Yesterday's post was the 200th published on this blog. So this is number 201. Not many in 2 years and 5 months - not compared with people who regularly blog daily. But more than I thought I'd manage when I cautiously began blogging back in May 2009.
I'm annoyed I missed marking the 200th post in some celebratory way yesterday. I blame my house keys - they decided to get lost. (Yes, it must be their fault. It couldn't possibly be mine, could it?) So I blogged about lost keys instead. A comment on that post suggested I should change the blog name to 'Finder' but I'm sticking to Seeker. The reason I chose that name is still important to me. You can find the explanation on my 'About' Page. To save you time, here is what I wrote there:
"Why is this blog called Seeker?I chose the name when I started blogging as a complete novice in 2009. I've stuck with it. It fits. A saying of Jesus I find challenging is "Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness" (Matthew 6: 33). 'Seek' in this context means 'strive for', not just a leisurely exploration. So I'm sticking with the name because it challenges me. I hope some of my posts may challenge you. On the other hand (you can tell I'm an Anglican) I am comforted by belief that the true 'Seeker' is God who reaches out in love to 'seek and save that which is lost'. So even when I mess up, which I do, I know there's a way back which God has prepared. I hope you will also find that Way and that Love."
Tomorrow I hope to do a round-up of other bloggers who have helped me on my way, challenged or amused me. Watch this space...
