We had a wonderful time driving the back roads of Maine. Visited a couple of the coastal towns and then drove from the coast all the way west to NH. The best part is we not once went on a highway.
It was so relaxing.
Glad to see you back Susan. Will pray for a job for you.

Love forgives all wrongs.
HI ladies! It's been forever since I have been on Cubits. How is everyone?
Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends.

Hi Anita!!! It's great to see you again! It's fun seeing who still checks in now and then.
I'm worried about Magga with a volcano erupting in Iceland. Hope she can check in and let us know how she if doing...
Sending prayers for her and her family.....

I see Magga posting on FB quite often so pretty sure she's OK. I don't think the volcano is in a populated area.

Hi ladies, I am safe and well, thank you for caring Lovey dubby . The volcanic eruption is in an unpopulated area and so far everybody is safe. There are some poisonous gasses coming from the volcanic action that blow in various directoons by ever changing winds but our weather reporters warn us when the wind is expected to blow the gasses in our direction.

This current eruption is connected to the big volcano in Bardarbunga by an underground lava river. But the real danger is if the big volcano itself, Bardarbunga in the glacier Vatnajokull, will start to erupt. It lies under 800 meters of snow and a huge amount of glacial water will flood rivers and large areas and destroy many bridges,and we cannot know beforehand if the flood will go south, southwest or north. The plug in the large crater in Bardarbunga is sinking about a half meter each day and has done so since the lava eruption started in August. Our scientist say that if the current eruption will stop the earth will open in another place close by or there will be a big bang in Bardarbunga because of the large quantity of lava pressure underground.

When I was in The USA a few ears ago wisiting a friend in OR we drove to Mt. St. Helens in Washington and saw the great destruction there .

Well, I am now for a few days in my country cabin helping my DH with woodwork around the house - when weather permits. I have not done much quilting but am keeping my unfinished quilt close to my chair if I feel like sewing.

Barb, thanks for the wonderful photos from your trip, I'm glad that you had such a good time.
Susan, good that your sewing machine is working, what are you sewing? Hope you will get a job soon. Angel
Karen and Barb, your quilts are so beautiful thanks for all the pictures Thumbs up

Good - I have a new sewing machine
Good - I have projects to do
Bad - lost my job
Worse - my pastor wants me to transfer out of the church and I'm hurting
In-between - I'm church shopping and not sure how to do that...............

I have panic attacks when I'm out in public for any length of time, and I just want to be HOME
I know I'm dealing with depression, yet again, but that doesn't make it any easier...

Good - I will get some stuff done that I've been trying to, and never had the time...... well, I guess that's good - wish I had a job, but don't have the energy to look, at the moment..... Sad

Tomorrow is another day Susan and hopefully the sun will shine brighter for you. I know it is difficult to keep the faith right now but that is what you must do. There is a church for you and Bob and you will find it..... Group hug Group hug

I have the faith....... the Lord has never left me, and he's helping me through this. HE loves me regardless.

I sent an email to the Board Chair (John) re: conversations with our Pastor (Gary):
"John, inasmuch as Gary felt he needed to call me last Tuesday and berate me for our discussions on Friday and Saturday, then when I asked him to let he and I "please end the conversation" and he followed up with a flurry of 12 more emails to me...... I feel that he no longer wants me at Renfrew.
I'd told him I needed to end the phone conversation, and twice during the emails I tried to end it as well. I needed to quiet my mind and soul.
In one email, I tried to end it by saying "goodbye" and he took that to mean I wanted to leave Renfrw and offered to help me transfer out. I was stunned.
1. I thought any disagreements we may have had, you & I, were concerning soap dispensers for pete's sake - and, although it was heated at the time, if would have cooled down I thought, given time and our mutual respect.
2. He told me I needed to take responsibility should you decide to leave as Board Chair (a decision you've been struggling with for over a year). I told him I may have been "the straw that broke the camel's back" but that I would not take total responsibility
3. He berated me for not having a job, yet again, when I'm his age and should be able to keep one.
4. He told me that I was to step away from "anything to do with Renfrew" and I did - as he advised/told me to.
5. He didn't even want me to come to Chapel at Spruce Lodge and he would be the only one affected by this, as you don't attend the Spruce Lodge services.

Frankly, although he said he doesn't want me to leave Renfrew, I think he's embarrassed that I'm unemployed "at your age"and this is a sticking point with him.
I told St Andrew's that I didn't feel I couldn't do the job of an accountant, which they needed, and they agreed with me - simple as that.

I don't know what's going on in your life, that's causing your stress, other than this issue of the soap dispensers (which really, on the face of it and deeper, is not that big an issue with me - more on my Bob's side, but I'm dealing with that). I was only trying to support my husband, and frankly - I think this got blown Way out of proportion to what was necessary.
Yes, Bob spoke to Melanie, and I should have told him that only Kay was to, and Gary's angry about that.
Yes, I stood up for my husband, but it caused grief for you and I am sorry for that - I never intended to cause you anguish over your position as Board Chair.

Regardless of anything else we (you and I) have to say about this matter, Gary has offered to transfer Bob & I out of Renfrew, so he must have been thinking this is the best course to take and although it pains me to leave, I guess I have no other choice. I'm "shopping around" for another church to attend.

I hope & pray that any stresses in your life are as inconsequential as "soap dispensers" and will pray for you in your role as Board Chair - you're the best thing that's happened to the Board, and they need you.

If I've messed up in this email, please forgive me - it's heartfelt and I'm very sad that we should have this falling out.

Blessings,
Susan"

I'm so sorry Susan to hear about your troubles, it is unbelievable that anybody should have to go through such difficulties. I'm sure that you and your husband stand together through this with the help of our Lord.

You have been under a tremendous mental strain going from one employer to another looking for jobs or beginning in new jobs that only last a short time. This is surely more than almost anybody can take.

I know that you are a religious person and believe that our Lord stands by us always. I am too. There is a saying in my language: God helps those who help themselves,- Meaning that God helps us to do what needs to be done. I have been associated with people who have been tired and disappointed, among them one of my daughters. She decided with Gods help to do the right thing. She has been seeing a psychologist for some time and it has done wonders for her self-esteem and made her a stronger person to face new challenges.

I think it might do you good to take some time for yourself and maybe make something beautiful in your new sewing machine. I know that you need a job but you have been trying so hard, maybe too hard.

Dear Susan, These are just my thoughts, I really mean them well. sending you my prayers and best wishes Lovey dubby

I agree too, Magga. And, we have that saying in our language as well. Apparently it's of Greek origins.

Anyway - I love your sentiments, Magga and, as you agree Karen - yours too Angel

I have just finished some hand embroidery and am now working on Round Robin - brought them out last night.
I was stuck for quite awhile (depression will do that to you....) but now that I have time and a new sewing machine, I'm feeling better about myself. Things that needed to be "over-hurt" and finally SAID are now said. I am now realizing my my "gut feelings" about how my pastor has treated me over the years wasn't my reading too much into it, etc - he really has been saying these kinds of things to me, and it's good that it's come to a head. Once I got over the awful initial pain and heartache, it's ...... almost a cleansing. I know it may sound strange, but this is how I feel.
It's like cutting off a gangrenous limb....... sharp cuts are best. I no longer trust that he has my best interests at heart. Although, strangely enough, he sent me an email Monday night, with a link to a job search.
At the moment, I don't have the strength to look for a job - rejection in the form of either ignoring my sent-resumes or failed interviews scare the daylights out of me, so I'm going to take some time to re-group.
I know some may say "get back on the horse right away", I'm just not ready.........

I think it's wise to take a bit of "you" time. You've been through a lot and need some time to regroup.
