My dear friends, fellow writers, readers, my brothers and sisters in Christ:
It has obviously been a very long time since I last posted anything here at Faithwriters. Besides a computer crash that my computer never quite recovered from as it is just so old now (Windows Millennium Edition), Iíve also been experiencing some issues with my phone line. The phone company apparently has problems with crossing peopleís lines, but they donít seem to acknowledge that there is a problem. So I often find that I have no dial tone at all and often hear other people on the line. To make matters worse, the only internet connection in this area, other than satellite, (which is outrageously costly in this remote area) can provide only dial-up service. It has been virtually impossible for me to get online until recently. And even now, my computer throws fits just trying to open a single page.
I donít know how much longer my computer is going to hold up. And I do not foresee being able to replace it anytime in the near future, though I know full well nothing is impossible with God. (I have seen Him do the seemingly impossible with this broken vessel [ME] to be sure!) Nevertheless, I will try to get here and post when I can.
Forgive me, please, for not being able to keep up with all your posts, as I have so very many on my tracking list, and for having missed so many of your posts for so long now. They are such a blessing to me and I miss the privilege of having my heart so touched by the pens and the hearts of my dear friends.
Thank you, Mitzi. I did get to see the extremely encouraging comment you left for me recently on one of my old poetry collections pages. I love you and have missed you, just as I have loved and missed so many here. What an extraordinary place you have always held in my heart.
May you all taste the goodness of God in your lives today and stand in awe of the depths and the heights of His love for you, which is most certainly beyond our full understanding.
Yours in Christ Jesus,
Treava (Joyce Pool)

Well my beautiful sister things should be looking up...right...about...now...your faith calls it done! I enjoy you so much...I want to take the time to absorb the words you wrote they are so inspirational, so timely and so needed...in these times...as you know you are forever in my heart..my sister in Christ...my champion of the pen!
Hi Trev! I've started coming back, as of late, myself. Just want you to know that I am praying for God to send you a computer. A good, up-to-date computer. You're too wonderful of a writer to not have a good one, and the Lord God, your Father desires you to have one to. So, remember, to she who believes.....NOTHING is impossible! Love, Barb

I can relate, Joyce, about not getting anything on FW for a long time, until today. But my reasons are different from yours. Sorry about your computer problems. I've had my share of those. But my reasons have been trips to the hospital with Hart for his badly infected foot. Our loved ones come first, over writing and computers. Right? Hope to have more time soon to read all my "tracker" friends' things. God be with you...Helen
Oh, Treava... It is SO GOOD to see you on FW, again! We have missed you so! I don't imagine you will ever be able to read all the emails in which we worried about you and wondered about you in Aaron's Arms. But, there has been SO MUCH LOVE coming to you for a very long time! We will be blessed for as long as you can connect with us - and please know that our thoughts and love are ALWAYS with you! Much love, Peggy
Hi Joyce I would like to join with Peggy in saying it is SO good seeing you back at Faithwriters. I have been having some of the same computer problems that you have been having. It sometimes takes forever for me to open anything as well. I cannot afford anything but dial up eithr. Plus I had to call Dell just to get my computer to open. They walked me through some stuff, and it is working for now. Anyway SO good to see you back. I love you, Sharon
