Also, thanks for your prayers for my half-marathon and my event last Thursday night!! There were both great!!!!!! I’ve been recuperating all day and working on a chapter that is due this Wednesday, for a book I am contributing to. As soon as I am done writing on Tuesday, I’ll be posting photos and details of my run. JJ and the boys came to cheer me on during the race, and one of my best friends ended up running with me, so it was just an incredible end to an incredible week!

    • I came, I read this article, I couenqred.

    • “hillary clinton is the most business-friendly candidate among remainings in both parties.”Look how business friendly W. is and look where that has gotten us.I agree with BC. Stop the nonsense.

    • Jag förstÃ¥r att du tycker stt det är självklart, jag är av en helt annan Ã¥sikt. Säger inte att du har rätt eller fel, menar bara att för mig har det kokat ned till mitt eget resonemang. Det gäller mÃ¥nga tävlande med mig. Den tunga framfarten i sig är inte avgörande, slutmÃ¥let är belöningen och driver i sig bättre för vissa, kontrasten bekräftar insatsen om du förstÃ¥r vad jag menar?

    • Turut Belasungkawa atas wafatnya Bpk. Sobron Aidit, semoga arwah beliau mendapat tempat yang selayaknya di sisi Tuhan yang maha esa, kita teladani sikap hidupnya yang penuh perhatian buat sesama……..

    • wow…i thought these changes were supposed to improve things? i can't comment and now i find out i cant add anything to my favourites anymore either.

    • Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your weblog. You have some really great posts and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested.

  3. Hooray for the winners at your blog!

    Hooray for you running that half-marathon and having a great event!

    Blessings to you as you write!
    🙂 K

    There is a little 2 week old baby from our church with spinal meningitis and a strep infection! Her name is Jade, and the next five days are crucial… Her temp is 104° and they can’t get it down — I assume that is the most crucial matter for prayer right now.

    Anyone reading this, please pray!

  7. Wow, I just clicked over to your blog after being ridiculously busy for 2 weeks and saw that I won!!!!
    Thanks, Renee.

  8. Exactly Jill!!! This goes for some of the hubansds too, I want to see just a little of them, but when they get JUST as much airtime as the wives it really annoys me.
