Please accept my appreciation for all of your comments. I’m absolutely tickled that you found this story funny, even as far as laughing out loud, and that you were willing to indulge with me in a bit of silliness. Thank you so much for letting me know as I don’t have much confidence in my ability to write humor (though a little more now, LOL).

Some specific replies below:

Janis: Thank you so much! If you’re a bad person for laughing at Lady C’s demise, I’m doubly bad for dreaming it up and then laughing at it myself. smiling smiley

Debra Mc: Glad you liked it! I’ve missed writing JAFF so much--just one of those extra busy seasons in life. I won’t call it a New Year’s resolution because that implies more commitment than I can make, but I’m *hoping* this year to finish and share a few of the partially written short stories that are languishing on my hard drive. This was the first…

Suzanne O: The dream sequence is rather a favorite device of mine. I think it pops up in another story on my unfinished list as well. Hmm… And thanks for the encouragement too. Faith is such an integral part of my life, yet I’m sometimes conflicted about how to incorporate it into my stories.

Mari: Love it--LOL! You phrased it perfectly and that was the balance I was going for, which is partly why I avoided Darcy’s POV. That would have been totally unsuitable.

Peter: Wow, I’m flattered this little story achieved reread status--thanks! BTW, I’ve been enjoying “The Road Back” and as with your other fans am keen to see where it goes. I apologize for being a lurker and not commenting when I know how much the encouragement means. For what it’s worth, when I have time to read, it’s almost always on my phone with one hand while feeding the baby.

Nicolette: Happy Birthday! I hope you enjoyed a wonderful day!

SarahC.: Yes, the opening was intended to imply Pemberley. The inscription isn’t meant to be a mystery--just “Psalm 121” which was identified on the plaque of the church bench that collapsed. I imagine Darcy acquiring the actual plate and affixing it to a new bench overlooking Pemberley. He would have chosen the location because the Psalm opens with the line “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.” It’s also the source for the title (even though the title has multiple connotations), “he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.”
