I have been stewing over this for quite a while.
I don't want to, but I am compelled.
Sometimes there comes a moment when your house is a mess, your kids are a mess, your husband is dressing creatively and there is no bread...again when you need to take a break.
I am sorry to say that I am taking a pause and this will be more than a few weeks while I fold socks. I need to focus on a few things I am feeling called to. It is killing me to not be able to manage all of it at once, but little by little, God is showing me I can only really do what I have been called to do. If I attach more tasks, then I am pulling more weight than I can manage with joy in my heart.
After giving up my animals and my garden, I thought that would be enough, but it seems that God is paring me down a bit more. I am leaving this space for a while to focus on some forest fires in my life.
One of them might be a book.
So, please be gentle. I am trying!
