List of Fours

I’ve been tagged (but I borrowed a slightly different version from another blog!).

Four jobs you have had in your life:

1. Bookkeeper and computers at the Crisis Pregnancy Center
2. Data-entry clerk for Oregon Dept of Transportation (driver’s licenses and tickets, too!)
3. Tax collector (gasoline taxes for Oregon)
4. Nuclear, Chemical, Biological Specialist – US Army

Four movies that made an impression in some way:

1. Fiddler on the Roof: the story of my husband’s ancestors
2. Harvest of Fire: an Amish shunning
3. Saint Maybe: forgiveness doesn’t mean there aren’t consequences
4. Rough Riders: a great way to learn history; why being rich and important is meaningless

Four places you have lived:

1. Scotland, twice briefly
2. Germany – 10 years
3. Oregon – most of my growing up years
4. Colorado Springs

Four TV shows you like to watch:
(So they’re all the DVD version really!)

1. Little House on the Prairie
2. Highway to Heaven
3. Road to Avonlea
4. I Love Lucy

Four places you have been on vacation:

1. Orlando, FL – highly recommend The Holy Land Experience and RC Sproul’s church
2. every place Jennifer W. has lived
3. Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and historic Virginia
4. Italy

Four websites you visit daily:

1. Friends’ Blogs
2. Earthlink
3. Google
4. Bank

Four of your favorite foods:

1. homemade healthy pizza
2. cottage cheese
3. cooked cabbage
4. turkey bacon

Four cars you have owned:

1. Toyota Tundra
2. Mercury Villager
3. Chrysler LeBaron
4. Jeep Cherokee

Four places you'd rather be right now:

1. In bed where I belong!
2. Should have been camping in Corpus this weekend, but sickness rules
3. In a good church
4. Fellowshiping with good friends

Four things your friends don't know about you:
(Hey! WYSIWYG) I don’t have many secrets, so you may already know these.

1. I used to always want to be a race car driver, until I decided that was irresponsible as a mom.
2. You would have to work VERY HARD to offend me these days.
3. I was a true "wallflower" growing up, almost never speaking to anyone, having very few friends. I didn't even begin to learn about being a friend until I taught a Bible study by Gary Smalley and John Trent about personalities about 10 years ago.
4. I memorized thousands of verses in the Bible BEFORE I became a Christian; but God's Word never returns to Him void, and He continually used those passages to bring my mind back to Him, and eventually my heart.

If you read this, you're tagged!

Awe...The question was, "4 things your friends DON'T know about you."

It ought to be 4 things that are true of you (not just ideas) and 4 things that you haven't shared before! (We know you can't see the E, and we know that you desire to stay out of the store.)

Do over! :)

Hence the WYSIWYG! I thought about this one for a week and this is the best I can come up with. I guess I could write about recently having a stroke and being sued this week, but I didn't want to sound like a complainer either!

Jen said...

Oh, BTW, Grafted Branch, how did like my job #2? I really had that job, too!

On second thought, I will think harder about baring my soul. In the meantime, just go fly a kite!

Revised 3/26

Thanks for the redo. Much better.

Thousands of verses -- really thousands?

An ought to post on what you learned about personalities during the study 10 years ago. That would be interesting reading.

Jen said...

Thanks! I try really hard not to exaggerate, but I figured "thousands" means two or more, and that surely fits. I was on a Bible Quiz team where I memorized most of the books of John and Acts. I also memorized 300 verses each year to go to summer camp. Then there were the weekly Sunday School verses, the Wednesday evening verses, the school verses - you get the point! I still have at least 2 of my Bibles with all those verses marked.
