love and heretics

It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness


It appears that continuing circumstance may leave me without the use of internet very presently.
I hope when all gets sorted I will be able to catch up on all the posts I am beginning to cherish here in blog world. I will miss the interactions here and the amazing insights I enjoy from so many.
Until then, keep on writing, save me some coffee and hugs!
kind regards,



  1. You will be missed

    • Thanks mak. πŸ™‚
      I was struggling with a little pity party a bit back. I am doing all i can to keep above the water and yet it rises. But then, even though we are struggling….I compare what i have…
      to those who will die today (approximately 15 people die every minute from starvation.)
      to a mother who will attempt to feed her child the last nutrition she has in her body and they both will not make it….
      and I give myself a ::smack::
      Going without some things we are accustomed to, for awhile…
      is absolutely nothing in comparison eh?
      I have so much to be thankful for even in the midst of it.
      And I am thankful I had the privilege of running into so many lovely people here. You will be missed too, dear Mak. πŸ™‚

      • It has been a great privilege to make your acquaintance. Your personal stories have been very inspiring and your willingness to share them even the more great.
        It is, I think, one of the Greek sages who said, content is the wealth of nature. Many people live their lives without being aware there is so much to be grateful for.
        I hope I will be hearing from you again soon. You still have my email.

        • You will have to let me know who that was Mak. That is a lovely way to look at it.
          I remember reading it from Paul… πŸ˜‰ (philippians 4)
          “4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all [d]comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. God’s Provisions
          But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at last you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lacked opportunity. Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 12 I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Nevertheless, you have done well to share with me in my affliction.”

          It is funny…and i know many atheist would disapprove,
          but there are certain things I have found in the bible that have been good parts of my life. This lesson of learning to be content was one,
          “whatever you do work at it with all your heart” was another.

  2. If it comes to pass I’m sure our orbits will remain in sync, even though something might be briefly obscuring our line of sight.

  3. Ah John. ::sigh:: you are such a poet my friend.
    Wordpress has brought me so much, I am every thankful to have been allowed to make your acquaintance. I have learned so much from you, AND….
    then there is your impeccable wit and rousing sense of humor…
    I think you qualify as one of my “nonnegotiables” in life. πŸ˜€
    (That is what we call things our clients (where I work) must not be separated from) πŸ˜‰

    *edited to change are to our ::headdesk:: me an my nemesis homophones

  4. Oh, Holly I’m really sad to hear this! Coffee and hugs will be waiting whenever you find the time or the opportunity to be online. And I’ll miss your posts, both because of their content and because there’s nobody quite like you! 😦

    • Thanks Lively! I have missed you guys! I’ll take that cup of coffee now… ((((hugs)))) πŸ™‚

      • It’s good to hear from you, Holly! I hope you and your family are well and enjoy the coffee! πŸ™‚
