500th Post! Well actually 504th post, but whose counting!

Thought I should recognize my 500th post! I can't believe I've made it, especially since I have been blogging so little. I have been mulling over this post for days, thinking what clever thing can I do? What do I want to do?

First of all I want to recognize a few people who are such an encouragement to me in the blogging world:

Mari @ My Little Corner of the World - If I get one comment on a post, it is from Mari! She is such a faithful bloggy friend and church friend. Thanks Mari for always coming by and leaving a sweet comment!

E- Mom @ Chrysalis - E-Mom has always had wise words of advice for me here in bloggydom and on Facebook. I so appreciate all the things I learn from her and her blog!

Linda @ Mocha with Linda - First of all I love her book reviews! Sometimes I have way to many books to read because of her (shame on you Linda!!!) Also when she posts her "Then Sings My Soul Saturday" posts, I'm always brought back to my childhood, with all the wonderful old hymns! I don't know where she finds those videos!!! She is so funny, and sometimes I think she's the Texas me because our lives have paralleled at times.

There are so many blogs that I still love to go to, and get so much enjoyment from, just not as often as I used too! Thanks for everything!

O.K. now I have a selfish request! I have never gotten many comments on my blog, and I would love to see how many comments I can get for my 500th post. Since I don't get many people by these days, I was wondering if I could get help from my faithful readers : - ) There will be something in it for those who comment.

Since there are three things I love: My Heavenly Father, Coffee and Stones, I would like to have a give away to one commenter. A copy of one of my favorite devotionals, a pounds of my favorite coffee (Winter Wonderland (I drink it in the summer too, tee hee)), and a stone from my favorite place on earth, the UP of Michigan!

Thanks for the ride!

Could I be the first commenter? I can't remember if you moderate your comments so I guess it's possible that there are other ones before me. I guess I will know as soon as I hit enter.
I hope you are enjoying your first day of no school!

Ha. I am not commenting to get something! I just saw your post and wanted to congratulate you.

Many blessings to you!

Mocha with Linda said...

Happy 500th-ish post! And thanks for your kind words about me.

Hugs to you, and here's to 500 more!

Congratulations on 504 posts! I think you've shared a lot of wisdom in all those posts.
I really do appreciate you and your blog. I love the variety you have here - short posts, long posts, posts on family, posts about God, things about travels, our country, dogs, chickens and even stones! I never know what I might find, but through it all your love for our Heavenly Father and your family always shines through.
So - thanks for all you have shared with us!

I too enjoy your blog. I should have talked to you at the open house for Matt. I was busy talking to my family and then you were already gone. Sorry.
Enjoy your summer.
