Okay — has anyone noticed who posted a comment on my Photo Woes post? Go look . . ..
Are you back? Did you see that? Oh, my word. Anita Renfroe posted on my blog. I almost passed out. So here's the story:
It's like 11:30 and I'm sitting here working on revisions and an email ta das into my box. Being the concsientious person that I am, I zipped over there to read it. Not that I was trying to procrastinate the revisions, seriously it might be something important that requires my undivided attention. Right.
There's an email comment from my blog — side note: when you comment on this blog, the comments are sent to me via email (and they're posted on the blog). So here's this email from AnitaRenfroe.com and I'm thinking …. what?
And it's her! How cool is that? So, I zip off this cute but snappy email to her — nope, not what happened. I wrote her back and sounded like a complete nutcase. I was so star struck and just blown away. Of course, after all of that I didn't ask her where she found out about my blog and the post that references her. I sent her a follow up email, but I think I may be on the ‘watch' list at the Anita Renfroe site. So, I don't really expect to hear from her again.
I truly was star struck for some time, but then it occurred to me. She's serving the same God that I am. She's called to do one thing and I'm called to do another. She's a serving the King and is my sister in Christ — I shouldn't be star struck by her. I'm working on it — but she has a line of greeting cards. I mean seriously, who has a line of greeting cards? Snoopy and Anita, that's who!
Okay, I'm putting off this start struck thing and I'm forging on through the revisions and everything else that is looming large on the horizon. I do think it's so cool how wonderful God is. He knows that I love the funny and I needed something fun in my life with all this other stuff bogging me down — He sends me Anita Renfroe. What a blessing! He really lifted my spirits and made me remember just why I do what I do — I'm doing it for His glory, not mine. I'm doing it because He called me, no other reason.
But it was fun to get a comment from Anita Renfroe.
What a beautiful blog! And congrats on your email from Miz Anita. 😉
Oh, I totally understand how you feel! I pretty much felt the same way when I met Beth & Amanda!!!!! (still am :P)
WOW! That is so awesome. Don’t you just love it when someone you admire leaves you a comment. And you then do come to realize “we’re the same children of God.” Just some children are more famous that others. LOL!
What a wonderful encouragement. I’m so glad you got it.
Curious mind here is wondering if Ms. Renfroe has been able to respond to your email and answer your questions??
Yes — Anita did respond and she found the blog through Google Alert. I didn’t even know it existed, but I do now.
Okay—don’t think I’m a stalker or anything like that…I just came back today…’cuz I sort of needed a new laugh. The one from yesterday laughed itself out. But as I was strolling down the lane here…I found this. I have laughed a Anita R.’s routine and enjoyed it…when I read this–I thought you sounded like me when I got my comment from Patsy Clairmont! Yes—the REAL Patsy Clairmont! I was blown away! I called my mom! I just had to share the news! I don’t think she really believed me. But it’s still there! (I don’t remember which one, but I do have her on my sidebar now!) What was so funny—to God probably, because He was the ONLY one who knew what and why I did this…but I retrieved EVERY.SINGLE.Patsy book from my various shelves and stacked them by my bedside…just in case she came callin’. Naw, not really that…but I did put them on the nightstand to brush up on my reading of her books–in case she asked me what I’d read….of COURSE I couldn’t remember—hence the stack of books by the bed!
I love reading your open—honest blog. I think I scare people off with some of my honesty. Or, maybe it’s my hairdo. No, it is surely my accent!
I posted a blog (video clip) about our Bible Study my sister and I were preparing for ….and someone told me they didn’t realized my accent would be so “thick”. I surely must be the biscuits…chicken and massive quantities of peanut butter I have consumed in my lifetime. It sorta sticks.
