In case you don't see it on my post, I'm responding here. I'm not sure how the whole deal works.

Also, I wish I'd checked blogger. The game seemed fun.

Anyways, response-age.

I don't know so much if we're the same person or if we're in a quiet majority. So much of Christianity would shoot it's own wounded that we feel compelled to be silent on what's going on in our lives and the things we really struggle with. I think we have to be able to break free of that and only then will we realize just how much alike we all are.

After all, are we not one body? Doesn't that have to include something of our struggles with Christ as well? Maybe not, maybe it's over-reaching, but it makes sense to me.

I believe we're part of the larger group, my dear Sarah Lewie. I think we're just sometimes too scared to admit it and even more afraid that someone might actually understand how we feel.

That island picture makes me really want a sun/sand vacation. The MO/TN trip is not going to scratch that itch.
I am having a radical thought. Instead of spending the companion ticket on the TN trip, how about a jaunt down to SanFran when it is really warm and beach weather????? We could do NY, but that will just be plain HOT.
