Random stuff

I've been blogging now publicly since September 11, 2006, every day, sometimes more than once a day.  That's a lot of posts!.  There are some posts that are my favorites that will not be ready by most people simply because are they tucked away among this huge body of writing.  I will often go back and read a few just to see where God has brought me from.  Sometimes I laugh, other times cry, and every now and again I'll wonder, "what was I thinking to publicly write that?!" Like the time I blogged about Larry and I starting a  fire (literally) in a hotel room in Miami a few years ago when we were in the middle of...well, you know.  Or the time I told a lady in the church that I was going to break her legs if she didn't stay away from my husband.  Yeah, for real.  You'll have to go back in the archives to find those!  LOL

I can't count the number of times as a pastor/pastor's wife people have said to me, "I want to get to know you better."  Although I love meeting in person, a great place to get to know someone is through their writing.  Throughout the past four years I've written occasional meme's as they are called in blog world.     I love meme's!  Not only writing them, but reading about others.  Today I thought I'd list some of my favorite memes of things you might or might not want to know about me.

Deanna,
Your fire comment reminded me of a friend, Lisa, who shared a story with me years ago. One Valentine's evening they lit candles on the night stands. While......the lamp shades (both of them) caught on fire! Everyone was ok but near Valentine's Day. someone always reminds her what not to do! LOL :)
