100th Post!

All I can say is - wow.

I've been reading through my archives, and friends, I must say you are incredible.

You've tolerated my rampant misuse of semi-colons.

You've glossed over the fact that I really don't like to use the word and. (Hey, it's totally overused - give the other words a chance! Or a comma, for that matter. Semi-colon, maybe?)

Don't even get me started on my improper use of possessives. (Is it it's or its' or its?)

Kindly, you've said nothing about my misspellings, such as (but not limited to):

Unususual. As in, that is a very unususual way to spell that word. And dumb. (Did I just use the word and?)

Judgement. I say, equal opportunity for "e"!

Reverant. As in, the Rever-Ant is coming to supper after church today. Make sure you leave him some crumbs.

How on earth? I won the Idaho State Spelling Bee when I was in sixth grade, for goodness sake! (I caught the reverant slip fairly quickly, but the others I have left in their place, to remind me to stay in mine.)

Anyway, thank you. Thank you for laughing, crying, singing and dancing with me. One hundred more posts, yes?

Have a blessed Easter weekend!

Yes!!
Keep it going, girl--and don't worry about the bad grammar--I'm right there with you!!
Congratulations on some beautiful work!!!

Stacy said...

YES!!!

And the word "judgment" gets me every time, too. I *always* want to add that "e"! :) Or, I should say: I always DO add it; then remember, "Oh, yeah."

(And the semi-colon above? That was *just* for you.)

Much love and (((hugs))) to you, Elise. You have blessed me abundantly through your writings here.

This is so funny! I'm so glad I'm not the only one with these problems. And I totally overdo the word "and" and a few other choice ones. Now you've got me going.
Too many things happening here, but I am slowly, but surely getting the taxes done. Thanks for asking!
Have a blessed Easter!

Grafted Branch said...

Congratulations! What a great idea for a 100th post. :)

I love semi-colons!

Tracy said...

Elise,
Your writing is so lovely and deep that I hadn't noticed the mishaps. That is a real compliment to you, because I usually notice everything...just ask my children.
My posts aren't perfect either, and you know, I loved the part that you said about you "left them in their place to keep you in yours." Humbleness. That's what I see in your heart! Have a very blessed day!

Holly said...

One hundred one hundreds more, Elise. :)

And, And, And. I love to use And. I love the freedom the blogosphere gives me to use it. :)

Randi said...

I am so glad that you started blogging, Elise. What a blessing you are to so many people!

If you can handle my comma-love, I can deal with your semi-colon misuse! Grammar is not my strong suit, even though I have taught it to my kids for many years. Maybe I should pay more attention to my own lessons???

Beverly said...

Yay! 100 posts!!

I have no problem with your attachment to the semi-colon. I overuse ... this ... ...
It just expresses the pause so wonderfully for me ...

Check out my thinking awards post ...

... and I hope you write hundreds more!

bluemountainmama said...

100 more posts, indeed! congrats on the milestone.....you are a blessing to so many with your thoughts and stories here.

i never use spell check so i am always discovering mistakes in my posts, especially if i wrote them while tired..... but it reminds me of an e-mail i have received where words are all garbled except the first and last letter, but you can still read them....it has something to do with how the brain perceives words and letters.

thanks for shining a light out in blogdom!

Joel and Jaime said...

I hope you write 100 more posts! I look forward to every one. And we don't even notice the spelling errors :)

Kendra said...

My mind is far to muddled to catch any of your mistakes. I can't even catch my own!
Please do keep posting, your writing is such a blessing to me.

QueenHeroical said...

Well, as you know I tend to bend many "supposed" grammar rules and make language up as I go so I am far from either noticing or fussing about such things in others.

You write beautifully and honestly and thoughtfully and gracefully and I am encouraged and inspired and touched by your words.

Congratulations on 100!

And ... HE IS RISEN!(soon)

Lori said...

I want to thank you, Elise. I am new to reading your blog and I am so blessed by it. Keep up the wonderful posts!

Katherine@Raising Five said...

Wow, that was FAST! I'm so glad you're writing - you make Blogland a better place with your presence.

Christine said...

You are soooo cute! I never caught those blunders, so I guess that makes me just as bad...

:)

Congrats! Can't wait to read more and more of your writing.

Lindsey @ Enjoythejourney said...

Here is to 100, or 1000 more! :)

deb said...

Happy 100th post, Elise! You've done a superior job of filling your blog with great writing. Thank you for blogging!

Beka said...

Happy 100th! I hope you'll write 100's more!! Every post of yours is such a great blessing to me: I always look forward to a new post from you!

I spell "judgement" with an "e" too; I just think it looks better :-)

Have a very blessed Easter!

Jen said...

Congratulations on your 100th post

Amy said...

100 more posts?

The answer is a definite YES!!

You'e awesome... keep it up!

Cindi said...

Congratulations on your 100th post. Don't worry about the spelling. I was an English major once. LOL, don't look to close at mine. Something about blogging makes you type it as if in a casual conversation.

The Preacher's Wife said...

congratulations Ms. 100! I just found you not long ago but I thoroughly enjoy your insight..Keep it up!

Kelly said...

100! Congratulations! I'm new to blogging and found you. I have a link to you from my blog because I enjoy your posts so much. Looking forward to many more! I overuse exclamation marks, since we're sharing!!!

Kate said...

I like to see the imperfections, personally! It's refreshing! If you had perfect spelling, along with the perfect writing and perfect flow of words, I might have to kill you. Ha! No, I'm kidding. I love reading your wonderful, inspiring thoughts and I wish you blessings as you write you next 100 posts. Love ya!

busybusymomma said...

Congrats on your 100th post! I'm good at spelling, but not so much the grammar part. ;)

Miriam said...

Elise,
I too am so very glad you're a-bloggin'! Beautiful writings, beautiful heart. May you have a happy, blessed Easter also!

Miriam

P.S. Loved this fun post!

Audrey said...

Cant wait to read the next 100 posts!!

Stacey said...

Wait, judgement isn't spelled with an extra e; and reverant doesn't have that A in it? AND what about semi-colon use??

Great post my friend! Happy Easter AND congratulations on your 1st 100 - here's to at LEAST 100 more!!

Wendy WaterBirde said...

henryteachers said...

Elise, I enjoyed going through some of your past posts that I missed before finding your blog! I'm so glad I did. I enjoyed reading them! I love your new Easter family picture. It is nice to put a face to your name now. You have a beautiful family. Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. That's definitely one of my goals--to be inspiring and creative in my homeschooling, so they will enjoy learning. I hope you had a wonderful Easter!
Mindy :)
