Thank You! And Changes Are Coming!

My husband and I are currently on vacation in the Carolina’s – our first vacation other than long weekends since we were married 4 years ago.  We are having a blast!  The weather has been beautiful – the 70’s, which is a very nice change from our Maryland winter.

It is about 10:58 pm, and Gary is snoring on the couch next to me, after falling asleep during a UK Basketball game.  (I believe they won.)  I have missed interacting with you! My Christmas was probably the best in years, as I shared special time with Gary and 2 of our sons, and our oldest’s girlfriend. God is doing amazing things, for which I am very grateful! I pray that you saw Jesus in your Christmas, and that your heart and soul were comforted and uplifted, even in the middle.

I want to thank you for reading the Advent posts, and for all your wonderful interaction with me – you made it seem more like we were sitting together over coffee.  Your comments meant a lot, and I enjoyed writing, listening to, and praying for all of you.

Several of you mentioned that the series format was greatly appreciated.  So, when I return in a couple of weeks, you will notice some changes.  The first change you will notice will be in the name of the blog – outlined below.  I will begin posting 4 times a week, with a weekly or monthly topic.  Also, the blog will focus completely on encouragement, rather than a variety of themes.  Lastly, you will find some other minor changes that will, I hope, make the blog more cohesive, and more greatly hone in on the theme of encouragement.

The blog’s new name will be “En Courage”.

The word “encourage” is from a french word meaning “to instill heart”.  Along with that, you will find a new Avatar and sub-head, so new and visiting readers can more quickly realize the overall focus.gravitar-photo

As in the Advent series, over the 4 days a week, I will share scripture, stories, worship, and suggestions to keep us going.  I hope to hear regularly from you. I would love you to share the scriptures, suggestions, and worship music that has brought you courage to face life and all if offers.  I would also love to hear your stories of how you have encouraged others, and how you have been encouraged.  I would love to publish some of your stories, to pass on the courage you have given or received.

We all need to have a boost of courage sometimes. As you read, if you are currently encouraged – pass the blog onto a friend who made need a boost.

I look forward to growing in this journey with you, and I love that we can instill courage within each other.

I will sit with you once more in a couple of weeks.  Please, in the meantime, send me any prayer requests.  (In that vain, I will be setting up a new email address when I return, so that you can more easily send me prayer requests and notes privately.)

Love,

Robin ❤

Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. Philippians 1:3

    1. Wow! Thank you so much! I truly appreciate it and would love to participate! I will let you know, as I will probably do it later this week. I truly enjoy your blog, and just assumed you’d been doing this a while! I did read your post, and was wondering how to request the WordPress emails. I still have so much to learn. Thanks again!
