I would like to thank my friend Delvalina at Falling in Love with Jesus for nominating me for the Sunshine Award. Delvalina blogs from her home in Indonesia, and she is proof that blogging makes the world just a little bit smaller!
We have been blog friends for some time now, and she is such a faith-filled person. I hope you will all go and visit her. You may remember her name. I was one of the winners of her blog contest a few months ago.
As part of her rules for the nomination, Delvalina has provided some questions for me to answer. I am very glad for the direction. It’s a little easier than trying to think of interesting things to say…
1. Your most favorite Bible Story in Old and New Testament?
Wow. Great question.
Ok, Old Testament first. I love following the life of Moses. One of my favorite stories is the battle against the Amalekites. In order to win the battle, Moses had to hold up his hands. As long as he did that, the Israelites would do well.
It was so tiring that Aaron and Hur had to support his hands as he sat on a rock. It shows me that God gives us the key to success, but the path is not always easy. And we need each other’s help!
New Testament. I am always drawn to the courage of the woman with the hemmorhage. I suppose working in an OB/GYNE office makes me more sensitive to this poor woman, but there are so many themes at work in this small story. She had so much faith and courage! She was desperate. To me, that’s when we are the most reliant on the Lord. We try our best, but it nothing works, we have to rely completely on our faith. Just like she did.
2. One favorite thing you do in the morning.
I am not a morning person. I’m more of a late afternoon/ evening person. So…my favorite thing in the morning (besides prayer) is coffee and the crossword puzzle. And quiet. Love that quiet.
3. Do you have a blog you love to visit by you won’t leave a comment (secret admirer of another blog?)
Nope. If I visit, I generally comment.
4. Your current favorite worship song and singer?
I mentioned in a recent post that I am enjoying Better Than a Halleluja by Amy Grant.
5. Your comfort daily style?
I usually wear jeans and a sweatshirt. I’m always cold. I might wear a teeshirt and sweater just to switch it up.
6. Who is the person that you really want to meet now?
Well, I harbor this dream that someday, everyone who visits this blog would meet and go out to dinner with me. That would be so much fun! And so many of you know each other, it would give everyone a chance to visit.
7. Are you in kind of 40 days of Christ’s Passion?
My husband and I do observe the season of Lent. We attend the Stations of the Cross on Friday evenings, and do not eat meat that day. Rather than ‘give up’ anything for Lent, I am trying to establish some good habits in faith, especially in prayer.
8. Book that you are reading currently?
I tend to have about three books going at once. I did just finish Dad is Fat which was very funny. I am also reading Joel Osteen, who is such an encouraging writer. And I am in the middle of a historical novel.
9. What country that you most want to be visited?
I have never been to Australia. The photos I see of Sidney Harbor are so beautiful.
10. Foreign language that you have wanted to learn?
When I was younger, I took a class in American Sign Language. I really don’t remember any of it now, but I’d love to take some classes again.
Thank you for those thought-provoking questions! And thank you Delvalina, for naming me as one of your ten Sunshine Award nominees.
I would like you all to be nominated too! Just grab the image, and answer the same questions that I answered. (They are such good ones!) You can name five to ten bloggers yourself to receive the award, or open it up to everyone.
I wish we could go out to dinner…do you like Italian food? (If not, what kind of food do you like to get at a restaurant?)
May God bless us, and continue to grace us to be sunshine for each other.
