Wow, I just simply can't believe this is my 100th post! And, that being the case, I just can't use this one to write my update on the fall cleaning challenge.. I would like it to be a bit more special than that.
I've been thinking about my whole purpose in blogging. I started because my daughter encouraged me to... it sounded like fun, and a good way to get some of my thoughts down in print. I especially wanted to get some of my childhood memories in print before they escaped me. I also thought it would be a good place to stash recipes where I wouldn't lose them, and to share some of my devotional thoughts. I felt as if I just wanted to share the sorts of things women would share across a kitchen table -- memories, thoughts, recipes, encouragement, etc.
And I have been blessed beyond my wildest expectations through blogging. It has been a wonderful reminder to me that our daily lives are to be a testimony for the Lord -- bringing glory to Him and encouragement to others. I have been so amazed to see how He has used my blog to bless others and to help meet particular needs in their lives. Truly, He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think!
Since this is my 100th post, I've also been wondering just how many readers I have. So, if you're reading this -- whether this is your first visit, or you only stop in once in awhile, or if you visit here often, please leave a comment and let me know you've been here at my kitchen table. And please come again!
