Today we made the decision that will make October insane, but so fun! We’re going to London in 2 weeks to serve at Hillsong Conference Europe for 5 days and finish our final subjects from 1st yr at College! YAY!! Which means I’ll be back only 3 days before James gets here, and he’ll be staying for 12 days. On top of this I should be working a bit too, so I don’t fall way behind. Busy and fun, just the way I like it (: How’s your life on the busy-scale?

In Australia it’s 22nd of September which means Happy 4 Months for James and I (:
I got the best present ever from James. At first I thought he was sending me breakfast cereals, but that was just to cover the real present up, which were charts for You Are the Music In Me (which has become “our” song)! And the awesomest cd ever! He feared I wouldn’t like it, but I love it!
Breakfast cereal for Happy 4 Months? I don’t hope so..
But no, there was charts!! Oh joy!
Going back to church now (: Super-yay!

Argh. I was gonna write a post on the thought of being a woman, but I got stuck in this one line I read saying “abortion doesn’t make you ‘un-pregnant’. It makes you the mother of a dead child”. And once again the subject of abortion had pissed me off.
I know this is a very touchy subject with a lot of different opinions between a lot of different people, but luckily this is my blog, so I can write whatever I think and feel about the matter. And then you can comment away all you want about your thoughts. (:
It saddens me when I hear about people choosing to have an abortion. I don’t understand how mums-to-be can look at the life growing on the inside of them like it’s nothing and just decide to throw it away. From my point of view, this child growing inside the tummy has been in God’s dreams since the beginning of time. God has written everyday of it’s life, but it may all be destroyed with just one decision of a free-willed woman. What is it that makes it so hard to look on what’s growing inside of you as a life, a person with a personality. The soul, the spirit, the personality of the baby was created even before it entered mummy’s tummy. Yet so man women decide to not have it because of their circumstances, say education, work, housing, life in general. I can understand the idea of that, but do they not realise that the moment the egg is fertilised that it’s no longer about them? It’s about the child. It’s time we protect them.
I myself can’t wait to have babies. I pray I’ll be that fortunate. Feel free to throw in whatever you think about the subject, agree or disagree.

Suddenly “everyone” (3 people) are reading my blog. Maybe I’ll be the new Blondinbella? :p The question is – can I keep this up?
I’m still fighting a cold. It’s been on and off all year, so that’s fun. I’ve been trying to keep off dairy-products as much as possible, so this morning I made the wise choise of not having that glass of milk that I wanted, but I had rice-porridge instead. Later at work when I was coughing really badly I remembered the main ingredience in rice- porridge except for rice. Milk is of course the only product with milk in it. I think my brain doesn’t function properly all the time.

til ære for folk som jeg ikke visste om som visstnok leser bloggen min. (:
Her kommer alt (vel.. kanskje ikke alt, men litt) du trenger å vite om Hillsong International Leadership College og det å komme seg dit.
Et år, eller flere, på HILC er vel verdt det. Bortsett fra fantastisk undervisning, så lærer du så ekstremt mye av alt det praktiske du får være med på å gjøre i menigheten. hillsongcollege.com er plassen for å lese mer om de forskjellige linjene. Jeg gikk på Worship and Creative Arts (nå Worship Music) og det var helt fantastisk! Flott for de med hjerte for lovsang og musikk. Det er inntak i Januar og Juli, med Graduation i Desember. Januar er egentlig skolestart i Australia, men de har et Juli inntak også på grunn av alle de internasjonale studentene. Hvilket leder meg til mitt neste punkt. Du lærer så mye om deg selv utenfor klasserommet, særlig fordi det er så mange kulturer representert ved skolen. Du får rett og slett venner fra hele verden! Utmerket!
De kostnadene man bør regne med er flybilletter, visum (hvilket du helt enkelt kan få på immi.gov.au) og student forsikring. Ellers de vanlige utgiftene som leie, mat, regninger og så videre.. Australia er et ganske billig land i forhold til Norge, men det betyr også at det er lavere lønning der.
Opplevelsesmessig sett så kan det ikke helt forklares. Man må nesten oppleve det selv. De har en Kingdom-minded kultur der som man ikke finner noen andre plasser, derfor vanskelig å forklare. Det jeg kan si er at det kommer til å forandre deg så masse. Kom med et åpent hjerte og en villig ånd! Det er viktig.
åkei.. klokka er litt sen og jeg kommer ikke på så mye mer nå. men jeg håper det hjalp. (:
