I was tagged by Summer
for this: I am His workmanship. I’ve never done one of these on my blog. So just for fun, here’s a little bit about how God made me:
A. Attached or Single? Attached

C. Cake or pie? A berry pie!
D. Day of choice? Saturday, cause my man’s home and we usually do something together as a family.

Q. Quotes? “Earth’s crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God; But only he who sees, takes off his shoes – The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.” -Elizabeth Barrett Browning
R. Reasons to smile? This could be a VERY long answer… I have many reasons to smile, I’m the most blessed woman on the planet! God loves me! He calls me His friend! I get to be changed into His image this side of heaven and when I get to heaven I’ll be made like Him and see Him face to face! And here reasons to smile fill my days: My husband wrestling with the kids on the floor. My son saying something about Jesus that only could be said with the faith of a child. The sunset Jesus painted just for me! 🙂
S. Season of choice? Spring… even here in the desert new life is seen in the spring!
T. Tag 2 people: Jennifer (Diary of 1)

Z. Which zoo animal is your favorite? Lions

Hey, I'm Sheila, glad you're here.
A little about me: I'm a 40-something woman, wife, mom, RN, soap maker and wannabe suburban homesteader. I think better when I write. I've kept a journal since I was 9 and started blogging over 10 years ago.
I'm introverted, but I love people. I'm curious but shy. I'm contemplative and easily distracted. I feel deeply and know numbness. I want to make things right and I'm learning to let go. I wax poetic sometimes and often don't know what to say. It's complicated.
It boggles me that I am Christ's and he is mine. I gaze into the heavens and the Heaven-Maker's words, remember the hard things, fight depression, and long for home and King.

What a fun A-Z tag!! I’ll get to this soon! I also love spring in the desert – it’s remarkable. 🙂
Great questions. LOVED getting to know these details about you.
I learned a lot about you from this meme. I’m not surprised you’re a journaller… you’re a prolific and thoughtful blogger. Roseburg, OR? We’re in WA!>:~D
