Thank you so much for the ones who first followed me...hehe. That sounds kind of weird.
Anyway, because of one "following my blog" first, (in my ignorance) I learned how to do the "blog following" feature. As I've said to some of you in comments, I'm kinda new to this blogging thing.
My friend Drea introduced me to blogging several months ago. She has given me a lot of great tips, yet I've kind of learned and explored as I go. Probably like most of you. Also, I'm becoming a little more willing to put my life out there, so to speak.
Well, this is how it happened. A few days ago, I was in my "dashboard" page, and noticed that I had "1 follower". Ok, I can't remember exactly now who it was, because I was so surprised by it and now I have like 6, but I'm certain it was one of these: Jaime, or one of the Jennifer's; Jennifer / Jennifer or Angela or even Kalle...one of these.. I am not sure...so forgive me if I am wrong. So, after I discovered that first follower, this prompted me to "investigate" a bit more.
At any rate....I got to doing some reading about blog following, and discovered I could have "daily reads" that I "followed" or actually the computer kept up with for me, and then others can add me as being followers of my blog too.
A concepts that has probably been around quite some time, but I was oblivious to. lol.
Now, I know this is probably like..."ok Jenn, you finally gettin' with the program here!" HA! But seriously, it was an illumination to me that sunk in just this week...lol.
Thanks to those who have previously and currently added me as followers.
My apologies to those who have not been "listed" as me following...but I can say this, I usually comment most of the time on the blogs I read daily (but not always every day), so you will know that I am actually following. ;)
Since coming to this realization I did notice that some who comment regularly on my blog, do not necessarily have me on their rolling daily reads...and that is something that is no biggie to me. I'm grateful for whomever takes the time to read my jargon and honestly understand if I'm not on "the list". It is just fun to see who actually follows, because not every follower chooses to leave comments. : ) That's cool too!
Also, I now have a "Button"-pretty cool! A big thanks to Andrea of "The Laughs Will Go On", who took the time to explain some technical lingo to me. Can't go without mentioning a special thanks to Drea of "Touched Photography", for doing the photography of me that I used for my button. :)
On another note that the button prompted me to think of....
I'm praying about what direction the Lord is leading me in for business. I'd love to be able to bring in a little income to suppliment our family, and do what I love to do at the same time as a ministry too. The problem is, that I love so many things! There are a few options on my mind, so would you pray with me, that I will follow God's leading in the matter?
Whatever I do, I do not want it to be solely about making the money. It is my heart that "whatever I do, that I do as unto the Lord". He owns it all, and He will supply all of my needs if I am faithful to put Him first. Sometimes I could tend to get caught up in the money part as a focus, my "flesh" can lead me toward greed and pride if I go that route. This is something that the Holy Spirit wars against my flesh on daily. So, this is my heart about it:
Colossians 3:23 (New International Version)
23Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,
Matthew 6:33 (New International Version)33But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Blessings to all!
P.S. - I'm still learning how to add my signature...lol! ik, that's pretty bad isn't it...
