August BREAK

I saw a quote this evening and I thought of writing from it…but then my ‘transiting’ writing side told me to put it up as a tweet instead (although it was too long for that).

So, I think I would probably put it up on the Facebook page someday (yes, do checkout ‘BlessingShares’ page after reading).

Back to the point…why this title?
  
It’s pretty explanatory-my blogging inspiration took an August break– literally. I could tell you for free that all through the month, I had no urge whatsoever to pick up a pen to write a blog related post (up until the 29th ish).

Yes see, I had written once or twice…scratch that (I had written plenty volumes for the book’s sake) in August. But then, I had not written one blog post (there’s apparently a difference- amazing!

  
Because

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”- Ecclesiastes 3:1 #MyBestVerses

I would say in this context “a time to write for a blog and a time to cease from writing for the blog.” (I’m back by God’s grace- it was only a break) 😜🙏
It brings me to say at this point that I do remember clearly the year I started blogging…2013. A single quote would trigger a blog post of over 250 words. 
Lately, I have been using quotes all the time, putting them up on the social media platforms ( Facebook Page and @blessingshares on Twitter ), even creating my own quotes (by the grace of God). Although those quotes did not trigger a blog post in August.

  
You see, it is neither a good thing nor a bad thing…it’s a ‘thing’. There is indeed time for everything. A season to post every other day, and another season to refrain from posting.
I assumed it was an act of laziness…now I know better. It was simply a BREAK.
An innocent one, totally useful….It forms a part of the blogging story. I have written consecutively on the blog for three years…would still write for many years (God willing).
Now, I have come to realise, there is a season to publish write-ups on the blog and there comes a point when you publish chapters of life in a book.

  

To all those that love the writings on this awesome blog till date (myself inclusive), you can prayerfully countdown to having a compendium of the Writer’s words at a go (more like a memoir in a published book- by God’s grace).
Glory to God!!! The break was worthwhile. 👏🙌🙏💕🙋😃
Oh…it’s great to be back. 

Have a blessed September! Amen 🙏
