A Peek Into Me

Marriage Monday has been on hiatus for the holidays, but we're back today with a challenge from e-Mom to let people in on the real us (as if this has ever been a problem for bloggers). We're supposed to finish the following sentences to reveal a peek into our heads. So sit back, friends, and find out everything you've never wanted to know about me. (Should I say I'm sorry?)

I am….. too easily lost in my head and emotions.

I want….. to do great things for God.

I have….. four children who have changed me for the better.

I wish….. I could succinctly explain to others how I spend my time.

I hate….. to watch or listen to people brush their teeth. Ew!

I miss….. the carefree days of childhood.

I fear….. losing my husband or children.

I feel….. wimpy and weak most of the time.

I hear….. blessed silence when working in my office and treasure it.

I smell….. almonds (cause I'm munching on them right now!).

I crave….. ice cream and chocolate.

I search….. for ways to see God.

I wonder….. if I'll ever accomplish the dreams in my heart.

I regret….. nothing. There are no mistakes. God uses all, even my bad choices, to teach me.

I love….. my husband. SO. VERY. MUCH. I hate to think of life without him.

I ache….. for those who suffer.

I care….. too much about what people think of me, but I'm working on it.

I always….. drink hot beverages while working on my computer.

I am not….. particularly gifted at anything, but can do an adequate job of a lot of things.

I believe….. God makes good out of everything.

I dance….. like a klutz, but find it very romantic.

I sing….. to connect with God.

I cry….. when I see God at work.

I don’t always….. keep my mouth in check. Boo.

I fight….. myself too much.

I write….. when I'm depressed or confused.

I never…. think what I've done is good enough.

I listen….. to others and enjoy it immensely.

I need….. lots of quiet time.

I am happy….. when I think about all God has done in my life.

Hopefully that wasn't too painful. If not, maybe you'd like to get to know some of the other Marriage Monday bloggers. You can read about them at Chrysalis.

Have a great day, friends!

Great list! If you ever get your wish, can you give me the answer? I would love to have such an explanation.

Constance said...

Gotta love a post that makes us feel vulnerable right? Thanks for sharing about you! I love how God wires all of us SO differently and yet how connected we can be through the love of Christ!

Alicia The Snowflake said...

I so get your point about never thinking that anything you do is good enough. Why are we are own worst critic?!?!? It's terrible! And I don't always keep my mouth in check either. I'm learning. But I still have a long way to go.

Blessings to you this Monday!

I have to say that if I were munching almonds I'd want to pair them with ice cream and chocolate too! ;)

Also, I don't get AT ALL your desire to "succinctly explain to others how you spend your time." That would be torture to me! haha!

Loved reading about your life and heart, Tami!

Your list is beautiful (and not painful at all)...I noticed my head nodding an many of your statements - they are true for me too.

Thank you for sharing a little more about you Tami. Happy to see you still blogging :)...trying to catch up with some of my blogging friends in 2012.

Love & peace,
<>< Iris

Thank you for giving us a peek at your heart Tami. I love how you say that you regret nothing because God uses even your mistakes to teach you...Amen!! I have a problem controlling my tongue for me!

TerriG said...

You're not the only one who doesn't keep his mouth in check. At least when we blog, we can proof read it, haha! Nice to meet you!

Bobbi said...

I like this one, "I sing….. to connect with God."

Denise said...

Such a nice list.

Mac an Rothaich said...

I agree with your view on mistakes, and my thoughts where very similar in that area. I also mentioned struggling with what people think. It is good to see it as an unhealthy thing and work on it as opposed to just giving into that kind of thing. Enjoyed your post!

e-Mom said...

Yes, watching people brush their teeth. Ew. LOL, I'm with you Tami!

You're a good friend to other women then, if you like to listen to them and enjoy it immensely. Yay for you!

(Maybe it's because I'm so visual, that sometimes I lose patience just listening. AHA, that explains it!)

You are doing and you will continue to do great things for God.

Hugs, e-Mom ღ

Tami, a girl after my own heart, craving chocolate! That was just one of the things we have in common. It was a joy to read your post.
