After living in Oregon for ten years, I was never given the opportunity to see Crater Lake. I am finally fulfilling that wish today with my daddy:)
I commented on my daughter's status: "spoiled child".
So my friend and I were wondering if this one-word comment "Jezebel" was coming from someone who speaks like I do (with my daughter above), bluntly, without the computer emoticons and is just teasing me that I'm rocking the boat by maintaining this blog and posting this good information.
or . . . . . .
Could it be that this Anonymous person is really trying to send me a cryptic message? Could they be from the (insert creepy music here) "other side"?
If so, I'm thrilled!! Post more. Bravo, you are talking! You are going against the unspoken no-talk rule! Woo-hoo!!
For future reference, if you are joking (and since you are hiding behind "Anonymous" name), if you put a little emoticon, that might help us all to understand you better.
But in the meantime, I'm absolutely fine if you keep posting your "Jezebel" comments. It lets me know you are reading the blog! And if you truly are on the "other side", I know it secretly feels good to go behind you-know-whose back and communicate with those who have been "waging war".
We love you. We have been praying for you. It's very nice on this side of the fence where the grass is green and we have friends of our choosing and nobody gets to tell us who we can "befriend" and "unfriend". We hope you will soon experience that freedom.
And if you truly are angry at me and this blog, I would like to invite you to express yourself more completely. I will not remove your posts simply because you do not agree with me. It is important to have open communication. That opportunity was not given to us at BGBC. I am sensitive to the fact that there are raw emotions and some people who have left are still afraid for many reasons. That is the culture which was created in the environment of a spiritually abusive church. I do, however, have the ability to remove negative posts, but have not removed any as of yet. I reserve the right to delete posts which might be interpreted as emotionally/spiritually abusive, but would rather address them head on and dialogue. Doesn't that seem more reasonable? Let's talk.
Just think what happens when there is reasonable dialogue: good communication, misunderstandings are cleared up, relationships restored, no reason to file civil lawsuits!!! Who'd have thunk it?!
