Just some stuff...

First of all, the 3 winners for the Season of Joy book is: (as selected by my random number generator) number 14: Kate (posted 12:12am) number 25: Kelly (posted 1:10pm) and number 56: Jocelyn (posted 3:37pm). Please email me then I will post it to you!!

Then... all those fabulous people you saw on the video are... Eric & Julie Comstock from Cosmo Cricket and Donna Downey & hubby Bill, Denny Ruffner from Prima, Jodi Holbrook from Making Memories & her hubby Matt (the strong man on the video) and Stephanie & Suezi from Me and My Big Ideas. Of course last but the most...Glenda and Val and (Louise!!) from the Scrapbook Expo. We all got along very well and I can honestly say they are all awesome people. Seriously.

I read Psalm 19 last night and I thought to share some with you. One of my dear south African friends, Caroline, made me the most beautiful cover for my little message Bible and I am so in love with it, I read that little Bible now all the time. Thank you Caro! You have blessed me soooo much! Anyway, Psalm 19 says: 6 That's how God's Word vaults across the skies from sunrise to sunset, Melting ice, scorching deserts, warming hearts to faith. The revelation of God is whole and pulls our lives together. The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road. The life-maps of God are right, showing the way to joy. The directions of God are plain and easy on the eyes. God's reputation is twenty-four-carat gold, with a lifetime guarantee. The decisions of God are accurate down to the nth degree. 10 God's Word is better than a diamond, better than a diamond set between emeralds. You'll like it better than strawberries in spring, better than red, ripe strawberries. There's more: God's Word warns us of danger and directs us to hidden treasure. Otherwise how will we find our way? Or know when we play the fool? Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh! Keep me from stupid sins, from thinking I can take over your work; Then I can start this day sun-washed, scrubbed clean of the grime of sin. These are the words in my mouth; these are what I chew on and pray. Accept them when I place them on the morning altar, O God, my Altar-Rock, God, Priest-of-My-Altar.

I love, love, love this word. It's so lyrical. So poetic and so true. It's speaking to me personally in my age and situation and I know it would for you too.

Be blessed and have a fantastic day!
Love and a kiss
Wilna

I would love to see the Bible cover that your friend made you; I just got the remix Message (mainly from reading the beautiful passages you've been putting on here!) and I'd love to make it a cover.
