At 11:35 am on March 11, 2011, I posted the following, and in doing so entered into the blogging world with "Journey Thoughts".
As Lent begins, so does my entry into the world of blogging. It has been my desire to share my thoughts through this medium for a while now. Finally, on this first Friday of Lent, a good friend and fellow blogger, Michael Ripple, got me set up. I am grateful. He and his son Isaac are visiting.
I hope to share my thoughts on a variety of experiences and issues that touch my life. I have always referred to our sojourn as a follower of Christ as a journey, truly a journey of a lifetime. The Good News that speaks of God's blessing is too important to be kept quiet. I will endeavor to share my blessings with you. I hope that you find my posts challenging and inspiring.
Four years later as I sit at my desk and share this with you, I have shared 915 posts and have had 68,009 pageviews (times when the blog is viewed). The experience itself is a blessing, and I will continue to attempt to share with you. My postings have slowed a bit, but the blessings of the Lord have not. Thank you to all who follow "Journey Thoughts" loyally and to those who check in on occasion. My thanks to the web site of the Diocese of Greensburg for listing this blog. And may the Lord continue to bless you.
