My dear, patient, sweet readers,
Are you still out there?
I’m afraid I have gone MIA on you again the past six weeks. This was not a planned hiatus but became a necessary one.
I had previously told you about my recent struggles with depression the last several months. I began going to a doctor for treatment and wow — it has been terrible.
My doctor is wonderful, but my body has not been kind to me or the very conservative treatment plans my doctor has been trying.
I am quite sensitive to medications. This includes medications of any kind from cough syrup, aspirin, sleeping pills, and anything in between. This part of the reason why we try to use homeopathic medicine first for most ailments.
The medications, although very mild, caused some moderate to severe side effects and caused me to not even be able to focus enough to write.
BUT– some great news! Despite all of the terrible side effects, I am beginning to heal and have a much clearer head so I will be back to writing effective immediately!
To kick things off I have a surprise series for you: Beginning tomorrow through Christmas day there will be a new Christmas Advent devotional post every weekday. Also, these posts have been made into my first E-book titled, “O Come, O Come Immanuel: A Twenty Day Advent Devotional on the Names of Jesus,” which will also be made available beginning tomorrow, December 1.
I am so excited about this E-book! it is a collaboration of voices — some of which you have previously read on this site and others that are new and just as stunning! You don’t want to miss out on hearing what these ladies have to say, nor the deep critical thinking questions they propose for further thought.
You can receive my new E-book for FREE if you sign up to receive posts via email. I normally post only a couple times a week, but you can expect daily posts during the weekdays from now until Christmas! What a spectacular way to keep you focused on the season’s joy this Christmas!
I hope you will join us this Christmas as we explore some of the names of Jesus and why they are so pertinent to this Christmas season. It’s going to be spectacular!
Looking forward to hearing what you think about tomorrow’s post!
