Welcome To My Blog

I haven’t done this in awhile, so let me tell you about my blog here. I’ve been doing this for almost 14 years now – first on Myspace – then on WordPress – then on Facebook – and now on WordPress again. Over these past 14 years I’ve posted over 2,400 blogs – 310+ on Myspace, 220 on Facebook, and 1,880+ here on WordPress.

I’m a consistent blogger. I post new blogs at 3 AM U.S. East Coast time every Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. A few times per year I’ll post a special bonus blog on a Tuesday. Last year (2020) I posted exactly 200 blogs. That was up from 191 in 2019, 167 in 2018, 93 in 2017, 79 in 2016, and 48 in 2015. (I’m obviously trending upward.)

My blog posts are music-based on Fridays and Mondays. They are Christ-centered on Sundays and Mondays. My Thursday blogs essentially kickoff each new weekend, and they can be about anything and everything (such as this one). So this is a music blog. It’s a Christian blog. It’s also a travel blog. One thing it’s not – it’s not a political blog. I will never discuss politics on here (or anywhere online). I generally don’t discuss politics in public.

We all have a short attention span online. I certainly do. There’s a lot to check-out on the interwebs and on the social medias. My blogs are quick and easy reads. You should be able to read any one of my blog posts in less than 3 minutes. Even my Sunday blogs are that way when I put on my preacher hat and evangelize God’s Good News. Sometimes I’ll go long, but it’s the exception rather than the rule.

You know I love to write. I write for this blog 4 times per week. I write sermons when I’m not writing this blog. I probably enjoy writing blog posts more now than I ever have over the course of the past 14 years. So I’ll keep on doing it as long as I keep on enjoying it. I’ll keep it at 4 days per week. Back in the early years I was blogging every day – often multiple times per day. I got burnt out on it after a few years, and I ended-up abandoning WordPress for about 7 years. I tried blogging for about 3 years over at Facebook, but my friends over there didn’t understand it, didn’t appreciate it, and pretty much ignored it.

I hope you like what you read on here. If so then keep on coming back, and keep on liking and following. I’ll keep on writing for you – and for me – and for my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

Cade Thompson remains at # 1 for the 6TH week in a row with his uplifting and up-tempo “Every Step Of The Way”.

I love the opening lyrics of the song:

♫ If I could talk to myself eight years ago
Seeing what I’ve seen – knowing what I know
I would tell that quiet kid
There’ll be days ahead
When it doesn’t make sense

I would tell him he can trust Your hand
‘Cause now I gotta picture of the greater plan
I can see with perfect clarity
It wasn’t tragedy
It was what I needed

I couldn’t see it then
But now I understand ♫

I can relate to that, but for me it was 14½ years ago. I was once a quiet kid. I was a quiet kid in my teens, 20s, and 30s, but then I was rescued and saved at 39. It came out of nowhere. I didn’t plan it. I didn’t schedule it. I didn’t see it coming. I didn’t know what hit me when it hit me. I didn’t understand it at all. It took me several months at the start of my journey to figure it out, and I’m still figuring it out as I move closer to God’s light.

Oh – I’m no longer a quiet kid. I have a testimony to evangelize !

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again this upcoming weekend – with 4 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.

Your likes, follows, and comments are always appreciated. Thank You for being part of my online ministry to share God’s Good News and win souls for Christ through His music. I’m also on Twitter and Flickr.

Be blessed my friends !  May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
