12. What is on the walls of the room you are in? Pictures of my family. A quilt that I need to finish. A picture that Eric had painted for me.
13. Seen anything weird lately? A truck with a crane up on stilts. Obviously they needed a bit more height to get the sign up on the post. So, they lifted the truck!

14. What do you think of this quiz? I have fun doing these things but I hate sending them on to people

15. What is the last film or video you saw? Call Northside 777. A classic Alfred Hitchcock with Jimmy Stewart as the star. This was not a suspense filled movie at all but rather based on a true story of a man accused of something he did not do.
16. If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
Pay off our house. Pay off my parent's house. Buy a fixer upper home for our son. Build an apartment building where the needy could stay to get back on their feet. Eric would start his own business. Pay for the rest of Acres of Hope's new orphanage. Adopt a lot more kids.

25. What one book, besides the Bible, has changed your life?
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. I have never felt such hatred for my sin of wandering away from my Heavenly Father until I read this. I realized that as I was continually condemning the Israelites for walking away from their first love over and over again, I was doing the same thing.

25. 3-5 people who must also do this quiz on THEIR blog:
