This past weekend, I had a sort of heart to heart with a granddaughter as she discussed her future. I treasure these times.
2. Champagne, chocolates, flowers...what's your Valentine pleasure? Any special plans for the day?
Champagne is not my thing at all, and I'm trying to stay away from the chocolates, but flowers always speak my love language. Dick knows that and brought me a beautiful bouquet of mixed roses yesterday. So we are celebrating all week.
3. Are you a hopeless romantic or do you fall more in the category of practical and pragmatic? What's a gesture you find romantic?
I am more in the later category - practical and pragmatic, but I do love and appreciate romance. Romantic gestures that speak to me are again on the practical side. But I do love a hand hold, a spontaneous hug, a spoken compliment or that special look and smile.
4. Do you ask a lot of questions in life or are you pretty content with what you already know?
Can it be both? I am fairly inquisitive and need details and a map of the future. I want a plan and wish God would let me in on what He has going for my life. That being said, I am content in all things knowing that He is my sovereign God and is in control of all things.
"I don't say this out of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content - whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me."
5. Your favorite power ballad?
There so many great old time power ballads, but Roberta Flack's version of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" has to be a real classic.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Who was better than Neil Diamond and "Hello Again" has to be at the top of the power ballad list.
So just relax and listen.
