This will be my last post for 2016. It’s been a hard year for us – a Job kind of year – with the deaths of loved ones, serious illnesses, an unfinished construction project that greatly reduces the quality of our home life, and then a number of more minor annoyances that manage to be majorly annoying all the same. The global backdrop of what’s happening in Aleppo, with the worldwide political climate, and worries over the refugee crisis closer to home has not made it any easier to bear our personal troubles – even if they do put it all into perspective.
This, and the fact that I’ve been busy writing … did I tell you I finished the first draft of my Regency? I think I did. I put it aside until the new year, but I have EIGHT research books to read on the Regency period over the holidays … Anyway, this and the fact that I’ve been busy writing a novel has probably left my poor blog with the least amount of posts written in one year.
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.’ (Lamentations 3:22-24)
Although I’ve not been blogging much lately, I’m not closing shop. In fact, I have a whole idea of new posts I plan to write for 2017.
Here they are in no specific order:
What my French nutritionist has me eating, Part 2.
What I discovered about ‘entitlement’ through fasting.
How the donations for India went.
A photo tour of the Château of Fontainebleau.
How to tackle international travel comfortably and elegantly.
More recipes. I always have ideas for more recipes!
So I’m still here. I wonder if I have any readers left from my early blogging days – from 2009 when I started “Perfect Welcome” (which morphed into ‘A Lady in France’ a year later). Do people even read blogs anymore? 🙂
No matter when you started reading, if you’re still here, I’m so glad to have you. Sending you the cheeriest wishes for 2017. I hope to see you here then!
