Blog Status

As you know, I haven’t wrote much these past few months. It seems as though all I’m really doing is updates on our busy lives and nothing that substantial. I’ve toyed with the idea of writing a book, even tried a chapter. It was more than I could handle as far as a plot and keeping the characters straight. I set it back down and told myself, maybe one day.

Writing poetry has been fun but not much comes to mind as before. It was beginning to feel like a ‘have to’ thing, instead of the fun it once was.

I have made a couple life long friends on here and have even joined an email prayer line which I’ve enjoyed and relied on many of times. But sadly, I’ve decided to stop writing on here. I have to print my poems from here before I delete my blog. So you will see my blog and may search it for a while, but I won’t be writing anything new.

I recently unplugged myself from Facebook and I can say I felt a withdrawal from an addiction I didn’t realize that I had. Not saying I’m addicted to wordpress, but rather that ‘have to’ feeling I get when I think of it really gets under my skin. I have many commitments in my life right now.

This decision gives me a feeling of relief.

For those friends that I have connected with, you know where to find me. Email city!

Thank you for reading my stuff and commenting positively every single time. And thank you for your uplifting stories and faithful posts in a dark time in our world.

  3. I get it Amy. That’s how I felt last year. I felt I had to write everyday. So I changed it this year and now I regret the choice I made.

    I am glad it has given a feeling of relief. And you do need to concentrate on homeschooling the kiddos and such.

    I am glad we have become friends and can count on one another in prayer. You have blessed me with your writing in so many ways! Thank you.

    I will, of course, be emailing you😊

  4. Oh, my! I do hope you can leave your site up for quite a while, so we may go back and read your poems and thoughts. I have so enjoyed reading your blog.
    I get it, though, I really do. I’m glad you will keep your e-mail, and we’ll continue to connect there. God bless you, my Amy Dear.

  5. Amy, I am praying for you, as you continue following God’s lead. I am grateful for Him allowing me to read your posts, for the many encouragements, and the sweet fellowship. I will miss you, but understand. Please know you are thought of and prayed for as often as God allows. God loves you!

  6. I know how you feel Amy. I think about quitting almost every day, but then I look at my original goal for my blog. My hope was to reach out with every day things and God’s impact on them. I guess it is sort of an addiction in a way, but spreading the joy of God’s love for us is really needed in these times of turmoil and uncertainty. I understand your need to break from it though. We all need time to take care of ourselves and those we love. I hope you choose to return someday. In the meantime, know that your words have touched and inspired many, including me.

  7. Dear Amy, I am sorry that you ate leaving the blog world. But I understand and fully support your decision to do what you feel that the Lord Jesus is calling you to do.

    After reading this post last night, I read several of your other posts that I had missed, and I was deeply moved by how brave and honest you are. You are amazing and inspiring! ❤❤

    1. I saw that you read the whole truth series. Thank you. The more I think about it, the more I realize how much this community has helped me heal. You included. Did you get your book published? Sure would like to read it

      1. I’m glad you saw that I was reading, and liking, your posts. For some reason, my ‘likes’ seem to have disappeared. And when I try to ‘like’ your posts again, nothing happens. Grrr. It must be a new WordPress glitch.

        Thanks for asking about my book. I am still working on it. At the rate I’m going, it will probably be another year at least, before it’s ready to publish. I intend to self publish. Growing Up Crazy: Surviving PTSD, a Mental Institution, and My Appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. That’s the title.

        I wish I could give you a big ((HUG)) right now.

  9. Adding my prayers to those of Bruce and Deandra.
    I understand needing a break, and if God is saying it’s time to go, He certainly knows best. Perhaps He will give you the go ahead to write some more before you actually delete your blog. I’ve enjoyed getting to know you and your family through your posts.
    God bless you, sister, in the coming days, weeks, and months. 💖 May this be a time of growing closer to Him.

  10. Hi Amy, so sorry to see you go. I have to admit that I’ve toyed with the idea of calling it quits precisely for the same reasons. I’ve gone from feeling good about sharing all that I believe God shares with me as I read the scriptures, to feeling a burden to have to write. Not only that, to have to write what people want to hear rather than the what I believe to be the truth. I’m still toying with the idea of it, but I don’t yet feel released.

    I’m happy to have known you over the past couple years, even if I’ve not been very interactive. That’s been more busyness and demands on my time, than anything else. I wish you all the best and I pray that God blesses you and keeps you throughout these trying times.

    Blessings to you and yours. Dee

  11. Amy, I understand. We can only stretch ourselves so far, and we all need to be doing what the Lord has for us to do. I have not been responding much lately to other bloggers because I have had so many other things going on in my life and I just have lacked the time, or if I had the time, I was way too tired. So, I am getting caught up on some of those blogs today. I am sure you will be missed. God bless you! Always enjoyed our chats. 🙂

  12. Amy, I took a break over the summer and I came back to see soooo many changes! I was wondering why nothing of yours was coming up in my feed. Sending you lots of love as you focus on your priorities! God bless you……

      1. yes! homeschooling and activities have a way of keeping us moms very very busy. 🙂 please take great care of yourself and thank you so much for thinking of me! I am in the process of rewriting the 501 ways and working on a few other books at this time.
