31 days of love letters
at 5:31 AM
I thought maybe I would take a break from blogging for October.
I wasn't sure that it was life-giving to me anymore, that it served any real purpose. Is it worth it? Does it point to Jesus and not to me? I didn't know, but I was getting tired of worrying about it.
And so, just as I was about to announce my break, I began to hear about The Nester's 31 Days of Blogging in October. And I kept coming back to that, as if something was telling me I needed to do it.
That doesn't make sense, I thought. I'm trying to take a break here, not write for thirty-one days straight. Besides, what would I even be able to write about for that many consecutive days?
And suddenly things began to connect in my mind. I've been a long-time fan of More Love Letters, the organization that encourages letter-writing to stragers, leaving notes of encouragement on park benches, cafe tables, etc. I don't do this as often as I'd like, but love it when I do.
I thought, why not write love letters right here? To the lovely people who find their way to this tiny corner of the Internet?
So this will be my blog for the next month, nothing but letters. I don't want to do an awkward, lengthy introduction to it, but I thought I'd give you a little heads up.
See you here tomorrow, friends :)
