Faith's Firm Foundation: Change Is Coming!

Change Is Coming!

Photo by Twice is Nice books
I have an exciting announcement to make about Faith's Firm Foundation.  Remember a while back when I said, "I'm finally going to do it"?  I was referring to redesigning my blog.  Well, due to circumstances, I was not able to completely redesign it at that time, but I did make a few changes, my header being one of them.  I've had to wait on the Lord's timing in the changes I've made.  Well, there are more exciting happenings coming!

I think of my blog in much the same way that I think of my home.  As a Homemaker and a Stay-at-Home Mom, I love to rearrange things from time to time.  Furniture, pictures, everything.  I am one of "those people."  I want my home to look nice, but also for the Lord to use it as He sees fit.

There are two kinds of people: those who like to decide exactly where they want their furniture, and they put it there, and never look back.  They are perfectly content!  And then there are people like me.  I rearrange furniture often.  I purposely buy furniture that will look good in either the family room or the living room (or maybe a bedroom or two!).

That is how I look at my blog, too.  The changes I make here, though, are always with the goal to make it not only more appealing to the eye, but also to make it really worthwhile for you to take the time to read.  Really Biblical and really practical.

The next big step I'm going to take is actually several steps.  Still not going to do the major redesign right now, but I've been working for some time towards the goal of moving from Blogger to WordPress.  It didn't work out as easily as I'd planned.

But, I'm finally making the move to WordPress, Lord willing, next week!  Hurray!  The move, for me, is a big change.  For you, I hope, it will be no big deal and that there will be no unpleasant changes.

However, if you do not continue to receive my posts in your inbox or reader after Thursday, June 16, 2011, please come over and re-sign up!!  Resubscribe!!  I want to continue to be a part of your life, and I don't want you to miss out on a single post.

Over the last 2-1/2 years that I've been blogging, I've continually looked for ways to improve, to learn new things.  I've thought of this blog as the Lord's blog, and I've asked Him to grow it, to expand its territory, even as I deepen the message by spending time with Him in His Word, among other things.  A little over a year ago, I switched to my own domain name:  I've "redecorated" now and then.  Now, I'm migrating to WordPress.  There will also be some minor changes in appearance, and the placement of blog elements:  so keep coming back next week to see what will be happening!

I want to give you a heads up, though, that on Thursday, June 16, my blog will be "down for the day" due to work related to this exciting move!  But, please come back Friday!

Also, on this coming Monday, June 13, I will not be having my usual linkup associated with "Mondays Are Great!"  Please check in all week.  You never know what you may find.  I may be posting some special things in light of the exciting changes being made!

Hi Wendy:

I look forward to seeing your new design. I too have been pondering a new look for Reflections and the possibility of moving to a self-hosted Wordpress blog. (Tried the free one, didn't like its limitations.) Since I already own my own domain name, it's a matter of finding a hosting site and getting a designer.

Anyhoo....enough about me. I'm thankful to have found you out here in blogland and I appreciate all you do to encourage your readers. Most of all, God is glorified in all your posts.

Blessings to you my friend,

Thank you, Denise, and Joan,
Since I have my own domain name, I, too, am looking for a hosting site. My designer is Erin from Insight Blog Design. I'm just making small changes now, with hopes of a major redesign later--but we'll see how this move goes! I think your design is beautiful, Joan. (And I like your changes, Denise!) But, I will look forward to seeing how the Lord leads you, Joan.
It took a lot of prayer and thought before I made this decision. I'd appreciate your prayers throughout the next week.

Oh, Wendy...I'm so excited for you! I have just started toying with the idea of switching over to Wordpress, so I'm anxious to hear your opinion and experience with it.

I love houses that get switched around and I love your blog, too!

I'll let you know how the migration to WordPress goes.
I'm thinking about Bluehost right now for hosting. Anyone have it?

Aww, thanks, Jamie~~
(I went right on by your sweet comment earlier!) I'm so glad you're here. You always encourage me.
You know, moving furniture is kind of another way of organizing for me--it makes me look at the "spaces" in my house differently. Sometimes I get great ideas for how to use my space better, or how things that I never thought of as a possibility even in the same room, look fantastic when I see them together. Just from moving things around!
That's fun for me:)

Wonderful! I can't wait to see the changes!

I rearrange my living room furniture at least every 4 weeks...and the kids' bedrooms about every 2 months..our bedroom is a 1 x per year, due to some very large and heavy furniture..but I love fresh changes..fresh views, same foundations!

God Bless and I can't wait to see it!

Wow, you have me beat, Andrea! I'd love to see what you do with rearranging. I love your phrase: "Fresh changes, fresh views--same foundations"! That could be a motto of life with Christ!
Oh! I love your new photo!

You're all so kind. Please pray that it will go smoothly, that Erin will be able to come up with a new look that you and I will love, that I will continue to have a peaceful heart, and that I won't lose any of you!
All your loving comments warm my heart.
