Knock me over with a feather :o

After reading Deb's clarification on the Twilight Years I didn't think I stood a chance. And it took five long days before I even picked up my first comment, so I logged on today more to see how my wife and sons had done! So a big thank you to the judges for being willing to think outside of the box.

And well done to the other winners especially those excellent writers in the ECs list. That's a great way to start the quarter.

I Give Thanks to God

Post by OldManRivers » Thu Jul 16, 2009 1:04 pm

I give thanks to God for all the entries I read this week and a bit of sadness that I ran out of time to enjoy and be blessed by the rest.

To all the selected writers, enjoy, enjoy the recognition, you certainly deserve such honor.

And to all the others, give a listen to that inner grace and you will hear the applause of heaven. And enjoy, enjoy, enjoy the thanksgiving and praise of the Lord.

Love y'all bunches,

jim mcwhinnie :thankssign
May God's gentle grace be with you.

Congratulations to all these wonderful writers. And, Ann, it's especially good to read your work again.
