***First I want to admit to the world- I had no idea that is what it is even called! :) Whew....now I do THANKS Debi!!!
Loin...he he he....oh yea- tenderloin! :) Haven't had one in a long time, but I guess I am blogging while hungry ;)
2. What is the most important virtue you possess?
Compassion. Let me tell you this is something that GOD grew in me. Not something I just had. Trust me, but I am sooo glad HE has grown this in me.
Here In This Moment by Bekah Shae although.......I have to say I LOVE MUSIC so pretty much I have a million favorites!!
4. If you had to choose someone from the Bible that most closely represents you, who would it be?
Some days Mary some days Martha. Now if I could get it to equal out that would be GREAT!
Hebrews 12:1 is my favorite verse...."Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things unseen" This verse used to be on a refrigerator magnet growing up and it always pops in my mind when I am really going off the edge. It reminds me that God has everything planned for me and will get me through it- even when I feel it is all falling apart. HE KNOWS THE UNSEEN!!!
6. What is your favorite recipe?
Chocolate Crinkles- YUMMY!!!!!
4 unsweetened baking chocolate squares
1/2 cup veg oil
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup powdered sugar
Melt chocolate squares. Mix chocolate, oil, and sugar. Blend in eggs one at a time until well mixed. Add vanilla. Stir in flour, salt, and baking powder into mixture.
Chill several hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
Shape dough into balls and roll in the powdered sugar.
Bake in oven at 350 for 10-12 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE :) (Should still be a bit like gooey brownies)
Cool on a wire rack. EAT THEM ALL- Or in our case make a double batch so you have enough to go around at least twice!
7. Most dramatic childhood memory.
When I was 8 years old I had cancer. It ripped my family's world apart!!! It has shaped a lot of things in my life. READ HERE.
8. (for a school throw-back question) If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?
Oh dear? An Oak. Just because I like them. They are big trees and strong, and kids love to climb on them!
Easy take off all the pounds I have gained with moving and our last adoption. I am totally an emotional eater :( yikes!
10. Coffee? Iced, frozen, hot or not?
NOT- I don't do coffee of any kind. Sorry. MT DEW- is my poison. Yes, I know.....
11. A moment in time that changed your life?
When I was 4 my parents took our family to hear an evangelist. I saw him speak and just thought- he really really loves and is sooo excited about God. I knew then I HAD TO HAVE HIM! I accepted Christ and have been clinging to HIM ever since that moment!!! THANK THE LORD!!! AND NOW I KNOW WHY HE WAS SOOO EXCITED ABOUT GOD!!! Thankful every day that I belong to HIM. Oh and if it weren't for that moment.....I have NO idea how I would have survived the most dramatic childhood memory!
