THIS: I've been tagged for a new BOOK Meme by Jules at Maced with Grace. I figure if she’s gonna do it…it must not be too bad!
In Jules’ words: If the directions are thoroughly confusing, it helps to read them three times.
If you could write a novel about any subject, what would it be (Just the subject—don’t give away your plot idea.)
If just the thought of having to write anything gives you hives, what would you like to read about in a novel that you’ve never seen done before?
If you hate reading fiction what subject might make you change your mind or try it anyway?
And here are the rules:
1. Answer one of these questions on your blog.
2. Link back to whoever tagged you.
3. Tag 5 women bloggers.
4. Plus, check out previous responses, and if you know of a novel that pertains to the subject someone wishes they could write or would like to read about, suggest the novel to them in a comment.
I chose #1:
If I could write a novel about any subject, what would it be?
Okay this is totally off the top of my head but I would write a novel about Jesus being 33 in 2006 and his life from high school forward. I would have him regularly meet with and talk to God in unusual places.
If you know of a book like this I would LOVE to read it. I’ve read Joshua and I’ve read God on a Harley. Both were awesome reads BTW! If there’s something else I haven’t read (similar to this) let me know!
I just hate tagging people, so I’m going to tag all of you who are up for it. You may even leave your responses in the comments for us to see.
THAT: My MIL (the Volunteer Services Coordinator for this hospital) sent me a link for a “Random Act of Kindness” opportunity that would bless many. If you are interested in sending some stuffed or unstuffed dolls, email me and I’ll send the pattern. It’s in Adobe and since we all know I’m HTML illiterate I’ll just stick to emailing these items.
Here is the info:
Need Random Acts of Kindness for Kids!
Kids need plain muslin dolls. Each doll will be decorated by the sick child with non-toxic markers. The staff uses the medical play doll to explain procedures or to show what posture/body position is needed.
Each becomes a "hospital buddy" and, of course, goes home with their new kid buddy!
Out-of-city/state sewers don't need to stuff the medical play doll. A group of dolls can be sent in a large business envelope and we will them stuff here. Send to:
Presbyterian Vol. Svs.
PO Box 26666
Albuq, NM 87125-6666
Thanks from all of us especially the kids!
AND THE OTHER: Praise Report! Many of you know that I have been praying (along with my husband) about our adopting a child in the near future. I had been hemming and hawing about it…just going back and forth as I weighed pros and cons. I realized I was trying to take it on as some personal challenge so I let it go, literally and just prayed for some Godly wisdom during our joint prayer time some time ago.
Last night I got a phone call from Pastorman’s Wife who is also dear friend of mine.
She said: “You know the new couple that have come to church the last couple of weeks?
I said: “The couple who sat behind us last week?”
“Yes.” She replied. “Guess what she does for a living?”
“Uhm” (…drawing a blank here) I mumbled.
“She’s an attorney who specializes in adoption!” she squealed! Okay, so honestly Pastorman’s Wife does NOT squeal, but I was ready to!
I’m pretty sure God is just putting me at ease about how everything will line up in HIS time. I’m going to pray again not to get ahead of myself, but I am also going to spend some time getting to know this person and shoot some general questions out to gather more information about this unbelievably complex process.
I think that just about covers it all. Have a blessed Tuesday!
