Slowing things down around here…

 

Happy Easter, friends!

I hope you are drinking champagne for breakfast today, just like you’re supposed to be. You don’t know how hard it is for me to not write a post today about how important it is for us to be celebrating well this week. But, I’m forcing myself to write this little note instead.

So, these days I’m working hard on my book. And as much as I would love to be a super human literary machine who can churn out pages of manuscript while still coming up with semi-non-whiny things to say around here on a regular basis, my word for this year is Enough.

I chose Enough because I knew I would be writing a book this year. And I knew I would feel overwhelmed. And I knew I would be afraid. I knew I would have to learn what I can do and what I can’t.

So even though yesterday morning I had a perfect idea for a blog post and even though all weekend I was keeping track of my thankful list in my head, I’m not going to write those down this week. I’m going to focus on my book instead.

I’ll be taking a break around here. I’m still going to keep the One Good Phrase series going. (It will be up tomorrow!) And I’m still going write for A Deeper Church and I’m sure I’ll pop in every once in a while and show you what’s up on my chalkboard for the week. But I know, for the sake of the book and my own sanity, that I need to quiet down and focus.

I’ll miss you and our conversations. But I promise we’ll chat soon.

Much Love,

Micha

    Yay for being able to make decisions to help you feel the enough! I’ve appreciated reading your blog since way back in the Mama Monk phase and I’m so thankful for all of the words of wisdom and healing and just lovely things that you’ve allowed all of us to read and in a way to have a window into your life so that we could feel okay about ours too. Thank you thank you! can’t wait for the book!
    (And yes we drank champagne for breakfast yesterday!)

    I’m so glad you’re doing this – it gives me courage to take time out and write the longer things too.
    We’ll be here when you’re back!

    I’m wishing you well and writing in response to Jeannie’s birthday gift to fellow bloggers at http://prinsenhouse.blogspot.ca/
    It is such a blessing to meet new friends of old friends.
    Rest well and best for your book. I finished my first a year ago — it is such a joy!
    Every blessing as you follow God’s path for your writing and God’s heart to minister in just the way he created you to minister.
