  1. Thanks Gail for participating! It was a delight to read your answers. 🌟 Thanks also for your kind words about my blog. You’re writings are a ray of sunshine. ☀️ 🥰

    I agree that we should follow God above all else, and I love that your favorite characteristic about yourself is that you love God above all else. You have a pretty big family, 6 siblings! That’s wonderful. It is difficult to confront people. How did you learn to overcome that fear?

    1. PTL! Thank you for allowing God to use you! 🙂
      I love that characteristic because it’s still really all about Him!
      2 siblings are fostered and 1 adopted, but ALL siblings are blessings. If I had to count my brothers and sisters in Christ I would be as Abraham… unable to count them for they would be as the stars in the sky. ❤
      By God's grace and only in His strength have I learned it is best to confront that which comes at us. I don't know if that counts for overcoming, but it is how God has helped me to deal with confrontation. The majority of the time what is coming at us is only doing so because we do not put up a fight. We're pretty much a welcome mat then. I never stop needing His strength to fight, but He loves being there!
      God loves you, Dawn! 🙂

      1. I agree, all siblings are blessings! Thanks for sharing your insight on confronting. It’s very helpful. Confrontation is an area of my life I’m working on with God’s help. Thanks for the reminder…God loves you too! ❤️

  2. Congratulations on the very well-deserved award, Gail! You know, I don’t think I’ve ever even tried cantaloupe. I’m going to have to remedy that soon. How do you like to eat it, like in a soup or own its own..? I’m clueless!
    I hope the week ahead treats you kindly 🌷

    1. PTL! God is so kind and generous to share a little ray of His love! ❤
      Cantaloupe is a fruit. A good one is so juicy and taste sooo good. I have often joked I would love to have a good juicy cantaloupe kiss, but of course in reality it would probably make you choke to do such a thing, I wouldn't care to ruin my cantaloupe or miss one juicy bite! LOL 🙂
      I guess you could make a juice out of it like orange juice. I think Lovely A once told me it was like a fruit you have called rockmelon??
      I pray you are doing better, and are finally home and able to rest. Been thinking of you and praying for you! Me and God cherish you, Caz! ❤
