a sabbatical.

So, I'm taking a blogging break.
Actually it's a social media break.
No blogging, no Twitter, no Facebook, no Pinterest, no email, no cell phoning
for a month.
It's crazy, I know. But it's something that I have to do for my health.
I am more than my online presence.
I am more than these relationships.
So, if you know me and want to get a hold of me, sorry.
July will end soon enough and I will be back to the real world.

I'm approaching this time as a sabbatical of sorts.
I'm taking a rest from work.
I'm going to take this time to work on some personal issues that keep popping up in my life.
I'm going to take this time to read my bible
and allow myself to become fully immersed in the Word
Without any kind of outside distractions.
I'm excited. I'm nervous.
But, I'm totally at peace with this decision.
It's something I have to do to get my priorities back in order.
It's something that I have to do to get my brain back.
It's something I have to do for my well being.
I hope you understand.

I just didn't want anyone to worry if they didn't hear from me.
That's the problem with disappearing off the face of the planet for a few weeks.
Going off the grid.
Going back to the basics- the important things. Faith. Family. Myself.

This isn't goodbye forever. 
I will be back.
I will return stronger than I've ever been.
I will return in a better place.
I will return with so many stories to share of God's faithfulness .
I know that God can and will do great things over these next 30 days.


  1. You can do this!! I am so proud of you!! I will be praying for you this whole month!? Love you so much biffle!!

  2. You go girl!!! I am so excited for you and proud of you! I can't wait to hear what all God does in your life this month!

  3. You so totally rock. I know you won't see this for awhile, but I just want you to know how proud your mother and I are of you. I love your heart for God and know that he has great plans for you. I love you.

  4. I finally found the blog you now use! Girl, you are one confusing person to try and follow in the blogo-sphere!!

    And I must say- I'm a UGA grad. So aside from both loving SEC football, we might be enemies this fall! ;) But we should totally trash talk each other's teams like only SEC teams can, and drink wine. It's like a blog date. I can dig it.
