It's not often that I post on a Wednesday, but God has a funny way of timing things.
Today, on the first day of Lent, I am writing my 100th post.
When I started this blog August 7, 2008, I really wasn't sure what God wanted me to do. I just felt like He wanted me to start writing. I thought that He wanted me to add to the online Catholic community to help people spend more time with God.
Little did I know that He sent me here to learn from all of you.
So this 100th post is my thank you to all of you that have stopped by here to read my posts, to encourage me, and to make me smile. You have taught me what true Faith looks like, what God's community feels like, and what real prayer sounds like. Through your blogs, your comments, your knowledge, and your prayers, you have helped me grow closer to God.
And as I have said before, for that I am eternally grateful.
I pray that you all have a very Blessed Lenten season as we prepare for the coming of our Savior.
P.S. You are probably looking at the title to this post and wondering what that equation means. Well, the 100 is because this is my 100th post. Lent starts today for 40 days. Those two added together obviously equal 140 ... which just so happens to be the number of characters Twitter gives you to say whats on your mind. So, one of my Lenten commitments is going to be to praise God via Tweets as often as I can during Lent. Not a Twitter fan? You can follow my tweets in the upper right corner of my blog. Have a twitter account? Why don't you join me and help me fill the Twitter-sphere with praise!?
