One Year Blogging Anniversary and Viv’s Blog Party!!πŸŽ‰

Yes!! One year!! I can hardly believe it!! It’s been a challenge but has also been greatly rewarding as well! I’ve been richly blessed with new friendships and blogging has given me a sense of purpose in my suffering, as I minister to others who suffer.

Okay, so let’s have some fun, fun, fun!!

This is our party and as your hostess, please follow me and feel free to mingle.

At every party there must be lots of talking, laughing, and just having fun, so please;

**Share your blog. Your purpose for blogging. Your heart. I want to hear about YOU.

**Read other’s comments and show the love by liking their comments and following them. It’s loads of fun and so rewarding!

I met one of my closest friends Kim from a blogging party last year hosted by Savannah. Kim and I do regular Bible studies together 3Γ— a week and chat via voice clips daily. Her friendship has become so special to me and I praise God for the blog party last May that led me to her!!

So, like, comment, and talk. Find new bloggers with the same purpose and interests and you never know, you just may find your own “Kim” and be blessed beyond what you could ever dream of.

I love you all!!

  1. It has been such a blessing for me as well, Vivian! I’m so thankful for your friendship and the fact that we can help each other limp to Jerusalem. Our Bible studies and conversations about their applications have helped me through a very difficult winter. I’m so glad to have the opportunity to comfort each other as we have been comforted by God (2 Cor. 1:3-5). We rejoice when the other rejoices, and we weep when the other weeps (Romans 12:15).

    The purpose of my blog is to attempt to fulfill Jesus’ command to β€œgo” and β€œmake disciples” (Matthew 28:19-20). Technology has been a blessing to me in two regards: helping my homebound body be able to β€œgo” to the β€œnations” and finding such a wonderful friend in you.

    Thank you for the opportunity to share my blog:

  2. Congrats dear Vivian.You are doing good with this blogging thing. I wish I could say the same but still find it hard to ‘get ‘ into it. Why do I blog? Good question. Reason has changed over the years. I started out wanting to jump into crafting challenges but that was a bore. Now I sometime show my crafting but also repost a lot. Some of my blogs that I follow just have such good things to say I want others to read them too. I have opened an Etsy shop for my greeting cards at latebloomingdesigns on Etsy and my blog of course is
    Keep up the great work you are doing as God uses you to encourage others. Love you.

  3. Awesome, Happy Anniversary!!! Thank you for the opportunity to join your blogging party! My blog is at:
    The goal of my blog is to help people come to Jesus, help people understand the Bible, and to minister to a lost and hurting world. I also published my testimony on Amazon last year called, “One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life.”

  4. Wow! a year already, time sure flies. Congratulations! And wishing you many more. You have been quite an inspiration and a gift to know, Viv.

    My blog is my journey into getting to know our Lord intimately and sharing with others this love. It’s a hodgepodge of different topics, music, poetry, sharing other’s thoughts/post, all relating, centering on Jesus Christ/Yahushua Ha Mashiach, β€œThe Anointed One”. It’s with His blessings and the great people I’ve encounter that makes it worth wild. My blog is called thelostcoinblog (one long word); . My goal is to encourage, and uplift πŸ™‚ hopefully educate how awesome our Heavenly Father truly is, as I too learn from Him. We all learn from one another.

    Thank you for initiating this ‘blog party’, great idea!
    You’re in my prayers dear Vivian, much love and many blessings to you and family.

  5. Happy Anniversary Sis Viv! Thank you for this invite to your beautiful blogging party. It has been an honor knowing your heart through your writings. Your transparency is always refreshing. May the Lord continue to encourage and strengthen you with each step you take.

    My page is called Imago Dei at where I hope to share the lessons I learn through the Holy Spirit in hopes of pointing others to Christ. Daily we are called to reflect His image and so my prayer is that the writings always showcase this.

    Congrats again, and thank You for inviting us to share your stage.

  6. Congrats Vivian!! What a great idea to have a blogging party, I always love reading each persons reason for blogging when bloggers host these!!

    I blog at and pretty much the name of my blog says it all..I blog For His Purposeβ€”to point others to Christ for His glory. I oftentimes try to write out of life application paired up with Biblical truth and reasoning, through lessons learned or current happenings in my day to day life. My testimony is told throughout my post and some of it is dark and raw, but it’s real and honest and always points to Jesus.

