From My Heart

The temperature has become quite bitterly cold here.
So very cold that not only have they closed all of  the schools, but the banks,
many businesses and even our local post office has been closed.
 I don't remember a time when the mail didn't run due to weather,
 or any other reason for that matter.
Days like this just mean more hot tea and knitting for me,
 which is always good.
I have plenty of knitting that needs to be done.
 That was meant to be the main focus of my day today
 until I received a text from a close friend saying
 that she and her sister have both tried repeatedly
 to leave a comment on my blog and cannot do so.
Actually, I should backtrack here for a moment.
This is the second time someone close to me has told me this recently.
So, I checked all of my settings and tweaked a few here and there and still their
comments are not posting. I have no idea why this is happening!
Another thing I discovered while doing all of this however,
really bothered me and I feel I need to let everyone know in a post today.
I found so many comments in my spam
that needed approval before being published.
So very many lovely comments and compliments
 from so many different people 
that I never realized were there!
It was absolutely never my intention to
 not publish your comments
 or to ignore you in any way.
I love reading what everyone has to say and responding. 
I hope you receive the replies that I post right here on my blog...???
Also, I even had a few people ask me where I got the web design for my blog
 and whether it was free or if I had to purchase it.
 I hope those who want to know about this will eventually
 read this post because here's the answer...
I purchased it, along with some extra's, 
such as social media buttons, 
Just click that link and it will take you right to the site.
I used the same designer for everything I purchased and I was very happy.
This is a great place to go if you want something beautiful and professional
 without having to spend a huge fortune to get it.
I also had a question about whether I use Wordpress or BlogSpot.
I use BlogSpot. It's all I am familiar with.
I purchased my own domain a few years ago,
which is very simple to do.

There are literally no words to say that can express
 what it means to me that anyone
would be interested in reading and following my blog.
 This blesses me so much more than any one
of you can possibly know. 
 It's my heartfelt desire first and foremost, 
with every single word I put into a post that you all understand and feel
 that nothing in the world matters more to me than people... 
We all have real struggles in this thing called Life.
But I also believe in the Goodness of the Lord in the Land of the Living.
I believe there is Beauty all around us.
In our World and in other People.
That is the main focus in Life for me and here on my blog.
It is always my desire and goal to sow positive things
into your days and give something of myself to you,
whether it's in the form of a pattern,
a recipe or words of encouragement at a time
that only God knew you needed them.
If I have offended or made anyone feel slighted,
please know it was an accidental oversight.
I believe deeply in treating all people,
without exception,
with kindness and respect.
Be Blessed,

"Love and kindness are never wasted.
They always make a difference. 
They bless the one who receives them,
and they bless you, the giver."

  1. Gosh I hope the comments problems resolves itself. The comments left under the google plus platform unfortunately won't show up under this blogger one if that makes any sense. Not sure why your other comments disappeared. Strange. Wish I knew more but I'm not very "techy". :)
