♥ For a while now, I have wanted to express my gratitude to all you WordPressers out there who have encouraged me since I began flutterings. As I have said more than once, I am new at displaying my work in a public forum like this. As it turned out, I had scarcely established my first post when followers and likes began to appear, much to my astonishment. All your wonderful comments on my posts have been a blessing and are much appreciated. Almost everything I have posted since I began flutterings has received a like or two. Even my little grandson’s guest-post poem was liked.
♥ You have all been so gracious to encourage a fledgling WordPresser like myself. If that was your intention, you have succeeded. As typical with many writers, I am often unsure of the worth of my work in the eyes of others. If any of you ever have suggestions or criticisms, I would more than welcome your feedback. Although I greatly appreciate the feedback that comes from my family and friends, it is, of course, prejudiced. They understand that writing is a large part of who I am. Besides that, they have had years to get used to my writing.
♥ Time constraints recently have prevented me from visiting your sites as often as I would have liked. I have missed that experience as I enjoy your work so much. The beauty and talent you pour out daily on your blogs is overwhelming to say the least. You all deserve a towering measure of success.
♥ Many of the poems I have posted were inspired by my faith. It has not been my intention to be preachy or to condemn, so I hope no one has been offended. I am not the kind of Christian who tries to beat everyone into submitting to what I believe. I simply have a Christ-filled heart; it is who I am, and poetry is all about sharing those deepest parts of me. Christ’s example was to lead rather than push or pull.
♥ My heartfelt thanks goes out to all my new friends for making this an enjoyable experience for me (as opposed to one wracked with anxiety and self-doubt). I commend you.
