1. What gives you goosebumps?
Oh, a few things.....A heartfelt testimony on the power of God in someones life.... Patriotic music.....many voices raised in worship.
2. Halloween-are you a lover or a hater? Okay, that sounds harsh...Halloween-yay or nay?
I think I will have to be careful here or this question could take me HOURS, haha....My feelings for Halloween can be somewhat mixed. I guess I would have to say overall I am a nay. I do love the little trick or treaters in their little costumes and desires for candy and some fun. But the with the origin of it all being from the occult and full of evil, it is hard to get totally on board. I'd like to think that a lot of that is not still being practiced today, but I would be naive to believe that. I don't decorate, I don't "celebrate" it per-say, but have always enjoyed the little ones, and passed out candy to the kids. I missed that last year since moving to the senior citizens park we don't have trick or treaters anymore, haha. When my kids were young we hit the Harvest parties at church. They got to dress up and get candy and have fun, and the scary evil stuff was left out of it. I think there is always a way to redeem the time.
3. Can you respect someone you do not trust, and can you trust someone you do not respect?
This question too may take some time, lol. I guess I would have to say that I think they go hand in hand. However, I think I can respect someone's ability let's say without being able to trust them necessarily. But for me to truly trust someone I MUST respect them.
4. Apples or oranges? Yes, you have to choose.
Oh, an easy one....It would be apples for sure....A juicy good apple is just hard to beat. But when you add in apple pie, apple fritters, apple crisp, cider, applesauce, I could go on but I won't, you get the idea.
5. What is something you wish was in your town? (shop, restaurant, attraction, etc)
Well truthfully I live right smack in the middle of some of the best restaurants to be found, every store you can imagine, a HUGE wonderous Mall etc. But I WOULD love to have a Hobby Lobby by us...They have one our by Mel's, and I loved it.
6. What non-food item is in your refrigerator or freezer?
I have ice packs in my freezer that I used pretty much every day on my knees... : )
7. Are you at all superstitious?
No, not at all. I guess again to believe in superstition would be contrary to my Christian beliefs. I believe that nothing happens outside of the will of God. He controls our very breath and the whole universe all at the same time. We have our free wills, and therefore make our own decisions and choices everyday, but as Christians I do not believe we are controlled by some other mysterious force or power.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Again, random thoughts for me are such a common thing, haha, but I will try and pull out just a couple or so for this morning. I am loving the weather again recently. Cool mornings and evenings, and lots of warm sunshine during the day. I am getting my thoughts together for Thanksgiving (all of my kids are coming, YAY) and making plans for the "Meet and Greet" party for Sam. I can't wait for everyone to see him. I am praising God this morning that he is up to 8 pounds 13 ounces and is doing soo well, and also that James and Larissa have arrived safely in Italy.
OK, I did pretty good for me....sometimes a post takes me soo long. I am off to my mom's! Hope you all have a wonderful day!
