    Well in Googling to find out I am told it means: Lively
  3. What inspires you?
    The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost
  4. What is your funniest memory/experience that you can recall of?
    well the one that comes to mind first was when one of my college professors and I were flirting back and forth very openly in class, but I was lucky to be in the back of the room behind everyone. One of the guys in the class was so convinced the professor was flirting with him that we could not convince him that the professor was married with kids and very straight.. He kept saying, “I knew you girls would think because he has kids he can’t be gay, but if you could have seen the way he was flirting with me… the things he was doing…  he had no shame in making it clear right there in class how much he wanted me.” LOL! Me and the girls who later knew laughed so hard.
  5. What is your favourite quote from a film?
    Ernest Borgnine as the Centurion in Jesus of Nazareth, “No! I am unworthy that you should enter under my roof. I know that if you say the word, my servant will be healed. I am a man under authority, but I, myself, have authority over a hundred soldiers, and if I say to one of them ‘Do this.’ I know that he will do it. And if I say to another, ‘Go there.’ I know that he will go. I need not see. I know. So it is enough that you give the word, and it will be done.”
    (This references the story of the faith of the Centurion in Luke 7:1-10, with verses 6-8 being the actual words the Centurion spoke.)  ❤
  6. What gift or talent do you wish you had?
    singing for the Lord

  10. What is the most valuable lesson you have learned recently?
    We never know what God has planned in our lives to make us who we are, to save us from our troubles, to save us from ourselves, and to change our lives for the better. God can rescue us in ways that the world would never allow.
  11. What made you want to start blogging?
    Having a private place to go and talk with God originally. He would later lead me to trust Him by going public while doing a challenge for a friend.

5 Questions from Tasha for me:

which led me to doing the…

4) What is your favourite hobby/pass time?
Spending alone with God! ❤

5) What’s the best/worst practical joke that you’ve played on someone or that was played on you?
My family use to do practical jokes of scaring one another as a past time.
The stronger the fear the better. Hysterics were the goal.
Later when I was a part of a local young adult community organization of adults from ages 21 to 39, when we did the famous annual haunted house, for at least 2 months fear was the favorite joke. Again hysterics were the goal.
As a result, fear is a huge part of my anxiety when there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of. It would be God teaching me to reverently fear Him, and learn in His Holy Word that He did not want me in hysterics, to teach me to face my fears. I may not be able to prevent sudden fear from arising, but I can turn to Him for how I face it.

“Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.”
– Proverbs 3:25 KJV
