Setting Things Straight

Hello. Please come on in. I'm hoping you have a minute to chat today. I need to talk...

I Apologize

Over the last few months I have been lost in my blogging. I have been off course. I have had my focus in the wrong place.

...sitemeter, stats, site traffic, numbers, bloglines, google reader, RSS feed...

I neglected the original purpose of My Quiet Corner. In the process, I lost sight of you... my visitor, my reader, my friend.

Instead, I was busying myself on changing. I was trying to keep up.

Keep up with What?

I thought I knew. I was sure I knew. I was throwing myself into what I believed I knew.

I was wrong!

As I have taken time to once again be quiet, to reflect, to look back... I realize I knew nothing. I missed the point entirely. I accepted the pressure to be something more, something different, something that should not have been.

I Apologize

Would you please forgive me for becoming so consumed in myself sitting here in My Quiet Corner that I forgot that, perhaps, you had come to join me? I neglected to converse with you. Instead, sitting here I was still glancing out of the window, past the door, beyond into somewhere... for something. I'm sorry.

Grateful and Humbled

I can't begin to tell you how grateful and humbled I am that you would continue to stick through this with me, that you would continue to come. I don't deserve it, but am truly beyond blessed by it!!

For those of you new to My Quiet Corner, I am also grateful and humbled that you would choose to stop by, to linger, to converse with me. Once again I am so blessed by it.

As today rolls into tomorrow, into next week and into next month, I am once again focused on the here and now. I am looking for YOU to come! I am preparing for YOU! I am desiring to spend time talking with YOU!

I am blessed by and enjoy the presence of YOU!

  2. I'm one of the new ones!!! I'm glad to catch you now as you've re-focused and gotten back on course.
    Bless you sister!!


  3. I'm glad that I've found you! I'll be stopping by often!

  4. i don't feel neglected, but I understand what you're saying...as a blogger, it's easy to get distracted from our purpose...i do it a lot! lol

  5. I don't feel as though you have anything to apologize for dear friend. I have always enjoyed coming to your little corner for a visit. You have always been warm and welcoming and have shared such wonderful things.
    I,too, have gotten caught up in the stats thing - I imagine most of us have at one time or another. Now that we are more comfortable with all of this, we can just concentrate on what we feel is important. We are blessed to have a wonderful little community here, and we all have a part - whether large or small. I am trying to be content with mine.
    You are a blessing - always.

  6. Back at you - the part about hanging in there with me!

    The other stuff? Forget about it! Really - do!

  7. No need to apologize. :)

    BTW I sent you an email.

  8. Thank you for being so sincere. It is so easy to get caught up in all those outside distractions...I have to keep myself in check often. I always enjoy visiting with you!

  9. Can I tell you I am crying, you hit something on the head. I knew when I left for vacation my perspective was wrong. I knew I needed to get back to basics. I am trying to get there. My love is books, photos, and sharing Jesus. That is going to be my focus.

    Ok off to get a tissue, oh girl you hit the nail.

  10. I stopped by after reading about this post on Lori's blog "Lori's Reflections". She wrote the comment before mine. BTW, she's a very special person I've come to love.

    It is so important to keep our focus on what's important. I've done some of the same things you have. Glad to read this post too as a wonderful reminder.


Thank you for taking a moment to stop and chat. I enjoy the presence of you!
