# 200

That's how many posts I've done since starting The Jonah Syndrome in October of 2006. My first post was done in a hotel in Minneapolis MN at the Desiring God National Conference. This post is being done from my couch in Simpsonville SC. ...This has been a hard, trying, and faith building time in my life. It's amazing what can happen in 200 posts:

- I've read a lot of great books over the last 10 months

- I said goodbye to my mom on January 8th after her overdose on prescription medication

- The St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series

- I said goodbye to Upward Unlimited after eight years of service (3 as a customer, 5 as a staff member)

- I threw my hat in the church planting ring with Acts29 and am looking at starting Eternity in 2009

And so very much more. The great thing about The Jonah Syndrome is that it's been a reflection of my life. I've voiced many opinions and thoughts. Some that I would still stand by and some that I would change just a little. I'm trying to learn to be a better, more Godly, and more consistent blogger.

I can't wait to see what happens over the next 200. This past week was amazing and God is doing some AMAZING stuff that prayerfully moves the church plant closer and closer to reality.

Thank you to EVERYONE who has commented on The Syndrome. Your comments mean the world to me as they show someone is still reading! My journey continues...pray for us this week as we prepare to move to Missouri. And do me one favor...when you read this, would you comment and let me know that you did and who you are...
