Well, hello there! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? For those who don’t know (or can’t remember), late 2012 this blog went quiet. Very quiet. In fact, it went away! My reasons were, on the whole, practical. The ever-constant tension between duty and time had escalated so that it was apparent the time for blogging was “not now” — maybe never. So, in the spirit of Ecclesiastes 3:1, I removed Heavenly Springs from the Web to focus on home and hearth, ministry, and work responsibilities. Removing the blog felt extreme, but it had to be. A peek here, a peek there, and before you know it — well, you remember the movie. “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.” So, I folded up my little corner of the internet, tucked it away in a safe place, and pretty much avoided the neighborhood. Now, a little over a year and a half, guess what? “I’m back!”
I’m still not sure how it’s going to work. That tension I described hasn’t gone away. But, the sum and substance is that I really want to be here. So, for now, I’m going to manage expectations (not yours, mine!) and aim for one blog post per week. Anything more is gravy. I hope to make Heavenly Springs a profitable place by posting on subjects like Church history, Reformation theology, Christian biography, maybe even some Revolutionary War history, book reviews, and of course, an occasional recipe.
Before I go, there are two people who need to be acknowledged. They are Louis & Melissa Tullo. The very talented (and pregnant!) Melissa designed the blog; a busy (but always gracious) Louis managed the technical stuff on the back-end. Theirs was a labor of love and they made sure I knew that every step of the way. And last, but certainly not least, a special thanks to my beloved husband whose persistent encouragement always cheers my heart and motivates me onward.
So, there you have it, friends! I’m back with you on the blogosphere!
