Quick Hi!

Can you believe this is the first time I've opened my computer in over a week?  Seems like forever, but I've been so busy with family, bible studies, and sickness.  I also think God has been convicting me over this blog...silly, but true.  Am I doing this for me or for Him?  The answer wasn't a surprise ...for me, mostly.  It's so easy to get caught up in the number game and not wanting to disappoint those who are reading what I have to say.  A person can really get taken in by this online world.

Just wanted to pop in for a quick 'Hello' and to let you all know I'm still alive.  I've still got a sick boy, so I'm off to care for him!  Have a great day everyone!

I completely understand. There have been times I felt like I was doing the blog for me not Him. That's when I get a God spanking. This is HIS ministry, not something to glorify me. Praying for you and your little ones dear friend!

I know exactly what you mean :) praise Him that you see that and you're doing the important things. I love it when you pop up with a post no matter how often... I am a forever fan :) BLESSINGS and praying for your sweet boy!

Allison, I echo what Heidi said. I love reading what you have to say, no matter how often. I pray everyone gets over this sickness
Many blessings!

I understand completely Allison... It gets very easy to get wrapped up by the "numbers", and miss what His desire for our sites is instead.

Sending prayers for healing and comfort for your household!

Have a Blessed Day!

The good news, if you are feeling convicted you are paying attention to what God is communicating to you.

Love your blog, whenever it posts. Thank you for sharing your words with your cyber friends.

Praying your little one has a speedy recovery and all are at peace in your home.

Hi Allison,
I pray that your son gets over his sickness quickly.
I have struggles with the same thing also. We must keep our focus on Jesus and our ministry is about Him. I love reading your posts.
