"Why would I spend my life longing for the day that it would end?
Why would I spend my time pointing, to another man?
Isnt that crazy...
How can I find hope in dieing, with promises unseen?
How can I learn Your ways better in everything I'm taught to be?
Isnt that Crazy...
I have not been called to the wisdom of this world, but to a God whose calling out to me.
And even though the world may thing I'm loosin' touch with reality, it would be crazy to choose this world over Eternity!"

News, news, news!!!!
I have news :). First of all... ~ ~ ~
I GOT SHORTLISTED FOR THE ELYNE MITCHELL RURAL WOMEN'S WRITING AWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am still like "WOW!!" and it was two days ago that I found out :D! I am sooo happy, ecstatic, excited and just plain amazed that I could have gotten shortlisted out of hundreds of contestants!! 10 people get shortlisted for each category (there are 2 categories) and out of those 10, one is the winner. The standard for judging is pretty high so only very good writers get to be shortlisted. Right now I don't care if I win, because I have won anyways, being shortlisted IS winning! It's one of those things that will look good on a future job resume :).
The whole presentation is on the 15'th of October (on World Rural Women's Day), that is when the winner is announced and all that.
Anyway, other news.
Well I had to go to the dentist on Tuesday (the 29th) and have 2 teeth pulled out :P (actually its a bit of a "YAY!" because that means the last trip to the dentist in a long time!!). And my sister decided it would be a good idea to share her germs with me and I got the flu (nother :P), that is one time I do not like sharing, lols, so I am sitting here with a sore mouth (cos I chewed on something the slightest bit hard) and the flu!!! :(
Ok, on a better (brighter!) note. Monday, because I was bored I decided to start sewing rectangles of fabric together and now all I have to do is sew the binding on the edges and I have a blanket for my Glory Box :) (will try to post pics and instructions soon).
We haven't had Internet for the last 3 days (that explains my absence from the blogging world).
