This past year I have become a Blog Reader Junkie but abandoned maintenance on my own Blog because my life was in kind of a tail spin for a while. Since I was uncertain about the direction I was heading I thought I should just “Be still” for awhile and take in the thoughts, suggestions, and ideas of others rather than put myself out there (where ever that is). So here I am – back in blogosphere. We’ll see where it takes me.
I am cautiously changing my life since my job ended in August after 17 years. While I believe it was a good thing, it has been a difficult transition. I am learning things about myself and others and am trying to figure out where to go from here. There have been lots of bumps, disappointments and AHA moments as well. Also I have learned that I have many very dear friends and an absolutely great family. My husband and children have been so supportive, and my sisters, brother, nieces, nephews, etc. have been wonderful. I am so blessed to be so loved.
I have many good contacts in business, but feel compelled to do something more creative and dedicate my time to things that have lasting value. Its pretty obvious that the “world’s system” just doesn’t work, (I knew that – but for some reason we keep trying to buy in to it!), and so I want to be sure that I spend the remainder of my life as God leads me. I don’t want to work for works sake, or just to make money. I certainly don’t care about titles, position or power as so many people do. It just doesn’t do it for me. My satisfaction has to come from knowing I am in the will of God and putting Him first in all things. If I do that, than everything else will take care of itself.
Be as a bird perched on a frail branch
that she feels bending beneath her,
still she sings away all the same,
knowing she has wings.
Since I don’t like unfinished business, I will begin blogging again. I intend to share my inspiration, ideas, homemaking tips, recipes, decorating ideas, and life at La Petite Maison de Spencer. I hope you will join me on my journey
