For Everything

My blog has served to be a window to my writer-soul and has allowed creative expression of so many things inside of me. I have crafted memories here on the cyber pages of C U SMYLE. It's been a refreshing way to get to meet new people and grow as a writer and a reader. But, as with everything in life, there comes a time for change. And, while it saddens me to say goodbye, I realize that the time has come to close the blog.

Thank you so much for your readership, comments and encouragement. You've made this such a fun project! ;)

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.
- Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Awe, Denise - I'll still think of you and when I do, lift a prayer for whatever your need might be in that moment (see...we know He knows, right).

Love, blessings and pure peace to you as you venture out and beyond the blogosphere.

Oh, it makes me sad that you are discontinuing your blog, but I know I will "see" you elsewhere!! Love you!!

Awww, I know what you mean. I'm really thinking of ending mine as well - life is sooo busy right now. We'll miss you! :)

Denise...I will miss your posts. Your blog and Simply Heather's blog were the first ones I posted on when I started blogging so your space is special to me. While I hate to see you go...I want to wish you best of luck with whatever yo do...safe travels and hope you fulfill all of your hopes in the years to come.

Many thanks,

Dan

Heather - thank you! I will continue to visit your site and gain inspiration and focus and just enjoy who you are. Thanks for encouraging me along the way. ;)

Mt4S - I love you right back! Mucho grande!! ;)

Ms. Tee - Thank you for visiting and I, too, will visit your site for as long as you continue posting. I've enjoyed our short "knowing" each other and appreciate all of your comments here.

Dan - I'm overwhelmed by your thoughtfulness and I had no idea that my site was one of your firsts. I'm so flattered by you. Your comments are always sweet and your insights so refreshing. I will visit your site often and stay in touch that way. Thank you so much for your comments here - I've been blessed to have you visit.

Karen - Your site has always made me feel welcome to pull up a chair and enjoy a cup of coffee with you. I've loved the way we "picked up" knowing each other and will stop by your site often. (especially since Mr. Smart Guy and I are taking sailing lessons) lol ;) Thanks for reading here. ;)
