A little over two years ago I started this blog not knowing where it would lead, but excited to see God’s plans unfold. This month as some of you know, I launched a new blog called Woven Beautiful. After a week or two of trying to maintain two blogs, I hear a gentle whisper guiding me onward.
Letting go isn’t giving up. Giving up is when you stop trying. Letting go is when you start believing that God knows best. ~Hannah
God gave me those words earlier this year and I shared them here in a post a few months ago. I think though, God also knew who really needed those words…me.
I have poured so much of my heart into this blog. Those of you in the WordPress family really have become my blogging family. Those of you who follow from other places have left your fingerprints on this blog too. Your words of encouragement have uplifted me time and time again. Thank you, friends—more than you will ever know.
I’ve struggled thinking that by letting go of this blog, I’m letting go of all I’ve invested here over the last two years. But I now see differently. This was the beginning of my writing journey. This is where I first discovered that God put a passion in me, long ago, to write.
This has been the bridge that has led me to a new blog—a new chapter, but a part of the same story. So now I see that these two blogs connect.
This blog led me to another, and God knew all along. A new year is right around the corner, and it feels like the right time for the beginning of something “new” and yet still familiar.
My feet are now planted and my heart is now at home, at Woven Beautiful. It’s where I can write about things I always hoped that I would be able to, but wasn’t sure that I’d have the courage to share. This blog has helped strengthen my courage and I know that it’s been a part of God’s perfect plan all along.
WHAT THIS ALL MEANS: Over the next week or two, I will be transitioning over to just writing for Woven Beautiful. If you follow this blog through your WordPress Reader, you will no longer see “Pocketful of Motherhood”posts, but instead posts from “Woven Beautiful” will show up in your reader. For those that follow by email, you will start getting email notifications of new posts from Woven Beautiful. And please, don’t feel obligated…you can always unsubscribe if you aren’t interested.
I will also be going through my content on this blog and merging over posts that are fitting to my new blog. It’s going to take me a while to go through 140 posts and all my many pictures. 😉
If you haven’t already visited, you can find me at wovenbeautiful.com where I write about topics such as body image/self image, Godly beauty, motherhood, and healthy living. You can also stay connected with me on Facebook and Twitter. If you need anything else, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Onward it is, but Pocketful of Motherhood will always, always remain in my heart. And so will each of you. I hope to see you over at Woven Beautiful!
