Happy Blogiversary!

IMG_0764 (1)Nine years ago, I wrote my first blog post!  Well, it was really, nine years and one month ago.  But, who’s counting?

I began my blog, His Heart, My Desire, on a whim.  I had been writing some magazine articles and I was told that I needed some type of presence in social media.  So, I began with a blog.  I began writing and loved it!  I especially love the feedback from readers.  I’ve met some amazing friends through blogging.  There are so many talented people out there!

My goal in the blog world is to inspire and encourage people in whatever season they are in.  My even bigger goal is to be a light for Christ someway, somehow through my words and pictures.

When I served as a Women’s Ministry Leader in my church, I began a separate blog for that.  After I stepped down from serving in that capacity, I deleted that blog.  I also had one for Homeschool Moms, but, it was very time consuming for me to keep up with three blogs, so I deleted that one, too.

I now have the one blog and I love it!  Many times I will receive an email from someone to tell me that something I wrote inspired them and that makes me very happy!  It confirms that maybe something I say can make a difference.

All that to say, “Happy Blogversary!”  Nine years and counting.  When will I stop?  I don’t know.  I think the Lord will nudge me when it’s time to call it quits.  Although, I am now reading a book called, “5 Habits of a Woman Who Doesn’t Quit” by Nicki Koziarz.  I’ll be posting a review of it soon, so be on the lookout for that one.  Yes, I have a habit of quitting things when I don’t feel like things are just like I want it.  I have let the enemy deceive me too many times in thinking that what I do isn’t worth anything or that it is making a difference. He has been able to use people to discourage me and I took it to heart.  I’ve listened to that ugly voice more than I should.  No more!  I’m reading the book, so stand back!

Boy, am I digressing or what?  (I’ve wanted to use that word for a while, anyway.)

Thank you for being my blog friend by reading, commenting, sharing and encouraging.
