    Hi PurpleMoon,

    I never meant to be gone this long, but work and trials have kept me pretty busy here lately. It was like spring when I saw your show of love. Thank you. I never wanted to be go so long, but it's nice to know that someone noticed. :x:

    I see Destee has enhanced an already beautiful place. I really like those smilies. They are beautiful and very expressive.
    So how has things be going with my "deep" thinker. I hope you are still writing those beautiful poems.

    Holla at a sister! :spin:

    I could only pray in my heart that you were in the best of health. I couldn't except anything other than you were just busy. I watched and waited as patiently as I could to verify that that was indeed the case. And here you are sounding strong and vibriant! Such a blessing to have your presence here again! :grouphug:

    Many have silently missed you as I did! Yes, Sister Destee have been nurturing and expanding the forum like a wild seed. She has been on a mission:weights: and all can play and enjoy the changes she has made.

    As for me, I've been gradually making some changes in myself. All I pray to be for the better. Haven't been writing much poetry. Just a sprinkle here and there. I look forward to reading you once again as well! Your Strength, Faith, and Determination is an honor to have around. :great:

    :wb: Home Sister!!!!!!!!!!!

    PurpleMoons And QueenSwana,

    You two are wonderful. Thank you for the show of love. Even as I type now, I moved by much emotion. As you know, we all go through and experience things. And now I am experiencing something that no mother or father wants to ever experience. Moreover, I came pretty close to losing my life for 48 hours. The doctors never found out what was causing the severe pain on the right side of my chest. I could barely breathe for 2 days and every breath was very painful and short. This proved to be a spiritual battle in and of itself. Thus, the reason the doctors could not locate it's cause even with all the tests. Finally, it was the instructions that the Lord gave me that saved me. It was weird, but effective. The attack happened suddenly while I was at Walmart. I'm telling you now that I would rather be in the last phase of labor in having a child than to be in that kind of pain again.

    Please know that I love my family here. Yall mean very much to me. And though I am not consistently here like I use to be, it is certainly NOT because I don't want to be. :kiss1:

    Life has just been a bumpy :car: here of late and it's going to be a while before it's over. But rest assured I will be dropping in from time to time.

    Love Joyce

    I'm sorry to hear about that sudden attack sister! I believe that you will pull through this while landing on your feet. The creator is wonderful and your faith is fearless. I will keep you in my heart and prayers! Stay as strong as you can sis! There will be peace after the storm! :grouphug: :heart:

    Your absence has been noticed by many Joyce! I was unaware of your health problems, but I am glad you are doing better. May the Lord continue to keep you in good health, and I await your return full time to these boards.

    I've missed you as well sister


    Matthew 9:20-22

    20Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. 21She said to herself, "If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed."
    22Jesus turned and saw her. "Take heart, daughter," he said, "your faith has healed you." And the woman was healed from that moment.

    We may not have everything but still we're abundently blessed. God has plans for you sister. Continues to be a witness and prayer warrior for Christ.

    Love & Peace

    Radical Faith

    P.S. I'll pray for you and you pray for me.

Who will dwell in your Kosesh - holy Har ''mountain '' He that walks Tawmeem ''' Complete '' and does as a Zodoqite '' with righteousness , and speaks the Ehmeth '' Truth '' in his heart , He that does not spy with his tongue , nor fashions any disagreeable acts against his friend , nor lifts up a disgrace against those who are close to him . In whose eyes a Mawas '' Contemned '' person is Bawzaw '' Despised '' ; but he honors those that fear A Yahuwa . He that Shawbah ''Swears '' to his own disagreeableness , and does not change .

    :hi: Yes, I am doing much better healthwise. :thinking: Though the doctors never could figure out was going on exactly, the Great Physician took care of business as usual. :x: Once I deal with these other two trials completely, I will be back full time. Thanks for your show of love, my brotha.
