Farewell to the Blogging Sphere

I know that people have wondered about me and my blogging.

Will she ever be consistent?
Why does she keep trying?

Nevermind... let's not go down that road...

I have thought more recently about my blog and decided that if I can't do a good job, I won't blog. My life hasn't lent itself to blogging, and I don't feel like that's my gifting in life either. Some people are meant to blog. I'm not, and that's OK.

So, I have decided to officially close my blog. If I ever decide to blog again, it will be at a new address. But for now, I'm finished.

Thank you to my remaining readers - you've meant the world to me. I've enjoyed my life of blogging, although quite sporadic, and you never know; I could decide to give it another go.

So, farewell - a last hurrah to the blogging world!

Among the Apple Blossoms

Rebekah is, by far, the most willing subject I have to work with around here. :) She was so gracious this morning to let me drag her out of bed and go catch some shots in the early morning light.

And my, am I enjoying photography again. Spring definitely re-inspired me. :)

Check out my travel blog!

Although there's only one post up (and it's not even legit!), keep in mind that I'll be posting about my trip on this new travel blog!

lilac scents ♥

The evening was so lovely, and the subject so beautiful... it called for some pictures. Below are 5 editing jobs; I'd love to hear what your favorite is. I like them for different reasons, and I could put them in different places for different moods. :)

On a different strain...

I have been seriously considering and thinking about changing my blog. But before I moved forward, I needed another opinion.

As I was browsing through my old posts last night, I was trying to find a theme. But honestly, there's no theme. And I keep reading that all blogs should have a theme. :) What do my readers say? Is the randomness of my blog preventing me from earning more readers? Should I have a theme? If so, what should my theme be?

I tend to love posting about everything - everyday life, photography, things from the Word, family updates, projects, cooking, and well... almost everything!

And I love to write about each of those things. I almost feel that if I didn't blog whatever randomness was on my heart at that moment, it wouldn't accurately portray me.

OK - now I need opinions. Because I'm about to ditch this blog and start over. ;)

Three Reasons to Blog Again

Although there are many more than three reasons to blog again, I have quickly decided on three that are... important.

1) It has been too long since I've blogged
2) St. Valentine's bones are rather disturbing... just sitting there and staring at you every time you enter my blog
3) I'm going to Italy

Yes - you did hear me right. Italy is next on my destination list. And for several reasons!
Cinque Terre
Vatican City

It has been a dream of mine to travel -- for several years. And after asking Dad and Mom, and seeking the Lord, God has opened the doors for me to travel to Italy with my dear Mommy! :) We are scheduled to leave fairly soon. I know that millions upon billions of pictures will be taken, and they'll be posted someday to this blog... or another. I'm thinking of starting afresh... we'll see!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Okay... those of you who know me well may think, "Uh... she's doing a Valentine's post?" ;) But of no worries, I'm not going to write a cheesy ridiculous post about Valentine's Day. I think people definitely take this ancient Roman holiday way too far. But despite all that, I thought I'd share something I ran across last night. :)

This is St. Valentine's skull, preserved in the Bascilica of Santa Maria in Rome. :) I'm still not sure I really like this picture. ;)

Yes, he was a martyr for the faith; and was killed on February 14, 269 AD. Not much other than that is known about him, but can this be a reminder to pray for persecuted Christians around the world? That they will stay strong in the midst of persecution, and be willing to die rather than deny?

Encouragement from the Word

"But now, thus sayeth the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and He that formed thee, O Israel, 'Fear not, for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name: thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through tht eirvers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Savior.'" ~Isaiah 43:1-3
  "But the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father..." ~John 15:26
"Behold, I have refined thee: but not with silver, I have chosen thee for the furnace of affliction. For mine own sake, even for mine own sake will I do it: for how should my name be polluted?" ~Isaiah 45:10
"If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him." ~John 14:23
"If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments; and abide in his love." ~John 15:10
"This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you." ~John 15:12
