I've always been amused by how some people spell 'ketchup' as 'katsup' or even 'catsup'.

And from reading that, I suppose it's quite possible that you're amused by how little it takes to amuse me. Small things for small minds and all that. Anyway, this is more about the 'catchup' that I'm playing these days.

I fell ill (For the first time in about four years - there goes the record.) las week. I was completely knocked out for about four days. And as a result, I'm completely behind in a lot of things: school work, e-mail, errands.

Truth-be-told, I'm a little overwhelmed at the moment. And of course, I'm employing my usual coping method - ignoring all the things that I have to deal with. But no more. It's time to move on. So, please excuse me if I'm absent for the next little while. I'm hard at work.

And before I go: Congrats to two of my favourite people who recently welcomed their firstborn into the world. God bless.

And, finally. This song says it all.

Hold Me Jesus
Rich Mullins; As covered by Amy Grant
From the album Awesome God: A Tribute to Rich Mullins

Sometimes my life just don't make sense at all
When the mountains look so big
And my faith just seems so small

So hold me Jesus, I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace

And I wake up in the night and feel the dark
It's so hot inside my soul
There must be blisters on my heart

Surrender don't come natural to me
I'd rather fight You for something I don't really want
Than to take what You give that I need
And I've beat my head against so many walls
I'm falling down, I'm falling on my knees

And this Salvation Army band is playing this hymn
And Your grace rings out so deep
It makes my resistance seem so thin
