Thankful

I’m very thankful for all of the people who prayed  for "Tech Support" the last few days.  How wonderful to share a prayer request for someone in a country far from this one and see an outpouring of people who pray.  I was very encouraged to see your response to her.

 

I continue to be very grateful to all of you who read these posts.  Some of you comment occasionally and some very regularly.  I have known some of you for a long time.  Others of you now seem like longtime friends as I have interacted with you through comments and even e-mail for several years.  Then, of course, some of you are fairly new to this blog and I am thankful that you are here.   

 

This blog began four years ago.  At the time, I did not know what to expect from anyone who might be reading.  I did know that writing helped me think through what was on my mind/heart.  Since then, you have been a constant source of encouragement.  Some of you comment occasionally or regularly.  Others have sent notes or have indicated on Facebook that a particular post was meaningful.

 

I like this medium.  It enables me to write something that I hope will be useful to you.  Sometimes these posts originate in what I’ve read or in some particular experience.  At other times, I am thinking about some dimension of life and choose to write about it.

 

Ultimately, I would hope that the posts generally reflect the name of this blog.  After all, I do believe that we are only fully human when we seek and hunger after God.  I really believe this.

Update: You might enjoy my Facebook page or even Twitter.  I have found both to be very useful.  You might enjoy browsing through some of my bookmarks on my del.icio.us page.  I use this regularly and am constantly adding new bookmarks.

 

You might enjoy looking at God-Hungry Live for new videos that have been added.  Videos are added to this collection very, very regularly.  A number have been added in the last two weeks.  (Go to the top, middle portion of the page and look for "playlist" to see the videos that are available for viewing.)

 

Finally, "What I’m Reading" in the right hand bar has been updated.
