One Year Blogoversary Give-away

Angels glitters
Angels
It's finally here! My one year Blogoversary. For those who comment on my Blogoversary, I will put your name in a drawing for a fun surprise! :)

As I started blogging a year ago, I wanted to put down my childhood experiences growing up in China. This has been a blessing as I remember so many instances of the Lord's watch-care over me. Then, as I read your blogs, I found so many other things to write about. What a great year this has been!

What has amazed me, is all the wonderful people in Blogland that I have gotten to know. You have inspired and blessed me with your comments! I have loved reading your blogs and sharing in your experiences. You have become friends and I appreciate each one of you.

When I started my blog, I couldn't figure out a good title. Many titles sounded so elegant, and I said to my daughter, "But I'm just Ruthie!" She smiled and wisely said, "Then that should be your title - Just Ruthie!"

I look forward to another year of sharing together with you.

Blessings and hugs ♥
Just Ruthie

Ruthie, happy bloggieversary!! I so appreciate you praying for me and I love your posts. I think it is so wonderful that you were a little girl in China. I love your writing and look forward to your future posts. I will be coming up on my one year mark in a couple of months. This has been the greatest experience. Aren't we fortunate? luv ya, Trish

Charlotte said...

Happy Blogoversary! I think you have the perfect name for your blog. I had a hard time deciding what to call my blog too when I first started. My husband suggested At Home in Scottsdale. I wasn't crazy about it but since I couldn't come up with anything better I went with it. Like you I had no idea there were so many wonderful people out there and that I would get emotionally involved in their lives. It has been a wonderful experience.
Some of my favorite posts this past year have been your China experiences. Thank you for blessing my life.
Hugs,
Charlotte
