No, I'm still here :)

I realize that in the world of blogging to not blog in about a month is an eternity, but please bear with me (please). It's not been the rush of Christmas or pregnancy that has kept me from it, but rather an intentional fast from it as I have been examining my reasons for blogging, and trying to determine whether I am simply doing this for my own pride and vanity or whether it has been for the furtherance of God's glory. It hasn't hurt that in this same time period, my husband has had a mysterious ailment for which we are still testing and will be seeing a specialist for, my father was told he had cancer, but after further testing that there was no sign of the disease (Praise GOD!!!) and he was recently hospitalized for heart problems (he's home now, again Praise God!).
I am now realizing that God knows me better than I pretend to know myself. (Duh.) He knew that if He didn't create reasons for me to not blog for a while that I might be drawn into doing it anyway. So, after a spell, here I am again.
I am hoping that this will give God glory as never before as I seek to be fully satisfied in Him. I'm not trying to offend, but will endeavor from now on to seek only His approval in what I write. (Yes, that means you may be offended and disagree with me, but I feel as though I must do this.)
So, Crumbs Under My Table may look and read a little differently now, but I hope it will be for the edification of myself and others, and that most of all God, my Savior, Jesus Christ being glorified in it will be the ultimate and supreme purpose for my writing.
I am sure there will still be silly mommy stuff, too, and boring me, and I will never be able to be one of those daily blogging people (How do you do it?!?), but will try to be somewhat consistent. (I am 32 wks pregnant though, so I'm making no promises there when I have a newborn).

"Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."-Ephesians 3:20-21

Glad you're back.

Raising Arrows has a good blog you need to read today on JUST this issue. And I quote...

"Are giving your talents and gifts to God, expecting His power to be seen through them?"

She's specifically talking about the fear of pride in her writing.

Still praying for you all.
