It is with great heaviness of heart and mind that the Moderators have to announce the passing of our owner of this community +Bill Kraski​​

As we struggle to comprehend the huge loss and the enormous hole he left we want you to know that the community will continue as always. We feel that would be as Bill would want it. In the next few days or so we would like for you to take a moment and post something about Bill that particularly touched your life. It would be a great comfort to all who knew him and loved him to see how much of an impact he had on others.

If we can be of any help at all or you just need to talk please feel free to do so. We are always here for you.

I'm hid with Christ,

What is the heart of the gospel? Why should we understand the intent behind the message? The heart of God is revealed in His salvation plan and this should have a profound impact on how we relate to the world around us. http://matthew515.com/the-heart-of-the-gospel/

I usually write a reflective post on Valentine's Day each year...This is the 1st one where I actually have a 'valentine'! However it's not 'that' type of post, as I do know what it's like to be single. Here's a snippet: "It's natural for someone to desire committed love from a spouse, but it shouldn't be for validation. Our value and worth should come from being a child of God through Jesus Christ."
Let me know your thoughts, love Mel x

How do you embrace brokenness? Is it even possible? Join me as I ponder this very simple but profoundly hard thing to do.

What do we base our lives on? What controls our thoughts, actions and circumstances? Is it the shifting sands of our circumstances or is it the One who is the rock of ages? http://matthew515.com/danger-ahead-too-much-sand-not-enough-rock/

Almost five years ago when my heart was broken and torn in two, God gave me a promise of restoration and new love from Him that was to come. I waited, even impatiently at times, even making mistakes at times, but I did wait while praying and praying! I came to a place of wondering if I could ever truly trust a man again as I trusted The Lord...But the wait is now over. Fear and distrust has been healed by my loving Father through one of His followers...Fear and distrust has been replaced with peace, joy and trust. Every good gift comes from The Father above who does not change or fail to keep His promises. This is my poem to Richard. Love Melanie.

My most recent post. A post from my heart which looks at God's heart for mercy, forgiveness, grace and reconciliation, and our appropriate response as ones who have experienced this great love first hand. Life is indeed difficult at times. We can feel so hurt and wronged by others who we think should know better...But The Lord has often reminded me through Isaiah 42, 'A bruised reed He will not break' and I therefore need to allow myself to be inconvenienced by true, costly love. I hope this post encourages you to continue loving others, in your love for Him. Let me know what you think :)
