Making It Official

I'm retiring from blogging. My heart just isn't in it these days and I'm finding that I feel like I could be making much better use of my time. For those of you I read, I'll most likely still stop by from time to time.

Thanks for all the love, support and fun over the last three years. You guys rock and I love you all!

Thanks for your past posts. You will certainly be missed from the blogosphere but it's no use forcing yourself to blog if your heart's not in it.

I hope you'll still spend some time visiting other blogs and posting comments from time to time.

Thank you for your contribution to blogging.

Sorry to see you stop blogging, but I completely understand how you feel.

Take care and God bless you and your family.

Wow...this is the suprise and kind of a bummer. Well I guess this is a good time to go down memory lane. I'm not sure I ever told you about that I told my child about the time you saved the cat. She thought that was pretty cool. You will be missed.

Stacy I am bummed to hear that you are giving up your blog. I understand why because if you can't do it right just don't do it. I have been away for a while, trying not to spend so much time on the computer. Thanks for sharing so much with us, and helping us grow along the way. May God bless you and your family!

I will miss reading your posts. My comments are not working at this time. My blog is under redesign right now.

I've checked your blog every day hoping that it will be like the last time you signed out, or thought about it. I keep looking for a new post. I understand that we don't have enough hands and feet to do everything. You have such a full life and I pray for you and your family. Don't let the school bus get you gray headed too soon. Thanks for a great read while it was....

Well I posted a comment when I first read this post of yours but it looks like it never showed up.

I'm sorry to hear that you'll be leaving blogdom as I've come to greatly enjoy your blog. At the same time I know what it's like to lose the fire and need to be cut free of the computer.

I wish you many blessings on your life and hope that you know you've touched many people.

God Bless.

A new blogger, I found yours and looks like we have some things in common. Hope you will blog again soon.

I had the pleasure of finding your blogs today, 'K.I.S.S.--Keep It Simple, Stupid' and 'The View from the Porch Swing' (through a google search for 'a heart of worship') only to be severely let down when I clicked to your new blog to find that you weren't blogging anymore. Your thoughts and your heart clicked 'right in line' with mine, and I was anxiously looking forward to catching up with your blogs....

I am surprised that not many commented on the blogs because they were so chock
full of truth...but you were light years ahead of us back then anyway!

If you like, please drop in on my blog from time to time, and lounge around...I'd love to hear from you!

I can be found here:



ps. I tried to send this to you via email, but it bounced back!

I love reading your posts while I patiently wait for a CSR to pick up my call and the onhold music plays. It's quite sad that you're quitting but then again, it's your choice. See you around!
