MY HUMILITY IS SHOWING...AGAIN

I realize that I am not as witty as Bugblaster or as well read as David. I'm not as thoughtful as Kim. Nor am I as prolific as Jim. I am not as well educated as Steve, nor as naturally talented as Jeremy. I'm sure that I'm not as prayerful as Daniel, nor as deep as Marcia. I can't write like Dan or Tom...But I've been to the "well" where I have been satisfied and am being satisfied.

(How's that for blogspoting, saying "I" a whole buncha times, and revisiting a previous post all in one shot?)

Wow. If I was as humble as you are, I'd be even greater than I am.

Garry Weaver said...

David,
Yep.

Kim said...

To use a phrase that I hear out of the mouths of my teenagers, that was sweet!

Steve Weaver said...

You're now officially a blogger (Using "I" a lot and linking to trick people to come to your site).

Jeremy Weaver said...

I started to say, "Wow! A link from a blogger that only posts once a quarter! Now I've made it!" But then I reconsidered because I thought it might hurt your feelings.
Instead I'm saying, "Wow! My dad thinks I'm naturally talented! Does he remember me?"
Now I'm going to sing you a song...






You have to turn on your speakers to hear it, silly.

Gordon Cloud said...

There's no "I" in blog.

Garry Weaver said...

Kim,
It's true! This blog is so sweet, it could cause tooth decay.

Steve,
You are also a mind reader. Site Meter says I have had 9,800 hits. I was hoping to bump it over 10,000.

Jeremy,
That was the best singing I've ever heard you do.

Gordon,
Don't be a hater.

Cameron Cloud said...

I'm impressed. Now you can write your future bestseller, "Humility, and How I Obtained it."

I'll be anxiously awaiting the release date.

Garry Weaver said...

Cameron,
Thanks for the idea! Do you think I could get Joel Osteen to write the forward?

Cameron Cloud said...

I doubt it, Garry. I understand he's been signed by Enzyte to replace Smilin' Bob.

Garry Weaver said...

Cameron,
Hilarious!!! I'll never be able to top that one. Maybe thirstydavid can. He sez funny stuff sometimes.

Daniel said...

Going to the well beats all don't it? ;-)

BugBlaster said...

You can't trick me.

BugBlaster said...

And how come I'm the only one that you don't call by their real name? I am deeply offended. I think you should apologize, because I have a real name and I really like it. I always call you by your real name. I don't like this. I don't like this at all.

I mean it.

Kim said...

Well, why don't you change your blogger id to your real name, BUGBLASTER?

Garry, he told the kids in our Sunday School class that his name is "Nerdy Neil." I think you should run with that.

Marcian said...

Well, I'm not as deep as the well, but I appreciate the kind descriptor. And the link. Maybe that will increase my readership to somewhere between "rare" and "occasional". *grin*

Even So... said...

Ha ha ha! Your little scheme didn't work! Technorati and TTLB officially hate me, so I didn't even know you linked me...I came over here on my own accord, 'cause I actually read you and like you, UNLIKE those cretins who commented above...yes I truly am a special person, good thing you know me...

Gordon Cloud said...

I tell you Garry, the more I read your blog, the more I am tempted to buy into this self-esteem business. You may have something there. It seems to be making JD feel good. ;-)

ThirstyDavid said...

I, for one, feel immensely blessed to know you, JD. You don't drive a Chevy, do you?

Steve Weaver said...

Dad,

Wow! You got 20 comments on this post!

David,

This is a non-smoking zone. How did you do that?

ThirstyDavid said...

Steve,

Sorry, I didn't see the sign.

How? It's magic!

Even So... said...

Honda (running for cover)...

Steve Weaver said...

23 . . .

Daniel said...

woah, now that this comment section is jumping with activity, I find myself drawn back to check in and see where the buzz is going.

Jeremy Weaver said...

Daniel looks like he's morphing into you, Dad!

Garry Weaver said...

And when Daniel's metamorphosis is complete, he will have what is often referred to as a glorified body.

BugBlaster said...

I can't match yer wit.
