Hello dear Welcoming House Peeps.
It has been a while, hasnt it? I have gotten the usual messages and cyber hugs from folks who wonder how we are doing and what we are doing. If everything is ok.
And honestly, things really ARE OK….I have just been wrestling with some thing the last few weeks and prayerfully seeking guidance on what direction to take.
My Littles are not so little anymore, four going on five, and full of life and questions and amazement at the world around them. I am soaking that up with every moment because these precious kids are a gift to our family when we were so broken and unable to have biological children of our own.
The last three years have been beautiful. I feel like I have shared so much, encouraged so many, done what I was asked to do.
I feel like I have made friends that Â I would never have known existed were it not for the Welcoming House.
But for now, at this time, at this point in my life, I really do need to shake hands, give hugs, and walk away for a time. I need my kids to see me playing in the yard with them, getting glue on my fingers, mentoring my oldest through the toughest emotional years of her life.
I am not fully shutting Â the door simply because I do not know what the Lord is calling me to. Â But I do know that it is time for me to graciously tell you just how much every day, every post, every letter, every book sale, every comment and every encouragement has meant to me over the last three years. I do know that for a time this blog needs to just exist as a resource and education, or inspiration for others who need to read it.
Its a tough decision, but I believe it is the right one.
Â I will still be checking back for comments and answering questions. Please feel free to contact me. I will try to keep the facebook page running for a time as well, as I have not felt led specifically in that direction yet.
Blessings to you and yours,
