There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
For me, these weeks have been a time to be especially close to family and to pull away a bit from the internet world. I've taken time off from Facebook as well to nourish real life relationships where you ask your loved ones how their day went instead of checking their social media posts and assuming that you're keeping up to date with their lives.
I'm not going to stop blogging completely, but it may continue to be slow for awhile. As with everything, there's a time for writing and a time for speaking; a time for guests and a time for family; a time to be public and a time to keep private; a time for study and a time for application. I couldn't in any good faith write about the importance of family and home and marriage while turning my back on those very things to keep my nose in the computer.
When I get our home and family life back into balance, I'll be more than happy to report back and let you know how we did it. It's important to me to find a place in my schedule for this writing, because it's something I love to do, and a community that a enjoy being a part of. As with all things, however, it's a no brainer that the priorities here at home will always come first.
Blessings to you all, and I hope to be back blogging soon!
