IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE?

IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE?

 
Time is a precious commodity…a gift.

Sadly my life has taken a turn I never asked for, nor wanted, and days fly by in stolen fashion.

The business we bought sucks the life out of us and eats up a large portion of our day. We are caught in a vortex much like I would imagine the black hole in space…(a region of space having a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape).

I feel my life, my dreams, that deepest part that matters… sucked in, spun off its axis and slowly but surely disappearing.

It is time to re-evaluate, look at my blog after a year and half of writing and consider these questions. How relevant it is it? Is it meeting a need? Should I continue?

Why do I ask these questions?

Because preparing and writing this blog takes precious time and energy, and I am willing…if there is a genuine need.

The only thing that keeps me posting, keeps me writing, keeps me laying my personal life open for the world to read…is the reminder of the pain of betrayal and how little help I found available when in the thick of pain. I truly do not want anyone to go it alone, or not believe there is hope of healing.

So I ask you…my reader to respond. Leave a comment if this blog has helped you in the past, is currently helping you, or if it gives any inspiration to your soul.

Your response will determine the need. If there is a need, I will continue, but if I am writing and this too is doing nothing more than swirling into the black hole of cyber space, then I will take my time and use it differently.

 
YOU HUGGED HER...REALLY?
WHY EVEN BOTHER TO PRAY?

Hi Blossom,
I read your blog every time. I always enjoy it and learn something from it. I feel it is very valuable and much needed. I would hate to see you stop blogging but at the same time I understand your point of view. I would be thinking the same thing. I also know that way too often at the time someone is about to quit they get a breakthrough. I believe your blog has eternal value and even if I am the only one who reads or responds the practice of writing and getting your thoughts out there is good for the soul. I will understand whatever you decide to do but I would like you to know that you will be dearly missed if you decide not to continue.........Suzie from Winnipeg

Blossom, thank you so much for your faithfulness! I have been so blessed by your writings and the wisdom of God that you convey. The Lord has given you such a great gift and I know that you will use it wisely to encourage and edify others, whether that will continue right now, or in the future. Even though you may feel discouraged at times that perhaps you're not reaching anyone, let me strongly assure you that God's word will not come back void. Only God will ever truly know the souls you have touched with your honesty and genuine love for others. Just to encourage you today, a woman from my church brought your name up the other day over coffee and how she was encouraged by you when you spoke at our church. Blessings my friend!! Love you! Joni

Hi Blossom,

Your posts are very encouraging and I am sure, a great help to people who have experienced what you went through. Even those who have not (such as myself), can appreciate your story, and how you have "made it through". I hope that you will continue to write this blog.

Blossom,
So often your blog has lifted my day, and a couple of times has been exactly what I needed to lay before someone who was struggling.

That said, there is a season for everything. Maybe put it down for a bit? Try a different, less soul searching or shorter format for a period?

I would be sad to be without it forever, but being a super busy chap myself, I would hate to feel I was reading something that was adding stress to what should be a beautiful life.

Listen to your shepherd; he's spoken so clearly before when you have needed Him to. Having read your blog, I know you can trust Him to speak again... Rob

Blossom,
I have been looking forward to reading your blogs. I have appreciated them in the past and it still helping me.
You have a ministry here this is a gift God has given to you.
I would also understand if you are in a different season in life and this writing blog has become to much and you have to lay it down for a while.

Blossom
It sounds like you need a hug as much as we do.
Yes we need your blogs.
I was told of your site about 8 months ago during the worst period of my life and your words led me to believe that you were one person who would understand my situation even a little bit, and it made me feel so much better.

I was married many years and I found out my husband had an affair ...My life has been dealing with divorce, more lies and more betrayals, loneliness but also slowly learning more about myself and very slowly learning to trust God.
I still hold my breath much of the time, but I wanted to let you know how much your blogs have helped me. You so clearly put into words what we are going through. It is so comforting to know that someone REALLY understands.

Thank you again Blossom and know that even if it seems sometimes your are writing into a void, you are not, we are listening, hearing and feeling better because of you words. I think sometimes we do not respond is because we are still hurting so much.

Take care and with love from
L
