  1. Thank you so much, Stephen! They are addictive. I’m going to spend some time reading through your back catalog this week. I noticed you had done that for another blogger I follow, and I think it’s a lovely thing to do.😊

    1. Thank you Tanya, and it has been an amazing part of my journey here to do it. Not only to learn more about the individual author, but to respect them and to really appreciate the humanity that connects us. Sort of a lofty thing, I suppose, but it feels meaningful to me. The hard part will soon be keeping the focus on only one as there are many I want to get to you included!

      1. I’m humbled that you even think of me in that list. There are some amazing writers on WP. I find inspiration from them every single day. Time is always the issue in reading blogs. That said, I’m looking forward to reading from your back catalog, Stephen! I’ll leave a few comments over there as I go. I hope you inspire more bloggers to do the same.

      1. I find that what I write is also very applicable to me as well. I can always try to improve. I’m all for learning from my own words as they come from scripture.

      2. I understand what you mean, Tanya. We strive to teach things of social and moral value to our children, as well as, show them in our own lives to others. Have a groovy day, my friend!

  2. Odd story … I remember the last time I ran carefree as a child does. I was about 14 on a well-worn path in back of our house. I hit a sawed-off branch with my ankle and it bled for hours … I still have the scar. I never ran again without holding back from fear. Nice poem and photo! Jane

      1. I know. It’s always warmer inside when we shut the garage door, shut the inside doors, and pour a nice warming glass of something … I have a little plastic spring I then place in the glass …
