Stepping Back To Move Ahead

Hello you wonderful bloggers!

It’s official I have finally decided to take a step away from blogging for an indefinite period of time.

It’s been several months since I have posted consistently on Simply Life. It is clear that I’ve been experiencing a creative pause which has sacrificed both quality and quantity. Blogging is what relaxes me and gives me the opportunity to share with others. It is also an outlet to express myself through written word. I want to take the time to realize rather my season of blogging is over and it’s time to transition to something different or if this is just a moment needed to recover.  I will see visit you soon as I will keep in touch with many of you through comments and likes on your blogs.

Our God is a God of new beginnings, new grace and new mercy. In Him there is new life and we become new creations. Old things have passed away they are no longer to be considered for the Lord our God makes all things new! Let us therefore focus on the new from this day forward.  And by the way my fellow bloggers if I haven’t told you already I pray you have a blessed and prosperous NEW year in “2016” and each new year to come!





Look To God And Smile In The Storm

iojiopHappy Fantastic Friday everyone! I just thought I’d share this cute little story I found on Variety Reading today.  Enjoy!

A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to the elementary school. As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up along with thunder and lightning. The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school, and she herself feared that the electrical storm might harm her child.
Following the roar of thunder, lightning, like a flaming sword, would cut through the sky. Full of concern, the mother quickly got into her car and drove along the route to her child’s school. As she did so, she saw her little girl walking along, but at each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up and smile. Another and another were to follow quickly, and with each, the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile.

When the mother’s car drove up beside the child, she lowered the window and called to her.

“What are you doing? Why do you keep stopping?”

The child answered, “I am trying to look pretty; God keeps taking my picture.”

May God bless you today as you face the storms that come your way.
