- One word to describe me is: Not as you guessed... I'd say more like "far-fetched...but-in-a-good-way-if-you-quint-your-eyes-alot". Because that is one word.
- Color of my eyes: My eyes have a brown ring and the rest's hazely-green. Its weird.
- Cruise or mountains: Mountains, I'll say

- Day of the week I was born on: Thursday. Anyone else?
- Favorite color: Purple, just about any shade. I mean, its purple.
- Rain or snow: Either, although snow means I can sleep in so....
- Been out of the country:Once, to Canada.
- Music style:Christian, and mostly a Capella. Just about nothing youve ever heard of... but I'm working to change that ☺
- Do I smoke: Never have, Never will.
- My bed: Queen sized. in case you were wondering, think 7 big ol' pillows, a sleeping bag, 12 throws, 2 comforters, baby blankets... and we do have heating, of course.
- Any Piercings, Tattoos? See, I'd rather not my ears resemble swiss cheese or in short to look like one of those Ripleys people, if you know what I mean. So no.
Tomorrow I'll have another CD review and for now, below just a video of some kittens being absolutely adorable. Because I had kittens on the brain all day yesterday.... some of you actually heard me talking about it. First a educational film on cats, and then thinking of training a cat to use a human toilet (there are videos on it) and then getting a cat, because to train a cat, you need to have one first of course, and lastly camp and the lovely 3 legged kitten that was born there this past summer. (Seen in image and named "Tripod" "Miracle" and "Peg-Leg Joe". Take your pick.
Oh, yeah. Remember those about me questions? Here you go for that:
A week ago, when creating the below poll, I expected a single name to stand out above the rest... of course, what I got was a three way tie ☺ ... so all I'm gonna put out there is this: Dont forget to root for the one you like best- you can put in another entry if you'd like, no problem. On I can pick, that I can do just fine, too- but if I pick, youre stuck with my choice....
But anyway, my message today is something of what Ive re-discovered when reading Genesis, as part of my read-the-bible-within-the-month thing. It goes like this:
We need to be able to trust God, and not just with little, everyday things. In Genesis 22, you see God telling Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac, as a a burnt offering- and even though scripture says that Abraham loved his boy, it also says that he rose early in the morning, not doubting that Isaac would be spared. Also, you can see earlier in Genesis 6, with the flood of the earth, when Noah was told to build the ark- Scholars believe that it took 120 years to construct… and that it may not have ever rained before this global flood, (as also supported by Genesis 2:5-6). When the corrupt people doubted, Noah was able to trust God.
Its pretty immense-
Can we have that trust in God? That faith?
For the big things as well as the small?
Bonus: If you have the time, take a minute and read this cool post I found from Five in Tow, intertwining the story of saving a kittens life with showing forgiveness and an underlying message of hope. I can (for better or worse) say that its probably better than anything that I will ever write.
(link withing the above words "this cool post", to clarify)
Walking up to a department store's fabric counter, a pretty girl asked, "I want to buy this material for a new dress. How much does it cost?"
"Only a kiss a yard," replied the smirking male clerk.
"That's fine," replied the girl. "I'll take ten yards."
With expectation and anticipation written all over his face, the clerk hurriedly measured out and wrapped the cloth, then held it out teasingly.
The girl snapped up the package and pointed to the little old man standing beside her. "Grandpa will pay the bill," she said.

While I have a moment, I have a "life hack" that I wanted to share:
Just recently, on one of those cold, cold days we had earlier this week, I accidentally figured out how to make a shushy with just 3 steps and very little effort:
