A Time for Goodbye

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:"
Ecclesiastes 3:1

It's that time, time for me to say Goodbye!
For the last 6 years I've come to know so many of my
sweet fellow bloggers.. With all the changes coming 
to blog land, I find it too much for me to keep up with.
I have enjoyed posting and reading your blogs. You 
have helped me with problems here and have showed
me the love of friendship. 

My personal life has to be my first concern. My 
hubby isn't in good health and continues to have
problems that demands my attention. There's new
lessons there that I have to learn and apply to my 
days. Time spent on my computer has to be reduced.

" The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want,
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures,
He leadeth me besides still waters."
Psalms 23:1-2

I long for the quiet still waters in my life. Today when
I opened my blog to do this post, there was another
note from blogger saying that more changes are coming
and I believe the time has come to say good-bye.
 I am friends with so many of you on Facebook.
I would love to become friends with more of you if
you are on it. This would allow us to keep up with
each other without taking up so much of our time
needed for personal use.

I will leave my blog up for now.

May you have a 
Blessed Memorial Day!

I do understand your decision and will miss seeing your lovely posts....but, hey, I'll be seeing you on Facebook! Hugs to you, sweet Sylvia!

Sylvia said...

Did you get my message on FB

Sylvia said...

Thanks Karen! You're so right, I have lots yet to do.

Sylvia said...

Thanks Susie, I have so enjoyed your blog post and will continue to read them should blogger leave it where I can. I am on Google plus also.

Sylvia said...

Thanks Elizabethd!

Sylvia said...

Thank you Sandi, I will miss blogging too.

I will continue to pray for you and Curtis. I did receive your fb message and look forward to keeping up with you there. xoxoxo

I'm so very glad we met through our blogs. You are so precious. I hope someday that all of us bloggers around the area.... actually around the country... can get together and meet face-to-face. If that can't happen then I know we'll recognize one another in heaven. Prayers for you as you care for your precious hubby, yes, that does come first. I completely understand. I've gone back and forth as to what to do about my own blog. Just leaving it in God's hands. Love you, sweet lady.

Toni said...

Aww.. Just now getting to really know the sweet caring person you are and happy to call you my friend. I will truly miss your blog but totally understand as I have closed my blog down many times. My prayers will be with you and your hubby dear Sylvia. Will "see" you on Facebook.

Robyn said...

Best of luck to you and your husband Sylvia. I just closed down my YouTube channel for the exact same reason.. I wish you both nothing but the best XO

Jan said...

I don't know what the changes are for blogging that you've mentioned? Where did you hear about them? The only one I saw was from Networked blogs, that they were discontinuing, but that is different from blogspot. Anyway, I will truly miss you, but I hope you will stay on Facebook so we can stay in touch? I truly think of you as a friend that I've known for all these years, and I love seeing where you've been and how your family is, etc., and having a cup of tea with you on the porch or wherever. Praying now for you and for your precious hubby Curtis. Praying God will meet your every need. I understand your need to pull away from blogging, but you will definitely be missed, dear friend.

Gayle said...

Being of a certain age myself, I understand completely. You will be missed. I hope you continue to look in from time to time just to enjoy photos of God's blessing with no need to post or reply. Praying for you and hour husband in this chapter in your journey. Blessed by God's Grace.

Terri D said...

I don't know about changes coming to blogger. Maybe I've missed something. One way or the other, I'm glad we are connected on Facebook. I will keep you and your hubby in my prayers. Your friends are here for you!

Carol W. said...

Dear Sylvia, you will be missed! I'm not on Facebook anymore (when my laptop crashed 3 yrs ago, I haven't been on Facebook since) and I will miss your blog posts. God bless you and Curtis with renewed health and much joy together!

Billie Jo said...

Hugs and love, my friend.
And if you ever choose to return, we will be here!

Kay G. said...

Oh, you are my fellow Georgia gal! You must do what is best for you. Keep yourself happy and healthy (and your sweet husband too) in your part of our pretty state! God bless!

Lottie said...

I can't believe the day that I decide to return back to blogging, you are leaving! I will miss you but I totally understand. Will keep you and your husband in our prayers! If things change and you can come back, we will be here!

Margie said...

I'm sorry to hear that you're leaving blogging, but understand that priorities change. Family should always come first! Thank you for visiting and take care, Sylvia!

Michele said...

To my friend whom I have known for many more years than your blogging ones. In fact, um, I think I was the one who talked you into blogging, haha. And I am so so happy that you did! Your posts have been lovely, and sweet and faithful and inspiring - thanks so much.

I don't and never will FB......not my thing....but you have my personal info. Please don't be a stranger.

I will miss you - and guess what? You can always come back. There's no charge. And don't be mislead into thinking those blog changes are that big a deal.

I shall continue to pray for your hubby - and family - take care and hope to see you sometime in future. Love ya, lady. God bless. ♥♥♥

Deborah Montgomery said...

I will see you on FB. I understand; blogging is time-consuming and sometimes there are other priorities. Blessings to you and your husband. xo

Jackie said...

Prayers for your husband....and prayers of thanksgiving for you, my blogging friend.
I don't post much at all any more, but I continue to read the posts of my blogging friends.
Sending you love and hugs,

Linda Jennings said...

Best wishes to you! I certainly understand a need for change and priorities. Take care.

Deanna Rabe said...


I am so sorry to hear this. You are a sweet, positive light in blogland. I am sorry about your husbands ongoing health issues. I hope you continue to visit blogs, otherwise I'd miss your kind comments! See you on FB!

Debbie Harris said...

This is a sad post, but I understand completely.
I have been blessed getting to know you and am thankful we found each other through my dear Stephanie.
I do not do FB but surely hope that we can stay in touch through other means.
You are setting your priorities right and for such a time as this, your husband needs you.
You will be missed, dear lady ♡
