KeziahCarrie may not be the most memorable of website monikers, but when I was mulling over all the practical possibilities, it’s the one that seemed to have the most meaning and set the right mood for what I thought God might want me to say.
During the mental competition that ensued, KeziahCarrie was deadlocked with Front Porch Swing, and every now and then I second guess myself and wonder if FPS might have made more sense than KC. I’m a woman who contemplates things. I analyze them. I pick them apart. I weigh the pros and cons. I decide. Then I unravel the decision and start asking opinions. When other people weigh in, sometimes I listen and sometimes I’ve already decided, and I’m just searching for validation. I sort of wear myself out.
It’s the same type of thing that happens to a lot of WordPress writers when we start looking at stats. Those are the daily/weekly/monthly/yearly numbers that tell us if anyone is reading what we’re writing…where they are in the world…what posts they preferred and whether they cared enough to click on the “subscribe button” and come back. The stats can blow your mind in a moment, make your day and send you away walking ten feet tall… OR… they can leave you dumbfounded and doubting, teetering on the edge of depression and despair. Such is the POWER of stats. You try not to look and then you glance up and see the Stats button and you start to click on it, and then you don’t, and then you do.
It’s a mountain I don’t intend to travel around for the next 40 years. I see that sneaky snake. And I remember the song we sang in Vacation Bible School. Be careful little eyes what you see! 🙂 So, I cast my glance away from the numbers to the real reason many women have joined us here at www.keziahcarrie.com. It’s the Search Engine Terms. A column of information guaranteed to lift spirits, make you laugh and remind even a doubting Thomas that God has a sense of humor, and can send you straight to any website even if it has a strange name.
Beautiful big houses…kayak woman…if I had the wings of an angel in prison walls have all landed women on this
page. My sister’s smelly socks…. world’s most smelliest socks… and my son’s personal favorite… deadly smelly socks…may
have sent some men to this site. I’m not pulling your leg or blogging about the pastor; KeziahCarrie popped up, as a possible
answer, for those Binging, Googling or Yahooing their way through these words. How do you draw a guitar…stand in the rain…or make an angry face in the darkness? Happy people talking…God dreamed you…and my personal favorite…handshake in front of the Christmas tree.
A donkey drinking oil painting may or may not be better than a gift wrapped in money but little things matter so reap investment in the long run. There’s a time image, life memories and oddly enough someone beating donkey.
Readers have searched their way here from Egypt, Italy, Australia, Indonesia, Spain, Germany, South Africa, Columbia, Trinidad, Canada, Singapore, Sweden, Jordan, the Philippines, Paraguay and some other places I need to Google. I guess all writers dream of a mob mentality on their out day download.
The Search Engine Terms surely documented to ease my wondering mind… two hits for front porch swing… but many more for KeziahCarrie! 🙂
God is good, God is fun, God loves laughter and whether you believe it or not, He works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose… even if He has to use majestic white horses calling on a rotary wall phone.
“A joyful heart is good medicine…”
“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.”
The craziest thing I’ve searched recently:
How to stop a fat horse from eating?
And you know what?
There are DOZENS of pages dedicated to the topic.
What’s the wildest thing you’ve searched lately?
Come on, you can tell us.

This is SO SO Wonderful–there aren’t enough LIKES!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart–God bless you! Love, sis Caddo
You are so very sweet. Thank you!! Just when I start to doubt myself, God sends a messenger. 🙂
Found my way to your page today and was once again reminded of all the blessings God brings into my life through unexpected paths. You are a blessing.
It always seems when I’m on the verge of saying “I quit” He sends me a reminder to keep going. 🙂 You too are a blessing. I still cherish the day we all spent working together.
