But, I don't want to be deleted!!!

Blogging is such an interesting event. Someone (in this case me) taking time out of his/her day to jot down their thoughts on any given subject for the whole world to read. I enjoy thinking, and I'm sure most who know me know I enjoy telling others what I think! Here's the problem...

Yesterday, my pastor told me he was about to delete me from his main page for lack of blogs.

What has this world come to???? Now I am motivated more than ever to make sure I take some time to process.... because... I don't know about you but...

I DON'T WANT TO BE DELETED!!!!!!

Ok, I know this is a bit extreme, but there is some interesting truth to my statement... let me explain - no - take too long let me sum up.

This past weekend we went through the "Boundaries" Seminar again with Chip Judd
POWERFUL Teaching!!!
One of the greatest things I have learned over the years is that I really don't NEED you to like me, I would like it, and I will strive to be a pleasant person in my interaction, but deep down, I don't NEED you to like me to be satisfied with who I am. The Blog world has opened up a new, and very strange symbiotic relationship that revolves around thought... not connection, not action, not coffee (I know right, how weird), but around thought. I have had many conversations with Associate Pastors, Youth pastors, Senior pastors, Friends, Families, dogs, cats, etc. etc. that all revolve around someone Else's thoughts.

hmmmmmm

Well, I will say that I too am intrigued by other's thoughts on life/love/and general well being, and will continue to blog surf, as well as post (Although I will try to post more frequently).... But, for my 2 faithful readers (you know who you are) I don't NEED you to read my thoughts.... but I sure do like it, and for the love of all that's holy...
PLEASE DON'T DELETE MY THOUGHTS..... There all I have some days [;o)

WOW!!! I'm keeping you on my blog list... at least for now. And believe it or not I like your thoughts even if you don't need me too. So as for one of your two readers, I'm happy to see you are a newly comitted blogger.

Well if your wife reads your blog then you have 4 readers with me and my wife (even though she doesn't read mine). She's been trying for 9 years to get me to read her thoughts... when all she needed to do was write a blog, scarry eh?
