What Had Happened Was...

I don't know how many of you saw the post I put up yesterday morning, but it was basically one of the songs Jeremiah has recently written. There was something a little...stark about it. When you here a song sung, you have to strain to catch all the words, the music softens things a bit, but when you just type it out as poetry it puts the writer out there. Anyway, I of course let Jeremiah read it before I posted his thoughts and he spent an entire day telling me he just wasn't sure. Then yesterday morning, as he was walking out the door for work, I asked him again if I could publish it and he said, "Just go ahead, I guess." So, I posted it. Was happy to share a beautiful piece of him with you. But then he called back mid-morning and sort of panicked at the thought that he was so out there on the world wide web. I understood. I have to work hard to keep myself from deleting a lot of my posts. But, I took it down. I did, afterall, say I wanted to be trustworthy of the heart he shares with me. I just didn't want those of you who did read it, to worry that we were in a fight or something. I DID get permission before I posted it, that permission was just retracted :) Maybe he'll get brave later and I can put it back up!

So funny...I didn't get to read the post, but Lindsay told me about it. The EXACT same thing happened to me this week. I posted a video of David and Matthew and he said I could put it up there. Well, Sunday morning he woke up and said he had been thinking and isn't too sure of this "blog" stuff and asked me to take it off.... So I did. Miss you!!!
