I've been tagged!

Okay, I've been tagged by Keisha and now I have to tell 7 things about myself:
1. I really want a street bike, not a big or fancy one, maybe just a shiny red one! My kids say "NO!"
2. I miss having babies like crazy and I don't think I will ever get beyond it, except maybe when I am 90! I want to adopt again, but am really scared to. what am I scared of? The wait for one, it is sooooo hard, and the small issue of $$$ (like God isn't big enough to provide, I know, I know).
3. I love to cook and would really love to have a gourmet kitchen.
4. I was a big tomboy when I was younger. I guess that is why I still hate to dress up.
5. I am obsessive compulsive about alot of things.....of course children( and Keith) have helped pull me out of some of that.
6. I would love to live in a big old farmhouse and only be 10 minutes from the city. (maybe even in a neighborhood)
7. I love, love the beach but hate, hate the feeling on my skin after I get out of the ocean....have to go right to the showers!
8. I hate eating at buffets where you share utensils with hundreds of other people and I WILL NOT go into a public restroom and then come back and finish my meal.
There, I am done! Hope you still love me after this.

Well, it has been a while since I have written, mainly because there are 3 of us who blog in this house, so it is hard to get my turn unless I work at midnight!
well, the news is out and it is official... Keith and I are starting a church plant in downtown Macon in September. See his blog for all the details and the logo He is working on. I am in shock and wondering "God what are you doing?" "How are you going to do this, and would you show us all the details now???" You know we really don't want to see it all because we might not move forward in these steps of faith. But as of now we are out there, feels like "mid-air" and we are holding our breath as we step out and go with God.
Honestly, I am scared to death and at the same time excited about the ride God is going to take us on. We really are not satisfied with "status quo" and even though I like to make my plans ahead of time, I like how God does it in the end. He is so much more fun and adventurous than I am on my own! So, help me... by praying for me to stay calm and not worry about tomorrow. I will not get out the tents and sleeping bags just yet, unless that is what God tells me to do (if we don't have a house this winter). ***So, just a side note: this is not public yet, we are waiting for the elders to get back with Keith about supporting this church plant or not, then it will be officially out there at that time.
