Goin' to the chapel of love....;)


I want to write something people want to read. I go and look at everyone else's blogs and they have like 12 comments...and 14 or something and I go and look at my blog and I have 2, and 2 ...and oh- goody 7 at most...:( Is it because my blogs tend to be long?
I'll try to write something today that warrents more comments...

Well, something that may be worthy blog material is a part in the play that my youth leader is writing. Ok, let me lay the foundation...there's this 20 something Drama teacher/youth leader, single christian...named Jennifer. Than there's this guy, Joshua, single christian also and he helps a band out...in some sort of leadership role.
One night they are at a coffee house helping to host it...mcing. Joshua and Jennifer are working with the different acts ,up on stafe. Jennifer goes to do something, Joshua doesn't see her and bumps into her. Oops, he bumped her, causing her to fall off the stage! Lo and behold she broke her ankle...she heard it crack! Obviously it's Joshua's fault. He ends up taking her to the emergency room, and they have to wait there for hours-together, ohhhhhh...
That's where their relationship starts....guess what happens, yup they eventually get married, IN THE PLAY! Interesting huh. One of the reasons the lady writing the play puts their story in, is because they are the epitomy of purity before and during their courtship relationship.
Sure I'd be interested in being Jennifer...(ya'll's probably rolling your eyes...and saying "of course she would!")

Hey I may get married after all, even if it's only on stage! Silly me! I know ya'll who knew my reputation at Bible School will get a kick out of this. I'll keep you updated...We don't know yet who's getting what role in the play, so I mayn't get married, at least yet....

I was thinking about making the title of this blog, "I might be getting married!" I think it would've caused a stir...but I may only be "getting married" in the play! Huh!

Of course you're loved! And probably not just in the play, either! I haven't been to your blog in a few days, or I surely would have poured on Words of Aff already. A lack of comments doesn't mean a lack of readership or a lack of interest. I've found out that some of my blogs that received the least comments were in fact the most meaningful/enjoyable of all my blogs for certain people. Those certain people just didn't comment about it. (Don't ask me WHY but they didn't!)

And you should do blogging for yourself or as a way of giving to others, not as a way for other people to give to you. Hopefully they WILL give to you, but if you don't expect it then it's a nice surprise.

Don't over-analyze how to get other people's comments. I wrote a humongous monster post today and I stopped in the middle and realized that I'd get fewer comments because there was so much material. "Hmm, maybe I should spread it out!" I thought. But you know what? I went ahead and did it anyway because that's what I wanted to do...I wanted to express all those things at that moment and I didn't want to put it off because those things won't seem so important to me later on, or I might forget them. There's my two billion cents!

ahhhhhhhhh, thanks Craig...blessed my buttons!:)
Good points! Sometimes "cyberspace" can feel lonelish...when we don't get alot of feedback...but you never know who's "listening"...

Yeah...be true to myself! Amen.
When you get all this words of aff...and encouragement that way, it's easier to be:)

Sounds like good advice, Marie...but I totally understand how you feel, because I'm a words of aff myself.
