Dear Friends

Dear Friends...

Life has been a bit chaotic lately and I have neglected this little space for way too long.  In fact, not only has things been crazy, I feel like this blog has run it's course.  I am going to take a short hiatus and rethink why I even started blogging in the first place.  Is this what I wanted back then?  I don't know.  I feel like this place has become stagnant or maybe I'm simply in a new season in my life.  For now, I will continue to visit everyone's beautiful blogs and will soon decide what I want to do.  Whether it is continue here, start fresh with a new blog, or give it up altogether.  Right now, I feel as if I post just to entertain myself and I know that was not the plan, all those years ago, when I first started.  Times have changed, haven't they?  There was a time when people blogged to keep in touch and share life's adventures.  Now days, it seems blogs are for making money and feeding egos, not building friendships.  That's ok but it's not what I'm looking for when I visit a blog.  I don't want mine to end up like all those that I have quit following because of that and other reasons.  Anyhow, I got off the subject and started rambling.  Thanks to the one or two that visit!  

Grace & Peace,

Book Review -- Devotedly,

Devotedly: The Personal Letters and Love Story of Jim and Elisabeth ElliotDevotedly: The Personal Letters and Love Story of Jim and Elisabeth Elliot by Valerie Elliot Shepard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've always been a huge fan of Elisabeth Elliot so I jumped on this book! The devotion Elisabeth and Jim had for, not only each other, but also to God, is inspiring! Loved getting to know them better, through the eyes of their daughter!  It was emotional, moving, and a bit humorous at times.  I would definitely recommend this book!
