You Speak Out

Never Too Busy to Say I Love You

Our lives are hectic, to say the least. With three children, a husband, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, and a lizard... somebody in the house is always needing/wanting something or to go somewhere. Then add in my husband's full-time job, my "might-as-well-be-full-time" job, basketball, soccer, homeschooling – I am always on the go. Busy, busy, busy.

I am a full believer that the Lord will speak to us in His smallest, stillest, quietest voice... if we will but listen. I recently learned that lesson all too well. My dear friend from college has been in difficult situations lately. Her emotions up and down, her finances spent, all for the love of her children. The miles were many between us, but thanks to email, we corresponded regularly.

On a recent Wednesday afternoon on my way out the door to work, I checked my email quickly. A note from my friend was waiting for me. She'd sent it at 12:10 p.m., just about 15 minutes prior to when I checked my inbox. The first thought that ran through my mind was I'll write back tonight when I get home; I don't have time now. I got up out of the chair and headed for the door.

Then I heard it – that whisper. That still small voice. "Write her now." I turned on my heel and sat back down. I gave her words of encouragement and love. I shared a verse from the Old Testament book of 1st Kings. I hit Send and said a prayer that the Lord would fill her with His peace, and off to work I went. I checked for a response when I got home. Nothing. But that wasn't so unusual... she kept busy, too. A week went by... and I wondered if she was feeling better. I prayed she was feeling better.

Sunday morning... I checked my inbox once again. I did have a response, but not from her - from her son. The response hit me square in the chest and might as well have been a shotgun blast. She'd passed away – the same day I had turned around and responded to her quick note. My heart was broken in two. I had no idea... I should have said so much more. Did I say the right thing? Did I say enough? Oh, Lord... what if?

But in these last couple of weeks, I have found some peace in knowing that I did take the time to tell her I loved her... and to share a truth from God's Holy Word. It stirs my soul to think my words may have been the last ones she ever read on this Earth. And I am so very thankful they were words of love.

Always take time to give sincere words of encouragement and love... you never know when it may be your last opportunity to do so. We are never too busy to say I love you.

- Lynn Martin (Lynniepoo)

Muse: To be absorbed in one's thoughts; engage in meditation. Not intended to solve the world's problems, another person's problems, or to cover topics completely. One does not have to agree with musings to enjoy them, just as one does not have to be the same as someone else to appreciate who they are.

Would you like to earn a $20 Gift Certificate? Send your own muse to [email protected]. If it is selected for publication in the Scrap Girls newsletter, you'll get to have fun shopping!

Early on Monday, Pat will post a thread on the Chat section of the board giving you the quote that you will use to make your own word art. It's not hard, and she will have a layout with a Word Art example in the gallery. Then we'll meet in the chat room to have fun, chat, and create our Word Art layout! Everyone can participate and create a layout, even if you can't make the chat. Hope to see you there!

Games

August Message Board Game: BINGO!

Join us for an exciting game of August BINGO on the Scrap Girls Forum!! Pick 25 words from the list provided and send them in an email to [email protected] with a subject line that says "BINGO CARD - your Scrap Girls Message Board username" by Monday August 1st (Midnight MDT) in order to play in the first round. The first round will begin on Tuesday, August 2nd. If you miss the first round deadline, you can still play! Just send in your BINGO card at any time during the month, and you'll be eligible to begin playing when the next new round starts.

Each day (Monday through Saturday), a member of the Welcoming Committee will call five random words from the BINGO list. Match just 15 of those words to win a BINGO. You must be first to call "BINGO!" in the game thread to win that round. After a winner is called, the boards will be cleared and a new round will begin the following day.

Each winner will receive a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! We like to see lots of winners, so please remember that each person can only win one round during the month. Have fun!

For complete details, visit the Monthly Message Board Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.

Contests

August Monthly Layout Contest: The temperatures are hot, and staying cool is a must! Water is a priority in the summer heat! For the August Layout Contest, we'd love to see your layouts featuring water! Dig out those photos of the kids in the pool, the family on a boat ride, or even a waterfall! Journaling about what water means to you will help make this layout more meaningful to you in the future. Post your layouts in the August Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight MT on August 31st. Be sure to list your credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties. If your layout is one of the two chosen winners, you will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!

Club Concepts Layout Contest: Post your new layout using the current club selection (either the Scrap Girls Club or the ScrapSimple Club) in our Scrap Girls Club Members Gallery or the ScrapSimple Club Members' Gallery. Be sure to list all of the Scrap Girls products you used. If your layout is chosen, it will be showcased as a Club Concepts layout winner, and you will win a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!
