A month of Sundays?

It’s been a month of Sundays. Today is officially the one month mark of this blog. Woohoo! Technically, I can’t really say that because Wikipedia tells me the expression really means like 30 weeks, but if you haven’t already noticed, I like to take plenty of creative and literary license on this blog. So I’m using it, but for a different reason. Allow me to elaborate.

As I’ve mentioned in previous entries, I can see how many views a day my blog gets. It doesn’t tell me who, just a number. Well, yesterday’s blog entry was kind of like a sermon and it had Jesus in the title. Judging by the numbers, it was not very well liked. It made me sad that it wasn’t well liked, but yet I really understand why. Every day is not Sunday!

Sunday is wonderful and important, but we live 6 other days of the week, and we are doing a thousand things. We are busy, we are stressed, we are hurting over something, we are struggling with something. We are all in this together!

So many of you readers, at this point, are my friends and family and you are all church goers. You’re mature Christians, been saved all your lives, many of you went to ORU with me, etc. And let’s face it, we’ve all heard a bunch of sermons. What I’m seeing that you connect with is when I post something that touches you, right where you are, and gives you a little nugget of insight and hope that you can put to work right there in the middle of your day. Frankly, I like that too. Those are my favorite posts. And I’m usually either telling on myself, or preaching to myself, and normally both. It’s very different from what we get in church, it’s not preaching, it’s just one person sharing her heart and exposing her foul-ups so you can say, “Hey, I’m not alone.”

My purpose in writing this blog is not to accrue readers or make a big splash, or any of that stuff. (Although I would not hate it if I became the next Pioneer Woman.) It’s simply been me obeying God when He spoke to my heart, go do something, give me something to bless. And it sure doesn’t hurt if I post a goofy photo of myself every now and then.

    Keep it up my love. You are a friend of God and He will use whatever gift you bring.
    It’s really nice to know that someone else wanders off all over the show just like me.

    Juli…. you have a talent from God to write from you experiences and turn them into lessons to share and encourage us. Not everyone can do that…Usually its just what I’m feeling or needed for the day to remind me God is still there and cares. Yes ….. we love how you do that. So please keep it up!!!! My thought for you is … is just keep on doing what your doing! Somedays it will speak to maybe only one person but that’s ok. The numbers don’t matter…..what matters is you are obedient to God and write what God puts on your heart…be obedient and leave who gets blessed for the day up to God! Its not numbers….. its just pleasing our LORD. I know this blog thing is new and you want to make sure you dot all your I’s and cross all your T’s . But in reality…. even in the days you feel you blew it, people will still get blessed. Because its not you doing the blessing it God using you for His Glory. I for one was very blessed the day you thought you blew it. It spoke to me and encouraged me and refocus my sights on God for that very confusing day I was having. So Just have fun ….write what is on your heart and leave the rest up to God! Your writing some AWESOME stuff…
    I hope this encouraged you today…. We Love what you do so keep it up!!!! Blessings, Cindy