  7. Hello everyone!I’m Renee. It’s a pleasure to meet you all! Sorry I’m late to the party!
    I have a dear friend who believes in me and talked me into blogging with her. I’m so thankful for her friendship! I have to admit, the thought frightened me at first, because I didn’t know where to begin or what to expect. But I am so glad that I did!
    I love writing! I’m not a professional, by no means, but it has provided an outlet for me. I have met wonderful new friends here!
    The blog is about encouragement and everything in between! My blog site is

      2. That means so much. I’m a crazy cat lady and proud of it! It’s hard because being mostly homebound my pets are so important. They are the ones who don’t judge and love me for the mess I am. Bless you and thanks.

  9. Hey, Vivian! I know I’m kind of late to the party, but congratulations! I haven’t followed your blog for very long, but already I’ve been encouraged and inspired by you. ❀ I so appreciate the kind and thoughtful replies you give to comments! You really have a gift for using words to bless others. I want to be able to make others feel as loved as you've made me feel when you've responded to my comments! ❀ I'm so excited for how the Lord will continue to use your posts, your comments, and your life to build up and bless others!

    Aaaaaaand as per the party rules, haha…
    My blog is! My desire for my blog is to be a refreshment to others in their walk with the Lord through my sharing things that are flowing out of my own relationship with Him. So far, I have poems, flash fiction, quotes, and posts about things He has taught me.

    Thanks for hosting this party, Viv! Blessings in Jesus! ❀

    1. I’m so glad you joined Olivia!! I have been greatly encouraged by you as well!! Thank you for sharing your heart here and for your sincerity with comments that I’ve made. I do try to be as honest and loving as possible. I view my blog as a ministry since I don’t drive and am mostly homebound due to my health. So, I put my heart and soul into this blog. From the beginning, I have felt a close connection with you and love the engaging comments you have left here. I hope and pray God continues to bless you and your refreshing blog in powerful ways. God bless you dear Olivia as we grow and journey together. Much love!! πŸ€—πŸ’–

  10. First of all, congratulations! It’s my first time here. Also I’ve started blogging pretty recently (about a month). I write about motivation, entrepreneurship, mindset and other stuff that come to my mind.

        enjoy this actual conversation
        following on from…/what-we-learn-in-…/
        Actual conversation following I believe in angels
        β€œThe nurse”: C, why do you always have so many angels always helping you… throughout your life. I never have that!”
        Me: β€œIt’s because of my charm (“irresistable”), of course, m (and you’re just so efficient and competent (boringly)!”
        The nurse”” NO. It’s because you’re so useless and look helpless; so they, your “oddball” friends and other people feel sorry for you and they know that anybody (even a six year old) will do a better job than you.”
        We have to have a sense of humour to get through life at times – it really does help.
        β€œLife is far too important (a subject) to be taken too seriously!”

      2. Oh those sure sound good!! My mouth watered….lol!!πŸπŸ‰

        Maybe it is your charm!! Lol!! Yes, keeping a sense of humor is huge! I think I have lost some of mine though Craig. My kids say I’m touchy and cranky. I get all bent out of shape if anyone says anything just a hint negative about my brain. Then I get huffy. I need your easy going carefree views on this because I think I take my TBI way too seriously these days.

  11. Congratulations! Here’s one more follow for the ever-growing followers’ count,

    My name is Rahul Gaur.

    In these random impressions, and with no desire to be other than random, I indifferently narrate my factless autobiography, my lifeless history. These are my confessions, and if in them I say nothing, it’s because I have nothing to say. – Fernando Pessoa

    This sums up what the blog is about. Like Pessoa was able to put words to my thoughts, I hope I can do the same for you, reader.

    Here’s my latest post:

    Hope you all enjoy and come to my blog and stay with me.

  12. I’m Donne and my blog can be found at my blog started in September 2017 and it has given me a voice (which is why I love it so much) and I have met wonderful friends along the way… Blogging has made the world a smaller place and it’s nice to know there are others like me out there. Feel free to pop by for a read and follow.
    It’s a blessing to meet you all xxx
