I’m BACK…..with LOTS and LOTS to share!

Going to make this quick, with a bit of an introduction, and then let the story unfold more over the course of the next few days/weeks.

I have REALLY REALLY missed my blog and blogging, but I was finding that there just aren’t enough hours in the day to keep up with a blog AND facebook AND homeschooling and caring for my family and others.  For the past few years, Facebook has consumed most of my online time and through many hurts, frustrations, and FB changing it’s format what seems like every 6 months, I just have gotten to a point that I could take it or leave it….for the most part!  Unfortunately, I have several online friends that without facebook I wouldn’t have contact with them as well as friends that have moved away from our area and/or gone away to college.   Well, one of my blogging friends that I have gotten to know better through facebook has been in a similar situation as I have, and last week she finally recognized that God was calling her back to her blog and that that was where she needed to settle.  Well, friends, for the past year or so, God has been trying to get me back HERE, to my online “Hearth and Home” where I share (without fear of offending anyone, or having to deal with arguments over difference of doctrine, or where my words are misconstrued and misunderstood) what God is doing in my life and the lives of my family, our struggles, our triumphs, my thoughts, my passions, and of course the food 🙂    Watching Sandra go through this and seeing the online sparkle come back for her, I KNEW that it was finally time to really focus on the one thing that I love about being online….being ME….and ME is on this blog!  For my readers that have been around since the beginning in 2005-2006 you know my heart, you know that my heart’s desire is to not offend or hurt anyone, but I strive to live by God’s word…. SO MANY of my facebook friends just don’t get that, even though all but a very small few know me in real life and many have known me most of my life.    While I’m not getting rid of facebook, I will be doing my sharing here, on my blog, and along with moving it (although my honey says my address can stay the same, it just won’t be hosted on our personal in-home server any longer), I have also changed the name to Lori4squaremom’s Heart and Home……that is what my blog is to me, it is an extension of my Hearth, my Home, and my Heart!   I do hope and pray that you all are blessed in some way through my sharing.

(Oh, and if you’d like to visit my friend that inspired me to get back here go visit Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom and her food blog at Full Bellies, Happy Kids

    I am SO beyond thrilled that you are back to blogging. You were and still are one of my favorite blogs from back in the day.

    I tried so hard to come back to my old blog and kept failing, just wasn’t updating as much, didn’t quite know what was going on with me, but I realized that it was the fact that my heart wasn’t in it and I was fighting the call back. SO SO SO very glad that last week I opened my eyes and answered the call because I haven’t been as happy as I am now.

    I’m glad I inspired you to get back to your blogging as well.

    Oh and I totally understand the facebook thing, it’s another reason I’m blogging rather than being on facebook 🙂

    I look forward to seeing what God is leading you to say and do! What an awesome testimony. I have to agree that fb has been a downfall for myself as well. I keep mine to stay in touch as well as keep up with many that write blogs such as you. God Bless you on this journey of faith and obedience !
