Thankful Thursday - Bloggy Voice

It's Thursday! Time to reflect on what I'm thankful for today.

I was thinking yesterday about how thankful I was to have become part of the blogosphere. I am excited about all the people I meet and the ideas shared on blogs -- I have learned so much!

I count my blog as one of my greatest possessions. It is free, but I have to put some work into it. It's just a little blog right now, but it contains a lot of my thoughts, ideas, pictures, and recipes. It means a lot to me.

My dearest hope is that someone will visit my blog and see that I love the Lord. I hope to encourage and edify believers, and make non-believers consider Christ. If I can do that for just one person, I will be thrilled!

Thankful Thursday is hosted this month by Lynn at Spiritually Unequal Marriage. Visit her blog and see what others are thankful for this week.

Jerri, I feel exactly the same way. My friends who don't blog don't quite understand it, but I have been so spiritually uplifted by the articles that others have written on their blogs, and the friendships I have made. I'm glad to be getting to know you better!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog..and I agree with you about posting on the blog. It is such a great way to journal the little tidbits that go on in our life plus give glory to GOD. How awesome is that? Mighty!
God Bless.

I feel the same way about my blog. Isn't it great to encourage others? I especially love to be salt and light to people who don't have a personal realtionship with Jesus ...yet. I enjoyed visiting you and will come back. Thank you for visiting Heart Choices.

I have a friend that says her blog is for her kids. So that someday they can read the posts and receive advice on parenting, find recipes and just plain remember the fun times they have had as a family. She says it is her family journal.

She also wants to show the world how Jesus has blessed all of her family!!

I love that thought that you two share. I must admit that I was selfish as to why I started blogging. I pray we all touch not just fellow believers but capture new hearts for the Lord.
