Sunflower Award

Sunday, May 11, 2014

Many thanks to Cryslyn of Cryslyn's Blog for nominating me for the Sunflower Award.  The Sunflower Award is another way for bloggers to learn more about each other by asking 11 questions.  Here are my answers to Cryslyn's questions: 

1). How did you become a Christian?
My parents read me Bible stories and told me about Jesus throughout my childhood. I was taught to read from the Gospel of John. However, having a Christian family did not make me a Christian. I was a sinner with attitude and temper problems. I wasn't convinced of the existence of God until I met Jesus when I was 11 years old. His presence was and still is unbelievably sweet, and I praise the Lord that I can confidently say I am a child of God.

2). If you could play any instrument of your choice, what would it be?
I play the guitar, piano, accordion, and harmonica. Of those I would choose the piano to play a solo and the guitar for a jam session.

3). How many siblings do you have?
Three: two sisters and a brother.

4). If you could be stranded in any of your favorite novels, which would it be and why?
I don't read many novels, so I don't have a favorite. The last one I read (in part) was George Orwell's 1984. And I don't want to be in that one... The scary part is it seems to be coming true.

5). What is your favorite Disney movie?
The Absent-Minded Professor

6). What is your dream occupation?
Travel writer (who actually gets paid!).

7). Do you have any pets? If so, what are they?
We have a dog (Ginger), a house cat (Princess), two outdoor cats (Skippy and Blackie), and 30+ chickens.

8). What scripture from the Bible is most encouraging to you?
Psalms 23 and 91, Hebrews 10:35-39, and Ephesians 6:10-11. “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

9). Have you ever traveled out of the country you live in?

10). Favorite color?
Usually blue, but there are seasonal variations in my favorites.

11). What is your favorite song at present?
The Holy City, I Know Who Holds Tomorrow, and One Day at a Time.
