Shory Bear (Denise) tagged me for these seven question

I, in turn, will pick 7 bloggers to answer 7 new questions. Here are the 7 questions she asked me:

1. Not counting attending church, what is your favorite activity that you consistently do on Sundays?

We visit the Grandparents , Steve's parents. 

2. At what age, or season in your life, do you feel you looked your best? Today, My face has peace. I look my best not stressed. At any age. It is a matter of my heart. Sure my chin is doubled, my weight is above what it could be. My heart is happy, that is when I look my best.

3. Would you rather win a personal makeover/shopping spree with an image consultant, a one room makeover/shopping spree with an interior designer, or a personal chef who would cater a fabulous meal for a party at your home?

The room make over, we could use a new sofa. I would love a little water feature too. A flat tv would take up less room. Gratitude for what we have makes it not something I pine however.

4. If a movie were made of your life, which actors would portray you, and your husband?

Jessica Tandy , Me. I think of a movie called Fried Green Tomatoes. She was so beautiful, dignified. When I am old I want to have lived a life where my heart did not get hard. Where growing old would be beautiful. Where my children are not embarrassed or ashamed of me. I want to be and example of courage/ Ever a friend of God not a religious pious old woman.
Mathew Roderick Would have to be my choice for Steve. In the movie Glory his heart toward those he lead was one that earned the respect and conviction of those he lead. 

"were all dirty in it, aint one of us clean" said his replacement for the flag bearer.
A flag bearer is the one who holds up the standard it the other fell. It was the extreme act of sacrifice. With hands full there would not be a weapon for self defense.
"I don't know that I be wanted this sir" was his reply
"I know what you mean" said Roderick's character

5. If you had the power to choose one of these, which would it be?
I would be taller.
I would never go gray.
I would always look younger than my age. 

Younger than my age. This is a gift I live with. It helps my children not to have a mom who looks like their grandma.

6. Which of these positive first impressions would you prefer to make?


7. Pie or Cake? 

Pie, pecan or a berry. Rhubarb is good too.

Now, I pick these 7 bloggers to answer 7 questions: Opps Shorty I answered the first 7 that were for you.

Here are the 7 questions: 
1) What is your favorite book of the Bible? 

2) Ice cream, or cookies?
Cookies, snicker doodles 

3) Cup half full, or half empty? 
Oh I am a woman cup over flowing.

4)Worst fear? 
That I would fail at raising the children through, dependence to independence and onto interdependence. If I were to fail at raising them with the ability to make wise choices. My desire is that they are empowered to STAND confident in who they have been created to be.

5) Favorite day of the week?
Friday. The family all comes home. Children are relaxed and the shoulders come down. Family movie night and the joy of no school or lunches to awaken to.

6) Favorite Holiday? 
Easter is my very favorite. I saw a vision 32 years ago of a White light through a tunnel opening, hands reaching out to me. It was the day that I rose out of the darkness that was my life and began the journey that freed me some three years later. 
At Easter that day comes alive as did HE

7) Ever been out of the country?
Yes to Russia twice to bring home the children. Once in 1998 to get Dove, and then to get Dash in 2001. Trust me when I say
"we live in the best country on earth.

Goodness I have to go to bed. I'll choose tomorrow. I don't have time to tonight sorry.
Thank you Denise for pulling the writer out of me tonight. Felt real good.

I enjoyed your answers.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
