I'm So Sorry

My dear sisters and brothers,

By the end of this week I'm doing something I've never done before. I'm removing my online presence. I am in the midst of a devastating loss, and feel a need to retreat and let my private life be private for a change. Not only am I not going to blog, I'm removing this blog. I've stopped blogging before, but left the archives here. I want to remove it now I think it's time to be over.

I will not be on Facebook. I will not be on Twitter. I'm sure at some point I will emerge again, but I don't know when, where, or how.

For those of you on the 3D Your Whole Life Journey, please forgive me. I entrust you to God's hands. I know you will do well. Carol is a reliable guide, and you can find her on the 3D website.

As for the rest of you, I'm truly so very sorry to end things this way. I thank you for these last six years. I love you, and will never forget you.

Grace to you,

claudia mair burney,
ragamuffin diva

I am so saddened by your leaving, but have tremendous respect for you for being able to grieve and heal in your own private way.

Thank you for everything.

Hi, I'm praying for you. I'm sorry about your pain. Thank you so much for sharing all you did.

For the hard stuff, I know it couldn't have been easy. For the fun stuff--like the zillions braids post; the encouraging posts like the one about Akeelah and the Bee--I'm so thankful to have had the chance to read those words.

Thank you especially for your books, especially the "Bell" ones, because without them I don't think I ever would have learned of the blog.

Mair, take really good care of yourself. God knows exactly where you are, what you need, and when you'll feel Him nearer again.

Will be praying for you much! You are loved, Mair.

And to you in our 3D group you are welcome to email me anytime here in the 3D office.

We all understand. You are absolutely adored, Mair. Know that!

You are in my prayers. The prayer warriors and I will continue to lift you up. Know that the often mystifying grace of God is sufficient. Love ya, sis!

Mair, You played a part in my spiritual growth. Thank you. I'm sorry for your devastating loss. Grace and peace to you through Jesus, Who loves you.

Will be praying that our Jesus will meet you at your very special place of need.

While I understand and can respect your need to pull away, I can't help but feel like I'm losing a friend I just made. I will consider you a friend whether we ever write or comment each other again. You are my friend. I will be sending out positive thoughts toward you. Please be safe and be happy.

I am so sorry for your pain. May you find that peace and comfort, that healing of the heart that only our Lord Jesus can provide.

You are loved so much by God and by others.

I will miss you. I've enjoyed and been inspired by your blogs and your books.

I pray for strength and courage to help you deal with all the things that are occurring in your life. I also pray for overall peace and peace of mind.

Wana said...

Oh I also wanna say don't be sorry for making the decisions that are best for you and your life...NEVER be sorry for that.

Now I'm off to finish reading Bell (yep I call her Bell because she's friend) and Jazz (who I like to call Jazzy just be cause).

Take care
