I am blessed... Thank You

One always wonders if what they write on their blog, is read by others? I have always looked at blogging as a kind of online diary or prayer journal and if I am blessed enough to have someone read and comment it's a gift! I love reading my online friend's blogs as well! Even when I cannot post a comment! I have some very special Siestas who post comments, but I have always wondered... is that it? Are they the only ones reading? I have found out after the post about my grandpa that many, many of my dear friends do read as well. For that I feel truly blessed! I am so happy that whatever God puts on my heart to write about - however elementary my writing skills are, that it's touching someone! It's truly in my heart of hearts what I wanted to happen here!

So for all you gals who are reading and don't know how to post a comment, or choose not to... thank you! Bless you and I hope my blog can be a place where you find God! And for all my "Siestas" I have been touched by through the LPM Blog and blogland - I am praising God for you too! The internet has connected Christian women, who otherwise would never meet! For that reason God gave me the verse I have at the top of my blog!

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. ~ Phillipians 1:3-6

Lord God, thank you for the gift of friendship. Thank you that you have given me wonderful Christian women to share the Gospel with! Thank you for the opportunity to witness Jesus Christ! Thank you for your son, who saves us from sin and will raise us in Glory!!! Amen

Hi Kristen-- thanks for that sweet comment. I am glad you liked what I wrote. It was sort of a strong post so it was nice to get that validation after I stepped out and posted it! Thanks for deeming it "forward worthy." That means a lot!

Ditto my friend! You words are not elementary or unnecessary. They are purposeful and always lead me to ponder our Creator at a deeper level.

Keep posting because I will be anticipating the read.

Hi Kristen,
I agree I started blogging about a month or so ago, and I wondered if anyone read my blogs, I feel it is very important to have friends that you can share and fellowship with... I really enjoy your blog, so anytime come check mine out... I pray that you have a great day...

Hey Kristen,
I am just catching up on your most recent posts. I love the slideshow, it looks like you have wonderful friends and family!! I want to just jump in there and hang out with you all!

I really do love to read your blog, it is encouraging to me and your love for the Lord is so apparant! I know what you mean though about not knowing if anyone is reading it or not, it is kind of strange to just write, put it out there and not know what happens next. I do believe though that God is using it.

Yum, the fresh vegetables just scrolled by in the slideshow. I can't wait for summer.....

Take care and visit when you can.

Love, Kelley

Hi Kristen! I know exactly how you feel. I find myself praying for all of my Siestas while I am in the shower in the morning. It's amazing how many wonderful Christian women we meet and remember their story! I am Thankful for having you as my Siesta, especially today!
Much love,
Angie xoxo

I could use your help. I am trying to survey as many women as possible to find out what ten struggles they face as a Christian woman. If you have a few minutes, I would love your input on my blog in regards to the ten struggles that Christian women face. Thank you!

Please pass this on to your friends as well.
