Thank You and End of a Era

First of all thank you to everyone who commented on my Valentine craft. I had fun making them.
So it's been a week now that Aunt Jemima has become The Pearl Milling company. That sweet face I loved childhood has now been replaced by in my opinion an ugly building. They are removing Uncle Ben's face and changing the name to Ben's Original and I hear they are removing the black chef's face from Cream of Wheat cereal. So companies really think that removing people of color from labels is going to stop racism? 
I think not. There will always be racism against black people, racism against white people, racism against Hispanic and racism against all the other cultures God created. And it will continue until Jesus returns. Oh what a glorious day that will be!

I ❤ Valentines

 I thought I would give the hearts Roxy at  Living From Glory to Glory made on a recent post. I did mine just slightly different.  I made mine by hand because I'm still not good at sewing around curves. You can find the tutorial on Roy's blog.

 That's the word I'm going to focus on this year. I was hesitant to post this because I've seen other bloggers with positive  words like  serendipity, hope, faith, etc and then there's mine. Eliminate. Elimination.

But I have come to the realization  there are things I really need to eliminate and the first two things that immediately come to mind are :

1. The need to control people who leave in my opinion stupid comments on my friend's blog or other blogs I follow.

2. Eliminate unkind words from my vocabulary which brings me back to Number 1.

My friend, who is a believer in our Lord Jesus,will write sometimes deep thoughts and what she's experiencing at the moment. She has some significant health issues which she  shares about frequently . There are those people who won't take the time to read what she actually wrote and will respond with something like "Beautiful post!"  or a smiley emoji. That makes me  want to respond to the commenter and ask if they even read what the girl wrote before writing their comment. I haven't and won't since I want to respect her blog and not cause arguments. I did however confront a woman on her own blog about her thoughtless comment after my friend had shared some significant physical pain she was experiencing. She came back and apologize to my friend for not reading her post carefully.  

I have noticed that my friend does have followers where English may not be their first language so Google translate might do a poor job of translating to their native language 

My friend is a  very kind hearted young lady and she doesn't let the thoughtless ( I replaced " stupid" with  "thoughtless") get to her. God has definitely gifted her with much grace and patience to deal with people.

It's going to be interesting to see how "Eliminate" will play out this year. I know the Lord is pruning me and "cutting of the bad branches" in my life ( See Luke 15:1-5). I suspect it's not going to be easy. But I'm looking forward to seeing how God will work in my life and hopefully be an encouragement to others.
