Hi Robin, You can write this one..... I just re-worded what you had put for the three-fold purpose of the third post that wasnt posted. Did that make sense?? Silly me. Just know you can write it. Actually, it was good for me to know others struggle with writing posts. I write and rewrite and delete and rearrange all the time. Ive found stopping and asking the Lord what Im supposed to convey most times helps bring some clarity. But other times it is a bit of a struggle to get what Im feeling or have experienced typed out. I usually just write like I would if I was having a conversation with a friend. The main reason I started to blog is my desire to write about Finding Hope and Joy after the death of my Kyle Matthew. I want to glorify Him and encourage others. If you get a minute, feel free to stop by my little space at Be blessed, Debbie G.
Your third post - each of the three purposes of that post hit the mark for me. I'd love for you to write a three part series on them. I'd like to hear more of this one because: I need to be encouraged to take time for my friends. I need to be reminded that God is at work through me when I take the time for others. And I need to find a balance of my time (that both me and hubby can live with) as I blog. [In]Courage has meant so much to me this year! I've been blessed, encouraged, reminded over and over of God's love for me, and been inspired by other's faith during difficult circumstances in their lives. All of these things have helped to bring healing to my broken heart after my son's death.
Southern Gal ~ I'll be praying for you to plan and follow through each day. To acomplish what needs to be done. I'll also pray for the Bausum family (I lost my son almost three years ago and can relate to their heartache). My prayer request is for wisdom and direction about a possible job change.

Actually, I was one of those who "just didn't get it". Than I started reading here at [in]courage and than finally started my own blog in January. I love blog land! And over the last seven months have connected with a few others. Not a "community" yet, but it's a start.

It took me a while to choose from all the beautiful designs. But with some help from hubby this is what we picked. Even after over 35 years our favorite place to be is "together".

I also would like to learn how to quilt. Thinking of trying to make a rag quilt from my son's shirts as a memory quilt. My son's best friend passed three months after he did. So it would be great to make one for his mom, too.

Today I needed this post. I too hate confrontation. I too needed to make a phone call. Nothing tragic or terrible, but I did need to speak the truth in love and perhaps disapoint my friend. So God used this post to help give me courage to make that phone call. He gave me the words to say. I will follow up with a card and hopefully after the disapointment fades our friendship will go on.

Hi Cate, I am so glad to see a new post.... but, sad that you won't be posting for a while. If I may say something.... I LOVE YOUR blog! This post is wonderful, funny, and sweet. I am fairly new to blog land and my favorite blogs are ones that are from the heart, funny and use everyday stuff to highlight a truth about the Lord and His word. And ones that make me feel like I'm having a conversation with the blogger. :) FYI- There are some great sites online and books if you need help with navigating your blog and blog land. I am a bit of a perfectionist myself so I read and reread my posts and actually go to an online dictionary to check my spelling and then edit and reedit .... Whew! It can be tiring can't it. But I do enjoy it! I really hope you will not give up. Remember why you started to blog.... and keep at it. I feel you have some good stuff to share. So, hope to see another post soon, but when you're ready. Love ya sweet friend, Debbie

This post creates an absolutely beautiful picture and reminder of His love for us. This is how I want to live the rest of my life --- dancing in the arms of Jesus. Thank you for putting it into words for me!
This is such an awesome post! "I only need what He has taught me: To hope in Him. To love Him and to love others. To trust that, regardless of circumstances, He has given me all I need in order to jump any hurdle life puts on my path." All I can say is "Amen!!" and thank you for sharing your life with us so openly... it's inspiring. To be honest this week I've wanted to take a turn sitting on the sidelines, but not after reading this... so, I'm brushing myself off and getting back in the race. Praying for you (my little way of running the race beside you) {{Hug}} ~Debbie G.

Wow - what a question to ponder first thing this morning.... I guess after my son died I realized that miracles don't always happen, even when you pray with all your heart. So I believe in a great and loving God who can perform miracles, but who in His wisdom doesn't always choose to. And for me the final miracle will be seeing Jesus face to face and seeing my son again someday.

It is years since I had to deal with the whole potty training issue. But this post still so touched my heart. I needed to be reminded of God's love and how He sees me and not the dirt I sometimes get covered in as I walk through this life. Thank you for reminding me that He loves messy & dirty ME!
