  • I have heard all my life how much God loves me. So much so he sent his only son to die for me. This I know. Sometimes, I wonder how he could love someone like me. I am indeed thankful for it. Although I don’t deserve it.
  • I need to work on my own Blog Award, which is on the back burner. I need to take time with it again, as I enjoyed reading everyone’s responses. It is Random Acts of Kindness…RAKA. Look it up.
  • I have a life verse. It is Psalm 139: 23-24/ Since I attended a Christian school all my years, for our graduation we had to pick out a life verse. This one spoke to me, as it still does today. I do not want anything to keep me from entering heaven and being beside our Lord.
  • I think my stories of BLUE, are my favorite. This story is about a little girl who experienced a lustful adoptive dad, and her many struggles and her just wanting to belong to people who really genuinely love her. She experienced and still does things that no child should have to endure.
  • My favorite hymn is any that give me goosebumps on my arms. That is when it is speaking to my heart and makes me feel God’s love.
  • Pizza with cheese, please!
  • I do not have a testimony, but I should do that.
  • Our Thanksgiving traditions are just getting underway since my kids are just starting their families. I cannot wait till the day when we are loaded up on family members sitting around our eating table.
  • Favorite Bible Character is Job I identify with some of his personal battles and feelings.
  • Pumpkin Pie is actually my favorite.
  • I could never fathom how much our Lord loves me, it is beyond human reason. I just know he does.

I enjoyed answering these questions. Thank you!

Do More Than Just Exist!~Wordle 407

wordle 407

It takes courage when all around you is falling. When you are feeling so vulnerable and your soul has been battered. I know how this can be. I have personally felt such a way. Courage though is something you reach down inside and find.

Some people’s mantra is to simply exist. They are not doing anything that takes courage. They don’t learn anything from other’s stories. They tend to lean towards that disappearing wall. The one that one day will not hold them any longer. Don’t just exist. We can be so much more. We need to talk to other’s, learn from them and their struggles. Everyone has had a struggle or two.

Let’s find our own courage, listen to other’s and their struggles, learn what we can, and do more than just exist.

Thank you for reading 🙂

Creativity is a release

For you, creativity is first and foremost a form of expression: it creates a special link between the internal and external worlds. It allows you to get a grasp of your powerful emotions, by moulding them into a physical form. In fact, the most important thing for you is to be able to release your emotions. You need to be able to touch them or look at them in concrete form, and to do that you have to find a way to make them come alive. This is how your desires and anxieties take shape. Keeping things bottled up creates a tension that can only be resolved once you have expressed how you feel. This means you have to be strong enough not to let yourself get swept away by chaotic impulses; if you turn your creative urges on everyday life — making a picnic, singing to the baby, choosing what to wear — you can express yourself while staying rooted in reality. Creativity is principally cathartic. It relieves a deep need, an almost primal, archaic impulse. For you, being creative is about having the power to give form to something you feel, to those deep personal issues that are often raw and disorganised. For these reasons you are usually attracted to art that demands physicality, that allows you to express what’s inside, and that unites spontaneity, strength, freedom, power and movement. • To find out about how to tap into your creative side, see our feature in the August issue out now. What have you done to pursue your dreams lately? How about today?

8.When you think of your home, what immediately comes to mind? Safe place

9,Describe the greatest adventure of your life The greatest would be having a family

10. When did you last push the boundaries of your comfort zone? Every time I write a poem.

I nominate anyone who wishes to participate, using the same questions I was given.
