Contacting Abi

Sometimes you want to leave a message for someone at their blog, but there isn't a straightforward way of doing that ... and so you just leave an out-of-the-blue note in the comments of the the most recent post.

If you want to do that, it's okay with me ... but if you want to get me a message and don't want to say it in the middle of a conversation, this post is for you!

So, let me know what you want me to know here in the comments -- and I'll try to respond, if I can.

BTW -- I will probably get in the habit of deleting the comments, unless they are hysterically funny ... because once I have the message, well, there is no need to keep it, right?

Be blessed.

hi peggy! here's your first deletable! (is that kind of like a business deliverable, only in reverse?)

okay, so you're into hysterical but not historical.

so let it be written, so let it be dun.

Hehehe, Brad! Comments from Abberians are never deleted ;^)

Hey Peggy, when are you going to get a facebook account so we can toss rubbish your way there?

AbiSomeone said...

Dude, I am already on Facebook, but I just don't do the millions of add on programs because I have a firewall techno guru husband... ;^)

Besides, I just saw this evening that you are buying up all your friends.... ;^) You are listed as my friend, but you have so many friends.... :^)

Thanks for popping in!

Hi peggy,

I gave my daughter a copy of The Shack today. I'm hoping it will give me an opportunity to open up some dialogue about what it means for me to be Christian - a topic we've sort of avoided up to now. She is doing a little better. A bit scary when she first went in - blood sugar under 2 and her electrolytes all out of whack and threatening cardiac arrest but better now. In addition to regular meals and snacks she has a feed tube down her nose and an IV drip.

Thanks, Mariam, for the update! I have been praying and wondering how things have been going.

Praying specifically that reading The Shack would do exactly what you're wanting: open a path for dialog.

I was also thinking about her when I was writing the post about Enemy wearing the mast of Friend -- or, too often, Self!

Be blessed, sister, as you walk in faith the path laid out before you. You do not walk alone.

...uh, that's "mask" not "mast" :^(

Jim Baxter, I deleted your comment because I couldn't see how you were "contacting me" personally and your comments were so very long. No offense intended.

Blessings.

Hi, Peggy...
I'm enjoying your blog, but it is oh-so-deep and I am oh-so-shallow! :) I feel like I'm in a seminary class when I read what you and your friends write. I love it, but I can't help feel a little intellectually intimidated. I admire your gifts greatly. It's cool to see the difference you're making.

I've totally succumbed to the "Shack Attack." I'm in my second read-through of the book. I think it profound on so many levels, even though Young isn't the greatest writer in the world. I've recommended it many friends--and several total strangers as well. I ordered a couple of copies to share, and will no doubt be ordering many more.

One of the most positive results of reading the book is the stimulation it gave me to rethink John 14:6.

I really do intend to post my favorite movies, but it won't be limited to 10, I'm sure.

And feel free to delete!!!

Don

Don -- LOL! Well, we all get to be intimidating in different areas where we are passionate, eh?

At least, from years of teaching at PCC/Hope, you should be a bit more familiar with the whose cHesed thing. I have found that it really requires face-to-face unpacking for folks to get it. (And I didn't really "get it" until two years after I graduated!) But when one gets it, their whole world changes.

Are you kidding? I'm not deleting a comment that says such nice things about this old abbess! :^)

Glad to hear that The Shack has been encouraging to you -- and helpful in making Papa, well, more "real". I haven't gotten a chance to read through again ... but I will! The first time I was reading a borrowed book ... and I couldn't make my normal zillion comments. So I bought a hard cover copy to make my comments in -- and also bought a paperback to loan out!

Hey, have fun at Disney World! I'll be looking for your top movies post....

Hello, everyone!

Apparently I missed a number of you when I didn't update my email address change. Bummer.

I've gone in and removed the various comments trying to contact me ;^) but left the words of encouragement. We never delete those! :^)

Thanks....

Hi Peggy,

Just checking to see what's up with you as I haven't heard from you or your blog lately. Is everything OK?
