Thank God for You

by | Sep 12, 2011 | Uncategorized

Did you know that today, September 12, is National Encouragement Day?  It just wouldn’t be right to let this day pass without thanking all of you.  For your encouraging words over the past few weeks after being selected as an essay finalist for the First Ever Simply Stated Blogger contest by Real Simple.

For all the tired moms who sat down, found the website and read my essay.  Thank you.

For those who got home late from work and still took a minute to vote.  Thank you.

For the men and women who tweeted, re-posted and re-tweeted about the contest.  Thank you.

For those who took the time to write a kind note on the comments section of this blog or on Facebook. Thank You.

For strangers in foreign lands who wrote me.  For old friends re-found and the new that God brought.  I am thankful.

I thank God for the tribe of followers He is sending me.  Your words of encouragement hold me up, give me hope, confirm my call.  If I win, we all win.  Thank You!

So comfort and encourage each other with these words. – I Thessalonians 4:18
