Taking A Break

So....I've been doing alot of thinking these last few weeks. 
Six months of consistant blogging, learning HTML code, designing
buttons and links,
hosting giveaways and sharing our sweet everyday moments has been
fabulous. 

But in my heart, there's a struggle. 

A little voice saying maybe it's time to take a step back. To listen hard. Look deep. 
Evaluate my purpose in blogging. 
I've been ignoring the gentle prompting in my heart up until last week. 
That's when I knew for sure that the little voice I kept ignoring was really
the Spirit of God...
asking me to surrender. 


My pastor has been speaking recently on spiritual growth. 
His first two points on the subject were
Desire and Sacrifice.
I have the desire.
Now I need to sacrifice. 

My time is not my own, and while I strive to use the days I'm given 
the best way I can,
there's still so much more I could be doing. 
Bigger things with a bigger purpose. 

So I'm taking the rest of the year off from blogging. 
You'll still see me pop in from time to time...
and I have a sweet friend's guest post coming  just in time for 
Thanksgiving.

But when I come back in January, I hope you'll be as thrilled with
some major changes and big announcements to
Today Is Sweeter
as I am. 

Right now, I just need to 
seek His face!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas with all those you love...
see you in the New Year!!
