Where in the world is IsmiLiora Sandiego?

I hope she is doing ok, I haven't heard from her since she asked for prayers about her marriage.

I second that...anyone have her as friend on facebook or anything? Maybe check and see if she has email on her profile and check in with her...

edit: her profile says she was last active today!  :angel: Perhaps we should continue to pray for her...Lord have mercy.

I have been wondering about her for quite a while.  I have been praying for her often and hope everything is well.  I really miss dear Ismi.

I figure I should use this thread for my general response. I figured that I was busted when PMs and posts were indicating that others were looking at my profile and seeing that I was still active!

I really thank all of you for your prayers. I haven't individually responded to the PMs, but I really do appreciate all of the prayers and thoughts during that time.

As much as I have enjoyed posting here, things have changed so much in my personal life over the past few months and I no longer feel like I can post or respond to PMs. I am still reading, obviously, but that's all for the moment.

Thanks again, all.

When thinking about what to post, I first had to fight off the urge to make a dumb joke. Then I had to fight off the urge to make an overly-obnoxious "it'll be ok" comment. So... um... what am I left with?  Oh! I know...  go kick life's *ss! We're rooting for you! :)

LOL.  How dare you have a real life.

Take care.  Through the prayers of the saints the Lord have mercy on you.

if you spit on it, it will be put out;

Some of the old threads that got bumped today reminded me of her great contributions to this board.

I really want to know how she has been doing, I felt her absence has been unresolved.
