Love of Words Friday Five

Description or attribute of yourself---"Smiley"! When I was in college, a couple of friends nicknamed me this. They said it was because I always had a smile on my face. My friend "Chewy" never let a day go by without calling me by my nickname. Unfortunately he committe suicide and is no longer here on this earth. I miss him and miss being called by that nickname but the truth doesnt feel right having someone else call me that!

Activity you enjoy---Poetry! I know not everyone enjoys or understands poetry. But I love it! It has become such a form of prayer for me!

Word that is spelled or pronounced in an interesting way---Hmmmmm thats a hard one. I guess if I had to pick one, it would be kiwi. Ive always thought it was such an interesting fruit and looks interesting.

Passion of yours---Creative! I love being creative whether it be scrapbooking, writing, creating!

Word that brings you hope, peace, or comfort---Ok so I cant pick just one here. For me, it's grace and hope and peace. As a Lutheran, grace means a lot to me. Grace is how I live my life. "It is by grace through faith that you have been saved but it is not your own doing but a gift of God!" Peace! As we watch the events of the world around us, I hear the words of Jesus, "My peace I leave you!" Peace is what I yearn with! Hope allows me to hope for the good and better etc in life!

Word you like to repeat or sing---Hmmmm! Im drawing a blank here!


  1. Kiwi -- good one! A strange fruit in name and substance and always seems exotic to me. Thanks!

  2. It is just since attending seminary and my spiritual direction program that I have learned to appreciate and value poetry.

  3. I so love poetry and often find it to be prayer, and the other way around. Nice.
