    Brenda has a new word prompt for us, but she has very sad news to share. Ron has passed on. She will be taking a break for a few weeks. But she still gives us a prompt to work on. She still gives highlights of fellow writers' responses to the previous word prompt, "Respect." Let us show empathy, love and respect, and on top of all, convey condolence to the courageous and strong girl, Brenda Arledge. Here is the link to her article:

      Thanks for sharing this Rosina!
      I am so sorry to hear about the passing away of Ron. My heartfelt condolences, Brenda.
      I can’t imagine, how you could gather all this courage to write another weekly word prompt article, in these sad circumstances. Sincere appreciation for you, and your commitments.
      Be strong, and we are all with you in this difficult time.
      Thank you for the highlights of the previous prompt, and providing the new prompt, Puzzle.
      Take care. Prayers and Peace.

      I am so sorry to hear about Ron’s death. Please accept my deepest condolences, Bredz. May God give you the strength to bear this grief and give you the strength you need. Ameen!

      May His Soul Rest In Peace. Ameen!

      May God grant him a restful sleep in the grave and place him in the shadow of His mercy. Indeed He Loves us very much.

      I'm at a loss for words to comfort you, my friend. But trust me that the upcoming reunion will have no separation. My eyes welled up with tears as I read your article. I am with you in this tough time. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. I wish I could be there to give you a warm hug. Trust Him more in these trying times. He will never let you break, He will take care of you, He loves us. Ron is now in a better place, free of pain; God just did not want him to be in pain and illness. He is Gracious. When He will reunite you and Ron this time, there will be no sadness, no pain, no diseases, and no separation.

      Take care and rest for some time you need it the most. Forget about prompts and everything else; instead, focus on yourself and take some time to relax. Only He can provide you comfort and Peace, so talk to Him. Indeed He loves us all.

      I never thought I'd have to write this to you ever. I can't express myself well that how much sad I am to hear about it and trust me I don't have any words that could bring you comfort you need. May God protect you. Ameen!

      Sending you Blessings and comforting Hugs.

      Thank you so much Ravi.

      Losing Ron has been hard, but dealing with many obstacles has thrown me a bit off course.

      Hopefully I'll bounce back when time allows.

    So i get a message this morning that this article has been snipped after all these weeks.

    Hubpages has removed my link to Bill Holland's book which I mentioned.

    I don't get it...it is relevant & he is a Hubber.

  21. Jodah profile image91

    That is a shame, Brenda. I imagine they snipped it to move the article to LetterPile. It has happened to me a lot. I was told that in most cases LetterPile doesn’t allow Amazon links.

      Brenda Arledgeposted 12 months agoin reply to this

      John....
      They have snipped things from my articles before to move to LetterPile, but my word prompts never go there because of all the links I share from Hubbers.

      So let's guess again.

    2. Brenda Arledge profile image81
      Brenda Arledgeposted 12 months agoin reply to this

      John...
      I've put the mention of Bill Holland's book back in this article.

      Time will tell if they leave it.

    I have:

    John Hansen
    Diana L. Pierce
    Misbah Sheikh
    Gianella Labrador
    Vidya D Sagar
    Alyssa Nichol
    Pamela Oglesby

    P.S. ~ I know there are a few for other word prompts too...I will get to them.
    I believe Pamela Oglesby & Alyssa Nichol both have some work they've written.
