  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. 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
  12. 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.?

  13. Thank you. I usually do include the Bible reference, but I just forgot.?
