when it’s quiet

I thought I’d share a few words on silence.  The quiet I’m referring to is the quiet that mysteriously fall upon this place.  My goal is to post 4-5 times per week, but that doesn’t seem to happen much.

The main reason is ministry.  I want to tell you that I don’t mean I blame ministry.  Not in the sense of complaining.  After all, spreading the gospel is on the top 5 important things in my life.  Simply put, ministry gets busy.  The more people God adds to our flock, the more dinners, meetings, counseling, events, friendships, rough patches, ect are adding to our already full life.

I am blessed by the work that is taking place in our town.  People’s lives are changing. Christians are digging deeper into the Truth.  That’s what God can do through willing hearts and faithful people.  These wonderful people have been put under our care.  I’m still trying to figure out why us.  The only answer I can come up with is…because.  Because He said so :)

Why am I sharing this with all of you?  I just want to let you know that even if you don’t hear from me, it doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten you.  All it means is that somewhere in the middle of Women’s Bible Study, a church potluck, and counseling a broken heart…I didn’t get the laundry, dishes, school, or cooking done.  I’m using my usual “blog time” to fulfill some responsibility and maybe even the occasional rest.

I really miss you friend.  I hope we can share all sorts of fun Christmas crafting soon…just as soon as I get some more done.

I worked on headbands last week(8 down, 2 to go), and eye masks.  Next on the list…wallets and car cozies.  And certainly some knitted hats.  How are you doing?

One thought on “when it’s quiet

  1. We miss you too! But I understand. And from a place where God has inexplicably left us without ministry before us (wish we saw through this one, but time only will reveal His purpose), I urge you to embrace it. There is nothing like knowing you are doing exactly what He has placed you to do. I long for that again.
    In craft-land I am not quite where I’d hoped to be, but plugging along. Coffee cozies turned out great as did headbands. Your phone cozies are next up as well as some ear warmers and pj pants.
