Wonder why I’m sporting a halo? Me, too. But, read on…

Oy, vey. Talk about your navel gazing post. Sheesh. I only did this for you, MamaKat, because you prompted me, darn you, through your pretty much world famous Writer’s Workshop.


5 Things You Don’t Know About Me:

  1. I laugh loudly. But you can’t hear me over the internet. (At least, I don’t think you can. Can you?)
  2. I’m wearing my pajamas. Seriously. Doesn’t matter what time it is when you’re reading this. Odds are, I’m likely wearing my pajamas.
  3. I’m much cooler in real life. (This could be due to the fact that I’m wearing pajamas.)
  4. I might need a shower.
  5. I used to sing in Ukrainian over short-wave radio. (You might already know this, if your name is Donna, Val, or Dave. Or Stephanie or Paul. Otherwise, I’m pretty sure you didn’t know that.)
5 Things I’m Knowledgable About:
  1. I’ve spent a lot of time reading and studying the Bible. A lot, a lot, a lot. And it’s a darn shame it didn’t take any better than it has. 
  2. I know how to tell a story: there’s some kind of alchemy that happens when I sit down and start to tell one. I can do it in a live situation, and I can do it in print. I don’t understand it, but I accept it. And I think it’s probably a God-thing.
  3. I know how to cook pretty well. There must be osmosis involved in that, from growing up in the house that I did and just absorbing what my Mom was doing in the kitchen. Add in a little creative drive, sprinkle with several years of experience, and voilà. There you have it. The girl can cook.
  4. I know how to speak dog. I can channel your dog’s inner voice, if you don’t know what it sounds like yourself. I can summon it forth. I hate to brag, but, there it is.
  5. I know a fair amount about the music bidness, from behind the scenes. And my friends, there are things I wish I DIDN’T know about the music bidness.
5 Things I Know NOTHING About:
  1. Lawd, Miz Scahlett, I don’t know nufin’ ’bout birfin’ no baybiz. (AS IF I could resist that one!!!)
  2. I know nothing about, (nor do I CARE to know anything about) car maintenance, or car repair. If my husband had croaked this summer, I would have been Wheelless in the Boonies. I thank God above for a man who tends to such things here below.
  3. I know nothing about the advanced maths or sciences. (Sing with me: “Don’t know much trigonometry…”) I accept applied science and technology for the miracles that they are (and yes, I meant that to be ironic).
  4. I know nothing about politics: who COULD get us out of the economic mess we’re in? I have no idea. (Actually, I know enough about human nature to fear that the answer is “no one”. But I really don’t know if that’s right, either.)
  5. The future. I actually know nothing about the future, more’s the pity. Even though I not only predict it but also dread it, with regularity. (There are also occasions when I anticipate it and look forward to it with great optimism. Happily, my glass is often half-full.)
5 Things I Believe:
  1. I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth. And in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord, and in all the rest of the Apostles’ Creed.
  2. I believe that there is spiritually, inside of each one of us, a God-shaped hole, that longs for meaning and purpose for our lives that is beyond just ourself, and that that void was created by and meant to be filled by a relationship with our Creator, (who then teaches us how to express that love by reaching out in love to others). 
  3. I believe that Jesus intended for us to have life to the full, and not to kill our joy.
  4. I believe that a lot of my time I spend chasing after things that will not bring true joy or satisfaction.
  5. I believe I’ll go to bed, now.
Now, Gentle Reader, what about you? Surely this post has prompted you to want to tell me something! Something I don’t know about you? 
Something you’re knowledgable about?
Something you believe in?
Leave me a comment. Throw me a line. Bring out the hook, and get me off this stage! It’s your turn, now!
