instead of responding

I deleted a recent post that had some derogatory remarks about religion, and relgious beliefs of a friend of mine.

I had unlocked anonymous comments, and someone took this as free reign to be a royal pain in the butt.

So if anyone noticed it's gone, that's why.

And as I have said before, I am far from perfect, but at least I can say that I don't talk badly about anyone's church preference, denomination, or method of worship. I just don't for the life of me understand people that do.

If you want to "know" about someone's style of worship, ASK THEM, rather than condemn them from GOSSIP you have heard. I am an open book, if you would like to know anything about the way my household believes, and/or worships. If you want to know about my friend, that's his call. But I would be glad to tell you how to reach him.

On a lighter note, I am very excited about seeing Fireproof. I ordered the book today, The Love Dare, and am thinking I am going to love it.
I will let you know once I get it!

I am glad you didn't answer those comments. I saw them yesterday and knew by there being on there, that you hadn't read them. A for the movie and it's effect on me, my husband and I believe that
love is a decision, you are responsible for your ACTIONS; Marriage is a covenant, and God is the third party in your marriage. Praise God for His work to strengthen marriages! If you are married, seek out others who want strong, faith-filled marriages. We all need support at times and we can all give support at times. Unchurched couples are often the root of bad decisions for other couples, and you have to know where to draw the line. Encourage them to walk with Christ. Journey with others and help others to grow strong in their relationships. As an added dividend, the greatest gift a father or mother can give their child is to love their spouse. God bless, protect, and guide you. I love your blog, and your realness!

Oh man.. I didn't see the mean comments (thank God) but I was getting a few really mean ones here and there on my blog so I finally gave in and enabled the "comment moderator." I hate having to do that... but some people just give you no choice! I guess I just don't understand having enough time on your hands to run around people's blogs just to bash them or their friends. Sorry you had to deal with that!!

I really want to see Fireproof, too! We'll probably just wait until it comes out on Redbox and get it for a buck. ;) I've heard great things about it, so I'm excited!

I missed them too.
You know most of the time, derogatory comments are from jealous people. Sorry you had to deal with such nonsense.

I have anonymous comments available for my readers on my blog. I have received a few but nothing which is of topic or way out in left field. I have , usually, been one to say "If you stand by it, put your name on it." I have left an anonymous comment on one blog for my own reasons. I felt that it related the readers of that blog to anyone else who may be reading it, it would not have meant as much if it came from me. I anonymous comments make for interesting reading even though I have had few on my blog.

On the topic of marriage. I did some searches on divorce and it is interesting to see the divorce rates for diverse groups. There are statistics available which are very surprising when you group it down to different racial, age, and religous groups.

I think it is ultimately up to the two people involved in the marriage to make it work. There are many factors and temptations involved in that process. Blake and I have had our share of roadblocks in the past, and I'm sure we'll have many more. As long as we make our decisions with as little influence from outside sources as possible then we have no one else to blame but ourselves. That does not mean we do not need people to lean on in hard times or need our space from each other occasionally. Human nature is a powerful magnet.

it takes THREE to make a marriage work. Husband, Wife, and God.
