I mean happy BLOG #364! Oh yes you guys! Tomorrow’s post is blog #365… I can smell the sweetness of victory blowing through the mountain air! I’m pretty curious… is God going to give me a gigantic promotion tomorrow? You guys KNOW that he does work like that! He REWARDS FAITHFULNESS! I feel like a kid on Christmas EVE! I might even bake Jesus some cookies tonight!! lol
“The servant who had received the two bags of silver came forward and said, ‘Master, you gave me two bags of silver to invest, and I have earned two more.’
“The master said, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’
Something SUPER happens EVERY time any of us defy the unfavorable odds of failure and we demonstrate classic levels of discipline and courage… to WORK a TALENT until we have DOUBLED THE INITIAL INVESTMENT! God really does reward faithfulness! So keep doing the RIGHT THING… and keep doing it with ALL YOUR HEART… and you are CERTAIN to walk across a graduation platform!
Somewhere in the future… you will most definitely hear the words, “WELL DONE, my GOOD and FAITHFUL servant! You have been faithful in handling THIS SMALL AMOUNT, so NOW I will give you MANY MORE responsibilities!” And then your God will smile, and look at you and SAY, “Let’s CELEBRATE TOGETHER!”
Personally, every day I stay in the game… every day I wake up and DO what I am called to do… is another day closer to MY GRADUATION! And I just have this FUNNY FEELING that God is about to SURPRISE me with a GIGANTIC PROMOTION!

365 blogs is a gathering post… it’s the history maker cafe’!
Over the past 90 days, we’ve been averaging more than TWO HUNDRED unique visitors per day! Here’s why I’m presenting this stat to you guys: A few months ago, I read an interesting article about how to build a NATIONAL authors platform. This article suggested that once a blog site averages 500-1000 unique visitors per day, its blogger is considered a national voice and a prime candidate for a MAJOR publishing contract!
After reviewing the data… I’m predicting this: If it took us 12 months to reach the 200 checkpoint… maybe we can reach the 500 checkpoint within the next 6 months!
I guess what I’m saying here is this: As WE increase our readership… YOUR comments will MATTER to MORE and MORE people! Think about this… Nuala, Vickie, Michelle, Pam, Esslythe, Mel, Kristin, Puritan Lad, Nan, Rae, Elaine, Des, Melanie, Noel, Dave, Kathy, William, Sammy, Lynn, Shannon, Wendy, Andrea, Jane, Jennifer, Lisa, Justin, Carolina, Marina, Nick, Rick, Chris, Connie, Diana, Kevin, Mandy, Lynda, Debbie, Cameron, Linda, Chad, Tess, Christopher, Sara, Laurie, Terry, Mary, Vickie, Lamura, Rhandal… and so on and so on!
If we do not grow weary… we will see this happen together… and OUR influence will be multiplied a hundred thousand times or MORE! My book will get picked up by Thomas Nelson Publishers and this tribe will HAVE AN EPIC VOICE in our WORLD! Then every time we blog and comment, we will be shaping the minds and hearts of a multitude of people from a multitude of nations… and we do our part for tomorrows better world!
