The Internet Is a Wonderful Thing

Dear Friends,
For those of you that have noticed that I have not posted lately, I feel I need to give a bit of an explanation.  Some of you may have noticed that I took the Faithbooking For All blog down, as well.

I love the internet.  I love that it provides me with a way to share with people that I will likely never meet. What I do not love is that it also empowers some people to say things that they probably would not say in person.  And sometimes what people say hurts.  It could start as a stabbing type of a pain and then grow into a niggling/festering doubt that calls into question my ability, my motives, my efforts and my artistry.

So I am taking a break for a bit and will post again when my mojo has returned and my skin has toughened.

As far as the Faithbooking For All blog, it may go up again when/if I have the energy to provide the content that I want to provide and figure out how to positively deal with the negativity that my efforts seemed to have attracted.

Thank you for your well wishes and the emails that I received inquiring about my whereabouts.  For the 99.9999999...% of the people out there.... I am eternally thankful and grateful for you.

All the best,


  1. I'm so sorry to here about the nasty comments. I hate when I read them and don't understand why people do not use manners. As well as "if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything. So sad.... I hope you continue blogging. I enjoy reading yours so much. Hope you have a God filled day....

  2. Beverly - I'm so sorry you are having to deal with this. Thank you for sharing this part of your story as well. Blessings be on you.

  3. How is it that a few can ruin everything for the rest of us? It's just not fair, but it still happens. I hope you get your mojo back!! I understand where you are coming from. Take a short break, but don't let it keep you from what you love!! *.*

  4. Thanks for the update. I'm sure there are more fans than haters to your blog.

    Do what makes you comfortable. I'm here for inspiration and techniques and am grateful for your time sharing your art.

  5. Thank you for letting us know what's going on...I just recently "found" your site and have been enjoying your inspiration and creativity.

    May the Lord bless you with peace and direction.

  6. I'm so sorry to hear that there are such horrible people in the world. I just discovered your blog and it's a shame a few nuts can spoil things for everyone else. I hope you're up and running in no time at all and believe me, you don't have any reason to doubt your talent and creativity. You do an awesome job!
