I Will Miss You, But it’s Time For Change
We’ve all heard it said that there is an end to all things and I suppose this is a correct statement. Sooner or later all things do end; some sooner than we expect.
I’ve been going over and over the planning of this blog article, trying to figure out just how to begin and what to say. I suppose the best way is to just jump into the deep end, so here goes.
I am pretty much calling it quits with Patti’s Place, this blog and the Facebook blog, especially the Facebook end. I may occasionally return here to write a spiritual or personal article, I’m not really sure at this point. I won’t delete them and I’ll leave them both up since there is a lot of what I hope and believe is useful information and encouragement.
This decision comes after much prayerful consideration; it’s not a hasty decision by any means. Let me say right here that I have really enjoyed the endeavor and I have made some friends that I will always consider my friends even though we may never meet on this earth.
My reasons? I have spent countless hours, days, weeks, months and yes; even a few years working on Patti’s Place. I have learned much, shared much and tried very hard to reach people with good. I would like to think that in some way, I have succeeded in that.
However, I know in my heart that it’s not my real purpose in life and I have finally had to admit that working on the blog, spending all those countless hours scouring the net and sharing, has seriously taken me away from what I know is my purpose in life. Sort of a detour, if you please.
In other words, my focus shifted a few years ago, away from the more important things that I believe I was born to do. Not that what I’ve been doing hasn’t been important, but simply put….it’s not my calling.
I know what my calling is and it requires much dedication, consecration and time given to prayer and growing in my walk with GOD.
Whether you believe it is Biblically correct or not(and I’m sure some don’t), I am an ordained minister and yes….I am a woman. I am not a pastor, I’m not even much of a pulpit preacher, mostly I teach. This is my real purpose in life, what I was born to do and I have neglected it a bit over the last few years. Not completely of course, but I haven’t given the spiritual side of my life the time that I know is required for me to be the best that I can be for GOD and HIS plan for my life.
The world as we know it is rapidly going downhill, we don’t know what the future holds, but it looks dim in the natural. I have taught preparation for a long time and now it’s time for me to get down to some serious preparation myself and building up the Spiritual house instead of the natural.
Simply put….it’s time to get more serious than ever before about my relationship with GOD and the future of my purpose.
I can do longer give the time to Facebook and this blog that is needed for prayer, studying and reading the WORD.
Does this mean I’ll never be on Facebook? No, it doesn’t. I still have several pages I am responsible for, but they don’t require anywhere near the time that these pages do. I won’t be on Patti’s Place Facebook anymore after this week, but like I stated earlier, I may occasionally write a blog article here.
In other words, my priorities and focus have shifted and that’s a good thing for me.
I’m not worried about any of you not finding what you need on Facebook and elsewhere on the net; there are a multitude of sites that are much better than mine. I appreciate the loyalty and friendship that I have received from so many of you.
I will miss you, but it’s time.
Blessings from my place to yours!
