  1. Hi Linda!

    Please look for my poem, "The White Bridge," (yeah, I know, "How original!?") on my blog

    It was really rewarding being inspired by one of the paintings you chose to do some grief work that was badly needed! Thank you so much too for your encouraging twitter comment this week. Please keep praying - this week, being the week after the 3rd anniv. of her death, has been ungodly, Satan trying to attack every which way he can, but God IS faithful to counterattack. But as you surely must know, such spiritual warfare is hellatious to walk through.

    Thank you again for all your hard work going into your blogs. You are such a gift to us!

    Much love and thankfulness for you,
