Earlier this morning, I was reading a blog posted by Christianblog Account (@christianblog) entitled 25,000 Published Blogs which announced that there have now been more than 25,000 blogs published here at Christianblog.com Congratulations, CB!
I stumbled across CB back in July 2007 in the earlier days of this site. At that time, there were of course, fewer members and a lot less blogs. In fact, when I joined, no blogger had yet posted 100 blogs on this site. I've been blessed to watch it grow and develop over time. Yes, it has had it's "growing pains" and will continue to have them for as I wrote back in 2008 when I'd lost my hair to chemo; growth hurts! However, despite those growing pains, this site as been a blessing to me and a number of others as well.
There are a lot of people who simply pass through CB and others who may be here for a season and then move on. Then there are others who perhaps thought they'd just pop in for a bit... and discovered a "home". I am one of those people.
There are a number of people for whom this site is more than just a blogging site. It is a blogging community. Over the years, CB has blessed a number of people in many different ways. In my case, God brought me to this site a few months before I was diagnosed with breast cancer for He knew that I needed this place. I still do. I am eternally thankful for CB and the wonderful friends I have met here. It has been a blessing to me!
I would like to thank John Abela for his vision, dedication and hard work which made and continue to make Christianblog.com a reality. Few people are aware of the sacrifices you make to keep this site up and running. I strongly suspect that those of us who do know, only see the tip of the iceberg. I can only say, John, that God sees it all and it is my daily prayer that God will bless you as you have blessed so many others.
Congratulations John and CB!
