some things you've been sayin'...

I love blogging! I love pretty much everything about it. The thing I love the absolute most are the encouraging words you're always leaving me.

Sometimes I think your comments get over looked. I wonder if a strong word you've spoken to me gets read by anyone else? I don't usually read through the comments on other blogs. Every now and then one will pop out at me, but generally I just leave a comment myself.

But, I wonder how many wonderful things we miss in the comments on other blogs? I know sometimes one little blurb of encouragement can turn my whole day around. It's your comments I receive that make me feel this bloggy connection.

So I'd like to share some things you've been sayin' that have meant so much.

Kelly at Meow Spoken Here left with me some powerful words that stuck with me all week long. I loved this. "Something my husband told me long ago has always stuck with me when my thinking gets off track: 'If you know in your heart that you are a good person and your intentions are honorable and pleasing to the Lord, then nothing else matters'. There will always be others that will have issues with us. How we handle it is the true test. And my pastor always says 'Assume good will'. Blessings to you!

Kay at Mama's Little Wonderland gave me some of the best kudos out there by telling me this. "For a child to be comfortable in their own skin shows great parenting skills on your part and your husbands too! Way to go Mom!"

So many of you genuinely shared in our blessing of finding that beach house...

Katina at Peaceful Divas said, "Ahhh! I love the house! It is sooo cute and girrrrrl, at the beach too? I am sooo happy for you! God sees what you are doing! He sees your faith and he is blessing you for it!"


Janet at Janet Rose said, "Your post brought tears to my eyes! What a wonderful blessing from our amazing God! Congratulations on your new beach home and being closer to your family!!!"

Anna at My Cozy Corner reminded me that we never know who needs to hear something we have to share when she said this, "I needed this post this morning! It reminded me in a oh so gentle way that God is still in control and that He wants what is best for us. And provides that! Thank you!"

Katie at 3 Wittle Birds recently left the kind of comment I live for when she told she was inspired by my Love Dare journey. "I like this post. I too am struggling with broken promises. This is helpful!!! You are amazing and have inspired me to start my own love dare! Thank you for being so brave!"

These are just a few of the special things you've been sayin'! There's so many more, but I can't link them all. It's just a reminder that we can all learn from one another. We all have the ability to inspire someone! No matter what we post. Sometimes it's you that inspires me with your comments!

Have you been inspired or encouraged by your readers comments lately?

Oh Adrienne, thank you for the shout out! It feels good to know when something I've said really helps! I have a special post coming up as soon as I have the time to input it. It's a bit long, but you will understand why when you read it! Hope you are having a great week!

thank you for sharing the comments with us. I think this too sometimes a whole conversation will break out on my blog comments and i wonder if everyone else is missing it...

Thank you for the shout out! I'm so glad it was able to help:)

I have to admit I don't read the comments on most other blogs either. I think the only time I do is when the blogger has posed a question to readers I want to know the answer to. I think I will start.

Thanks for the linky love, Adrianne! I so enjoy reading your blog posts. We forget we're all in the same boat floating without paddles at some point in our lives. I am encouraged by your courage to post about those times. It's hard for me to put it out there for everyone to read on my blog so I just comment my way through my rough times now and then when someone (like you) shares similar things I've experienced.

(sorry I mispelled your name above, Adrienne...I didn't catch it before hitting "comment")

I love blogging too and I love reading because if I'm having a hard day, at least I know someone I'm reading had a spectacular day and I'd love to share in their happiness :) I hope I have inspired some and if not yet I hope to in the future!

Speaking of encouraging comments, thank you for coming by on my SITS day and leaving well wishes :) And relating to my bread addiction. No carbs? Lame!

You know what's crazy, I just wrote today a post that was inspired by a few words of wisdom that my husband gave me a few days ago that were almost word for word what Kelly's husband at Meow Spoken Here told her ^_^
