I do not think anyone has noticed, but if you have, there is a reason for my lack of posts lately.

I have been feeling overwhelmed and under-organized as far as everything pertaining to our home recently. We have had a completely nuts October and November, and December isn’t shaping up to be much better. Last week I definitely lost the heart desire to do much blogging, and felt like anything I was putting out was perhaps a bit forced.

Trying to juggle too many hats all at once, when some of them aren’t hats that I’m perhaps not meant to wear, is not a healthy habit. I’m over committed in many areas and it’s slowly killing me.

So, I decided that this week, I would be taking a blogging break. It lines up perfectly with some family time we are planning on taking as well, and I’m already feeling the relief of clearing the schedule and starting afresh. It’s time to re-priorities, re-plan, re-schedule my life in a way that is more honouring to God and beneficial to my family.

While there will be some pre-scheduled posts up here throughout the week (mainly the 12 Days of Handmade Christmas), aside from that I will remain silent and mostly offline.

Taking time off like this is really important – like a retreat for your marriage and renewing the love, care and passion you once had. I really want this blog to be about what God wants me to do, not what I want to pursue, and I know I need to make sure that he is leading and I’m following.

So pray for me if you will, while I’m on this break, that I would seek God’s will and desire and how he can best use me in whatever situations, positions and locations he may put me. But most importantly, that my ministry and priorities would be to my family first.

Because I love these 3 monkeys

and this amazing man more than words can express!

Have a blessed week!
