    Just an update . . .

    Friday, April 9, 2010, 2:24 PM [General]

    Just want to post a brief note to let everyone know I am doing ok. It has been a long time since I have been on BeliefNet & some of it has to do with computer problems, health issues and just not having time. It has been a rough time these past few months and we are striving to come out of it intact. I do hold onto my faith but at times, I am afraid to admit, even that waivers, but I am still here and will continue to put one foot in front of the other. In case others are on Facebook I am on there also .. Jessalee Shields-Wade so if you would like to find me there you are more than welcome. I will try to check in here more often as my friends & the groups on here truly are wonderful and I really have missed the interaction with all!!

    Not sure about this new look ??

    Sunday, March 8, 2009, 3:27 PM [General]

    I don't know how long BeliefNet has been changed to the new look but I do not care for it at all!! What happened to the old look. That one was so much nice & easier to organize and find what you wanted.  Am I the only one with this thought?

    I am once again so very sorry!

    Saturday, December 6, 2008, 4:01 PM [General]

    To all of you, my BN friends, I am truly sorry about my long absence. I have had a problem with my computer once again and have yet to get it fixed but I was blessed with parents who bought me a laptop so I can be online and reconnect with you all plus stay in touch a lot more often than what I had been doing. I am going to use the next couple of days to drop each of you a little note so we can catch up on all the news that I have missed. Once again to each of you I am truly sorry and promise to stay up with all of this now.  I have truly missed each one of you. There were many times I could have used someone to talk to or ask for prayer but felt I was on my own as I could not get ahold of anyone and I don't want to feel that "loneliness" again.   Much love, hugs & prayers,  Jessy  (Jessalee08)371d36d75e05eda735858f8e467be99c

    Once again . . .

    Tuesday, July 15, 2008, 2:14 AM [General]

    Here I am once again just getting back online. I am so truly sorry to all of you!! I have been going through some issues that I am still struggling with but hopefully with the support of my friends here I will be back to "normal" in no time. I truly can not say what is going on with me just not feeling like I should be. I don't know if it has to do with my health - my 39th birthday - my marriage going through the ups and downs more often then ever now - or the fact that I am just not sure where I am supposed to be right now.  I am honestly not going through depression - been there done that so I know what I go through with that I just feel like there is something I am missing and I can't find it myself and it is not a good feeling. Ok - enough self wallowing!! I am going to seriously devote some time each day on BN and getting back in touch with you all and of course posting even if only an hour or two each day. I have missed all of you so much and am so very much looking forward to chatting with each of you and hopefully "picking up" where we left off. I value each  and every one of your friendships and have been lost without them!  Looking forward to hearing from you all soon! Always much love, hugs and prayers, Jessy  (Jessalee08)

    Looking for help

    Sunday, May 18, 2008, 9:36 PM [General]

    I have a question that I am hoping some one can help me with. My heart is heavy and has been now for a couple of weeks. How do you know if the church you are attending and feel close to is actually the church where you should be? What do you do if that church lets you down? I am dealing wth some stuff right now with the church I am a member of and don't know what I should do. It is breaking my heart because I was baptized here and thought it was the church for me and would always be but some things have been going on that I don't agree with and now I am questioning my feelings. Please if anyone can help me with this I would sure love to hear from you.

    Hey all

    Thursday, May 15, 2008, 11:05 PM [General]

    I am here hopefully for good this time. Every time I thought I had beat the bug it popped back up and took me down again and this time was the worst. I have missed everyone here so I am going to try each day to devote an hour or more God willing to being here and keeping up with my messages and posting on my groups. For all of you that has been sending messages and posting on my profile thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am so blessed with all the friends I have made since my joining BN and I thank the good Lord everyday for leading me here. You are all very special to me and I just wanted to say thank you for your friendships! I am looking forward to sharing with you always. May God Bless all of you!

    I am trying . . .

    Monday, April 21, 2008, 1:48 AM [General]

    Here I am once again wishing that I felt like being on here more but health wise things are just not working out. I am making an appointment tomorrow with a hematologist & a rheumatologist because I am just not "recovering" from this last bout with whatever bug I caught. I have good days & bad and lately the bad are outweighing the good.  I did have a great Friday & Saturday. We had a Women's Minstry Conference with Lisa Harper as the speaker and Kim Hill as the Worship Leader and it was so GREAT that I was bursting with praise for God both days. If any of you EVER get the chance to go see these women you MUST do it!  They are the best I have heard and they really blessed us all. Then I spent the night with my best friend with no kids (her's :) ) and no husbands. We didn't stay up too late as we had to be back at the conference Saturday morning at 8 (but it was worth the early morning for me). We started watching Alvin & the Chipmunks but didn't make it through the whole movie and ate junk food and just enjoyed a quiet girls' night.  The only downfall of the whole 2 days was I had a bad afternoon Saturday after the conference and spent the remainder of the day in bed.  I did get up for church this morning and then our revival began this evening and is lasting until at least Wednesday and I WILL be there. I feel this is important to me as I am struggling with some personal things right now besides my health and I need to be reminded that no matter what comes up in my life God will take care of me and He is there to see me through the "crisis"/trials. All I have to do is to remember to turn to Him for comfort and strength. I will try and do my hardest to spend more time on here with each and every one of my friends and posting on my groups. Please forgive me all! I have not forgotten any of you and will not make any excuses besides the fact that my life is a little upside down right now health & personal wise so please just remember me in your prayers as I remember each of you in mine.

    Just wanted to let everyone know so you don't think I am "forgetting" you all again but I am sick again with this bug that insists on lingering. Hopefully it will just be a day or so and not 2 weeks like the last time. Please keep me in your prayers & hope to catch up with you all soon.

    I DID IT!

    Saturday, March 29, 2008, 3:28 PM [General]

    3 miles & I DID IT! God is great!  It was so easy I didn't even realize I had walked 3 miles. Of course, that is today -- we shall see what I say tomorrow :P  I am so proud of myself. I really was worried cause of my health but it turned out great. It started to rain just a bit and then it held off until we were done. I did it under an hour too which was a big feat for me as some of our power walkers were just before me & I didn't think I was walking that fast. But it is over and I am home. I will email everyone later if I can move :) if not tomorrow for sure.

    Started a group ...

    Friday, March 28, 2008, 12:55 AM [General]

    I would love to share with everyone that I have started a group titled "Getting Fed" and it is a place where anyone who needs understanding or just someone to talk to about their faith and are not getting it from their loved one(s) then this is the group for you. I am in this situation with my husband and though my parents attend the same church they are pretty much worse about my faith than my husband is. So if you need someone to talk to or just share with I am here for all. Please send me a request and please feel free to join even if you just need to get something off your chest. Thanks!
