Behind Blue Eyes . . . just Who Is This Beauty?

A woman of strength! A woman of beauty and grace… that true beauty from within and grace freely given! A woman who is able to love others above and beyond! A woman who has been tested and perseveres through it all! A woman of great faith! A woman after God’s own heart!

This woman is none other than Skye Tudae aka skye2day!

Yes, Skye is one passionate writer, who writes of her true life experiences without holding back to His glory.

Skye has been on HubPages for over seven years now and she has many followers and many who love her. What is there not to love? So, why did I feel the need to give lovely Skye a hug? Well, just because she is unwavering in sharing the love in her beautiful heart, not only in her amazing writing, but when leaving those truly loving comments on one’s hubs.

I know that each time Skye has visited one of my hubs, and left her comments, I truly feel the love that emanates from her heart. There is such a calming tone to her comments, leaving one feeling so very much at peace.

Thank you dearest Skye for caring and sharing here in HP Town and loving on all of us!

Skye writes true stories of hope and victory . . . and I encourage you to read just how it is that her true life accounts can be filled with so much hope and victory.

Skye is a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, an aunt, grandmother ... "Nanee" and has an dentical twin sister named Raine. Skye is also a "Believer" and a best friend to many.

Skye is a survivor and a living miracle, as she tells us in her own words that God had rescued her from the ravages of alcohol and drugs many years ago.

Dearest Skye, I want to send out this Hug here this day to you to thank you for letting your light shine so brilliantly before men, thereby, glorifying our sweet Lord God! My prayer is that you will continue to allow your light to shine. In reading your lovely hubs, I felt a strong bond to you, dearest Skye.

Skye is no Stranger to the Storms in Life ... Bring the Rain

We all have to experience many hardships," they said, "before we enter the Kingdom of God.

— Acts: 14-22

Seasons in Life

As all of Skye’s followers know, Skye has faced many trials in her lifetime, and she knows that His Grace has carried her through and rescued her in her time of great need. In Skye’s profound write “Life And My Absent Husband”, Skye will touch your heart and leave you inspired.

Skye writes of the time when the God-fearing, sober and clean man she married went off to jail. Please enjoy this powerful piece where Skye writes of how she met this wonderful man she married and of falling in love and then ...

Here Skye points out that we all have trials, temptations and struggles to walk in this life. Not one of us knows what may come along the pathway of life, but when we step out in faith, she knows that all things are possible.

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

— James 5:16

Rocco... just Look at That Sweet Face!

Read all about Rocco, a beloved dog, who belongs to Skye’s youngest daughter, Abby, and the miracle, through prayer that happened.

In this glorious write here, Skye tells us that so much was going on in her life at the time, and how God used Rocco to help keep her happy, living life to the fullest and loving others. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this piece here and received a blessing, and I just know you will too without a doubt! It is so awesome how God will use the least likely of persons or even His little creature to bless us and keep us going in this life, which can be so brutal at time.

My favorite sentence in this tremendous write here by Skye is simply, “God is the heart softener.”

Planting Seeds and Removing Weeds

A lovely gift to me from Jackie, that I am sharing here with you lovely Skye, in your beautiful garden metaphor hub here.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

— Philippians 4:8

The Power of Our Thoughts

Skye writes of just how powerful our thoughts are and their effects on every aspect of our life.

In reading Skye’s insightful and beautiful work here in this hub, I am reminded of the above-quoted scripture where He tells us to think on those things which are true, lovely, excellent and worthy of praise. How beautiful!

This is the key in keeping our minds at perfect peace, as Skye already knows so well. One certainly comes away with a sense of peace just from reading Skye’s loving and gentle reminder here of how we can keep our thoughts in line with God’s Word, so that we may be rest assured of that peace, His peace, the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Please do take time to read this thought-provoking (good thoughts that is) write by Skye! You will not be disappointed by any means whatsoever.

. . . and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.

— Psalm 50:15

The Heart of a Mother

Skye's love for her daughter, Abby, is so apparent here in these profound writes linked here, where she is crying out to God to save her beautiful little baby who is on death's door.

Please read and see the great power of prayer revealed when a Mother prays for the life of her child.

You will not soon forget these heartrending hubs.

There will be those times in this lifetime that it comes down to humbling oneself before God, by falling on our faces before the Lord in prayer. Skye is forthright in stating here in this hub, “It was by His grace I survived my own demons.”

