Well I have had a wonderful and enlightening journey here on DC and I feel that a part of me will always remain here on this site, but the other part that has called me for even greater things has the final say so. When I was called, I told myself that I would do all I could to do the WILL of THE MASTER and now that the call has allowed me the time to spend here to meet beautiful people as the ones that I have met here, you almost want to say that you're not going to leave.

But in the WORD it does states that OBEDIENCE is better then SACRAFICE. So now that I am faced with this decision I know that my time and my journey has come to a close, and the road ahead is greater then I or the need to stay.

I want all those who lives I have touched and who has touched me to know that this has nothing to do with you nor have any of you done anything to cause my departure. I feel that my life will always be enriched and I have grown all the more by my joining this site and now that I'm leaving I desire only to have touched the lives that I have encountered and never to caused anyone hurt in anyway.

One thing have I desired is to have caused someone to laugh and share in the gift that I have to love people unconditionally and to accept them for the people that they are. I've not nor will I ever be the person that tried to force my way into nor become a part of someone life without them having invited me in to be a part of their lives. I would rather to know that I have caused someone to want to live on and fight this thing we all share, but as the heading says this a final so long and I hope that my spirit remain in the hearts of those who I have met here and I wish all that I have met all the joy that life has to offer and don't ever give up. God never said that the race would be easy and He never promised that it would be without challenge, but He did promise us that in the mist of our disspare that He would be there with us ever step of the way. Just remember all STAY IN THE RACE.

For those who care to write me outside the site my personal E-mail is: IsaiahsOne@aol.com small or HiCharish@yahoo.com small. I would love to write and talk with each of you at one or the other addresses. I don't plan to closeout this site, I will be leaving it open for those who desire to talk here and can't get through to my personal E-mail. So I will be stopping in from time to time to check okay.

This is not good-by but so long and I will always remain here in spirit.

Take care … Hugs and Kisses

May God wrap you in his arms and keep you. Take care and check in every chance you get.

Best of luck. May i ask what you have been called to do.
Notably, anything pertaining to the church or Christ is an amazing and definitely a calling. I'm glad your answering that call.

Charish 2009-03-15 20:44:40 -0500 Report

Well the call is one of being a servant and in that I'm what is a called and Armor Barer and not just that I am one of the Ministers of my Church. But this is not one of a preaching compacity because there are many ways to Minister other then preach. I love that God has me reaching people that want to here about and need to know Him and His Son Christ. It can be challenging at times but God never said that the journey would be easy but rather the journey would always have Him in it and there waiting for us to call on Him. Just simply stay in the race thats all.

I have a gift of talking to others and trying to good by others even if it not understood or wanted and when that happens well I have enough sense to get out of the way. It does take a special gift or call for you to do that works of God and have the heart for the Ministry.

Take care … Hugs and Kisses

I was surprised to see that this had resurfaced and I have been about My Fathers business as you would expect. I'm doing well and I feel better about not leaving my friends here. Although I don't put in as much time here anymore I do still stop in and I have each of you in my heart.

Take care … Hugs and Kisses

Thank you in your well wishes but the good thing is that I have opened myself to the level in which I'm to do the will of the Father and the other good thing is that I haven't left the site. I just don't but in a much time here as I first did and I do stop by to say hello and answer mail.

Teresa; I know we have talked from time to time, and we are among other friends here who have conversed. But it will just not be the same, not seeing your smiling face, and through your words hearing the love in your heart, and the love of God in your heart. I hope that your journey to the maker is smooth and pain free. Friend you will sooooo be missed. Luv:Claudia

Charish 2009-01-12 16:44:17 -0600 Report

Hello Dear Claudia,

You know it has been harder for me to leave then what I thought it would be. Although my journey has already been planned and my walk with God has been a long one, I know that He leaves us and places us where we will do the most good for those that we meet and have in our lives as friends. My dear we have talked from time to time and I share all those things that are view with respect amd the love that you possess and I in my heart. I know that my journey is a long one ahead and I know that I will meet others that will influence my life, but I feel non like the ones that I have met here and the lives that I have embraced as my friends.

I thank you for my well wishes and I know that I will need them in the days to come, but I also know that my journey here may not have come to the close that I thought it was and that there are lives here that have become my life and I can't easily walk away from that. As God guide me in this I have already prayed and I await His answer and I'm not rlying on my own.

But in any case I know that you will be in my heart no matter where I end up and I know that you are surrounded by people that love you and care for you, and that in itself is priceless.

Take care of yourself and know that I may not be gone just yet and that is His devine order on my life not my own decision.

Hugs and Kisses

Thanks so much, Teresa, for seeing my concern. I really feel a distinct urge for you not to leave, and don't know why, who knows? Maybe that has to do with the reason I am here. I am a strong believer that God has a plan for each and every one of us, and that the pain and hardships we have lived through will not be for not. That something really good will come out of all that bad. Maybe that is what you are to me. The knowledge of something good and understanding in God. I am trying to understand and now I will go back to my Bible and on the web to look further. Teresa, thanks so much for your love and patience with me, and God be with you. Love and Peace ,Claudia

Hello Claudia,

It's amazing how God shows you your importance and how your presence is played out in the lives of those that you meet along the way. I felt something in what you said I do believe that the answer I searched for has been in my heart the entire time but I had not seen it yet.

