I just want to sent out a huge thank you
to all of my dear blogging sisters.
Blogging has been a blessing in my life.
I've been able to share my humble blog
with all of you . . . but what is so much
better is that I've been able to visit your
blogs and see the projects that you are
working on and all the things that you do
to create a beautiful home for
your family and friends.
That's the reason that I started blogging
in the first place and at that time
I had no idea of the friendships
that would develop while all the sharing
of ideas was going on.
Through this media I have been blessed
with some beautiful friendships.
A few of these friends I have had
the good fortune to meet in person,
but most will remain blogging friends
and we'll never meet,
that is unless you are true believers
and then one day
we will have a marvelous reunion.
When I started, I have to be honest
I wanted to see my followers increase,
you know seeing that number go up
was a thrill to me and I did things
to encourage more followers.
Now when I look back, I'm ashamed of myself,
because the few good friends
that stick with you are golden.
I probably have 50 or so blogging friends
that I absolutely love,
they have shared advice,
encouraged me when my life took a nose-dive
and prayed for me and Steve
in our hardest hours.
When you have friends all over the world
praying for you and holding you up to Jesus,
it's fills your heart with joy and gladness,
even when life is pushing you to your limits.
For all of you that have stuck with me
and put me in your prays
I say "thank you"
from the deepest part of my heart.
Do you know that I had
a sweet blogging friend in Tasmania
that told me her entire church
was praying for Steve and I.
When I told him,
his eyes filled with tear joyful tears.
Well, I don't want to go on and on . . .
this is a blog and should be short and sweet
(too late for that, right)
just please know
that I appreciate each of you.
You have blessed my life.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
