A New Month

Each month and even each day brings new opportunities for us to grow, and to trust in our faithful, loving God. And to sense His love and direction in our lives.

This new month of March has brought some of these new opportunities of growth and trust for me. And with it, comes a giving up of my own plans to write here on my blog regularly each week. At least for a season of time ...

There are a number of reasons for my stepping back from blogging for a time. The first reason is that my dear sweet hubby had a health scare the very end of February. This situation is calling for a significant amount of my focus in the weeks ahead. (I may write more details at a later date, but want you to know that he is doing very well now - how we praise God for this! We also appreciate prayers for continued health.) 

Also, my hubby as well as the rest of our family who lives nearby will be very involved in the next month or two with the care of another relative. We have helped my brother-in-law (single, and with some needs) move into a smaller apartment. We also are helping line up help for him in a variety of ways, as well as preparing the family house for sale.

So, though I really do love to write here several times each week, God is giving me peace about stepping away for an undesignated period of time. It's a hard thing for me to do, but I know that His plans for me are good, and I am filled with peace as I follow His direction. I may possibly still pop in here with a post periodically, but not as regularly as I usually have been doing.

Thanks so much for your friendship here, and for your prayers during this time! And since I cannot step away completely from writing and communicating things that God is teaching me and prompting me to share, as these things just overflow out of my heart ... you will certainly still find me on my Pursuing Heart Facebook page. And I would love to have you follow me on Instagram ... look for me as @cherrywarrick. I would really love to see you in either of those places of communication and sharing! And thanks so much for praying for me and my family as we focus on the things that God has planned for us at this time.