While reading these “chapters”, chills literally covered my body at what Skye describes occurred while crying out to the Lord God. Please read for yourself this miraculous account by Skye in her own words.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

— Psalm 139: 13-14

So Much in Love

Here Skye tells of the indescribable joy in becoming a grandmother, “Nanee”.

I know just how Skye feels, as I, too, experience such joy myself, for I am a “Nanee” as do so many other beautiful grandmothers that I know of here in HP Town!

It is a joy like no other, and please read about Skye’s falling in love all over again when Jayce is born. Just look how adorable is this little blessing from above!

Stains Are Washed Away

I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

— Philippians 4:13

Over 22 Years of Sobriety ... Praise Him!

Skye has a powerful testimony as to being sober for over 22 years. Please read as to just how she became victorious over the devastating effects the illness of alcoholism has on one's life.

Skye knows much as to this terrible illness as she has lived it for most of her life, for her parents were alcoholics and then her husband too.

Yellow is for Friendship ... Congratulations on 22 Years!

A beautiful gift from Jackie to me, and so I would love to share Jackie's amazing photography here with you dearest Skye!

Love never fails.

— 1 Corinthians 13:8

Helping or Enabling?

In another most powerful and true life account, Skye poses the question and discusses whether we are helping or enabling our loved ones. Skye's insightful hub here is indeed such a great topic to write on, especially for Skye, as she writes from her heart.

There is a fine line between helping our loved ones and enabling them, which actually harms our loved ones, to include ourselves.

I truly love everything about this wonderful hub here by Skye, as it gets right to the heart of the matter, and that is … how to truly help a loved one (including oneself) by not enabling, which causes more harm in the long run. No matter how hard it may be, it is what is truly best for all concerned.

Two sentences in Skye’s hub here that I especially love are (speaking of herself) …”It is in seeking I find, and in finding I am free. I am back on the Rock and humble pie.” How awesome!

Please know of the wisdom found in Skye's words by reading her insightful hub.

Life Without Anxiety

Deer at water's edge.
Deer at water's edge. | Source

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

— Philippians 4:6

How Wonderful it Is to Be Anxiety Free!

Do you believe that this is even possible, for one to be totally anxiety free?

In this beautiful write of His truths, Skye discusses just how one can truly experience such in this lifetime.

Skye tells us that she writes this message to share her hope, experience and joy; that you are touched just where your heart needs touching.

Please enjoy reading this beautiful message here that could very well change your life of stress to that of one of being totally free to be anxiety free!

Sweet Surrender

In Conclusion ...

Skye tells us she has learned to not take herself too seriously by laughing, not being too hard on herself, exercising and most importantly, praying! Yes, dearest Skye, I am constantly laughing at myself and praying too!

I am blessed to know you dearest Skye, just for who you are, and that is a beautiful child of our Lord God. May God continue to bless you, and I thank you once again for being a good and faithful servant of His and shining your light so brightly here in HP Town for so many years. May you continue to do so for many more years to come!

Please join me here in giving the lovely Skye a warm and tender hug from all of HP Town by leaving a comment below!

Thank you all here for sharing in the joy of spreading a little "Huglove" all around HP Town.

Now, we cannot forget about all of the wonderful and talented men here in HP Town, who deserve a sweet and gentle "Hug" too, so I plan on featuring male hubbers in the coming weeks.

God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      I have to say just like you I have enjoyed skye's comments on my hubs as she has visited and always with Godly words but you have done a fabulous job here showing me the wonderful writings of hers I will most definitely be reading! Great photos to make the reading enjoyable too, of skye and some of her world. Up, over and shared! I love it.

      Now I am off to comment on someones tasty German Apple Cake I just baked!

      Oh Faith!! What a wonderful tribute to this beautiful lady!!!

      She has sent me comments on my hubs in the past that just blow me away! THRILLED to see her as a "huggee"(is there such a word?:) from Faith Reaper!

      I just read her testimony about her husband and commented right away...an extremely profound, heavy write...it takes a lot of courage to share, but she did a phenomenal job!

      Your photos are off the charts. I SO admire the time you take to write hubs, comment on hubs, share and respond to numerous questions.

      Seeing your face popping up on the hubs is a 'day brightener' for all.

      Thank you for putting Skye in the spotlight, she SO deserves it. GOD BLESS YOU SO VERY, VERY much. Sparklea :)

      Oh Faith! What an amazing Hub,; so professionally presented, with such a diligent arrangement. Such a wonderful tribute to a woman I have not ' met ' yet, but this wonderful testimony to such a courageous woman, with such a beautiful family, will sure remedy that.

