I have a ton of emails that I was trying to get through, but it is another one of those days. My migraine is keeping me from concentrating on them. I think it's nap time. If you emailed me in the last 4 days I will get back to you when this is gone.
Be well, Dear Sister. I pray the Lord will settle His SHALOM upon your head, anointing you with frankincense.
Bummer. I hope you feel better quick.
Hope you feel better soon. I have been praying for you.
Even though I'm not feeling so hot at the moment. I had to share a couple of things that cheered me up today.

Cards of Love  (E)
Do you want to send someone a physical greeting, get well or sympathy card?

Giving to others our love can make someone's day and today was my day.

Cards of Love and Valentine's gifts

I received a get well card from Soldier_Mike šŸŽŗ Thank you so much dear brother. Fable says thank you for including her as well.
I want to say thank you for the journal and pen set and the extras from my Secret Valentine whomever you may be. It was a lovely surprise and it will be used alot. ā¤

If you haven't checked out "Cards of Love Drop-in it might be something that you want to participate in as well. Put a little love in someone's life. šŸ’—ā¤šŸ’—

"March PROMPT"

What would this world be like without God intervening in our lives?

His love is the Greatest love ever. Too bad that Jesus had to die for us to be saved. If we could have been good to start with. Makes you wonder what life would be like if Adam and Eve had not eaten that apple to start with. It also makes you think what would life be like if Jesus had not died for us. Would we have had to continue the sacrifices of animals to cleanse our souls?

Your prompt is What would your life be like if there was no God intervening in your life and chaos was about you? Now, this is SHOW vs TELL. Show me with words! If you wish you can add scripture to it.

Here are your prompt words GOD/JESUS, CHAOS, TURMOIL, SACRIFICE/SACRIFICES, SAVE/SAVED highlight it in {GRAPE} for these beautiful old eyes of mine... lol In addition if you use a verse highlight it as well in {GRAPE}. The person or persons that do both will get an extra gift.

Please BOLD and COLOR IT in GRAPE so it stands out for my eyes, the rest in BLACK... LOL, It is much easier for me. Thank you *Heart*

Please NO more than 20 lines and make sure you read all the RULES, SORRY to repeat but sometimes you have to. I wouldn't want you to disqualify yourself. Rule # 9. Please add word count, line count, the verse used, and the prompt to the BOTTOM of your page.

I don't know if I want to even imagine a World without God. Yikes! Lol This is a big challenge, and only 20 lines. LolšŸ˜‚ I am going to have to think really hard on this one! šŸ˜‰

Here is our ANGUS Update!

I spoke to Stevie, Angus's sister today. There has been no change to report. The insurance hasn't replied to her, so I gave her a number for an attorney to get the ball rolling faster for them. Sometimes they can jump more hoops than we can because they deal with it more on a daily basis.

She wants me to tell everyone, Thank you for the prayers they are much appreciated and needed. He is still having memory problems. He can remember something then later he doesn't.

Oh, she also says to thank everyone for the cards and letters, please keep them coming. She hasn't been able to go and see him for a while now. Due to the weather in Texas that hit a few weeks ago and covid of course has played a part in it. She has been calling him and talking to him on the phone.

The family appreciates the love that we show him. Please, let's keep them cards coming to him and remind him of the things you used to talk about. Anything that can help with his recovery.

Hugzzzz and love,
OH THANKS for posting an update! Can I have an address to send a card to please? Thanks again, nice to be in the loop
Could you please let me know the address so I can share it with "The Snail Mail Group? We'd love to send him some mail.

Hope you have a fabulous March peeps!
I needed to post a couple of things here then I'm going to go lay back down. If you have emailed me or replied to my post these past few days I will answer them when I am feeling better. Please, don't think I'm ignoring you by any means.

I am in a lot of pain and it is hard to sit up for any period of time. So, I will be posting here and there when I am up to sitting for a few minutes. It is hard to do anything around the house as well. I'm glad that Fable is a very loving dog. She rewards me with so much love as I do her.

I can't wait until I can find a house with a fenced yard so she can run around in circles as much as she wants. *Laugh*

Here is the post I need to give to those who wanted to enter
