Greetings on the first Monday of 2012! Can you remember when we were all focused on a new century starting? Now we’re over a decade into the 21st century.
On November 30, 2011 this blog passed a quiet third anniversary. Before 2008, I had been urged to start a blog but didn’t until I decided what one more blog could offer.
Then I realized that I wanted to focus on stories of strong women. After all that’s what I write. So I’ve tracked the number of visits and see that my blog followers enjoy authors who drop by and tell their stories of strength and of their heroine’s strength. I plan to continue those stories. I enjoy reading them too!
However, I also want to give readers a chance to tell their stories. I don’t think there is enough of this-THOUGH many of you have shared some of your life in your comments. To encourage this, I’m thinking of choosing one of the fruits of the spirit a month and asking readers (as well as authors) to share their stories that show this “quality” in action.
Here’s Galatians 5:22-25 NIV
22 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.”
What do you think of focusing on one of these a month during the 1st 9 months of this year? Would you find that of interest? Would you be willing to participate in sharing an incident from your life? Or a truth you’ve observed in life?
So– Would you be interested and participate in stories centering on the 9 fruits of the spirit?
And come back tomorrow–something new for you!–Lyn
