Give Me My Mountain 

To God be the glory for everything He has done for me. 

God has promised to carry and take care me from the first day I was born, even when I’m old, and even when my hair turns grey.

“I have carried you since you were born. 

I have taken care of you from your birth. 

Even when you are old, I will take care of you. 

Even when your hair has turned gray, I will take care of you. 

I made you and will take care of you. 

I will carry you, and I will save you.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭46:3-4‬ ‭ICB‬‬

Today, I’m celebrating 365 days of blogging. 

I wish to thank each and everyone who has faithfully stood with me and encouraged me throughout my journey. Thank you to my reading audience who has been with me from the first day and to those who have joined along the way. Thank you for following me on WordPress, email, Instagram, twitter, and web search. 

A SPECIAL heartfelt thank you to my faithful husband/friend, my forever loyal and faithful sister, Joy and my loving brother Earle – all who were my biggest supporters and encouragers. Thank you for encouraging me each and every day. When I felt like my blogs weren’t the greatest, when my grammar wasn’t the best, days when I wondered if anyone would read my blogs – I knew for certain I could have counted on you for support. Thank you!

Today I celebrate my mountain climbing experience with ALL of you my reading audience. It’s been quite a journey for the last year. I’ve been through many dark and lonely valleys, I’ve been forced to walk on water, and I’ve climbed many mountains …BUT the LORD stood with me and gave me strength. 

The Stats shown below have encouraged me …and my reading audience have made it worthwhile….

  1. Congratulations on this milestone, Junie. Great is HIS faithfulness! To GOD be the glory! I rejoice to witness your personal growth as you faithfully bloom where you are planted. As you water the lives of so many readers, you, yourself are watered. I greatly rejoice with you and celebrate your milestone. Keep being faithful, for the ONE who called you and equips you is faithful. Bless the LORD, o my soul, and forget not all HIS benefits. 👭👏👏👍💝

    1. You have been holding my hands forever. It’s the only rule our Mom gave to you — hold June’s hands 😂😂🤣🤣🤷🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️❤️❤️

  2. Congrats on the phenomenal achievement. Usually a one year old child is just wobbling, learning to walk and stand on his or her own. You have really blazed the trail after one year. More importantly, God has used you to bless, inspire, encourage and motivate so many from around the world. You are truly a blessing.
    Keep up the excellent work.

    1. Our marriage vows have stood the test of time. You have been my lifelong friend for better, for worse and in the wee hours of the morning when I used to be up writing. Thank you 😊 ❤️❤️

      1. May God bless you both and keep you together for many more years

        Every blessing
        John and Elizabeth Merritt



  4. Congrats on achieving this milestone of blogging. You did what you are called to do and you did it well. Continue in the call that God has placed on your life. So proud of you
