Happy Blogiversary

This blog has now completed six years with my first post being on this day in 2008. In 2008, the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots 17-14 in Super Bowl XLII, Bill Gates stepped down as Chairman of Microsoft Corporation, and Barack Obama became the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. While the start of this blog does not compare in significance to these events, it has been a blessing to me and I hope of some benefit to the body of Christ.
