Follow Me

If you’ve been here before, you might notice that I’ve made a few design changes. That’s what happens when I’m struggling to find anything meaningful to write about. I fiddle with the way things look. I went through this awhile back and the result was that I added some new features, one being “Followers.” I don’t know what possessed me – a moment of ego or a moment of insecurity. At any rate I thought this would be a cool thing to have on my blog…which is kind of peculiar because personally, I’m not that great at following things. I used to follow Calvin and Hobbes. Now I follow my friends on Facebook. I follow American Idol even though after every show this season, I’ve sworn I would stop. I am most serious about following Jesus, but even at that I’m pretty pathetic most of the time.

The fact that I have NINE followers is pretty amazing to me. I must admit that I, a.k.a. “Ego” was at one point a little embarrassed to have only nine Followers. Isn’t part of the idea of showing your Followers to show how MANY you have? And before you look at my followers and think I’m really pathetic, let me explain why one of those nine is ME. A friend told me she had tried to follow me, but couldn’t get the link to work. I decided to try it and see if I could figure out the problem. I didn’t figure it out, but I thought that maybe if I followed myself for awhile, I would…which kind of reminds me of how our dachshund used to chase its own tail.

If you’re still following me at this point, you deserve a good “following” song. I Have Decided to Follow Jesus would have been good. John Denver’s Follow Me comes to mind. (I was a big John Denver follower back in the 6th grade.) But I ultimately selected a song by the great Carole King. It’s also the theme song for a TV show I used to follow.

  1. Better – you get to be number 11! Someone beat you to number 10. Of course, if I delete myself, you can be number 10…but, isn't 11 your lucky number? JK! Thanks for following me. Love you!

  2. Evidently the Follower button isn't the only issue with my blog. My friend, Pat, just tried to post a comment and that wouldn't work for her. (If anyone has any ideas please let me know.) She emailed it to me instead, and it's too beautiful to go unpublished. Here it is…Hi Sabrina, Well, for now I will be just an unofficial follower–and I do regularly do so! I have grown very nostalgic in my old age and hearing a song from Carole King's Tapestry album can send the tears spilling. That was one of my favorites in high school. Your post sent me You Tube searching to hear another one off that album–So Far Away, and it made me think of the transitory nature of this life and people like YOU…"doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore? It would be so fine to see your face at my door." Looking forward to our journey ending in the Promised Land where none of the saints we've walked with in this life will ever be separated again and we will gaze at the One we've been following. Love you. Pat
