Monday Quiz About Me
School is over for today, my son met 2 of his teachers and likes them both, I gave the kitchen and family room a good cleaning, and now I can relax doing my Monday quiz, courtesy of Heather at Acting Balanced.
I get to answer 4 questions, then ask one of my own for you folks to answer. Here we go:
1. If you found a $100 bill on the floor at the mall, what would you do?
If I found the money (without seeing someone drop it) I would pick it up and give it to my church. I did this once with a $20. The way I see it, it was an unexpected gift that I get to pass on to someone else.
2. What is one thing a friend could do that you would considering ending your friendship upon finding out?
Lie. Especially about me. Honesty is extremely important in friendship; if I can't trust a person I can't call them my friend.
3. When was the last time you had to say your 'sorry?'
There was a girl in my Awana class that was pulling out her eyebrows. I happened to catch her doing it and told her to stop. She was so embarrassed she began crying. I felt terrible, because it wasn't my intention to embarrass her, just to get her to stop. Thankfully she's a forgiving child.
4. In your words, define 'perfect.'
God. He is the only perfect being. Nothing else even comes close.
And now, my question (which doesn't follow the line of questioning above at all):
5. Car, van, SUV, pick-up truck - what do you prefer to drive?
I loved my SUV. It was tall so I could see over the small cars, had lots of space, and yet still handled like a car. Unfortunately it ate gas like a teenage boy eats everything in sight, and with the cost of gasoline these days, it wasn't a wise vehicle choice. I drive a 4-door sedan now, that I fill up once every 3 weeks. I miss my Montero Sport, but the Sonata is the right car for us now.
I'm first and foremost a Bible believing Christian. I'm a mother of 3, learning to deal with the changes God is doing in my life, learning to lean on Him and trust Him even when I don't understand, and learning to accept the changes He sees fit to accomplish His purpose in my life.
"I can't imagine anything more terrible than getting to the end of my life only to discover that God had so much more in mind for me - more freedom, more joy, more peace, more true effectiveness. And I had missed it all, simply because I refused to change." - Joanna Weaver, Having a Mary Spirit.
"In every change He faithful will remain." - Katharina von Schlegel
"Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory." - Warren Wiersbe
