  2. Awwww… THANK YOU for thinking about me in this. I suppose I could answer your questions here …

    1) the purpose for my blog is to let people know how deeply the Lord loves them … no matter where there are (Even if they take the “Wings of the Dawn” … Psalm 139)

    2) My favorite aspect of fall is that it is my FAVORITE season. I love the rain … and actually prefer a rainy day over a sunny one. … I know, it’s weird 🙂

    3) What is refreshes my soul? Check answer number 2… a rainy day!!!!!

    4) I love to write at my dining room table. I have also set up a card-table in my bedroom by a big window… where I can see my garden.

    5) I sense the most joy … when I see my six kids at one table… playing a board game, just talking, or sharing a meal together. I have to mention the next best thing (since it’s so close to the first joy) … taking a walk with the Lord, just me and Jesus.

    1. Heidi, I love your answers! Fall is my favorite time of the year too. I grew up near the Pacific Ocean, so coastal weather feels like home. How wonderful that your family breaks bread together. And walking with Jesus truly is the greatest joy. Thanks for sharing with me 😀


  3. Congratulations Jacquie! It was a pleasure reading your answers. I have read the Bible all the way through twice. I started a third time one year, but fell off the boat in the month of April. But it’s ok, I believe in quality over quantity anyway. Lol.
