*Still Learning* (A side note)

Ok, so I really am new to this whole "Blogging" thing and have so much to learn! (I look at some of my friends blogs and am blown away at how detailed and beautiful they are! I will get there some day :-)

But for now, I know that I mentioned something in my first post about signing up to get e-mails when I update my blog. I realized that the link that many of you signed up for is really only useful if you actually have a blog yourself that you sign into and check. At which point it would inform you of my latest blogs. Not very helpful for most of you!

So with that being said, I consulted my very blogger savvy friend and she helped me out (Thanks Erica!). So here's what you do :-)

If you would like to sign up to automatically get an e-mail every time I make a new post (Meaning you don't have to check my blog every day, it will check it for you...how cool is that?!) Here are the steps to do it (I made them very detailed for those of you who want all the details)

On the right hand side of this blog there is something that says
"Get an e-mail every time I publish a new post!"
Below this is a place to enter your e-mail address, do so and then click on the button below that which says "Get e-mail updates"
This will direct you to another page.
Here you will confirm your e-mail address is entered correctly and enter a little code listed on the page.
It will send an e-mail to the e-mail address you entered.
Go to that e-mail and click on the link that says
"Click here to activate your account"
It will then bring up a new web page confirming your subscription to "The Journey Of Israel"
And your done! :-)

Wow...got all that? :-) Anyway, I think you will find this to be a much more helpful and effective tool in getting updates on our blog and learning more about our Journey.

Thank you to all of you who care so much about our family and our sweet baby boy. We are blessed by you!

Thank you, Miss Rose, for your inspirational website.

I learned of a wonderful website this week of a man born without legs or arms. His home page begins with: "It is a great privilege to welcome you to the Life Without Limbs.org website. My name is Nick Vujicic and I'm 25 years old. I was born without arms or legs and given no medical reason for this condition. Faced with countless challenges and obstacles, God has given me the strength to surmount what others might call impossible. Along with that, the Lord has placed within me an unquenchable passion to share this same hope and genuine love that I’ve personally experienced with more than two million people all over the globe."

I encourage our followers to view this website at: http://www.lifewithoutlimbs.org
