To Everything There Is a Season- Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
I'm shutting down Heartfelt Greetings. Could be for a while. Could even be forever.
I've finally come to the conclusion that I am entering a different season in my life. A season of change. A season for figuring out what my purpose here on earth is going to be in the next decade. I guess only One Person truly knows what that purpose is going to be. But, I guess it's my job to step aside, quiet myself down and listen for His whispers. Truly listen for His direction. My life has been so noisy for the past few years that I haven't been able to hear anything other than my own wailing, if truth be told.
This season of change has literally drained me of every ounce of creative mojo that I have ever possessed and trying to create cards for my blog without this precious mojo is a lesson in futility! It's frustrating and really makes me sad, because I get great personal satisfaction doing what I do. When I don't have cards to share with you, I feel guilty and that's not healthy. The emotional toll these past few years have played on me is great, and I have a feeling that's the big reason why I can't create very easily anymore.
So, it's time for me to close the chapter on Heartfelt Greetings. It makes me sad, but it's really something I feel I need to do. I had such a blast blogging, though--please know that! I have met such WONDERFUL women doing it! You all made me the stamper I am today-so, congratulations. You have inspired me greatly! I still plan getting into my stamp studio as much as I can, if the creative mojo ever decides to return. In the meanwhile, I would appreciate your prayers. It's hard to quit doing something you love. I will miss you all so, so much. Your encouragement over the past two years has meant a great deal to me!
If you ever want to reach me, please feel free to email me at email@example.com. I would love to hear from old friends. In the meanwhile, I will definitely be checking in on all of your blogs for inspiration, and leaving you comments!
Much love and hugs,

This post has been a long time coming, and it's only now that I feel I am ready to type the words that I've been feeling in my heart for a while now. Since it won't ever be easy saying them, I might as well just blurt them out right away....
To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under the sun. A time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill and a time to heal ...a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance ...a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;a time to lose and a time to seek; a time to rend and a time to sew; a time to keep silent and a time to speak; a time to love and a time to hate; a time for war and a time for peace.
