Good Bye For Now

Some say the pen is mightier than the sword and
         I suppose that is true in many cases, but this
morning, God reminded me that His sword is mightier
                than my pen. While my pen may delight some at times
with word pictures, emotional pulls, witty rhymes or
                 a bit of laughter,
        when His sword enters in, it truly challenges and impacts
    lives for the better.  It’s difficult to hold a different item
in each hand without loving one and hating the other.
          I can’t fully embrace and utilize His sword with a pen
                 in my hand for He has told me so.  Therefore,
                         I will lay down my pen
                                       perhaps forever,
           perhaps for a season, as HE deems best. Thank you 
     for what you have allowed me to share here and
the things you have shared with me.  I’ve enjoyed
                  the Soup, but it’s time for me to focus
                                  on sharing Bread.

    oh Carol I'm saddened to see you taking a break from writing but I fully understand. I do hope that in time you will relinquish your sword and your pen will sit comfortably in your hand. Take care :-)hugs jan x
