I don’t mean to drag this out, but I’ve received such strong reactions from people that I feel I must say a few things before I shut down.
I’ve read every comment and prayed for each person as I read your words. I have been crying and crying. It feels like I am moving away from good friends. But on the bright side, there are many blogs here where we can still share with each other. I am not really going away, and I will always be your friend. I am planning to be an active participant in several blogs and websites.
I may even start a devotional blog. I would enjoy that very much… just thinking about it right now. In years past, I have been close to God, then I turned my back on Him, and now have returned. My experience — or should I say my stupidity — may help others.
As Cathmae said, I did not make this decision lightly. I believe Daniel understands that this is a sacrifice on my part and he is grateful.
Robin’s comments, spoken from experience, make a lot of sense. So rather than delete this site, I am going to make it private as a way of archiving it. I will not be inviting people in — it will just be there as a testimony for myself of my journey thus far.
Again, thank you for spending time here with me. It has made my journey so much easier to live through. I have come a long way from the woman who was so traumatized that she couldn’t function, and much of that is because of you — my friends here in our little community.
I will hit the “make private” button tonight.
Love & prayers,
