I know, I know, I promised I would write one post per week. I had every intention of keeping that promise. So here's what happened: We arrived in Alabama on the property with the grandkids three weeks ago Thursday, around 8 p.m. We had traveled a little over 600 miles pulling our 34' Airstream travel [...]
This is a great flash fiction story. Loved it. Re-blogged fro jademwong.wordpress.com.
“I’m sure that the little girl in that back seat was signing us…can you speed up a little bit?”
Devan rolled his eyes, but complied, edging closer to the boxy car in front.
“She’s spelling something.”
Devan started to reply with something along the lines of ‘you’re being paranoid, bro’, but stopped short when he saw the wide-eyed girl staring at him through the back window, feverishly moving her hands.
“Two fingers to the right…‘H’.”
Devan glanced at his brother, who had pulled up the Sign Language alphabet on his phone, his gaze hastily moving from the girl to his phone and back.
“Sort of a fist…‘O’? No, wait, ‘E’. And that’s an ‘L’. And…”
Devan looked at his brother in silence, time stopping as realization dawned on them. In a jolt of reality rushing back, Devan floored the accelerator, his brother gripping his seatbelt…

All photos are taken by Jenny. These are her pictorial episodes of her travel adventures. I’ve just discovered this blog. It is sure to be a favorite for those of us who enjoy the outdoors and God’s creation around the world.
Alaminos, Pangasinan in the Philippines is known for its One Hundred Islands where many tourists visit the place and experience ISLAND HOPPING. You can explore the islands by riding a boat and feel the ambiance of seawater, caves and trees.
These are the boats going to the different islands.
Those mountains you can view at this picture are the islands I am referring to.
Our family dropped by the Hundred Islands for a short span of time because our real destination is on the white beach at Surip Mountain Beach Resort at Bani, Pangasinan.

If you are from the city of Manila, it is a 6 hour-drive (if there is no traffic). You need a private vehicle going to the resort because it is far from…

Thank you for a thought-provoking sonnet. God gave us a planet of beauty to inhabit and it is taken for granted by uncaring, unfeeling people, who pass those negative qualities on to their progeny. If people are going to go hiking/camping, biking, etc., they should carry trash bags with them and carry them back to a place where they can be properly disposed of.
I walk each morning in some woodland near my home and especially savour in this late autumn, early winter season, the damp carpet of fallen leaves, now decaying and forming rich mulch that will feed the soil for future growth. Even in their decay, losing edge and shape, melding and blending together there is in this carpet of leaves, a kind of grace and beauty. The other morning though, these meditations were interrupted by a sudden intrusion. There amongst the gold and mottled leaf mould, like some harsh alien excrescence, was a discarded plastic bag. It was totally out of place and told its own tale of indifference and carelessness; not just the carelessness of the person that dropped it, but the carelessness of the culture that produced it. The trees shed their leaves, and in that fall and letting go achieve…

Hi. My name is Ditzy (well, actually it’s my nickname) and I like to travel. I live in Jacksonville, Florida where the sun shines most of the time. Honey, California’s got nothing on us. My best friend, Lucy likes to travel, too, so we often take trips together. That’s us in that old, beat-up Airstream [...]
I asked Jesus to be my savior at the age of 23. I went to MYF (Methodist Youth Fellowship) all through high school and never heard that Jesus died on the cross for my sin, that He took my punishment. I have learned that I can trust Him in every situation. He healed my marriage, changed my outlook on life, made me a better mother and wife, and I have never once regretted giving Him control of my life. He even helped me to understand my mother so I could stop being angry with her.
A common misconception many of the more vocal non-believers I interact with have is that they think Christians need to decieve, coerce, or indoctrinate people into the faith while they are young or Christianity simply won’t stick.
“Clearly kids aren’t smart enough to know better but adults are different” they all seem to say.
Truth is, people can realize they need salvation at any age, it happens all the time, here is one awesome example.
If you, regardless of how old you are or what kind of life you have lived, would like to know how to become a Christian, read this.
I became a Christian at 30 and it was the best thing I have ever done.
Incredible photographs by Judith Barrow. Words are inadequate. Wow!
Thank you, Ronovan. I have often lamented not being able to indent in WP. If I had thought about it, though, it makes sense. Just add spaces. Oh, yeah! Re: Amber Wake: I have been reading it aloud to my husband. We are on ch. 5 and really enjoying the book. When finished I will post a review on my WP site and on Amazon.
As some of you may have noticed, I have begun a new feature here on RW called Ask Ronovan. You can ask anything. Normally I wait a couple of weeks and put out the answers on a Sunday with the next Ask Ronovan post. However, a question was asked I believe needs answering now. Do you wonder how to indent in your blogs?
Here is the request:
Name or Identifying Name (Think something like “What’s Cooking in Columbia”.): Ann V. Friend
Website (Not required.): http://afriendforever54.wordpress.com
Your Question for Ronovan: Hi Ronovan
Can you point me in the write direction for html code to align my acrostic poem below?
Can’t align in WordPress.
I’m not including the poem here but I’ll create one that will do much the same.
