Why I Love Being A Hubber On Hubpages
How do I love Hubpages, let me count the ways.
As I reflected on the great and many opportunities that God has bestowed upon me this year, I could not over-look my blessing called Hubpages, nor it's founder's and it's creator's. Truly, first and foremost, I thank God for being my all and all, my everything. I thank God for His provision and for His protection. Not just for me alone, but God has watched over all of my children, and my grand babies.
God has continued to strengthen my marriage, and has increased my love and friendship with my wife. God continues to bless and keep her, as He walks her into being the picture of perfection, a vessel used in His service. God has kept my brother and my sisters, and their families, in a special way. And God continues to pour out His spirit in our church, bringing me one new son in the ministry this year, two new deacons, and many other sons and daughters.
This year I was blessed to have written and released my first book, entitled, " It Took A Cross To Raise Me." A book that pulls back the covers of my own life, and shows the places where the nails went in. A book that walks each reader through my hurts and pains, and my joys and jubilations. But more than anything else, a book that shows us how God orchestrates our lives, form beginning to end, from the cradle to the grave, being the Great Puppet Master in the Heaven. " Before I formed you in your mother's womb, I knew you."
I must admit, that I am far from even being considered amongst the best authors or writers, for there are many here, without a doubt, that I do consider great, but I'm just one who does love to write. And Hubpages gives me that opportunity. Hubpages has given me an avenue to express my thoughts and sentiments, along with the Divine Word of God, and share it with people of like minds and like interests. Hubpages is also versatile, which gives each writer a wide variety of topics to choose from for the assembling of their Hubs.
I thank God for being led to Hubpages, and the way everything is operated. Hubpages has order, and in the short time that I've been here, I am made aware, that their prescribed order is respected and observed by the multitudes of Hubbers whose writings grace their pages.
What's also fascinating to me, is the warmth of my fellow Hubber's. Hubber's who reached out to me, and invited me into their communities. Hubber's who are listed on our pages as fans or follower's. But these people, though we've never met personally, have become friends. These people have become my Brothers and Sisters. I think of RevLady, who has from my very first hub, never neglected to come by, and leave an encouraging comment.
I think of my Sis. DeBorrah, Sis. DrpastorCarlotta, and Sis. Judah's Daughter who continues to inspire me with their words of strength, knowing that some of our struggles have been so much the same. And also knowing that the God we serve, truly is one God.
I'm blessed to have come across Putz Ballard, who is just a regular down to earth guy. A guy who does not seem to be at all egotistical, arrogant, or puffed-up, and a man who loves God, life, and his family.
My Bros. Ken R. Abell and Presigo, are always there for me with a strong word, and they are also great writers whose hubs I follow, and am inspired by.
I can't call the name of every friend that I've made since coming to Hubpages, and if in doing so, I'm afraid that I may, as careful as I'd try to be, over-look someone, or leave someone out. I had to say that, because I want all of my friends to know that they're loved and appreciated, even if I didn't include your name here. As they say in our circles, " Charge it to my Head, and not my Heart." I even thank all the Hubber's who have come by my pages and left comments, who will be included in my ever growing circle of friends.
Many thanks and well wishes to Hubpages for giving us these pages that we use as instruments of our expressions.
