Love Is...





Encouragement.







I was blown away with all the support and encouragement I received with respect to my earlier post this week. So I'm dedicating this Friday Love Is... to all you wonderful blogging friends--my encouragement cyber angels--without you guys, rebounding wouldn't have been near as easy.

Isn't it amazing that technology can allow us to encourage and love via cyber space? It is a blessing for sure.

Even though it can fail us, at times, too, like when viruses or worms can work their evil way through it into our computers. Like what happened to me. My laptop is still at the doctors, by the way. So I still don't know how much damage my laptop will be permanently inflicted with through this. But onward I go, with all your encouragement, I'm still getting word count in, and enjoying planning of a new story for NaNoWriMo. Life is good. Writing never stalled for me.

May you all be blessed with cyber angels of encouragement when you most need them, just as I have been this past week. Thank you all!


Surrendering to Him,

Eileen

I appreciate the sweet comments you've made at my blog, and you going the extra mile reading my quirky story over at Lorelei Signal, despite it not being your thing. :-) Now that's a cyber angel.

You know, I have found that God's used my fellow blogging friends to lend a word when it's most needed. Thanks for reminding me of this, b/c all too often I forget and don't write it down or value it deeply when it happens.

Nice, uplfiting post. I'm glad your spirits are up even with the computer problems, which can be so draining and time consuming. What discipline to keep on track with your writing.

I'm glad others have encouraged you, but you are also an encouragement to others.

A very wise friend told a group of people,"In order to have a friend, one has to be a friend."

You have been a friend to so many.

Like many things in life, technology can be a curse or blessing, depending on how folks choose to use it. The blogging community gives technology a good name. And you are a perfect example. Write on, Eileen.

Hi,

I discovered your blog while searching for freelance writers on the internet for a new project - a Faith Based Magazine. Would you be interested in submitting articles for consideration?

If so, I can be contacted via my email address. The articles would not be restricted to faith related issues.

Thanks.

Helen
