Near the end of last year I saw several people post a list of the first line of the first post from each month through the past year. Several days ago I saw Bet do the same thing, and that reminded me of it. It’s a fun exercise, so here are my first posts for each month of 2007. While looking through them I also decided to highlight certain favorite posts from each month as well.
First line from first post: Quotes for the new year: “There remaineth yet very much land to be possessed. Joshua 13:1”
First post: Snow day “… though it’s not snow, exactly. More like falling slush balls…”
First post: Yuck! “I had a hankering for a hamburger today…”
First post: Easter quotes: “I’ll be back later this evening with Psalm Sunday, but for now I wanted to put up the first of a series of quotes about Easter (or Resurrection Day, if you prefer).”
Other highlights: The resurrection of Jesus Christ.
First post: Talk about high security: “I haven’t flown in ages — I haven’t even been to an airport in a long time except to pick my husband up from a business trip at the curb.”
First post: Having devotions when you’re not feeling very devoted: “Several days ago, I was starting out my devotional time as I usually do by reading the day’s passage from a book called Daily Light for the Daily Path.”
First post: A belated — or early — happy Birthday to Jason: “Jason, my middle son, had a birthday a couple of weeks ago.”
First post: Book Review: The Potluck Club Takes the Cake: “The Potluck Club Takes the Cake by Linda Evans Shepherd and Eva Marie Everson is the third in a series about a group of friends from a church who started several years ago getting together for prayer and a potluck meal.”
First post: Another ER visit: “I decided to skip prayer meeting tonight to go to the ER. 🙄 ”
First post: Photo Scavenger Hunt: Red: “I was looking for the first picture for today and found the other two in the process.”
Update: I just saw that Kelli at There’s No Place Like Home did a similar post, only she has pictures from each month. Neat idea! She added a Mr. Linky here if anyone would like to post the first sentence of your first blog post of each month and link back to it for others to enjoy.
