Could I plan more carefully and space out when I collect writing assignments? Again, yes. Hopefully next year I will set my calendar better.
However, at this stage I am realizing I am trying to keep too many
And, with a huge shout-out to Laurie, sometimes I miss these posts. Laurie has been so gracious about reminding me and filling in for me, but despite valiant efforts to set phone reminders and write notes in every room, my Lands Uncharted posts have also occasionally fallen through the cracks.
I love my job--my students are wonderful and I feel like God has called me to my school on purpose. I also know that when we hold onto things that God is asking us to give up, we are adding stress to ourselves and we are preventing someone else from receiving the blessing God meant for them. So, with sadness, but also a sense of excitement, I am letting you know I will be taking a step back from Lands Uncharted. You will see me again in January, and I will continue to write guest posts from time to time, but I will be giving up my regular spots.
God is already moving someone else into position to take my spot and I can't wait to have the honor of introducing them!!!
In the meantime, prayers for a smooth transition for Lands Uncharted would be welcome, as would prayers for a more manageable work-life balance (with may be a little writing time thrown in) for me.
All of you, our readers, have been a blessing and encouragement to me, so thank you and God bless!
