100th Post!! Who would have thought?

Wow - this is my 100th Post!!  I can't believe it.  I don't write nearly as often as I think of things, nor as often as I'd like to, but here it is, my 100th post.  Most times, it seems that when a blogger reaches 100 posts, they do a give-away or something.  I wonder if I should do that.  Unless you like a knit hat or a baby blanket or something, you'd probably just as soon that I not give away stuff.  I think I'll just do a list of 100 random thoughts.  With numbers, and it may take me a few days, but here we go.
  1. There are amazing people in the world who we can "meet" without ever seeing each other.  Interwebs - amazing!
  2. It's sometimes easier to reveal yourself to complete strangers than your own family.  My reader(s) are an especially kind and caring bunch.
  3. When you look for bad stuff in your life you find it.  And it drags you down.
  4. When you look for God's miracles in your life - you see them!  And it gives you hope for another hour or day or minute.
  5. When you don't share your thoughts with a caring someone, you continue to believe the lies that bang about inside your head.
  6. We treat each other much better than we treat ourselves.  We offer grace, compassion, understanding, forgiveness to neighbors, friends, loved ones.  We often beat ourselves up over our mistakes, shortcomings, choices.  Love yourself as you love your neighbor - that goes both ways!
  7. While we are so busy getting through the day, years are blowing by, and with them, children grow up, parents grow older, and we don't recognize it until something stops us in our tracks.  We need to be present in the moment.
  8. God is not done with me yet.  I'm not as bad as my last mistake nor am I as good as my last accomplishment.  There's always room for improvement.
  9. Trying to fill your heart with stuff, people, things, food, anything other than the God of my understanding will always end in disappointment, and that empty feeling that doesn't go away.
  10. When you stop for just a moment, there is beauty - just look!
Bleeding Heart 2014 - my very own garden

More to come.....and thank you for reading just this post - or all 100!


  1. I wish I knew where to look to see how many blog posts I have written. I love my blogs--I love everyone's blogs and feel friends with all of them!!! You have been such an angel to me--and we have never met. It is amazing. Everyday, it becomes more apparent to me--God works in mysterious ways. :-)

  2. Happy Anniversary! Very important thought points :)

    Your bleeding hearts are beautiful!
