LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Moving on

I have removed this last post.

Thank you for all of the love and support you sent to me in your emails. I treasure you. :)

Hugs,

Rhea

So sad you have to bear with people lacking respect for your work in addition to the pain of illness. illness makes just the normal things of life harder. I've seen it. I love your blog, you pictures and everything. I hope people will from now on leave you be and respect your work as any work should be respected. I'm happy for you that you can pray for those mean ladies because one can't really pray and keep bitterness in one's heart. I far as I understand you have enough to bear without being burdened by bitterness and grudges...
Have a nice and as pain-free week as possible and know that I'll be praying for you. I live far from you in Europa but I can do that much at least...
Hugs!
Ps: I hope you can understand what I wrote because English is not my mother tongue...

I'm so sorry you are so upset. I too am having some issues with some mean and spiteful women on the internet. I almost did as you did and posted a retaliation. The latest attack came from a woman dumb enough to leave a comment with her name and blog address. I looked up her blog and almost left her a nasty comment when I realized I was giving this evil woman too much of my very precious time. Also, she was doing the very thing of which she was accusing me of doing (which I am not) so hello, hypocrite! Sometimes the very hardest thing to do is to turn the other cheek. Our God owns the cattle on a thousand hills and He certainly has enough in His coffers to provide enough customers to buy everything you make. Do not give the enemy a foot hold by allowing the root of bitterness to take hold in your heart. I know you feel violated and that is an awful thing to feel. Forgiveness is the best weapon in a battle like this, Rhea. May the peace of God enfold you and comfort you. My prayers are with you.

Good that you are moving on. Stay away from whatever/whoever is toxic to you.
Now, when are you going to have those gorgeous cookies in your Etsy shop again?
Have a healthy week ahead!

Oh Sweet Rhea, I did not see the post, but I am glad you are leaving it all at God's feet. He is our redeemer and the battle belongs to Him. It is a hard thing for me to let Him fight my battles, you are so sweet...I love your work and am so excited to be able to get into your next swap. Whatever was said, does not make or break who you are. I pray for blessings and favor for you. Becs

I have been out of the loop..but what little I know of you..you are one of the strongest women...and a devout Christian..here in Blogland.
To deal with what you deal with physically and mentally...your name comes to my mind..when I want to complain about life.

May God keep your spirits up and keep you from worrying about these jealous people.Love your art work!!

Oh Rhea, I didn't see the post, but I can honestly say that I know you didn't deserve whatever it was. You are so kind and generous, and full of the love of our Lord. It shines through your life and art work. It's ok to break down and get angry every once in a while. But now you're moving on with the help of God. Let it out of your system. You are truly the better person for letting go of it and praying for this sad, sad woman (women).
I'm glad you can pray for her. It will heal you and maybe turn her life around. Try not to let it bother you any more, for "this, too, shall pass."
Big HUGS to you,
Patricia

Hi Rhea, I'm a fairly new follower to your blog, I think you make such pretty things... as a matter of fact, I purchased the mica bunny off your etsy today and I can't wait to get her! So many people are making so many of the same things, some are nicer and made better than others and I as a purchaser look for that when I purchase from anyone. I have bought so many things from people on etsy and their hard work and attention to detail does not go un-noticed by me and I'm sure by other buyers as well. Keep up the beautiful work, your very talented as are so many etsy sellers that it is hard for ME to keep up when you all do such beautiful work. Don't let others bring you down especially since there are so many of us that think you are wonderful! have a super week...hugs, Jennifer
