Making Overtures (4)

Wednesday, March 19, 2003:

Since Saturday I’ve only received 10 notes! After the quick response of Tenrag on Saturday, I expected a steady flow to my inbox.

What I got were a couple of indecent proposals, spam and three weight trainers wanting to train me. Umm…they must have ESP or something because the only pic up there is my Driver’s License mug shot. (Note to self: take some pictures to scan and different--Soon!)

By late Monday night I was getting a little heated when I happened upon this Brother’s page. He had pictures up, but they seriously we’re not the pull. (Yeah, they caught my eye, no lie.) and But the brother was deep. He was expressing his thoughts so eloquently and humbly I was in awe. I looked at his age and it read 32. Dang, durn, dang and dagnabit! Too young. But I can send a note from one Christian to another, can’t I? So I did.

Dear Shuttertwo:

I quite enjoyed reading your page. Thanks for the peek into your thoughts. It is seldom that I come across a man who speaks so eloquently that humbly about his beliefs, life, and his family.

I pray that you are blessed in all your endeavors.

Peace and blessings,
What? Yes I did say “blessed in all your endeavors” I was still on my good behavior then.

So satisfied, that I’d made the perfect combination of friendly Christian female, (you could almost see me patting myself on the back), I logged off.

In the meantime, I perused the ten prospects whose profiles I’d painstakingly printed out. My only dilemma, how would these prospects know I was interested? I wouldn’t *gasp* contact them—I’d never done anything like that in my life and I wasn’t about to start now!

Ah well, books to ship, website to update and newsletter to write, I’ll just see what happens.

To Be Continued…

Just joining us? Here's what you've missed so far: Synopsis, (1), (2) and (3)

Spam, indecent proposals -- aggravating

"blessed in all your endeavors" --priceless

Enjoy all the compliments, spam and all.
