10 Things You Might Not Know About Me

I tried doing this earlier with 25 things about me, I had it all typed and posted, I thought. But then it never went up to the blog. So I guess It is wondering around in the blog hemisphere somewhere. So I thought I would do it smaller this time and do only 10.

1.I am trying to get closer to the Lord, by praying, reading and studying and also putting into practice what I am learning.( I am ashamed to say that I have not always made an effort to study Gods word on a daily basis.)

2. I am very thankful to be chosen by God to be one of His children and to be able to serve HIM.

3. I love my husband more today than 28 years ago. He is the love of my life.The love I had for him when we married seems so minusucle, now. If you have been married anytime at all you know what I am talking about.

4. My children are truly a blessing from God.(This includes the 2 I gave birth to, and the 2 that I did not that are now my children, also.) I thank God that He loaned Nikki and Jesse to me for a little while to live in my home. What a joy and blessing that you both have been to my life.

5. I am as bad as all the other grandmothers before me. Clayton, need I say more.

6. I love to travel. (My dream vacation would be to travel the world for about a year or however long it took and not have to even think about money).

7. I love to swim and ride horses.(As an adult I have always wanted a swimming pool and a horse with a pasture, barn and all that one would need to have a horse). For whatever reason God has not allowed me that privilege, and He knows best.

8. I also love to read and I am trying to branch out in my reading and not just read one type of thing. I love to crosstitch, especially Santa Clauses -( I like the look of Santa, but not the idea of Santa.)And I love to Cook, could you have ever guessed that one, and my favorite things to cook are sweets.

9. I love the Victorian Era. All of it, the houses, the clothes, the pictures and the romance of it all. My dream house would be a Victorian style house decorated in Victorian era things.

10. I don't like dieting and exercising.(but it is necessary for me, because you see the Lord just blesses some of us more than others, HaHA)

What are some things we don't know about you.

Until Next Time

This was the scripture for the day in my little daily devotion book thought you might enjoy it also.

Psalms 9: 9-10
The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
