15 Things You Should Know About Me Before We Become Friends…

October 18th, 2010 Posted by Leave a comment Go to comments

They’re Gone!  Thank you to all of you who wrote in for your free copy of Sunday’s Promise.  I will post a second contest in about a month to give away copies of the second book, Monday’s New Beginning.  Be sure to look for it.

1. I always thought I’d be a writer when I grew up. Then I hit the half-century birthday and discovered I’d overshot my goal without hitting the mark.
2. I swore I’d never marry a preacher.
3. I wasn’t sure I ever wanted to have kids, so I had three just to try it out.
4. I am not, never have been, do not intend to ever become a perfectionist.
5. The pursuit of money is a tiresome taskmaster and not worth losing family, health, or sleep in order to gain.
6. I look forward to growing old with my hubby.
7. Teenagers are a whole lot more fun than toddlers.
8. My greatest ambition is to become organized. (Coincidentally, this is also my husband’s greatest ambition for me.)
9. Purses are my passion.
10. A great find at a garage sale makes my day.
11. I drink my caffeine cold – a cola to start my day!
12. I love being a pastor’s wife.
13. Until I met Neree I had never known a happy PW, so initially becoming one was not a pleasant prospect.
14. I love church and the Church.
15. I just joined Romance Writers of America — whodathunkit?

    Janice, I enjoyed reading the 15 things. I would like to know the story of your journey from number 2 to 12. It must have taken the grace of God. I am yet to read your two books!

    Yes, all 15 of the above statements about you would actually be true; confirmed by me, one of your oldest friends! (<: Sorry it took me so long to read this. Perhaps I should start a list, but I'm not brave enough.

    I am not a pastor’s wife. However, through the years I have had, for lack of a better word, a “feeling” that someday I would be. Here I am 53 and talking to a man that I am sure that God has placed in my life. We were drawn to each other initially by sharing our faith on a poetry site on facebook. We live not miles, but states apart. The more we visit the more we find that we have in much in common and like about each other very a lot. Recently, he mentioned that he has had a slight leading to go into the ministry, which I can sooo see him doing. His love for God and people along with his ability to communicate but still wanting God to order his words…yeah, I can see it happening in some form or another. But I will admit this to you. I am a bit nervous about the prospect yet excited at the possibility that this is what God had in mind for me all along…remember Sarah and Abraham. Sarah laughed. Now I’m not talking about “babies” here but to think that God could bring this about at this stage of my life. It’s too soon to tell for sure. All we know is that we were brought together for some purpose. I hope that if He does take me there, I will be humble enough to allow Him to help me to be up for the task/privilege/responsibility. NOW who’s the writer? Sorry. Thank you for having this site. BTW…I love your “15 Things” 😉
