A change of seasons

Friends,

I have thought of you so many times in the last months. And yet, my heart is still. I have often considered coming to write, but there are no words left at this point. I don’t know what the future holds, but I truly believe that, for this season, I have offered up all I can in this space. I will be disabling comments in the next few days, and while I will leave this blog space up for others to come, I won’t be posting anything new.

It’s a change of seasons, and I must be faithful to the season I am in.

I have loved sharing this space with you.
It has been a joy and an honor.

May the Lord clearly lead you.
May you be found faithful.
May your marriages be found glorifying to Him.

With greatest love,

Annabel

Edited to add: 

Based on a very sweet comment left by a reader, I wanted to clarify something. I am no longer writing here because I truly believe it is my obedience to the Lord. He has done great things in my heart and marriage, and I leave more whole and healed and full of joy and life than I have had in the last decade. I am well, and God is, indeed, so good.

  1. Sad to hear this news. You have provided so much wonderful information and food for thought, and shed light on an issue that many experience yet have no where to turn for answers. I am glad you will keep the blog up, and I do hope that one day you’ll feel inspired to write again! God Bless.

  2. God bless you and keep you. Thank you for the encouragement you have been to me and countless others. I continue to pray all is well for you and that these pages will resonate to any who are struggling.

  3. I would be lying if I didn’t say I was sad. Mostly for myself….you seemed to understand my heart. May you find the peace you are looking for.

  4. I wanted you to know that I understand but you will be missed.
    Please don’t remove the content here as it is life changing to those of us who are going through this.
    I found you a couple of weeks ago.
    I honestly was at the end of my rope.. feeling very hopeless and depressed.
    Then I started reading your blog posts…..I felt like I could have wrote them myself.
    All the other Christian Blogs out there are for low drive wives and what they need to do.
    When you are married to a low drive husband who has no other sin issues(porn,ect.) and is physically healthy—it is very hard not to take it personally.
    We grow up reading and watching on tv about how a man will always pursue you and want sex. And then when it doesnt happen, we personalize it and it can be devastating.
    I believe there are a lot more women out there right now that are going through this than we can even imagine, With husbands who are working long hours, who are beat down by feminism, ect.
    I know you are moving on….but if you ever get bored….you might want to consider putting the content here on this website into book form. Maybe for the kindle only. Really. There are women who need to hear this. Who need you. 🙂
    Thanks for being there for me.
    You have made a difference in someones life.
    You gave me hope.

  5. Oh Annabel, are you okay? My heart aches for your distress and the storm you are facing now. I know you know that you are not alone in this but I also know how alone it can still feel. Perhaps we need to write for you – about fighting the good fight, strongholds, and how to find joy in all life’s circumstances. Maybe you will be lifted up by hearing how your christian sisters have walked through the dark valley and up to the mountain top? I just feel we cannot leave you. Have you prayed about this? Do you feel God leading you to shut down the blog or is the evil one lurking about in your thoughts? I will pray and then pray some more that this is the best for you right now. If so, a big thanks for all you have done to help myself and so many others be able to accept who they are in Christ and to make changes for oneness in the marriage bed. God speed Annabel.

    • Debbie,

      Thank you so much for your words and concern! I wanted to let you know that I am definitely okay, and I am sorry if I communicated otherwise. My marriage, my marriage bed, my heart and my family have never been more whole or hope-filled. I am seeing Christ break through in light and I am rejoicing.
      I do feel the Lord leading me to shut the blog down – I think I have given all He has for me to give in this space. And I don’t leave with any sadness or regret, just a recognition of a change of seasons and a joy of following Christ’s leading.

      Thank you for your prayers.
      Under the Mercy,

      Annabel
