It's a God Thing

     Today marks the end of two years of blogging.  Can you believe it?  Time has gone by so fast but I've enjoyed sharing my highs and lows with you.  'It's a God thing' that I have this resource to convey with you how God is working in my life.  I'm a work in progress, as we all are.  'How am I?  Still working on perfect.'  Yet humble enough to know I'm so far from it.
     I've thought long and hard about whether I should continue blogging into my third year.  My fears are mostly of being repetitive.  I've heard two sermons in the last month that have encouraged me to continue on.  One on how many times God tells us He loves us in the Bible.  The books Matthew, Mark and Luke have the same topics and even verses because God knows we need to hear things more than once.  So repetition is good sometimes.
     The second sermon was on being an encouragement to others in many ways.  2 Corinthians 1; 3-5  ''Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.''  If I can help others through my stories of how I handle my suffering moments and trials, then I think it benefits both me and my readers.
      So thanks for hearing me out for the past couple of years and may the third be just as encouraging to you and me both.
