I signed up to join this years session of the Blogger Friend School at Training Hearts. Every week we will have an assignment to post to our blog. This week being the first week is a get to know you time. Here is my assignment-
Why I blog- I have only been blogging since the beginning of June of this year. The reason why I have a blog is to help keep my sanity! I wanted someplace I could go to record my thoughts and be like a sanctuary so to speak. If you want to read my first post, it explains things better.
My dream place to blog- I think the best place I could be to blog would be somewhere quiet and secluded, away from interruptions. Of course then I wouldn't have anything to write about, would I? I have heard of people who take a once a year hiatus to spend time with God, journal and reflect. That would be a wonderful thing. Someplace out around nature- either by the ocean or near an incredible garden with a waterfall.
When I blog- I usually manage to spend time blogging in the evenings after the kids go to bed. However even that is not too easy as the baby likes to stay up till at least 11pm and by that point I am ready for bed myself. Sometimes I start a post earlier in the day and type a little every so often till I finish it up. Whenever I can find the time!
My favorite drink- I usually drink water only as I have a hard time trying to get in all the water I need but when I do have something else I like Silk brand coffee flavored soy milk. Any coffee type stuff I drink must have more 'cream' and sugar then coffee.
My favorite book- I read a lot of books- well as much as I can -but to say I have a favorite would be hard. Of course that doesn't include the Bible! I guess the favorite out of the last few months would be the books Eragon and Eldest (the first two of a trilogy).
My favorite dessert- Does this include things I can currently eat or if I was dreaming? I love very dark (85% cocoa) chocolate but haven't had any chocolate in over 1 1/2 years. I also really like cheesecake but recently discovered I am lactose intolerant. So, lately I have resorted to making peanut butter squares without the chocolate (its like eatting the inside of a Reese's cup).
My favorite inspiring scripture for my life- To limit it down to one verse would be hard as there are just so many of them that speak to me-each one at a different time. However, one I have been mulling over and thinking on a lot lately is- Romans 5:3-5
3Not only so, but we[a] also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
