Quickly, those of you who have not gotten your prizes yet, I apologize. They will be going out soon, and I'll let you know when I've sent them. It's been a little insane around here…

For Here Burns My Candle, I asked about a favorite Bible story:
Winner: LSU Reader!
My favorite is Abraham and Isaac. The devotion,love and absolute faith in Abraham's obedience is amazing.
For Hiking Through, I asked about the best/worst camping trip. Got some pretty horrible answers!
Winner: Christine H!
I honestly have never really been camping. The closest thing to camping was once at my grandmas, in the country and we slept outside as kids.
For Poetry Speaks Who I Am, I asked for a favorite poem or a poem that you wrote. Also got some hilarious answers!
Here are the winners:
Wow, This looks like a lot of fun!
Ok, I'm a writer/poet from Texas. I guess my fav. poet(s) would have to be either Robert Frost or E.E. Cummings.
Palpable and Just
swirling within the test of time
we all but gain grey gathered dust,
now winking towards the magic eye our minds
embrace the flames of something more palpable and just...
--James K. Blaylock
and Dawn M!
Heh. I am so NOT a poet. The last time I even tried to write anything was for a project at my library. The youth were making shadow boxes for their favorite book. My director and I made one for Twilight - the meadow scene. My contribution?
Twinkle, twinkle little Ed,
Are you gonna make me dead?
Not until we're wed
