For some time now it has been on my heart to write a blog giving credit to someone who really has not gotten the full attention they deserve in the way that needs to be given. This individual does a lot of behind the scenes writing of blogs, has edited The Stained Glass Window and generally makes this ministry look well researched and groomed in what is placed before the ‘public eye.’ As I have gone out into the public arena most recently and listened to comments made in regard to the blogs that are read I knew it was time to acknowledge this individual in a greater fashion.
The blogs that I write are a common sense type of ‘bringing heaven down to earth’ but the individual I am speaking of researches extensively on current world view subjects most of the time. She began to edit for the ministry a long time ago (when my skills as a writer were very juvenile). You see, all I ever wanted to do was preach the Gospel. But certainly I was forced (by the Holy Spirit) to become a more skilled writer and she has helped me to accomplish this goal.
Following Jesus is not just learning the bible and its scriptures it is applying it to everyday life and the understanding of a God who is still very much a ‘hands on’ Father. The ‘whys’ of why certain things are allowed to occur, in the society in which we live, desperately needs to be answered and she brings this type of knowledge to current events.
Remember everyone—always give credit where credit is due and don’t worry about it being too late. A pat on the back is always welcome when deserved all of the time. Thank you Katie Altobellis for what you do for our readers and those who have read The Stained Glass Window and for what you will write in the future—well done good and faithful servant!
It takes a lot of people and effort for this ministry to accomplish what it does and the following need to be thanked as well—Marjorie Ard, Susan Gahan and Dara Newberry. Well done!
