    Hi Rose! Sorry to use this space for a technical question, but how do I change the e-mail address you use to send me blog notifications? I tried to find this out some other way, but couldn’t find it. Thanks! 🙂

    Hi Rose,
    Your writings are beautiful. Thank you for connecting with me through Linkedin. I’ve signed up to receive your blogs and look forward to reading more. I’m interested in your writings about British Home Children, I came to Canada as an adult, but in a sense was a ‘home’ child since I was raised in an orphanage in England, and experienced all the terrors of the invasions. But Praise God for His hand on my life:)

  5. Hello Rose, It’s so nice to meet you here. I love your story. It resonates with my writer’s heart, and you are a sister in the Lord. Besides that, we both have the same lovely name. You have a beautiful blog and I’m really enjoying persuing it. May God bless you and every word you write for His glory.

    Hello Ms. Rose,

    I am not sure whether or not you are the one who wrote the wodnerful story “Manitoulin Connections,” from ‘O Canada’ book of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. The story, however, touched my heart and soothed my soul in a very positive way.

    Best regards,

  8. Debbie – Thanks for pointing out that my bio has disappeared. It used to show up at the end of each post. WordPress loses it settings once in a while. I’ll correct that. Also, thank you for your kind comments about my writing. Encouraging words like yours keep writer like me clicking away on our laptops.
    Thanks for your blessing . . . Rose

    Hi there 🙂 I have been reading your blogs for over 2 hours now and I cannot find your name anywhere. I think I started from emails from the Word Guild, but I can’t even trace you back to them. I’m surprised to see page after page of your stories and nowhere can I see your name.

    By the way, your stories are wonderful, and I found myself wanting to keep reading the next one as the titles all seemed to say they had answers to my questions or needs. Bless you for writing and I really enjoyed your voice. Every sentence smooth, inviting, understandable, not once did I have to get out the dictionary, and I felt uplifted, peaceful, and like I knew a little bit more about God with every story. I also sensed your true love for Him and your passion to write for others benefit not your own. You truly are a blessing and an ambassador of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Blessings to you, and thank you for blessing me,
    Debbie 🙂
