Happy Birthday or Anniversary or New Year or….

IMG_2643I am not sure what to call it, but last weekend I renewed my domain and reserved my spot on the internet for another year and I just wanted to take a moment and celebrate.


Yes, two years ago I took a leap of faith, and with the help of FCC’s amazingly tech-savvy Fred to help me, we got this site up and running. Ok…He got it up and running, I just made up obtuse passwords and tried to write down notes on what he was saying that still baffle me.

I had no idea what I was doing.

I still don’t.

If I had waited until I actually figured out WordPress and all the gizmos and stuff that appear on my “Dashboard”….we would still be waiting.

Like every appliance or project I have ever started, I kept staring at the directions until I just gave up and jumped in.

Through it I have learned a few things….like….

if you delete the photos from your media library they also disappear from the posts…hence if you go back in the archives there are still a few with blank photo boxes waiting for me to finish finding the original pic….


there is no way to know who is reading this…which means I have been absolutely stunned to run into people or hear from people that take the time to read what I write here….


the things that I think are almost too lame to even publish tend to touch a place in many people that continues to bring me to my knees that God could use the stuff I struggle with to touch other’s lives….


you have no idea how often your random comments on the site or kind words over the coffee machine at church or a text that lets me know God used the post that day in your life mean to me.

Thank you.

Thank you for reading it, for letting me know when it touches your heart, for passing it on to friends and family….for loving me and encouraging me.

So here is to another year ahead on the Journey…


it is my joy to be walking it with you <3
