Are you wondering what this number means? I'll give you a hint: it isn't how many jelly donuts I've eaten in my lifetime. Way too low a number for that. Nor is it how many times I've promised Paul I'd get organized. That number would be four-hundred and twenty-six. You're close though.

This is Blessed... post number Five-Hundred! Pretty hard to believe isn't it? Or, oddly frightening to admit. Who would have ever thought I would have five-hundred things to say about anything. Don't answer that Paul.

Twenty-six months ago, I had no idea what I had started. I still have no idea. But thankfully, God does.

On post five-hundred, just as I did on my very first post, I would like to rededicate this sweet-little-spot on the world wide web to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He has taken my life from the ashes of my sinful choices and created in me something new and more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I will be forever grateful for his eternal blessing on my life.

For those of you who rarely ever show your face please comment below. I'd love to meet you.

And for those regular gals who have become sweet friends and have helped to make my blog an extremely Blessed... experience, I thank you from the bottom of my jelly-filled heart.

I adore you girls!

500, let's see. That would be the number of times I've wished we lived closer!

Congrats, friend. Not sure I'll make it to 500.

500 is the # of boxes of macaroni we eat in one year...

Hi Joanne,
Congratulations on your 500th post! Wow, that's a lot... and your blog has been such a blessing.

I have been away for a while and there have been things happening which prevented me from visiting my friends' blogs more often these past weeks. Glad to be back on blogworld.

Keep going, dear Joanne. May you continue to be abundantly blessed.
