All About Me from A to Z

A is for Age
Chronologically - 41; Mentally and emotionally- about 15 at times. :)

B is for Burger of choice
Personally, I don't like burgers. I'll stick with a grilled chicken sandwich any day.

C is for what Car you drive
Blue Expedition - for carting around my kids, all their stuff, and all their friends.

D is for Dog’s name
Okay, so I do not have a dog, nor cat, goat, horse, hamster, guinea pig or anything else that has 4 legs and is not considered human. I had a fish but he died, and I admit I wasn't that sad. And yes, I am mercilessly harassed daily by my children for this since they are the only kids alive without a pet, or so I have been told.

E is for Essential item you use every day
Sea Breeze Astringent! Who says you can't use the same face cleaner when you are 41 as you did when you were 18 - works for me!

F is for Favorite TV show at the moment
I would have to say What Not To Wear. I am sure that most of the people that get on that show have absolutely no mirrors in their homes and I love to watch the transformation in their bodies and their attitudes. Stacy and Clinton rock!

G is for favorite Game
My son likes to play Monopoly, but since it could take 12 hours to finish, I usually try to opt out of that game. I'm always in for a game of Sorry or some time on the Wii.

H is for Hometown
Although born in North Carolina, I grew up in the small town of Rome, Georgia.

I is for Instruments you play
I love to play the piano, but unfortunately do not have much time to do it these days.

J is for favorite juice
Orange Juice

K is for who you’d like to Kiss
Even after eighteen years, my hubby's lips are the only ones I long for.

L is for Last restaurant you ate at
Hops (you can't beat those little honey butter croissants!)

M is for favorite Muppet
Kermit the frog, of course.

N is for Number of piercings
My ears are pierced, and for some reason I also chose to get second holes in my ears in high school. Pretty pointless now, seeing how I can hardly remember to put on one pair of ear rings each day, much less two.

O is for Overnight hospital stays
Only a few - with the birth of each of my three children

P is for People you were with today
My kids, my husband Michael

Q is for what you do with your quiet time
Work on my computer, actually it is an addiction.

R is for biggest Regret
Poor choices as a teenager, but God has used those experiences to His glory, so that gives me peace.

S is for Status
Married for 18 years , mother of 3 amazingly wonderful kids, ages 8, 11 and 14.

T is for Time you woke up today
6:30am - I can't sleep in no matter how much I would like to.

U is for what you consider Unique
The beach - it is so beautiful, and breathtaking to believe that God created every grain of sand and every drop of water. In fact, nature in itself, is pretty unique.

V is for a vegetable you love
I love veggies - but I guess tomatoes and asparagus would be favorites.

W is for Worst habit
Spending too much time on my computer (you know, because of that addiction thingy)

X is for the number of X-rays you’ve had
Pretty much just one per year - the pancake kind.

Y is for Yummy food you ate recently
Delicious steaks for dinner last night, marinated in Dales Seasoning (yum!), salad and baked potato

Z is for the thing in life that you have the most zest for
Jesus!



Well, that's it about me! If you want to use this on your blog, free free to give it a shot!

I found your blog through the Proverbs 31 devotional and just wanted to tell you I love all of the devotionals! And I spent about 4 years in Rome, Georgia at Berry College :) I loved it!

I love "What Not to Wear" also. It's a tradition that my daughters and I watch it every Friday night.

My mother-in-law sent me your blog and I love reading it! I will definitely use this on my blog. Have a blessed day!

Thank God for women like you!

I am sure God is smiling down on you. In the time you have been a speaker and writer you have seen the impact of your dedication, but I am sure it does not cease to amaze you how far a simple encouraging email can go and all the hearts it can touch. I love to pass along Christ filled, every day life, encouraging emails to my friends, believers or not. I feel it is my duty to encourage my friends specially nonbelievers. Don’t let the enemy lie to you about the “computer addiction” (all though I believe in balance) but because of your “addiction” (if you want to call it that), Your encouraging words have ministered to me and now I’m passing it along to my friends. The Lord works everything for the good……..
God Bless you,

About D is for Dog’s name....

Consider a turtle. My children would like to bring home almost every animal known to mankind with the support of my husband, but I had always elected to over rule their requests until four years ago.

We decided that if we were going to get a pet, we would search for a low maintenance animal. Our four-legged animal is a turtle named Gloria. She's wonderful. She lives in a 3X6 area in the back yard. She hibernates underground from about Nov-Apr (during cold months).

She knows her name and recognizes our voices (associated with bringing her food).

No one has to watch her when we go on vacation, etc... and turtles live for decades. :)

Tracie,
I want to tell you how wonderful you write for Christian women. Could I say one negative thing and ask that you not take it too personal but give it some prayer? I feel like Zodiac signs and horoscopes are associated with things that the Lord doesn't approve of. If you pray about it and find that you are at peace using that on your blog, then I will accept that. Otherwise, maybe you could use something else for "Z", like favorite ZOO, Zealous for "____", ok? Praying as I write this, in Jesus Name!

Anneim - I cannot thank you enough for bringing this to my attention! When I started reading your post today, I thought 'what is she talking about?' I had copied and pasted that little exercise from another blog somewhere, and just answered the questions, without thinking about that, and had forgotten all about it. Apparently I completely overlooked that correlation when I wrote it over 2 yrs ago, however, I am strongly against anything to do with horoscopes, and even wrote a blog post and a recent devotion about that subject just this year! So thanks for being so sweet in bringing it to my attention. I have already fixed it!
