Ten for Tuesday

Have you thought about doing Ten on Tuesday?  I think you should!
  1. What is your favorite travel destination spot?
    Tropical.  Anywhere tropical.  Or anywhere historical.  I enjoy the mountains, but I don't like all the dirt and nature that comes with it.  Don't get me wrong, I love nature, I love God's creation.  I just don't like it all over me and my stuff.
  2. Cats vs. Dogs.
    Death to the cats!  I'm a dog person all the way.  And unfortunately, cats know that, that is why they feel it necessary to "spread their love" all over my front yard, on my car, even occasionally on my front door.  It's disgusting.  And I have a pellet gun loaded and ready to use.
  3. Do you believe in fate?
    Fate like luck?  No.  I believe in a God that has a plan for every single person.  I also don't believe in coincidences.  I believe that everything happens by and through the God of the Universe that has the power to make things happen, even the seemingly impossible.
  4. Do you believe in karma?
    No.
  5. Everyone has a unique laugh.  Do you like yours?
    I have a unique laugh, in fact, I hardly make any noise when I laugh.  You can see me laughing and my shoulders shaking, but you won't hear much noise.  Honestly, my sister is the same way.  Get us going and it's a silent room of laughing so hard you cry.
  6. Is love really all you need?
    The Great Commission is to love one another.  I don't think there is enough love in the world.  If there was I don't think we as a whole would have as many problems as we do.  The evening news would be full of kittens (death to cats!) being saved from trees, not reports of shootings or war.  In a perfect world God's love would be enough and we wouldn't feel the need to "earn" love from other sources.  It's a concept that I'm trying to work on, but it's hard.
  7. What's your take on the whole 2012 scare?
    What's the 2012 scare?  Yes, I'll be scared in 2012 because I'll be turning 32, which is closer to 40 than I am now.  That's scary!
  8. If you won a million dollars and had to give it all away, who would you give it to? (Family and friends not included.)
    Oh, good one!  I would give it to my church first and foremost.  I would give a portion of it to Compassion International.  I would give some of it to local organizations that are reach the community for Christ.  This is hard, there are so many good organizations out there that are biblical based and are sharing the love of Jesus and spreading the world.
  9. Do you believe in God/religion/the power of prayer?
    Yes.  I've seen the power of prayer in action, so it's hard not to believe in God and the power of prayer.  Do I believe in religion, like organized religion?  I agree with Chelsea and the word religion/religious.  "I'm a religious person" is just too vague to me.  It's like saying "I'm a republican/democrate" or "I'm a (insert horoscope sign here)." 
  10. What New Year’s Resolution do you always make but never keep?
    Exercise more.  I do fine with the "lose weight" ...until the holidays hit. I know I'd do better with the "lose weight" if "exercised more".  Stupid cyclical circle!

Yes ma'am. Cats love the ones who hate them. It's so annoying.
