Celebrate! - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more

Two years ago I began my existance in this secret society and that sometime seemingly only exists in my mere imagination. A simple member of the community in Blogville/BlogWorld.

I started out needing a place of hope, a place to write and share, a place all my own. It was here that I hoped to find my strength to continue delighting in the Lord with a Hopeful Heart. The day I began was intentional. It was not a random day to just start up a blog. While already in the midst of an infertility diagnosis, I chose to work on nurturing my hopeful heart here on a day that my family already held as a day of hope in our home. Every December 17th is remembered and commemorated as we honor our Christmas Child who was due to be born this day. We remember our child, Natalie Noel, who was miscarried at just nine weeks.

Look how far we've come. Although some things remain the same, others do not. I have been able to open my heart and share it with more of you than I would have imagined. In doing so, more often than not, I have received great healing and strength.

And the wonderful friends I have met! And how much I have been encouraged and supported in my journey of faith, motherhood, womanhood and home education! So much more than I had imagined!

Thank you for visiting me here and honoring me with your presence. Thank you for finding what I write interesting enough for you to comment. Thank you for your generous prayers. Without readers, I wouldn't have as much of a purpose in my typing. I'll keep praying for you, and you keep praying for me. And one day, just maybe we'll get to meet in the real world outside of a computer screen.


  1. I can only imagine what comfort it gives you to know your child is a saint in Heaven. That's the goal we have for all of our children, and you have already succeeded with one :)

    And if you and your family ever want to take a vacation to Cape Cod, we will definitely meet in person!

  2. Happy Blogiversary!!!

    I am so very thankful for your friendship, and your ability to share and open your heart. It is your hopeful heart that has carried me through my own thank you!!!

    Sending extra prayers for your family today. My heart smiles when I think of your sweet little Natalie watching over the 4 of you right now...and of the day that you will hold her in your arms.

  3. I am so thankful to have met you in this community we share. Hoping we meet in person one day!

  4. We have a lot in common I started my blog about 2 years ago as a way to cope and share with family about our son Pauly. It too has tured into so much more for me. I have found such strenghth from wonderful people like you who come and visit me and my family and think we're "cool." instead of crazy. Happy blogiversary. Prayers for you on your journey.

  5. Happy Blogiversary, Sarah! May the Lord continue to bless you with a hopeful heart, especially during this time of year.

  6. Blogging is a wonderful circle of support. So many mothers see their role differently or just don't homeschooling or being open to life. It's rare to find women who value both. Thank you for sharing with all of us!

  7. Happy Blogiversarry, dear Sarah! You are a blessing to me in so many ways!

    Peace to you this holy season of waiting.


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
