(6/25/13 – the links to the individuals mentioned no longer exist)

Hannah was my 30,000 visitor, and an incredible site she has when I went visiting to tell her that she was the one.

But kudos goes to a wonderful friend who always has an encouraging word for me when I post, and I think she needs a mention too, and I enjoy her site, Leanne.

Truth be told, there are so many wonderful people that I have met through Xanga. I count myself incredibly blessed. I have been challenged by your posts, moved to tears by things you have shared, and laughed at your joy, and learned so much that has helped my walk with God. This time on Xanga is so enriching for me, and I thank all of you! I am just glad that God has given me a place to share His Word and incredible teachings of my pastors.

Oh my, another milestone – 15 away from 30,000. If you notice you are the one, let me know!

Later today I will type up another Exodus study, but for the meantime, I thought it might be fun to do something that I love to do periodically:

Feel free to ask up to three questions (tasteful and within reason) that you want to know about me, and I will gladly try to answer them. If you want me to ask you a question or questions, I would love to do so.

Have a blessed night.

About Heather Marsten

Welcome to Heather's Blog. I'm looking forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. I just moved about nine years of material over from another blog site, Xanga, who may close down mid-July. At first I was disappointed to make the move because I had a lifetime membership at Xanga and had to spend weeks transferring posts. But now I'm thrilled. Already I've met new bloggers and read many new websites. Blogging is a wonderful way to expand my horizons and garner new ideas. I'm a happily married mom of three young adults. My husband and I are proud to watch our children grow and venture out into the world. My daughter is still in college but my two sons have graduated. One has a job and the other just graduated and is in the process of finding a job in his field, physics. Anyone know of any jobs out there? I'm proud of our children and love watching them grow and mature. They've become fine, compassionate, and loving people. Empty nest? Nah, I'm too busy to let an empty nest bother me. Not enough hours in the day. My husband and I enjoy quiet time together and I have many interests to pursue - one of which is blogging :D I am a born-again believer and love God. As you read this blog, you will discover that Bible studies thrill me. There is so much wisdom contained between the covers of the Bible and I am fortunate to sit under the teachings of a remarkable pastor, Pastor Don Moore. Members of our church (Living Word Chapel in West Hurley, New York) are encouraged to teach and there are visiting pastors who stop by our church, I also study the Bible on my own and love sharing what I learn. One other passion is writing. My current work in process is a memoir. A scene from my memoir was published in a book called: Heavenly Company: Entertaining Angels Unaware - an anthology of angelic encounters compiled by Cecil Murphy. I'm hoping my memoir will encourage other survivors of abuse. I grew up in a home filled with abuse, including incest. For most of my life I was searching for something that would fill the void of not being loved by my parents. I tried many ways to find that love -- therapy, relationships, occult studies, and keeping my life so filled I had no way to think about my past. It was only when I discovered God that I was able to put the pieces of my life back together and walk forward in a joyous life. My nickname - wondering has changed from wondering where the heck God was in my life, to wondering what incredible adventure is going to happen next. I hope you enjoy my site. Please say hi, share some thoughts, and ask questions. I look forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. Have a blessed day. Heather
