Lawson writes . . . sharing thoughts and memories

Thank You

“We would like to interrupt this broadcast for a special message . . . .”  You have heard such an announcement, and it does receive attention.

I would like to take today to speak a special word to you.  When I began my blog, I had no idea what I was going to do.  I did not know if I would be writing everyday or on occasion.  As it has turned out, I have written each day with the exception of  the three days at Christmas.  I cannot believe I have so much to write about!  If you have read my very first blog, you know that I had no intention of providing a daily devotional or time to sermonize!  Yet, I did want my memories and thoughts to reflect my relationship with my Lord.  You have noted that most of my writings will tie a Scripture to the thought for that blog.

It is still my purpose for these blogs to be light and a recollection of events in my blessed life.  I have so many people of various persuasions that I hopefully can have everyone continually reading.  Yet, with no apology, I will give witness to the relationship with God I have through Christ, and how my life is so different because of Him.

But here is the purpose for today’s blog.  I want to say thank you to the scores of people who are reading these blogs regularly.  You are so encouraging.  I cannot respond to each comment or other communications I receive by email, but I do want you to know you are blessing me and encouraging me.  And thank you for sharing with others about my blog.

The number of readers continues to go up every week.  Statistics provided to me are staggering.  I am not seeking a larger readership, but I believe it is something God is doing.  It has grown to where every blog is now showing up in Google.  One only has to write my name Lawson Jolly and every blog is being revealed.  It is amazing how many people do research and because of a word in my blog, they are taken to that site.  I get interesting comments from those readers.  Also, as you share with others, the address now is simply www.lawsonjolly.com.

I do see an instant rise in readers on those days that Jennifer makes a remark on Twitter or Facebook.  I appreciate her support and encouragement.  For those not familiar with Jennifer, check Jennifer Rothschild on Facebook or Twitter.  Also, visit her website www.jenniferrothschild.com.

Another special thank you goes to my wife, Judy.  She is my very capable editor and proofreader. She interrupts her writings and research to assist me.  What support and encouragement she gives!  And she, too, often links some of the blogs to her Facebook page. 

For those who have read Thankful from my word series, you know how strongly I feel about living life daily with thankfulness.  Without this expression to you, I would negate much of what I have written.  So, again, thank you, and may this day be a joyous and thankful day for you!

” . . . strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”  (Colossians 2:7)  ” . . . and be thankful.”  (Colossians 3:15)
