A wandering heart's has tagged me to complete this meme.
Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things,as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!
- I would love to be in a community play/musical. Would love it! Even if I don't have the talent. Trust me, I know, and I have several years in high school drama appearing as "chorus" to prove it.
- I did a summer as an ice cream truck driver.
- I can't tell left from right without thinking about it, but instead North, South, East and West are how I do directions fairly easily.
- I like to cross stitch, but I rarely make/take the time to do it, and I have one piece that I have been working on since 1992 that is about half way done.
- I really think men are more handsome in glasses. So even though my hubby has perfect eye sight I sometimes tease him that I'm gonna get him some reading glasses just for fun.
- I love a dill pickle wrapped in cream cheese and a slice of ham, or just a dill pickle with peanut butter. I don't care for a dill pickle plain though . . . and these likings are whether I am pregnant or not!

I hate it when people forward bogus warnings, and I have even done it myself a couple times unintentionally...but this one is real, and it's important. So please send this warning to everyone on your e-mail list.
If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking for ticks due to the warm weather and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up, DO NOT DO IT!! THIS IS A SCAM!! They only want to see you naked.
I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid.

I'm writing this to you simply so you'll know and can be praying with us. I
hope you will read the story through eyes of faith, the way we're living it, and
not fear. I don't want to draw attention to ourselves in any way, but I also
don't want any of you to find out second-hand, so here goes...
Yesterday I hadto work a little late and as I arrived at our new home at around 6:30 (on the 25 acre Bible College site) I noticed the barbed-wire gate was mangled and open and our van was in an odd place. I was immediately tense. Yesenia, holding Ezra, called to me from the house and I could tell something was wrong. We walked
toward each other and when I was close enough I could see her eyes were teary.
She told me that about 90 minutes earlier she saw two vehicles plow through the
front gate. She rushed to lock the front door, then the back door, but as soon
as she turned around three men kicked through the front door and entered the
house. One had a handgun and two had automatic rifles. There were about 5 more
men outside. She got on the floor with the boys and began praying. They said
they were looking for guns as they searched through drawers, cabinets, and
still-unpacked boxes. They wanted to know who we were and why we were there.
Yesenia explained we're missionaries and we're building a Bible College. The
main spokesman of the group began reassuring Yesenia that they would not harm
them. They stayed about 20 minutes, apparently waiting for a ride. When their
ride didn't come they asked for the keys to our van, which they took down the
road. About 5 minutes later they brought it back and left it just inside the
gate. No one was hurt, nothing taken (except our van keys) and there was only
slight damage to the facilities.
The boys were scared, but are adjusting well. Most locals we talk to are pretty sure it was some sort of undercover police operation. Obviously, it was scary and we're shaken up. We're staying with some friends until our nerves calm down. But we plan to persevere. We're committed to seeing mighty things happen on that property. We're no strangers to hardship, but we don't invite it. If we considered the situation to be truly dangerous, we wouldn't go back, but there's no reason to believe that kind of incident will happen again.
This story probably elicits a number of emotions in you, the reader. I assure you we've felt them all, yes ALL. We've chosen to direct those emotions into prayer that God will protect Mexico and, above all, that He will raise up thousands of fearless Christian servants at this Bible College that will rock the foundations of this and every other corrupt culture on the planet.
We encourage you to stand with us in prayer, knowing that He that is in us is
greater than he that is in the world.
