It worked wholesome and entertaining and I even came up with another one delightful! No comments about how my brain is connected to my bladder!
Okay, I promise. No brain / bladder comments! :mrgreen: (It'll be tough, though. :wink: )

Wholesome and entertaining are good words, but I had hoped to find something with a long e sound in the title word / words to tie-in with "e-books". Probably not essential, but I'd like to, if I can.

Delightful has possibilities. I may well be able to work with it, but, like "lovely / ies" it might be a bit limiting. i.e. books can be clean, yet related to a darker or heavier subject or theme, so not necessarily best described as "lovely" or "delightful".

I dunno... (obviously, lol) :mrgreen:

I do appreciate the feedback, though!
:thankssign

Doesn't seem to mater how much I rest, I stay exhausted. I think it might be a side effect of the heart med. So I have fibro, tachycardia (fast heartrate), insomnia all causing fatigue anyway and I think this med is my body's last straw. I'm really frustrated both because I can't get anything done when I'm thins tired, especially not any writing, and frustrated because it seems like every medication out there makes me too sick. How am I suppose to get better if everything makes me more sick?

I did make it to church this morning, though I burst into tears the minute a friend asked how I was. :roll: I always cry easily when I'm overly tired.

Anyway, sorry for whining. My brain does seem to be funtioning enough to make sense of Shelley's e-book reviews plan, finally. Sounds great! I might be able to send on an occational review, when I'm not too sick. I'll keep thinking of a good E- word. Maybe Excellent?

Kara, those lantern photos are awesome! But I am not understanding something. You say you Launched them. How does this work? What are they made of? Does'nt the fire go out out or ignite the lanterns?

Father of light and life, We thank You that You are present with Seema's mom we ask that You continue to make Your presence, peace and power known to her. Because You are sovereign and all powerful we ask that Your will be done for her. We want wholeness that we can see but more than that we want Your plan fulfilled in her life. Comfort those around her and help them see Your way in it all. Amen
Blessings, Kathleen

They are made of thin tissue-like paper. They work the same concept as a hot air balloon. They connect a slice of toilet paper roll that has been soaked in kerosene with wires. You light the fuel soaked roll and once its hot enough it soars up into the sky. You have to be careful to hold it level or it will catch on fire and then sometimes they burn up anyhow- or end up in a tree or something. But for the most part they just float on up. I've never heard of them lighting anything else on fire.

Praying Seema!

Praying for you both, Seema. (((Hugs)))

Is anyone else keeping up on the Bible readings? I think I've done it everyday for two weeks now. It's working well to pick something that I don't HAVE to do but that I enjoy doing everyday and making sure I read before.

Seema praying deeply for your mom, you and your sister. The waiting and helplessness is such a hard thing-to endure. Try to feel Jesus rocking all three of you in His arms.

Becky try holding on until things change andyou can get to a doctor even though I hate calling the doctor and waiting in pain in the waiting room I can't imagine how frustrating itwould be to not have anyone to call who might have the answers. Actually, I can understand a little because of my insurance snafu I've been waiting 18 months to seethe neurologist/epilepsy center. And it's been 6 months since I've been trying to get into the immunologist. I just know there's more going on then the shingles and somewhere someone has to have the answer. I'm lucky I have a great minister to talkand help me get through the hard times.

Amy the beta blocker can make you sleepy.I was surprised when you said you were on them because they're usually used for high blood pressure. That's what I was using it for a couple of years ago. I had BP ranging from 170/100 to 140/9O and I had intermittent blurry vision.They also might make your Raynaud worse because the reduce blood to extremities. But once your body adjusted to the meds the side effects should diminish. You aren't taking any over the counter drugs or herbal supplements are you.St John's Wart can cause dry interactions,There are several things that can cause tachycardia tachycardia and hypotension one is food allergies which I know you are careful Ruth yous diet but maybe youhave another allergy that you don't know about, also depression,and then A whole bunch of cardiac conditions I know your sister went to the Cleveland Clinic Is there anyway you can go too? I'd love to go and get my answers myself. I'm sure Ididn't tell you anything you didn't know but maybe you can leave a message fees the nice doctor even though he's only there a few times A month it sounds like he cares and if you called the office and asked then to tell him about your symptoms it might help help some more. Do your take themed on an empty stomach before bed? That might help too, unless you were told to take it at another time. I hope your feel better better soon. Love yas all!

I am so far behind, but I really don't want to get up. I like your idea maybe I will give that a try.

I only watch it in the beginning when they go to different cities, I like hearing the really bad singers. Then after Hollywood week I stop watching it.I think it's because I'm thankful that my family and friends would stop me from going on TV and make A feel of myself by missing every note and messy up the tempo.

Kara there is a daily devotion too that might be easier to read everyday than the verses. I'll add the link and you can check it out. Im pretty sure they use verses from the daily reading. And the verse of theday At the top of each posting is from the Read the Bible in a year, So even if you don't read the whole thing but just the verse you're still doing part of it.

Here's the devotional link for today Monday March 21
