You alone are the Lord.
You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars.
You made the earth and the seas and everything in them.
You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

How Do You Say Goodbye?

They say all good things must come to an end. It's sad but it's true. Goodbyes? I hate goodbyes and yet life brings many of them to each of us. Why am I bringing this up? I've decided to say goodbye to 11 years of hosting Spiritual Sundays. I have been very reluctant to do this because so many of you have expressed how much you enjoy coming here each week. Whereas in years past we had 50 or 60 people link almost every week, in the last several months the average has been about 15 or 16. I told myself if it ever gets below 10 I will stop. It hasn't gotten that low, but I feel like now is the time for me to quit.

So are we just going to quit "cold turkey"? I've decided that I will leave the linking up 24/7 for at least a couple of months. So those who wish to can come here and link any day of the week and, of course, visit other links.

Again I want to voice my appreciation for each of you and especially for the encouragement I received from comments you made to me through the years. I know you will keep in touch with each other and inspirational thoughts will continue to be shared among you. I thank God for the opportunity to have been here these years for you and pray life will be good to you.

    1. Thank you, Glenys, for supporting Spiritual Sundays. It was a hard decision I made but I think it was the right one. I intend to leave the linking open maybe longer than the two months. I have noticed though that since I posted this decision only a few more have linked. We'll see.
      Blessings to you.
