Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?
Yes, I have rocks that are not jewelry-related, that are not pet rocks either. I try to remember to get a rock from any new town that we visit. For now, they are kept in a zippy bag in my “special stuff” box.
What is your greatest strength or weakness?
I am completely insecure, no self-confidence. That would be my greatest weakness. My greatest strength would be that I also know that my worth is not ultimately determined by the faulty humans on this planet, but by the One Who created me. He declared my value, my worth, when He sent His Son to die for my sins. Me, the human that other humans see as nothing, as worthless, He determined to be worth His Son’s life, and His Son backed up that thought by being willing to take my faults on Himself and to die for me. Who would die, or sacrifice their Son, for someone of no value? I’ve got a God-said on this one. I need to leave the human-said out of it. Doing that will correct my greatest weakness.
I also get a lot of strength from my relationship with David. Regardless of problems that we may have had along the way, love remains and I can’t imagine making this journey with anyone else.
What makes you feel grounded?
My daddy and mama did on occasion, but I know that isn’t what you meant. 🙂
Knowing that Heavenly Father is there for me, even those times that I feel utterly alone, helps me to feel grounded. I know that no matter what happens, He has my back. No matter how lonely I feel, I am never truly alone. He’s already won this one!
Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?
That is a difficult question! I think I would be able to give up cold food easier than hot food. Ice cream and cocktail shrimp and cheesecake are generally cold. But, a warm cheesecake might be good and I can eat fried shrimp, so that works. I don’t know how to overcome the ice cream bit, though. Overall, I prefer my food to be hot.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am very thankful for another stroke-free week. I am looking forward to another one. I am also looking forward to finding more interesting stories about our long ago family members. I have found some very interesting ones over the last few days thanks to Newspapers.com!
