You may have noticed that posts are few and far between these days here at Life in the Valley. Lying in bed this morning I realized that now might be the time to let go of this for a while. My Gram once advised that I should keep writing till I felt like God was telling me I shouldn't anymore. So wise! Today, that time has come. I want to be writing now and then, but cannot seem to fit it into life. Then, knowing this space is dead becomes a source of stress rather than the joy it has been during seasons when I have been able to write regularly, i.e. when I have been willing to choose writing over something else.
I am so grateful to you readers who have encouraged me along the way. And I hope someday to be back at this. But right now, maintaining a blog does not fit in with my priorities. Surely this being a year of surrender has something to do with why the idea of leaving Life in the Valley alone for now came up in the wee hours this morning. I am rolling with it, because the thought brings me such peace ... and because I'll find excuses not to obey if I don't take this immediate action!
Feel free to poke around the blog. I will pray that past posts will be an encouragement to you in the present. May God bless you as you seek Him; I know you will find him!
I leave you with my favorite verse:
