“Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” – Isaiah 55:6-7
I hear his footsteps even now, and my heart cringes at every stomp of his heavy boots. It won’t be long now – he will stream right through my apartment door, solid though it is. He will march his way right up to my bedside and look me in the eye, glaring with passionate glee – but I will not be able to meet his gaze.

I’d like to say some thank-yous to those who have been so kind as to become friends with me and who are a big part of this blog.
First of all, I thank my God, the Lord Jesus Christ, for this blog, for the privilege of sharing the truth, and for all my blogging friends! Most of all, I thank God for saving me from all my sins by sending His only begotten Son, Jesus (John 3:16), who is the Lamb of God, the perfect sacrifice that takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29), to die on the cross for my sins, paying the full price for my sins, and for God the Holy Spirit who showed me my need for a Savior and gave me a new heart and life! As a depraved sinner, I still sin, but my only confidence that my sins are forgiven is in Jesus Christ, my Advocate with the Father (1 John 2:1)! All the glory be to our Triune God!
I thank you all, my friends, for your kindness in being an important part of this blog and for all the support you give me! I thank Lee Duigon, author of the Bell Mountain series, for recommending me to start a blog! Now my blog’s been a big part of my life and I want to continue to glorify God with it!
Thank you, God, for letting me have this blog for two years. May I use it for Your glory!
