    Well said Joy!!! Thank goodness God says He finds our “works” perfect , or complete, where we are in time with our spiritual growth in Him!!! It’s a process. There’s a steep learning curve but we move forward, failing at times, dusting our self off and continuing to put on the beautiful, spotless robe of Christ’s righteousness! Steady on my friend! You’re a writer “perfect” in your time but even so I’ll take you up on that grand birthday celebration

      I think you need to write a story for my blog one day. You always have such good comments. Thanks for your encouragement. I like that, “steady on” phrase. You are right. Timing is everything. I can’t wait to see you at my 107th.

    I have read every blog and I find myself drawn into your world and smiling every time. To me, that means you have made it as a writer! Now, to get you published. Glad to be a part of your journey.

    I believe that the fun you put into your writing makes me smile, laugh, and inspires me to get back into my writing (I will I promise) !
    I think I’ve read all your blog posts and love each one for the unique story it is itself !
    I look forward to your 107th birthday party… can I bring a side dish??

    It is always with great anticipation that I wait for your next blog. You ave a style of writing that captures the reader from the first sentence.when I was teaching writing to my fifth graders i and they always faced two difficult times in the writing process. The first sentence and the last sentence. Both equally difficult.
    Many years ago I kept a journal. I was faithful and found something to include just about every day. They in 1995 I found journaling to no longer necessary. This is the same thing I experienced with my painting. The pleasure of creating art lost so much of its luster and I put my brushes away. I ask myself over and over if I’ll ever start painting again. That remains to be seen.
    About three months ago I purchased a new journal and I thought I would record my thoughts and a record of the events of this journey Annette and I are on.
    This is not supposed to be about me but rather about you. Yes, I enjoy your writing.I also enjoy the pictures from your road trips. Remember that thee is a special place in my heart for Joy Walker, my friend and adopted little sister. I’d never turn down a cup of coffee with you.
    All the best,
    Dale (Keeper and Guardian of Annette)

      Thanks for the kind words, Dale. Journaling is such a great task. It’s fun to go back to read old posts. You are so good at painting, I’d hate to think that you may never paint again. Do it for you. Do it for Annette. Do it because you have something to say. It’s not too late to start something again. Pick up that journal. Pick up that brush. It may be just what you need to get through this journey you and Annette are on.
      Forever your little sister, and Annette’s little buddy.

    I feel like we go through seasons, as somethings interest us at different times in our lives. I remember when you rode your bike to work, diligently. Then you were cycling at a gym and teaching the class. Now you’re writing. All of these things you do really well, and are an inspiration for the rest of us. Can’t wait to see what you do next!

      You are so right, Sherry. I am loving this season of writing and I still love riding. Combining the two loves seems to be working for me. Thanks for the compliments. One day maybe we will be able to combine our talents. Who knows what the future will bring.
      I appreciate you reading and commenting.
