So what is on your want-to-do list that you just can't manage to get to? Leave a comment or a link to your blog with a list. I'd love to know what everyone else is up to.
O LORD, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it.
1. Which is worse? Being gossipped about or being lied to?
Having experienced both, I feel being lied to is worse. Communication comes to a halt when you're not dealing with truth.
2. I see that a lot of ladies out there in blogville are "Starbucks" gals... What is your favorite "Starbucks" drink?
Oh, my! Can any one of my readers guess? Let me give you a hint: It starts with PEPPERMINT and ends with MOCHA!!! If you need me to elaborate on this answer, please see this post.
Well, seeing as I have PLENTY of embarrassing moments to choose from, this shouldn't be too difficult. One of them goes all the way back to a piano recital when I was 16. It was my last recital. I was the oldest student that my teacher had. Of course, we had to memorize the piece we played. Not a problem! I could've played mine backwards and forwards with one hand tied behind my back. When it was my turn I walked to the piano, sat down with my hands in my lap and thought about the first notes of my song. Then... nothing. I couldn't remember a thing. My teacher came to the piano to see what the problem was, and I told her I couldn't remember how my piece began. She tried to play a few keys to jog my memory, and they weren't right. I don't remember exactly what I played that day. I just remembered that I played something. It was one of the most humiliating days of my life. It sure wasn't the "blaze of glory" that I would've preferred. But I survived.
See question #2 above. I can easily spend $3.60 for a little cup of mocha happiness.
That is definitely hard for me.
I am not a parent, but I have parents and have observed other parents. I would say that parents need to be honest with their kids about their failures and admit to their kids when they've been wrong.
What is your favorite hobby?
I've been working on a new crochet project. I'm pretty excited about this one, but I can't tell you what it is or who it's for because I don't know if they read my blog.
It took me forever to choose the pattern because I'm a bit of a novice and have to read the pattern directions carefully in order to know if I'll be able to actually follow it. Being a self-taught crocheter, some directions still don't make sense to me, even on the patterns that say "Easy". I had purchased a pattern book off eBay several months ago, so I've been waiting to try something from that book for quite some time.
I chose this pattern with wavy shells, and I love it. Five rows are now complete, so I think I'm on my way now. It's so exciting when the design starts really taking off. I've found it very easy to follow, and I'm just working through it a couple rows at a time so as not to stress myself out over something that should be relaxing and enjoyable.
The color of yarn I picked out is delicious, too. That's about the only word I can use to describe it. A variegation of pastel blues, pinks and yellows. I could almost eat it. (Does anyone else know what I'm talking about here, or am I the only crazy girl who thinks such things?)
Don't you love making personal gifts? I've mentioned it before, but I just can't express the enjoyment that comes while I'm creating something to give to a special person. I think about them while I work. I imagine it could even be a ministry, not only in giving of myself but even being prayerful for the person as I work. I guess that's something I hadn't considered before. I am going to try to keep that in mind the next time I set out to work on my project.
Since I hadn't posted since Monday, I thought I'd let you know I'm still alive and at least share this little sunshine from my day.
1. Each player starts with 5 gifts that they would want for the New Year.
2. People who are “CARDED” (let's call it tagged) need to write their own Blog about their 5 things & post these rules.
3. At the end of your Blog, you need to choose 5 people to get “CARDED” and list their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a COMMENT telling them they’re “CARDED”, and to read your Blog.
My Spiritual Wishlist:
I don't know if 5 things in the spiritual wishlist is enough. Couldn't I go on and on? It's quite obvious to me that the second wishlist is so much more important than all on the first list. I don't need any of the material stuff, but I desperately need all the spiritual stuff.
Alright, I guess it's time for me to tag 5 people. Hmmm... do I know 5 other bloggers? Let's see. How about...
I'm sure there are other things I'll think of once I hit "publish," but this is what is first on my mind at this moment.
