When I stand before God at the end of my time, I hope I have nothing creative left and I can say, "I used everything you gave me" Erma Bombeck. (I have this hanging in my scrapbook room. I'm off on some of the words but I'm at work and don't have it written down here. But you get the general meaning. I also replace the word creative with a lot of different words.....I love this quote.
Have a blessed and great day. Our prayers are with you.

The Lord doesn't give us anything that he knows we can't handle. I hold tight to this knowledge through my toughest time.

I don't know who this is by, but it always makes me feel better when I am feeling like I don't amount to much

Don't worry if your job is small and the rewards are few...
Remember that they mighty Oak was once a nut like you.

(that may not be the exact working...I don't have it in front of me, but it still makes me smile)


"Our lifes are not determined by what happens to us but how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It´s a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results." Looking forward to see what more of Gods beauty will come out from within you, Melissa, when you continue to create. Rejoice!!! You are in my thoughts and in my prayers./ Maria in Sweden

'If God Brough You To It, Then He'll Also Get You Through It':) He'll also get u through it Melissa:)


One of my favourite quotes is: "Where love reigns, the impossible may be attained..."
I hope this will make you go further in life.

This has been a great encouragement to me.
"What would have become of me had I not believed that I would see the Lord's goodness in the land of the living! Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord." Ps 27:13,14


One of my favourites...

Fall down even times, get up eight.

A Japanese proverb.

Sending hugs to help with the getting up!


Oops, I'm a bad typist.

Fall down SEVEN times, get up eight!

Sindy Shepard

Some days, doing "the best we can" may still fall short
of what we would like to be able to do, but life isn't perfect on any front and doing what we can with what
we have is the most we should expect of ourselves or anyone else.

This is one of my most favorite sayings it is from Mr. Rogers

My thoughts are with you.


What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine. - Anthony J. D'Angelo

Thinking of you!


I love this quote.. it makes me feel like I can do anything. You are looking great, hope you are feeling better every day!!

Nothing is impossible; there are ways that lead to everything,
and if we had sufficient will we should always have sufficient means.
It is often merely for an excuse that we say things are impossible.
--de La Rochefoucauld

"Lord help me to remember that nothing can happen today that you and I together can't handle." This has gotten me through so tough times. I pray all will go well!!!


Darling Melissa, did you know that you are such a shining inspiration for us all? Your beautiful face says it all! Sharing your journey is so brave of you...and I gotta say that reading some of the stories other brave girls have written on your blog has literally set the tears lose! One poem that I have always loved and which comes to mind now is "footprints in the sand" known the world over for inspiring faith!

Good luck for friday Melissa, wear your best outfit, your biggest smile, charge your camera and feel "free"...we'll be thinking about you! bx


Mine is...."God never gives you more than you can handle." It's been something I fall back on many times in dealing with life issues. Glad to hear that everything is going well for you!

Hugs to you from me.


I have the following quote framed and sitting on my nightstand so I see it every morning when I wake up and every night before I go to bed:

"Hope is believing in the goodness of things to come."

Here's to hope!


Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
