  1. Hi Alley!  I was just wondering if Rebecca had ever figured out why I was unable to edit that last poem I had posted -- The "Master" Piece?

      I'm sorry @Writer4Jesus. I am not one of the moderators, and do not have access to those. The best way I know, is to ask directly in the support and suggestions. I hope that helps. Best of luck! 

  2. Ok, thank you for the suggestion. I did what you said to do and it worked! Yay! So my first revision is listed in with the comment section of the Poem's post. Have you heard any updates as to what's going on with the problem I've been having?
  3. Hi Rebecca. Sorry for the late note, but was wondering what you meant by your last comment: "posting any changes further down the topic."?
  4. I posted it one day and went to revise it a few days after that and have not been able to get in ever since.🤔 I even tried posting it as a new post. I couldn't get into it at all to even do that.🙁. It's almost as if my account is locked from being able to post anything. That's the only thing that I can think of. Not saying that's what happened, but I'm just saying that's an observation.
  5. I did do that. I don't get what's going on.😒. I've tried several times.
  6. I recently posted a new poem, "The Master Piece", in the Critiquing Room. I've been several times to revise the poem, but to no avail! Are there some revisions going on in the website that would help me understand why this is happening?
  7. I was thinking about using for a poem title, using the theme "thankful" for it. I was thinking about the verse of an old song, called "Count Your Blessings, name them one by one. . .
  8. When using the phrase "Count Your Blessings" as a Title, does it have to be in quotes? I was asking , because it actually comes from the song, "Count Your Blessings."
  9. Just pray for me, please. I feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders right now. My husband is threatening to leave if I don't stop "bossing" him around. I feel he's suffering from Venous Dementia, but I can't straight up tell him that. I was thinking earlier that , that's what happens when I marry "unequally yoked". Look at the wonderful grandson and daughter I have. Look at the pros and cons. I don't know what to think right now. I'm just trying to be in an attitude of prayer.
  10. We live in a right now society today. What I mean by that is, we have no patience. No waiting for practically anything! Why do you think they came up with fast food restaurants (They are not always that fast either!)? The “hurry up and wait” is one of our least favorite cliches, too. As followers of Christ, we are striving, daily, to learn how to wait upon the Lord. What it boils down to is simply a matter of trust. We get in such a hurry to do what we see needs to be done, that we just jump in and try to solve it ourselves. It may seem like a good solution, until later on. It is then, that the “good feeling,” we may have had at first, soon dissipates, once we realize we weren't so wise. We soon, discover that the situation would have looked a lot better, had we put all our trust in the Lord. When we do pray, we often times find ourselves fitting into one or all of these categories: 1. We ask God for Divine Intervention, in hopes that the answer will come faster. 2. We ask God to give us wisdom in making decisions. 3. We often times ask for help in a particular situation, but we are somewhat unsure that God will resolve the issue on time and to our satisfaction. 4. We become, what society would probably refer to as, an Indian Giver or what is, in my opinion, a Give and Take request. We give it to the Lord, but the minute we have any doubts, in how the request is being handled, we quickly take it back. 5. And lastly, we give our request to the Lord and often times feel like we need to help Him in resolving the matter. All of the above ways in which we pray, are all good and successful to us, but when we make these requests, we must leave it in His hands. He is unable to work in that situation if it is not totally surrendered to Him! Our faith is strengthened, as we are waiting on Him. We begin to rise above our circumstances, because we have developed a stronger level of trust, in the Lord. The Holy Spirit begins to help us see things through His eyes. Several things, in our lives start to change, when this happens. It never happens the way we expect it to and He always begins on the inside (our spirit) and works His way to the outside (we become a light to others around us). Once this has been established, in us, then we can move forward. But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings Like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 NKJV
  11. Well, William, I had typed in alot of stuff that I got off a particular Web site regarding some Natural Remedies plus it listed Trigger Foods to Avoid.  All the typing I did to list it, for some reason did not get posted.  So, just an fyi:  I searched in Google:  (without the quotes of course) "home remedies for add"--this is what I picked for more info to give to you:  5 Natural Remedies for ADHD + Trigger Foods to Avoid - Dr. Axe.

    Hope it helps.?

  12. Thank you. I usually do include the Bible reference, but I just forgot.?
  13. God never skips a beat, when we allow Him to provide for us! His love for us is unending! Our minds are not able to comprehend how much He loves us! When I tend to feel like Peter (walking on the water with Jesus) and reach a point, when I feel like I'm sinking, my Lord & Savior is always reaching out to rescue me! He so desires to rescue us all from our situation{s} we may be in! Sometimes, we tend to feel that we're not important. God tells us in His Word, that we are very important to Him! Luke 12:7 (NLT) And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows. Wow!
  14. What an awesome God we serve! One of the things the Holy Spirit reminded me of this morning, is how merciful and gracious our Heavenly Father always is. None of us are perfect. Romans 3:23 tells us "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God;" Paul is also inspired to tell us in the next verse, "Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus." Wow! What kind of father does that? Our earthly father's will never be (no offense dads) able to show the same characteristics like our Heavenly Father does. I, personally, don't know of anyone else as forgiving as He is! No matter how bad I've been in the past, present, or future. I know He will always love me! (This is only part of what I was going to post on FB--where I post everything I've written. All critiquing is welcome! Thank you in advance ?)
