Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost...

This post is for the entire YCF to see should they want to, but I would mainly like to address Araken, Sapphira, Ian, Elliot, and Flinn.
First of all, it has been a year and four months since I last posted, and I will not blame any of you if you don't even bother to check my blog anymore. Even I would have given up on me by now. I am so very sorry that I've been gone this long. When I said I didn't know how long it would be until I got Internet again, I definitely wasn't expecting my absence to be this extended.
Secondly, I've looked around for the past few days, and I want to say that I am really, really proud of how far the YCF has come since I lost my Internet nearly a year and a half ago. So many members! We started out with just the six of us, and by the grace and blessing of our God, the Young Christian Force has caught and spread like a wildfire, just like we prayed it would in the very beginning. Thank you for being an example and letting your lights shine for Christ!
Finally...this past summer (July '09), we moved into a new house, and I now have full access to high speed Internet there. If you five are willing to accept me again, I would love to get re-involved in the YCF and have a chance to rebuild our friendships.
I love you all, and I have missed you more than I can say.
Never Alone,
Shelby Marie

Of course! Why would we not accept you?

Glad to have you back!

Shelby Marie said...

Thank you so much! It's so good to finally be back! I missed you guys!

Ian said...

We missed you to. ;)

At least, I did. And I still checked your blog occasionally, just with less and less hope each time...:( I was worried you weren't ever coming back.

I guess this means maybe I should start actually posting things again on my's been a while...

Ian! I'm so glad to hear from you!

I was worried I was never going to make it back either...but I'm very glad I finally did =)
