Posting to Save My Soul

I was online, looking around.  Checking out my reading list.  Looking to see if a few new blogs I had followed had made any posts I had missed.  Then, I scrolled back up to the top of my Blogger Dashboard screen and I saw the number of posts I have made here at Life and Faith:  666!!!

Well, I don't want my blog associated with the number of the beast!  So, I had to, of course, make a quick entry so that the number would roll and I'd be at a nice, safe, decent and Holy 667.


In case you've had your head buried in sand somewhere all of your days, the beast I refer to is in John the Revelator's book in the Bible and the number 666 is an important clue to his identity:

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. - Revelation 13:18, JKV

Now I can push post, finish Perry Mason, go to bed and sleep soundly.

  3. Haha. 666 posts is a huge number but a "bad" number indeed. Smart thinking for getting post #667 up fast. ;)

    1. Yes, Chrys! Perhaps Blogger should consider just skipping that number.

    1. Not something I normally look at either, Paula, but that number just jumped out at me!

  6. I'm at 1150 on PS Annie! I have no clue what my badly numbered post was about, but I would have likely gone into freak mode, too, trying to make it go away. :) Have a blessed weekend!

    2. Thank you. It has been okay so far. :) It isn't as many posts as it seems, though, because they are spread out over about 4 or 5 years or so. Wouldn't it be great to be able to make that many posts in 1 year?

      Have a great evening, Barbara. :)

    3. I don't know. That would be 2 or 3 posts a day! I personally have no desire to do that, nor read that many. I've been blogging eleven years. I've took a hiatus' a time or two. No, a couple of posts a week is fine with me. ;)

  7. Numbers are fantastic. A fun fact is content which seems to boost visits too. Your blog is a year older than mine so its not the quantity but the quality, well done Barbara!

  8. I never thought of looking at the number of posts I've made. I know I can't be up to 666 yet but now I will have to look.

    1. I was just scrolling back up the page after looking at my reading list, and my eyes just fell on that number and I thought "What on earth?!"

  9. I used to work as a host/waiter for a restaurant. One Sunday, a local minister approached the cash register. His bill was $13.34. Being somewhat math-inclined, I knew immediately what his change would be as he handed me his twenty-dollar bill. "And your change is... $6.66. Does that bother you?" I asked. He just laughed and said "I have faith in my Lord."

    1. Love His answer! And yes, really, I'm trusting Jesus, too. I'm just having fun with the whole number thing.

  10. Awww... Couldn't milk the 666 for a while?

    1. Naw, once I saw it I had to make a move.

  11. LOL! I fully comprehend and would have done the same thing! :) Oh, and when my number of blog followers had reached 666 I was hoping that a 667th follower would be added to it...quickly! LOL! :)

    1. Oh, if I ever get that many I'll probably be going around begging someone to please follow me! LOL

So glad you stopped by! Come 'round any time. ~ Barbara
