640 - There is a Season for Everything...

Hey ya'll!! Hope you all are doing well. I am doing fantastic. Even here in Illinois we made it through Hurricane Ike. It looks as if a tornado, a small one, came through the town. Lots of down limbs, debris everywhere, and just yuck and muck all over. Goodness gracious those insurance kind of people are going to be so busy for a while.

Today I will be pulling the name for the first giveaway. I will either email you or leave a comment on your blog or find you somehow to let you know you are the winner! I will not be leaving a message on this blog. Why? Well, I am glad you asked...

I told you there were some changes I was going to be making to my blog. Along with those changes I will be absent from the blog world as far as posting for a few weeks. I have scheduled to come back on Oct. 25. Many thoughts, questions, and exciting adventures I want to discuss with the Lord and I need this time away to seek it out.

I will still be available for email - cletus104 at gamil dot com, you can find me on Facebook or Myspace (even though I do not like that one at all), I have done that Twitter thing and hopefully be getting text on my phone, and if you know my cell you are welcome to call as well. There are still plenty of ways to get a hold of me if you need be. For those close or in town my newspaper column will still be running.

Thank you for those that signed up as a follower of the blog. I will be definitely visiting you on my time away. Please go ahead and click that if you have not so that I know who to run by and return the honor.

Thank you for your understanding. This will be very, very, very hard to be away for this long. This is an obedience thing. I can hardly wait to come back and show you my new way of blogging and how fun it will be. I have gotten a few more requests to do more giveaways - even a pair of pearl earrings. What in the world - how are these people finding me? But I am so glad to share it all with you!!

By the time I come back surely I will no longer have those boots on...surely!! I might even have a different hair color... I might be...............who knows - HE knows!! Love you all and see you soon! Please don't forget me!! I will be here just not here!!

I totally understand... Several months ago I went on a 40 day break from the blog. I feel God showed me a lot during that time. Blessings sweet one on your break :)

See you when you return...

I am so proud of you my friend. Choosing obedience is always right and the Lord will honour you. I will miss you here...and I won't forget you. I will pray that the Lord will use this time to clearly define His desires for you. Your excitement as you begin this new journey is apparent. God bless you.

Love ya,
Joy

May the Lord greatly bless your obedience and time away! Looking forward to hearing what He's shown you.

Hey - I just found you too (through Fran through Shonda LOL) I have added my name to your "followers". Come and follow me too. I love that new feature from Blogger.

I also LOVE your ministry. I went to She Speaks this year. I am trying to get to the CLASSeminar in GA next week.

I will be reading more about Speaking Thru Me Ministry in the coming days. I sense a "kindred spirt."
Sweet Blessings to you
and prayers for your "time away".

Looking forward to seeing what cool things you've come up with! :))

Lindsee said...

So I'm gone for a while only to come back and find that you are gone for a while! However, I KNOW that this will be such a blessing for you in the end. The Lord is so going to bless your obedience. Can't wait for you to return...but until then, we do have facebook. :)

Kenneth Boa ROCKS! I just saw your post on Runnermom's blog. You are the first blogger I've seen to mention his prayer books. I have Face-to-Face Volume Two. I gave it to my mom's husband as a gift one Christmas, and after he passed away, I took it BACK...is that BAD? :)

Leigh,

Know you are not blogging, but when you come back I left you a gift on a post dated 10/02/08

Thank you for allowing me to pray for you and your ministry, it is an honor.

Be blessed,
