Dear China

So as most of you know, at least the bloggers know, we have a feature on our blog dashboards which allows us to track our audience.  Meaning, I can check my stats and see where in the world my audience is viewing from.  Percentages from each country have varied quite a bit over the past 6 months or so that I've been blogging but as of late each country has leveled off quite a bit.

However, the numbers have not landed as I would have expected...  I would have expected Canada or the UK to be in 2nd place.  But no, each week, China comes in a very strong second to the United States.  I just barely checked my stats and over the past seven days the United States makes up 72% of my views, China comes in 2nd at 18% and Russia a far 3rd at 3%.  This trend has been reoccurring for the past couple of months.

I'm happily curious about this.  I have readers in China!  HA!  Many of them!  I love it!

So, this post is for you China!



I want you to know that I love you, whoever you are.  I'm grateful you are here.  I feel connected to you even though I have no idea who you are.  It's as if any degrees of separation that may have previously existed have suddenly melted away.

China, if you would like to reach out to me even with a simple hello it would be most welcome.  It doesn't matter your circumstance - addict, codependent, LDS or not, random reader...  truly it doesn't matter.  I just think it's awesome I have readers in China.  :-)

I am truly grateful for today's advances in technology.  I'm grateful that the Lord directed me to write this blog.  I remember when I started I kept questioning who would read it.  I had no idea how anyone would come to find it.  The Lord gently told me that all I was to do was write and He would do the rest.  He truly has lived up to His end.  He has directed China to my blog.

So China, this post is for you.  Hat's off to you.  I honor you.  You are my brothers and my sisters.

I love you.

  1. This shows people from all walks of life are effected from all over the world. It's not just a man issue or a woman issue or just something here in the states. This is something that effects everyone whether they know it or not. Thank you for sharing and helping many all over the world.

    1. I agree! It really does effect everyone. It's a human disease. Not a man, woman, American, or white disease. It's anyone and everyone. :-)

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
