What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Thanks for all the input, advice and encouragement. Weight loss is just one thing I am struggling with. Not that struggling is bad, there are just many things I am working on.

A big thing I need and want to do is memorize scripture. I want to know God's word. When I have questions, I want them to flow through my brain. So as I get ready to start my women's Bible Study, The Amazing Collection, I hope to take at least one verse, stick it on a card and put it on the fridge. I always find it neat that no matter what study I am doing, I find a verse that speaks to me no matter what's going on in my life.

Do you have a favorite verse or a life verse?

I have 2
The first one is the first long scripture I learned in Sunday School

Psalm 51 is the whole Psalm but its verse 10 that has been on my mind lately
10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

I Timothy 1:7
7For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

Funny huh? Here I complain about not being able to lose weight am reminded that God has given me discipline to do that. I get intimidated quite easily. You would not think that since I have such a big mouth but this verse has been with me since high school.

Your turn

I have so many - but one I have latched onto lately is Psalm 139:23-24.

"Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.

See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting."

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to prosper you not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.

This has always been my life verse.
