Two words we should eliminate from our vocabulary are ALWAYS and NEVER. What we say or feel today may change tomorrow. These words have such a “finality” to them. So I am not going to use these words…at least not now, ha

I have been thinking and praying for some time as to whether or not to continue podcasting and posting them to my website, dearlanadee.com. It costs money. And let’s face it. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see my stats ( number of those who stop by and listen). The numbers do not warrant the expenditure. 

I have always said if I could make a difference in even a few lives it has been worth it. But according to MY calculations, even those “few” have dwindled. LIFE has made it even harder for those faithful to my podcast, to listen or visit on my website. I totally understand.

So this is what I plan to do:

1. I am going to stop posting to the dearlanadee.com website. after this letter. So if there is anything, any previous podcast you haven’t heard or want to download, NOW is the time to do that. The website will disappear at the beginning of September.

2. I hope to continue to post my thoughts, songs, AND podcasts on Facebook. Remember, if you are not my “friend” on facebook It is simply a matter of requesting me to add you as a friend. Of course, you may need a Facebook account to do that. Free of course. To become my “friend” you need simply go to: https://www.facebook.com/dearlanadee and request to be added as a friend.

3. I ALSO have a Facebook page STRICTLY for dearlanadee podcasts and messages etc. It is called: https://www.facebook.com/YourFriendLanadee/ You simply visit there and ‘LIKE” my page and you will automatically get the updates. 

3. I would still like to keep podcasting. I am praying about that. . BUT all the history, years of previous podcasts etc from the site will be gone and I wanted to at least let you know in advance.

4. ALSO: The new  Podcasts will be in video form. I have no choice. (SORRY) but you can always play and just “listen” because unless I become REALLY brave I probably won’t be videoing LIVE, just adding pictures you might like to see. It is located on YOUTUBE. If you visit this link, you can “subscribe” and automatically get a notice when I post. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOTM1lARAatN4RnG7hOV6lw

5. So you see, I may not really be leaving…. just closing down the website that holds my podcasts. My email is still dearlanadee@gmail.com You are always invited to write me. I answer!  If any of the instructions above are confusing…write me and I will try and help you 🙂

Letting go of my website if very hard for me. I will miss posting to the website. I will miss checking daily (hourly) to see if anyone has visited. I began posting in 2007. That is 9 years this October. I do NOT  not give up easily as you can imagine. So PLEASE remember me on 9/9. That is the date I am to pay or leave. And it is time to leave. Even though I can still continue podcasting, I know I will have a tear in my eye when I say goodbye to dearlanadee.com.  I DO hope some of you will choose to  join me on Facebook or youtube.  But even if you don’t, I will think of you, pray for you and continue to wish you God’s greatest blessings upon your life!

I will ALWAYS remain your friend,

Sitting, Reflecting, And Singing

Posted in Bible, Cover Song, Dear lanadee, Jesus  by: lanadee
July 31st, 2016

As I sit here, still resting the foot I injured 44 days ago (YES I am counting) I have been doing a lot of reflecting. There is truly only one who can change this troubled world. Only one who can truly fill our days with joy and peace, So while I am learning a great deal about patience I am singing. There is a city where our Lord lives in Glory. I am excited about seeing Him. How about you?

I Bowed On My Knees And Cried Holy

I am currently working on podcast 96…stay tuned!

Something to Think About:

Emerson said, “The hero is no braver than the ordinary man; he just fights five minutes longer.” Perseverance in the face of difficulty is a quality that is indispensable in the lives of those who leave a lasting mark on this world”

I am currently working on Podcast 95.  It should be ready soon.  In the mean time here is a picture of Peaches.  It was NOT her finest hour 🙁

Hello, I hope this podcast finds you well and happy.  Are you enjoying our beautiful weather? I am.

I had a visit to the Dr. recently and he assessedd my present health situation. I think he said “big baby” under his breath but I can’t be sure.

I’ve finally found the way to deal with my “to do” list.

I gave away Peaches. Don’t hate me.

Is my Codependence getting out of hand?

Dear Lanadee Podcast 91 Sandpaper Living Song: Fill My Cup Lord

Posted in Advice, Change, Christmas, Dear lanadee, Diet, Disapointment, Forgiveness, Heaven, Hope, Jesus  by: lanadee
December 11th, 2015

It’s Holiday time. Thanksgivings gone and Christmas is on the way. It is a wonderful time of the year.

Michael and I have been keeping busy and continuing on with the dieting. ONE of us does better than the other. But as my grandson’s continually remind me, “It’s NOT a race”. That is what they are told when they get too competitive.

During the preparation of this podcast, my heart was saddened at the news that my “spiritual father” had passed away. Vic Eliason was many things to many people. His heart’s desire was to lead as many people to Christ as he could and he was a true mentor to me.

Has anyone ever rubbed you the wrong way? It just might be they are really sandpaper.
