    Beautifully stated! I’m thankful for the white space where I rediscovered not only my love for writing but my joy in encouraging others!

      The “White Space” is a great place to encourage others. I am so glad you rediscovered your love for writing! I have found writing can take me to places in my heart I have never been before. 🙂 Blessings to you!

    Wow! This was so refreshing to my soul this morning. I had to write a two day lesson plan on the armor of God. Fitting all that is written into three short 20 minute segments! That was difficult. Then the Lord just quietly spoke to my heart and took the reins out of my hand. White space….I’ll never look at my screen the same. Thank you my sister. Love you.

      Kaboom! God has given you some amazing gifts, and there is no doubt your ‘White Space” was filled with love, truth, and wisdom from the Lord. I am sure your little ones were beyond blessed! Thank You for your encouragement. It means so much. Love you!

  3. I have more stuff than white space😀😀This means I need to refocus on the things that are important. I read blogs everyday with great advice, words of wisdom and tips, but I walk away everyday and live just like I’ve been living . Not sure what that says about me. Hmmm.. maybe that’s an idea for a post.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      I think we all could say we have more than “White Space.” Sometimes it is just a matter of going back and like you stated …refocusing on what is important and what we should let go! I can’t wait to see where God takes you for your post about all of this!

  4. The White Space is one of my favorite places. Thank you for the reminder just before July 4 that it is a freedoms not to be taken for granted.

      Hi, Terri!
      My prayer is you will find your peace, joy and rest in the “White Space.” I love what you put in your “White Space.”

  6. Sheila, this was a good reminder of our responsibility as bloggers and writers that what we put out there needs to be done with kindness, humility and responsibility. I appreciate the accountability that others can give me for what I am putting in that white space. Great thoughts. Thanks for sharing. Praying for your hubby’s quick recovery. – Amy

    Lord, we thank you for taking such good care of us. We pray over Sheila and her husband as he recovers from hip replacement surgery. We pray his recovering will be speedy and that you will give Sheila the extra strength, patience, peace and rest she needs to take care of him during this time. In Jesus name – Amen!

    That’s my white space!

    Everyday I feel the responsibilities of this and pray I use it for God’s will and not squander my time.

  9. White Space used to be really intimidating to me. But lately, God seems to be blessing me with fractions of his creative genius and that white space is filling quickly. I am loving it!

    so beautiful! Such a good reminder, which also, on some days, completely overwhelms me, but you are right… it is a GIFT!
