Several weeks ago--actually it's probably been a few months now--I began to feel overwhelmed and restless. That's usually a sign that change is coming! I have a "split personality" about change. I love adventure and look forward to learning and experiencing new things. But I also am sentimental and a bit stubborn (okay more than a bit:-) I like to stick with what's comfortable and familiar.
On November 16, 2008 I made my first blog post at Godly Graffiti, my "writing blog." A month later, in December I made my first post at Crayon Chronicles blog. At the end of this month, I'm going to officially close them both down. It has been a difficult decision for me as I really have formed a relationship with each of them -- and my followers and readers. But as much as I love those two "babies" of mine, it has become clear that I am to be economizing my time and energy.
I went back to work full time in March of this year and so have had less and less time to write and less time to visit my bloggy friends and followers who have supported and encouraged me so much. In fact, it became a real stressor for me. So I asked God to direct me and clarify how He wanted me to serve Him the most effectively. Well . . . you know what they say about being careful what you ask for! :-)
So while these two blogs will be phased out, a new blog that ties in to my "writing for pay" columns will make an appearance very soon. It is called Just Be Frugal and will link to this blog as well as my two columns at Examiner, Richmond Frugal Family and Richmond Working Moms.
This blog will remain! I can't imagine not being divinely designed! I hope and pray you will be blessed by the new blog and that you'll continue to follow me here. When the new blog is up, you'll be the first to know about it! I also hope to have more time to visit my friends in the new year with regularity. I love you all and you have blessed me with your friendship.
Blessings on your journey,
