Moderation

So, I've decided to enable my comment moderation so that I have to approve all comments. I never wanted to do this and never really had the need. Once in a while I'd receive a spam type comment, but I'd delete and move on. But really, someone needs to comment that God made italics to show emphasis and I don't need to use all caps? Really? You've read my blog about orphans, about Davids, about prayer and family life and you need to suggest I use italics instead of caps? Hmmmm.... I think YOU have some soul searching to do! :) LOL Yep, the YOU is in all caps... It's the way I like to emphasize and it's much more convenient than using italics for ME. So, I guess show me your comments and now I'll just have to approve them prior to posting. Bummer, but what's a girl to do? :)

I would just leave those comments because it reflects back on them, no you. It's your blog. You opinions. You can write the whole thing in caps if you want.

How silly people can be! It is sad that people don't have anything better to do than to critize others. "Little did they know" it is YOUR blog and YOU can write the way YOU want! :) I enjoy your writing and it is just fine :)!
I pray you have a wonderful and blessed day!

Haha, because with 143 million orphans in the world, we need to be concered with CAPS vs italics?

That's just SILLY!

SOME people just aren't as FAMILIAR as OTHERS with "BLOGGING GRAMMAR" and how it DIFFERS from REAL LIFE grammar.

Oh well. SOME day maybe they'll GET it.

Comment moderation is a good thing, especially the more people you have reading your blog. You never know when the crazies are going to come out! lol Don't feel bad, its for the best.

LOL I use caps to show my emphasis as well! You GO momma!!

Rachel said...

I love using all caps to show feeling! sorry you have to moderate comments some people have NO LIFE!

I'm a caps user too! Really in the grand scheme of things people feel the need to find something to be super critical about. It's an inward flaw of theirs, not yours.

I gets lots of *ahem* lovely comments on my blog. I got really down about it and my husband reminded me that when people feel the need to tear you down, it's because you are doing something well and that is how they "cope." Instead of feeling convicted and searching after that inwardly, they attempt to knock someone down a few notches.

So BLOG ON, MAMA! BLOG ON! (Caps FULLY intended!) ;)

You have to be kidding me. It's so easy to just NOT read a blog that annoys. Oh, and as you can tell, I'm a CAPS woman, too. WHOOOOOOP WHOOP!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
