Linking up with Kendra!
1. What’s for dinner?
Tonight it was a “we need to finish all the random food before we leave for the summer” kind of dinner! We made spaghetti with meat sauce and pudding for dessert. Yum! Having non-caf food is quite glorious around here, and I’m looking forward to being home late this week to have “real” food 🙂
2. What’s the last thing you borrowed from someone?
Hmmmm . . . good question. I honestly can’t remember the last time I borrowed something! Well, that’s boring. Maybe a dish sometime to cook.
3. What is your favorite prayer?
Many! Oh, there are so many beautiful prayers. But one of my favorites (which I discovered over spring break) is one Mother Teresa said everyday:
Help me to spread Your fragrance wherever I go. Flood my soul with Your spirit and life. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly, that my life may only be a radiance of Yours. Shine through me, and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Your presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me, but only Jesus! Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others. The light, of Jesus, will be all from You; none of it will be mine. It will be you, shining on others through me. Let me thus praise You the way You love best, by shining on those around me. Let me preach You without preaching, not by words but by my example, by the catching force of the sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to You.
4. What is the oldest thing in your house?
In my dorm room, it’s probably old diaries/journals I brought back to read after Christmas. Holy cow, they are quite interesting! They make me cringe sometimes (enter an apparent obsession with musicals), but it’s really neat to see how God’s been working for so many years to help me become who I am today.
5. What’s the best concert you ever attended?
Never having gone to a legit concert, let’s go with “What concert would you like to go to?”! I’d love to go see The Fray or Sugarland, and pretty much any country person. Sign me up!
6. Do you have a nickname?
Family ones, yes, but friends always call me Laura. Sometimes I’m Lala or now Lals or Pancake.
What about you? What are your answers?
