Friday Five Meme

Susie at A Pink Carnation in Bloom tagged me for this meme.

1)Five Minutes to yourself. How would you spend them ideally?
-I would have to say praying to God. I love having time to myself and when I do get chance to be by myself I usaually want to spend time with God. Even if it is only five minutes. Like in the mornings on my five minute drive to work.

2)Five Dollars to spend right now. How and where would you spend it?
-Probably at Cold Stone Creamery on some for coffee lovers only ice cream. I love coffee flavored ice cream from there.

3)Five Items in your house you could part with right now.
-My bedroom furniture. Acutally most of furniture we own. We still have furniture from when Doug was in college.
-Doug would say my two cats but that will never happen.
-My mixer. I would love to have a Kitchen Aid mixer.
-My coffee pot.
-My toaster. I love to cook and bake and all my kitchen appliances need to be replaced.

4)Five Items in your house you positively, absolutely could never part with.
-My violin that my dad bought me in the 5th grade.
-My pictures of my great grandmother
-My cedar chest that my mother-in-law gave me for a christmas present. I was surprised when she gave it to me. They found it at a antique store and it was painted black and she had it stripped and refinished for me. And Doug's grandpa fixed the top of it by putting some braces on the inside because the top of if was split into two peices. He does wood working anyway, he made it look nice. So it means alot to me.
-My quilts made by my grandmother and the quilt I made a few years ago. My grandmother's quilts are made out double knit fabic from the 70's and they are tied quilts.
-My bunny rabbit that was given to me when I was born. He only has one eye left now. He is 33 years old.

5)Five Words you love.
-Jesus. He is such a part of my life. He has always been there but have recently found Him again and it is so awesome to have Him in your life.
-Awesome. I use this word a lot I guess especially to describe the experience's I have had in the last several months about what has happened to me by surrendering my life to God.
-Grace. God's Grace is wonderful.
-Hope. There is always hope.
-Faith. My Faith in God has Grown so much over the last sereval months. I guess all these words means so much because of what I have been though the last year with my back and other things. I now look back and what I thought was hopeless at the time really wasn't I was just looking in all the wrong places for what I needed and what I needed was God and found Him in a very special way. And God put some very special people in my life to help me find my way.
Philippians 1:6
And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.
