    Hey, guys. I really need prayer for all of the stress in life right now. I have way too many things going on and everything is just wearing me down. That’s the main reason I haven’t been able to be on SE with all you of recently. The schedule, the stress, and the lack of sleep already took their toll and only dragging me further and further into a downward spiral. I can’t seem to keep with anything. A couple of things will be over this week, but more are jumping in to take their places, and I feel like I’m on a tightrope and I’m falling. I’m trying really hard to rely on God right now and trust that He is sufficient, but I’m struggling. I love you guys.

    429 words *hides face in embarrassment*

    Now I’m just gonna drop off the face of the earth for a little while. I won’t be on here for maybe a month or so due to homework. I love you guys even if I can’t be here very much for awhile.

    @bama-rose This may be the best encouragement I’ve had in a long time. Thanks for the reminder! Never quit. That’s why we have SE. To help and encourage and hold each other accountable. I am so thankful for you guys!

    @chalice I needed the sermon. Thanks. And great quote by the way. I love that movie.

    @gabriellepollack I’m also mostly on pinterest for fun, but I’d love to see a SE board! I’d be one to enjoy writing prompts and character inspiration. Just my two-cents worth. 🙂

    So I forgot to weigh in here yesterday so here’s my total so far(not including today): 1356 words. @eden-anderson you have me beat. I haven’t had the time to write or get on SE in a couple of weeks and I’m kind of not in a rhythm. I’m hoping to get quite a bit done over Thanksgiving break though.

    @eden-anderson I’m at 940. Also my total since the word war. *shrugs* not bad, not good. I have a lot of homework today so I probably won’t get much done today, but I’m hoping to have some time tomorrow afternoon.

    @eden-anderson At this point my goal is just to write at least something! If I have the time to write more than a sentence, then I go for 200 words a day, but my life is crazy so I usually have to settle with 20. At least I’m writing nearly every day, which is a major improvement over what I was doing before. *sighs* I wish I had more time. But who doesn’t?

    @pursuewisdom I’m totally fine with questions. I love talking about myself! *flips hair* *blushes in embarrassment at how awful that sounds* I’m really not a total jerk, I promise!

    Also @evelyn. Guys, huge Narnia fan here! I love them all, but my favorite is and will always be Prince Caspian. I just love it!!!! I get what you mean about needing more from the Golden Age, though. That would be awesome.

    And yeah, I saw how many times you’ve seen Les Mis. I’m jealous actually. I don’t own it, so I’ve only seen it twice while at a friend’s house.

    @pursuewisdom HELLOOOOO!!! I’m an ENFP! And I love almost everything you mentioned! Minus of course the few things I’ve never heard of, but I’m sure I’d love them too if I had. I am a huge Les Mis fan. I just listened to the soundtrack all the way through on Monday(for the 87th time) and I’ve been singing “Empty Chairs and Empty Tables” all week(much to my family’s annoyance).

    I’m not too active on the “everyone” forums, I usually stick within my guild(New Wessex is the best by the way), so you probably won’t see too much of me unless you end up in there, but I’ll try and be a little more “out there” as well. Welcome to SE!

    (I just realized how intimidating my first paragraph sounded. Sorry.)

    Friends?

    Thanks, guys. Things are looking up a little, but I’m still struggling some.


    @ethryndal
    I know that’s really tough. My great uncle has cancer right now too, and my mom actually just went to go visit our neighbor who also has cancer and is in hospice. We don’t believe either of them is saved and it’s really hard to know what to do. I’ll definitely be praying!

    Hey, guys! I haven’t posted anything on this Prayer requests thread yet so I hope I’m not imposing. I really need prayer right now guys! Not anything big maybe, but a lot of little things in my life are just pushing me really close to the edge of an emotional breakdown. I have a four-page research paper, 45-pages of reading and 2 hours worth of videos to watch all due tomorrow. In the same class. I also have tests in two other subjects I have to take by Wednesday and I’m leaving tomorrow morning on a college visit. I just finished my volleyball season and as a senior it’s my last. My emotions are EVERYWHERE right now. Just pray! I’m struggling and it’s really hard to lean on God right now even though I need Him now most of all.

    @eden-anderson @literatureforthelight @chalice Greetings, fellow Saxons! And yes, we are definitely the best guild! All the amazing relationships are just, well… amazing! Not to mention the awesome tips and encouragement I’ve gotten even only being in New Wessex for a couple of months.

    And, goodness, there are a lot of questions to respond to. I have so many favorite books, I don’t know if I can choose, but pretty much anything C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, or Jane Austin. I like the Mobile Bay Chronicles, too, but I haven’t read much else by the author and I can’t come up with her name off the top of my head.

    Soundtracks? LOTR, StarWars, and(can get an “amen”?) Les Miserables.

    @selah-chelyah I don’t see a message from you. Are you sure you got the right Alana Ward? My profile pic is a butterfly and I only have like three boards, mostly boring ones.
