I considered writing it in letter form and then scrapped that.
I tried something short and sweet and then I let my emotions get the best of me and it turned into the longest post of all time in all of the internet.
I've seriously re-written it about 18 times.
What I really want to share is that I have loved planning the three Blog Sugar events.
I loved making sure the details were examined and hand selected. I loved finding amazing speakers and I found joy in reading each of your recap posts, sharing how the Lord used that event, in your life.
Yes, Blog Sugar was a wonderful vehicle to network and meet each other. Learn about how God has gifted you. Become inspired.
I love Blog Sugar.
But, I feel the Lord is leading me down other paths and specifically calling me away from the planning of another Blog Sugar. I fought against it for awhile and tried to talk myself into planning for 2012. I tried, I did.
I contacted speakers and nailed down a day and venue.
The Lord was clear, however and I need to obey.
It's hard to write that I won't be planning another Blog Sugar event. Isn't it always hard to walk away from something that you think could be wonderful? Yes, but when the Lord leads, we each need to follow. Even when it is hard. Even when we think we know better.
Thank you for being part of Blog Sugar and thank you for seeing the vision of the evening. The Lord used it and you were a part.
I loved getting to know each of you.
Thank you for sharing your gifts, talents and unique passions with me.
It was, simply put, so very sweet.
To God be the Glory (always),
