My ABC's of Life

My friend Sarah did a blogpost the other day using the ABC's. She challenged her friends/readers to do the same. I thought it sounded like fun so here are my ABCs of life as of today. Enjoy!

A-Andrea. My sister Andrea and I spent some time together at Camp of the Cross and with mom a couple weeks ago. It was so good to spend time with her since we dont get to do it that often. We are going to a F-M RedHawks game together on Thurs night too!

B-Books, Books, and more Books! I have so many books to read right now. I love reading but trying to find time to read is the key. Im almost done with my third book so far this summer but have like 6 or 7 more. I told myself I couldnt buy anymore books but then what do I do on Saturday...buy another book? Oh well they will come in handy during those cold winter months!

C-Camp of the Cross. It is always so good to spend some time in this place that will always hold a special place in my heart.

D-Dilworth Lutheran. I am so blessed to be part of this community of faith. Can hardly believe I just celebrated my 3rd anniversary there. Gearing up for the school year....confirmation, Sunday School, Milestones, etc.

E-Eat, Pray Love. My friend came to F-M on Friday and we went and saw this movie. I loved the book so was really looking forward to the movie. The movie was good and I enjoyed it but I will always love the book over the movie. I would love to do an Eat, Pray, Love trip....maybe someday when Im richer.....LOL!

F-Family. It is always good to spend time with family. It has been way tooo long. I know Dad is busy with the farm as is the rest of the fam. Hopefully soon we will get to spend some quality time together.

G-Garden Vegetables. I love garden veggies! I dont have a garden but I love going to farmer's markets to find fresh produce. I also like when I come home to find surprises in front of my door. Tonight it was two fresh tomatos and a green pepper. How cool!

H-Happy! I am happy with my job, my family, my friends.

I-Iowa. I do miss Iowa and the castle sometimes!

J-Jack. My cousin's 4 month old son needs prayers. He has been diagnosed with the same condition as his sister. He is strong and healthy. Jack is loved by so many!

K-Kite-Flying. So in my down-time I like to watch tv. Have you seen the kite-flyer on America's Got Talent? Amazing huh!!!

L-LifeLight! I am so excited to go to the LifeLight music festival this year over Labor Day weekend. It will be good since I havent been there in two years. I also am excited to celebrate my birthday that weekend. I also am super stoked to see Francesca Battestelli in concert.

M-Mom. So this has two thoughts...One I love my mommy so dearly and am so glad to have spend some time with her...twice this summer at camp. The other--I yearn to be a mom myself.

N-North Dakota! I love ND and will always be a girl from the prairie. So good to get to spend some time in the prairie. I love being able to see the sky as far as I can see!

O-Older (but not sure about wiser...LOL) I will be just another year older on Sept 3.

P-Pet. I love my apartment but sometimes the loneliness gets to me and I yearn for a pet. I wonder what I would get...maybe a kitten, maybe a puppy. Who knows?

Q-Quilt Raffle. The church is having a fall dinner this year as a major fundraiser. We are currently selling raffles and the big raffle prize is this beautiful hand-made quilt.

R-Radishes. I love radishes but I like them even more when I can share them with my friends. You know who you are?!?!

S-Single! Still a single girl here. Yearning for Mr. Right, a family, etc so asking God for patience until it happens for me! Sooner rather than later would be nice!

T-Tweeting. Yes, I gave in and have a Twitter account! Its actually been fun learning how to Tweet.

U-Unique. "fearfully and wonderfully made in God's image" What more can I say?!?! :)

V-Vocal. Its interesting that when I first started working at CCM, they couldnt get me to talk and now I cant shut up. Ive become very vocal about important issues in my life...most especially mental illnesses and diaconal ministry.

W-Wartburg and Its People. I love my seminary and miss it and the people. Im glad that I get to catch up with WTSers once a month or so. So good for my soul!

X-Xtreme heat and xylophone. So this is probably cheating but it has been soooo hot here lately. The last couple of days it has been nice to have some cooler area. Also Im stealing Sarah's X word because I cant think of anything else. Ive always enjoyed listening to the xylophone.

Y-You! I miss you!

Z-Zero. Im with my friend Sarah! None left...all the letters are filled. You should check it out. Sarah's right. It is harder than you would think! Give it a try!