      Your discernment of the helping/enabling situation was such an important observation; the photos and videos are very nice, and the New Testament verses are so apt, and fitting.

      Is there such a woman who is as unselfish as you Faith? To meditate on the wonderful things you do for others, from such a kind and genuine heart, just leaves me in bits - How much of a pounding can one heart take, as it's fit to burst, whenever you shine your light upon such real, and lovely people in your ' Hug Of The Day ', with such well-deserving folk who deserve it? You've started a beautiful thing here.

      If you're going to Heaven, I want to go with you.

      Totally voting and sharing this!

      Sincerely,

      Romeo's Quill

      Hi Dearest Jackie,

      Yes, I just love Skye and she is always so very faithful to leave such loving comments on my hubs that have truly been a blessing to me!

      She has a beautiful heart of love for all no doubt about it.

      I was amazed to find out she has been here on HubPages for over four years now shining her light so brightly and always has a kind word to say.

      She has been through many tough trials in this life, but her faith is unwavering and she continues to place her trust in Him to get through whatever life has to throw at us.

      Yes, please do read her amazing work, for you will not be disappointed.

      I wish I was there to enjoy that German Apple Cake with you! : )

      God bless. Hugs, Faith Reaper

      Hi Sparklea!!!

      My sweet friend and my first "huggee" and I do not know if that is a word, but it is now! : )

      Yes, Skye is such a blessing here on HP to all and all truly receive a blessing when she comments on one's hubs.

      She has been through some pretty tough trials in this life and she does have a lot courage to share such trials with the strength she finds only in Him.

      Aw, thank you dearest Sparklea for your kind words towards me here. Now, so far, both my "huggees" are not only fanstatic commenters, but beautiful persons whose hearts are full of love for others.

      I always say the same thing when your beautiful smiling face pops in on one of my hubs to comment, and that always makes me smile, as I know I will receive a blessing!

      God bless you too. Hugs and love,

      Faith Reaper

      Faith, this is a lovely tribute to Skye. Without having read this, I just came across one of her comments in one of my hubs where she shares your same views on faith as you. Her advice to women is not to look for a man to complete them because only God can fill that longing or need and this is so true. I've also read this in some of your hubs Faith. I'm looking forward to reading more of her work. Skye seems like a fighter, someone who doesn't quit despite the many challenges she has faced. voted up!

      Hi Dearest Marlene (lovedoctor),

      Oh, how amazing and thank you for sharing that with me! Yes, that is the truth, even when we are in a good relationship, there will always be something missing, as that hole inside us seems to never be satisfied until we have that personal and intimate relationship with Him.

      If not, we will keep looking and looking and never be satisfied truly in this life.

      Skye is for sure a fighter and please do read some of her profound true life experiences, as you will be amazed as she has faced many trails in her lifetime, but is always so faithful to give Him praise for His love is unending and we can find strength in Him to get us through this life.

      Skye is not a quitter by no means as she relies on Him for her strength in times of trouble. It is most important to look up first before looking around at others for help. Seek Him first in all things.

      Thank you for leaving such amazing comments here! You're the best and you deserve the best this life has to offer. Never forget that truth precious heart.

      I appreciate the vote up.

      Hugs and much love to you in sunny Florida,

      She is a passionate writer of her true life amazing experiences.

      She is an angel to always leave such heartfelt comments on one's hubs too. I did not realize until recently just how long she has been on HP ... over four years!

      In the upcoming weeks I am going to give a "Hug" to some of the wonderful men here on HP who also deserve a "Hug" no doubt.

      Thank you for leaving such kind comments here.

      Skye has a lot of followers and is known here on HP for her profound true life experiences she shares in her writing and her longevity here on HP!. I just felt like I wanted to give her a "Hug" because she is always so kind and generous when commenting and for her continued, unwavering faith no matter what is going on in her life.

      I know there are so many wonderful writer I have yet to discover. I do discover new talent when hub hopping the classic way.

      I did not realize I was your muse! I don't believe you ever needed a muse to write as writing is your gift and we are blessed to be able to read such wonderful poetry form you here.

      Thank you again for you most generous comments as always.

