitting are the same thoughts that have crossed my mind the last few days. Seeing those reasons written out so well by Marla has confirmed some things for me, so now I just need time to think those things through.

I'll be back once I've made some decisions.

What is up with this blogging thing! It is not suppose to wear us out! I had hoped it would motivate, inspire, encourage, support!

I hope you have a refreshing break...and return renewed. If you would like to just visit other blogs....if you feel the need for a quick fix...please stop by! :)

This seems to be catching among bloggers just now -- the need to either retreat or stop altogether. I took an extended break awhile back, and it did me good. Hope it helps you make good decisions as well.

Well, I understand you want to take a break.:) I just hope that you will be back :)

Well, fine. Maybe the Lord is trying to get me to stop spending so much time reading blogs. He's just going to start shutting them down on me. I haven't been visiting here long, but I bookmarked your site because you are a Christian woman with insights and commentaries that interest me and with which I usually agree. I even like the look of your blog--simple yet elegant. Whatever you decide to do, I pray that God will confirm your decision and bless you beyond what you can imagine.

Carrie, I know it's doing me a world of good, so whether you give it up temporarily or for a longer season, I'm sure the "blogfast" will result in clearmindedness and blessing, though you seem to already have a lot of both :)

Dear Christian Women-
I would hope that you would reconsider. I have just found your blog today, in a massive search for other Christian women who love Jesus and want to tell everyone! I am a working mom and I wanted to connect with other Christian working moms...through many searches I located your site and wanted you to know, I love reading about Christ in your life. I may never meet you or know you, but as woman sharing Christ and seeing how He is growing you...well, there is nothing more incredible.
Keep up the good work and I will be praying for you.
--Karen, servant, wife and mom
