    Hi

    CAN’T KEEP UP…BUT THANKS FOR THE “THANX”
    I’ve had many hundreds of thousands of comments on my various other WordPress blogs at https://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2011/09/09/craigs-list-of-blogs-updated-sept-2011/
    in recent years …true!) …a few of my blogs went “balistically viral” a few years back.

    Obsessive or WHAT! Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as the reason I write is to share. However I am unable to keep up with the comments and was spending entire days just on replies on my various blog pages.

    Though I’m rather “driven”, I still get really, really fatigued (there’s a few books there). so sorry can’t reply individually to all you good people scattered around the planet, but DO try to read as many as possible daily (and even moderate a few when I get a “mo”), I got swamped with comments on my various blogs, so have had to close them off on all of my blogs, except for one or two of particular interest to me – sorry and hope you can understand.

    I do really appreciate your liking, linking to and/or following this blog (and “writing in”), so “thanks for the thanx”

    “As we live and move and have our being, so from this vision, we create heaven in our own lives… and perhaps even heaven on earth.”
    – craig (as inspired by Acts 17:28 and the words of Felicia Searcy)

    “Aim at the earth and you may not get off the ground.a
    “Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”
    “Aim at heaven and you’ll have earth thrown in…
    and you may even hit the stars.”
    – craig (as inspired by the famous quote by CS Lewis – 24th May 2012)

    “When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
    – Leonardo da Vinci

    When (or if ever) you arrive in heaven, let faith, hope and love be the wings that carried you there.”

    – as adapted from the inspiring words of Jonathan Edwards, former minister in New England, Massachusetts

    “The Greatest Race: Living by (with) faith, hope and love is the highest podium any person can reach, God’s podium that anyone stand on.”
    – c

    “Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”

    “If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,
    he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
    or Beethoven composed music, or
    Shakespeare wrote poetry.
    He should sweep streets so well
    that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
    here lived a great street sweeper
    who did his job well.”
    – Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Instead of trying to reply to each one of you, I’ll just keep on writing

    “If the doctor told me I had six minutes to live, I’d type a little faster.”

    “I wish you well on a rainy day
    I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
    To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
    to remind you that happiness can happen
    when you least expect it.

    I wish you rainbows to make you laugh and smile
    to show you the simple beauty of life
    and to give you the magic of dreams come true.

    I wish you rainbows
    I wish you well.”

    – Larry S. Chengges

    ”Since I can never see your face,
    And never shake you by the hand,
    I send my soul through time and space
    To greet you. You will understand.”

    Hi

    This is craig and this is a quick word of sincere thanks to you ALL. I came across the following post from international best-selling author, Bryant McGill on his Facebook page, which I felt “inspired” to share. Brant’s writing summed up/put these thoughts far better than “lazy-bones” I ever could have done, so am sharing these beautifully-written and heart-felt sentiments in the same spirit (through copy and paste ( CONTROL C AND V)

    Personalized, “adapted” and abbreviated (edited) from

    https://www.facebook.com/bryantmcgill/

    Thanks (sincerely) for “the borrow” Bryant.

    “Be bold and unseen forces come to one’s aid”

    This is a personal message to ALL you good people around the world, who follow my various blog pages and posts and read and comment my various writings on WordPress and in my books. I want you to know that I really appreciate all of you. I would love to respond to nearly every comment. I can’t do that; however I do care that you take the time to read (and absorb) what I’ve written and may even have commented. I do read as many comments on my 200 + blogs as I can, but probably have missed countless thoughts of yours, so have not replied. Sorry and thanks for the understanding.

    “Just as you grow and learn, I am also growing and learning from you all…and really like people to THINK.”

    I just felt compelled to let you know that I really appreciate you for reading and perhaps following my various writings. Never think for a moment, that just because I don’t respond to comments or messages that I am not paying attention. I am paying attention and I am grateful.

    I am a full-time writer, which means you are a very important part of my life. I wish all of you the freedom, respect and happiness you each deserve. Thank you all for being a part of my life. Your presence, feedback and contribution “out there in cyberspace” has added immeasurable to my ‘little’ life here in “isolated and far-off Sleepy Hollow”, near the bottom of the world and through the medium of the net we can be and remain connected in spirit.

    “Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.”

    “Together, one mind, one heart, one life, one small step at a time, let’s inspire the world.”
