To Everything There Is A Season

 

Life is so much about seasons. St Bernadette wrote, "If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces...never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again. That's the beauty of being alive...we can always start all over again. Enjoy God's amazing opportunities bestowed on us. Have faith in Him always." 

It has been nearly five years since I first started this blog. It has been a real joy to share these ramblings of blog posts, as well as my novels, with readers and hope that God may use them to touch souls. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all those who have prayed and supported me throughout the years, and know that you will never be forgotten. This may sound like a good-bye, but as I said in my last post, I believe only in saying, "until we meet again."

There are seasons....and after much prayer and discernment I believe it is time to step back from maintaining this blog. God is opening other doors for me to go through in life that are vocational, and it seems fitting to let other things be put aside. Sometimes it appears that God asks us to give things up that may be very hard, but rather I have come to understand that He instead fills our heart with things that matter more...and namely hopefully Himself!

If I were to leave readers with any thoughts to ponder it would be this: "If a bird were to carry away one drop of water from the ocean every thousand years, there will come a time when he will have emptied the entire ocean, but that time is less than the shortest moment compared to eternity."

This life passes so quickly, so let us remember that "adventure awaits" and "the only real sadness in life is not to become a saint."
