Blog Carnival: Trust

“Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation.” Trust is something that can diminish the older we get, a child looks to its parent as they push the swing knowing they’re standing right behind them, to catch them, should they falter.

Row, row, row your boat; gently down the stream…

I have a Flickr account and for the longest time I didn’t know what to do with it. I just kind of imagined that it was my online storage and that I wouldn’t have to worry about losing photos. But as I spend a little more time with it, I find myself enjoying it more…
