Word Press just sent me my annual report on this blog, so I thought I would share some of it with you. I started this blog in November 2013 with the prayer that I could encourage Christian nurses through sharing my nursing career which began in 1977. God has been kind and gracious to me over the years in carrying me through many tough places in my career and giving me opportunities to share the gospel with a number of my patients and colleagues over the years. My theme verse is Hebrews 12:2, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” As I keep my eyes on the Lord Jesus Christ while resting in Him, I have found that His grace is sufficient day by day. I pray you will also discover how wonderful the Lord Jesus Christ is, receive Him as your Savior, and grow in His grace.
Since the blog began, there have been 5334 visitors from 101 countries. This still amazes me. I look forward to meeting you in heaven at the throne. I wonder how those of us who are nurses will serve Him in eternity since there will be no sickness in heaven? Whatever it is, we know it will be marvelous. One year closer to heaven. The best is yet to come.
In August, the Lord took my dear sister, Marsha Swinehart, RN home to heaven to be with Him. (See Tribute to Marsha Swinehart) She made more comments on my blog than anyone else, and I miss her so much. But I do not wish her back. She is much better off than you or me right now worshiping and serving the Lord with no hindrances.
Here are where the greatest number of my readers live:
2014: USA, Brazil, Canada, United Kingdom, Italy, Philippines, Australia, Germany, Mexico, Colombia.
2015: USA, Brazil, Canada, Philippines, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, India, Mexico, Australia.
May God bless and strengthen you this oncoming year. Please let me know how I can pray for you at email@example.com
