TV Interview Tomorrow

I am not one to walk up to strangers and ask for prayer for my neice's dog groomer's aunt Louise who is having her bunion removed. But since I consider you family, I would like to request some prayer for my mother's sometimes-ditzy daughter--moi--who is doing her first TV interview tomorrow. It's a program called "A Life of Influence" that will air on a local Christian network. The host is a lovely speaker, Laura Rudder.


I have this funny habit of saying what sails into my brain from outer space or only-God-knows-where, and I don't want to embarass myself by being stupid.

Like last week. I was measuring something at the desk of a lady who buys office supplies from us. A rather plump fellow employee of hers walked by and said, "Hi, how are you? Measuring today?" Instead of answering, "yes," I blurted, "Don't worry-I'm not doing waistlines!"

So you see how I am.

Will you pray for me, Please?

And when the program airs, I'll put a link here to the video for you. So you can see for yourself how God helped me not be stupid.



  1. WOW!! So exciting!!

    Of course, I'll pray for you!!! (You'll do great)

  2. Congrats on the opportunity Jeanette.

    You are in my prayers and I hope you have fun with it.

  3. HA! I have that same habit of saying whatever comes into my brain. Sometimes I find it a beautiful & refreshing quality.

    I'll pray and you go get 'em.

  4. HOW EXCITING FOR YOU!!! I will pray, you got it, and I know you'll be a blessing.

    You are hilarious!! Thanks for sharing your what-sailed-out-of-my-mouth moment with us.

  5. Praying and you will be GREAT!!! You are a carrier of God and you will say what He wants you to. :O)

  6. I know your pain!! that's why I love writing: you can rewrite and think about what you're saying before anyone else hears it!!

    Praying!! Good luck and God bless your interview:)

  7. I will surely pray, but I don't really think you'll need it. You're adorable and your comments are too!

  8. Oh, goody; I'll tell them you said so, Susan!

  9. Jeanette, I hope I didn't catch this too late, but I just lifted a prayer. And rest assured that we have ALL had those foot-in-mouth moments.

    May I share a classic? An elderly couple in my husband's family visit funeral homes often, for people they know or even barely know. They make quite a habit out of it.

    Once, my husband's relation approached the new widow and asked, "So, how's your husband doing these days?"

    Needless to say, all conversation stopped. Talk about an awkward moment! You know you visit funeral homes too often when you can't keep track of the deceased. ;-)

    Best wishes and God bless you endeavors!

  10. Yes, I will. Hopefully I made it in time. If not, we'll apply it for future use. :)

  11. Just got home--I THINK I did okay--my husband says so. We shall see when it airs in a few months...

    Thanks for your prayers!

    Love you,

  12. Jeanette,

    I pray everything turned out well, and am willing to bet you did much better than you think.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the interview. :-)

    Be well.

  13. I'm sorry I didn't read this sooner, but I know the Lord had you breeze through the interview. Looking forward to seeing it. :)

  14. What a hilarious blog. I thought I was the only one who managed to say things like that. I will pray for you. What a glorious opportunity. You will be great.

  15. Jeanette:
    It seems I am always coming along behind the news. I know you did all right.


Oh, it's YOU! I'm so happy to see you here today, and look forward to reading your comments.
