Liebster from Rebekah

Liebester Award. I have found how these can be ongoing, but I love all the different questions. So many of you already know about the Liebster because I posted about it and you can read the rules and such here. THANK YOU Rebekah for the nomination!

Before I answer the questions, I just want to say that, for real, if you haven't read Rebekah's blog, do it! If you want to read a true love story about a man and woman in this day and age, here you go. I used to not be the type of person who ever even thought about marriage or love or any of that "non sense," but now only because of the Lord's love in my life and His blessing me with people like Caleb (whom, I love so incredibly much) and Rebekah, who taught me the saying, "I love, love" which I honestly had to re-read the first time she text that to me (0: But I now get it and I love how she really does love, love. It's so cool because I have been reading so much about love lately and what it really means to love and truly love which we can't do apart from Christ in us. And if you could see Rebekah's face when she talks about love, I believe that is what God created love to be like. I mean, we are called to be the light of the world and go and tell people about Him and His love and also supposed to love them, unconditionally and without expectation. That's kind of what I think about when you mention the word "love" to Rebekah, everything about her lights up, that's what it's supposed to look like. I love her so much, I should probably be on my way to meet with her right now about Backyard Bible Club stuff, but I will get to that as soon as I am finished telling you how great she is, and she would probably be upset with me here if I told you she was just great and didn't mention that it is ONLY because Christ lives in her that she is great, and she is. Seriously, one of the most humble women of God I know. I love how in her post she says I challenge her, because really she challenges me. She has such a gentle and loving spirit and the Lord is always evident in her life and in how she carries herself. I am honored and blessed to call her a friend and sister in Christ. She is truly a blessing to me.

Rebekah's Questions Answered

1. What is your favorite place to shop and why?
My favorite place(s) to shop: Home Depot, because I love making things. Dollar Tree ummm.. everything's $1 and Belk, I love the people there and they always have a sale going on, plus, I like to just go talk. 

2. What is your favorite place to go for a bite? 
Abuelo's or any good sushi place

3. What is one thing the Lord has taught you lately? 
That I can't love people on my own. If I truly do love them, I will rely on His love to work through me, and not just try to "love" them the way I think I know how, because His ways are better and higher and greater and well He is Love, so that trumps Lacy's "love" 

4. Would you rather drink only water for the rest of your life or eat only salad? 
Can the salad have fish and lots of cheese in it always? If so, I choose salad. If not, water (can I use the little Snapple packets occasionally?)

5. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
That is such a hard question, In the next five years I see myself married to the most amazing man that I have ever met, who loves Jesus more than anything and being where ever God calls us to be, doing whatever God calls us to do, and praying that in everything we do, that God is getting all the glory.

11. How did you get in to blogging? 
I don't really remember how I even started my blog, I know I did it to share my testimony about how the Lord brought me out of utter darkness into His marvelous light, so that my old friends that I was living in such sin with could read the power that God has to change a life. But I don't know how I got to blogger or anything.
