While I moaned in my head over less engagement on my blog posts, God had a plan behind the scene.
A scenario I didn’t imagine occurred. Light broke forth, untying the bands of discouragement holding me bound. God moved a blogger to nominate me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. In fact, when I read the comment notifying me of it, a smile spread across my face.
At this juncture, I thank Mr Robert (Mr Switzerland) for the nomination. He is the face behind Watching Daily at Wisdom’s Gates.
