Everybody has a real neat blog!!       So, everybody gets an award!!          Seriously, you want it, you got it!       How did Heather get people to nominate themselves??    I’ll have to go back, and take a look!!

 

These are the 7 questions from Elizabeth, for her nominees:

  1. Is there something that you do that makes you really happy when you’re feeling down?

Singing!!     I might cry, but it always lifts my spirit, to sing praises to the Lord!

  1. Is there someone (real or fictional) who inspires you? Who is it and why does this person inspire you?

My friend, Jan S.     She has a real bad bone disease, and breaks bones just by sneezing, sometimes.     She’s always in pain.     But she is the most loving, happy, always cheerful person you will ever meet!     You can just see the joy of the Lord in her face!

  1. Do you spend a lot of time listening to, reading, or watching the news?

Nope!!      I try to avoid it as much as possible!   I have enough depression tendencies, just by myself!!      I do read the missing kids alerts, on FB.  I forward them, and pray the child will be found alive, and unharmed.

  1. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
slob, humor, night owl

Night owl.

This is a funny question!     In my childhood, all the way up till I went back to teaching, in my 40’s, I was always a night owl!     Now, I want to be asleep with the chickens, otherwise known as grandbabies!!

  1. Do you have any pets? What kind and what are their names?

No, thank goodness.      The only pet I ever had as mine, was Emily.    

I’ve never loved another animal, either before, or since.

  1. Do you talk to yourself out loud?

Yes, of course!!     Doesn’t everyone need expert advice, now and again??

     7. Is Jesus your savior?

Yes!!   And I’m so excited to see this question, Elizabeth!!      Thank you!!      It is THE single most important question in all of existence!       Having Jesus as your Savior is the difference between eternity with God, in heaven, or spending eternity in hell, if He is not your Savior.

Okay, now the hard part:

Nominate people.      

Oh please, just nominate yourselves!!      And if you do, I’ll come back, and fill in your name, so your nomination will be all official, and stuff!!     Okay?  I hate playing favorites, and having to pick people for my team!!     Or worse, feeling like someone chose me last!      (Oh wait!     This part isn’t about me!      Sorry!     Can you tell I wasn’t too enthusiastic about elementary school team sports??)

I really like Elizabeth’s questions, so I’m copying them!        (Just remember Elizabeth, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!!)

God’s Gift

My friend, Elizabeth, from the Comfortable Coop, also wrote a wonderful Resurrection Sunday post, just like Cami’s, that I re-blogged yesterday.

It reminded me once again, to give first place to Jesus, my Savior, always!!       Resurrection Sunday, (Easter), is to celebrate His resurrection from the dead!!   He gave His life on the cross, for our salvation, just because He loves us!!      Praise the Lord forever!

God’s not dead, He is alive!!

Omie ‘Omage

Number 1 thing in my life, is my love for, and my relationship with Jesus Christ, my Savior. So, actually, number 1 is not a thing, He’s a person!

Being an Omie (my grandmother name) is the 2nd greatest thing in my life!   So, actually #2 is not a thing either, it’s 2 people!  Tied for second place in my heart!

Being a wife was #2, until my girls were born!    Then, they were #2, until PP was born!!

Today, I’m paying ‘omage to being an Omie.

I just never could have imagined how becoming an Omie would affect my life.   Becoming a mother, profoundly changed my life.   Becoming an Omie, changed it again, by a thousand!!

I always heard people say that being a grandparent was so much better than being a parent. It’s hard to believe, because being a parent is so wonderously incredible!    But, seeing that grand baby’s face, for the first time- unimaginable joy!!    Times a million!!!     Then, to have that joy doubled, by a second grand daughter, just makes my heart full to bursting!

The stress is less, because I know I’m not completely responsible for them!   {One reason parenthood is so terrifying!!}    But, all the joy is doubled, because the child of my body, now has children of her body!!    Just so amazingly loving!!

I look at those sweet little faces, and all I want to do is stare at them so hard, they’re imprinted on my eyeballs, just like they are imprinted on my heart!!

slob, humor, heart

LOVE!

 

slob, humor, heart

LOVE!

And kiss them and hug them till they know they are so precious, and loved!!  (Or, until I’m satiated, whichever comes first.   Hint, it’s not me being satiated!!)

 

I feel like I can do anything in the world, be anything for them.    (Even when my body says “Oh no, you cain’t!!   My mind still thinks, “Oh yes, I can!!”)

If you have grandchildren, I ain’t tellin ya nuttin you don’t already know!   For the rest of ya, just wait.   When it’s your turn, then you’ll know too!!
