I've been tagged!!!!!!!!!

I have been tagged by Natalie from Koinonia Community! My 'energetic' friend who keeps me in stitches about life.

These are the rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged you
2) Post the rules on your blog (this is what you are now reading)
3) Write 6 random things about yourself (see below)
4) Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them (This is only a game)
5) Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog
6) Let the tagger know when your entry is up

Here are 6 random things about me....

(1) I am a huge animal lover. We currently have two dogs, two cats, and three horses. At one time we nickname our place as "Stray Acres"!!! My husband tells everyone that he had to put his foot down...we have our last dog because of him!!! Babe....if your reading this....that's putting your foot down! HA! HA!

(2) I have OCD and a fear of fire. About to tell you more than most would share. I have this crazy routine that I do in the mornings. If I iron clothes before leaving for work, I check the iron at least three times before leaving. I check my curling iron at least three times (actually touching the outlet to ensure its not plugged up). I check the stove/oven before leaving the house (this is the freaky part - even when I haven't cooked in the morning) I know I'm a freak! I have issues! Ever since 1991 when I went to bed and my ex-husband just about burnt our house down cooking and then fell asleep. I'm paranoid big time!! Probably more info then you want to know...huh?

(3) I am a planner. I like my day to be scheduled and structured. I've gotten better over the years - I use to get really bent out of shape if my schedule was thrown off. Being married to my wonderful, loving husband (in case your reading babe!) has gotten me a little more relaxed. Five years ago we went to Florida to get married without telling our family. I had the trip planned from the day we were leaving to the day we came home. Hmm! Not with my hubby! He blew that before we even got to the Florida state line! He has helped me to relax and not be so anal!

(4) I am a mountain person. I like the beach but it's too hot. I like the mountains. I feel closer to nature. I like the waterfalls, cool fresh air, bubbling creeks, rustic homes. I'm about ready for a trip!

(5) I'm addicted to books. I love to read. I don't get to do it (for enjoyment)as much as I wish I could anymore. I have Christian books, self-help books, organization books, fiction, romance, etc. Whenever we build a house I want one room to be nothing but an office and library. I actually want wall to wall bookshelves filled with books.

(6) Last but not least.....one thing about me that I want everyone to know is that I am in love with Christ. I want every minute of the day fill with him. I am very blessed and I owe it all to him. In the past I've climbed the corporate ladder, tried to be all I can be, and do it all on my own.......I was miserable. The last five years of my life have been wonderful. I have a relationship with my Heavenly Father and my life is so full. Even when there is doubt, trouble, fear....as long as I turn it over to him, he will lift me above it all. No corporate ladder or even myself can do that. I am a princess to the King of Kings. I am in awe of Jesus Christ.

So now I can "tag" some more...........

(1) Cammy from The Tippy Toe Diet - she has encouraged me throughout my ups and downs with weight loss. I love reading her blog and seeing her success. She's an inspiration!

(2)Lelia Chealey from Write from the Heart - I don't get to participate fully online with her Bible studies but I love reading along with her and seeing her comments (okay, yeah, in a way I'm lurking!) I really tried to follow along but..... From her blog, I feel like she's been a friend forever. She makes you feel welcome and lets you see into her life.

(3) Holly from The Preachers Wife - I love reading about her life as a preacher's wife and viewing pics of her boys. I've watched podcast from her church and hope to visit in the future.

(4)Jenny from Standing at the waters edge - Here is another godly woman who through her blog lets you into her life. To see her struggles, her fears, and how God pulls her through it all.

(5)Erin from A New Song - Another fellow North Carolina girl whose loving God. I love to read about her everyday life and what's going on at her church.

(6) Lylah from The Lylah Blog - this is the newest blog that I stumbled across and I love it. I love the way she approaches everything from organizing/declutter, to being frugal, to tips on how to improve your listening skills, to gardening with a biblical viewpoint.

I hope you have a much fun as I do visiting these blogs. As my friend Nat (who started this with me!!!) said - "Get to know them. Encourage them. Learn some new stuff." I know you'll fall in love with them! Give them a day or two to write their random six things, but don't forget to check them out.

I love you even if you are mad-crazy! Of course it could be because I feel connected to you in that area.

Sherlyn, Don't feel bad...I am a little OCD myself. I'm right there with ya about the iron, the curling iron and the stove. Chase and Cabot get so irritated with me 'cause every time we leave to go somewhere, I have to run back in and do one last check on the stove and the coffee pot! (even if they haven't been used that day).

Also, I am an avid animal lover. I have 2 dogs and 1 cat. All to the dismay of my adoring husband. He could do without all of them, but since he loves me....well, you get the point. I would have more if he would let me. But,I won't do that to him.
I enjoyed reading your blog. I would like to put a link to it on mine if that is ok with you.
Love ya,
