Seventh Anniversary

Wow! Has it now been seven years since I started writing the Birds of the Bible articles? February 2008 is the original beginning month of the blog. It was started using Blogspot, but moved here to WordPress in July of that year. If you take a look at the articles below you will see how the Lord has been blessing over these years.

Today with almost 1.3 million visits (with WordPress), over 1,100 followers and 216 Flags of countries that you have visited from, I am amazed. Here is a quote from the 1st Anniversary blog:

Our pastor just reminded us of a quote by William Carey, an English Missionary to India:

Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God.

Great Blue Heron by Dan

I am not sure this was attempted as a “great thing,” but it was attempted to honor the Lord. That is a very great thing, and God has turned that attempt into a blog that has been visited over 10,000 times just since July. Many of those visits have come from around the world. Thank all of you for your visits.

Carey also said, “If I begin a thing I must go through with it!” This blog has been started and we trust we will continue to keep writing about God’s wonderful creation, especially His birds, and the joy of observing all God’s marvelous handiwork.

Because of this blog many you have become great friends that most we have never met personally, and you are from around the world, where Dan and I will never visit. Yet many of you will be sharing eternity with us and we will meet as we share the presence of Our Saviour. What a thought!

Thanks to the many writers that have added greatly to the blog; Ian, Dottie, Emma, Golden Eagle (Baron), James J S Johnson, Stephen, and others.

Thank you for your visits! Thank you for your friendships! Especially THANK YOU LORD!

I would like to use Paul’s words to express my feelings:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; (Philippians 1:2-6 NKJV)

Yes, I do pray for many of you even by name. I especially pray for those of you who do not know the peace of knowing my Savior and the Creator of these fantastic birds.

  2. Thanks, Myra, you are one of those great friends that I now have because of this blog. Trust you daughter is doing better. Continuing to pray for her, and you.


  3. Oh, I’m so excited for you and Dan. Congratulations and may you post millions more articles before the Lord returns. And just think, even if He tarries long enough that we go on to Heaven, these posts can still sit right here and affect millions of people anyway. As far as I know, what goes into Cyberspace stays in Cyberspace, and who knows where all it may end up??????

    • Thanks, Sandra, but you make me tired just thinking about posting millions more. :)
      Your thought about Cyberspace is quite amazing. The Lord said His word would not return void.
      Thanks for your friendship we have developed. Lord Bless.


  4. What a great work of God has become — may God continue to bless it! The Dusing Duo has honored God and blessed all who have eyes to see. Happy 7th anniversary, Dusings!

    • Thank you, Dr. Jim. You are a great part of it now, for which we are thankful. Keep those articles coming if we are going to “post millions more” according to the remark below yours. :)


  5. We see God’s hand in all His creation! My husband and I just spent 9 days in Naples, Florida, all of which was new territory for us. We enjoyed counting the number of alligators we saw, watching the slow and mesmerizing movements of the manatees and observing so many varieties of birds. (I wish I knew more about birds to identify all of them by name.) The best surprise (and gift) from God was seeing a flock of roseate spoonbills on the last trail we hiked. Everyone nearby was excited and shared the news with strangers about this beautiful sight.
