It's hard for me to believe that I've been at this for a year now!
This blog started on May 7, 2007, over at Xanga. It didn't last long over there before I moved here, to my new home! It began mostly just for me, as a way for me to journal about some of the things that were going on in my life. In fact, I didn't really tell anyone it was here! Little did I know that it would turn out to be one of the biggest blessings in my life. Before I began writing, I only read one other blog, and rarely left comments there. But once I started writing, I began surfing through others' pages as well, reading and leaving comments. There is an unbelievable amount of wonderful writing out there to be encouraged by and blessed by! In fact, I gave up watching TV--mostly because there was no time for that AND blog-reading!
I've covered alot of ground in the journey this past year, and my thanks to all who have read and left comments, as I've written about everything from the goings on in my Singles group at church (I write about them ALOT!), to the effects in my life after a young cousin passed away, to questions about prayer and fasting, and anything else that has been on my mind this past year. This blog has actually lead the way to me blogging now over on my church's Singles website. I'm not sure I would've written over there, had I not already been writing here, cause I wasn't sure I wanted to share my writings with everyone. But then one day last fall, my preacher (who is NOT the most computer-literate person in the world) stumbled upon this page here. Then I thought, "If HE can find it, ANYONE can find it, so what have I got to lose?"
Of course, I can't celebrate a Blogiversary without giving my thanks to the person who got me started at all of this. (So you can blame him!) He may not be the Blog King, or The Blogfather, but he's MY Blogfather, in the sense that I began reading his posts a couple of years ago, and was so incredibly blessed, encouraged, and challenged by all that he had to say! That's what inspired me to do some writing of my own, and Keith Brenton is still absolutely one of my favorite writers!
This has truly been an amazing journey, one that I hope to continue for years to come!
