A Brave New World

This blogging phenomenon is a new thing to me. I've recently discovered several very engaging blogs that have helped me discover far more than I ever knew before about some people in my life. I'm not so good at small talk, so this is all very intriguing to me. I never really thought about doing my own, until one day I was commenting profusely on a friend's blog, and was sure I heard a voice coming back saying, "Hey, get your own blog!" The actual response was quite gracious, but still... The other thing is that my father-in-law has always told me I should write a book. Quite frankly, I'm sort of the sum total of all the books I've read, so who needs mine? But just maybe if I share the the turns my journey is taking, someone will be encouraged along the way. I can only hope so. So here's to the world of blogging to get us beneath the surface. And thanks to anyone kind enough to read and help me process!

Nice, Tracy! Welcome to the "blogosphere"-- and I look forward to reading and commenting! Joey just reminded me that I haven't gotten back to comments and replied to them, so I'm trying to develop that habit too...

Glad to see you on a blog!

Love,
Mary

Oh how nice to see your happy face looking back at me, Mary. This is going to be fun! Just think of the days when it took two (or four) weeks to get letters back and forth. And that was AFTER you found paper and an envelope and an overseas stamp and looked up the address. Thank you Lord for technology!!

Wow, what a great idea the Father has given you. I look forward to reading more of your journey, and of others. I don't really do a very good job of answering emails, so I am not sure I should even attempt a blogsite. Maybe some day. I will definitely respond to your site though.

Nice to see you Susan! Would you be more likely to stop in if I did a specific site for "you guys"? What if I were to try to post on Thursdays after we meet on Wed. night, just to fill you in on what God seemed to be up to as we prayed for you? Would that be something you'd be likely to take the time to visit weekly or so?

Tracy - Welcome to the world o' blogs! Now I get to "discover far more than I ever knew before" about you! Love you!

btw, I love your idea of having a scrapbook blog separate than your "thoughts" blog. I think I'll stick with one blog but I borrowed the word "scrapbook" to mark my "got it in a picture" posts. Thanks!

Thanks for stopping by, Melissa! As you can see, I've been too busy playing with gizmo gadgets on my other page to do much pondering here. It's coming, though. I liked your webshots slideshow embedded in your blog, but when I went to try to do one it laughed at my Windows98. Nasty. Soon...very VERY soon! :-) You know what is another VERY cool site for sharing photos is smilebox.com. It too scoffs at my OS. Oh well. You might want to give it a whirl.
