  1. Eugenia,

    Eve gave into temptation. Too bad she didn’t wait for God to impart the wisdom that she craved. Patience is a virtue and one we should strive to have with all things. Nice verse to accompany the inspirational image, my dear. Have a blessed week!

  15. Hello Eugenia

    Here’s my take on the tree of life. Had written this sometime back when I had suddenly discovered this old house with a banyan tree growing all over it, literally. Hope you like it. 🙂

  20. Thanks, Eugenia! BTW, how do have it show up as Trackbacks? I love how it makes it look cleaner!

    • Hi Susi, the theme I use lists the trackbacks all together (great feature). When I set up my posts listing the participants, I copy/paste the trackbacks into the new post. In the last roundup post, I set up columns for the participants so the list wouldn’t look so long. The theme is Opti and I use the new editor. Thank you for noticing. 😉