      Oh, Marlene (locedoctor), I am so thrilled to hear all of this from you! You are such a joy to all. Back when I first started back reading in His Word, I started reading in the New Testament in one of the Gospels, John is a good one to start with. I love my women's devotional Bible, as it has little devotions in it especially written for women, plus it has Jesus' words in red, and I love that. He will reveal much to you when you meditate on His word. The only thing my favorite Bible started falling apart, so I use another now.

      Thank you once again for such generous and kind comments here. I am thrilled you are following Skye now.

      Hugs and love,

      You are an angel for sharing all of this with me. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

She is a very passionate writer of her true life experiences and holds nothing back, which is why I like her. Yes, please do read her when times permits, as I know you are one busy woman, always going around blessing people, and speaking of which, my husband just now brought the mail in and a precious angel friend sent me a package in the mail, but I have not opened it, as he just handed it to me . . . yes, you are one busy loving woman.

      Hi DDE,

      So lovely when you stop by to read! Thank you so very much for leaving such lovely comments here. Yes, Skye is a true person and a very special one at that, as you will read. Thank you for the pin and I am you glad you found this to be most interesting.

      Jackie Lynnley and I are alternating weekends in the giving of our "Hug" of the Day, which we began doing about two weeks ago. So, this is my second "Hug" of The Day to go out. We hope to spread a lot of love all around HP Town and it is our prayer that many receive a blessing from such "Hugs".

      Have a lovely Sunday. Hugs and love to you,

      Hi Dearest Leslie (ImKarn),

      I hope you had gotten the answer to your question you posed the other day about your account, etc.?

      Anyway, I am glad you are here this day. I had been out this afternoon for a bit. Oh, yes, isn't it amazing just how many writers are out there that we may not even have heard of before, probably into the thousands.

      That is why I try to hub hop (classic) every now and then, as that is where I do discover great talent that I have not yet read, or sometimes I find them in the comments they leave on those I follow's hubs.

      More importantly and back to the point, yes, please get to know lovely Skye, for she is a gem here on HP, and for over four years too! I know of her because of her gracious comments on my hubs. Yes, please check her out immediately dearest Leslie! You will not be disappointed, as she is no stranger to many trials in this life, but she is still able to love others and all with whom she comes into contact.

      She is a joy and a precious, precious woman with a loving heart no doubt about it. I could go on and on, well, I believe I have ...

      Aw, thank you for your kind words towards both of us.

      Bless you for sharing.

      Hugs and love,

      Faith Reaper

      My precious sister Faith Reaper. I have been off line for a few days. When I opened my feed this am I was surprised and glowing at the amount of comments I had. I had no idea you had written a tribute towards me until the fourth or fifth comment own. When we are down or feeling a bit low or a lot low Gods comes shining to remind us of His unfailing love. His supply is absolutely amazing. He loves to surprise His kids. Our Father knows just what, when and how He is going to send the needed love and encouragement. Oh He is a good and wondrous God. I am astounded at His resources. May we never underestimate our Father. He used you sweet heart and lovely faith to put a spark on my heart and new pep in my step. I had to stop reading the comments because my heart was pounding with gratitude. I needed a breather. God has placed so many on these hub pages that are a breath of life and energy to hearts that so need touching. The hugs are phenomenal. I do not have the words ( me out of words) to express the heartfelt gratitude of your actions. To take the time to read, comment and write a hub and place pictures is overwhelming. I do not feel worthy Faith but I know that God so loves us and has place in each one gifts to use us in this lost world. You are a true woman after Gods heart girl. I am so honored to know you. I just love you sister. The first time I met you I knew you by your fruits and you bear much. You are a gem in Gods chest of treasures faith reaper. I can't see what I type the tears are welded up in my eyes. It is all good precious one. I am humbled and I feel like falling to my knees in gratitude for the gifts God has bestowed to me. Your comments are a reminder of our faithful God who never will leave us nor forsake us. Hebrews 3:13 Faith you truly are a gift from above. I know that God will bless your works 30 60 and 100 fold even a thousand fold for your diligent honor and love in Him. This idea that you and darling Jackie came about is just the tip of the iceberg. God is going to use it in many ways to reach out to the hearts that need touching. No wonder we are given eternity we will need that to go from sister to brother and all around. God has plans that we can not even imagine when He returns. It will be glorious that we know. It is all about Jesus and what He has done for us. He laid down His life so we could have abundant life.

      A world without sin. Who would not want it? My oh my girl we do have our work cut out for us. In Christ we can do all things, Amen. If we fall over He will come in and pick us up in His perfect time. He will not let us lay down to more than we can bear to be tempted. That is such a huge promise. Your hub leads me to be reminded of His everlasting promises to those that believe. There are thousands and thousands.

