“One and counting” or “It’s that time of year”

Well, since you haven’t guessed, I’ll let you know that today is the one year anniversary of this blog. I’m not even sure what my thought process was, but a year ago today I launched this Web site and started jotting my thoughts in digital ink.

This is also entry No. 200. A little 2 for 1 action going on. It would have been really neat to lauch my new Web site in time for this event. Just didn’t happen. But, it is in the works…so keep your eyes peeled. Not exactly sure what it’s going to fully be yet…but it will be an upgrade. Always moving foward, folks. Never going back.

Anyway… it wasn’t until Sept. 9 that I sent out the public-awareness e-mail inviting people to read by blog, but nevertheless Aug. 25 is the anniversary. My first entry was fittingly posted at 2:10 a.m.

So, what does one do on an anniversary? Reflect, of course. See where one’s come from…what the journey’s been like, what’s been learned… That sort of stuff.

I’ll spare you the reflection. If you want to journey with me through the goings-on of the past year or so…well…it’s all right here, just a few clicks away. Check out the archives; they’re broken down by month.

Links to a few major events:

I will say this: I’m miles ahead of where I was a year ago…personally, spiritually, professionally… across the board. And I fully expect the same to be true next year at this time. Hard to even imagine what life will be like then, but I’m looking forward to it.

In reading, again, some of the blogs you listed I can say you have grown in the past year. It has been an eventful year, to say the least, for our family. Our experiences have drawn us closer together and have helped us experience a relationship with God that has allowed us to know Him in a more intimate way. By abiding in Him through the devestation of Chase’s accident and Joyce’s death, He has revealed Himself as a Comforter, Provider, Shelter, Rock, Great Physician, Faithful Loving Father, Redeemer and much more. He has shown us that He can take what Satan intended for evil and use it for His honor and glory and for our good. The Newsboys song lyrics you posted states that so clearly. Thank you Joel, for sharing your soul with us and leading us to the Heavenly Father’s throne on many occasions.
