Thank You

After the frenzy of the blog party, I never really got the chance to express my thanks. I wish to do so now. You all have heard me say how much God has blessed me through this blogging venture. He took a desire to "be like everyone else and get a blog" and bloomed it into something that now I can't imagine life without! :-)

I got an email from a friend the other day, one I met while blogging and who has quickly turned into a very dear lady to me and not many days goes by without an email going back and forth between us. She blessed me with a message of how God has used either the blog or me in just the right places at just the right times. I can take NO credit for this and am simply blown away that God is using me in such a way. It's amazing to think what He has been able to do through a little hobby of mine called blogging.

When you love something you don't have to work to get it done. And when others love it just as much, it makes the journey so very enjoyable. I think I would still blog even if no one read my stuff. I mean, what makes me so special that people would actually want to read what I say? But they do. And God has blessed me with that added bonus.

So I wanted to thank you, my followers, my visitors and those that have this page bookmarked and saved under favorites. You don't know what you mean to me. Each of you have been used by God at some point during this year. Whether to keep me writing during the hard times or laughing during struggles or enjoying the beauty of sunshine in the morning, you all have been used by God.

Thank you for making this journey not just fun, but a pure joy. I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving and know that I am thanking God for you!


  1. Casey,

    I can't remember how I found your blog or how long I have been a faithful follower, but I absolutely love your blog! Your inspirational posts have been a great encouragement to me, and your reveiws are very helpful! I love taking the time each morning to read your newest post! Keep up the great work, Casey!

    btw, I love the new blog layout! Very pretty!!

  2. Casey, Your blog is such a light in the blogging world. In an age saturated with "ME-ness" (even in the Christian/writing realm), your heart for Him and others really stands out. So happy your week was a wonderful success! So thrilled you asked me to take part! And so happy to see Katie here:)

  3. @Katie, your encouragement means so much! I am so glad to find young people online who have just as much determination to serve Christ, so thank you for stopping by! May God bless you this Thanksgiving!

    @Laura, bless you for your support. God has been so good to put me in your path and when we meet someday, expect a tight squeeze from my very eager reader. :) So glad you were able to join in on the party! Thank you. :D

  4. I'm so glad I could be a part of your blog last week. It was so much fun and it made it even better knowing that you have a genuine love for blogging!

    Isn't it wonderful when you get unexpected emails or encouraging comments? It really makes it all worth it huh?
