Things I thought you might want to know, and even if you don’t, here they are…
I don’t pass up a challenge, so here goes Judy Patooty… sherri’s list
I ‘go’ because: life is short and there are always flowers to plant, books to write and a smile to give away.
I ‘love’ because: God loves me. I figure I owe Him big time.
I ‘laugh’ because: it is healthy and it feels good and Clara just makes the funniest faces.
I ’smile’ because: of the joy I have from knowing my father is King.
I ’sing’ because:it annoys everyone around me and it is healthy (not to annoy others – to sing).
I ‘write’ because: I can’t stop.
Three things I ‘pray’ for: that my children would come to know that God is faithful to a T and will never forsake them, even in their darkest hour (that’s when it gets good); that Clara (and any other grandchildren I will have) will be protected always and learn how much her heavenly Father loves her and that when I face my Father, He will say “Well done”.
If I could have my dream job: I’d teach kids on a farm and write a book about our adventures.
I ‘wanna be like’ this one person in my world: I don’t think I ‘wanna be like’ just one person, but some of each, as they’re all my heroes: my mom, Ken’s mom, Laura, Vivian, Gale, my grandmother, my pastor, Miss Neva, Marilyn, and my dog (the mutt was just so unconditionally forgiving).
I ‘want to be remembered for’: being like Jesus and bringing hope to those who feel hopeless – or at least a smile.
Why I do the goofy things I do: because I like to make people laugh. We are made in God’s image, so I guess I like to think that every once in a while, God gets goofy, too! Besides, it’s better than being down. PD does that to you enough, you know.
One thing I’m glad I’ve learned: God has a sense of humor as well as a soft shoulder.
What I hope my child(ren) learn(s) from me: unconditional love, laughter, forgiveness, patience, kindness, a peaceful spirit, the importance of a promise, honesty, confidence, responsibility, and how to be crazy. I HOPE that is what they learn from me. I HOPE that is what they see.
