      Yes and it's a real bummer. Ive been away for quite a while, and I come back to find not only Brighten seems to have left, but I had to log in to express my sadness over seeing Cassia go, and I feel bad that I think I just missed her by less than a day.
      I know Rens left and why, but she's doing REAL good and says Hi in a roundabout way.
      It probly has done us both good not to spend so much time posting on chatforums, and it was becoming really unfruitful and distracting for both of us, but yes, she is very much loved and missed here, ..... she's pretty busy with the things the Lord has laid out for her at this time, tho, but she's doing an outstanding job handling it all and I give her alot of credit. We're seeing how the summer unfolds and keeping the faith, but it's not easy of course. But God is with us, and His will is perfect and WILL be done, and we both know we can trust in Him, so we're being of good cheer as best we can as Jesus said to. Ruth I never got to know so much unfortunately, mostly just a timing thing, but I think she is here, same with ValleyGal and KrispyKreme lol I mean Krissy Cakes, and of course Lamm is here, too, and I apologize but I know Im missing more, but anyway .....
      If it would make you happy, I'll post for the girls team in the numbers games!
      *ducks from tomato-throwing
      Lol, jk,
      But maybe with the warmer weather, ppl are just busier with other things.
      God bless you, ~Jo~ , and Jesus loves you.

      Wilhemena and Toetapping still log in from time to time.

      Maybe no one is asking them any questions so they aren't replying...which means they aren't posting. Conversations will keep people returning and that means asking them questions.

      Jo,

      JUST speaking for me (one male), I do not in any sense "discount" what women say. In fact, in all honesty, on the 'net, I'm rarely aware of the gender of the poster at all. I've been "corrected" a LOT over the years for referring to someone by the wrong gender.... it's not that I'm unaware or uncaring, I just don't view posts as "female" or "male." BTW, my 'boss' is a female - in a world where there aren't a lot of females. I don't think I relate to her as a woman at all (positively or negatively). She's very smart, very capable.... she keeps us guys on tract (which ain't no insignificant job) and provides EXCELLENT leadership and insight. We all appreciate her a lot.

      THAT said, I do recognize that on rare occasions, men and women just speak about different things. I may not reply, NOT because I view the poster as lacking value (according to their gender or any other criteria) but simply because the issue isn't something I have any reply to. So, yes I'm sure sometimes I DO "skip" a post and not reply..... but it's entirely unrelated to my devaluing women or feel they have no voice.

      I apologize for anything that may have caused you to feel unvalued by me.

      I'm sorry you feel a bit alone. We need to work to get more active female participants!

      Don't think like that, ~Jo~ , it's just the sign of the times and the general state of chatforums. Your friendship and opinions have always been valued by me, and I know quite a few others who would agree. Try not to take it to heart or too personally. Remember too, that there are alot of 'guests' and you never know who might be reading or admiring you from afar, and may be influenced by you someday to sign up and join in, or maybe even get saved bc of something you write, wont that be excellent?! Try to keep encouraged, Jesus loves you, that's for always.
      Meanwhile, I'll try to send out the 'Calling all gals' alert
      (Yeah...cause that always works)
