An unexpected friendship

I realized yesterday that this space called "Playing Sublimely" turned one year old this week. I'm not sure that this information means anything really. I'm not sure that a blog can have a birthday, but for some reason it feels fitting to acknowledge it. It must be you that I really desire to acknowledge and recognize, because if you were not here than I would just be journaling. And if I were just journaling, I do not think I would feel a need to acknowledge the fact that I had been at it for a year...does that make any sense?

I would like to thank you for visiting me here. This online friendship we have has been unexpected, undeserved, and immensely appreciated and cherished. You have become a "girlfriend" I can talk to and visit with, and I love that. My desire is that this place will continue to be a blessing to you and to me, and if that ever ceases to be true, that I will close up shop here and move on. Thank you for reading, thank you for visiting, thank you for being you. If I had only one person read my blog each day, I would count that an overflowing blessing. So for each of you out there that is "more than one", know that my heart is grateful.

Amy

It is a blessing and a joy to be a part of your blog and be able to share in your experiences and your words. You have a gift with words, my friend. You have made me think about my God in new and different ways and I want to say "Thank You". Happy Blogaversary!

Congratulations on your anniversary. I don't know you, but have been following your blog for several months. (a new hobby - reading about other peoples lives) I started with your house tour which was awesome. I work outside the home, but the art camp was such a great idea I just might take a week off next year and offer something similar to some neighborhood kids. And of course I am always uplifted with your thoughts on God. Keep the journal entries coming.

Happy Blogaversary!
I enjoy reading your blog- I found it when you linked up to the board and baton party at the Nester's a few months ago. Your house is amazing! However, I come back because you write and express your desire to be a follower of Jesus in all areas of your life. Love that.

I like this quote:

"because if you were not here than I would just be journaling. And if I were just journaling, I do not think I would feel a need to acknowledge the fact that I had been at it for a year...does that make any sense?"

Since I tend to journal- I see the difference.
Thanks for expressing your heart. Have a happy day.

I very much enjoy visiting your blog. Sorry I don't comment very often (I think that makes me a lurker or something). Happy Anniversary and keep it up. You are inspiring!
