An award

Life can get a bit too exciting at times, can't it? I just hope I keep everything together; I hope I stay cool, calm, collected,...and stable.

Yesterday I found out that I had received a Fellowship of Christian Newspaper award, an organization that represents about forty regional Christian newspapers in the US and Canada. I placed second in the First Person Article category for a testimony I had published in BC Christian News last year. Wow! I feel honored.

This article, No Longer Alone, is also online at www.canadianchristianity.com. I'm sorry! I still can't create links. Will have my talented son help me with my computer problems real soon (I hope). Anyway, check that website and do a search for the article and you will find it.

I had a look over my past few posts and was horrified to discover how much I've been repeating myself, especially on my favorite topic, "Love." I'm sorry and I hope I'm not boring you too too much. Does this have something to do with getting older? But I feel so young!!!

I have now finished reading Blue Like Jazz, so won't draw thoughts from that book anymore. I'm now on to my next book by another revolutionary Christian, Brian McLaren. The book is Everything Must Change. Sounds pretty radical, doesn't it? Love it. But it's a difficult book and a lot of it's beyond me. But the things I have understood appeal to me, so I will plow on and gather what I can.

Love is the foundation of Christianity!! I don't think that topic can EVER be talked about too much.

CONGRATS on the award! I will read your article, for sure!!

Congratulations Marja!! That is so fantastic.

And for the record, it never occurred to me that you were repeating yourself :)

Thanks, PJ and Coco. I'm glad you don't get tired of my talking about love. But I will try to change gears a bit in the near future.
