she takes the prize

dear emily,

if you can imagine a dark haired 'lucy' who sings as well as
ricky, then you know my friend b.  i walk with her every week,
and always say the same thing to hans that evening, "b. is like
good medicine to my soul."  she makes me laugh, cry, and want
to do...well, MORE!

we knew each other in high school but were very different from
each other.  she was so zealous for the Lord that she fasted 'make
up' on friday, while i was  more concerned about whether i had
a date on friday.  she never  held that against me, though, which
is one of  the things i love about her.

when everyone else went to college, she headed for an israeli
kibbutz and fell in love with m.  after he asked her to marry
him, she said, and i quote, "i bear witness to that."

how romantic.  :)

they promptly had six kids, all at home in a party-like atmosphere.
mine were born in a hospital in an anesthetic laced atmosphere.

she recently tested out of college without ever having taken a
single class and is now getting her masters in biblical studies.
have you ever heard of such a thing?

what an inspiration "to press on toward the goal to win the
prize..." philippians 3:14

love,
lea

Hooray for someone who knew what she wanted to do, and did it. :-)

Oh dear! Ol' Aunt Amelia is losin' it! I already posted here, yesterday! :-)

Now back to yesterday, and that question someone asked you, about "do you have site feedburner" or some such. Mmmm, I think I am having the same problem, that reader had.

See, I follow blogs by Google Reader. It shows me when blogs I follow, have new posts. But.....

And here is the issue....

Your blog shows up in my Google Reader, as the LAST post being on November 6, 2009! Eeeeek! So I betcha' this has something to do with some setting you made... "Deep in the bowels" of your Blogger Settings. But! I don't have any idea what the Setting could be. Nor how to change it.

-sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-

Perhaps someone else of your readers will be less *Technically Challenged* than you and I. >,-) And can tell us what's going on. I hope....

Both you and "B" have had a lasting affect on my life. You both were and still are inspirations to me and many others I'm sure:)

I wanted to leave a comment on your newest post but for some reason I could not. THANK YOU for visiting my blog and for your sweet comments...I am dreadfully behind in my blog visits but hope to catch up soon. :)

Harvey is one of my faves and that is SO NEAT...wow! We are classic movie buffs here at my house...even my kids love them. They don't make them like they used to.

Lea, see if these help fix your feed.

Go into Blogger for your blog, click settings, basic and check that you have "yes" for add your blog to our listings and "yes" for let search engines find your blog.

Also click on Site Feed and check that you have either full or short selected (something other than none).

and lost my whole page...

An amazing woman to be sure! You are blessed to call her "friend."

For whatever reason, I am unable to comment on your post about spanking, which I find to be very balanced. I agree with you.

Vee said...

Oh, I always forget something...your blog looks delightful!
