Leave of Absence

I knew I was going to have to write up this post sooner or later, and well, that time has come.

I am taking a leave of absence from the internet for an extensive amount of time, I don't know how long at the moment. Due to my sister's cancer and several other things going on, I just can't keep up on everything anymore. The truth is, I was trying to find my fulfillment in blogging, socializing via the internet and entertainment because of the hardships at home, when I should have been seeking the Lord for his comfort.

I have all the Red Crisis posts scheduled to keep on going, so don't worry about that. ;) (They aren't edited, though, so forgive the mistakes you'll no doubt see.)

I just really need a break for a while. I will still come on once a week from time to time to reply to comments and see how everyone is doing, but my blogging schedule is going to be interrupted and I just need to get my life put back together. I need some time to seek the Lord, spend time with my family and just listen for God's direction on my life. I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing right now.

Thank you all for being so understanding- I knew I could tell you this and you'd understand the struggles. :) I love and care for all of you, wonderful blog readers, and you have made a world of difference to me! I will be back sometime, but probably not blogging as regular as I was.


Thank you and God Bless!

With love,

Emily McConnell

    At least not the Red Crisis ones! (I think I might die from curiosity had you stopped those as well! ;) Thanks for giving those! I do look forward to your sister's clean bill of health soon! Our family's prayers are with you!

  8. You'll be greatly missed around here, Emily. But, as much as I could without being in your shoes, I understand. Maybe more than you could ever know.
