Yesterday, Steve asked, “Why do I have to look at those unpleasant ads at the end of your blog?”
Ahh, the light went on at that moment. Most of you, my very valued readers, may not know about the way things work.
First of all, thank you for reading! It means a great deal to have you taking in my words and considering them.
Secondly, thank you for commenting. That’s really the only way I know you’re reading. It means the world to me to hear what you have to say.
Last of all, my apologies for those ads. However, those are added by WordPress at their discretion, because I don’t pay for an upgraded site. I hope those ads never dissuade you from reading to the end of each essay. And if they do, please be sure to let me know.
Here’s something else you may not know. In order to remain respectful of your time, I try to keep each blog down to 300-400 words. Since I’ve already used up about half of that, let me just leave you with a few favorite quotes this week:
- “When Satan reminds you of your past, remind him of his future.” (Jim Harris)
- “Essential to parenting is being the person you want your kids to become.” (Ky Faciane)
- “We don’t have the power to control people’s emotions.” (Uncredited)
- “If you want to walk on water, you have to get out of the boat.” (John Ortberg)
- “If you’re only going to enjoy the day if your plans work out, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment.” (Joel Osteen)
- “If people determined our destiny, we would never have heard of King David.” (Uncredited, but I heard this basic point from 2 separate pastors in one week.)
- “God’s faithfulness in the past needs to motivate our worship in the future.” (Ty VanHorn)
So, which one of those strikes you today?
And do you have a favorite inspirational quote? Send it on! I’d love to read it!
