I Chronicles 29:11 "Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all."

Google Schmoogle

Have you ever Googled your own name just to see what would come up? I did that today. I did it first with my maiden name. There are at least three other women on the 'net with my SAME NAME.


One of the results that came up mentioned "Julie ____________ in front of the White House". Now, my freshman year of high school we took a band trip to Washington D.C. I know my friends took my picture in front of the White House, but I thought surely they didn't post one of me without my permission. So I brought up the link and guess what!

It wasn't me.

And I was a little disappointed, although I can't explain why.

The other mentions of women with my SAME NAME were a tennis champion (HA! That is definitely NOT me. I only run after the kids- not after a ball on purpose outside in the sun), a reporter in a newspaper in Washington, (Also not me although much more believable) and an obituary. (Clearly I am not dead.) Remember?

And it was fun for a minute to think "What if those were about me?" They would definitely be different than what my life has been like. Especially the dead one.

But then I thought about the way my life has turned out. I must say I much prefer what has really happened to me; the course of my life, my family, the things God has put before me that make me, well, ME.

And I have to say that even though the other Julie was smiling in the picture posted of her, she couldn't possibly be happier than me.

Or I.

Either one of us.


  • Brenda

    There is a band with my names Brenda & _________ (last name). That's about as famous as I get.
    Great, now I googled images and there are tons of people with my name. I also saw a gravestone for a baby that lived one day and she had my entire name (middle name too).

    Thanks for the depressing start to my day!

  • WendyMom

    Ok, so I not only googled myself, but my husband---

    And apparently, I either some sort of PHD gaining brainiac in astrophysics- or I'm dead; and I'm married to a rock star from Germany!

    Pretty freaky, I know! What fun to be had...

    Actually, my husband's real name did come up on the second page of searches, in relation to his numerous patents- so I guess either way he's more famous than I am! What a trip...Thanks for the fun!
