Titus 2:11-13

"For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus."

Blog Hop--10 Things About Me

In thinking about how the blogging community can be a source of godly fellowship and encouragement in this busy, technology-driven era, my blogging friend Lynnette is hosting a blog hop to facilitate the "meeting" of us bloggers. In order to help us get to know one another, she has suggested we share ten charming, interesting, fun things about ourselves. So, here's mine!...

1. Ten weeks ago today I learned that God had spared my life. Upon being opened up to deliver my twins via the repeat cesarean section that I so did not want, my doctor discovered a complete separation of my old uterine scar. The only thing holding my babies inside my uterus was the unbroken bag of waters. Had I labored for the VBAC that I so earnestly desired and prayed for (and for which I was denied) or had my water broken, both me and my babies would probably have lost our lives. Praise God for doing according to His will and not mine....

2. Summer is my favorite time of year. Warm weather, fireworks, sweet corn... all my favorite things!

3. God has blessed me with an amazing husband. We celebrated our fourth anniversary one week after the birth of our third and fourth children!

4. I am a perfectionist who isn't very good at organizing things.... Does that make sense?... :-)

5. I have shaved my legs (almost) every day since I got married.

6. When I was getting to know my husband (before we started dating), I purposely didn't wear makeup because I wanted him to see the real me (and as it turns out, the Me he would have four years of marriage and four children later!). :-)

7. I was baptized in India while there on a three-week missions trip.

8. I am known by my family as being a long teeth brusher. The joke is, "She'll be ready in five minutes. She just has to brush her teeth." :-)

9. I was diagnosed with writer's cramp, a focal point dystonia of the forearm, after gradually and mysteriously losing the ability to write with my right hand. I have since taught myself to write left-handed and to use the computer for as many things as possible.

10. When I am home alone with my kids, I can often be found dancing and singing silly songs to them. (Please call before stopping by.) ;-)

Stopping by from Lynette's blog...

Your ten things were probably one of the most varied and interesting ones I've read! I loved reading it. I think that not wearing makeup during that time is a good idea, and that I'm going to have to consider doing that.

Praise God for number one! "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord..."

Blessings,

Hannah

I loved reading your list! #1 still amazes me and gives me chill bumps when I read and remember God's incredible mercy to you and your babies!!! He is so good even when His will is opposite from what we want...His plan is always better!

Take care,
Kelly

I am totally with you on #4. In high school, Mrs. Brown even told my mom that I a too much of a perfectionist at PT confrences. My mom didn't see a problem in that! I am also pretty unorganized!

Linda said...

Angela, you are a very interesting person. An
"unorganized perfectionist". ((smile))

The miracle that you and the twins are alive gives me goose bumps! What a story of God's power and grace.

Your idea of not wearing make up so that your guy could see the real you is a good one. But I am someone that wears make up, and when I don't I look tired (from my allergic shiners), and I look sick. But most people don't need much to look pretty. And true beauty does come from within.

I enjoyed your list today.
Love, Linda @ Truthful Tidbits
