I chose this graphic because there has been an explosion in my email, folks frantic, sad, angry, etc. over AOL's decision to do away with hosting journals. I understand where you are all coming from. It's been great here. We've been blessed. But I want to encourage you all to reflect on the fact that all too often we neglect or ignore new opportunities and directions because we are comfy where we are. Often God will move us out of our comfort zone so that we can experience new blessings or that He may lead us on to new ministries. The old word for alive is quick. To be quick actually means to be able to change. When we loose the ability to change, a part of us dies. I pray comfort, peace and God's direction to you all at this time.
To answer many of the questions I am getting:
1. Will I still have the group Sisters in Christ? Yes. It is in no way dependent upon AOL Journals.
2. Will I move Life & Faith in Caneyhead? Yes, I plan to migrate it over according to the instructions AOL is providing through Magic Smoke. (See link at the top of the page.)
3. I don't want to loose contact, can we stay in touch? Yes! I will be at the same email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. I am on Myspace, Facebook and use Plaxo. (Tip: You can find me on Myspace and Facebook by my screen name: bhbner2him.) Also, I plan to bookmark new journal addresses and join any groups or lists of migrated J-landers that is available.
Chin up, friends. We'll migrate and explore new territories together.
