Sabbatical: Update

Greetings, Fellow Bloggers!

This past month and a half have been quite the adventure. And definitely NOT what I had in mind when I set out on this sabbatical. Which, ironically has only served to further my conviction that this time away has been prescribed by God. And has also unfolded exactly as He had in mind.

BlogSite SpotLight: Conversations With God

Hello World!

My name is Grandma Fowler, and I am an ordinary grandmother who loves to write about her passions. Honestly, I believe I have something to say, but so far, blogs that I have published in the past do not reflect my sentiments. (That is, being void of traffic and posted comments from the general public…YOU!)

With that being said…move over kids. Grandma’s back in town and she is calling for all other grandparents who love writing and are curious about the latest blogging phenomenon on the internet to join her…being computer savvy creatures or not!


Good Day, Fellow Bloggers!

After much prayer and consideration, I’ve decided to embark on a Sabbatical; from blogging and pretty much everything else I can possibly set aside right now. As of today I’m thinking one month, but God may have other plans as time goes on. I will keep you updated.

Willful Blindness?

How many of us have sensed the leading of the Holy Spirit in our lives only to turn away from what He has impressed upon our hearts? And if we are sensitive to His presence, don’t we feel the heaviness that comes from having grieved Him?
