Welcome to Post #300!

Wow, as I looked at my blog post count this morning, I saw that this one is number 300! That's a lot of posts, y'all. I started this blog right after Brian and I got married in the summer of 2008. Who knew it would take me through such highs and lows as the years unfolded.

More than anything, I started this blog for us, to chronicle our life. I liked the fact that a blog is accesible from any location, and it's also nice to keep friends and family members informed.

But, then I found that the Lord used this blog as something much larger than a journal. He placed it on my heart to share deeply about what's going on in my life. He prompted me to share things that many would find too personal.

Though sometimes it's hard to bare all, so to speak, I have watched the Lord do incredible things through this free little online tool. And, more than anything, it's blessed my heart to know that I have a support network.

So, today, I'm praising God for each of you. I know through Google Analytics that there are readers in 44 states and 8 countries. What an incredible blessing to know that the love of God spans every single border that man creates.

Wow - 300 posts - of sharing and being an inspiration to us all - Thank you.

Like I have said in the past I stumbled across your blog from another blog and began reading shortly after you began....I remember looking at your beautiful wedding photos and thinking of your joys....I also remember opening the blog the day you announced you had cancer the first time and feeling helpless that I couldn't help your family in some way.

Knowing how important family and friends are during a cancer diagnosis and how strong your faith is, I knew you would be just fine - you are surrounded by so many great people.

So I will continue to follow your journey and pray for your health and continued happiness. My mom just marked her 11th year cancer free - I will look forward to reading your blog 11 years from now also!

Prayers from Iowa.....God Bless

P.S. - your family Easter photos are wonderful...I can relate because my family is just as close.

I've been blog stalking your blog for a few months now. And I'm totally in love. Your "realness" in relation to your life and faith is what I find so encouraging. Thanks!!

Brian and Lindsey,
I can't believe that I've missed so many posts. I must have been wrapped up in Tiffany Blue.:)
Congrats on your 300th post. God has used the two of you in so many ways. As an inspiration to married people or people getting married, to others who have walked your journey before and for others walking it with you. For the sick and the healthy. You both are an example of the strength at we receive from Jesus and of the Love and Attention that we all should give Him.
Yes, you have arrived! It takes a while but then you realize that this is the life that Christ has chosen for you. I realized it in a Selah concert at our church when they sang the words, "whatever my lot, you have asked me to say, it is well, it is well with my soul." If we truly follow Him, it is well with our soul and we can, without a doubt, glorify Him in all we do.
Blessing to you both! You inspire me!!
Stormin' the Throne on your behalf!! We love you guys, The Chaffin's

After my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and I started blogging, I found your media friend's blog and read about you. I have been here ever since. It was and has been such an encouragement to me as someone who has walked along side a loved one with cancer. Thank you for sharing your heart and faith. It has touched mine deeply.
Love, Carol
