This is who I am (I have been tagged)

I am….....me- follower of Christ, wife, mother, friend
I want......to do what’s right
I have.......more than I need, I am blessed
I wish.......that God would bring us a contract on our house before Chuck leaves for his new job
I hate.......feeling overwhelmed
I miss.......my family and friends that we have moved away from
I fear..........someone stealing my wallet
I feel...........like God has big things in store for our family
I hear.........birds chirping and the cows mooing in the back field
I smell........humid air (if you lived in the “tropics” you would understand)
I crave..........good Mexican food (La Hacienda with yummy house dressing)
I search.......the scriptures for encouragement
I wonder......what God will do in our lives
I regret........ever hurting someone’s feelings
I love...........being a Mom
I ache...........when my children or husband hurt
I care........…about our world…needy families, hungry people, orphaned children, lost souls, persecuted pastors, sacrificing soldiers, wasting resources, filling land fills…(my list goes on and on)
I always.........am prepared (my car is the rolling pharmacy)
I am not….…as clean and organized as I appear to be (look inside the cupboards)
I believe.........in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord….
I dance...........with my kids when we rock out to 80’s music
I sing...............to songs even when I don’t know the words
I cry.................when I can’t take it anymore (I should let those tears out more often)
I don’t always..........put my shoes away when I take them off
I fight........the urge to be honest every time about everything....(bite my tongue sometimes)
I write.........comments on blogs when I visit (even if I don’t have the most creative thing to say) so the person know that someone is out there reading and connecting with them
I never.........hardly ever drive over the speed limit (I am a rule keeper)
I listen.........as closely as I can (but I hate when I get distracted in a conversation)
I need...........to work on getting up earlier
I am happy……by choice. I will focus on the positives in my life and be grateful for them.


I was tagged by my blogging friend. I thought this type of a list was interesting and fun. I want to hear from all of you and I will "tag" a few friends...Greta, Ginny, and Stacia.

This is SO YOU!!! Everything you answered is very true and very vulnerable! What a great way to reflect on one's person. I love you for all you have been, are and ever hope to be. We owe it all to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!
BTW - you write very well too!

Hey...I love WHO you are. You are a great sister and friend. I want to hear mooing cows too...and I am totally with ya on the hate overwhelming feelings...I already feel totally over the edge now and maxed out...and it will only get worse this last month of packing, craming in last minute visits and traveling back to the US. Ugh..."He is the Rock that is higher than I" is my theme song!!
