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! :))
I would love to join the Bible study. Can anyone join at anytime or wait until the next one begins?
I could see the rest of the study on this page. Is this something my computer is doing?
OH! i’d love to have that kind of experience in a sanctuary — powerful stuff.
and …. i see you’re still chompin’ at the bit to get to the bottom of this Egypt stuff! LOL.
you go girl!
Love your posts and yes one language but I am like you -there are just too many good ones!!
A small city in Alabama – which one?
You can e-mail me so it is not all over the internet world :)
I know what you mean about the housework, dear…and may I just say that Laundry is my nemesis!!
I am a week behind on I AM due to getting ready for my trip this week, and I will be gone until Saturday, but I will get caught up when I return.
Thanks again for this awesome study!! And for sharing your heart with us in your blog!!
Have a great week!!
I’ve stopped by before to visit and it’s always such a blessing! Enjoyed this so much.
Oh, I just LOVED your “close to God” moment in the sanctuary. It gave me chills to read it! Thank you so much for sharing that. And I’m right there with ya in the laundry department. Man.
Thanks so much for answering these. It was so fun to read! :)
