Just a note to my friends

My dear husband urges me to keep on writing. He says it's what God has given me, and that I should use it.  I, on the other hand, seem to have run out of juice. These last few months have taken a lot out of me. As you may have noticed, it's been all I can do to keep up with our study of Charity and It's Fruits, and the new blog I'm doing together with Paul. I'm a plodding thinker, and a painfully slow writer.  I hope you, friends, will be patient with me during this "dry" time.

I have been struggling as well. I have posted a bunch the past two weeks, but it has been a dry year compared to the past.

Hang in there, we will await your thoughts and observations.

Make your goal the same I have in 2010: to keep the blog alive and have it see 2011.

I feel a bit slower, too. It seems my older posts have more "sparkle" and sometimes I think the villain "chemo brain" has dulled my ability to communicate. Some days I wonder if I even "think" anything of lucidity, let alone come up with something to write. And then I sit down, begin writing, and something comes of it. Maybe not sparkly, but still decent. Relatively speaking that is. lol

Laurie, I think it's OK to post about how you're feeling. You always have such meat in each of your posts. I'm sure it takes time to put it all together.

You are human after all, even though you are a child of God. And very precious ...I might add.

I can tell you that your post on cleaning has been invaluable to me. I know it's not spiritual but it was so helpful. I am in the midst of cleaning my house right now but needed a break. I'm using the products you recommended too. Thanks for that. My floors smell so good with Mr. Clean!

My suggestion to you is to keep on blogging. Occasionally participate in a meme to get to know other bloggers and they can get to know you too. They will love you friend. And when the Lord gives you real meat to share ...share it like only Laurie can!

Blessings and love,

Just found your blogs (from Karin's site). You write some deep stuff. Takes a lot of thinking and studying. I can see why you would "run out of juice." But I have a sense that you'll keep studying and coming up with more material.

You have a very good blog. Mine isn't nearly as deep, but I do enjoy this kind of reading.

Thanks to you all for your very encouraging words. I'm not giving up, just slowing down for a bit.

Debbie, so glad to have been able to help you. I wish I could get myself to get excited about doing a little cleaning around here! But, oh, the plumber's pipes syndrome....

Warren, I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit, and took the time to lend your kind words. Thank you. I'll be sure to pay you a visit as well.

I don't post often, but I do read, and I have no problem with a dry period! :)

My goodness, I'm looking at the time and I've spent nearly an hour exploring your blog, and it was not a waste of time.

I was moved with compassion for Muslim women.

I finally understand what they mean by "white privilege."

I've been edified by Luther because of a Little Red Hen.

I've admired the Creator as I've surveyed the awesome footstool of His Solar System.

I wish I could be as thought provoking during my dry periods. I too, am a plodder. Must be all that chocolate.

Thank you for such a profitable hour!

If you knew what a dark time I am going through, perhaps then you could know just how much your kind words meant to me. Really.
Thank you.
