When I started doing this blog it was kind-of a joke. I had smarted off to Dennis and he sent me this blog address. I decided to play with it a little, never knowing what the result would be. I didn’t know what to write about so I decided to let you do the writing.
Rex had written a blog and mentioned me at the end. Thanking me for our friendship. Suddenly people started commenting on his blog … people I hadn’t talked to in years and years. It was such an encouragement to me … it was neat to see what people remembered about me from the short time I had passed through their lives. So I decided to try and give that feeling to some other people … the Hot Seat was born.
I want to share a note that I received from someone that was on the Hot Seat at one time. I just want you to realize how much it means to folks when you stop by to say something. Your two minutes of typing can encourage someone in the midst of a storm.
“I wanted to thank you for the blog. The comments meant a lot to me. Sometimes I wonder what my life has been about or if I have done anything good for the kingdom … those words gave me a little sense that once upon a time I did some good.”
Others have mentioned how much it meant to see themselves through others’ eyes. How they really needed the encouragement at just that time.
I just wanted to stop and say thanks for helping me encourage some folks … and I wanted you to hear a little of what you’ve done for the hearts of some very special people.
I know that you’ve helped shed some light on what can sometimes seem to be a long and lonely path … for me and at least a few others. Thanks.
