Lady Sunshine’s questions for me :

1. What are your nicknames? What do you prefer to be called?

I’ve had several nicknames throughout my life.  One was Mel, when I was going thru my rebellious, “I hate my name” stage.  Then in 8th grade, I named myself Mindy.  Now of course, I’m “Purple Slob”.

2. What books on your shelf are begging to be read?

My Bible.  I try to always read it every day.  I say try.  And, I have a book, “Season of Angels” , Debbie Macomber that I’m wanting to read.

3.What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep? Toss and Turn? Try to get up and do something productive?

Sometimes I get up and read, or get on FB.  Sometimes I eat!  Bad me, bad me!

⁴. How many days could you last in solitary confinement? How would you do it?

I think I could last awhile, if I had books, and paper and pen.  Maybe some crayons, and coloring book.   But, they are gonna feed me, right???
5. When making an entrance in to a party, do you make your presence known? Do you slip in and look for someone you know? Do you sneak in quietly and find a safe spot to roost?

 Oh, I definitely make my presence known!  I am a big time par-tay girl!  Love to be the center of attention!!
6. What is your strongest sense? If you had to give one up, which would it be?

 I think seeing would be my strongest, even though I need glasses now! lol  Hmmmm, if I had to give one up??

     I guess I’d choose smelling to let go of.  I would never want to be blind, or deaf, or unable to feel.

Now, I get to ask the questions.  Sunshine gave me such thought provoking ones, I need to dig deep to come up with some great ones, too!

My questions for y’all:

  1. Boxers or briefs?  Not really, I just couldn’t resist.  DO NOT ANSWER THIS!!

Quoting Quietly in a Quorum

This is Day # 3, of my Quotes Challenge, given to me by Smiling Notes.  Thanks again, Smiling!

If you missed them, here’s Day One.  And this is Day # 2.

“Who can find a virtuous wife?  For her worth is far above rubies.”  I’m quoting the Holy Bible, book of Proverbs, chapter 31, verse 10.

4 of 6

The Bible has a lot to say to wives, about how to be an excellent one.  I could have done a lot better in my life if I had always followed the Biblical teachings, instead of rebelling, and wanting to do my own thing.  Better late, than never, I guess.  Thank God for His forgiveness, through Jesus’ blood, and His death on the cross.  No matter what sins I’ve committed, Jesus forgives them, when I ask in prayer. BUT!!!  I have to quit sinning!!  I can’t just ask for forgiveness, then go back to whatever I was doing before.  I have to make a change in my heart, my life, my attitude, and my actions.

If I want to be an excellent wife, I have to follow God’s instructions.  He made us, He knows best for us.

The Rules of this Challenge are:

– Post 1 quote a day for 3 days (can be your own or from other sources)

– Nominate 3 bloggers to participate per post & thank the person who nominated you

My Nominations are:

1.  Dream Big

2.  Sharon

3.  Kelli

This concludes this challenge.  What will be quietly quoted, in a quorum next?
