A Humbling Experience

When we first started this blog almost two months ago we had no idea how God was going to choose to use it, much less whether anyone would actually read it besides ourselves.

This morning I received quite a shock when a friend of mine called this morning to say that our blog was mentioned by Hugh Hewitt in his column this morning for The Weekly Standard. Full disclosure: after Mommypundit posted this last night, I encouraged her to e-mail the post to Hugh Hewitt since he had previously linked to our blog for his web symposiums here (scroll down to the Monday 9:25PM group - the previous symposium is not archived but you can read the post here) But I never imagined that our little blog would be singled out in an article appearing on a major media outlet’s website. It’s a great honor and very humbling at the same time. While the temptation of the flesh would be to boast about this, the Bible reminds me of this:

“Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom, or the strong man boast of his strength, or the rich man boast of his riches. But let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth for in these I delight, declares the LORD.” Jeremiah 9:23-24

To Hugh Hewitt, thank you for the inspiration to start this blog. We are honored and humbled that you chose to highlight us from among the literally thousands of blogs that you could have selected.

To those who are paying us a visit for the first time, thank you for checking in with us. We hope that you will visit with us frequently.
