Hi Friends

Hi Friends-

I just wanted to let you all know that the Robinznest is going to be quiet for a little while. As all good bloggers know, there comes a time when we just need to be still and allow God to speak in our lives. That time for me is now.

I don't have a plan so I don't know when I'm returning. I will know when the time is right. I know that I will be posting a special Birthday post on May 19th for our sweet Tyler who is going to be turning a year old! I want to share with you what we have made for him for his birthday. I have come to know many other mothers and grandmothers of missionaries and we all ask the same question - what can we do to keep a strong connection with our kids? My gift helps with that I think - and I'm looking forward to sharing it.

In the meantime, I will still be reading your blogs and perhaps even leaving comments here and there. You have become my friends in a strange 'not in real life' sort of way and I appreciate the encouragement and good things that you share. God uses you in my life. I can only hope that He has used me in yours.

So until later, keep me in your prayers. Grace and peace to you.

I hope you find the time you need to give your attention to where it needs to be.

We'll be praying. And you can email you know :)

I will miss your lovely posts. Do what you need to do. As Becky said, you have my e-address! I really hope to make it out there to meet you one of these days soon.

I will miss your blogs. They have always lifted me up. Pray God's grace on you during this quiet time. Love, April

I'll miss your wisdom and wit! I am reminded of the Scripture that says, "In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength." Hope your quiet time will be a source of strength from Him.

May you find and experience all that you need and even more during this time of quiet and reflection!

God has shown himself to me so many times through your posts, Robin. I love coming over hear. Enjoy your hiatus and we'll look forward to seeing that surprise on the 19th:)

Robin, whatever the need is, I'm sure God will meet it. You're wise to listen and take a break from here, but we will miss you.
Prayers,
Diane

Robin, I'll look forward to your posts when you get back.

About the pattern: I bought it for fuzzymitten.com (Barbara in Canada) on her website. She says it's fine to use her pattern to make and sell bunnies but if someone asks to please let them know it's her pattern :)
I did change a few little things and you'll probably come up with your own personalizations. (The clothes are greatly changed from her pattern.) It's a fun pattern to knit!

That sentence should say I bought it FROM fuzzymitten

I understand completely, Robin. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

Before I go, I have to tell you, the little dresses you bought your little grand daughter are absolutely adorable. And you're right that it's a grandmother thing - when in doubt, buy all three of them. :-)

I look forward to your birthday post! I'll miss your posts but I know how you feel. Will be thinking of you and lifting you up. And hoping you'll be back sometime!

Hope your time away is a blessing. I'll watch to see when you return.
