A Glimpse Of Perfection
Living A Day In Grace Grace is always with us. It flows like a river through our lives, artfully reminding us that there is magic and power beyond what our eyes can see. At times we catch its subtle beauty, like during chance meetings, near misses, and insights that seem to come from nowhere. Other times we experience grace in all its powerful surety such as when a job or relationship comes to an end. Though we may forget that this is grace at work too, it is indeed influencing our lives, helping us to move forward and take the next step. Grace exists in all situations, in every moment, yet all too often we may overlook its presence.

Imagine how it would feel to live an entire day in grace, to fully appreciate that your day is unfolding in absolute perfection. Whereas usually you might miss the magic in ordinary events and interactions, on this day you would recognize them all as little miracles. Perhaps you could begin with your first deep breaths in the morning, becoming aware that there is an abundant supply of air for you to breathe. Your lungs know just how to carry oxygen to your blood, and your blood knows where to carry it from there. This is grace at work. You might appreciate the brilliant sunshine, the warm summertime rain, or the possibilities for learning that greet you at every turn. You might notice the ease with which you do your job or laugh with a close friend. These things are also grace. Even laying your head down at the end of this day and resting in the stillness of night is grace.

With each opportunity you give yourself to enjoy this current of benevolence, you may discover a deeper peace. Your faith may strengthen and your heart may open. You might begin to wonder if struggle is really all that necessary after all. By living this one day in grace, you might open the door to many more.

    My Reality, My Experience, Our Experience… the Main Site is Gone

    <!– @page { size: 8.5in 11in; margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } –>

    Prayer Partners Unite Main Site was Compromised and I choose to do NOTHING. I am not here to capitulate to the demands of anyone but God. I do not serve any But God. I will not alter my first Article, and the attack of killing off Prayer Partners Unite Main was issued at me. Problem is…. Members were again hurt, and for this I am deeply sorry. You need to know my Dear Administration, that Ning first allows a Banned person to contact me. And not only contact me, but all of you as well. Each of you received the same exact emails that I got in my emails at the same time through Ning’s Auto Responder. I want to thank Alex at Ning Tech for taking the time to explain this to me. I sent nothing out to the Administration itself, I did however send it to Rainbow (and a select few) for Prayer, as well as my Legal and Spiritual Practitioner through my personal email.

    The same emails, is the same Comments, that were posted by this person all over the Net where I personally am at. Because I will not change the first Article, and was stupid enough to let the person come on to the Main Site, to remove themselves to have the stigma of Banned taken off of them (which the HOST NETWORKS placed by their name not me or this Administration), the Main Site became compromised. This is where I was derelict in my duties to fully protect YOU my Members, and YOUR work.

    I had agreed at one point to change the first article, but after this personal (and Member) attack of the Main Site, the Article stands as is…. because it has now totally been proven to me that the first attack was real.

    There’s a lesson in here folks. The Internet itself is trying at times. Though we require speed, many times our own need for control, or the control of others steps in. This causes at worst the loss of friendship, associates, and creates unnecessary  fear for our own safety on the Net and privately. Too soon we forget the past Gifts from God that we receive from others, and not only do we forget, but they forget also.
    The work that many of us do is daunting, very little sleep, and many times we are not taking care of ourselves properly. These conditions, along with the demands of running our Sites… creates errors. Errors of a Technical Nature and errors of a Spiritual Nature. The Technical can be resolved, it is the Spiritual that concerns me. None of us will ever know the heart of another, ever. Only God knows these hearts of ours. It’s best I think, to get to know our own hearts, and forget ever trying to know another’s heart. This is God’s territory and just maybe if we stop trying to figure others out… we will find our own hearts once again appealing.
    If our personal reality is broken with perceptions (which are just that~perceptions, that cannot be changed unless We Choose To Change Them… rational exchange cannot and will not take place). Then their is no rational compromise, just anger.

    Anger is fueled by hurt, but Rage is fueled by hate.

