Keep Calm and Try Again

March 31, 2014 | My Jottings

keep-calm-try-againIt has been a while since I’ve written on the blog. I took it down for a few weeks because a sick person was stalking pictures of my grandson. It made me angry and disgusted. Even though that person is a person, I wasn’t having charitable, gospel-sharing thoughts about him. I pray he never visits this blog again, and since all bloggers have a dashboard that allows them to check what searches are being done on their blog, I’ll be checking it now.

It doesn’t mean we can see who you are, but we can see if someone does a search in our search field, and that’s what was happening. And I learned there are things one can do.

If it happens again, I’ll have to make the blog password accessible.

So much has happened in the last month, I don’t even know where to begin. So I won’t begin right now. I’ll try to find the opportunity in the next few days to share.

I just thought I’d put my blog back up, say hello, and see if anyone is still out there. 🙂

God bless your week, and I’ll be back soon. After the new snowstorm that’s coming.

    I’m so glad you’re back. I have missed reading your blogs. Am praying for you and Michael.

    I’m so glad I checked again this morning to see if you were up and running. Yay!
    I love your blog so much and was sad every day it was down. 🙁

    Hello Julie…….
    So glad “you’re back”….and grateful your blog is back too! I’m sad to hear about the misuse of your information regarding your grandson. Disturbing! Sometimes I would go into your past blogs and read over some of your older posts as you often give interesting insights, tips, recipes, good books to consider, music choices…love of family support, etc…..all balanced with Godly wisdom that shines through. (yes! even the quirky silly things you sometimes mention …. that reveal you as “one of us”! 🙂 I’m certain your readers will agree it is a God given gift you have to write and encourage others. One that you have been so faithful to share. So I truly miss you when you’re “not there”. And am certain the “enemy of our soul” doesn’t like to see you spreading God’s message of goodness & hope via the heavenly air space!
    Will add to my prayers that your blog draws people nearer to Jesus & protects your family members as you continue to share your life and heart.
    Without it I would never have “met” you. My life has been enriched & spirit comforted over these past two years because of our “acquaintance” here.
    Blessings & love sent to you today….Linda

    Dear Julie,
    So glad to see you back; so happy to look at the post from February where you and Michael are enjoying a moment of laughter and love!

    Continuing to hold you all close to my heart as you walk your path. I know you will keep me close as well; it really makes the steps less difficult on tough days and more light hearted on good days!

    Hope you have a peace filled day!
