Here is a post from LPP and she wants to make sure "we" all see the post below this for Donna -

Dearest Pals,I have had a rough week beginning Monday, and from what I've seen and heard at home, I am not alone in my struggles this week.
A pal shared a song with me awhile back and it was only this week that the full meaning of it hit me, and it has been such an amazing encouragement to me, so I am sharing the song with you too. I have played it over and over while at the computer until my siblinsg were tired of hearing it, but when my mom got on the computer after me last night, she kept it on and said she loves the song, too ;)
It is called "The Promise" by the Martins, I believe. Here are the lyrics
I never said that I would give you silver or gold
Or that you would never feel the fire or shiver in the cold
But I did say you'd never walk thru this world alone
And I did say don't make this world your home
I never said that fear wouldn't find you in the night
Or that loneliness was something you'd never have to fight
But I did say I'd be right there by your side
And I did say I'll always help you fight'
Cause you know I made a promise that I intend to keep
My grace will be sufficient in your time of need
My love will be the anchor that you can hold on to
This is the promise, this is the promise I've made to you
I never said that friends would never turn their backs on you
Or that the world around you wouldn't see you as a fool
But I did say like me you'll surely be despised
And I did say My ways confound the wise
I didn't say you'd never taste the bitter kiss of death
Or have to walk thru chilly Jordan to enter into rest
But I did say I'd be waiting right on the other side
And I did say I'll dry every tear you've cried'
Cause you know I made a promise that I've prepared a place
And someday sooner than you think you'll see me face to face
And you'll sing with the angels and a countless multitude
This is the promise, this is the promise I've made to you
So just keep on walking don't turn to the left or right
And in the midst of darkness let this be your light
That hell can't separate us and you're gonna make it thru
This is the promise, this is the promise I've made to you
Oh, this is the promise, this is the promise I've made to you

The youtube link I was given is this:

I pray this encourages all you Pals as much as it has encouraged me!!

Love and Prayers,LPP

Hi, Mrs. Shirkie,

This video is very nice...I've never seen this one before! Thank you for putting it up here! Did you fix your computer? I missed the package this morning, but I will pick it up from the PO around 3 hopefully.

Mrs. Gaines,

I am so glad to hear that this encouraged you, too. It has been such an encouragement to me this week that I just had to share it with all the Pals. His grace IS sufficient, Amen!


Thank you for all your prayers!

Love and Prayers to all,
