Know & Tell Friday(2/8/08)

To play along or read the answers of other bloggers stop over at To Know Him

Question 1
(In honor of my best fwend today.... she has been so ill :( How often do you get real sick? once or twice a year.. I get nasty head colds every so often that are a pain but really sick where I can't lift my head off the pillow sick Maybe once or twice a years.

Question 2
Do you usually send serious or humorous greeting cards? Why? I don't know.. depends on what mood I am in. I would say maybe 50/50 maybe a little more on the humorous side. Because I'm normally in a more humorous playful sort of mood.

Question 3
Are you a person who has a whole lot of acquaintances, or just a few very close friends? this question sounds like it is saying the same thing.. because most people with a lot of acquaintances have a few very close friends.. I say I fall into that also.. I have a lot of acquaintances some of which the more I get to know them I call friends and then I have a few very close friends also. I have a few cyber group of ladies who even though I haven't got to see all of them face to face in the real world I think of as some of my closet dearest friends also.. One group of them(22 of us) have been posting every day for the last 9 years this month.. we you chat that much about everything under the sun every day of the year you get to know each other really well.

Question 4
If you could cure a disease, or heal a sickness, which one would you choose? hummm I don't really know. I guess I would pick something which I think is a disease.. and that is a bad heart. Cancer popped into mind because my grandma fought battle after battle with cancer but she has since passed away, My MIL had breast cancer but she is doing well now.. But my Grandpa has all sort of heart problems and more stints then I can count.. I"m not ready to say good bye to my grandpa any time soon so I pick something to do with his heart.

Bonus Questions
Question 5
What does "being spiritual" mean to you? This is going to sound weird but the whole being spiritual thing sort of has a negative sound to me. I guess it is just because there are so many people out there "being spiritual" or more like acting spiritual who wouldn't know anything about having a real relationship with Christ, yet acts as if they are so much better because they come across as being "spiritual". I pray I never comes across like that..
I guess to answer this question I would saying walking with Jesus, living your life for Him, seeking His will for your every day life.
1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Question 6
Imagine you were talking to someone who did not believe in God and Jesus... How would you explain to them that Jesus is Real (from your experiences in your own life)? Oh my list of experiences of how God has proved He is Real to me is countless.. There is the day he saved me, all the times he kept me from trouble, how he saved the lives of both of my sons during there births, How he healed my oldest when she was having seizures.. Just endless numbers of answered prayer and How He was with me and helped me grow though the lose of our baby, but I think the best example from our life experiences that people will see is just watching us day to day and hopefully they can see Christ in us. That is my goal but I know I cannot meet that goal on my own, I need God to meet that goal for me. The other thing is that God has to do the work in the other persons life so that they can see and know there is a God.
John 6: 63-65
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

Many of our answers were very similar today! So true that God has to open the heart of another person for them to receive His truth.
