Naive

I have always been naive. When I was little I would believe everything my brother told me. And believe me he can surely tell some tales. One in particular I remember was that my Memaws apartment building had a large quicksand spot in the back by the fig trees. I am still tempted to believe that today! LOL He would still say it was true too. :) One time some friends of ours drove us by a home that had a motion light installed back when they were newer items. The friend told us that a "crazy man" lived in that house and would turn the light on every time you drove by. Yep, believed it, for a short time. So anyway the older I get the less naive I am getting. Or at least thats what I thought. I am almost embarrassed to say that I was semi following a blog. It was the story of a supposedly Christian young woman pregnant with a sick baby. I have a heart for those issues and was so suckered in to believing this story was true. Man I am so sick to think that I fell into believing this whole aparantly made up story. Who would make up these things and what the heck for? So even though I thought I was better at this naivety thing, I was wrong. I think it stinks that people make up lies and it stinks too that now other blogs I find interesting could be made up by crazy people too. Maybe I should just stick with those of you I know personally. I guess it goes to show there really is only one completely faithful and true. That is our Lord Jesus and I am thankful that He is the way, the truth, and the life.

I was just telling Larry, when I saw your twitter about that blog, that you were still naive. So, I'm sorry, I couldn't help but smile when I saw the title of this post. Yeah, that was a bunch of rot! I actually saw all the buttons for that "baby" and never went to the blog till I saw the first post yesterday-- on someones that was upset about it. The fake blog was still up last night, but was stripped down to two posts. Today, it's completely deleted. Anyway, don't change regarding trusting people. It's better to risk getting duped than to become cynical. I just made that up, pretty good, huh? But true. =)
Anyway, saw your comment asking about lighting. I have NO clue what pro-photographers mean when they say that, but I just mean I'm snapping "practice" shots at different angles to be sure I don't have some crazy shadows in the picture. Since I don't have all that fancy lighting stuff like pros do, I got shadows of ceiling fans in some of Calley's kids pics one time. Just stuff like that.

I was wondering if you were changing settings and what they were.

I read that blog a few time to. I guess there are a lot of naive people out there...including me. Who would have thought that someone would make up a story like that though?? Isn't there enough in life without having to make up a horrible sad story? That woman needs some major prayer and some serious therapy to go along with it!! Don't worry about falling for that story....we all did!!

How sad...I am naive too. People always pull those kind of tricks with me, and I end up believing them. But why someone would lie about life and death issues that are so tough to swallow, I do not know.
