Thanks for all the responses.
Since we're all reading one another's blogs anyway, and since too much press actually backfires, and makes a person less likely to be interested in a topic, I'm not going to keep doing a post a day to highlight the day's cause and organization. Instead, I'm going to keep the sidebar up-to-date. You can click on the appropriate blog and go directly to the post related to the 40 Day Fast. Also, this will be nice when we're finished, to have all causes and organizations in chronological order. Because I love order just that much ...
As an aside, someone categorized me as an "organized by nature" (or birth, or something) person yesterday. Mom! Stephanie (Georgia's mom)! Did you hear that? ME, organized by nature? They clearly never saw my bedroom when I was growing up. But now, yeah, maybe ... I do love love love order and routine, sometimes more than is probably good for any of us. And I'll just let that say whatever it says about me, because either way it's true.
So. I hope everyone is having a good weekend. It's thundering here, and we desperately need the rain. By the way, did you all know that Bob Riley, the governor of Alabama, called for a week of prayer for rain? And that it started raining the FIRST DAY of the week of prayer? I love it.
Happy Saturday, all.
p.s. Meet Paean.
