A little explanation…

Hi ladies. I know it's time for me to do my weekly post, but in its place I wanted to give you a little insight into this brain of mine (Yikes—that can be a scary place! J) and some thoughts about what I want for this blog.

Lately my blog has turned into a bit of a devotional—and I think those sites are great! But that wasn't my goal when I started the blog; it wasn't even my goal when I started doing my "Weekly Thoughts" posts. In fact, those posts were just supposed to be smaller insights that I had been thinking about or learned during my Bible studies during the week. But they were to be complemented by the bigger articles that I would include, the type I was writing when I started this blog…

But then came the conference! I am absolutely LOVING the planning of this conference, but it seems to have taken over my life. (Anyone who has tried to talk to me recently about anything else can attest to that. J) It has definitely taken over my "creative time"—you know, the time that I don't spend doing laundry, loading the dishwasher, changing diapers, that kind of thing. This one-day event has become a six-month journey for me!

And then this last week, I started to feel some familiar tugs… The tug that said I haven't been making good use of all of my ministry opportunities… The tug that said that some of the conference planning is slowing down (for now)!... And the tug that says I've got things on my heart to write that go beyond a simple devotional-type post.

So please be patient with me! Don't go away! I'm going to forego the "weekly thoughts" this week and try to get myself back on track. I have some exciting thoughts and ideas that I can't wait to share with you! And in the meantime, I also wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your wonderful, encouraging words; and a big THANK YOU also to those of you who are sharing this blog with your friends!

Talk to you soon, and have a blessed week.