      My heart goes now to the lost and hurting. So many do not know Jesus or of the amazing power God has given to each of us through the blood of His son Jesus Christ. Your testimony and mine and the hundreds that share are living proof that God is alive. His word is living. To be chosen as a time as this is so amazing it is hard to grasp.

      Faith I will close sending galores of hugs your way. One day we will meet and what a glorious day that will be. I ask the Lord to Bless you in mighty ways for His Glory and purpose. He has plans for you and me and His that are just amazing. Easy not likely but like Paul says keep on keeping on to the crown of glory that awaits us. In all humility and love I thank you. You do shine girl in the love of Christ. U can U will I know it. Phil 4:13. Thank you Father for putting Faith on my path and on these pages to reach out in your love. She is your beloved. We are your beloved. May we all strive to work and bring others to your love and salvation. In Christ Jesus.

      One big PS. The enemy of this world has tried to put the skids on my writing big times. He is a liar. Anyone that reads this know that no matter how far you may have think you have come God wants to use you. You have a testimony to share. Your words could safe a life. God forgives our sins and makes us new. He will do the work. Do not be discouraged that comes from the father of lies, the devil himself. We have power in the name of Jesus to cast him out. Love you so much. In Christ Jesus only because He loved us first can too love. Hugs galore to all.

      Dear Faith,

      I am so glad that you and Jackie Lynnley have started these Hug of the Day hubs. You are introducing me to the most wonderful hubbers. I look forward to reading Skye's work. I think that it is so cool that her name is Skye and her sister's name is Raine.

      There are so many who talk the talk, but do not walk the walk. You my friend walk the walk and do so with such grace.

      Truly Blessed by all that you do,

      Hi Dearest Skye!!!

      See there, this is why I love you so and want to hug you so, just for your loving spirit here and sharing of your golden heart of love to all!

      I am so thrilled it was a joyful surprise, as we try extra hard to keep it a secret. Yes, we serve a wonderful God. And I am glad He used me to put that extra spark in your heart and pep in your step! I pray I have written all here correctly to His glory.

      I always pray about this before I make a decision as to whom to give a "Hug" and He gave me your name, and I suppose it is because you are one good and faithful servant no doubt.

      It is funny (not really funny) that you added that PS there at the end, as the enemy has been distracting me so much here lately and doing everything in his power to get me to not write anything to glorify our sweet Lord God, but I will be obedient to Him when He gives me something to share to His glory, honor and praise.

      Skye, I am just amazed that you have been here on HP for over four years now giving of your love to all and blessing all when you arrive to comment, as we see here this day.

      I pray that you continue to allow your light to shine so brightly before men, so that He may be glorified.

      Hugs galore back to you in addition to this one big "Hug" here.

      I hope you received a blessing, as I know I receive a blessing in knowing you here on HP.

      Yes, that will be a wonderful day when we will see each other again in that place He has prepared for us, our true home, as this world is temporal, and passing away.

      God bless you. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      Yes, I just love her name, Skye, as well as her sister's name, Raine!

      That is pretty awesome.

      You are so generous here sweet friend with your comments towards me. I am so humbled.

      Faith My sister oh yes indeed I have been touched and BLESSED beyond measure with your beautiful hub of love. By the way I love huggee. So I was the hugee recipient and I am honored to know you sister. Your pages jump out to me by the Holy Spirit who works in you to touch so many lives. You are a gem in the chest of treasures dear precious child of God. A five star I might add. A diamond shining its light. You are a blessing faith and keep on in Him. I know you will Phil 4:13.

      The enemy is a liar. He trembles at the name of Jesus. He does not want the children of God to spread the love or hugs or message of salvation. He may try to get us down but we have been given the power of Christ. We are victorious. We will not stay down long. When we rise up took out the Holy Spirit has moved on our hearts in His Love to fight the battle and working to saving souls.We got the power girl right? In the name of Jesus Christ. His blood has us covered. We are so Blessed. I just love ya girl. God does love to surprise us and that I was. I am still stunned. I am still answering comments to my hubs. Because you are faithful faith reaper I am so Blessed. Hugs galore. (From huggee of the day, Skye) I am honored and truly touched by all. You are a love. The fruits of His love bear much in you sweetie. Skye.

