1000th Post!

Hard to believe, but this is my 1000th post! It is amazing what a blessing this little blog has been to me - each of the lovely friends who visit have made it such a place of encouragement and refreshment for me and I am so thankful. I am also thankful for my "blog-mother", Megan, who inspired me to begin this in the first place!

Dear Lord,

As I was reflecting on what to post for this "big" post ~ you brought it to my mind to offer a prayer of thanks.

Lord, I am so thankful for the wonderful friendships I have made here. It has been such a blessing to meet so many kindred spirits as we are journeying on the same path of striving to live for You and have our homes be reflections of You.

I thank You for the lovely ladies who visit here. I pray a special blessing on them today. Thank You for using them in my life and for showing me Your love and kindness through them.

I also want to offer this place for Your use. I pray that all I say here, all I represent would honor You. I pray You would be glorified and that our words to and about one another would be edifying and encouraging.

Please continue to make this little spot on the internet a place of peace and refreshment. I am so thankful for this opportunity, Lord. Thank You!

In Jesus' Name,
Amen

And Father I would add that as you use this blog you would bless Monica. Thank you for her Father and that she loves You and wants to serve you. What a rich blessing in our lives to *know* women you have raised up to encourage and edify! I pray Monica would be blessed all her days with peace in her ministry as Wife,Mother, and Friend. May she continue to be used by you Lord in the spirit of Titus 2 and sister in Jesus for Your Glory. Thank you for this light Lord to brighten our days. Amen.tammyp

Yay! I have three to go before hitting 1,000. I've never done anything for any of my big numbered posts. I'll probably forget in three posts, but maybe I'll think of something... :)
