CONGRATULATIONS, Candida, on hitting MBB stardom! BTW, you look more like you're 12 than a 10-yr married, 28 yr old homeschooler with 4 kids!! (Lucky you!)
I've never heard of "Facing The Giants" or even "The Oath" by Frank Peretti and, had you ever had my own mother's Meatloaf, you'd know why I only WISH I'd never heard of it either!!
BUT. . .I do enjoy sewing, LOVE reading, gardening, anything home improvement AND CSI (dun care what city it's in!) I also love your quote, although it reminds me of "The More Loving One" by W. H. Auden.
At any rate, a very warm welcome to the spotlight and I hope you enjoy your week here!!