      Dearest Skye,

      Aw, bless you sweetest daughter of the King. I am sorry I was not on-line last night, so I am just now getting to this lovely comment.

      Thank you for your love and encouragement as I needed to hear such this day and, yes, the enemy comes at us at times like a roaring lion and other times so deceptive and whispers those false imaginations in our ears, that we are not truly making any kind of difference. But when my sweet Lord tells me otherwise or gives me a word, then I have no choice but to write it.

      It is most likely a time when I must be mindful to put on that full armor of God, for when His word goes out, it never comes back void.

      Praise Him! To God be the glory!

      Thank you dearest Skye, again, and this is the very reason why He gave me your name to "Hug" as you never stop proclaiming His goodness in this fallen world. He is love, divine love ... that agape love and nothing compares to it, nothing! I have been holding back a hub, waiting for the right time to publish on that one who accuses, and this just may be the right time to publish it!

      Have a blessed day sweet child of God.

      God bless you. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      faith reaper. I have not answered so many comments in my four years, at one sitting. Yes I am BLESSED girl. Many new hubbers have come my way. Many old hubbers have come for visits. Make new friends keep the old one is silver, the other gold. Old brownie song. Do you know of it. I love it never forgot it. That's a shock in and of itself. tee hee. That was a long time ago.

      Gods love is contagious girl. My eyes have blurred vision from reading and typing. I gotta take a break. JK, not.

      You go for that hub dear sister. God knows we all need to hear it often. Many do not understand the battles are spiritual warfare. We will face battles. The enemy does not want us to post the Love of God. As you said he is tricky. The good news we have been given the power. Jesus defeated him already. We need to dress in our armor each morning and keep it on. If we miss it Gods grace has us. He will never leave nor forsake us. What a promise. Wow. What ever you write will be perfect because the Spirit of God abides in you sister. You are a mighty soldier girl. In Gods perfect time your hub will be on these pages. God is so wonderful His mercies and grace new each day. You have a wonderful day faith reaper. I love you girl. Keep on in Him, U will I know it. Phil 4:13 Hugs galore sista.

I do love to write what He has done in my life too. He is an amazing God!

      I have heard of that brownie song, but I was never a brownie. That happens to me a lot ... that and song from long ago will pop into my head just out of the blue for one reason or another.

      Yes, have been having to put on that full armor of God here lately, but that just reminds me that we all need to put it on first thing each and every morning no doubt!

      Love you too and thank for the encouragement here as always. Yes, we can do all things through Him who gives us strength. Thanks for that scripture.

      Faith, you're incredible! I love this series that you've turned out, it really is something special. Up, awesome, beautiful, interesting, useful, and shared x 2. Your name fits you perfect. Skye is incredible, a true follower of the word, as you Faith. Both of you are inspirational, I mean that, from the bottom of my heart. The work you do on Hubpages changes lives, please know that. As for myself, you have taught me many things and you have increased my faith "Faith." I can only imagine what else you do. You and Skye have a lot in common, both proud and sincere. We all are lucky to know you both. God Bless you both.

      Dearest Ricky (thelyricwriter)

      I truly believe in my heart that the Lord sent you here this very night to comment here for I was having one of those nights where I am wondering why I am here and whether I am making any kind of difference by writing or if I am losing my focus as to why I initially started to write here a year and five months ago.

      You have blessed me this night more than you will ever know and have brought tears of joy.

      Skye is truly a wonderful person who glorifies the Lord in all aspects of her life no matter come what may!

      Thank you for sharing all of this with me this night. I praise Him for you dearest Ricky and give all glory and praise to Him for your increase in faith.

      I do feel a kindred spirit to Skye for she has that very intimate and personal relationship with the Lord without a doubt.

      I am blessed to know you and call you friend, as well as all other lovely writers and friends I have met here and blessed beyond measure to know. I am glad the Lord brought me here to share whatever He would have me to share.

      I will be in prayer this night praising Him and asking Him to reveal just exactly what I am to do next.

      I appreciate all the votes up and across and thank you so much for sharing x 2 : )

      God bless you too precious heart.

      Hugs and agape love to you always, Faith Reaper

      Dear Faith. Precious sister I stopped in today to read again your kind words. New words seemed to jump out at me. I have tears. All good sister. I am inspired to thank you again for your diligence and hard work child of God in putting this lovely hub together. I am humbled Faith Reaper before God. As you so well know He loved us first, so we too could love. To be His chosen vessel is an honor. There are days I am amazed how He has taken and molded me from where I was. He is the love of loves. He is the Royalty. He is the King of Kings.

