Hello everyone! Short post today as a share an important blog update ☺

You can probably tell already from the title, but…

I’m now at 200 followers! I’m amazed! I’m grateful for all of your follows, likes and time to read my posts. Thank-you so much!

I feel I need to thank two very important people who have been very instrumental in the creation of this blog.

First, is my friend Amanda. Amanda, you may think I’ve forgotten about the time I asked you for advice about becoming a better writer. You told me it would be a good idea to start a blog and that has been some of the best advice I’ve ever received. Thank-you❤

Additionally, this post would be massively incomplete without recognizing the Source of much of my inspiration and occasional prodding haha. Thanks be to God, for seeing then and Who still sees now the future of the blog when I cannot.

He put the vision for this blog in my mind. And where I have the will to write, He directs my steps.

To illustrate what I mean, here is a quick story about how the name of the blog came about.

 

Secret Flowers Helped Me Name My Blog

It was last May that I changed the name of the blog to The Buttercup Lamb. I had thought long and hard about the name, but still wasn’t sure.

See that post here: Addressing the Name Change

Then I was outside and I spied something growing near the pine tree where elderberries grow now.

They were buttercups. Half-hidden in the weeds, I couldn’t see them until I was in the middle of my backyard.

Was this an act of chance, of happenstance? Not to me.

These buttercups popped up at exactly the time when I was doubting. I felt it was an amazing and beautiful thing that these flowers were there, at this exact time.

I think that God can speak to us in small, quiet and unexpected ways. Is it beyond Him, to make a statement with flowers?

I would say no. I don’t think that anything is beyond His doing.

Sometimes I lack the faith to fully understand. And yet I know, even if I don’t yet fully understand…nothing is out of His reach. No cares that we have are too small or unimportant to Him.

🌼💕🌼

Happy Monday, may you have a blessed & happy summer and another big thank-you to all of my followers!

    1. ❤ Yes He did! He works in amazing ways. It was just an added bit of encouragement, making this milestone. Some days blogging can be discouraging but we keep going! Keep moving forward…is that what they say in “Meet the Robinsons”?
