8 . . .

I was tagged by Mindy, and although I usually don't do tags, I figured I'd do this one, because I'm holding a sleeping baby, and don't want to get up.

8 things I am passionate about:
1. Jesus
2. Troy and my kids
3. Truth
4. Extending Grace to others
5. The Holy Bible
8. Reading

8 words/phrases I use often:
1. No.
2. The answer hasn't changed. It's still no.
3. Is that how Jesus would want you to act?
4. Didn't I feed you yesterday?
5. Put that/those down/back.
6. I'm gonna beat you. (This is always an empty threat, which renders it ineffective)
7. You've got to be kidding me.
8. I love you.

8 things I want to do before I die:
1. Go on lots of missions trips.

  1. I love your 8 favorite places to eat!

  2. We have lots of Stargate Aalantis recorded for you. And I don't think there is a such thing as a really comfortable bra.

  3. Wow! You actually did a tag! I KNEW I should pick you. ;) I love your 8 favorite places to eat too. I agree! I've had the most luck with Victoria's Secret bras as far as comfort goes... pricey, but worth it for me.

  4. Yeah, I have two Victoria's Secret bras. Comfort is not part of their job description, apparently.
