My Letter of the Alphabet - "M"

Cathy introduced me to this meme. The idea is to list ten things I love beginning with an assigned letter. Cathy has assigned me "M":

MOM: I have a great one! She's been a wonderful role model and support to me in this journey of life. Her encouragement in my seminary studies means the world to me.

MARRIAGE: I am blessed with a patient, occasionally long-suffering husband AKA "BBS" or "Beloved Bearded Spouse". He's an introvert; I'm... not. He leans toward the mystical; I... don't. He's philosophical; I'm... not. We balance each other, challenge each other, and celebrate each other. Twenty years next April - I love you!

MOTHERHOOD: Not the same as MOM, mind you. What a gift my daughters are to me. I have learned more about God and about His character and attributes through the "job" of motherhood.

MUSIC: The main way that my heart spills over to God.

MUSING: The second way my soul finds its voice - which is why this blog is so active lately. Guess I've had a lot on my mind!

MARSHES: Especially the ones near our family beach place in South Carolina... Peace. Beauty. Quiet. God's voice. Love it!

MEOWS! from the feline children of the house! (they just reminded me! "Time for GRrrrrrrrrrrEENIES!")

MASTERS: I've started on my second one. TLOK (The Lord Only Knows) if I will finish it! But I am really loving my studies. As a friend said to me this week, "you are just meant to do this!" Well hurray!!

MIDDLE NAME: Growing up I hated it. As a young adult I just ignored it. When I got married, I decided to keep it. It reflects a great gift in my life: "Grace".

MY FATHER'S WORLD: But in this case, the MOUNTAINS: If I can't get to the beach to hear God's voice, I know I will hear it in the mountains. Of late, we have enjoyed the wilds of Dolly Sods, WV. Hawks. Wind. Rocks. Trees.

This was fun! Do you want to play? Let me know in the comments and I'll give you a letter to re-post on your blog. (I promise - no X's, Z's or Q's -- unless you want them!)


From our home to yours...

Deb

And THAT is a beautiful list... truly beautiful -- I agree on so many - I know of the beaches of which you speak as they are similar to the Georgia Beaches/coastland.

And.... the music... which is our way of praying twice.
