"my friend helped me FIND the lost blog..."

dear warriors,
my new blog vanished
from the screen of my computer.
in a second, gone. thrown out
by the complication of computers
that i am truly, mentally-challenged
by. my dear friend, debbie shea, will
try to find it. any one of my sons could
help me in a second. but every one of
my four sons is either doing papers for
classes or sleeping or driving to a
job.

so, i sit here at my computer,
lost and dismayed and sad.
take Jesus with you today.
remember to forgive. as i strive
to do the same. because forgiveness
is the essence of the Cross. there is
NO hope for any of us if we choose to
judge and hold onto our wounds.

I like you feel crazily inadequate in the world of computers. I wanted to send a comment on the September post about sending your book to the publishers but couldn't figure out how! (I am new to the world of blogging.) So, I will put it here. . . Yahoo! You go girl! Keep at it! I know God will use your writings, authenticate and real as they are to draw many to Himself. Thanks for being willing to lay down your life for your friends. You reflect your Master, King, Brother, Father, Counselor, Comforter, well.
P.S. A book that really encouraged my heart about how God uses the "desert-wilderness" seasons of life to form us more into his image, is "Anonymous" by Alicia Britt Chole. It was a drink of fresh water to me. Enjoy.

Ann - I just wanted to say that I have loved your writing for years. I got your first book when I was in high school and I read parts of it in my graduation speech. I'm now 52 and I still recommend it to people. Thank you for being such a blessing in my life.

Ann,
You remind me of a mature Audrey Hepburn. Seriously!

I'm looking forward to reading your new book. I'm also an empty-nester; my daughter is 26. She was just downsized for the third time in two years. Why did I ever think that once she was grown, I wouldn't worry about her anymore?

Then there's my 80-year-old father. He's starting to forget things. I must double check to be sure all his bills are paid.

I often feel pulled to pieces between the two of them.

Ran into huge computer problems about a month ago; virus and hacked email. Brought tears, fears, frustration,anger and I slipped into computer carnality. An ugly moment. My nephew was my knight in shining armor. I know VERY LITTLE about computers!!!!

Dorothy's comment: " You remind me of a mature Audrey Hepburn." Is a huge compliment I think!
