Last April I came across a great opportunity to interact with about 2,000 other bloggers in an event called the April A-Z Blog Challenge started a couple of years ago by a Los Angeles based blogger by the name of Arlee Byrd. Through this I was blessed to see a lot of great idea to connect with other bloggers not only on WordPress but Blogger. As I went back to visit some of these blogs I came across a very interesting invitation.
Mark Koopman, a blogger based in Hawaii, has devised a great opportunity for each of us to participate in as an online community of those who believe in the power of prayer. On December 24th he invites us to join him in a virtual prayer circle he hopes to extend across all fifty states and whatever countries participants hail from. I will add the pertinent info from Mark’s blog below this.
About two months ago, I had a random thought.
Normally, these get me into trouble, but this one sounded like a great idea:
Why not set aside a moment to reflect on the year that was and share some hopes for the next year?
But wait… as they say on TV… This is absolutely open to anyone, anywhere. Imagine if we got one person from 50 independent states (countries), too. That would be amazing!
If you can’t post on the day… it’s Christmas Eve, Mark… (I know, I know 🙂 feel free to schedule your post to go live on the 24th.
I’m *NOT* expecting people to comment – my only hope is that people can stop by to read, relax and reflect for as much time as they can spare 🙂
A. When clicking the Linky List “You are next… Click here to enter” button, you’ll first be asked for the link title (your name) or blog title. Please add a hyphen and the two-letter state abbreviation AFTER your name/blog, so I can track which state you’ll be “representing.”
(e.g. Mark Koopmans – HI)
Is there not a better time to help make the world a better place than Christmastime?
Deep down in my heart, I truly believe someone, somewhere will absolutely benefit fromyour words.
Merry Christmas, thanks for helping spread the word, and I hope to read you soon 🙂
And that’s it.
