I agree with the other comments, and with your post, Robin. Once the words are spoken, there is no way to recall them. Even saying you're sorry doesn't eradicate the hurt they cause. Although I have been guilty of saying things I shouldn't, I do try to say I am sorry, and then try not to repeat the offense. I love the quote, "Keep your words sweet. Someday you may have to eat them."

I love seeing the old pictures, Robin. Being relatively new to the area, it is always a treat to learn more history about my chosen home. Thank you for sharing.

I've been reading Streams in the Desert for years. It was gift from my late husband. I too find God speaking to me through it's pages. Beautiful words. I too caught special meaning in those passages. Praying your trial brings the right fruit, and then peacefully releases you.

Thank you, Robin for hosting James. Always great to meet other authors and hear about their new projects. My husband gave me a Kindle for Christmas and I am always looking for additional reading material. Thanks to this post, I can add another book, and hopefully more. Thank you, James!

That is one eye-catching cover. Your publisher knows their stuff! And, 66 books! Wow! Congratulations, Robin, on all counts.

I agree, Robin, creativity does spill over into more than one area of life. It is fun to explore new ways of expressing it. Hope you get a chance to re-discover your passion for art too.

I love the glimpses and peeks you share, Robin. It whets our appetites for more, igniting our curiosities to see how it all blends into the story. We are having just as much fun as you are! Thank you!

It is wonderful when the story seems to write its self! After the tough push with the last one, this is a perfect change, inspiring and encouraging. Nice to have sunshine after the rain.

You are so right about reader expectations. We pick certain genre because we enjoy the basics of the stories, delight in the variances, and still come to the expected, and desired ending.

Ah, history and English, two of my favorite subjects as well. Still love history, of any age, from pre-history onward. Started delving into anthropology and science, as well as archeology at age twelve, moving on to US and World History. One of my first fictional loves was the historical novel. I have never looked back. I can see how research would lead you down on one intriguing path after another and would be hard to know when to stop. Have fun, Robin. We will be the glad recipients of both your story telling talent and your research.

Yes, Poppet, cats are strange. They are a lot more subtle/sneaky in their ways. As for getting to the highest part of the house? Yep, even if it is a piece of paper on the floor! I enjoyed your guest post. Always good to have other points of view!

I actually do not stress over my TBR pile, but I used to. In fact I used to stress over a lot of things, but finally came to a point I know I can only do so much. I pick books through recomendations as well, but now select genres, then authors. I read a mystery, then a crime novel, then something inspirational, something humerous and then on down my list. It amazes me how many books I manage to read in a short period of time, and how fun it is! Blessings to you as you juggle, writing, reading and all the other responsibilities of life! It is a juggling act!

Happy Anniversary! That is a huge milestone. I've heard of the prayer shawls, but didn't know exactly what they were. Thank you for explainging. That is a beautiful way to blend the two needs: prayers and warmth.

I think it is a sad reflection on our society. Too much is considered transient. Go ahead and rant. I'll join you!

Just what I needed to hear, a reminder to obey even when the rational mind says, no. Trust when it appears to be foolish to do so. Faith in Him will never be the wrong choice. Thank you, Robin, for the much needed inspiration.

Congratulations on your wedding, Robin. The cruise sounds like a truly wonderful experience. And, I love the veil!

I agree, Robin. God has in fact tested me with numerous leaps of faith into the unknown. Each leap wrought unforeseen blessings and gifts. After so many experiences, it gets easier to take the leap without too much hesitation. Hope your trip is wonderful, as I am sure it will be! Can't wait to see the pictures.

I couldn't agree with you more, Robin. As The Bard so aptly put it, "It is far better to have loved and lost than not to have loved at all." I believe that with all my heart. How much richer life is with the love of family and friends, even when heartache and pain accompany that love. Great post, Robin. Wish the world would read and abide.

A good reminder of what it means to love our enemies, pray for their ultimate conversion, and they will no longer be enemies. And, while praying, we strengthen our own faith. Great post, Robin. Thank you.

It would be an awesome experience to hear angels' wings. One evening at sunset, my husband and I took a walk right at sunset along the river. Canadian geese rose from the water and flew only a few feet above us. There was no background noise of any kind, even the geese weren't honking. The air was so still and quiet, we heard nothing but the sound of air pushing through their wings. It was almost like breathe. Incredible. I have often wondered if angel wings would sound similar...

Thanks for the review, Robin. I've read the book. Excellent. Can't wait to see the movie. And, glad to hear after hours of work, your computer is running smoothly, and may you finish your story with time to spare!

Ah, Robin. Southern Oregon, my birth place. It is beautiful. I hope you enjoy your trip! By the way French Kiss is one of my favorite movies! Enjoy! Wish I WERE there with you. Miss seeing my daughter and grandson, still living in southern Oregon.