    This is my space, My Blog, as each of you have your spaces and Blogs, and in our spaces we have creative control. Knowing this will end my space on the Internet (or so I have been told) because I will not retract my first story here… Then I bid all of you adue. For those who truly know me know, I write what I know, nothing more nothing less. I do not bow down to threats, I will not bow down to judgments and demands, I bow down only to my Creator… who knows my heart. If I am to be destroyed here in wires, then it’s a good thing that I have no attachments to the wires… and more care about the people behind the wires.

    I was told in no uncertain terms that “even God nor Michael would not help” me. Well then, my Prayer is simple, I will be the target of Grace, for I fear not death, haven’t since I was seven years old and took my own life. It was God who saved it, must be for a reason. I was told that “I hide behind my Administration.” Well, I’m not hiding, this is MY Newsletter, and my words. I was told I am “a Hypocrite.” Generally when one points the finger, there are three pointing back. I can’t be in a million places at once save right here, and right now in this space that I hold. So if I am to die here, then it will be God who raises me up in another form. If Prayer Partners Unite dies totally, it will simply be reborn. If I am to die a physical death, then I die, but I will rise in the Consciousness of Christ.

    I did what the Member wanted, I allowed them on the Main Site as I did on Ning, to prevent the label “ban” from encroaching upon there name…. that both Ning and Wetpaint places beside their name. Yet the Comments and emails kept coming. Even one that said “I do not hate you– I hate Your Lying mouth-.” So whose reality is right? You see, there is your understanding, my understanding, and hopefully somewhere in the mess is God’s Truth. Friends there is no “right or wrong” here only pain. They have lost and I have lost. I have lost faith in the ability to create something wonderful, and they…. have lost something precious to God, their heart. What form that takes, I do not know. Personally I am done! Let this Article and the first stand forever here whether I am here or not.

    No I will not hide, and wasn’t in the first place…. for the phone works both ways… and it’s faster than the Internet. I remember, if I thought I made the smallest mistake on this persons precious Domain, I called. Even though I had no access to the Domain, and was at Blogger. In my mind, and actions, I always tried to remember that whatever I do here… might affect the Domain… so I chose to be careful…. better to call and ask…. then to create a problem for them. Yet I was not given the same courtesy.

    I expected no help from WordPress and got none, none from Wetpaint and got none, none from Ning… but they surprised me. Most of all I expect none from this world. For the one thing I have deeply learned from this experience is this. Expect no~thing or no~one from this world to help you if you do not help yourself. Therefore I think it would be the Practical thing to do, since I am to die here on the Net, is to make out a last will in-testament on the very tool that is to kill me here and maybe on a physical plane as well.

    I therefore, being of sound mind hereby bequeath Prayer Partners Unite Ning to Cheryll… because Ning cares to protect it’s Members. And I bequeath Prayer Partners Unite Main Site to United In Spirit, oops I can’t do that, it isn’t there anymore. If anything be left of my Sites anywhere, let God turn it into a Seed of Wisdom, and plant it where it is to be planted, into whose heart comes after me. Because there will be another, there always is. I simply step out in faith and let God deal with the rest. Oh and by the way according to my paralegal ones NAME… by the Author in the printed material on the Net…. has to be mentioned for “defamation of character” to be issued. But then who knows. All I know, is to take things this personally on the net, email, or otherwise, is not following the once “sound advice” one gave me in a time before the hate consumed reality.

    “First, let me say that except in cases of libel and defamation, anyone has the right in most “civilized” countries to say what they want about you – on their blog not yours. It’s their playground, so if they want to play nasty, it’s their right. However, you do not have to let their sand spill into your sandbox.”

    Maybe this can help someone else because it came too late for Prayer Partners Unite Main. I would advice that anyone having a Wetpaint please be careful it is easily circumvented and NEVER give out your Passwords or Codes, or Email to ANYONE! No one, not even your Friends should have this.

