Two 4 Tuesday

My friend Sandy tagged me for a cool meme. It was hard to choose only five things though because He is so amazing! If you have not done this meme, please take some time and do it. This meme has made me think and fall deeper in love with my Savior.

5 THINGS I DIG ABOUT JESUS

1. First and foremost, how could I not love the fact that He willingly gave up His life for each and every one of us? He died so that we might live! John 3:16

2. I love how Jesus treated women and children. With women he never talked down to them or put them in their place. He was honorable and respectful at all times. And with children he never shooed them away. He must have been so loving for all the children to want to be with Him and follow Him.

3. I love that Jesus has experienced being human. He has also been hungry, tired, lonely, angry, rejected, afraid and experienced pain. When we pray to Him about these things He fully understands.

4. I love that He is my Shepherd and when I need to go out of my comfort zone He will provide the necessary means for me! What better place to be than in the center of His will. I can have complete trust in Him.

5. I love the fact that Jesus is and will always be the ONLY man I need in my life.

He is the Way ~ John 14:6
He is the Truth ~ John 14:6
He is the Life ~ John 14:6
He is Bread ~ John 6:48
He is Living Water ~ John 4:10


WHAT'S IN A NAME?

Another good friend, Christine, has tagged me for a fun new meme...well, new to me anyway.

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.

2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.

3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.

4. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

My name is Amy Diane; although I always dreamed of being either Amy Marie or Amy Lynn!


D ~ Donny Osmond. Christine, does this surprise you? From the time I was about twelve I discovered him and have loved him ever since! If it wasn’t for my husband I would probably have a poster of him up in my room. Yes, I am that immature! Hey, I’m just being real here peeps! At least when I wear my purple socks he doesn't realize why...lol!

I ~ Indecisive. I drive my husband crazy! He’ll ask what I want to do or where do I want to have dinner and I honestly don’t care. I’ll say whatever or wherever. I’m the type of person that if you’re happy, then so am I! As long as we're together having fun you can decide what we do.

A ~ Artistically challenged. I can’t even draw a good stick person! I would so love to be creative and paint, draw or even decorate. But that was not my calling. My philosophy is if there is a nail in the wall then hang the picture there! I’m also musically challenged. Can’t carry a tune even if it only weighed an ounce! And I so want to play the drums. Sad, isn’t it? Please don’t tell Donny!

N ~ Naive. Yes, even at 43 I am still quite naive to the things of this world. My daughter has come home from work and asked me what certain things meant and I’ve not had a clue. We’ve had to go ask my “worldly” husband and in one case my mother what something meant! But I think I’d rather be naive of the silliness of this world than to be an expert.

E ~ Excitable. My husband laughs at me because I get excited over the smallest of things. A free sample in the mail or a good coupon makes my day! When we go to the SEMA show in Las Vegas it’s almost too much for me to handle because we come home with suitcases full of free stuff! And what’s even more fun is that we give most of it away to the kids at church and they are as excited as I am!

Now I have to try to find people to tag with the same letters of my middle name! Let’s see…how about…?

Amy,No surprise!! I have to tell you Josh made me *giggle* he made a new friend at school. At first I thought he said Don, but then he spelled it out Donny, and I smiled to myself and immediately thought of you. :)

Oh, cool. I really wanted to do this meme, and I guess I'm Nice Friend #4, so I'll be working on that for later in the week . . . maybe the weekend. I'll leave you a comment once my post is up.
Thanks for the comment you left on my blog regarding your prayers for me. I think I'm finally ready to write about my week last week, so that post should be up either today or tomorrow, depending on what interferences I have today that would keep me from blogging.
((Hugs))

Thanks for tagging me. It was fun learning more about you. My middle name is Colleen and with those double letters it may be quite a challenge. I'll let you know when I get it done!
