See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Comments on comments.



For some reason a copy/notification of every one's comments does not always make it to my email.  Some comments do, but not all of them.  So unless I get to my blog before you delete your comments, I have no idea what you wrote.  Other commenters may have responded to a particular comment, and I can usually figure things out that way - but I still don't always know what was written.  That's fine - you can get away with just about anything on this blog - but I usually will eliminate the remaining ghost comments.  Again - no complaints from me.  Although in some ways the ghost comments hanging out there are kind of fun - any thoughts on it?  Should I leave them or delete them?

Here's another thought - on faith.

Kind of off topic - or not:  "We should see all the events of our lives, whether agreeable or painful, in the light of faith in order to live truly by the spirit of faith...
In the injustices of men which we may have to undergo, we would also often discover the justice of God and, when wrongly accused of faults, we would see a well-merited punishment for hidden sins for which no one reproves us. We would also comprehend the meaning of the divine trials and of the purification which God has in view when He sends them to us." The Spirit of Faith and Its Progress, Garrigou-Lagrange
Considering that in the past I have been so well served by anonymous, sometimes even mean-spirited comments, I have decided to re-open comments for those who wish to remain Anonymous.

Disclaimer:  I also reserve the right to remove any comment I choose.  Arbitrarily.  And I laugh.

  1. I've not infrequently come to this blog from the RSS feedreader to comment on a post only to find it gone. Ghostly. Ghastly.

  2. Terry, you're always stepping on pingpong balls, aren't you.

    "Well it was just ghastly."

    What?
