I'm grateful that even though I have heard awful things said about me publicly this week, I know there are more that recognize lies than do not.  I'm grateful that the LORD continues to grant me mercy, peace and comfort through difficult times...He will never leave me nor forsake me!

Shout for joy to ADONAI, all the earth!
Serve ADONAI with gladness.
Enter his presence with joyful songs.
Be aware that ADONAI is God; it is he who made us;
and we are his, his people, the flock in his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
enter his courtyards with praise;
give thanks to him, and bless his name.
For ADONAI is good, his grace continues forever,
and his faithfulness lasts through all generations.
~Psalm 100:1-5

I'm grateful to live for today.

What are you grateful for this week?

I'm grateful for my new netbook!

I'm grateful that the L-rd truly is my defense and that He knows the truth...

I'm grateful for others who have walked the path we are on and offer their support.

I'm grateful for the coming weekend and time with dear friends (yeah, I say that one a lot, but I'm grateful for them every day).

I'm very grateful for your Grateful Friday. I'm grateful that Jews are to express thanks at least 100 times a day (so easy to do even in the midst of trouble). I'm grateful that so many know the truth and aren't afraid to say that. I'm grateful that the truth exposes lies and darkness and relegates them to the place they belong. I'm so very grateful that the truth eventually does surface in spite of tremendous efforts to keep it hidden.

I'm grateful for people who will stand up and be counted, telling the truth even when the price is so high.

Our History with Saber Forge

UPDATE, April 19, 2012: we purchased new sabers from Ultra Saber LLC. To see a review, go HERE.

Saber Forge's Ambassador saber hilt
This post is to document and record the history of our experience with a company called Saber Forge. I would like this information to serve as information and perhaps a warning to all that are interested in purchasing a machined lightsaber, and/or are considering Saber Forge.

Saber Forge makes and sells lightsabers to be used as props with Star Wars costumes. When we started looking to purchase lightsabers that had the ability to light, Lisa posted for information on the Rebel Legion website. She was contacted by Mr. Phil Isherwood, owner of SaberForge.

It is most unfortunate that we have had problems with the sabers. I love the hilt, to be honest, and felt that we got what we paid for; however, the lingering problems and now the complete lack of customer service is most troubling.

Just Throwin' It Around

I have a friend who just got engaged to be married. As he was detailing the way he proposed to his beloved, something he said caught my attention. In the course of his adult life, dating and living, he had promised himself that he would only use the actual word love towards the one who he was going to marry. He further explained that it was his thought that people 'throw the word love around carelessly' and that it had a special meaning, one meaning. For him, it was only to be used in speaking to his soon-to-be wife.

I can see his point, especially when thinking about dating. I know it happens, all too often, that relationships proceed a little too quickly and emotions peak prompting hasty pronouncements of love and devotion only to be rescinded down the line, after the passion has worn off. Careful and introspective we must be when experiencing and building a new relationship that we don't bite off more than we can chew, so to speak. I agree with my engaged friend - w…

Confession

I am a maker and collecter of Artist Trading Cards. In my world, we call them "Letterboxer Trading Cards", because they are made by letterboxers and they must have a hand-carved stamp featured on the card. I have made hundreds, even thousands of these cards, and enjoy the hobby immensely (samples shown are a few of my cards). I also collect them from other artists and letterboxers, and have a collection numbering (also) in the thousands.



So, here's the confession: I HATE LOGGING THEM! Yes, that's right, I said 'hate'. I know, that's pretty strong, but it is the only way I can adequately describe the feeling of dread that comes over me the second after I enjoy receiving them in the mail. If I were a disciplined person, I would immediately make my way to the computer, sign into to my favorite letterboxing site and let these wonderful friends know how much I love their efforts, thus easing their minds that their hard work arrived safe and sound in my care.
