    Just beginning the process of becoming a blogger…this article was soooo good. I really don’t want to get caught up in the “whose following me” “what’s my numbers” BUT I’m me and I know just how much pride I have and approval I crave — soo this was so good. As well, if I am blogging on just how glorious, transcendant and sovereign my God is it seems to follow that I should be living that out and not seeking to make sure I get heard…what He does with this blog thing is up to Him, if I really believe it is of Him and for Him. I don’t have to make it happen.

    Thanks again!!
