  1. Thanks for visiting my Pursuing Heart blog ... and thanks for following along! I enjoyed reading your "About Me" page; loved how you described the purpose of your blog. May God give you joy each day as you grow in Him ... and as you share through this blog. And also as you count His many gifts ...

  2. I came to get something good from your list – something I needed – and I found it. This was perfect #33 unexpected encouragement from a friend about my walk with Jesus (because whether it’s about our walk with Jesus – or just our earthly walk – a friend who does a nice thing – just because they want to help – that’s God’s love with human hands. I just got some – and it really couldn’t have been timed better.) Thank you. I needed this today.

  3. Such a great post today! I'm so glad I stopped by! I'm with Craig on this one --- the encouragement from friends is probably the one thing I look back on in my life as the being the most important thing I ever received. When I wanted to give up, when I didn't do as well as I wanted to, when burdens were heavy. . . it was always an encouraging word that kept me going! It's made me want to BE that type of person! Thanks again for your list! It was great to be here!

  4. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your encouraging words. I, too, am blessed with a wonderful mother-in-law and it is such a thing to be thankful about -- I'm adding that to my gratitude list, also!

    Have a beautiful, blessed day.

  5. Hi! This is my first time visiting and loved all of your blessings. Look forward to reading more. Have a blessed day.
