I have had the chance to read all the comments from you guys, thanks, i've got lots to tell and can't wait to update.
In more interesting news, I enjoyed reading this article:
The world awaits the joint testimony of Christians
here is some of it...
VATICAN CITY, JAN 26, 2007 (VIS) - Yesterday afternoon in the Roman basilica of St. Paul's Outside-the-Walls, the Pope presided at the celebration of the second Vespers of the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. The ceremony, which marked the end of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, was attended by representatives from other Churches and ecclesial communities.
In his homily, the Holy Father recalled how the theme of this year's Week of Prayer, taken from the Gospel of St. Mark - "He even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak" - had been proposed by Christian communities in South Africa. "These words," he said, "are good news announcing the coming of the Kingdom of God and the healing of the incapacity to communicate."
"Listening to the Word of God ... is a priority in our ecumenical efforts. Indeed, it is not we who organize the unity of the Church; the Church does not create herself and does not live by herself, but by the Word that comes from the mouth of God."
"Whoever undertakes to listen to the word of God can and must then speak out and transmit it to others, to those who have never heard it, or to those who have forgotten it and buried it under the 'thorns' of the cares and illusions of the world.

Miracle of the Rosary
miracle of the Rosary
It's just beautiful, and it has taken me this long to hear it, thanks to Thomas aka:
You are a sea of information!
Ok here is my plug that goes out to Deepak....
My blogger friend Deepak sent me his youtube video, so I thought that since he wants to be an actor he needs all the publicity he can get, so why not take a look at the video by linking here
I think that I see another blogger by the name of
Noushad in it too, being choked of all things.
Anyway, I haven't written for ages, things are so busy that I am overwhelmed! But all is going well and the wedding plans are coming along nicely. I will get around to reading your blogs soon and updating you on the new things that are happening. Thanks for your visits and your lovely messages in the post below.

Did anyone notice my wedding count down ticker on my blog? You better because I want you all to see it!! You know, since I put it in the middle and at the top and all.
Argent gave me the idea, so thanks. Although it took me forever to work out how it can be viewed on a dark background such as mine. The "love birds" meet at the end, how sweet?? I'm being a little corny here I think, so I'll stop.
Today I found the most beautiful wedding invitations that I've ever seen, they can be made in a week so they'll be out soon. I'll take a photo when I have them at home and all printed, I'll hide the address though of course this is the internet!!
Jonathan and I are going to start a novena to St.Joseph for the plans and other things, so I'm confident all will go well and fall together nicely. I love the fact that we are getting married in the start of spring, it has that "new life" feel about it. If I had a choice of another season I'd pick winter bc I love the snow and the winter colors, even though I do almost die when I feel those Ohio winters, here I am a small person from such a hot and dry climate, going to live in a place where the seasons are opposite!! I am seriously in need of eskimo clothes!!
I remember wearing winter tights under my jeans on a cold day, I've never done that. I also wore 2 pairs of socks, another first. I'm not complaining though, really, the homes are warm, I had never seen heating ducts in a bathroom til I visited.
So it's almost time for me to leave the country, about one month and a bit to go, it's an amazing feeling. I am in one way sad to leave my family over here, but excited about the new things to come and spending more time with my new family over there. I'll see my Australian family a lot because we are close so it's going to work out beautifully, I'm very lucky.
So yes, the new year has started super busy.
Just adding a short note of thank you to all my readers who have sent me such beautiful well wishes and prayers for the new year and who have been waiting patiently to be hearing about me and Jonathan.