    Be careful to those who you write to as well, your email address can be used against you as it was with me at Wetpaint. Get help from your email provider and get them to help you with passwords. Learn how to block Comments, blacklist Comments, Blacklist emails, and Blacklist threats coming onto your Sites or letters coming in your Private emails. And last…. NEVER! I repeat NEVER let anyone into your Home from the Net without your Family Members knowing them, and a full agreement with your Family is clearly established. Your Family Members also are Blessed with a second sight…. a deeper feeling…. and many times because of their objectiveness they can help can help you abade problems.

    So what now? Well for now I am going to sleep, 5 days of intermittent sleep has really gotten me tuckered out. I will rest, and see what God wants. Cheryll is in charge now and will be for whatever time I need off. 5 days with no sleep isn’t healthy, but once my Prayer Partner got over here today and re-blessed my Home, things are much better.

    And God Lord! To all Host Sites and Email Companies who have Members or Clients, Get in place, the ability for Members and or Site Creators to straight out Ban an IP! That would clear up a lot of stuff that goes on on this Net!

    Welcome To Our New Newsletter Home… WordPress.com

    Well, we are off to a GREAT Start all! This is a lovely place to share, I actually think I found this through Stumble Upon from the good Doctor. Oh let me introduce a delightful lady that we are hosting at the Main Site. Docinthebiz: http://prayerpartnersunite.wetpaint.com/page/Docinthebiz she’s in the “biz” of balanced healing in both Mind and Body. I went on this search, because of what took place at our Precious Library, we simply need to get away from the old ways of doing things and progress at a higher frequency. I love what the Doc says; “Don’t Just Dream It ~ Do It!”

    You see far too many of us just dream, or Pray, or “think about it.” We seem to forget…

    Thought = Word = Deed = ACTION!

    I don’t know about you, but as the Site Designer and Founder had to make a creative change as well as a practical sane change. I wish to thank everyone at our Business Site at Wetpaint

    ( http://prayerpartnersunite.wetpaint.com/ )

    and at The Library ( http://prayerpartnersunite.ning.com/ )

    For your support and Prayers, it’s not easy to Ban any Member, but when the Ethics of a Site is in question, it has to be done and done fairly. When a Site is compromised in any way, shape, or form, ACTION needs to be taken immediately. Unfortunately, in some cases, a minority abuse the privileges and responsibilities that they have been given. This was such a case. A specific person chose to alter the profile questions set by myself and when this happens all previous questions and your answers are deleted. The Administration Team deeply regrets, that your hard work and excellent profiles were disrupted, and have instigated interventions so this never happens again. These things happen to the best of Sites, with the most dear intentions. And we move forward.

    You need to know, that I am in contact with Ning, where the incident took place. And I will let you know if they agree with me that no Banned person should have the right to engage either Administration or the Members once they are Banned. Truly I am against “Internet Misery” however, if I felt a threat then action was the only recourse to protect not only myself, but you. However, I no longer feel the intense sadness or threat, that simply means Prayer works and God is in charge end of discussion.

    In speaking with a Friend of mine, it seems to be the daunting task that each of us must take a deeper look within, and quit relying on “someone” out there to be the guide. You have within you, the power to both learn and teach. You have the power “within” to adapt and shift. YOU, my Dears, are the host of God. No~thing or no one can intercede in the drama but a simple choice. Choose to change and shift. I just thank God I can work under duress. LOL! Well that’s the deal guys and gals, we keep doing what we love and all things will come into place.

    I will continue to make beautiful things, cause that’s what makes me happy. I’m not here to be a Guru, or Guide, or God. I’m just here being me. Nothing more, nothing less. The Internet can be fun when we don’t take it personally. So WELCOME! Isn’t this the most professional thing you ever saw? Cool, I like it here, hope you do too. Please remember that if you get any odd emails, please don’t hang on to it forward it to Cheryll right away.

    By the by, the hits just keep coming! Google Analytics is just counting away. And now with the addition of WordPress I think we will do well with getting our messages out. So enjoy out NEW Newsletter Look and Home!

    God Bless
