It’s been quiet around here… {and why}

I just wanted to pop in and let you know that I’m still here, and share some of the reasons things have been quiet around here.

We Moved!

I shared a bit about that a few weeks ago, but we our family moved. We are still renting, but we’ve gone from a house in town to one that is out in the country and we are so excited about it. We still have a small yard (since our house is surrounded very close by the landlord’s cropland), and the house is even smaller than before and the rent is higher…but it’s out of town, and our whole family loves that fact. Still praying for the day when we can get in our own place, but for now it’s nice to have a new place to wait. We miss our neighbors, but love the quiet offered out here.

We’ve mostly settled in now, but still a few extra things here and there that take time.

Site Issues :(

I know some of you have noticed this because you’ve contacted me about it, but my site has been having some pretty serious issues, and I’ve been unable to fix it so far. Basically, I am having a LOT of downtime and there is no simple fix. The latest explanation I have received is that it could be malware, and this girl recommended that I would need to get a new host, do a manual transfer of everything on the site and *hope* that fixes it. I don’t have the skills required to do all this, nor the money involved with paying someone to do it. Every possible explanation is the same way–expensive and time-consuming to fix, at a time when I have neither extra funds for this or time.

So, the blog has been quiet. And, some of you may remember last year when I had intended to be a bit quieter around here anyway. I have felt the Lord leading me to focus more directly on serving Him and my family and less on this blog, and now seems to be the perfect time. I do wish that I could still have the blog fully functioning in the meantime, but there is little to be done about it right now. It’s a silly thing, but I would appreciate your prayers for direction and wisdom concerning this little blip of technology regarding this blog.

I pray this finds you all well, and that you’re keeping warm! We are having a lot of snow and cold temps here in KY.

    Where is your site hosted? Blue Host is having a sale if you have never worked with them before. After this school semester, I could help you with all this, but I need to get through these classes first. I hate website issues! I did something within the first week of getting mine up and going, and I simply killed it. It was nuts :-( I love the rural life and I hope you guys get settled in and enjoy!!!
