Moments of Simple Joy - the blog

If you'd told me six months ago, I'd have a blog, I never would have believed it. If you'd told me I'd write daily, I'd have laughed. If you'd told me it would be about my relationship with God, I have given you a crazy look. "ah. no." But, Ah YES.

It's hard to believe that it's been nearly 6 months since the inception of my blog. It's also hard to believe how much joy it brings me. There are things I just love about it.

I love writing it... I love seeing what will come onto the page. There is always something I learn when I read the final result. Reinforcement of something I needed to hear, or a newly made connection between events and emotions. Often it's a new insight into how God is REALLY working in my life. I love that.

I also love seeing how people find the blog. Links from other blogs (most belonging to people I've met since beginning this adventure!) Quite frequently, the internet searches are the most interesting to me. They seem to come in clusters. Several people all looking for the same song lyrics, or the Latin translation to "Bidden or not bidden, God is present".

I love watching the states on the map and the countries on the globe fill in as people from those locations click in. It's amazing to know that there is internet access in areas that I didn't even know existed. It has certainly broadened my knowledge of geography, if nothing else!!

I recognize certain cities and states, and link them to individuals that I know. But there are a few that show up repeatedly that I don't know... I silently greet them all, as I see them, and thank them for their visit.

It has been a gift, this blog.

Thank you for letting me share...
