For Me

Hello, Dear Ones.
This will be a little bit different of a post for me so bear with me.

I try to love everyone. I'm a happy person and I choose to wake up each day and choose joy for my journey. I'm not perfect and I have ups and downs, heartaches and troubles like everyone else.
I love my family, my home, my heritage. I love to blog and I love the friendships that have developed through this wonderful place called Blogland.

Recently I had put up a post, some of you read it, about celebrating my heritage and the pride I had for my husband and the event we attended. 

That post offended one of you who commented quite rudely, anonymously, of course.
I would never do anything intentionally to hurt or upset you and I want you to know that.
So I deleted that post.
I am not a mean spirited person. I don't like confrontation. I'm a peacemaker. I am a Christian.

I have been on a blog break but this was not the reason for that and I thank those of you who read my post and contacted me with your love and support. 
 During this time though I have prayed about writing this post. I've not come to an earth shattering conclusion but I feel God has laid this simple truth on my heart to share with you...
If you visit someone's post and don't like the content or are offended because you don't agree, just move on. Why oh why would you say bitter things and then hide behind Anonomous?
If you really have a problem why wouldn't you email the person and discuss it privately.
We all have different believes, we are not the same, but we can still love each other and enjoy each others talents and gifts. 
That's what I choose to do. I will not say nasty things to you because I care about you and your feelings. I'm not a wimp and really don't wear my feelings on my sleeves but I feel we should  be considerate of each other and the comments we leave.

After all, our blogs are where we live in Blogland and we should never be mean or rude when visiting someone else's home.

Now, I move on...

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

People Need The Lord

Everyday they pass me by,
I can see it in their eye.
Empty people filled with care,
Headed who knows where?
On they go through private pain,
Living fear to fear.
Laughter hides their silent cries,
Only Jesus hears.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize --people need the Lord?
We are called to take His light
To a world where wrong seems right.
What would be too great a cost
For sharing life with one who's lost?
Through His love our hearts can feel
All the grief they bear.
They must hear the words of life
Only we can share.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize that we must give our lives,
For people need the Lord.
People need the Lord.
