What day is this?!?

 
 
                  
I saw TreesRgreen78's response to Krissy's question this week and was moved by it.  Made me want to share about my screen name, though the story is not such a moving one. 
 
This week Krissy asks:
 
What is your screename?  How did you choose it?  What does it mean to you?
 
 
My screen name is BhbnEr2Him.  I knew I wanted to encourage others in their walk with Christ.  Even though I wasn't sure exactly how I was going to go about that.  I felt I had a message to share with other women.  God had blessed me with a desire to try to reach out to them and minister to them. 
 
So, my Bh is merely my initials. 
 
The next b stands for be.
 
nEr is my phonetic way of spelling near.
 
2 in this case is to.
 
And the Him is Christ Jesus.
 
My screen name is a reminder to myself.  BH, be near to Him.  Barbara, be near to Him. Remember why you are here.  Remember your purpose.  Bring Him no shame in what you do, what you say or where you go online. 
 
I pray I've remained faithful to my purpose.  The first thing I did was write a series of Devotions on Marriage.  They have been posted several places.  And now reside in their own journal that you can reach through the link in the side bar.
 
The next thing I did was start Life & Faith in Caneyhead.  Which is a mixture of life in the country, humor and faith related messages. 
 
And lastly I started a prayer group for women called Sisters in Christ.  A place to intercede for one another, encourage one another and find fellowship together.  Currently we have 50+ members, a lot of love for one another and many answered prayers!
 
Thank you Krissy for the questions.

  8. I've seen this a couple times this morning.
    Now I'm wishing I would have put a bit more thought into my name. I simply took the obvious route, which is utterly un-inspiring:o)
    I'm glad I know what your screen name represents, it has a powerful punch.