Edie and I have talked on this very subject and she had a very good idea for me to practice rather then leave stay away from the site and answer mail that is basically sent to me personally and stay away from the discussions for awhile. I have given much thought to her suggestion and that's what I feel I should do.

As you said and I did as well, God wants me here and not to leave nor allow my heart to be troubled about it anymore. It always good to know that the Light of God in my life has reached someone else and that alone lets me know that my journey is well worth the distance traveled and the things that I will endure along the way are only designed to make me stronger and that more determined to follow the call and BE ABOUT MY FATHER'S BUSINESS TOO.

Hugs and Kisses

I am so glad that you are not leaving; It seems I have a lot to learn.
I have to tell you that I did a web search using some of the words about the answer to Gods' call, and it led me to an adoption site. Funny, it is something I always wanted to do. I saw that as some sort of direction I should go, and definitely give more thought to.
Thanks again,Teresa

Charish 2009-01-14 14:16:40 -0600 Report

You are welcome!!!!!!!

Just know that the journey is one that is greater then yourself and it will lead you to places that you will encounter many that will either support you or those who will not. Know that there are many resources out there to help you along the way and study carefully. Just remember to plant the WORD of God so deeply in your heart that when someone comes along and try to tell you something other then the WORD of God itself you will know whether they are speaking truth or a lie.

And the thing I love saying so well is that, God never said nor promised that the race would be easy but He did promise that He would be there for you. JUST STAY AND FINISH THE RACE…SMILES!!!!!

Hugs and Kisses

hello charish, we've never really talked but i've enjoyed some of the posts you've left and the comments also. I hope in your journey you find peace wherever you go and enjoy life as it comes, and you will be missed.

Charish 2009-01-12 16:35:21 -0600 Report

Hello Midget,

No we haven't talked much but I know that you are surrounded here by lots of people who care for and love you. As it seems that my leaving has caused much distress to so many that I love, care for and have made friends with. I have gone in my prayers to Gods about my decision and I feel that the answers will be what I will already know and that is that I to remain here for those who have reached out to me and to not be worried abotu my journey with Him.

Regardless to what he has planned for me here and in my path taken with His guidence the call is still there and I have already answered, but if its His desire that I remain then I will. But it has to be God request not my own.

Take care of yourself and know that you are amoung many will help and show you the path to take that will give you strength and help you in this fight that we face with the monster that has stopped by in our lives.

Hugs and Kisses

Hello Charish. It has been a wonderful experience haveing you as a friend here on DC. As a minister,I understand your message even tho,It leaves a empty feeling. My wife,my family and I wish you the very best of wishes as,You endeavor to accomplish the duties set forth by the MASTER for you. Our prayers are with and for you. John

Charish 2009-01-05 01:47:57 -0600 Report

Hello John,

As you and I both know ministry is a call that we have to answer and thank you for your understanding the call on my life and the purpose that God has placed in my life. Its not always easy to answer but we do answer don't we…SMILES. As this journey ends a new one begins and I'm not sure of what it calls for me to do, but I'm sure it will be revealed to me soon.

But thank you for your kind words and your understanding support, being appointed by God is an awesome task and one that has me thinking and embracing. All yours and your families well wishes are greatly received and felt deeply. But it's goood to know that I have a brother in Christ in you.

Hugs and Kisses…God Bless

My dear friend. You are certainly going to be missed. Your smiling face has been a joy to look at and we all know that a person of your statue is never left in one place. Our journeys are many. Obviously, you are headed to better things and god does know what he is doing. And as always He makes graet decisions. The joy of you will always be in our hearts my friend. Godspeed and blessing.


Charish 2009-01-05 01:35:35 -0600 Report

Hello G Thomas,

As we know journeys never leave us in one place for long, but it does sadden the heart that we do have to part from those that we've grown to love and respect. My journey has closed but my heart remains open and in touch of who I am and the lives that I openly accepted here on DC. He who holds the master plan will always lead and guide me, and love will only grow and flerish as with my spirit. And you never know the journey may call for my return briefly but its always His plan not my own.

Take care of yourself and always remember that in the race we may grow tired and worn, but God is always there to give us strength to finish the race.

Hugs and Kisses

I am indeed saddened by the fact that I have joined this site too late to have come to know you. You sound like such a wonderful, God fearing lady. Our risen Savior will surely continue to guard your steps.
Be Blessed,

Thank you Ken,

I know that God's journey is my own and His plans are far greater and more then what I had planned for myself.

Take care and know that there are great people here to help you in what ever you need. My personal E-mails were included so if you like to write feel free.

Hello Sweety,

Thank you and I know that my journey will be one that will take me to places that only God has prepared for me and there are many more lives I have to reach. His reasons for taking me away is that He made me to know that I was sent to be a light and never to be anything more. It was never His plan for me to be hurt or battered in return. I know that I can't change the world but with His guidence I can perhaps change lives and maybe even touch some hearts.

God bless
