Recently a friend from my past contacted me. She knew my husband when they were youth and our paths crossed when I only had two of my six children. We share a love for the Lord and desire to see others encouraged in this journey of life. This similar hearts tie has kept us connected, even though we live miles apart.
She had been reading my blog!! Well, not my recent post, which seem to be few and far between, she was reading..........................OLD POST!! Those old post that show up on your blog side board, and usually are so old that they are only counted under a month and year.
She must have been determined, because she went way --------- back. She requested my permission to reprint for her online magazine.
I don't know how she found it, but she did. It is featured this month in A Bundle of Thyme, under the encouragement section of the magazine.

All of this promoted me to go back and read some of my old post. As tears rolled down my cheeks, or I laughed-out-loud, I realized that recording my journey in life was for ME! I needed to be reminded of God's hand on my life, through the struggles and the victories. I needed to be reminded that He had walked me through.........that.........and ............that..........and...........that. Post after post over the years shouted, "He hasn't left you."
As I watch our family go around a very familiar tree, as the saying goes, a repeated struggle, I was encouraged.
So today I ask you, "Have You READ Your Blog lately?" You might see that the Lord has some encouragement for you in your own words. I think this is one of the best benefits to blogging. Maybe it is time to check out those Old blog post to see some fresh words for you today. I know I have benefited time and again from all of your post!
