Would you rather?

Be able to fly whenever you want or be invisible?

EASY! - Fly whenever I want. The option to fly to visit my momma and enjoy time visiting with her every day/every week would be amazing!

What would you choose?

There is no one like you!

Yet for us there is one God, the Father, of
whom are all things, and we for Him; and
one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are
all things, and through whom we live.
1 Corinthians 8:6

God, you are my father who gives all good
things. I have life because of you, and there
is no one like you.

I ask that you would deepen that truth in my
heart today. Point out my idols and the things I
worship apart from you, that I would remember
you alone are my God.

Give my friends and loved ones freedom
from their idols as well so they can fully enjoy
being part of your family. Help them know that
you are their only creator and nothing on this
earth has ownership of them.

Thank you for loving us, your creation, even
when we go astray.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

Would you rather?

Be 3 inches taller than you are now or 3 inches shorter than you are now?

MY ANSWER IS TALLER... I have a very tall family and I am the short one. My dad is 6'4 I believe, oldest brother is 6'5 and my middle brother is 6'6. My mom is 5'9 and I am the shortest being 5'5. I get my shortness from my dad's mom who was 4'9 I believe. I don't mind being short, but if I had the option I would choose taller!

What would you rather?

Would you rather?

Skip Christmas for a year or skip your birthday for a year?

This answer is easy. I would rather skip my birthday. Skipping my birthday would only affect me. Skipping Christmas would affect everyone in my family. Our girls still believe in Santa, so to take that away from them and take the magic of Christmas away is just not okay.

And honestly, Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ... How could I take that away?

What would you choose?

Hallowed Be Your Name

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your
name. Your kingdom come. Your will
be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Matthew 6:9–10

Father, you are above all, know all, and see
all. Yet you hear me as if I am your only

May I not view you as a distant father, but as
one who has come to earth and understands the
challenges and temptations of my life. Be near
me today and whisper reminders that you are
close and holding me as your child.

My friends need you today as they make difficult
decisions in their workplaces and within
their families. Would you show them that you
are closer than even their earthly fathers?

Thank you for hearing me and listening to
my pleas.

It’s in Jesus’ name I pray this, amen.

Would you rather?

Have a beach vacation or a mountain vacation?

This one is tough. I love both places so much. I have never actually had a mountain holiday but to think about being in a cabin with a fire going enjoying time inside and then time in the snow it sounds like fun.

However, I feel a beach vacation would be my answer. I have kids and both my kids are summer kids. They would rather be in tank tops and out in the sun than in the snow. The snow is only fun for so long before the cold takes over. I feel my kids would much rather the beach vacation any day!!!

What about you and your family?

Would you rather...

Go to the doctor or the dentist...

I would much rather go to the doctor than the dentist. I get very anxious when I have to go to the dentist office. A doctor's office I am normally pretty calm. So I will say doctor.

What about you?

Director of my Steps

And because you are sons, God has
sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your
hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!”
Galatians 4:6

Abba, thank you for sending a helper to
direct my steps. You know everything and
will guide me in your will.

Help me to know your will. Keep me on the
path you have set for me. Give me the desire to
stay true to that path, and forgive me for the
times I have already strayed from you.

Be with my friends and family who are at
a crossroads and don’t know what to do next.
May your spirit guide them and make the best
decision clear.

Thank you for caring about the details of my
life, for not believing any request is too small.
I pray this in Jesus’ name, amen.

Pet Peeves...

I have a lot of these but I feel like they are not too bad.

I can not stand in any way clicking or tapping constantly... I normally take all of my bosses clicking pens away from him when he has his clicking moments. The clicking of the PEN is the WORST!

Cabinet doors/drawers being open drive me bonkers. I am constantly going around the house closing drawers and doors...

Those tend to be my worst ones... do you have any and what are they?

What would you do if you had insomnia...

What would you do if you had insomnia and had to find something to do to entertain yourself?
Oh my goodness... I can definitely say that if I did have insomnia (and I thank God I do not have it) there are many things I could do to entertain myself. Of course I would have the TV on for noise because a quite house is nice, but if it is all the time I would go insane. I have a new sewing machine so I could definitely learn more about that by watching you tube videos. I do different crafts, like scrapbooking, pen pal writing and all that stuff I could do late at night to pass the time. I also love to make cards so I would spend my time doing that as well as cleaning anytime it needs it. The options are endless. I could work out as well and much more..

What would you do or what do you do if you have insomnia?

Remind me Today!

For you did not receive the spirit
of bondage again to fear, but you
received the Spirit of adoption by
whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”
Romans 8:15

Father, you have made me your child through
your Spirit. In your kindness you adopted
me and delivered me from sin and death.
Remind me today what it means to be your
child and to be free from that law. It is so easy for
me to live my day on my own terms. Help me to
live it in light of your grace.

I pray for my friends and family. Help them
experience your love as their father and feel their
inheritance in your spirit.

Thank you for accepting me as I am but not
leaving me the same.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

Are you an optimistic or pessimistic?

I am an optimistic. I always have been and always will be. I have been through so much throughout my life and if I always looked at the pessimistic side to everything my life would be a very unhappy place. I also want my daughter to know that no matter what happens in life, there is always good things around the corner... so I try to be optimistic about every situation we are faced.

That does not mean that when the tough times come our way I am not stressed/worried, etc. I do have my moments, but all and all I try to make sure that I remember things will be okay and it will eventually be better!

What about you?
