Press Pause for November


After much consideration and in light of current life circumstances, I would like to fill you in on the days ahead for me here at this little corner of the Blogosphere called, Beneath the Surface: Breath of Faith.

First let me tell you what writing, and specifically, blogging has meant to me over these past few years. I believe writing has the power to save. It has saved me again and again from the pit of depression and despair. It has saved me from feeling I am completely alone. It has been a true Faith and Life Preserver for me in tumultuous times. Writing has kept me from coming undone. Literally. Blogging actually added an unanticipated surprise: Community. Fellow, like-minded, lovers of God and words, who get me. That is beautiful…a precious gift.

I am not unplugging completely, but due to serious personal life circumstances involving a loved one, I must PAUSE from my regular blogging activity and I will return to my journal pages (almost) exclusively, during November. During this time, I will have limited access to the internet. I will be able to respond to e-mails, via my phone throughout the course of the week. I do have some scheduled posts and book reviews planned, but may not be able to share or link consistently. I appreciate your visiting, reading and sharing posts that you love, and will visit and keep up as time and schedule allows. Grace will be needed and grace I leave with you, my friends.

Oh, for those who are doing November’s Second Chance Fitness Challenge– I may have to save my additional plans for January. Please feel free to e-mail me questions ( I will do my best to get back to you) , and also to check out the link at the top left for the 31 Days of posts and supporting links.

Prayer for our family is greatly appreciated.
I will pop in periodically as able.
Grateful for all of you, and this crazy Bloggosphere.
In His Grace, Dawn
PS: I’ll be back!

  1. Praying for you and your precious family. Family is ALWAYS first, no matter what. Perhaps someday you will be able to share journal pages from this time of growth and leaning on Jesus. He will carry you through whatever difficult days are before you. Know that your friends out here in the blogosphere are here for you always…we will hold up your hands while you fight these battles…prayer changes things! You will be missed here, but we know you'll be back perhaps even stronger than before. Trusting God for that. Love to you dear friend.


  2. Go with God. That is the first thing that came to mind and I believe it is appropriate. Family first dear lady. You know you have our prayers and we are here at the tip of your fingers for additional support. Re: the workout, I am good to stick with the oct schedule. It works for me and I too am trying to cut back on my online time. Love you Dawn!Susie


  3. Hi Dawn! Oh my goodness, my heart goes out to you at this time of trial. I have so enjoyed your posts and spirit. I am sure that same spirit will bring you through your current troubles.I pray for you always, because you are a follower of mine, but know that your special intentions will be in my heart. Please rest easy, knowing of all the support of your blog-friends. Peace be with you. I'll look forward to whatever you post, when you can. And be patient, waiting for God's healing.Monday blessings,Ceil


  4. Praying my sister…I will be thinking of you often this month and into the new year…will miss your voice hear, but know this is the best choice to turn your heart toward home and your loved one…pause is good!
