Hootin' Anni has asked for volunteers to be interviewed by none other than Anni herself. Since Anni is so much fun, I couldn't resist volunteering. She sent me the questions in an email and this is what I have to do.
Now for my questions sent to me by Hootin Anni ............
1] Your town is going to collect items from those who reside there, and asked you to participate. The items will go in a time capsule not to be opened for 200 years. What would you donate and why?
I have a Dake bible that I have had many years now. I bought it right after being born again. It is old and worn out and its pages are marked with yellow and green and blue. In the margins are notes scribbled with pen and pencil and you cannot find one "clean" page in it's entirety. When we were pastors of a church in the late 80's I wrote the day and time that each person in our congregation was born again, and then the date that we baptized them.
It contains scraps of paper with scriptures and notes and pressed flowers and a few pictures of the members and the pictures of the days we filled the church with laughter....... Some of those people have gone on to meet the Lord and with some I have lost touch, but within the pages of that bible is the history of many lives and the history of the years of growth in the Lord for me. Within those pages is the words of my Father God to instruct us how to live without fear......... I am afraid that the coming generations will move further from the word that will save them and keep them safe and in 200 years, who can say.......... I want that generation 200 years from now that 200 years before them there were people of God , full of grace and passion. People that believed what the book said from cover to cover. Christians, believers in Jesus Christ....
2] Envision the color red and describe what you see at this very moment, as objects you love, with the color red in/on them.
When I look out my back patio door, I see many a pair of red Cardinals. I make sure that have plenty of the things that they love to eat. They bring me joy just to sit and watch as the move from feeder to feeder. They are especially beautiful when there is snow and ice on the ground. Then there is the Climbing Don Juan Rose bush that is silently moving up the back of the house between my bathroom window and my bedroom window. They are absolutely beautiful in the summer time with their deep burgundy red blooms on long stems...... I clip them and have several vases around the house to display them for may hours of enjoyment.
I also have a red dress jacket with a little white hankie just peeking out of the pocket.. I love wearing it with my black dress slacks when I want to look sexy! I will be sad when it is worn out.. or too big...........(yeah)
3] If you were going to be interviewed, literally, by a celebrity....who would you like to meet/have interview you?
President George W Bush..... I want to see that man face to face. I want to meet the man that had the faith and conviction of what he believed in to do that which was necessary in the face of great disdain. He kept us safe from harm and he was treated as a devil. He was hated for what he believed in. He kept the unborn safe, he gave us a since of security that as for me now I have lost. Yeap. He is a celebrity in my eyes and he is a faithful obedient child in the eyes of the Father God.
4] Fashions and fads come and go....in your lifetime, did you ever wear something that was en vogue, and wouldn't now, that you're at your age you are? If you did, what was it...why did you like it?
Oh yeah baby! I wore micro mini skirts with halter tops.. I had black chokers with cameos. I had Afro hair. I had bell bottom pants that were at least 18' across. I wore hip huggers with chain belts and suede vests with tassels to my knees........... Oh yeah baby! Why did I like it? OMG........ I was as wild as a MARCH HARE, and everyone else was wearing the same!
NO I would not wear today.......... my son would arrest me and lock me up !
5] Do you have any phobias? If you do, list them and try and tell me WHY you've come to fear these things. If not, then, what makes you fearless?
The only thing that I fear is heights. Cannot go up into the mountains and especially cannot go up if the road is on the side of the mountain. Cannot look down. It is a fear that paralyzes me and the reason being as I had a bad encounter in Germany with a very very tall mountain. I was on a very large bus and the bus went around corners that were not wide enough for all 4 wheels. It moaned and groaned up that mountain and by the time we were half way up I was on the floor board..... I swore when I got to the top that I would not get back on that bus............. When it was time to leave, I found the walking path and walked down that mountain. Four hours later we arrived at the plateau where we had left the car. My friends and my husband did not speak to me the rest of the day and night......Cannot say I blame them........ It left me with a terrible fear of heights... I see no need in trying to overcome it now! hahahah
Now that was fun !!!!!!!!!!
