Four Things x Six Questions = 24 Things

My friend Patty at Girlfriends in God tagged me for the 4 Things Meme…It’s amazing how much we almost forget – or that we try to forget until it’s time to fill out one of these things!
Here’s my list:

1. Four jobs I have had in my life:

Waitress at a Mexican Restaurant where NOT ONE Mexican owned or worked. I once spilled an entire tray of drinks right on top of a woman’s head. Thankfully, she was literally dripping with forgivenes.

Customer Service Supervisor/ Account Executive for a mail order company. Really cool when celebrities called in! Not so cool when a rich guy gets a ball point pen instead of his kids number one requested Christmas gift on Christmas Eve when it is too late to do anything about it. Just why would you wait to get your kids number one requested Christmas gift 2 days before Christmas?

Admissions Assistant at Clear Creek Baptist College (where Luke went to school) This was my most favorite paid job EVER. I got to meet all the families and share in the stories of how God led them to this amazing place before they ever arrived on campus. I always cried like a baby watching them move in knowing what they’d gone through just to get there. Reminds me of Shelly and her journey to seminary!

Owner- Commercial Janitorial Service – Because really, I just didn’t have enough garbage to clean up at home.

Wife, Mom, and Pastor’s Wife – The most underpaid yet most fulfilling yet. :)

2. Four movies I can watch over and over:

Lord of the Rings One, Two, and Three. (Favorite line? Aragorn in #3 saying to the Hobbits: “You bow to no one…” Kills me every time!

Gone With the Wind (Favorite line: Scarlett – “I’ll just think about that tomorrow”. The story of my life. )

Star Wars One through Six. (I always cry my eyes out when Darth Vader dies now that I know him as Anakin)

And I love watching ‘Rudy‘ with Luke. He cries like a baby every time. I cry watching him cry.

3. Four shows I watch on TV:
This should be ‘Four Shows I WANT to watch on TV’. I’m rarely home but here are the I would if I could:

LOST – It is my all time favorite. I watched 48 episodes on DVD during our vacation….I loved every second!

Bionic Woman – I spent the bulk of my elementary playground days between pretending I was Jamie Somers and Wonder Woman. I have yet to see the new series but I hear it is great…

Heroes – Haven’t watched enough of this to know a good story line but I like shows like this that are a little too fantastic to be real life.

History Channel – Anything and everything related to archaeology, Egypt, or the Early Church. Nerdvision, I know.

4. Four places I have vacationed:

Panama City, St. Simons Island, GA , Daytona Beach, FL, North Topsail Beach, NC

Give me a beach and book, people. I’m not hard to please.

5. Four of my favorite dishes:

Any and all Mexican; Onion Rings at Bullfish Grill in Pigeon Forge TN; Crabcakes at Uncle Ernies in Panama City, FL; High Point Oscar at the High Point Restaurant in Monteagle Mtn., TN.

6.Four places I would rather be: On the beach, shopping at an outlet mall, On a great road trip, At the movies

7. Two bloggers I am tagging (Because I’m not sure of two more who won’t kill me):

Brooke at The Mail Girl
Deb at
Miss Corinthians

Have a great weekend!

5 Questions….

Cyndi at One Day More tagged me for a 5 Question Meme a very long time ago. I am so sorry in being lax in ‘tags’ lately! If you’ve sent me one and I haven’t responded, please forgive me. It has just been an insanely busy summer! Cyndi’s is the first of the ones I know I haven’t played along to, so here goes…

Here are my questions:

1. When is a time you felt especially close to God?
A while back, I was in the church sanctuary all alone on a weekday. The sun was shining through the stained glass in a perfect circle on the altar steps. Immediately I thought, “Take off your shoes. This place is holy ground.” I took off my shoes and laid in the light for quite some time…It was a very tender moment between Him and me.

2. If you could learn another language (easily), what would it be?
Hebrew/Aramaic/Greek to read the original bible manuscripts. Also Spanish so I can talk to my friends at the Mexican restaurant and Egyptian so I could read hieroglyphics and find evidence of the Israelites in ancient Egypt. Did you say one language? :))

3. What house chore is your least favorite and why?
Oh gosh..I truly despise them all but I guess laundry is the most overwhelming….

4. If you could have any animal (tamed) as a pet, what would it be?

A horse…I love them with all my heart..:) And a dog like Lassie that would always help me or the kids if we were in trouble.

5. What’s one thing about your life now that would’ve surprised the “teenager you” to know?

That I would be living in a small town in Alabama and be a pastor’s wife with 4 kids. I’m positive I would have jumped the nearest airplane and flew far, far away to avoid that prophecy…” :)) Aren’t we glad God doesn’t give the big picture when we are too young and stupid to appreciate it??

This was a hoot, Cyndi!! Thanks for sending it my way! I’m not tagging anyone specifically because I think a lot of you are doing this already……If you want to play, grab the questions and let me know to link you! :))
