A Letter to My Readers

Dear Readers,

    Don't worry. I haven't given up on this blog.

    But my senior year of college is busier and fuller than I ever imagined it would be, and I simply have no time to keep up with blog posts. Not if I want to read my Bible and pray, maintain  relationships, get decent grades, tutor, work on my novel, work on my senior thesis, and do well at my internship.

   My busy schedule  has been helping me see my singleness as a gift, though. I still want to be married someday. I still would like a boyfriend right now. But that would be a commitment that would have to come before a lot of the things I prioritize now.

 Right now, God has given me the gift of being able to focus on school, something that I have wished away all four years of college. Something I hope to now be thankful for.

 God knows even more than I do what I need, and in this busy time in my life he has given me the opportunity to simply focus on all that He has put before me. God knows how much of a distraction a boyfriend would be.

 That being said, I do plan on writing more posts as soon as time allows, which may be December.

 If you are reading this thank you for being patient, and I look forward to writing again as well as connecting with more single ladies.

Do you have any topics, subjects, 
or ideas about singleness you would 
like to see in a future blog post? 

Feel free to comment with suggestions!

  1. Thanks for the update! I can imagine that your senior year has you very busy. :-S I look forward to seeing your next post!
    One thing that would be interesting to write about is how to have a proper reaction to advice on being single. That is, it would be great to talk about how to take it graciously, and also not to get discouraged by anything...well...discouraging. ;)

  2. I look forward to future posts but understand you have to keep your priorities straight!
    I can't think of any specific topics I'd like to hear about...I always appreciate your choices though.

    1. Yes, sadly a science paper about conservation trumps blogging right now. :) Thanks for being patient!

  3. Paige's idea would be fun. It's kind of funny when random people give advice on finding a good husband...it's like ahh, do I look that marriageable?! I was cleaning/helping a friend's mother pack her trailer when the new owner (another lady) stopped by. Out of the blue she told me to live right and trust in God, and he'd send me a good husband. Heh, well...thanks, ok. :)

    1. Yes! I feel you. It's so hard because they truly mean well, but it comes across either that you are doing something wrong or that God will eventually give you that desire (which is totally wrong). I'll start planning a post about that.
