Tag, I'm it...Too!

I've been "tagged" by my blogger friend Laura to post 6 random things about myself. So, here goes. Let's see...

I once survived a tornado that ripped through my hometown. My Dad was actually out on the road when it was passing through our city. I can "smell" a tornado coming, too.
I dreamed of a career in the WNBA, but barely made the cut for the varsity basketbal team...needless to say, dream shattered.
I met my now-husband when I was in high school, but we didn't start dating until my sophomore year in college. We got to know each other while singing in our BCM praise band. We shared a hymnal! :) The most attractive thing about him to me was that he had surrendered to the ministry (and that's saying alot, 'cause he's HANDSOME)
One of my favorite things is enjoying coffee with creamer in the mornings.
My first car was a Chevrolet Celebrity stationwagon...also known as the "cool-mobile"!

Good reading...

As I mentioned in an earlier blog, I have started reading Lies Women Believe by N. DeMoss.

Wow, what a powerful statement that is...if one can even say it! Regarding the way that God loves us the same as He loves His Son... Again, Hanna W. Smith said: "If we believed this, could we ever have an anxious or rebellious thought again? Would we not believe in every conceivable circumstance that…

Pictures as promised

Alive and typin'

Wow! I haven't posted since the 16th of August? I'm probably in jeopardy of being fired from my blogging position...good thing it's not my paying job! September has stormed in thanks to Gustav and summer is on its way to a close. This has been such a great outdoor season and Dylan and I have tried to eat it up on my days off - savoring every adventure not knowing where next summer will find us. I made the lady at our water park let us keep our expired punch-card because I wanted it for Dylan's scrapbook. How pathetically motherly is that!!
We spent the long holiday weekend with my parents for Labor Day. We enjoyed their company and their help. We did a few weekender projects and also made time for fun. Pictures to follow soon, I promise.
For those of you who are keeping up with our chaplaincy progress, Tim was recently granted a necessary medical waiver regarding his ear (he had surgery to correct some hearing loss a few years ago). So the next steps he is fac…
