thought I’d do some motivational stuff here today




we all like our dramas, right? has anyone ever gotten a “feeling” the small voice telling you NOT to watch a drama? well I have today, and really a weird one. never had it tell me not to watch something before


Did you watch it?


no I didn’t, I took it off my list too.


that sounds so good!







I sure need this one


Now I’m curious, which drama was it? Let’s see if I, @mirjam_465, or anyone else already watched it,or plan on watching. :thinking:


yeah, I am not good enough…

Loneliness doesn’t come from being alone. It comes from feeling that nobody cares.

there is someone that needed this today, hey we do care,



You are enough, @frustratedwriter. I hope you have a blessed day today.


:heart_eyes: thank you!





find Psalms 27, read the last verse, that was for me today, now its your turn



then we can look up Isaiah 40 31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. the key is have Faith in God, all things will work out
