Because of Blogging.....

"You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins."

~Jim Stovall~

I wanted to share something with you all because if it were not for your encouragement it would not have happened. Many moons ago I made a confession here about the whole writing thing. Just ten days later one of my blog entries was chosen to be published! I asked for your input on which entry and you selected this one. Well, here it is in print:
I can't thank all of you enough for giving me a deep drink from your cup of encouragement. The kindness of your words have helped me to step out of hiding and into a new season of obedience. Because of blogging I have encountered some amazing people and been afforded some equally amazing opportunities. I never dreamed when Quill Cottage was created that it would actually be a second home in a community peopled with new friends that feel like family. Many thanks to you and to Proverbs 31 Ministries for helping to spread the gift of encouragement!

Blessings,
Miss Sandy

What a rush this was! Just to see it in print. I can't imagine how thrilled you are feeling just to know that obedience leads to such joys. God's got much more in store for you, dear friend, much more and He is going to be using your talent to continue to bless many.

Hearty congratulations!
