DON'T COUNT ON ME

They just keep coming and I delete them. I don't forward them or return them but that doesn't mean I don't love you or love God. It simply means that I have confidence in our friendship and in God's love to know that I am valued regardless of potential email curses.

  1. G.A.----not sure what your post is speaking too? but if it is in reference to the so called "chain" letters saying you have to forward it to some number of others to continue the blessing of the letter, then yes---I just delete them----and go about my life.

  2. THANK YOU!

    I can't tell you how many "forwarded emails" die with me. Yep I love my friends, love the lord but I don't think my world will fall apart if I don't pass it on. My thought is I'm SAVING my friends from one more crappy forward!

  3. Annie,

    Every time I get one of those chain letters that says if I don't forward it to 12 people in 30 minutes I will die at Noon tomorrow,I think to myself,"How can John or Jane send this to me?"

    I NEVER forward them and inconvenience my friends, and guess what? "I'M STILL HERE!!!!!!"

    I used to forward them before I got smart and none of the wonderful things that were going to happen,happened!

    Enjoyed your poem at Elder Storytelling. It was good and thought provoking.....

  4. I used to feel guilty about deleting them...like God would look down on me and curse me for all eternity...and then I felt the real peace of God about it all, no matter what I do. Sometimes I forward and sometimes I don't.

  5. I hate those things.
    One thing I did like was your memory test - I got a lot of them right (it's an age thing).

  9. Yes I was talking about chain emails. Nancy, I agree about wondering why John or Jane would send them to me in the first place. It's like they want to curse me. Thanks guys and gals for feeling my pain.

  10. My thing with those is they always tell you you'll have good luck if you send them or bad luck if you don't. GOD is not about luck. GOD would not harm us if we didn't forward them and bless us even more if we do. I do like the sentiments on most of them and if I want to share those sentiments with others I forward, but delete the part I don't care for. But for the most part, I don't forward them, I delete them and I used to feel guilty about it too.
