My last post was 12/1.

I settled in for the month of December to do a bit of a digital detox and to also step back and think about what I wanted to write and talk about in 2015.

It was great.

Until 12/30.

Last Tuesday, I got a text from a friend asking me if there was something going on with my site.

There was.

It was hacked… again.

This has happened before. This past August, I had a similar situation.  It was resolved after a week and then I kept rolling.

Let me tell you.  Having your site hacked is akin to coming home to find that you’ve been burglarized.

OK… maybe not AS bad, but it stinks pretty close.

Maybe God didn’t think I got enough good illustrations and good writing ideas over the break.  Maybe He has a sense of humor and likes to see the control-freak in me squirm.  Maybe I wasn’t paranoid enough to have two security fences on the front and two more on the back-end.


But whatever the cause, it happened.  And I’ll be down for another week trying to get this all sorted out.

It’s enough to make a girl want to quit.

But clearly… CLEARLY… one of the messages that God has been repeating to me over the last few weeks. (therefore I assume He is trying to make sure that I hear Him loud and clear) is “DON’T QUIT”.

And if I quit, then I wouldn’t be able to tell you more about what He’s been telling me.

So, bear with me… it’s gonna take me a bit to get my little online spot together.  I might have to hold a garage sale, peddle some baked goods, or sell one of my children to underwrite the cost of fixing this mess but I intend to do my best to get it cleaned up.

Just wanted to say hi, let you know that I missed ya, and keep you up on the latest in my world.

As soon as I get this place together, I’ll let you know.

In the meantime, feel free to leave a comment of encouragement below.  I’ll take all of the encouragement I can get.

Here’s to hoping that your first Monday of the new year is a good one!

Happy New Year friends.

See ya soon!
