I Spare You! Trust Me! :)

This week my thoughts have just not been the blogging sort.
It'd be like serving you raw cookie dough, or uncooked lasgna!
Really!
Lot's of ingredients!
But not really any complete thoughts that would be appetizing!
Sorry for my lack of hospitality!
So, here's a little something.

What Car Would You Be?

You would be part Mini Cooper. Everywhere you go, you turn heads with your charm and charisma. You're no deep thinker, but taking life seriously can be such a drag!
You would be part Volvo Station Wagon. You may never be the snazziest, but who cares what others think about you? You power-steer your way to soccer practice with assuredness and confidence.

Don't worry--lots of people like raw cookie dough. Maybe throw in some ice cream and you will have a hit! :)

Regina said...

That was fun!
This is what I got:
"You would be a Stretch Hummer. You are as big and bold as they come. You get what you want, when you want, and you can run over old ladies without even knowing it."

I am not at all surprised!!

I so love raw cookie dough. In fact sometimes it is better than the cooked variety. Please, please, please share some raw cookie dough posts.

Oh I want to be a Mercedes. Its more likely I would be a clapped out rusty banger of a car though! These were fun. I did some too.

That's funny...and I agree with Sharon, I love raw cookie dough (if you served me that I would know that you totally loved me!) Here's what the quiz said about me...
You would be a Stretch Hummer. You are as big and bold as they come. You get what you want, when you want, and you can run over old ladies without even knowing it.

Hey, Sharon! Cool! I can't wait to see it! I'm so glad you all had a great trip!

Hi there, Regina! Your results made me laugh. I can see you as determined and successful, but I honestly do NOT see you running over little old ladies! What a hoot!

Heidi, I know, right? I just shake my head!? What a conflicted combination! But, you know this particular week, I guess it fits, just (thank goodness) not every week!

Nicki! You stay at home mom you! I am SOO praying for you girl! The story about your book was so cool! And I am so hoping for you & your hubby to have a sweet & funny date!

Leslie! 3 Cheers! I'm not Alone! :) another Volvo! And thanks for the vote of confidence! You're so sweet!

Kim, You too! Ok, well, actually I guess I am dependable 1/2 the time! :) But, there's hope for me!


Denise, that's 3 of you dependable to a "T"! What a hoot!

Hi there, Renee'! Yeah, my youngest loves it too!

Carol, you're the best! Raw Cookie Dough coming up!

Bunny Girl, it could be worse you could be halvsies! :) Like me!

Cecily, Ok, another halvsies! I got the mini cooper half! Woot!

Tiff, you did not lose it, It's a long story, but that post is long gone. Sorry! I promise to tag you next!

Hey, Mel! How funny! Again, I do NOT see you running over little old ladies! Too funny! I do see you as determined & excited! But never running over people! That just doesn't come across! ;)

Happy weekend everbody! And enjoy the cookie dough!

xoxox,
Maria

What Does it Mean Anyway? "Free to Fly"...

Well, it's like this: Here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Free: a : having the legal and political rights of a citizen b : enjoying civil and political liberty c : enjoying political independence or freedom from outside domination d : enjoying personal freedom : not subject to the control or domination of another2 a : not determined by anything beyond its own nature or being : choosing or capable of choosing for itself...having a scope not restricted by qualification 7 a : not obstructed, restricted, or impeded ...Now, here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Fly:1 a : to move in or pass through the air with wings b : to move through the air or before the wind or through outer space c : to float, wave, or soar in the air ... a : to take flight ...6 : to work successfully ...Examples which apply from Websters: fly high : to be elated - fly in the face of or fly in the teeth of : to stand or act forthrightly or brazenly in defiance or contradiction of

What does this mean in my life? This means that in life we are meant to be free. While historically mankind has not always enjoyed the opportunity to fully appreciate what that means, we are so indescribably fortunate as to live in a time of the greatest spiritual, physical, financial and political freedom ever known. Freedom doesn't come cheap, nor does it come easy. But the best things in life don't come that way do they? As I write this I am struck by how this sounds like a political statement, and for me this is much more of a spiritual thing, but, same goes for that (political that is). Freedom doesn't come easy. And it's worth whatever fight you have to make to overcome in your life in order to live a life that succeeds. Now the questions is - what is success for you? What is your standard? In my mind what is needed is a definite target - because you can't hit and maintain a moving target. A stable, rock-solid, anchor with no variable, yet multi-faceted. Something pure, just and worthy. If you look at any web page of news you can see that our society is certainly lacking in this area. What a great time to live as a rebel! Nowadays to be a rebel, all you have to do is be willing to engage in the battle of life, while anchored to Christ!
