New Years Contest!

So with a New Year dawning, and with us being newly married. We thought we'd take a


from all of you, for a NEW look, and a NEW name to this our blog!!:)

You see...we need your help! We've decided that since this blog now entails the both of us, we need a merged name and look! (smile)

Thus, we're calling on you! The only guidelines are this--

1. It must refer to both of us in the title/name, or have the Wissmann name in it!

2. It must have something to do with aviation/flying in the name of the blog as well!

3. Have us out...and then be watching for the NEW face of Josiah and Abi, on this NEW blog!!

Who knows--your creative name--just might be our NEW blog name! Go ALL out! *grin*

Hi Abi, :)
I love your blog! My name is Melissa, and i live in Australia. I regularly visit Bethany's blog, and came across you guys there. You two are so sweet, and such a cute couple! I pray the Lord blesses you immensly, and that the new year ahead for both of you will be so very special as you journey through your married life together. :)
I would love to get to know you better too! So feel free to drop by and say hi to me whenever you can. :) I will be following your blog, and i really look forward to the new blog you come up with! :) Hehe
Hmmmm.... As for names, Im not too great at making names up, But i did think about it for a little bit. So far, i can think of is: "Wissmanns take wing, on a flight called life....." pretty lame i know.. but hey, at least its something!> LOL I thought this quote was nice. :)

"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return." -- Leonardo da Vinci

Gotta go. Sorry i wasnt much help. : ) I am sure you can think of something.


Melissa Searle said...

Actually, change the "A" to "The"
So "Wismanns take wing, on the flight called life..." or something like that. Haha

Hi! Happy New Year I found your blog by blog-hopping in order to spread the news about a wonderful film that has just been released by the Burns Family Studios. The movie is a powerful christian story, and extremely professional! Find a way to get and watch it!!! I was an extra in it.

ash said...

Hey guys! All I could think of was
Eagle's Wings or Wings as Eagles, but couldn't think of a good way to put your name in it too. Looking forward to the new look and name!

Happy New Year to you both!!

Josiah and Abi,
I think you have a variety of suggestions, and I've been thinking about it allot here. I have some good ideas, but before I post them for the world to see, I was wondering if you are offering a prize for the winning suggestion? Thank you in advance for your prompt reply.

Anonymous said...

I agree with the previous poster. Before I leave any suggestions, I want to know if there is a prize!!

Mrs. Sanders said...

Wait a minute here, I already gave my suggestion. Does that mean I don't qualify for the prize?

Wow! This has to be a record numer of comments on this blog!

I like the eagle ideas. Maybe something like, Soaring as Eagles?! But that's not very specific...

Looks like you have lots of ideas to choose from. God bless you both! I can tell by your pix that you're a sweet couple.

Phil T. said...

"Heads in the Clouds" is my suggestion.

If I win, please let me know!

now THAT has a nice ring to it!

Jenny H. said...

What clever idea, thank you for asking for suggestions. I love giving my opinion!!

Flying-4-Him is all I can think of right now, but you have my wheels turning, so I'll probably be back!

You know I'm really glad I checked your blog today, because I haven't been here for awhile, and I LOVE competitions and contests of any sort, especially online. Some people say I don't know when to stop!

Like the time I walked into Walmart and there was a coloring contest, even though I'm 46 years old, I couldn't resist! I picked up six papers.

Or the time when I went to the grocery store and they had a "leave your reciept for a drawing" contest, and I checked out each item individually so I could leave more reciepts.

So you can imagine my excitement upon reading about your contest! Being competitive is a good thing in my opinion. I mean, look at our society; thats what drives the free market (which is why I don't like Obama!!) I'm really scared about him getting inagurated on Jan. 20th; I think I'm going to wear black. But that's okay 'cuz black is really my color.

Enough ramblings, it was really nice to find your blog today! It's so refreshing in today's society to know that there are people out there like you!

Cheryl P. Evans said...

Oh wait a minute, I forgot to leave my ideas! LOL!!! How can you win a contest if you don't participate? I'm so absent minded these days!!

Twitterpated and Taking Off!
Forever Flying for the Father!
Watch Josiah and his Bride go!
Josiah's Cockpit, Abi's Airstrip!
(cuz' you've always got to have a good place to land!)

That's all I can think of for now. Please pick me!!

example..."Wissman's 10:30am"
another...special time, i.e. engagment time or date...wedd date or between "just you two" special time or date! "Wissman's...????"

Wissjoabimann Flight #L.O.V.E.

(I know that one was stupid, but... :)

Wissmann Airlines

'n that's all I can think of! Maybe I'll think of something else before you end the contest! :) When is it ending, anyway? Do you have an official date, or?? Because I could hit my Dad up in the next day or two and he could probably think of something awesome. He's just so that way! :)

Wow, I have never seen so many comments on this blog!! Guess you got a lot of lurkers! Can't wait to see the new look!!!

A naughty commenter said...

My vote is Twitterpated, and Taking Off! That is so you Josiah, and Abe! Airheads is kinda mean, but it's also about what you were like when courting, and engaged!=) I guess you could put it if you put the title as Twitterpated, and taking off, and I might just might still check your blog!=) Love you two, and hope to see you Sunday!

How about "Jet-setters for Jesus?"

How Bout "Fly and Pray with J & A, Hey, hey, hey", we thought it had a nice ring to it, but actually we like "Josiah and Abi's Cockpit".

We enjoy your blog!!

God bless you both and your family to come :). You're a testimony of what the Lord can do with lives surrendered to Him.
