FIVE WORDS

I found an interesting post when I stopped by Heart 2 Heart . She was doing a post based on five words she was given. She invited us to play along if we wanted and you know me, I love knowing about people so I asked her to send me my 5 words. If you too are interested, leave me a comment and your email address and I too will send you 5 random words. These are my 5 words......

1. Point......I am at the point in my life where I am comfortable with myself, my marriage, my kids, and my friends. For so many years, I struggled with being ENOUGH, being RIGHT, being BUSY ENOUGH, and finally I am at a Point that I am COMFORTABLE in my own skin. (almost all the time)

2. Inspirational.....So many people are inspirations to me.... single moms, soldiers, bloggers, friends that are seriously ill, kind people. I so much want to be an inspiration to others.

3. Guard......During this past year I have had to learn to guard my heart against toxic relationships in my life. For years, I allowed these relationships to keep me in a constant state of stress. In a teaching Beth Moore spoke a word that spoke to me about guarding our hearts. It has been freeing in so many ways.

4. Travel.....Easy one....I love it and Disney is my (our) favorite location. I am totally convinced that traveling teaches kids as much as school. I am planning a trip right now. And my favorite way to travel is with our entire family. ME and MY MAN, MY GIRL and her husband and 2 BOYS, MY SON and his wife and TWO BOYS. BLISS!!! And traveling by air is by far my most favorite way to go....

5. Image......This one almost stumped me.....There is my self image, my perceived image, my husbands image of me, my kids image of me, my friends image of me......I sure want all these to be good....but most of all I am thankful that I am made in the image of GOD!

Once again, if you want to participate, leave me a comment and your email and I will randomly select 5 words for you. What a great way to learn just a little bit more about each other and have fun sharing our lives. Just another way to know more about someones STORY.


Don't forget to visit the Christmas blog...the button is at the top of this one....all comments on it go into a drawing for a HUGE ORNAMENT and HOLIDAY GOODIES GIVEAWAY that I will draw for on OCTOBER 1st.....

Teresa,

WOW! You did a great job in making all of these words work for you. I love the image one the best and guard was a great piece of advice contained within, that not all relationships in our life are meant to be kept. Sometimes we can only walk away and lift them up in prayer.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I think you did an amazing job with your five words. From what you said, it sounds like you're in a very healthy place in your life right now.

Love this!

OK, you have me intrigued with "guard".....I struggle with guarding my heart/mind/self with toxic people and relationships. (read my Call Poison Control post if you ever get chance)

Can you hook a sista up with that Beth Moore word?

Thanks!!!!!

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a message! I have a MckLinky on the right side, if you want to post your Christmas giveaway there, too.

I noticed the Bible verse at the top of your blog. Jeremiah 29:11 is a special verse for me. It was the first memory verse I chose for our daughter the first week of homeschool! It has appeared in many different areas since then.

I'd love to participate in the Five Words.

Jess said...

I loved this and those were awesome words...

I want to join in...so whenever you get a chance and everyone is well, please send me five great words.

Thoroughly enjoyed this post. Especially the word image :)

E @ Scottsville said...

I've seen a couple of these "Five Words" Memes around the blogs lately and they're really neat.

Good job!

Terra said...

Thank you for sending me my very own Five Random Words.
I posted it today on my blog, with a link in my post to your blog here.
This is a fun little word game which even reveals a bit about us.

Deb said...

Love how you're so comfortable with who you are.

And where you are.

I love Heart to Heart. What a great idea!

If you send me five words, I'll try.

Sweet dreams.

Teresa,...my Grammy Girlfriend,
I loved your 5 words! Your answers were great! You are so creative and gifted.

I think you are the first tree decorator that I have met. I do good to get my tree up,..but when I am doing it I enjoy it. You have great ideas.

Sorry your grandkids have been sick. Hope you and your honey don't get it.

We are family people too as well as Disney lovers. We went with our middle daughter, Lynnette (Dancing Barefoot), and her husband Kyle and their 6 kids to Disneyland last year for vacation and this year to Branson again. It is fun. I wish our whole family could go at once, but with everyone there would be 18 of us,...and that is quite a crowd. Plus it wouldn't work out with everyone's schedules.

Whew!,...ok please send me my 5 words. jhoge1945@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for visiting my blog and for leaving nice comments.

Linda @ Truthful Tidbits

Loved your 5 words!!!

Linda said...

Ok Teresa, I did my post with my five words today, but I was wondering,...shouldn't there be a linky hook up so that all of us who participated can read each others? I mean my followers that participate will come up on my reading list, so I can read theirs, but of course I won't see your follwers lists and posts unless we happen to have mutual followers. (SMILE) Am I just not getting it? (I do that sometimes) tee hee

Carol said...

I am a huge Beth Moore fan and would really, really love to know what she has to say about toxic people. We'll get to listen to her three times in Memphis in two weeks at LPL. CANNOT WAIT! And you speak my heart about traveling with those children -- big and little.
