If You Had An Opportunity, Who Here Would You Like To Meet?

Recommended Posts

Well I personally do not know many here but I think since I am asking the question...I would like to meet Eric and BroMatt and maybe a few others [but I forgot their names - sorry] :th_popout:

I would like to meet Kitagirl, and a few years back there was a lady on here named "Lumi" who always thrilled my heart and I would like to meet her.  She really made an impact on me with her quiet spirit.  I don't know what ever happened to her, but will meet her someday in heaven.

I remember Lumi!  I think she may have moved over to the ladies forum, and then I think maybe she got offline from there.   I hope she is doing well.  Someone I wished I had met was "Annie" who I found out later was a fairly well known lady in the "IFB circles" who just recently died of cancer.  It really made me think about how I treat people online who are "anonymous" but could very well be someone I would truly like to know in person!   And also, it reminded me that sometimes people are going through things that we may never know about.  Only maybe a month before Annie passed away, she was posting on here "perfectly normally" when in real life she was very, very sick.

 

Oops, sorry for the rabbit trail.  Just thinking about the "people behind the screen names" I guess!

I would love to meet everyone, yes everyone, even those who I have had the most disagreements with, even those that who have gotten personal calling me names. I even think they would be more intriguing to meet than those who agreed with me the most & were very polite, & encouraging.

 

With that stated, we who are of Christ will one day be in Heaven together, perhaps them we will know that we communicated together here on onlinebaptist while still abiding on earth. And even if we don't we know one thing for sure, we who have Christ as Savior has no doom & gloom ahead of us. The truth is at any moment in our lives we always have the best ahead of us in our future.

If any of you are ever in New England let me know, I would love to meet up with you.

 

Now that's too far away, why don't we all meet at my home?  I'm sure my wife and kids won't mind cookin' for 100 or so, we've done it before.    Have you seen her rice pot and tasted the way she cooks pork?  Hmmmmm!!!

I didn't know about this. She used to post on here a lot. Why wasn't this announced? Not saying it's anyone's job to do that but I'm surprised this wasn't announced--maybe it was and I missed it. I didn't know that.

U4tarheel as he invited me on here, but I don't think he posts anymore. Bakershalfdozen--what happened to her?? I'd also enjoy being introduced to her cake shop, just me and the cake shop. Psalms18_28 (deafnva77) as we used to get on very well but she's another one who's stopped posting. MilkmanDan, Seth Doty (what's with the name change), Jerry Numbers. But yeah, pretty much everyone and with God's grace that will happen one day.

Ah, ok. I'm not IFB so can't view those threads. It's sometimes intrigued me to know how much of the forum activity takes place in there vs in the wider forums. 50%? Less than 50%?

I would say around 30-35%.

Oh sorry...I didn't realize I put that in a restricted forum....I didn't do it on purpose!   Oops.

Haha.   Bakershalf...I'm not sure why she doesn't post here as much....sometimes I think it's because she's been moving away from being IFB, but maybe she'll pop in and correct me if that's untrue.  I don't hear from her anymore, except she is the one who messaged me on FB (although we aren't technically "friends" on there) to tell me about Annie.

 

Actually I was the one with the cake shop though.  :-)   Unfortunately though I merged with a partner last summer and things went south fast, and I got out, and now I no longer own a cake shop or any cake equipment whatsoever.   We do have a dog now though!  Ha.

 

Some of the girls may have just moved over to the ladies forum, but I don't go there much because it's very quiet.

Sorry, that last one was to BroMatt. Kitagirl, don't worry I wasn't having a go or anything. And it's not as if I new Annie personally. In fact I don't think ever once spoke to her on this forum--I just read a lot of her posts.

That was a silly error--sorry about that Kitagirl. I guess because I haven't asked you about the shop for so long I forgot it was you who owned it and when I cast my mind back just now I associated Baker's moniker with the conservations. My head does that sometimes!

 

Also sorry to hear about the cake shop. You going to give it another go?

Yeah it would make sense that the "Baker" had the cake shop!  haha.

 

Well, no, not really, for several reasons.  One is a no compete until this October.  Two is that my ex-business partner has all my cake stuff and it's way too expensive and time consuming to start over.  And three is that now that we have a dog, I can't re-start in my house anyway!  And four, probably, God was ready for me to stop being a business owner.  I think He has other plans.

 

I'll be teaching next school year at the school my kids attend, although ideally I'd rather not be outside of the home at a full time job....so we're taking it a year at a time for now.
