Getting To Know You, Getting To Know All About You...

Sorry, that song's stuck in my head. Now it can be stuck in your head too! :-D Aren't you glad I share?

Since my post revealing all my deep, dark secrets was such a hit, I'm doing another one. Remember to comment about yourself so we can keep up with the whole getting-to-know-each-other thing! It's not much fun if I'm the only one sharing, am I right?

In no particular, totally stream-of-consciousness order...

*My favorite Bible passage is Philippians 4:4-8. Philippians is my all-time favorite book of Scripture. I can reread those four little chapters every day and never learn the same thing twice. Amazing. God is just jumping out of that book for me especially. Love! Oh, what are they? Here you go-

"4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

Powerful stuff, am I right?

*When my voice is recorded, I think I sound like a four-year-old. Which is why I'm totally dragging my feet regarding Kim's vlog challenge. I promise I'll do it. Soon. I really want to. ;-)

*I'm dying to play some Kickball. Doesn't really have anything to do with anything, but I love it and want to play. Who's with me?

*It's Fall here and we have vacation coming up! I'm super stoked. We're actually staycating, but we're planning some fun Autumnal outings, like apple picking and the State Fair. Woohoo!

*God's been revealing some crazy cool things to me lately. Our senior pastor, Chuck, has been ROCKING the sermons God told him to do. Specifically the message from last Sunday, October 02 and the one coming up tomorrow, October 09 (should be posted online Monday). God is moving and you better be ready is all I can say.

*I was sad to hear of Steve Jobs' passing. He seemed like a fun, creative guy who truly loved his family. It saddens me more to know his legacy does not seem to be of a spiritual nature. When I'm gone, I hope my friends and family talk about how much I loved Jesus and how I tried to help others have their own personal relationship with Him.

*My hair is naturally crazy, kinky, curly, and nutso. Drives me bonkers on a daily basis. I've given it all summer to be in its (mostly) natural state. At the end of October I'm going back to the chemicals that straighten my hair in lovely, organized-feeling ways. I am ecstatic and can hardly wait! My hair will still drive me nuts and you might hear me mention that, but I will be happier for having straight hair. Also, it will seem longer once it's straight, and that is making me really happy. Trying to grow hair out is just exhausting! In fact, here's a sneaky peek from Pinterest of what I'm hoping for. Keep in mind I look nothing like this girl, so I'm sure my hair will be totally different, but I can't wait!

*I made Pumpkin Pie Pancakes last weekend. Fanflippin'tastic! I even made extras and froze them for quick breakfasts. Yummy! (Recipe: Make pancake mix according to directions, add 1/3 c. pumpkin pie filling and 1/3 c. pecans (optional). Stir together and make like normal.) So good!

*I can't whistle, wink, or bat my eyelashes. This makes flirting with my hubby really interesting.
