Hello! Glad you're keeping this one open.
Deborah, the Cloistered Heart "way of life" is so much a part of me that I'm enormously grateful to be able to keep up. If there comes a time when I'm not able to write of it, I pray I will be quietly living it. God be praised!
Dear Nancy ~ I'm glad that you are not completely disappearing. I have enjoyed your posts at Breadbox Letters for quite some time now. They encourage and bless my heart.May you feel God's healing, loving presence surrounding and flowing through you.Love, hugs and prayer for you ~ FlowerLady
Thanks so much, Lorraine...it means a lot to me that you're here, and that you have provided lovely spaces of your own for us. How special to have living breathing pilgrims climbing right along with us across the pages of a blog, and across the seas!
Nancy, I look forward to your posts. They have so often kept my feet from slipping. I pray that you feel the God of love and compassion surrounding you with comfort. Without you I don't think I would have ever thought of living the "cloistered" life right here in the world. I can never thank you enough.Annieh
Thank you so very much for your prayer! Comfort - there are times lately when I am just so grateful for comfort. Thanks be to God.
I love this quote, Nancy. The going forward not always easy, but if God forgives us, we need to forgive ourselves~ that, along with His grace is the best way forward.
It can be hard to forgive ourselves, or at least it's hard for me. Without such self-forgiveness, I find I get snagged and have a hard time moving forward. May God provide grace!
