Jesus and CNN

I get a lot of really really incredible and moving letters from you guys – I really wish I could respond to more of them and I know that sounds totally cheezy, and I HATE it when people say crap like that, but it’s kind of overwhelming trying to follow up and give everybody the attention they deserve. That said, I do read absolutely everything and I feel really honored and privileged and teary-faced to be let into your lives in that small way.

Last week “News To Me” on CNN Headline News reran the piece they did on me last year and I got a new wave of letters from amazing people.
I forwarded one of them on to an associate producer for the show to say thanks and they put up a blog about it!

In other news, my mother is very glad to see that Jesus has made it into my top friends on MySpace.
Mom: Joy! Your brother told me that Jesus is your friend again!
Me: What? Oh. Yeah, I rearranged my page a little…
Mom: Joy, I am SO GLAD. He IS your friend, you know.
Me: I know, Ma.
Mom: Just CALL on him!!
Me: Ok.

Although… I just realized I have more myspace friends than Jesus does. What do you think that means?

    Joy, I too get harassed by my fundamentalist Christian mother about this thing. I ended up moving half-way around the world and only take her phone calls when I’m drunk. haha! take that, mum!

    Joy, does it mean you’ll get dressed properly for the summer heat (sandals ftw), gather everyone, transform bread into fish and water into wine, and have the BBQ party of the century? :P

    Nice freckles :)

    If Jesus had cute freckles, it might be a fair competition.

    Wow, I would surely like to see a survey on how many fans have similar personalities to Joy’s Mom! I know I do! Whats up with that?
