here are my honest answers

I love Fridays here in the blogging world. If I don't have something timely or earth shattering to write about, then I can turn to any one of three different options; Show & Tell Friday, Aloha Friday, and Friday's Feast.

I wish I had something to share for Show & Tell, but sadly, I don't. So I started thinking which of the other two I wanted to use this week. And you know what, I'm going to do both - just because I want to.

Appetizer - What does the color dark green make you think of?
The deep forest - trees, moss, and such.

Soup - How many cousins do you have?
None! No aunts or uncles either. Both mom and dad were only children. I really wish I had some cousins.

Salad - On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how honest are you?
This question cracks me up. I could give you a high number but not be honest about it, thus my honest rating would be low, maybe very low. So now it doesn't matter what number I put here. You will wonder if I'm being honest. Makes you think, doesn't it?

Main Course - Name something that is truly free.
The first thing that came to mind was LOVE. I'm sure some could argue with that but I'm sticking with it.

Dessert - Using the letters in the word SPRING, write a sentence.
Sunshine's Powerful Rays Ignites New Gratitude
whew! That was harder than you think (you try it). As I sat here trying to come up with a sentence, I challenged Jake (who is up way too late doing homework) to come up with something. He thought for about 15 seconds (I kid you not) and blurted out this one; Stupid People Retire in New Guinea (no offense to New Guinea).

And my question for this week's Aloha Friday is one that we asked our youth group kids as an introduction to a lesson on our purpose in life.

Besides your name and pertinent dates, what would you want written on your tombstone?

My answer is:
She lived well, laughed often, and loved much

Well done, good and faithful servant.

Jendi said...

I'd like to have my favorite verse on it. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.

On my tombstone... hmmm...
She never met a chocolate she didn't like ;)
Okay, seriously... I don't know. I'm in a weird place in my life right now.... I'm not sure what could be written...

You are very creative and obviously a deep thinker. I have enjoyed visiting your blog.

On my tombstone: Child of God, Faithful Wife, Loving Mother

Those are the only things I want to be remembered for. Nothing else has eternal importance.

Tombstone: If I had been a butterfly I would have flown backwards and done the moonwalk everyday :)I love this post!! So glad I found your blog, I think it is great. Can't wait to hear more!

I'm sure my family will add something like, "Finally she gets to rest" on that tomb stone.

I prefer something like, "She walked with the Lord then and now"

She loved...

But I also like Jennifer in or's answer, but I didn't want to cheat. :)

Great questions. Thanks for stopping by my AF.

carrie said...

dakotablueeyes said...

I would probably go with a scripture as well. Not sure which one yet.

No cousins??? Wow...I can't imagine. Both my parents have 9 brothers and sisters. I have 25 cousins on each side and we are now all adding to it by having kids. Holidays can get BIG!!!
