De-lurk! De-lurk, I tell you!

I've really been enjoying this whole blogging adventure that I started last fall, after much coercing by my husband who, it seems, is ALWAYS RIGHT. :) The Lord has taught me so much this year, and I find that writing it down has been good for reinforcing the lessons learned. It is such a discipline, to put into words the thoughts and impressions the Lord has given me, but I'm liking this. I'm liking it a lot.

Awhile back I installed sitemeter on this site, just to keep up with the traffic that comes my way. And I have to say, quite a few of you are frequenting my little blog on a regular basis. 72 of you, in fact, today. I wasn't expecting so many visitors, but I certainly don't mind. I hope that you too are finding that life with the Lord is an amazing adventure, and maybe we can encourage each other along the way.

All that to say, it's time to de-lurk! Yes, that's's your turn to introduce yourself. Please leave a comment, and let me know who's reading and how you found me. Even if you don't have a blog or don't use blogger, you can still post an annonymous comment and just sign your name.
So give it a shot, okay? I would love to hear from you!

I'm Kelly and I'm NOT a lurker. But I am aware of a lurker! She is a co-worker of mine and she loves lurking on your site! :-)

Thanks for your blog and the encouragement it provides. And, thank you for your friendship over the years. You have constantly challenged me to be more devoted to the Lord and obedient to His commands, and you continue to do that through your blog.

Well, you know I'm here...enjoying, appreciating, empathizing and being encouraged...

Have a wonderful day!

I have been reading your site regularly since Dave left a note on my blog. It is encouraging to see other couples like myself and my Michelle raise their kids for the Lord and go through the same struggles. Please pray for my wife Michelle as she is due anytime to have our third child.

In Christ,

Enoch Moses

Totally a lurker! I'm pretty sure I first ran across Brandon's blog and have found all ya'lls from his. Your blogs are so interesting and encouraging. And I'm completely intrigued by the whole coupon thing.

Hi! This is Abbey Cox (Chesney) I decided to step up to your challenge and let you know that i am one of the people who frequent your blog. Shawna had given me her address so one evening after I was finished checking out her page I started looking through her "friends" and that is how i came upon yours! I must say it is very uplifting to read! Just to know that there are other mothers out there going through the same things i do is nice! Keep it up! Oh and your boys are adorable!

shawna said...


I didn't know you ever even found my blog! You need to start one of your own! How is the candle business going?

Kari said...

I guess i'm guilty too. However, I think I told you so at Michelle's wedding. Hehe. I'm too lazy and feel like I have nothing to share that's important. Maybe one of these days i'll begin one. Edward will give me something to talk. Mainly i'll be in need of advice from all you wonderful mothers.

By the way, it was GREAT seeing you and your family at the wedding. I was sad that there wasn't more time to talk and catch up. Hopefully soon. Also, I was just remembering how beautiful you and Ruth sang. Have a great night!

Steve, Dana and Maria said...

I don't think I've posted. I clicked over from "Life in a Shoe" to read your CVS tips. We are currently living in Romania from SC! Thanks for the invite to de-lurk! Dana

Eryn said...

hi, my name is eryn, and sometimes i am a lurker, but not often.

MagenRanae said...

Hehe...this is too funny! So many people read your blog and you didn't even know it! I'm not sure if you knew I was reading yours now, or not, but I started to with the couponing thing...I'm not much of a commenter.

Josh and Brooke said...

do i classify as a lurker? i'm not sure... i did find your blog through shawna's last summer i think.

i have enjoyed your blog for many reasons, but one being that i feel like i have been able to get to know you again. it's been so long since you used to come stay in tulsa with us and i've missed you! even though we don't "talk" alot, just communicating through posts has really helped us all become closer (i think)!

Reagan said...

Maybe I am a lurker - I rarely comment on your's or anyone's blog...But I read! I love reading your posts so keep it up :)

marti said...

I have lurked many times. I found you through Grace. Of course, from there I found many other bloggers that I know. What a blessing this has been to me. So much so I have opened my own account and have joined you. I just need to find out how to post links on mine! I'm so computer illit.

Thanks for your many God honoring posts. I'm amazed that the cute little baby I once knew has turned into a beautiful and godly woman!

meesh said...

Hey Rachel!
I found your blog through Shawna's, too! I have enjoyed both blogs, very much! Keep it up!
Michelle =)

tr said...

lurker is not a nice word, I will admit to missing you all so much. I check it daily, and go over the pictures, because it makes me feel closer to home. I wish the rest of the family would do the same thing, I miss you all so much, and usually weekly shed a tear or two. Today it was over seeing the church decked out in VBS! So wonderful that you all put your heart and soul into it. God Bless you,

Love to all! Isaiah 64:4-5 Toni :)
