Please Check Out My New Blog – I Don’t Post Here Anymore!

My lovely daughter (on the left) and me (with the gaping mouth) in the El Malpais badlands near Grants, New Mexico, on February 22, 2016. We had an awesome time. I miss my baby girl! My daughter's baby girl, my 24-year-old granddaughter, just got engaged! That's right, I am old. I love how my daughter's camera smoothes out my wrinkles!

I haven’t been here in a while, because I logged out of this WordPress account and started a whole new WordPress account with a new Gravatar and a new blog.

The reason I went to all that bother is because I was having technical difficulties on this site and could not find a solution. Since January, none of the comments I posted on anyone’s blog from this account would generate a notification. This meant that my blogger friends never knew when I left a comment, unless they happened to click on their post and see my comment there.

Without people being notified that you have commented in a discussion, the communication effectively stops. Being able to talk with my fellow bloggers is the best part of blogging!

I plan to leave this blog up, unless I hear from WordPress that they prefer I not continue to have two accounts. If that happens, I will take this blog down. In any case, I plan to reblog my posts from here to my new blog, when I am not so pressed for time.

I miss all my wonderful followers and hope everyone will join me at my new site:

A Blog About Healing From PTSD

I have disabled comments here, because I am now going to log back into my new account and going back and forth is a pain. Comments are enabled on my new blog and — YAY! — the comments I post from my new account are generating notifications with no problems.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope to see you soon at my new blog!

This is True Love

Love is gentle and kind.

Love is gentle and kind.

 

As a 60-something great-grandma, I am often struck by how different love seems to me now, compared to when I was a younger woman. When I was young, I equated love to red hot fiery passion. And I was badly burned as a result.

Today, this is what true love means to me:

Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant. It is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; it does not take into account a wrong endured. It does not rejoice at injustice, but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail]. Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening]. Love never fails [it never fades nor ends]…. ~1 Corinthians 13:4-8a, Amplified Bible

And now there remain: faith [abiding trust in God and His promises], hope [confident expectation of eternal salvation], love [unselfish love for others growing out of God’s love for me], these three [the choicest graces]; but the greatest of these is love. ~1 Corinthians 13:13, Amplified Bible
