An Awesome Google Reader Find

Are you as obsessed with Google Reader as I am?

One of my favorite G’Reader features is the ability to subscribe to your friends’ “shared” feeds. This is a great resource for discovering new blogs, as well as interesting articles you wouldn’t have found otherwise.

Today, my friend Brooke shared a post from photographer Alison Conklin‘s blog. Alison had recently shot a wedding with a ceremony that had left a lasting impression. Check out these beginning lines from the ceremony:

15 years ago Shawshank Redemption was in the movie theater, Keanu Reeves was “speeding” on a bus, Ace Ventura was detecting pets, Forrest Gump was “running” through the academy awards, and Samuel Jackson was eating a Royale with Cheese.

During that time Erkel was teaching us that Family Matters, A.C. Slater and Zack were chilling with Jesse, and everyone wanted to live in 90210.

It was on a beautiful Wednesday night at youth group that Nicole, who was wearing a bright-colored shirt and denim overalls, “Saw the sign. Yeah she opened up her eyes and saw the sign”. It was what every girl was looking for: dreadlocks and a striped purple sweater. “Whatta man, whatta man, what a mighty good man,” she thought as Jon walked through the door with his “mind on his money and his money on his mind.” It was infatuation at first sight. The pursuit was on. A pursuit that would one day shift from infatuation to a story that has been an amazing picture of God’s mercy, grace, and faithfulness.

How ridiculously amazing is that? I love it! I hardly follow wedding-related blogs anymore, so Brooke did me a great favor by sharing this post on her G’Reader! Thanks, Brooke!

Do you use the “share” function on your Google Reader too? If so, what is your public feed URL?

(My public feed URL is located on the sidebar to the left of this page. Just in case you’re too lazy to go searching for it, it is http:. But be warned: I share a lot of stuff!)

  1. Thanks for the shout-out, Jenny! I actually didn’t understand/know about the "share" feature until you requested to share with me several months ago. Now I look forward to seeing what you share each day! It really is a great feature for reading interesting posts that I wouldn’t otherwise find.

  2. Megan:

    I actually just found this blog through a friends Google Reader share!
