Sunshine Blogger Award

I want to thank Vivian for this nomination! This is her blog.

If you haven’t visited Vivian’s blog, you’re missing out! Not only will you love the blog, you will love her as well! Vivian is a TBI warrior whose hope and strength comes from God.

” . . . the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 NIV

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 NIV

Viv’s Questions for Me:

1) What is the bible verse/passage which you turn to the most for comfort?

(This one is easy.) “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 NIV

2) What are you most thankful for today?

In addition to my wonderful family, I am thankful for the dear friends I have come to know through Blogging. Ya’ll are my BBF’s (Best Blogger Friends)! These are just a few. I like to print out your pics so I can see you when I read your blog! I think it will be so exciting when we all meet in Heaven! Hugs all around!

3) What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon as a child?

I loved Popeye! But I hated The Three Stooges because they hit each other! They were both on the same program, The Sally Starr Show. I would go outside while the Three Stooges were on. When Popeye came on, my mom would call me from the window. One day I met Sally Starr and she gave me an autographed picture! (Don’t be jealous, now!)

3) When did you last clean out your closet? (hehehe, I tagged my daughter on this post)

2 weeks ago! (Sort of, kind of)

4) What is your primary love language ie, acts of service, words of affirmation, physical touch, quality time, or gift giving?

See for yourself: “Your Results: Physical Touch” (Hmmmm, That’s not right. I said I like it when somebody cleans my condo!)

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 NIV

5) Which Bible character can you relate to because of what they went through?

Joseph, because even though life wasn’t fair, God turned it around for good. And God will do that for every one who looks to Him! Joseph said to his brothers,

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Genesis 50:20 NIV

6) What is your favorite board game?

I love most board games, but not Monopoly because I never win! I like Scrabble and Ticket To Ride. I also love Sudoku. We used to have Bible Trivia when my kids were growing up. It’s a great family game!

7) What is or was your favorite subject in school?

My favorite subject was math because it made sense (unlike things like poetry). I didn’t develop a love for writing until I was a young adult. (Good thing I did my homework and listened to my teachers anyway!)

8) What do you enjoy doing during your down time?

Reading, and reading. I also like to read.

9) What major obstacle in your life has God helped you overcome?

Alcohol. It was nothing but trouble. Trust me.

10) What musical instrument(s) can you play?

A Recorder, you know, the one all kids in America learn to play in music class. However, I haven’t picked one up in about 60 years. (Does that count?)

11) If you could go back 10 years, what major decisions would you change?

The one thing I would change is this: I would live close to the Lord all the days of my life. I would have never wandered.

  2. Yayy, I made the BBF list! 🙂 Enjoyed reading your answers. It’s funny that math was your favorite subject, but you ended up a blogger! I always liked math, too. The subject that has always been a struggle for me is science–especially science labs. Guess I’m not a hands-on learner!

  3. I want to follow her blog, but when I clicked the link I was taken to a site that isn’t set up like this Reader, so I can’t find a follow button or even a like button for her posts. Hopefully I can figure it out later on a computer as opposed to this tiny phone.
