Seeing God in my life is pretty awesome. I don’t mean that in the “totally awesome” way, that watered down meaning of the word. I mean it as “full of awe”, so crazy cool that it brings tears to my eyes.
I know He is always there, and always is. There are just some times, when I know that if I had followed my head things would have been very different, and I look back and see how perfectly He had that planned out. Even if the plan made no sense up front.
It seemed completely ridiculous that I would do all the work involved in buying and managing The Homeschool Post only to sell it after just a year.
But that is what I have done. I am turning the page and beginning a new chapter.
I share a little of how I came to that decision in our announcement post this morning.
I still don’t quite understand why I needed to be there, or why I needed to leave, I just know it was time. I feel in my heart that God led me there and home; and I look forward to the amazing things He has in store for myself, Sara, and The Homeschool Post.
I love to write. I love to write funny things. I love to write informative things. I love to write scary, sad, heartfelt things that show how pain in life doesn’t have to destroy you but can lead you to a deeper more intricately amazing you. Since taking on The Homeschool Post, I’ve been writing less and less. Managing a blog should not be all consuming. For many who run them, it isn’t. It’s a job, it is something that they do and then go about the rest of their day. For the first year, that’s what The Post was for me. Sometime around mid-December, it became all consuming. After my surgery, while I was having a run of emotional breakdowns, the thought crossed my mind that maybe I wasn’t supposed to be there anymore. I have found myself in similar situations in the past, and it has always been God pointing me to a different path. I thought it was the hormones and the meds making me wonky, so I hesitated. Hesitating with God is trying to tell you something brings grief y’all. February was rough on me. So the move was quick, full of prayer before, during and after. I am excited about Sara and for the future of The Homeschool Post.
I will write for The Post, something I haven’t actually done since I took over, and I will continue to write for Bright Ideas Press, as long as they will keep me.
I will come back to writing here. I can’t wait to get to know me again. I can’t wait to get back to sharing with each of you, again.
