Seven things I did before I was a Mom?

3. Learned to crochet.
4. Oil painted.
5. Learned to knit.
6. My husband and I flagged mobile homes on the highway between Anchorage and Fairbanks for more money to pay bills.
7. We also delivered floral bouquets to help make ends meet.

Seven things I do now that I know Jesus really loves me:

1. I want to please Him.
2. Try to learn more about Him so I know how to please Him (Bible reading).
3. Try to be a light to those I come in contact with so they can know Him too.
4. Go on the occasional gospel team trip with my husband and share my testimony.
5. Let Him be my defender by not being defensive when wrongly attacked.
6. Sharing the blessings He has given to me.

2. How he is so careful of me, and so worried when I fall down or hurt myself!
3. When I see him studying God's word.
4. When I see him spend time with the kids and the grand kids.
5. His love for the outdoors and me being in it with him!

Loved this! Um, I think you like coffee. (Kona is the best!) So sorry your DH has one useless finger.

Now that's a plan... travelling the Mediterranean with your whole family. Excellent idea.

Hugs!

Thanks! I posted my 7 Randoms as soon as I saw you had tagged me!

What is flagging mobile homes? I live in a double-wide and I feel like I should know that! Ha Ha!

I loved your heart desires about Millie. I said a prayer that God would give you that desire of your heart!

I definitely related to Doug's love for the outdoors. My Hub is the same way. Aren't we blessed to be able to share that with our strong, Godly men?

Hygs and smooches,
Connie
