Now, the second–Britt’s Q&A Linkup!!! See her post and how to link up [here]!

This week’s questions:

What is your favorite Bible verse?

I have two!

“Charm can be decieving, and beauty fades away, but the woman who honors the Lord deserves to be praised.” Proverbs 31:30

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything with prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4: 6-7

Can you speak a different language?

No, sadly. Well, not fluently. I’ve been learning Spanish my whole life, so I know a lot of that. And, of course, I know a few random words in French [bonjour! un, deux, trois, quatre, sank…] , Japanese, [konichiwa! arigato gosaimas! (I forget what it means, but that’s how its pronounced)] German [nein, sprechen se doitch?] and a little bit in ASL (american sign language) [signs “Hello!”] But Spanish I know most of. :)

If you could meet a few bloggers in real life who would they be?
Definitely Britt, and Godsgirlz1, and all of my blogger friends [I love you all!!!] Wouldn’t it be fun to get every single blogger friend together someday? :D I love you all, and I know I will meet you all in Heaven!!! [hope they have blogs in Heaven! LOL]
What is your favorite type of cookie?
Fresh out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookies. No doubt. [I hear you going “Mmmmmm……”
What is the one fruit of the spirit you have experienced most in your life?
Probably love. I am loved so much by my family and friends; God has blessed me with lots of love, and love is probably the best fruit of the spirit that I give away! I love to give away love to people; I guess that’s what God made me to do. :D
What are two colors you hate together?
Good one. Let’s see….hmmmm…..too hard to think of on the spot! :P
Do you have a favorite tree?
My favorite tree is a tree I can climb in!!! :P Other than that, I really like weeping willow trees; they are so pretty and enchanting. I’d love to go and just play around in the branches!
Great linkup, Britt! And again, if you would like to link up with this awesome girl and her awesome linkup, click the link at the top! :D
One more thing before I go….y’all have seen that button in the “notice” box of my sidebar?

Well, one of my newest blogger friends, Chasity, needs only 3 more followers to 50!! Can you believe that? And when we get to 50 she can have a giveaway! Isn’t that fantastic? So if you have a blogger account I say you click on the button, check out her blog, and maybe follow! [she’s such a wonderful blogger, she deserves it!]

And that’s it, folks! Thanks for bearing up with this long post! And be sure to join Teddy’s Cause Awareness Day, and the two linkups, and to check out Chasity!!!
