I Did My Homework!

After visiting Training Hearts tonight, I decided I would participate in the Blogger Friend School. I love getting to know other bloggers and felt this would be a great way to do so. For today's assignment, we are to list words in ABC order,that describe ourselves or list things that are important to us. We were also instructed to include a Bible verse which we have been dwelling on this week. So her goes!

A - achy
B - Bible
C - Christian
D - devoted
E - expressive
F - Fox News
G - giggly
H - hungry
I - indecisive
J - Jesus
K - kisser
L - loving
M - Mother
N - nutty
O - obstinate
P - prayerful
Q - quirky
R - reading
S -sons
T - teacher
U - uplifting
V - violets
W - worrier
X - x-rays
Y - yawning
Z - zealous

A scripture I've been dwelling on this past week:

Isaiah 26:3 "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee."

Good verse! One that we should all remember when our stress starts to overwhelm us! Thanks!

This was a good exercise and I enjoyed it.

One question though: How do worrier and indecisive fit with your wonderful choice of verse?

Hi Pam,
sarah sent this to me…… Word has it that Blogger is losing people's post so you need to backup everything you don't want to lose.
You might want to back up your blog.
