Yesterday, the blog turned 1.
Thank you to all who've read the drizzle/dribble/detritus through the year.
You've comforted me with comments, gotten me through two hurricanes, made me fluffier with recipes for good eats and become my pals.
I've watched you congeal into a community through the Revgalblogpals. Your creativity amazes me. The warmth of friendship with one another consoles me. I feel hope reading you.
Thank you to my inspirations for this blog: the emergent church blogs, Rev.Mike's House of Homiletics in Charlotte, NC, Maggi Dawn over the Ocean and more.
*Most searched post: the one on Betty Feezor. Thanks, Bob, for writing to me.
*The Book Drive for Coast Pastors Whose Theological Libraries were damaged by Katrina is such a loving act that I could weep and have. Because of a post here, a loving RevGalBlogPal responded with over 600 lbs. of books for my colleagues. I'd mention her name but I recall that she was doing this quietly. I'll tell her identity if she allows it. God bless her!
*I discovered that Mr. C is a great blogger. He should have his own blog not that he isn't welcome to post here.
*The discussion over which OPI color we like best is an enduring topic. Pedicures rule!
*Grace's Hurricane Cake made it's way around the Country and around my hips via the blog.
*I mourned Rusty and welcomed four kittens.
Now, as I submit my Annual Report, I request that those of you who read but do not comment begin commenting. Especially you, dear Ms. Bowed Twice Grew up in the Great Hometown Tennis Playing New Office LLS Pal, ok?
