Meme ~ 12 Questions…

I was tagged for a meme by Theresa at Seeking Diligence Blogspot to answer the following 12 questions…

1)What is your school name and why?

When I homeschooled our daughter for part of 4th, then 5th and 6th grade in the mid ’90’s we just called our school by our last name, B—–Homeschool.

2)How is your weather today?

Very nice crispy but sunny with puffy white clouds in the sky…

3)What steals your joy?

Confrontation. My own selfishness.

4)Name five blessings you received this week.

1) Spending time with my children in Washington.

2) The joy of reading a good book.

3)  Extra insight in the book of James that I’m reading

4) My daughter being accepted into UW for her last 2 years of college.

5) My husbands phone calls from California.

5)Favorite Scripture

There are so many but since the 4th grade one of my favorites is… 

John 14:1-3 ~ “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” 

Of course the King James version that I memorized this verse from in the 4th grade talked about a mansion not just a room. I think I was excited about that prospect….

6) Who in the Bible do you think you are most like?

 Moses for his public speaking awkwardness, the woman at the well for her evasiveness, Sons of thunder for their act first think later attitude, Peter for talking big and then denying Christ in a pinch. Thank God for His mercy and grace…

7)The passage of scripture you read last:

The book of James. I’m reading the whole book everyday for 20 days…

8) Have you ever praised God for something weird?

   Yes lots of things other people might consider weird. Finding something on sale, finding the perfect gift for someone, having a meal turn out. There are probably way weirder things that just aren’t coming to me…

9) If you were making a greeting card for God what would it say.

There are no words to express what you mean to this undeserving sinner. I want to shout your praise in a stadium filled with people!

10) What is the best miracle God has performed in your life, or what is your favorite answered prayer?

    I think the best miracle is that God’s hand was on my Father to cause Him to be the first in his family to immigrate to the U.S.A. where he later heard God’s call on his life at the Billy Graham Crusade in Los Angeles in 1963. This was a huge miracle in our family and has affected so many areas of our lives. My favorite answered prayer is that God has extended His grace and mercy to my children.

11)What is the most fun thing you have done lately.

Had a early birthday party for Dear with friends and family at our friends home in Washington and the other meals and evenings with my children.

12) How did you choose your screen name.

Sat around with my brother and others while he forced me to start a blog. We went back and forth. I’m a happy person in general and I wonder about a lot of things. (I’m curious) So I came up with The Happy Wonderer.

So now I tag whoever would like to do this meme. Maybe you don’t know what to post. Go ahead and do this meme and you’ll have a fresh post…

Hey! Let me know if you do it….

About Ellenhttp://I am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Hi again. Ya know, my first thought when seeing this was a thought I sometimes have — why isn’t there a weekly Christian meme? Maybe there is and I haven’t found it? I wish I could start one, or that someone would. Memes aren’t often non-Christian but so often I see questions that focus on self and stuff like, “If you had $10,000 to spend on yourself to add onto to your house, and you could only spend that money on yourself, how would you spend it?”

    This sort of ties in to one of your answers in this meme how selfishness steals your joy. It saddens me to see so much selfishness when so many people suffer. My life isn’t a shining example of Christ but I work on that everyday and one thing at my very core is never indulging in too much in order to please me and make my life more luxurious. I don’t believe for a second that life is about self… it’s about doing for others!

    In any case, because I often can’t be concise and must take the long way around — Selfishness steals my joy, too.

    have a nice rest o’ the weekend & God Bless!
