David was upset. I countered her statement,
"It could be God, Emily. The Holy Spirit lives in our hearts and does communicate with us."
David was satisfied and he lay back down to sleep.
But Emily, with her eyes still closed whispered to me,
"It was just his imagination!"
Then she popped her thumb back into her mouth.

I am starting my hit list because -
I was just tagged by coffeepoweredmom
The rules for playing blog tag are….
- You must post the rules
- Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post
- Create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged (or use the existing ones)
- Tag (eleven) people with a link to your post
- Let them know they’ve been tagged
I’m not big on having regrets. What was your biggest regret and why do you think that it helped you to get where you are today? After all, if you had changed it, something else about you would have changed.
My biggest regret is that I have taken so long to smarten up and shake off an inherited victim identity. Most women have it. I can finally, for minutes at a time, live in the light and receive a joy that is incredibly infectious to everyone around me. Because this process has taken so long, I treasure freedom and joy.
Also it took me a long time to start writing again, although I am still not drawing and painting. This long lapse has helped me because I still have hundreds of things to write about that are stuffed inside. Also time gave me perspective and insight into the most insignificant events.
Where is your favourite place to be?
In my garden or in the library reading of typing.
How much money do you spend on groceries every month?
We still have meat in our freezers from our hobby farm but less than $400.00 per month because all my adult children contribute to the meals when they come out.
Is there an errand that you hate running with a particular vengeance?
I hate all errands that is why I still don't drive. I hate shopping. My husband shops, I clean and cook.
Have you ever had surgery? And for what?
No, except my tonsils. I am very healthy.
What day is garbage day?
No day is arbage day. We have to drive our garbage to the dump.
Are your parents married? Divorced? Married to other people?
My parents are very happily married for 58 years and counting. They stuck by each other through difficult times and are reaping the rewards now.
Fill in the blanks. I think people are _______when they ___________.
I think people are ignorant when they dismiss an opinion, person or the chance to experience something new without at least attempting to talk, listen and learn about something it.
Do you have a recurring dream? About what?
One scene springs to mind immediately.An empy city with flat-topped, rectangular, warm sandy coloured buildings. There are no windows or doors in the buildings, and I'm wandering up and down the streets, completely alone.
Have you started your Christmas (or other winter holiday) shopping?
Are you kidding me? No I subscribe to the chaos and panic method of preparing for Christmas.
Do you have a particular trait, characteristic, etc. that you do NOT want to pass on to your kids?
How long should I make this list? My husband and I have conciously confronted each inherited ,generational curse and sin and said, "the 'buck' stops here. You are not touching my kids." We are still dealing with negative stuff as if surfaces but my kids are much stronger and freer than we ever were at their age. Hence my saying "MY CEILING IS MY CHILDREN'S FLOOR."
Now is the FUN part of this exercise. I make up 11 of my own questions.
1.Explain the title of your blog. Why did you choose it?
2. Why do you write?
3. What is your greatest fear?
4. What makes you smile or laugh out loud
5. What’s your worst habit, and what are you doing to change it?
6. What do you think about God, eternity and/or prayer?
7. What makes you sad (or mad) enough to cry
8. Describe the most embarrassing thing you have ever done or said?
9. Do you have any hopes or dreams?
10. What did you want to be when you grew up?
11 Do you hate me for tagging you?
