You may not know this, but I read a lot of blogs. No, seriously, a LOT of blogs. For some reason, I have to go to the very beginning and read through all the archives until I’m caught up, then I’ll usually check them daily. You can get an idea of what I’ve been reading by checking out the list on my right sidebar, if you’re interested. It’s amazing the stories you can find and the people to whom you can grow attached just through their stories and pictures. Sometimes there’s a happy ending, or you find a family that you can learn from, and other times the story is desperately sad and makes you thankful for your easy life. As I’ve been bouncing from blog to blog, I’ve seen some standard things, and probably you have, too. Things like Wordless Wednesday, Thankful Thursday, and one I’m thinking about joining called Not Me Monday. I always tend to forget to be wordless on Wednesday, and while I am definitely thankful on Thursday, I tend to forget to post about it. So, in hopes that having my own idea for such a thing can make me responsible (ha!), I give you….
I know, you’re thinking TGIF just like I am. No matter how much you love your job, we all thank God it’s Friday, right? Weekends are the best part of working, honestly. But that’s not what I mean…I mean truly Thank God. It’s Friday. I’d like this to be an opportunity for me (and my readers — you’re not getting off the hook) to share prayer requests and praises, to come to God with thanksgiving and our deepest needs. All of us praying is much more effective than just lil’ ole me.
Disclaimer: Please don’t run off if you’re not Christian — pray to your god as you see fit. Or if you don’t have a personal belief, take some time to offer a kind thought, good vibes, whatever for the things we all share. I make no secret of the fact that I’m a Chrisitian, but I try to respect the faith or lack thereof of most people. What’s completely, totally, undoubtably right for me may not be your cup of tea. Whatever, join in.
So, here’s what we’ll do. I’ll let you know what we’re praying for around here, and things we’re thanking the Lord for today. And you can leave your prayer requests and praises in the comments you leave. While we’re at it, let’s talk about comments. 50 Baileys Points to Just Me for commenting so very faithfully, and letting me know that she’s checking in on my life. 10 Points if you’ve ever commented before. Of course, Baileys Points get you absolutely….nothing. Except my love and respect, of course! But according to my Live Traffic Feed and Google Analytics, there are a lot more of you lurking here on a daily basis. Don’t feel bad — I’m a lurker at heart, too. But please feel safe to come out and comment, especially on Thank God…It’s Friday. De-lurk!!
Brian seems to be feeling much, much better. He has less migraines and dizzy spell these days.
