Interview from missfortune:

are you happy with your current job and explain your answer.

I like my job, though it's a bit tedious at times.

what is the meanest thing you've ever done and why?

I'm not sure, really. My greatest fear is hurting another person, so I have an incredibly hard time intentionally doing something "mean" to anyone. I would have difficulty overlooking the potential consequences for my actions.

what 3 characteristics of yourself would you change and what would you replace them with?

My overly cautious nature -> confidence
Dyslexia -> academic discipline
Insomnia -> athletic discipline

would you rather have true love and die poor or be filthy rich and never experience real love?

True love.

name 3 famous people and take one quality,ablility etc from each that you would like to have

Peter O'Toole - Either his dignity or his incredible wit
John Williams - His musical genius
Josh Groban - His amazing voice

The Rules:
1 -- Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2 -- I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
3 -- You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
4 -- You'll include this explanation.
5 -- You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed

Current Mood: sleepy sleepy
Current Music: "Vincent" -Josh Groban

Interview me! I think I've done this before, but repetition has never been a road block...

1. What is your quest? (I had to skip name since I already know that)

2. What is your favorite color?

3. (Ran out of applicable Monty Python questions) In what ways does your love for your husband grow and/or in what ways has it grown in the past? (you don't have to be specific if it's too personal a question)

4. How do you approach problems or situations in which there seems to be no right answer or all solutions result in equally harsh consequences?

5. How do you approach your spiritual growth?

1. I seek the grail! Ummmm...no. To bring joy into the lives of others, to serve God, and to perfect the martini.

2. Blue! No, yellow! Aaaaargh....actually, it's saffrony orange.

3. Hmmmm...tough question. That's very complex! I would guess that the closest I can come is that there are two things that draw me closer to him. First is that, even after nine years, I discover new things about him frequently, and each new thing I discover adds to my knowledge about who he is. And as he is a man of great integrity, each detail thus added only fills out the already-established picture I have of him, and creates more respect and love for him. Second is the shared experience. Nine years has provided a lot of trials and joys. We've had children together, embarked on raising them together. We've traveled, had plenty and had some extent of want. We've bid tearful farewells to friends and family and gladly welcomed others. Because in all that we have been united, we now have a wealth of experience and reliance at our disposal. Every happening, whether as big as a death in the family or as small as a silly nickname one of us has given the other, has subtly reshaped who "we" are. It has also had the benefit of causing us to grow together, to reduce the sting of daily petty annoyances. Arguments in the beginning were very hard, because neither of us had many comforting memories to draw upon. But when we do disagree now, he remembers that I held his grandfather's hand as he was dying, and I remember that he patiently taught me how to drive.

That still doesn't really cover it, I know, but I think it's really the best I can do...
Proverbs 30:18 "There are three things which are too wonderful for me,
Yes, four which I do not understand:
19The way of an eagle in the air,
The way of a serpent on a rock,
The way of a ship in the midst of the sea,
And the way of a man with a maiden."

4. Pray, ask advice of trusted friends, trust God to make me choose correctly, and then commit myself to doing one, close my eyes, and jump. The hard thing is not to look back.

5. Poorly, at best! : ) I find that my spiritual growth presents itself in many different ways, and so there is no one way I approach it. Sometimes I find myself champing at the bit, waiting for the next wave to come so that I can see better...and sometimes it's more like God has me by the shoulders and is dragging me kicking and screaming into the next leg of the journey. The best way I've found is to look for the hand of God in the little things around me every day, so that I learn to spot His intervention...and to have a few people that I can trust, who seem to be pulled the way I am, who can encourage me and scold me and lift me up.

The older I get and the more committed I am to what I believe, the more I discover that the more I know, the less I understand. I think that as one grows to learn more of God, one is more and more left like a little child watching a magic trick and being amazed. I am amazed in God.
