  3. yes to all of these, though i do not (yet?) know the specific joy of pigs. and amen to the part where we are all these things in order to make much of God. He is THE 'I AM.'

  6. I am a lot of those things too (although only stuffed pigs at my house!). Congrats on defying the swinging bridge. They can be a little nerve-wracking at times.

  7. I can relate to reader, writer, and coffee drinker! I stopped in from the Faith Barista Jam and began reading through your blog. I'm sure I'll be back to soak in more. Blessings!

    I love your 'I ams'. Beautiful. And that bridge... you are so brave. No way I could have done that. Nope. :)

  18. OK, so weird, I just refreshed Em's page to stroll through Imperfect Prose and my eye caught her profile and I began wondering about my own I ams. Then I hopped over here and voila, you're talking about your I am list. So odd, but cool. I love stuff like that. And BTW you are so brave to walk that bridge. Hmmmm, not sure I could do that.
