Versatile Blogger Award errrr..something like that


Well, one of my fellow blog friends nominated me for Versatile Blogger Award. I feel very honored by her that she would pick me as one of the blogs to participate. I enjoy reading Mrs. Robbins blog and all the happenings in her big family. To me it is big since we only have one. She is honest, sincere and always standing in her children's corner supporting them. If you have a chance go read her blog. I think you will be encouraged by the journey she has travelled and continues to tread upon.

Okay, I am supposed to give 7 random facts about me. Do you hear the laughter coming through this screen to you? No? Well, it is loud on my side. I don't know if I have 7 but I will try. Here goes nothing.

Fuzzy socks- I collect them!  I am that girl at Target whenever a Holiday or seasons changes because I know they will have a wall f fuzzy socks just for me! Okay, maybe not a wall more like a rack. I do have one rule about buying a new pair. I must get rid of the old pair before buying a new set. This is not hard to do since I wear them all year round and they get worn. 

Children-LOVE them! Not just mine but yours! I was always that friend babysitting or taking an extra pair of little hands in my home. Sometimes I believe I am more comfortable with kiddos than adults. I do believe my job in Heaven will be with children or rocking babies and my mom will be right beside me.

Organization-Oh to be but not. I love organized people. I am organized in some areas of my life but others not so much. I long for my home to be that place where everything is filed, put away, all items to have a place in my house, everyone can find anything in less than 5 minutes and maybe have a few of those oh so cute colored containers. Someday......

Scrap booking-LOVE it but no time.  Once upon a time in a land far far away lived a girl who loved to scrapbook her memories. If I were in a story I think that is how my chapter would start for this subject matter. Sadly, it has taken a back burner due to other priorities. It is okay for now but I will get my groove back into memory making! I love it for so many reasons. I get to be creative, tell a story and see memories stored on beautiful paper in books. It just takes time that I cannot give to it right now. Soon very soon.

Women Revealed-strong passion of mine! It is a ministry for women to release their burdens. It is beyond anything I have ever done or been a part of. I have participated in Level 1 & 2(WOW). My place in this passion for now is to continue to staff and grow in my walk with the Lord. Click here to learn more.

Boxing-"momma gonna knock you out!" This has been an addiction(good one) of mine for a couple of months now. If you have ever boxed you know what I mean! It energizes me, thrills me and challenges me! I thank my bf for getting me hooked! ;0)

Old stuff-turning to new. I love to take an old piece of furniture and make it new again or repurpose it. This is not hard to do since I only have to walk a few feet in my own home to find a piece that meets that criteria. hahaha! There is a lot of Biblical parallels for me in that. Jesus can take anything and transform it into beauty!  It brings a smile to my face to know that HE was a carpenter. Pretty neat.

Now, I am supposed to nominate blogs I read. These are just a few of the ones I read. I love to them for different reasons. Honesty, inspiration, true to themselves and they make me laugh! Here they are....

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
