Six months after launching Becoming Me I have reached that bloggy milestone of post 100.
I've been wanting to do something special and different for this post...the "100 things about me" posts are fun to read on the blogs of others but a post of that nature just wouldn't belong here.
I wish I had 100 prizes to give away, but frankly, I'm still working on getting my prizes from the Blog Mission Tour delivered (note to self and future blog tour planners ---holding a tour with prizes two weeks before moving to another state is bad timing).
As I spent the week pondering what to do, I thought about all of you who read this blog. I've known some of you for years and many of you I have just gotten to know throughout these past six months. And there are many more of you whom I do not know at all.
Regardless of our relationship with each other, I am grateful that you visit Becoming Me.
In the spirit of friendship and Christian community, I'd love to know you better...so I'm asking...
would you please leave me a comment today? Just tell me who you are and one thing about you. Perhaps your favorite scripture verse, or a prayer request, or a victory you've recently experienced? You can also ask me a question and I'll answer it in the comments section. I promise that in one way or another, I will personally respond to every comment I receive.
Since it is my 100th post, I think 100 comments would be groovy...(Don't we all have an inner Marsha Brady?)
Again, thank you for being you.
And last but certainly not least, I want to share a scripture that has been on my heart. As I wrote in the post before this one, some old memories had been unearthed and at one point of the week I was feeling down. During a time of prayer and tears, God led me to this marvelous verse and a wave of love washed over me. I felt as though I was sitting face to face with my Father who was giving me a pep talk of sorts...like the ones The Professor gives to Pumpkindoodle.
These words from Psalm 45:10 were written thousands of years ago, but on Monday night of this week, it felt like the were written just for me.
"Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear: Forget your people and your father's house. The king is enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord." Psalm 45:10-11, NIV, emphasis mine.
