So, a while ago the few of you who occasionally peruse my blog when you can find nothing better to do, may remember that I did a post when my friend Carol died. That was a normal thing for me to do–when I get overwhelmed I let my overflow of words out so as to better organize my thoughts. I can honestly say that I did not intend for anyone to read it.
I am fully aware that this is a blog on the internet, so anyone could read it if they wanted to. But I did not intentionally share it on Facebook or Twitter or any of my other personal sites. I am really weird about having people I know read my writings, but the (few) people who do read my blog posts are people I don’t know in any way, so it doesn’t bother me as much.
Anyways, to the point–a couple of days ago I got a message from Carol’s mother, who had somehow stumbled across that post and she told me how encouraging it was to her. She also asked me if she could share it with other mutual friends who knew Carol. I was very hesitant, but hearing about how much it meant to her to read it, I decided that I was okay with it. I just prayed that nobody would read it at all unless there was something they could take away from it. And I prayed that if they took something away from it, that it would not be my words, but God’s Word.
The number of views that my blog has gotten just this morning is…phenomenal. The comments and messages are pouring in, all with people like Carol’s mom, who found encouragement from the words that God put in me. So, here I am, overwhelmed once again, and pouring out my excess of thoughts. But I really just want to say thank you to everyone who has been reading it. Thank you for your warm words and positive feedback. To God be the glory.
