"Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the man who trusts in Him!"
(Psalm 34:8)

Today I celebrated the sixth anniversary of this blog by taking a trip down memory lane.  I was trying to recapture the feelings that had motivated me to start it in the first place.  In the process, an ebbing flame was fanned back to life.

So here it is, the post that started it all--WHY THIS BLOG.

Good news is for sharing, not for keeping to one's self, and my heart is full of things I would like to share about God's goodness, how He has worked in my life, and most of all, His great love for you and me.

At first I wanted to call this blog Streams of Living Water, and even had a great graphic picked out. I wanted to jump right in and share some things I've been learning that have brought the Scriptures alive in a way I'd never experienced before, but it seems the Lord had different plans, and if I've learned anything on this journey through life, it's been that even when His way is not my way, it always turns out to be the best way.

The streams of living water may be where the action takes place, but before we can jump in, we need to be transformed, and that all starts at the foot of the cross when you lay your burdens down.

At the foot of the cross there is mercy and grace. There is forgiveness, healing, and deliverance. This is the place where the slate gets wiped clean and you can have a fresh start. All you have to do is believe it, and receive it.

Thank you so much for stopping by. May you be richly blessed, encouraged, and filled with hope as you stay and visit for a while.

And now for the giveaway:  You have a choice of either of the two books on my sidebar--Sincerely Wrong: An Improbable Journey, or It Is Written.

Sincerely Wrong is a memoire of the search for roots, purpose, and significance that led me to embrace New Age and occult doctrines, and of the improbable journey that led me from the occult to Christianity at a time when I was convinced I had all the answers and was no longer seeking.

It Is Written, is an invaluable resource that can help point you to passages you don't know where to find when you need them the most.  Crucial Scriptures are topically organized according to everyday issues, so as to provide immediate guidance and support in the midst of whatever situation you may be facing.

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment and an e-mail so I can contact you if you are the winner.  The drawing will end at Noon (EST) on Wednesday, February 18th, and the winner will be selected by Random Integer.
