Closed for Remodeling

I did this last year. Took a break from blogging for a while. Of course back then, it was easier. I didn't know so many wonderful bloggers. I didn't belong to this great "community." Nevertheless, it's time for a little break.

It's kind of a Lent thing. Our church doesn't really practice Lent so to speak, but in recent years the idea of fasting, giving up something good to experience something better, has really hit home with me, not to mention been a great blessing the few times I've purposefully abstained from something. I plan to tackle some house projects, keep some promises to a few friends, and attend to some matters of the heart.

I'll be back, hopefully around the third week in March. In the meantime, hold down the blogging fort and keep my seat warm! And if you really miss me, you probably know my email addy; I'd love to hear from you.

Enjoy your rest. It is always good to retreat once in a while. It helps to get a new outlook on life, I find. May God give rest to your mind and body. Enjoy!

Be sure to let me know when you are back. Since I don't "do" bloglines, sometimes it takes me a while to find your new posts!

I'm thankful I'll get to see you in the flesh! My hairdresser told me she was giving up chocolate, and it struck me, not that theres anything wrong with her choice, but if I did a Lent thing, I'd want to give up something not good for me, and replace it with something good for me or others. Enjoy your time away. I'm in the mood to get some big things accomplished around here too. xoxo

Dianne, thanks for the comment on Augie! I'm new to the blogging thing, but I'm enjoying it. I am looking at yours and liking it, mind if I link you?

Enjoy the lenten season, I'll look for you when you come back :)

My church quietly practices Lent, and I've thought about how it should effect my blogging too. I hope this is a very meaningful time for you.
