Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Tagged Seven Questions

Heart Choices

Debbie at Heart Choices has tagged me to answer Seven Questions!
  1. If you could travel anywhere with no thought to cost, where would you choose to go?  Easy I would go to the Mediterranean.  I have taught Ant. Civilization to my children for years and I would love to see where it all happened.  Greece, Italy, Israel, etc.
  2. What song would you choose for someone to sing at your funeral?  At this time it would be "I Can Only Imagine", but I would like for it to be danced also. I would love a concert of praise! 
  3. If you could spend a day with anyone (dead or alive) who would you choose?  At this point in time it would be my grandmother.  She had five children, four boys and a girl.  She lived through so many trials and stayed strong to her faith.  I would just love to have time with just her and talk.
  4. What do you want people to remember you by?  That I loved my God, my family, and I encouraged others through word and deed.
  5. Are you an early morning person or night owl?  EARLY Morning....you will find me going brain dead after 9:00 pm...I am totally useless in the evening, but enjoy the beginning of the day
  6. What is your favorite meal to prepare?  I love being creative in the kitchen, so getting to cook a new recipe is always my favorite. I tend to enjoy variety and get bored when I have to repeat a dish....so a favorite would be the newest meal I cooked. Now I do love making cheesecake!
  7. What would a perfect day be like to you?  Since I would say perfect has no boundaries it would start with my whole family on a beautiful beach.(of course that means I would look good in a bathing suit, even being in one would be a perfect day)  After playing all day with my family I would enjoy attending a live musical with my husband.  Enjoying family, nature, the arts and special time with my husband would be a perfect day!
Now I was tagged twice...how much fun.   Sandy from Faith, Hope and Love also gave me a list of questions.
Here are answers from her tagging.

1.When did you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?  I accepted Christ at age 5 and wrote a post on my spiritual birth while recording my youth with Mommy Piggy Tales.
2. What is the first thing you're going to say to Jesus when you see Him face-to-face? I will truly be speechless for the first time in my life...I will probably be on my face!
3. What qualities do you look for most in a friend? transparency...I tend to be very open and expect that back
4. What type of clothing do you enjoy wearing on a regular basis? - let's see...I wish they were smaller...probably jeans
5. Do you have any hobbies? love to paint, sew, read, cook, and entertain
6. How many brothers and sisters do you have and are you close? I am the oldest of four, three girls and one boy...different choices have separated us
7. Describe yourself in seven words or less.
determined, loving, caring, sensitive, logical, analytical, and creative

That was fun....I tag you and if you would love to join in then just answer the following questions and post on your blog. I will be visiting!   I just can't make up my mind on who to ask....so I must be fickle...so just go for it, consider yourself tagged.

  1. If you could go on two vacations, without any concerns, one  with your family and one with your husband where would you go?
  2. If you could write a book, what author would you want to be like and why?
  3. If you could dream up the most romantic evening with your spouse, what would it be?
  4. If you could hear your parents say anything about you, what would you want to hear?
  5. If you were to have your dream job/career/extra-occupation, other than the blessings of what you are doing today, what would it be?
  6. If you could be a missionary in any country, where would you go to serve?
  7. If you could go back for a day, year or month in your past, what would it be and why?
Have fun...it is nice getting to know you all better!!!  What a fun post!!

these are fun to read, haha...I might do your set of questions next week if I get the chance. Soo much going on in the next couple of days. Hope all if well with you...HUGS!

Trisha said...

Great questions, and I loved reading your answers, Janette! How wonderful that you'd want to visit with your grandmother and learn from her. My grandmother was like that, too. I was young when she died, but have memories and have stories of her having such a sweet spirit despite the many horrific trials she suffered. She was a beautiful lady, inside and out.

Enjoyed this post! Have a beautiful day, friend.

Sonja said...

I loved reading your answers, Janette. It is kind of fun to see what comes to mind. Most of us are not very far apart on our thinking!

Have a great day!

Oh, if you can go some day, DO go to Italy, Greece, & France. Wonderful places. I'd love to visit Israel too--on my wishlist. You can come cook cheesecake for me any day... my all-time fav. dessert! Enjoyed your answers.

Blessings, e-Mom

P.S. We love musicals too. ღ

oh how fun to read all this! I always enjoy getting to know people better through these questions.

Amanda said...

Janette, you made me chuckle reading some of your answers to Debbie's questions! Brain dead before 9am?! Sounds like me haha!

Also, your #2 answer to Sandy's was the same as mine. Just about exactly! lol!

Loved reading more about you!

Debbie said...

Janette, I loved reading your answers! I can only imagine is a favorite of mine too but I understand the significance for you being that you're a dancer. An early morning person; yay! And cheesecake ...yummy. I'm coming over to visit you. LOL.

You're my kind of friend Janette. We'd do fine together in our jeans and maybe soon they will be smaller. :)

How sweet that Sandy tagged you too. I have to put my post up to answer her questions soon.

Love you,

Karen said...

I really enjoyed reading your answers. I'll have to write my answers in my next post.

By the way, will you come make me a cheesecake? That's something I've never tried to make.

Stacy said...

Hi Janette,
I loved reading your answers and getting to know you more. Many similarities as I read your answers.

Such fun! Have a wonderful weekend.


Suzy said...

Now, we know all about you !!
Thanks for stoppin' by!

Hey Janette, I did the tag thing on my site for Saturday morning. You made up really nice questions. They made me really dig deep.

Due to time restraints, I didn't read all of the answers to the questions, but what I did read was quite interesting.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, and leaving a nice comment in regards to my poetic creation. I'm glad you enjoyed it, and I hope that you will come back to "visit" me again in the future.

By the way, you have a nice blog here too. :)

I consider myself a morning person also. I like to wake up before the rest of the family and get started on chores and preparing their breakfast.

Enjoyed reading your answers and getting to know you a bit more.

BTW, "I Can Only Imagine" is such a beautiful worship. Just about every time I hear it...it brings me to tears.

myletterstoemily said...

i loved all your answers and feel that i know
you just a bit better now.

it made me sad to see that your siblings
are distant through choices. my family went
through a torturous three or four years, too.

i will pray that the same One who settled
our hurts, will do the same for yours.
