My faith is very important to me but not to other people I understand that ,I will say that I am a follower of Jesus Christ, and I love the Lord with all my heart . I dont push my religion on other people .

I rate as soon as I receive the swap if I have not rated you it is because I have not received your swap . My mail is sometimes slow because I live in a extremely small town . I feel this should be common courtesy but needs to be said . If you mail a swap late and dont notify me then I will rate down because I feel as though we are all adults here and you should know when the send date is and if you cant send by that date then you should contact your partner and let them know you are going to be late or dont join the swap at all .I feel that you disrespect the swap , the co-ordinator of the swap and your swap partner when you send late and dont have the common courtesy to notify them that you are going to be late . Yes , i do understand things happen but how hard is it to send an email and let someone know ? And frankly to get a swap and not give in return is stealing and I equate a flaker with a theif .
Hopefully this will never contain any names but you just never know . seexlorvexrun :Thinking of you card swap she flaked on me and now she is partially suspended so I dont think she will be back .
I will not lower myself to other people's standards because that is of satan and I will pray for them and their superior attitude . I was named by someone as a difficult swapper and they were the ones who got me out of my sickbed one hour after being home from the hospital !!! I got up out of my sickbed and took the pkg to the post office and they had the nerve to accuse me of being rude LOL !!! That has to take the cake !!! However I will not put their name here but if you want that persons name I will gladly give it to you !!! I mean what a drama queen !!!
I always send my swaps out in the first day or two after checking my partners profiles for likes or dislikes . I never wait till the last minute to send out a swap , to me that is borrowing time and it can get away from you so quickly . also if you dont receive a swap from me within a reasonable amount of time then please contact me before rating . I ALWAYS SEND MY SWAPS !!!! I am also generous with hearts especially if I see that the person did bother to read my profile and took some time and effort for the swap .
•Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
