A New View {Come on Over}

It is time for me to say Revka had her baby and to help with the expenses, she put all her pre-made WordPress designs on sale for $50 (through the end of May, so go get yours) and when I got the email in my inbox I knew. It was time for Arabah to add some color and branch out a bit, like the new buds on my willow tree.

So with Revka’s help (she is more awesome than I can describe) and with a bit of fear and trembling, this post, number 97, will be the last post at arabah.wordpress.com and everything new begins at arabahjoy.com {where there will be a surprise giveaway for post #100, so please come?}

I humbly thank you for walking with me in this dusty place and ask you to join me at our new home. It’s a bit open and empty over there and your presence will sure warm the place up.

If you have subscribed to Arabah via RSS, you will automatically get updates; however, if you are an email subscriber, may i ask you to re-subscribe by clicking here? http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=Arabah&loc=en_US

Thank you, friends. See you at the new view…


75, the Number of Blessing

Your comment and your’s; Your’s and Rebecca’s and Bree-Anne’s and Kathy’s and Linda’s… all 75 of you, actually.

One word: BLESSING.

One month ago, this place changed. It went from being an unknown online journal, quiet and secret, to being “found” (and liked!) by Sarah Maeand loved on by you.

I am unworthy of the love and kindness you have shown this place. I am amazed and humbled that anyone would come here to see what is written.

And I am a terrible return commenter (forgive me?), for one simple reason: I do not want to go about building a blog and I must say that the temptation to do so could ensnare me so easily that it is best for me not to comment or guest post, etc unless I know for sure it is by God’s prompting or permission.

I do not impose this on others, this is for me and because of my own weaknesses. Arabah is a sacred place to me, a place I hash out life with God, and I dare not ruin it by failing to take precautions, to protect it from my own lusts. If that makes sense to anyone.

So the point of this post is to simply say thank you. Thank you for being here. Thank you for putting up with me and for believing in me and for undeserved kindness.

Your presence in this place has beautified it and even though I am not sure how to handle guests here, I’m glad for the opportunity to find out.

Thank. You.


Okay, I’m not sure what to say.

My dashboard says I’ve had over 1,000 visits today. Out of nowhere. Totally unexpected. And just a little frightening.

This is just a simple online journal, my friends. Don’t expect much. Plus, I’m still trying to figure out this dashboard thingy.

But welcome anyway.
