faith

the sun is shining, the birds are happy, it is april... and we have still not heard about our visa extention. i have been laying this down at God's feet everyday, and picking it back up again each afternoon after the mail comes. God is good, and he loves me. these are undisputed facts, as far as i'm concerned. so why does my faith come so hard these days? God forgive me... i believe, help my unbelief.

on an unrelated note - except perhaps that this wouldn't happen if we lived in Calgary - i woke up at 5:01am with a 3 1/2 inch CENTIPEDE CRAWLING ACROSS MY FACE!!! PUTRID AND TERRIFYING! it woke me out of a dead sleep, and curtis thought i was dreaming...but no - after clawing it off my face, there it was on the sheets, trying to get away. oh my gosh - it was HORRIBLE. i am definitely scarred.

Was it a millipede (http://bugguide.net/images/raw/UQA0GQO05QNKGQ9KLKA00KB08QUK4QO04QUKRKO00KB08QB05QY05QJ0NQOKNQ30MK1KGKUK0K.jpg) or a centipede (http://bugguide.net/node/view/39896)...
because a centipede of that size would probably have to be from Africa. (JV)

i looked at the website, and it was DEFINITELY a centipede...it had the two whips (or whatever) on the backend.

I dont know what possessed me to look at Jordan's links. Yuck! I'm still grossed out by this! How did you sleep last night?

Reminds me of the spider-swallowing myth... (http://www.washington.edu/burkemuseum/spidermyth/myths/whileyousleep.html) Well, except for the fact that it REALLY happened to you. And with 8+ legs. Yummy. Thanks--you have effectively turned that strand of hair falling across my cheek in my sleep into a living nightmare.
