  1. 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. . .
  2. 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."
  3. 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.
  4. Hi everyone! I've heard that "Poor Man's Copyrighting" is a good thing to do. I did some research on the internet, when I was first starting out and it says that the first draft that you write is considered as your copyright as well. Has anyone used the "Poor Man's Copyrighting"? And how did it work for you? Is it really a legitimate thing to do to protect your work (will it stand up in court)? I'm open to any and all comments/suggestions at this time, please. Thank you in advance!
  5. Have a great time, Sarah! Praying for an enjoyable and safe trip! Look forward to seeing you back soon!
  6. As a Beta Reader, how exactly does that work? Such as, how long do you have to read the material, etc.
  7. I'm sort of new to this room. Would you please fill me on what a "Beta Reader" is?
  8. Thank you everyone for your kind words and continued support.? Just dealing with alot of stress. My husband goes for a CT Scan tomorrow morning. This very well planned out by the Dr. and I. We had to make him believe it was a much needed "follow-up", as otherwise he would not have agreed to it. I've been wondering all along that it's possible that he's been have "mini-strokes". Just had no way to prove it. Hopefully we'll get some answers tomorrow morning (although I know that we will have to wait a few days before we find out anything).
  9. Thank you everyone for all your prayers and thoughtful words! I really appreciate it. I went to the Women's Ministry Bible Study tonight and I feel much better! I did ask to be place on the church's prayer chain, as well and received many uplifting words from them, too! Thanks again!
  10. Hi, everyone! Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's out there! I wish I could be in a more cheerful mood, but unfortunately I'm not. I've been trying to press on with my writing, but sometimes I don't even feel like doing that. I was sooo depressed yesterday, that I went for a walk and didn't really feel like coming back. It's just my teenage (13) grandson and "not all there" husband and me. I feel so under-appreciated. Even today, talking with other ladies, at church, that were talking to each other about the restaurant they were going to eat at (they were mostly grandma's) and a friend that came by, as she was on her way to taking her daughter and son out to eat. What do I get to do? Come home, wash dishes, cook supper and finish hanging and folding up clothes (Yay)! I should be used to it by now, since my life is like this every year. Mainly because we never have the money or a car to do anything with. It was the same way, recently, when we "celebrated" our 34th wedding anniversary. We stayed home and I cooked as usual. Sorry for the venting, everyone, but I just feel so insignificant! What would they do without me? Ok, I'm done venting, now.
  11. Thank you everyone for your prayers! I really appreciate it. Please keep praying. I've noticed that certain things trigger my emotions. I 1st get angry and then I start crying, feeling hopeless and insignificant. I know the Lord loves me and all the negative thoughts are a lie. I feel so overwhelmed. I hardly have time for myself (quiet time, writing, my Bible Study, etc.). I do chalk up alot of it to Spiritual Warfare, but I feel it might be physically/emotionally originated. I don't know. I just feel so exhausted afterwards (physically and emotionally). So, anyway, keep me in your prayers. I don't know if I'm on the verge of having a nervous breakdown, or what. Thank you for all your prayers.? P.S. The pastor requested, almost a month ago, if I would share one of the poems I wrote. I haven't decided yet and I don't even know which one to share.
  12. Thank you, Lynn. I appreciate that word of confidence. I needed that. I guess I could be somewhat appreciative, since my cousin will be looking over about 20 poems the Lord gave me. He has told me that he will edit them for me, show them to their chaplain and if they're good enough, help me get them published (all at no cost to me). The poems will still be mine, but they will still have the rights to reprint them and distribute them to homeless shelters, prison ministry, etc.
  13. I'm doing better, now. Your prayers are always welcome, though. It's just been a rough week for me. God bless ya'll and I'm sure I'll talk to some of ya'll later.
