So yeah, after church on Sunday I came home, logged on to my email and found that the wonderful team from BeingRebekah had nominated my humble site for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! Being a Sunday afternoon, I promptly dozed off for my afternoon nap…age has a big part to play in that decision..
So anyway, when I got up on Monday.. (kidding! it was still Sunday) I was dumbfounded and really surprised. I started this blog about 8 months ago with a desire to share my collections of ‘musings’ – I have been collecting random pieces of thought from my daily devotions and quiet time with God and I wanted to put them down someplace so that I would not forget them.
Initially I was disappointed to find that the highest daily readership of my posts was 0. Then I found that I could inflate the numbers by viewing it myself. That didn’t last long. So, long story short. I made a commitment to God that I would only write what He speaks. I will not bang my head on the wall to come up with topics. God has been faithful to my promise – he has been providing the spark to keep me going all these months. My daily readeership is above 0 now, but only just slightly. But you know what? It doesn’t matter – if God intends for his message to be read by a particular person, then all I care is for that one person to read it.
So without further ado..the VIB award:
