This will be my last post for a while. A season has come to take time from blogging to turn my heart home, in more than one way.
I'll turn my heart home as our family finishes planning and hosting a graduation open house for my oldest daughter. She is a pride and joy and deserves my best attention.
My husband John is my home. Our marriage has survived a turbulent couple of years. A new door has opened for our relationship. I'll turn my heart home as John and I reconnect in vital ways.
My heart will turn for home when I visit family this summer. The day has not yet arrived when I've resided more years in Michigan than the 27 I had in Colorado. I understand that whether my address is Michigan or Colorado, my citizenship is of Heaven, and that's my real home. But my people and our mountains? They'll never stop being home.
The blogsphere is one of my homes, where I connect with like minds. I've hesitated to pause blogging, because this haven builds up my own spirit at least as much as I intend for it to build yours. But I'm pained by the inability to read your blogs more often. I will genuinely have my heart turned toward home if less writing means more time to actually visit you at your places.
I make no promises or plans right now for a return date on posts. I'd expect to be gone for at least a month, but not past summer's end. I may be inclined to share a worship song on weekends here and there. Comments on existing posts will receive replies.
You can plan on this: sooner or later, I'll have my heart turned toward home here at Building His Body, with plenty to share about the Lord—for Whom we provide a home.
Thus says the LORD:
"Heaven is My throne,
And earth is My footstool.
Where is the house that you will build Me?
And where is the place of My rest?
For all those things My hand has made,
And all those things exist,"
Says the LORD.
"But on this one will I look:
On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit,
And who trembles at My word."
~ Isaiah 66:1-2 (NKJV)
