    Aw!!! Thank you, Brenda!! It's so humbling to know God has blessed me with this honor. It was the first time I entered the contest without the thought of getting to the finals--I just wanted to see what kind of feedback I could get after I had some professional edits done to it. I guess I"m going to Nashville!!!!!!!!

      Yay!!! Oh I wish I could be in Nashville supporting you! We'll actually be driving through Nashville on our way home that Saturday ... maybe we should stop and hang around the hotel ... hmmm. Have to think about that.
