A Bit of a Fast

I'm not sure it's necessary to make this announcement really, but I feel I am being called to take a bit of a blog fast; not a complete one, but a fast nonetheless. For the next few weeks I'll be posting less than usual so I may get some important things done in other areas of my life. I will try to post regularly on Sundays.

I'm leaving you with this sweet white bud as a symbol of new beginnings and great possibility, all in Christ, our hope that never ceases.

With love, Esther

Esther, you have a beautiful blog! I love the photo of Pope Benedict on your right sidebar. His trip to NYC was so exhilarating! He was so Christ like. God surely chose the right man to lead our church.

Please come by my blog often, as I will visit you too.

Esther said...

Hi Pat - I love it as well; it's so joyous! I'm glad for your visit and that you'll come back. I'll be stepping over to see you in Brooklyn, too. :)

Esther, I fully understand the need to take a break from blogging for whatever reason...I find it very time consuming and will need to change that. I'll miss your beautiful posts and photos, though.

Also, thank you so much for the quote on tears, I had never seen that.

I also love the photo of Pope Benedict on your sidebar! thanks, Pat, for reminding me to mention it!

Hey Esther. I definitely understand about needing to take a break every now and then. Enjoy your time off!

Esther, I have given you an award. Please pop over to the birdbath to read about it.

And Esther, I will miss you while you are on your blog fast, but I realize it is sometimes necessary to do.....

Thanks for being such an inspirational blogger.

Hello Esther, I totally understand the need for a blog fast...and I'll be thinking of you.

That is a beautiful header; it's been a while since I stopped by and your blog is looking as beautiful as the content you put on it.

Be refreshed and renewed as you take time out from Blog Land.

Good luck with your "new beginnings" Esther and may all the possibilities open before you like meadow walks or walks in the green gladed forest, filled with promise and happiness. Love, AKR.

Well, it's Sunday and I'm back; I've so missed being here! One thing that's been especially hard is not visiting the blogs of the lovely folks I've met through this adventure. I miss my daily doses of beauty, charm, creativity, humor and inspiration that each blog so uniquely provides.

Thank you all for your kind comments and encouragement!

Mibsy: thanks for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the quote on tears and I hope you'll find the balance of time you desire.

Elizabeth: I popped over to your blog and see that you're taking a break, too. I'll miss your faith-filled posts!

Lavinia: Wow, an award! I look forward to having a splash in the birdbath and finding out all about that. Thanks so much for that, as well as for your kind words!

Sara: Thank you for your encouraging comments! I'm so glad you stopped by.

Nana Trish: You are so kind. Thank you! I'll visit soon.

Eve: I'm so glad you'll be checking in. :)

A Kite Rises: Your good wishes are so lovely and poetic; they make me happy just reading them! Thank you.
