I told my husband that I was going to write a blog about him today, but right now I have some other things in mind, so I will wait until another day to write about him. One thing I have been wanting to do is to promote some of the other blogs that I enjoy reading each day. This whole blogging thing has been a completely unexpected blessing in my life. I thought I was starting a blog for one reason, but then I started reading and communicating with other Christian bloggers who have written some of the most amazing, encouraging and thought-provoking posts that have been a huge blessing to me.
As I was eating some strawberries for my snack today, I decided to look up the nutritional value of them on the internet as I ate. I knew they were very nutritious, but I was amazed at just how good for us they are. Strawberries are full of antioxidants and anti-cancer substances, low in calories, and loaded with vitamin C. The article even stated that 18 strawberries is similar in calories to ONE chocolate covered peanut! That statement won me over! I will be buying a lot more strawberries from now on. Well, as I was eating those delicious and juicy strawberries, I couldn't help but think about my blogger friend, Strawberry, of Middle Age Ramblings. I didn't know her before I started blogging, and I have never met her in person, but I can tell from her writings that she is a Godly woman who loves the Lord Jesus and wants to honor and glorify Him in her life and through her blog. I can easily compare the spiritual nutrition of her blog to the nutritional value found in strawberries. Her name of "Strawberry" fits perfectly because reading Middle Age Ramblings helps spiritual growth and development, just like the vitamin C in strawberries helps with physical growth and development. I look forward to reading much more from her.
I plan to promote more blogs in the coming weeks. I love reading other Christian blogs, but we all need to remember to continue reading the Word and not to neglect it. That is our only complete and God-inspired source of truth for our spiritual nutrition. The more we all read it, the better our blogs will be!
