On May 4, 2006, this blog, The Heart of a Pastor, was born. I didn’t pick this day because it is Star Wars Day. You know what a I mean, right? “May the 4th be with you“. Dorky I know, but even though I like Star Wars, this day was completely arbitrary 11 years ago.

Eleven years ago my wife showed me this thing that the pastor at her former church was doing. I had never heard of a blog before so I explored this “thing”. I liked what I saw so I decided to give this blogging thing a whirl. I started at Type Pad and wrote there for a while. I liked it but I had to pay for it, so when I eventually discovered WordPress, I transferred everything over.

My blogging over the years has been up and down, and this blog has gone through a number of changes. Through it all, though, I have grown with this blog. Even though the readership of this blog may not be all that large, I do enjoy writing; even if only for one person. So if you’re reading this, thank you for stopping by. I hope and pray that God is glorified through my writing. How long will I keep this up? I don’t know. As long as God keeps giving me things to writing, I will write.

So there you have it. The eleven year anniversary of this little blog. My God bless your day and May the 4th be with you.

Sorry, I had to say it 🙂

  1. No, really you did not have to say that. Nor repeat the joke about the man and wife going in for marital counseling. The counselor asked the wife what she thought the problems were with the marriage. She replied, “He is obessed with the Star Wars movies. He even talks like that little Yoda character ALL THE TIME! I cannot stand it any more. I want out!” The counselor asked husband to respond and he said, “Hmmmm, divorce is strong in this one.”

  2. And may the 4th be with you as well. We enjoy your blogs and hope they will continue.