      I thank Him again today for leading me to hubpages and meeting the most amazing sisters and brothers who have encouraged me and moved on my heart to keep going. The enemy likes to tell us we are no darn good. We know it is a lie but can still get pretty hard on ourselves. We are not enough not good enough so on. Then comes shining a dear word from the Lord. He has used one of His dear children to touch us just where we need touching. I was having a bit of a down day. That is about to change dear girl.

      So your hub reminded me of whose I am. No weapon formed against me will prosper. That is a promise from our Amazing Almighty Creator. You too remember that Faith when you get the blues. If God be for us than who can be against us? We do not fight against flesh and blood but spiritual principalities!! The devil hates that we share the good news and are lights.

      You are so dear and I can't wait to meet you one day and give you a hug. I send prayers to the Lord right now that He gives you massive favor on all your endeavors. I pray for your grandchildren to prosper and be in good health and your husband to thrive with His new knee. So this hug is for you girl.

      Thank you again for sharing that I love the Lord and in Him is the victory. I just love you. Skye.

      Aw, Dearest Skye,

      Thank you for your hug here and I appreciate prayers for my family too. You are such a good and faithful servant of our sweet Lord.

      Yes, our sweet Lord is all of that indeed. And you are so right about the enemy who attempts to do such as he truly hates it when we do share the "good news" so we will be even more so under attack, and we must be mindful each day to put on that full armor of God.

      Oh, so sorry about your down day precious heart, but so glad that it is about to change! Let us be mindful to keep looking up, for our source of true joy is found only in Him and Him alone.

      May His peace rain down on you dearest Skye, and may you feel His loving arms wrapped around you, holding you close, comforting you at this very moment.

      Hugs and love to you this day and each day dearest daughter of the King,

      Faith Reaper

      Goodness, Faith Reaper. I simply cannot keep up with those I follow on HP even though I would like to. But - my email notifications filter all of the new hub alerts to a folder where I still have them. So I try to read the newest ones first and then read some of the older ones, too. Anyway, glad I found this sweet tribute!

      Hi Dear Shan,

      I understand completely as my in box was in the tens of thousands of emails from HP. I just deleted them all recently. You can actually turn off your email notifications, but still receive the one main one from HP where they give you your recent notifications. Nellieanna once told me that you can just not get any email notifications. But what she does is just go under her account statistics and "following" and look at the Hubber one and go down the list to see what your followers have published recently, but only the most recent one show up. So that is a great way to know that your followers have published a hub and then while on their hub space, you can check and see what you have missed, if anything

      I am glad you found this tribute too, and found it sweet, Skye is sweetheart no doubt and on fire for the Lord.

      I have not been able to be on HP much here of late due to real life stuff ... you know how that goes.

      Blessings to you and yours for a wonderful weekend. I hope to catch up soon with everyone too.

      Dearest friends and followers of our fellow Hubber Skye, I just wanted to share this tribute here to her as I just learned she has gone on to be with the sweet Lord God, who she so loved with all of her heart.

      Skye blessed so many with her genuine and heartfelt comments she left on hubs she read and in her beautiful writing to glorify the sweet Lord. I will never forget her.

      My condolences go out to her family and friends. I choose to celebrate the beautiful life of Patti aka Skye2day here on HubPages.

      Hi Dear Word,

      Skye blessed so many here for so many years in leaving her special comments on all hubs she read and in her wonderful hubs to praise the Lord God for all He has done in her life.

      I know she is with our sweet Lord right now and I look forward to seeing her again one day.

      She was a precious daughter of the King. My prayers go out to her family and friends.

      I appreciate you stopping by to celebrate a beautiful life.

      God bless you

      Hi Dear Maria,

      Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. You are so kind.

      Well, I wrote this for Patti a couple of years ago when she was more active here on HubPages, and now I am so happy I did so for she was able to read it and know how much she blessed everyone here in this wonderful community via her writing of her true life experiences and her special and heartfelt commenting.

      I know without a doubt Patti had a most glorious homecoming ...her true home!

      Hi Shyron,

      Oh, I wish you had known her too, as she would have made you feel so special and loved. She didn't have an easy life at times but she always placed her full faith and trust in the Lord God to help her through all of life's struggles. There's no telling how many lives she touched with her powerful testimony and witness.

      Blessings and hugs to you, sweet friend
