Out of the blue last week, my husband told me that I wasn’t blogging enough, and that he would be kicking me out of the house one evening per week from then on so that I could go out and write.
I know. I know….he’s totally wonderful, right?:) And quite in a predicament there it seems…
Tonight was my first “night out” to blog in a long time…and lo and behold I had a nice table in the back of my favorite coffee shop, a strawberry-almond Italian soda, and writer’s block.
However, I did find that I had a healthy dose of blogger’s guilt when it hit me that I haven’t updated my blog’s topic pages in more than two years! So, check it out ladies (and the handful of gents who read this blog)…for your reading pleasure are about 90% of my Humble Handmaid posts since 2009 (the substantial ones at least). I’ve put links to them under the Marriage, Interior Life and Motherhood buttons at the top of the blog.
How neat is it that I have been blogging now for five years?
While going through my old posts this evening, I have felt such joy in remembering again God’s works and mercies in my heart and in my life over these past five years. So many of my posts are truly little windows into my spiritual journey as a wife and mother. They are a treasure for me, as well as a gift to my family. But they are also a gift to my readers.
I have been so humbled, surprised, and honored to have many of you contact me over the years with prayer requests or stories of how you have been encouraged by a post you read here. It is always a great gift when the Lord allows us to glimpse a way that we have helped another. He accomplishes so much more in us and through us than we will ever know or understand.
God bless each of you abundantly! Happy reading:)
