A to Z reflections 2023 #AtoZChallenge

Thank you to everyone, who took an interest in my posts for the A to Z Challenge this year. I have made another A to Z for my Reflections post.

April was not when I wrote my posts.

Being realistic I didn’t try to visit many bloggers this year.

Crackerberries, I hope to catch up later.

Delighted to have some positive comments on my posts.

Efficient at sharing links, perhaps in too many places!

Friends I have made in earlier challenges were my priority this time, but I have little interest in films.

Genealogists give each other useful information. Thank you, Sue.

Having a theme makes the challenge easier.

I enjoyed some short posts, including AI art from Misky.

John Holton, J Lenni Dorner and Jayden R Vincente wrote some encouraging posts on the official blog. (Not forgetting Arlee Bird and Zalka Csenge Virág, whose names do not include J! Links to all their blogs may be found on the official blog.)

Kindred spirits read each other’s posts.

Links to my earlier challenges were not clicked on. I may edit my posts to give previews.

My (unrelated) post on the More than Writers’ blog, Enchantment, was viewed more times than posts on my own blog.

Norton antivirus blocked at least two A to Z bloggers. Have you checked your blog’s status there?

Official blog posts were all encouraging. Thank you, A to Z team.

Poetry is a popular challenge in April with NaPoWriMo. Perhaps next year I’ll participate in that (as well?)

Questions I ask myself include, how can I write better?

Reviews of books I have already read are the only ones I am interested in. Jemima Pett reviewed one or two.

Spoilers in book reviews put me off. Spam had to be deleted from my feedback folder.

Taking part in the A to Z Challenge gives a sense of achievement.

Ultimately, how we treat other people is of utmost importance.

Verses from the Bible appeared in all my A to Z posts.

When you have time, I invite you to explore the rest of my blog.

Xiexie and xenium are useful words to add to any vocabulary.

Yen for travel was not the reason I enjoyed Janet’s posts.

Zebras are not pachyderms, although one appears at the top of my blog.

A closing prayer Jude 24-25


Zacchaeus #AtoZChallenge

Letter Z

In my 2013 A to Z post I wrote:

Zacchaeus was a little man, but not overlooked by Jesus.  Luke 19:1-9

Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega (The first and last letter in the Greek alphabet). Revelation 1:8

Zacchaeus climbed a tree in order to see Jesus. That took effort and the need to overcome embarrassment.

I hope you have learned more about Jesus and know Him better through this Blogging from A to Z. He was there when the world began (The Alpha) and will be alive for evermore (The Omega).

Letter Y

In my 2013 A to Z post I wrote:

YAHWEH or Jehovah is one of the names of God.

Jesus asked his disciples, “Who do you say I am?”  Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the son of the living God.”  Matthew 16:15-16

In the 2020 A to Z Challenge I asked my readers about their response to Yeshua (Jesus’ name).

YAHWEH and Jehovah are mentioned in my A to Z on the Names of God.
