Monday Quiz About Me
It's late, but there's still time for my Monday quiz post. Here's how it works: there's FOUR QUESTIONS that everyone can answer and then there's the option to add a fifth question of my own for those who are visiting my blog to answer in the comment section, along with commenting on the four standard questions I answered. If you want to give it a try, visit Heather at Acting Balanced.
1. What is your favorite charity to donate to?
Samaritan's Purse. The organization is run by the Graham family and helps communities all around the world, especially children. You can learn about them here.
2. When was the last time you danced?
It's been so long I can't remember.
3. How do you show someone you care about them?
I cook for them! Or bake. Yummy food makes people smile.
4. Do you send holiday cards?
I like to but it seems most folks don't send cards anymore. If I get 5 cards all year it's a lot. I do like giving cards along with baked goods to my neighbors for Christmas.
And for my question:
5. Have you watched any Christmas movies this month?
I'm not a big fan of television, but I do love watching cheesy Christmas movies on Lifetime and Hallmark channels. What can I say, I'm a softy when it comes to Christmas romance.
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
