It's monumental, I tell you

Today, my friends, is an auspicious occasion.

It's not coincidence, in my opinion, that my 200th post would coincide with my blogiversary.

Yes, you read that right. It's my blogiversary and 200th post. (Actually with the timing of the blog-over, this is probably post # 201... but I'm the only one so detailed as to care.)

*cue Academy Awards type music*

I'd like to thank my man *snif* for not rolling his eyes at me too terribly much and for cleaning out my car just so I could show all my readers what a slob I am.

*snif*

I'd like to thank my children for such wonderful blog-able moments. You bless my heart with your stubbornness, sweetness, and general child-being. Such beautiful blog fodder you provide on a daily basis. (Yeah, I post a lot about my kids)

*about to ugly cry*

*but successfully holding it back like an Olympic athlete hearing the National Anthem*

I'd like to thank you, dear readers, *sniffle sniff* for, well, reading.

I'd like to thank the Academy... oh, wait...

:)

Seriously, I enjoy this blog and I hope you do, also. I really do want to thank you for reading like you do. But also for laughing, crying, and praying with me.


This year has marked a turning point in my life and the summer of 2007 initiated that turning point which led me to blogging. God has done some amazing things in my life personally and blogging has helped me write about and think through things.

And I've made a decision.

I have no desire to go back to the same ol' "gonna just act like a Christian" life that I had back then. I am not going to live life the way anyone just thinks I should. My life will not just be a premade life from a box.

I am all about being full-out, full-on, fully engaged in a relationship with Jesus Christ. I'm still growing in this. I still have ebs and flows, ups and downs... but I am NOT going back there. I am laying down my pride and independence and working to fully trust and believe God.

That, my friends, is a declaration. Please hold me accountable to it.

Monumental, indeed.

I'm not sure there's a better way to celebrate your blogiversary, than with a commitment like that! You go girl!

Oh, and I wanted to let you know that I graduated from what was East Texas State University, but is NOW Texas A&M - Commerce. I could've paid $50 to get a new diploma that stated it! So, maybe that's why I enjoy your blog so much, being a fellow Aggie, and all.

Happy Blogiversary! I love your commitment and I also feel the same way! It's about a relationship with Jesus, and not about acting a certain way that we think Christians should act! Praise Him!

Blessings
