quiet time

Tiara's and Tantrums tagged my with a book meme.  I have to admit that at first i was not overly excited about what my come out of this one...but then i did it... I am reading To Live is Christ from Beth Moore (she rocks my face off btw).  

p. 56, 5th sentence says, 

"Everything we are and anything we possess as believers in Christ is a gift of grace.  Pure hearts before God must be cleansed from any hint of spiritual pride.  We must aggressively fight the enemy when he seeks to nullify our growth and good works by making them invitations for pride and prejudice."

{Here are the rules: Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST. Tag other peeps to do the same.}

{and my tags are at the bottom for both...sorry, i'm lazy today!}


then...i got hit again from Karen:  
it's so stinking hard to be popular {smile}
7 facts about me

1. i always sleep on the right side of the real reason, just always do.
2. i love flip flops and hate socks.  even in the snow, i rarely wear socks.
3. i am a coffee snob...i only like the best and i have to grind it each day.  i know, it's stupid, but it makes my day start with a refreshing smell.
4. i lost a brother, Matthew, when i was 5, who i remember so well.  he had CP and 16 other major things going against him, but he fought a great fight for 3 1/2 years.
5. i rebuilt the motor in my 1966 Mustang...seriously!
6. i painted my first car with my Dad when I was 3 years old.  it wasn't good, but that's how you trying.  thanks Dad for that has proved to be one that remains true today.
7. i hate putting laundry away.  hate it!  will wash and fold and sort...hate to put it away.

So my taggerific friends are:

{RULES...of which i typically break}
