This is a big moment! This is my 200th blog post! On television shows, the 200th episode is usually a big deal. I feel that way about this blog post. It’s not a big deal in that I have something awesome to say, but it’s a big deal because 200 isn’t something that happens overnight. 200 posts takes time and commitment. Both I’m happy to have put into this blog.
I wanted to take a moment to thank those of you who read my blog. I would honestly write even if no one read it, but it certainly does help to know that I have an audience. The size of the audience doesn’t concern me. I’m just glad to have my voice to be heard. So thank you for listening. Thank you for reading and commenting. I hope that you have been blessed by me sharing my life with you. I’ve certainly been blessed by this whole process.
Blogging is a way that I can be real with the world. Now I realize that I shouldn’t post everything that goes in my life or pops into my head, but for the most part, I try not to censor my reality. At times this means really hard or discouraging blogs posts. It also means happy posts when I’m celebrating. I often worry that you all think I’m bi-polar… Bouncing between sad and happy. However, this is real life. It has it’s ups and downs. Some days I handle the down moments better, some days the down moments break me. Some days, I have a joyful song in my heart or some days I feel like sharing my most recent book or baking project.
I don’t think this blog will ever be just about one thing. It’s Amy Scott’s Thoughts and I don’t think about just one thing. I think about many things. My life is multidimensional and layered. It’s not about one specific thing. Hopefully, you don’t mind me bouncing around from topic to topic. These are the things I think about. The things I love. The things I struggle with. The things that make me laugh and the things that make me cry. This is who I am.
I openly share because I wonder if anyone else out there feels the same way. I wonder if anyone can relate. My hope is that I can share the light that I have in my life. That doesn’t mean that all the posts will be happy, but I hope they will all give glory to God. I want to share my struggles because they are part of me. I want to share my joy because it defines me. Overall, I am just a girl who is just trying to make Jesus happy. I’m living my life with him ultimately in mind. The great thing about Jesus is he desires for me to have an authentic relationship with him. He desires for me to share my whole heart. He knows the ups and downs and cares about each moment of my day.
So I’m happy I can share this 200th blog with you! I hope that I can write many more. I have found comfort in the written word. I have found that as I write, I find myself on the page. This blog is a piece of who I am. Thank you for listening. Thank you for receiving it. And more over, thank you for praying. I don’t have it all figured out. I appreciate the prayer and support as I try to make the best of what I’ve been given.
