Update on SeminaryGal

Dear friends and subscribers,

I wanted to let you know that I will resume normal posting beginning tomorrow.  Over the past 10 days, my web site experienced a security issue which resulted in my web site being blacklisted by Google.  Ours is unfortunately a day and age of malicious hacking.  I want to apologize if there were any concerns you experienced about this being identified as suspect.

Upon hearing that my blog had been compromised, I immediately contacted Google Webmasters and my hosting company.  I hired a security company to perform a thorough audit and my web site has been verified as clean during this time, but it does take a while for the blacklisting to go away.  As you know, I don’t collect personal information and I don’t sell anything so there was nothing to be gained from this by anyone with malicious intent.

I did experience significant sadness and frustration, but I also received a word from God about His perfection and timing.  And therefore I also have tremendous gratitude to God for His protective hand.  I’m thankful this didn’t happen during my Advent devotional series, Incarnation, and now the security company will ensure that nothing interrupts this devotional favorite.  I wouldn’t have this protection over this next phase of ministry had it not been for this experience.  God is so good!

Thanks for understanding my absence during the past 10 days as I’ve worked my way through a process I never thought I’d be required to address as one tiny little person whose words go out with significance unknown to me this side of heaven.  It will be good to feel free to bless people from God’s word again.

With gratitude for your friendship and understanding, Barbara <><

not return to me empty
