Some Very Sad News


Dear Ones, I wanted to share with you about a former blogger who meant so much to so many of us passed away.

Dot Nipper who went by Picket and blogged at Picket's Place passed away August 8th and she was one of the old timers. So many of us started out on the Rate My Space about 13 or so years ago and that site was sponsored by HGTV. It finally shut down and lots of us started blogs. I have tried to put up a link to her old blog but a widget page comes up and says the site is not secure. Picket was a beautiful Christian lady who lived in Alabama and was such a wonderful story teller. How she loved her family and she loved the Lord and ministered to so many of us with each blog post. Of course she decorated her home beautifully. Her beloved husband passed away around 2016 and she was never the same. Please pray for her family, she had five children.













Above on the left is Picket and her beloved Bill and then this is the picture on the right that I found on her Facebook page. I wouldn't have recognized her but she looks so beautiful. She truly was beautiful inside and out.

I know many of you would like to know this. We will always love you, Picket.

If you can't get to her blog I'll just leave you with a few snaps of her home that I have pinned over the years.







 Blessing to all my sweeties,
Shelia :(

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

 "Friends"

Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you
I can't believe the hopes He's granted
Means a chapter of your life is through

But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

And with the faith and love God's given
Springing from the hope we know
We will pray the joy you live in
Is the strength that now you show

We'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

To live as friends

Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

No a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

  12. I did not know this blog, but she sounded like one I would have followed for sure. It is like losing a close friend when this happens. When Pat from Back Porch Musings died a few years ago, for me it was like losing a good friend. I still miss visiting with her.
    Take care

  14. Sad news, indeed! Sad for her family and those who loved her but not for her. Imagine the joy she is experiencing in Heaven. I was able to go right to her blog with no problem. My computer told me it was a safe site. Thank you for sharing this blogger who touched the lives of many. It's always sad when we lose a friend we've come to know and love through blogging.

  15. Shelia, I am so glad you posted about Pickets passing. I followed her for years and then kind of lost track of her. She appears too young to die!. She was a very talented lady, I really enjoyed her blog. It is sad when we lose our blogging friends. Blogging is so much more than posting pictures and writing a post, it is the connections of friendships that develop in a way that can't be described. I think that the Lord has a hand in bringing people together. Again thank you for sharing this sad news.
