Get To Know Me Tag

I always assume the only people who see my blog are family and close friends, I have a sneaky suspicion there are a lot more readers out there that I don’t know personally. I thought this ‘get to know me’ tag would be a fun way to tell you a little bit about myself

March 

3) What is your favourite colour?

White/Cream (soft and clean) 

4) What is your favourite memory?

Bowen and I talk about this often but as a child, when my brother and I were in the back seat on the way to supper and my parents surprised us by saying we were going to Hawaii, the next day! 

5) Describe a day in your life

Wake up usually no later that 7 sometimes 6:45, drink a glass of lemon water immediately followed by coffee. Cuddle up in our sitting room for my bible study.. currently doing Bible Study Fellowship and we are studying Revelation. “All will sing, ‘The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign for ever and ever'” (read that this am and love dwelling on the victory in Christ, “Jesus’ resurrection is the unshakeable reality that makes certain the resurrection to life and joy of all who put their trust in Him”

After study I either head to the water to run or get on the treadmill at the gym (most days I run four miles) if it’s Monday i’ll be at spin! Then I come home and eat a big snack

Then I bake and decorate all the cookie orders I have for the day, stopping for lunch around 1  (eat a big salad) then decorate more cookies. I usually stop at 3-4 and clean up the kitchen, seal up cookies and fix supper. Bowen and I have supper together and sometimes go watch the sunset or sit outside then we usually watch a show and hit the sack around 9-early birds I know.

    And there His faithfulness is told  …..                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          One day all things will be made new

    And in your kingdom paved with gold
    I’ll praise your faithfulness of old
    I’ll praise your faithfulness of old
