Last-Half-of-May Blogging Break

6065053437_b6cceb1fd0_zThe first half of May has been a whirlwind for me and the last half of the month promises more of the same. I’m willing to bet it’s a jam-packed month for you, too. In fact, I think May might be second only to December where the busy factor is concerned!

And so, dear readers, I’m going to apply my 2015 theme word rest to my life this month and declare a last-half-of-May blogging break. Sometimes we just need to cut ourselves a break, and this is one of those times for me.

I’ll resume regular posting on June 1, but in the meantime, let me leave you with a beautiful passage from the Word of God. May the King of Glory bless you and be your strength today and always!

“Lift up your heads, O you gates;
be lifted up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The LORD strong and mighty,
the LORD mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O you gates;
lift them up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Who is he, this King of glory?
The LORD Almighty—
he is the King of glory.” Psalm 24:7-10

  1. Hi Cheryl.

    Enjoy this rest, friend. We all need those times, huh?

    I can hear the song melody in my mind as I read your verse there.

    Have a great week,
    Jennifer Dougan

    • Yes, Jennifer, we certainly need times of rest. I have to admit this month is extremely busy for me, but at least I’m resting from blogging. Every little bit of a break we give ourselves helps, though, doesn’t it? Blessings to you!

  2. Cheryl, enjoy your rest. When I rest from blogging, the ideas begin flowing like a geyser. Then I post many entries and schedule them ahead so I can rest again. Enjoy those baby boys!

    • I have definitely been enjoying our sweet grandsons. No time for ideas to flow while taking care of them, though! :) I like schedule posts a couple of weeks ahead, too, so I won’t feel stressed about it. During busy seasons, even that is hard to do, though. That’s when it’s nice to throw some encore posts in, too! :)

      • Encore posts are something I haven’t tried. I think it is because it is harder to scroll through 7 years of posting than to bang out something new. Of course, I have pictures I can post and then just yammer on a little bit about them. And the tireder I am, the weirder and funnier the yammering. (at least I hope that is the case!)

        • Jana, here’s a tip – when looking for encore posts, if I’m wanting to schedule a post for June, I’ve been going back to the early years and checking for posts during that same month. That way I can find something appropriate fairly quickly. Yes, it takes some time, too, but since I’m a fairly slow writer, encore posts can really help me out. Plus, if I go back far enough, I figure they’ll seem like fresh material to about everyone :)

  3. You are so right Cheryl May is a busy month! I had to take a bit of a blogging break myself because we are so blessed that the Lord is taking our business to the next level so it has indeed been a busy Spring. Just got to blogging this weekend. I know your break has been lots of fun getting to spend time with those adorable grandsons!

    • Alicia, so glad to hear how the Lord has been blessing your business. Exciting! And yes, I got to enjoy lots of precious time with the grandbabies in May. As far as I know, I won’t be seeing them in June — unless I’m called to the rescue if things get particularly crazy or draining for my sweet daughter. I want to help give her a break from time to time. Taking care of two infants is a huge job as you can imagine! :)
