A few weeks ago I felt the urging
of the Holy Spirit
to take time this year to do what I call,
 "A year of Words". 
 I did not intend to blog about this
but simply wanted to keep a weekly journal. 
 Each week I would take a new word
and do a Biblical Word study.
I felt blogging would keep me
even more accountable.....

Today's Word.....



1.  Go or come after
(a person or thing proceeding ahead);
2.  Move or travel behind;
3.  Go after (someone)
in order to observe or monitor..
synonyms:  pursue, ensue, succeed.
Of course, in the blog world
we are very familiar with the third definition....
as we pursue followers who observe or monitor our blogs daily..
Sounds kinda scary......lol
I have discovered in the blog world
 beautiful house-decorating-fashion type blogs
are very popular...
but the Word filled blogs tend to be less trendy...
fewer followers....:(
I know what you are thinking....
All of you beautiful blog people out there...
before you get your feathers all in a fluff....
let me just say...
I love the home decorator fashion blogs!
I follow along with many..
simply because I want to "observe or monitor"...
all the creative beautiful ideas!!!
Many of the blogs I follow
are beautiful decorator blogs who love the Lord too.
love that!
So, when you find a blog that uplifts the Lord
Take time to follow along...
Take time to read them.....
Enjoy them....
Allow them to feed your heart.... as I do!
It all comes down to this...
As a believer, I am to follow JESUS!
To walk in a way that others see Jesus in me.
To blog in a way that others see Jesus in me...
Women of God....
Let your creative juices flow..
Show your beautiful homes...
Show your beautiful re-purposed ideas...
I for one Thank you!
So continue to:
Let your Light Shine!!!

In the Words of the Apostle Paul from I Corinthians:
"So whatever you eat or drink or whatever you do,
 do it all for the glory of God. 
 Do not cause anyone to stumble,
 whether Jews,
Greeks or the church of God-,
even as I try to please everybody in every way.
For I am not seeking my own good
but the good of many,
so that they may be saved. 
 Follow my example,
as I follow the example of Christ...
I Corinthians 10:31-11:1

I think Paul had it.....

 (A reminder I see daily in my laundry room)
As I Follow along with all of you!
I am truly blessed daily!
