drumroll please

Sorry I didn't get to do the drawing last last night, but I was somewhere special! Ms.Erin has a special "in", and took MyFk and I to see Savion Glover perform "Classic Savion" at Zellerbach (a treat of the kind we aren't normally able to afford, as of late). The show was great, and the company was even better. Thank You!! *kiss kiss*

So the raffle. MyFK did the honors. And the winner is....

Wheelchair Dancer! Send me an email girlie.
And thanks to all who entered :-)

more amazing links.

The parent website was sniffed out by TheMIG, but it was your Resident Stumpmeister here who spotted the link to:

"Why God Won't Heal Amputees <--The Most Important Question We Can Ask About God"

Here's a sampling:

* It is not that God sometimes answers the prayers of amputees, and sometimes does not. Instead, in this situation there is a very clear line. God never answers the prayers of amputees. It would appear, to an unbiased observer, that God is singling out amputees and purposefully ignoring them.

* The reason God cures thousands of cancers, infections, etc. each day but never intervenes with amputees is because it is not God's will to do that. It is not part of God's plan. This explanation seems a little odd. Amputees really do seem to be getting the short end of God's plan if this is the case.

*...but I think we can agree that there is something very odd about the way that our perfect, all-loving God treats amputees. No matter how many people pray. No matter how sincere those people are. No matter how much they believe. No matter how devout and deserving the recipient. Nothing happens when we pray for amputated limbs. God never regenerates lost limbs through prayer....

Yah, God.

It's not like you don't have the limb regeneration thing figured out. MyFK's gecko is growing a new tail, and you've decided to bless starfish with the same talent.

Whazzup wit dat??

Congrats, wheelchair dancer!

Could they argue that God sees amputation as not needing healing? (And have you seen that ADAPT evolution chart?)

I am jealous that you got to see Savion Glover and I didn't.

I blame God.

(kidding, of course)

Congratulations, WCdancer!

I have to admit that this post was particularly mezmerizing because we have been looking for a basket like that- well, an affordable one- for a very long time. Very nice!
