know & tell friday! ** updated **

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Question 1
1. Do you read or study best in silence or in a place with background noise? Why? Either way. I can read with or without noise!

2. If you were to write a book about your life, what would it be called? “drowning in faith” It would be more about the last four years, but these past years have been full of growing pains!

3. (This question is a deep one…I know it should be a bonus, but I already have a few bonus questions chosen for this week) Why do you think divorce is so prevalent? We are all conditioned to be self absorbed. That along with so many damaged people who damage other people and are too hard to live with… lack of commitment, ease of divorce… I believe marriage vows are til death do you part, unless there is abuse or unfaithfulness.   **having said that… if someone has had a divorce, is getting a divorce, or wants a divorce… it is none of my business and i am and will never claim to be the judge in those circumstances which i can not begin to know or understand.**

4. What’s the best way to resist peer pressure? To put God first and know that the world is ruled by Satan, not by God… which makes the world so much less desirable!

5. What is the most serious illness or injury you ever faced? I had surgery on my bladder when I was five. I went home and jumped up and down rupturing stitches, and bled. A lot. I haven’t had any real serious illnesses otherwise.

Bonus Questions
6. When was the last time you felt like you had a laugh with God? Not lately. My conversations are pretty serious with God these days. Hopefully I’ll lighten up soon 🙂

7. This question was inspired by a friend. My friend went through a very tragic experience, and I so wanted to comfort her, but did not have the words too (GP, right or wrong usage of the too?). I had a conversation with her at a later date and asked her what do you say to someone when they are going through a tragedy, because I know that people say the wrong things even when there intentions were good. So, here is my question…. What do you say to someone who is going through a tragic or hard time? I don’t think the words are important. I think just being available through the tragedy and after the tragedy. Being available to help with anything and loving you even when you are not very lovable.

baby clothes

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

I just love baby clothes. They are so cute and so much fun to buy!  I remember how much fun it was to find the perfect outfit to bring each baby home from the hospital.  I remember each outfit specifically!  Amanda almost came home in a boy outfit because we thought she was a boy, but luckily my aunt margie bought her a little smocked dress and I took it to the hospital just in case.  I had a lot of shopping to do once I came home from the hospital, pink was needed!  Bailey wore a little peter rabbit soft suit, he was so sweet in it!  Emelia wore a little pink outfit that was soft and pretty with a white collar.   She had the most hair I have ever seen on a baby and wore a little barrette home!   Isabelle wore a little pink outfit home too! She was so cute and such a good baby!

high risk insurance

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

You may need high risk life insurance if you participate in hazardous activities or your job is dangerous (like scuba diving, rock climbing, car racing, pilots, etc), or if you have a health condition that is hard to insure (like cancer, diabetes, or heart disease). Those two circumstances means you are a higher risk for life insurance companies to insure. Because you are at a higher risk, your term life insurance will cost more unless you are able to get it from a wholesale insurance company that specializes in high risk and impaired risk situations.

pet supplies

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Whether it’s dog food, doggie treats, or a new carrier for your pet, pet supplies are something we all buy on a daily basis. We just bought new doghouses for our big dogs. I’m not sure they have actually gone into these new houses yet, but they are there if they need them! I keep doggy treats for the puppy. He prefers treats from the kids (from their food), but he’ll learn to love the bacon strips. Matt’s sister’s dogs loved them and were my instant friends when they realized I had treats for them!
