This blog site is celebrating today as we post our 100th blog. As I pondered ways to observe this milestone (well to me it’s a milestone) I found myself thinking of the somewhat “cheesy” ideas my daughter’s old school used to do to celebrate the 100th day of school. We were always asked to send 100 coins, some food that could split into 100 pieces (can you say Cheerios?), and once 100 small items such as party favors, pencils or erasers. None of those would be feasible for fvbf (faith view by faye) so I hope I’ve managed to escape the cheese today.
The 100th word of the Old Testament is “So” found in Genesis 1:7:
“So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse.”
The 100th word of the New Testament is “David” found in Matthew 1:6:
“…and Jesse the father of King David. David was the father of Solomon, whose mother had been Uriah’s wife.”
The 100th verse of the Old Testament is Genesis 4:20:
“Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who live in tents and raise livestock.”
The 100th verse of the New Testament is Matthew 5:10:
“Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
To Our Father in Heaven I offer as David did thousands of years ago, the 100th Psalm.
“Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations”
The purpose God and I set forth for this blog was the opportunity for one female to share her Christian layperson views on living the Christian faith. I haven’t promised (nor delivered) deep theological thoughts or discussions, outstanding writing or sparks for lighting any spiritual fires. I have and hope to continue sharing my walk in Jesus with any and all who stop by.
Thank you for keeping me around this long! I’ve loved the comments I’ve gotten and I am appreciative of them and of you! My numbers aren’t as bad as I thought they were!
Mostly I’m amazed that God has blessed me with such an avenue to put forth something for His kingdom.
