A Little Fun

Amazing blogger Becky Miller (no, not my character...the living breathing woman behind A Christian Worldview of Fiction) tagged me for a meme. I don't usually make time for them, but this one looked fun.

What is your favorite word?

compassion (I love the word "passion" and I love the tenderness of coming along someone else evoked in this word)

What is your least favorite word?

bitterness (scares me - one of my fears is letting hurts and wounds turn into this)

What inspires you (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?

nature, music, dance, great conversations, praying with someone

What dampens your enthusiasm (creatively, spiritually or emotionally)?

sneering responses, apathy from others, loneliness (and ironically also too much interaction with others - I'm SO conflicted! LOL!)

What sound or noise do you love?

the near silent breath of a sleeping baby, my husband's heart beating beneath my ear, my children's laughter

What sound or noise do you hate?
certain kinds of angry-toned rap music full of harsh language

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Being a midwife

What profession would you not like to do?
Taxi-driver (I have no sense of direction and HATE driving)

What one book, other than the Bible, do you read again and again for inspiration?
I've re-read books by Philip Yancy, John Eldrege, C.S.Lewis, Madeline L'Engle, Calvin Miller, Richard Foster...to name a few

What would you like to hear God say when you arrive in Heaven?
Welcome home, dear one.

Now I'm tagging some other friends to play:

Camy Tang, Jonathan Friesen, Amy Wallace

I played! I know I'm a little late in the game, but I joined the fun. ;-)

Thanks for inviting me!
