One Year Blogging Anniversary and Viv’s Blog Party!!🎉

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 3× 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!!

The Reason I Blog

In the beginning of April 2018, I made the decision to start a blog, so my friends and family would better understand what I was going through physically and so I could gain their support from that understanding and in turn feel less unsupported.

Well, it didn’t work like I thought it would. For starters, I couldn’t get most of them to read my blog or sign up to receive emails!! The response I felt was a bit lack luster and lame.

Now what? Of course my dear parents signed up to receive emails and my best friend Michelle but I already felt supported, loved, and understood by them anyways…..just not everyone else!

One day my mama told me that my blog greatly encouraged her. She went on to say she actually loved my blog and expectantly looked forward to my posts. She began encouraging me to write, write, write and share my heart.

I started to see the bigger picture here: God wanted me to write to give hope, encouragement, and share Him with others.

It wasn’t about me anymore and making people “get” what I’m going through….it was about ministering to others who suffer and bringing glory to God!

My mission was changed.

I began to write for others and in the process I began to know a deeper healing through giving hope to them.

From the beginning, my initial intentions had been selfish and all about me but God changed my approach and gave my suffering a sense of purpose through blogging for others by sharing my hope.

And in the process, I’ve discovered my purpose, received greater healing, and formed deep forever friendships I would have never had if I didn’t have this TBI, and didn’t put one foot forward into the realm of blogging.

Only God can do this! Praise be unto Him! His plan is always perfect and He always knows what we need in order to break out of our shells and emerge as brilliant pearls with a heart’s passion for Him.

Much love,

Viv 🤗

P.S. For my WordPress friends; I plan on having a blog party here soon. This will give you the opportunity to share your blog, passion and mission for blogging…..stay tuned! 😄💙🌎
