Perspective...


Sometimes I need to pull right back to get God's perspective on my very busy little world. I get so bogged down on the nitty gritty, the hurly burly...of marriage, raising and homeschooling 4 children, running a business, growing our greens and the rest of the stuff that makes up our lives.


These holidays have given me the chance to think through many things and make some decisions. There is so much superfluous fluff in my life that tends to tangle around my ankles and keep me busy with it rather than the things that really count.


So for now, as we face a year of exams for our two older children, increased levels of schooling for the other two and a need to simplify time spent, again, at this computer when my work already keeps me here too long....

I am going to say goodbye for at least the next 4 months until our elder daughter has finished her schooling.

Thank you all for your comments, for your encouragement and reading my learning curves, wanderings, adventures and what ever else I stick up here.

With love
Wendy

I really respect your decision. At the same time I'll miss your regular posts and hope very much to see you back in four months. God bless you as you focus on other priorities over the next while!

You will be missed. Your blog is what got me into reading blogs and eventually starting my own. A true inspiration. Hope to see you back and good luck with the next four busy months.
