Two Years Ago Today, I Started Life Blessons...

Today, this little blog of mine turns two years old.

I started this blog with the vague notion that I wanted a means for sharing what I was learning in my life with other people. I’ve always been a lover of deep, thought-provoking blogs and I felt that it was time for me to give back and put up a little home of my own in blogland.

And so, in the midst of posts about food and decorating and random life events, are those posts about my heart and my soul and the things that God is doing deep inside of me. Those are the reasons that I write this blog, even though those posts might only come a few times a month.

That's because those are the only words I say that might actually change someone’s life and matter. They have the power to possibly push someone closer to God, to push them into his arms. And then, with all the recipes and tutorials in the world, I say, It was worth it, because of that.

It’s been two years now that I’ve been publishing Life Blessons, week after week.

I had no idea then what this little corner of the internet would turn into. I feel like now, I’ve just started to get into a groove here. I’ve found my place.

And I’ve managed to stick around long enough to see the beauty it has wrought in lives around the globe. Here are some of the kind words that I’ve received over these past two years from people who have happened upon my blog:
"You are such an encouragement to me. I pray that you will continue to be used through your blog to inspire others. Stay blessed =) "

"Just wanted to let you know that I love your blog! Very powerful! Thanks for sharing what you do on many people are reading it and you are getting them thinking! :) "

"I just found your blog and am so excited to come back from now on to read! I am always so encouraged to find fellow believers on the internet who are unafraid of voicing their love for the Lord and attributing things like job offers to Him."

"I am so absolutely ecstatic to find you!! You will definitely be on my FAVES' reading list, and plan on devouring most of your posts asap."

"I hope you know what a wonderful place you've created. You've already blessed me so much just from the little bit that I've been able to read."
Those souvenirs—words of how a single post, a single entry has helped someone see God more clearly, feel his love more deeply—are what keep me here, week after week, year after year.

Thank you so much for reading, all this time, and for sharing those words with me. Because if it weren’t for you all reading, I likely would have given up long ago.

So, with two years of posts at Life Blessons down, here’s to the next…
