    • monsterid

      Thanks for the compliment! Glad to give you something good to look at while surfing!

      • Thanks for these thoughts. I’m in a hotel room in England, wiating for a wedding tomorrow and it’s probably more nerve-wracking for me than the bride or groom! I am a Christian + have had SA for 15yrs and with God’s help am working with it + getting through it. Just some days (like tomorrow) are a bit scary. Thanks for the inspiration. I’ll think if that when I’m talking to strangers tomorrow. God bless.
