Seems quite Pinteresting! - I joined!! & Footsteps



Well have given in to joining this website. It is yet another way of getting your books out there and so enlarges your 'footprint' - terrible term!
As it is based very much on visual clues it is necessary to be creative about getting this blog up there. I have a lot to learn about getting the best out of this platform.

 This was also recommended to me in the last 24 hours. I am aware that some of my writer friends use this site but I am unsure as to where you stand with retaining rights over your work and you seem to have to join to find things out. Help please!!!

The overall effect of using such sites is that you get several 'trickles' running that taken together keeps you at a reasonably high level of attention but at a price. Like all such ventures you only get out what you put in and so they are quite high maintenance.

Spare a thought for the families of all who died in the dreadful terror attacks on that day. It is terribly sad when people are killed but those left behind are punished for the rest of their lives.


Footsteps In The Sand 



One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along
the beach with the Lord.

Across the dark sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed
two sets of footprints in the sand,
one beloning to him and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his life
there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the
very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it.

"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life there is
only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when I needed you most
you would leave me."

The Lord replied "My precious, precious child,
I love you and would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffereing,
when you see only one set of footprints in the sand,
it was then that I carried you."



God Bless
