Before Blogging There was a journal

What did we do before there was blogging?

I started this Blog as a place to write some thoughts and to improve my typing skills.  Nothing beats practice.  Before this blog, a kept a journal.  Much like this blog, the Entries are sparse, far apart and sometimes make no since.  However, I have many friends and people I a have met from many different places.  I think many of you may get to know me as a person better, if I share a few of the entries from my Journal.  Beside, when it is time to print this blog out, we can see what it was I was thinking.

The following is copied out of my journal from May 27, 2000

Today I began reading about the servant Charles Spurgeon. I have prayed the Lord to have complete control over my life.  I give Jesus my time, my talents and my love.  I have rebuked Satan and will have a good night of sleep, before I lay down, I have read Psalms 23 and The Lord’s Prayer.  I pray the Lord will continue to use me.

I was 27 years old when I wrote that entry.  Today is Nov 4, 2014 and I am struggling with many aspects of growing older.  I am using this occasion to remember the joy of my salvation and the the history of my life.
