I ended this last year a little richer than when I started it. I met quite a few new people that I hadn’t known before and kept in touch with a number of friends that I had previously met along the blogging way. I gained a fair amount of insight and appreciation for a good number of you and learned once again, that there are decent common folks, just about everywhere you can imagine. All things considered, the benefits of committing to publishing a Christian Apologetics blog on a regular basis is well worth the investment of time and my faith has been strengthened by your honesty and perseverance.
I haven’t heard from Scott at https://scottraymondsite.wordpress.com/ for a while, would sure love to see you surface Scott and let us all know that you’re alright. I’m thinking we should all keep Scott in our prayers.
Haven’t been able to speak with Lynn Abbott at https://throughinkandimage.com/ for a while either because she’s on a bit of a sabbatical from blogging. Thoroughly understandable but I do miss her posts. No pressure Lynn (well, maybe a little), but we really miss you. I was going to put “really” in all caps but I thought that might be over doing it. 🙂
There are so many of you who take the time to submit a comment every once in a while and share your thoughts with me. Nobody knows it all and we’re all richer when we share. I’m sure we all have our “regulars” and I’ve been really blessed in that department. Beverly, SlimJim, Jeff, Pete, Kim, Linda, Ann, BJ, Bill, David, Phyllis, Frances, Rayla, Sheila, John, Jessy and Gary, to name but a few. You folks (named and unnamed) are a constant source of encouragement and I am indebted to all of you.
I don’t know if any of you do what I do when I’m in a shopping mall, but as the opportunity presents itself, I watch the faces of the people who go by. Young and old, in all shapes and sizes and all colors, people …. just like you and I. The vast majority of them are not the rich and famous, they’re just ordinary people. And, I’m pretty sure that they all have their own story to tell and those that they love.
There aren’t any elevated positions at the feet of Jesus. We’re all basically the same, whether we realize it or not, sinners, in need of a Savior. And for those of us who have asked Jesus into our hearts as our Lord, that means that we’re family. I’ve never actually met any of you but it doesn’t matter. I’m grateful for my extended family and you have been a true blessing.
May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ richly bless each and everyone of you in this coming year and may we all draw closer to Him, as our heavenly Father wills and the Holy Spirit enables.
Worthy is the Lamb! Blessings!
