     A brilliant friend of mine (Hi Amy) called her new boyfriend a 'gentleman savage' on Facebook this week, and it struck a chord ...

Consider Yourself Tagged!!

I've been tagged!! My pal over at MishMash Maggie asked her friends to answer these 8 questions. and so without further ado, I shall answer them : )
My Eight Questions...

1. What is your favorite Bible verse? How did it become your favorite? (If you don’t have a single favorite, please share one of your faves.) I love, Love, LOVE all the verses that start with, "...and it came to pass...." Keeps me focused on the fact that time is short, misery and hardship don't last forever and that we should be about the Master's business instead of arguing about the color of the pews or where the choir should stand. I also LOVE the verse in Psalms that reads, "Be still and know that I am God." How often in our hustle and bustle of life, do we rush right past God while talking on the phone, texting a friend, scheduling a meeting, picking up and dropping off the kids, dry-cleaning or dinner and trying to stay caught up on the laundry. OOPS...guilty!

2. What is currently on your nightstand? I dump my heart and brain on my nightstand... what's on yours?? I don't have a nightstand, but on my bookshelf headboard, there are the 43 books I've read since moving into this house in the end of June, plus 2 Bibles, a Concordance, 3 candles, lip balm, a phone book, Dan's notes from the Men's Seminar 2 weeks ago, a picture of my handsome hubby and one of my best friend, one of the family and of course, the alarm clock. Oh, and 3 elastic hair ties, a barrette, a matchbox car and a candy bar wrapper. And a monkey shaped lamp...It's cute, I swear! Hmmm, I don't even know WHAT that implies about me. Can I just go back to saying I don't have a nightstand?? ; )

3. What place have you not traveled to but would like to? Why? Oh, the choices! I'd like to visit Australia someday, and Hawaii, and take an Alaskan cruise, but I'd really like to take a trip to a resort area of Mexico because I've been to Mexico four times on mission trips and only saw the ugly/poor/sad things about it. I want to see the pretty side.

4. What is your favorite snack? Just about anything covered in salt will do, but my all time fave snack is mini pretzel twists and french onion dip with a huge glass of sweet iced tea.

5. Why motivates you to blog? A need to share myself, my family and my creativity with others. It started out as simply a way to keep my family in IL posted on our life here in NM, and now, I just can't STOP...ha ha ha!

6. Which person from the Bible (besides Jesus) are you most looking forward to meeting? Well, today, since I recently read a book called "A Woman Named Damaris" by Janette Oke, I'd like to meet Damaris that was mentioned BY NAME in Acts. Why was she singled out? What did she do? Why didn't they tell her story, just saying her name and moving on. What is her story....inquiring minds want to know!

7. What brings out the best in you... what brings out the worst? People (teenage boys especially) in need of mothering bring out the best in me. I go right into high gear and feed them. Not just their bellies, but their hearts, and their souls. Moving brings out the worst. All the disorganization, the not knowing where anything is, the complete destruction of our routine, balance and lifestyle just does NOT work for me. I better DIE in this house!

8. What characteristic of God are you the most grateful for? Oh my...that's a toughie! I suppose His sovereignty, that allows us to trust when all seems lost and we can't see where we are going. Knowing that He is in control when I am obviously NOT, is a comforting thought. Of course, His love which sent Jesus to the cross, can't be overlooked either. It's what allows us the opportunity to have a relationship with Him.
Thanks, this was fun. Can't wait to read other's answers!! ~K~
