Thank you for this recording!
You do need to take care of a couple of things.
At the beginning there should be no more than one second of silence, so that needs to be trimmed.
At the end we need about FIVE seconds of silence, and this recording ends very abruptly with a loud click.

Optionally, I found quite a few places where there is noticeable background noise or clicks. These are probably passable under "standard PL" criteria, but I've listd some of the most distracting ones in case you would like to clip them out. 00:36 0:49 1:04 2:23 3:04 3:11 10:00 11:31 13:43 14:58 15:24 16:23 17:12 17:36
If you do, start at the back and work your way forward to keep the time stamps in place.

And, stylistically, I found many of your pauses overly long, some 2 or more seconds. But, it is you style, so just take it FWIW.

Great selection! I have been that Timothy! And, I've now been a Paul. Timeless.

A deeply moving message!
I think he is right about sacrifice.
Makes me think of Adoniram Judson, losing wives and children in Burma, Harmon Schmelzenbach whose children are buried at Piggs Peak, Swaziland. And the list goes on. I will always remember the look on my father's face when we boarded the plane, taking his first an only grand child with us to Haiti. Those are the secret sacrifices.

Anyway, PL OK pending technical corrections, as is Section 10.

Larry,
Thank you for the great feedback -I had done the recording without a pop filter and by following your edit suggestions I can can see the need for it.
I have made all the suggested corrections and also eliminated many of the pauses.

And, I just had to look up McCubbin's painting to really appreciate this piece better!
Only thing is, we don't know who the man in the third picture is or who the cross is for. He may be the baby from the second picture, given the apparent passage of time. But then, that is the point of art isn't it?

Sections 9 and 10 are now PL OK.

Oh, it is a learning process, and we are all still leaning and giving each other feedback. It is all part of the process and we are in this together. Your extra efforts are much appreciated! I like your thoughtful reading style and look forward to hearing the next chapters from you. :thumbs:

Now PL OK, and MW updated.

Very fine reading!

Just one small note.
There is an overly long gap starting at 4:45 which I think would be good to trim.

Eager to hear your next chapter. :D
