"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it." - C.S. Lewis

Sad and disheartening news - but all is not lost!

You must have noticed my absence of posts lately.  Well, life has kind of caught up to me, and I've had to make the hard decision to take a break from blogging for a while.  I find I haven't had time to keep up with/comment on the blogs I follow, and I really want to be able to do that to be a good blogger.  Not only that, I find I don't really have much to say to y'all that is all that important, and even though I think I certainly shall take up the internet pen once more, I think it's time for a sabbatical.  So, even though I *really* regret having to say this, this will be my last post for a while.

However, I am *not* going to delete this blog, so please keep following it, because you'll want to catch up with me when I begin again.  When I do, it will be with purpose and conviction.  You guys have been *amazing*, and I feel bad that I haven't kept up with your blogs and sites like I wanted to.

Also, a friend of mine has started an online support group that I want to share with you.  She is a really special person with type 1 diabetes, and she started this support group and website to connect with other people who have type 1 diabetes.  Please take a look - you will be blessed!

Until later, my faithful friends!  Continue to write for the glory of God!

  1. oh I am sad! But I too have not been having as much time to blog. I have had to cut back on my internet and only been doing email and blogging instead of keeping up with forums and fb as much. Its been hard,but the Lord has been telling me internet has been taking up too much of my time.

    Miss you Madeline and God bless as you strive to use your time for Him!

  2. Miss you too, Rebecca! Thanks so much for your encouragement. :D

    I hope, hope, hope that I will see you at some choir performances/parties this year! You really must come! Love you lots.

  3. Ah, farewell, Bedouin! You shall be greatly missed. :( But may you find happiness, contentment, and less stress in your endeavors, or lack thereof!

    *wonders if that came out really weird, but hopes Madeline knows I mean the best*


  4. I thank thee, Whisper of the Sly Habits! I surely hope I shall. Thou hast been a most faithful blog follower. And, with any luck, I shall see thee soon!


  5. Waahaaaa..... I'm missing you! I keep checking back here, hoping against hope thou shalt have taken up the keyboard of blogging-ness once more, but always my hopes are disappointed. Please return soon, O Madeline the Graceful! Thou art missed indeed.

  6. Your words are more uplifting than you know. (smiles) But, unfortunately, if I do return, it will most likely be next summer-ish. School is a nightmare....

    BUT rest assured, my good friend, that if I DO post something here, you will be the first to know. By email or FB.

    (until then)... Madeline

  7. Splendid! Thank you for your consolations. I understand that school makes continuing this blog an unlikely thing for the now, but I am most eager for when you do at last take it up again. :)

    Au revior for now,


'ello, chaps!
