purple-butterfly-on-finger3 different blog websites no more! I’m making changes in 2017 (actually a smidgen earlier).  After lots of contemplation I’ve made the decision to incorporate my 3 websites into one.  You will now find “Knocking at Heaven’s Door” and “Through the Bible Together” as a part of “Purple Princess Reflections”.  Why?  A lot of energy is spent keeping up 3 websites; energy I no longer possess.  Also, I’ve been asked several times by readers, “Why 3 sites… couldn’t you just have them all in one?”  My first thought, the diversity of the subjects discussed required 3 different websites. Now I’m thinking, perhaps not. One website with 3 different focuses, a.k.a. categories just might do the trick. I’ve decided to give it a try; couldn’t hurt, right? If it doesn’t function as I hope… no tears. I can always uncombine and return to 3 websites.

3 Categories defined:

Category oneThe Purple Side of Life: Its primary focus is the tagline on my website; A Simple Woman’s Journey with God at the Helm.  In other words, it’s about my life as a Christian, a daughter of the King, living life. It’s me sharing my journey (warts and all) with others; anticipating they will find encouragement and hope for their life as I share mine.

Category twoKnocking at Heaven’s Door:  Here I explore life-after-death, researching eternal possibilities, destinations, rulers and outcomes. Being a Christian this category will have a Christian focus, yet, I plan to explore other possibilities in light of God’s Word.

Category threeThrough the Bible Together: An interactive place for sharing insights gleaned through time spent reading and studying the Word of God.

I welcome all comments, if you believe as I do, or not. I think open dialog is a good thing.

Knocking at Heaven’s Door and Through the Bible Together blog posts will be found under the tab to the right labeled, Biblical Reflections.

Changes AheadThe website design is changing a wee bit too, with the goal to make perusing the site easier.  Looking for a specific topic, use the search box on the right.  Want to subscribe and receive my musing in your email, insert you email in the sign me up box and never miss a post.  Desire to comment – click on the comments link at the top left of the website page, or scroll to the bottom of the current post and insert your comment in the comment box.

My sincere hope is by making these few changes everyone will benefit.  If you subscribe to all 3 of my sites this will be a snap.  If you subscribe to two or only one just hit the delete button when you receive a post topic you’re not interested in.  For example you currently subscribe only to the site, Through the Bible Together and have no interest in the Purple Side of Life.  When a post from the Purple Side of Life appears… hit delete and the post will quickly disappear from your in box. Quicker than you can say, “Golly Gee Whiz Moses” it will be gone.

I’m looking forward to a new and refreshed 2017 in the blog writing world.  I hope you are too!

Joyfully yours,

I became a writer in my later years. I love blogging and sharing life with others. I speak to women's groups about the Christian life.

  1. I like the idea of all of your thoughts and writings on one blog. Even though I’m relatively new here. It reminds me that one person can talk about many topics with a friend face-to-face, and switch back-and-forth between Bible study and what’s going on in their lives, etc. I have a couple of blogs I visit that go back-and-forth between recipes, Christian thoughts, Bible study, diary-like entries. God bless you. You are a great writer Sandra.


    1. I like your perspective on chatting face-to-face. We never stay on one topic when chatting with friends; do we?
      That was awesome!
      I never grow tired of hearing someone is enjoying what I write.Thank you for such kind words.




  3. What you are doing is a great idea and I really feel it’s inspired by the Holy Spirit! He knows each of us better than we know ourselves especially when it comes to what we are to do while in this life. You are wise to conserve your energy to do what you are called to do in your writing and not spread yourself too thin doing too much. You are admired and appreciated for your openness and skill with words. God bless you richly in the coming days. Love and hugs, Carol


  4. We’ll, this is certainly better than you giving up any of your blogs, or blogging altogether! I like the idea. The only other blogger I subscribe to is some I don’t even know, but she writes so well about so many things I love to read her stuff. She writes mainly about 3 subjects in her one blog: teaching and parenting, faith, and cooking. You take what she puts out and if you aren’t interested (like her recipes for mashed califlower) you just move on. I like everything in one place because sometimes I will read something, and like it, that I would not have read if it was caterogized. Anyway, with you, I’ll read anything you write. Keep on with the words! You are loved!
