I want to thank all of my faithful readers and friends that have helped my blog, “Darrell Creswell – A Study of Christian Grace” reach 1 million views. Readers from every country in the world with the exception of Mauritania, Iran, North Korea, Turkmenistan and Chad have visited the blog. Mine is an independent blog on WordPress.com where I try to share the goodness of God’s grace. I humbly thank all of you for your support. The one million views really means nothing to anyone but me, but nevertheless – they make me smile.
