Well, this is my 100th post to Making All Things New. The idea came from reading a book, Crush It! by Gary Vaynerchuk. I was in the Dallas airport with time to kill, and I saw the book on display in a bookstore window. The gist of the book is to how to use social networking to tell people about something you’re passionate about.
Although my objective is more about getting the word out about personal transformation than it is about making money, this book really helped me see the benefit of using tools such as blogs to reach a larger audience. It certainly has worked for me. Helping people see the need for transformation, body, mind, and spirit is what this blog is all about. Each of our transformations is going to be a bit different, because each one of us is unique. That’s the way God made us.
We’re all in need of transformation, though, and I hope my efforts have helped you figure out what you need to do to make that happen in your own life. Don’t worry about past failures and false starts. Each sunrise reminds us of the great gift of life. We can start again. It’s a new day!
I’m really looking forward to all the future posts I have floating around in my head. This has been a lot of fun, and it’s only going to get better. I’m very grateful to have you with me on the journey 🙂
On a totally different note, I went to a wedding over the weekend. The groom is someone I’ve had the blessing of watching grow up into a fine young man. He now has a beautiful bride to share his life with, and I’m so happy for them.
In their invitation, they listed all the places they were registered, so that you would know exactly what they wanted. I don’t have a lot of money, and I’m always wondering how I can give newlyweds something of meaning, rather than an inexpensive item that won’t last.
I remembered a charity I had read about recently, charity:water. I went to their website, and I really liked what I saw. A donation of $20 will provide one person with clean drinking water for 20 years. A gift that will keep on giving. They’ll even send an e-card, and the recipients can jump on-line and choose which country their gift will go.
I felt so happy to give them this wedding gift. When you have a similar opportunity, I’d ask you to consider doing the same. Such gifts will help bring about transformations in the lives of people we will never meet, and will help them to move from surviving to thriving. How cool is that?
