Thank you so much for your comment found here. You may never come back to Pure and Noble, but in the off chance that you do, I wanted to write to you. You are right, sometimes blogs seem to suck up so much time that they take away from life: family, friends, etc. However, there is a very pleasant reverse to that and it's exactly what I wanted to share with you.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ and as such, I am called to disciple the hearts of others and serve everyone. I have the glorious opportunity to do just that as a stay-at-home Mommy. I shepherd the hearts of my two boys daily and get to serve them and others in more ways than I ever thought possible. It is a rewarding and hard job. In fact, it is the best and most important job I've ever had in my life. And while I love my job, it requires a big balance; one where I have to pour into myself in order to be able to pour into those around me. Enter the blog...
Pure and Noble is my outlet. My "me" time. It is my opportunity to do and share the things that excite me. Things that God has gifted me with in the area of creativity. Pure and Noble has allowed me to meet new people all over the world. I have been able to share my faith with believers and non-believers that I otherwise would have never met. I get to write, create, inspire, design and many more things through this blog. I feel very blessed to have the followers and readers that visit me here. Bloggers have a very strong community bond that is a blessing to have received in addition to all the other gifts presented through Pure and Noble.
Now, as I said on the post in which you commented, if I ever lose sight of my faith, family, community, or friends and stop making them a priority... blogging stops. That has yet to happen and so the blogging continues. In conjunction, I continue to love the Lord my God with all my heart, love my family well, fellowship with friends and serve often. Thanks again for your comment. I do hope you will return. xo
