What’s Next for the Blog?

So, today is my last Wednesday of posting on COAFW. Earlier this year I made a commitment to post every Wednesday, until the end of the year. I made the commitment because at one point I wasn’t being consistent with posting and I didn’t think that was fair to you, my readers. More so, I made the commitment for myself. Although I missed some Wednesdays and tried to make up for them at some point, the reward for me is that I continued posting no matter how I felt, whether I was tired, or anything else. 

I didn’t make any plans about whether or not I would continue to blog once I got to this point, but with end-of-the-year reflections that tend to come at this time of the year, I am going to think about it. What I do know is I love the gift of writing while using it to uplift others. I also know that if I choose to continue to blog, I want to be committed. 

So what does all of this mean? It means for now, this is my last Wednesday posting on this blog. It means that I’m going to take some time to think and pray about the next step for this blog (if there is a next step). 

Thank you to everyone who has been a reader and supporter of COAFW. I hope that my posts encouraged you, inspired you, gave you hope, or lifted you up in some way. You are always welcome to shoot me an email at any time, whether you want to just say hello or share something on your heart. 

I hope you had a very merry Christmas and wish you the happiest new year. 



Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas that is filled with love, joy, and peace, as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I will be sharing another post later today or tomorrow.

Hello and Merry Christmas Eve ✨ Welcome to day two of “Three Days of Blogmas.” As we prepare to celebrate Christmas, I want to encourage you, if you haven’t done so, to take a moment and spend time with the Lord. I was reminded of this last night as I was wrapping gifts. I felt a little nudge in my spirit to take a little breather and spend some time with God. After wrapping the final gift that I was going to wrap for the evening, I did just that.

I took the moment to sit still and reflect on the beauty of this season, to remember what this season is all about, and what Christmas means, personally, for me. It was a beautiful moment and one that I’m glad I took. 

Take some time out of your day today to spend some time with God. He definitely wants to spend it with you (another thing I realized when I felt the nudge in my spirit that I mentioned above). The time spent will help to decompress from the holiday preparations, but most importantly you will be in the presence of the One who this season is all about and will experience the love, peace, and joy that the true spirit of CHRISTmas brings.
