Just for Joel

To honor a very special friend, I want to post the following video. To find out the background of why I would post this type of video, follow this link and read the shocking story of Joel's attempt to corrupt this prim and proper grandma.

So, Joel, this one's for you!

I really do think this is quite an honor! And it's not many people who get honored for their evil corrupting work!! :)

Aida said...

Genius of that sort needs to be honored.

Joel, you're the best.

I remember when all this began, lol. I love both of you Aida, you both have been such an encouragement to me for a long time now, and I thank God very often for all you both do and share, and for just being yourselves. Anne.

Aida said...

Ann, I guess you were there during the entire saga with all of the posts going back and forth. Apparently, Joel and I had a lot of free time then. LOL Seriously, Joel is a great guy and we’ve had a lot of fun with this whole thing.

I was really excited to see that you had visited my blog. You and Ron have been such an encouragement to me and I’m so thankful that you’re my friends. Thank you for your kind words.

Ha, ha, ha :-D this is just too funny! Just goes to show, anything can happen out in the wild! :-D

Manuela said...

haha...Joel's music can corrupt even the even the less saintly I do recall. So yeah, good job honoring him! He's got some special abilities that Joel...!

Aida said...

Lionwoman, you’re right about that and then when you’re friends with a wild man like Joel, anything is likely to happen so I’ve learned to just hold on and go with it. What makes it even worse is that Joel is in disguise as an introvert so who would suspect.

Manuela, I agree. Some of Joel’s choices in music were a shock at first but now I just say, “Well, that’s our Joel and we still love him.” Seriously, though, he’s done a lot to help me put the pieces together in understanding God’s grace. He deserves to be honored. He’s a great guy and he’s been a great friend.

Umm I won't share any of my bizarre music taste's with anyone. Hey I played that video for my two teenage something kids yesterday, they thought it was lame,and very weird. Hmmm Thanks for sharing your life and heart Aida.

It's just like the guys from Bo's Cafe say... I've found a safe place where you guys know the worst about me but love me all the more... LOL =D

Aida said...

Jon, I fully understand where your kids are coming from. This type of music is normally not what I would listen to but I’ve got to admit that the message of freedom that I’m hearing in it has really captivated me. It reminds me of Darin’s story about Brownie the hamster that Darin had when he was a child. It escaped from its cage and was missing for a couple of weeks. When it was finally found, they tried to pick it up and it stood up on its hind legs and snarled at them. It had tasted freedom and it wasn’t going to be caged anymore. Darin ended the story by telling his listeners that if anyone tried to put them back into a cage, he wanted them to become the meanest, nastiest hamster that anyone had ever seen.

Darin’s story and that video have really inspired me to fight to keep the freedom God has given me because there’s a lot out there that will try to take it from me.

Aida said...

Joel, I love the story of Bo’s CafĂ©.

We’ve all got areas in our lives that seem less than perfect but friends will love us in spite of them. You’re a great friend and a great guy and you’ve been an inspiration to me.

Manuela said...

Hi Aida, thanks for sharing Darrin's hamster story... That is so good and helpful! :) love

Aida said...

Manuela, I'm glad Darin's hamster story was helpful.

It's so good to hear from you. Don't forget to keep me posted as to how things are going with you.
