"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you....For I am the Lord, your God...." Isaiah 43:1-3

almost ready

so my backpack arrived yesterday! it´s here and I call him Evan (that wasn´t my idea -giving a name to it but... :)
Evan - because I love the meaning :
It is of Welsh origin. Variant of a Gaelic name anglicised as John (Hebrew) "the Lord is gracious". In Celtic, the name means "young warrior". In Welsh, it means "God is Good". It is also used as a short form of Evangelos, which means "good messenger" in Greek. In Hebrew, Evan means "rock".

here´s the picture of me with Evan - I payed for it myself (with money I earned last summer) so it´s completly mine :)

and it´s gorgeous - all the pockets and straps and zippers and velcro everywhere :) and I will take it as "carry on board" backpack so I can start thinking about the way how to pack it :)
+ ouch next week is another round of my hepatitis vaccination - if you don´t like needles don´t look because I´m planning to take a picture of the shot :D

Shots dont hurt me as much anymore. The last time I got a shot was when I was eight.

Somehow things mean much more to us when we have paid for it with our hard earned money.
