Dear Anonymous

I have chosen to change the settings on our blogs to not allow anonymous comments.

Most commenters are kind and encouraging, but there are some that have nothing better to do than be rude and cruel. Usually I ignore their ignorance and move on. But today I decided that this is MY blog and I have chosen to have it reflect a God honoring atmosphere, so I will no longer allow anonymous comments. I do not have time for such nonsense.

As for you Ms Anonymous, I am not angry with you, nor am I hurt. If anything I feel pity for you. Pity that you feel it is your place to point out other's struggles and that this is best done by calling names and cursing; pity that you have such anger in you. Although my family and I are not perfect in physical size and do not dress in a way that pleases you, I do hope that my family would treat you kindly in spite of such a hard heart and sharp tongue. We have tried to teach our children, "If you can't say anything nice then don't say anything at all." I'm sorry you did not learn this lesson as a child. May you find a way to spread joy and not insults, maybe then you would not have to hide your identity.

Life is too short to spend time being so mean. Maybe someday you will know peace and joy through Jesus Christ.

I'm so sorry that someone doesn't have anything better to do than to be mean. I LOVE your website and wish we lived closer because I think we'd be GREAT friends! I'd love to have my girls to grow up with your girls as examples. Did that make sense?

You people are SO SWEET! :o) They really didn't hurt me, I have been made fun of my whole life, even by people who were suppose to 'protect me' so that I'm use to. time I am feeling down I'll let you guys know and you can lavish me with kindness...LOL! :o)

Honestly, I do feel pity for those that have nothing better to do than call names. They do deserve our prayers.

I do love blogging and reading other blogs, and as with anything else ya gotta take the good with the bad and PRESS ON!

Dana, that is so funny you said that you think we'd be great friends, because Olivia and I said the SAME THING TODAY...right after reading Rick's comment on Olivia's blog. We will have all of eternity together before you know it!
