So sad to say goodbye

Your reality is where you spend your time I guess, but it is also the quality of the time you keep in the spot where you are planted. I was part of a wonderful virtual community where there were no swearwords, no crass crude words or comments, no fighting, no bickering, in fact where you could say the name of Jesus, in fact of fact, encouraged to include Him in any conversation you were having. I felt the green grass beneath my feet and a warm breeze on my face any time I visited. My neighbors were interesting! Artists and crafts people of all kinds, paint, paper, fabric, yarn, beads, wood, soap, who were the real deal, who had to make art along with taking care of business, it was just in their blood. I was able to stop in in the middle of a hectic day, and take that coffee minute. It was the first online group that I ever joined, and it was a precious gift to me. It was nurturing and supportive, it helped me heal from a huge life crisis by just being there among other folks who were sharing their stories about their own life crisis and getting support and love instead of criticism and accusation. I can't imagine the time it took to run a safe family friendly group like that and maintain that quality of site and maintain a quality home and business life. So I understand that this is one more farewell in my life, but not a bitter one, this has left me all the better. I want to say thank you Amy, and I am praying for your continued blessing.

1 Timothy 1:14"And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus"
Numbers 6:24-26"The Lord bless you and keep you;the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."
1 Kings 8:56-61"Praise be to the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses. May the Lord our God be with us as he was with our fathers; may he never leave us nor forsake us. May he turn our hearts to him, to walk in all his ways and to keep the commands, decrees and regulations he gave our fathers. And may these words of mine, which I have prayed before the Lord, be near to the Lord our God day and night, that he may uphold the cause of his servant and the cause of his people Israel according to each day's need, so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God and that there is no other. But your hearts must be fully committed to the Lord our God, to live by his decrees and obey his commands, as at this time."
Psalm 121:7-8"The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore."
