Retagged and a Humble Thank You

Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee was just too quick when I tagged her and before I could run away she re-tagged me! Sheesh, I'm going to have to be more on my toes around that girl! So I'm going keep playing under the guise that this may be expanding my vocabulary? Sound good? Okay here goes: 4 word meme. My words are as follows and I need to tell what they mean to me.

chicken: What I am when it comes to something like bungee jumping.

tranquility: Peaceful. No Agitation. When I close my eyes and imagine myself by a beautiful lake with the forest all around, birds chirping. A breeze so small it is not even moving the water. I'm just sitting on a huge rock outcropping over the lake and just watching God's creation and marvelling a what a wonderful artist and creator God is. And I'm just chatting with Him and Him with me. Yup, that is tranquil.

permanent: not changeable. Stays forever. Sorta like the ink marks I'm looking at in my wood table even as I'm typing this.

adjusting: What I am continually doing as I learn how to be a better follower of Jesus, a better wife and mom, a better friend, a better person on this earth.

There ya go, Linda. Good words. And I was seriously tempted to be real quick and tag you back but you were so exhausted from the last tag I figured I'd give you just a little rest. But be prepared because you never know when it's coming! Wahahaha! Anyway, I am going to tag, let's see, I know: Anybody who is a "lurker" here. C'mon, come out and play along. Let me know in the comments and I'll come and give you a visit.

Here are your words:


Okay now second order of business. I want to thank everybody for your very uplifting, wonderful words you gave me for this post here. That was a very difficult thing for me to put up. I had been praying for a way to be more vulnerable and still maintain the level of privacy my hubby would like (he's a very private person), and I was also praying for confirmation that my site was being what I wanted it to be. And then I saw this meme at Barb's and at momrn2's and thought this might be a good way to accomplish the answer to those. Thank you all, I felt very humbled.

Now no one picked up the ball, and took the meme to their place. Cmon, ladies, someone pick it up and let me know or I might just have to start tagging you all. That's really not a threat or anything but I will ya know!

You did a great job with your four word meme, especially chicken (ME TOO for Pete's sake) and adjusting which is a constant for me, too.

I know what you mean about the one word meme. I was a little apprehensive about doing that one, too, but the results were very affirming for me. It did seem like your were making yourself very vulnerable, didn't it? I felt so relieved when I did another post and moved away from it. It felt like, "OK, please, I can't take any more." :-)

Everyone we communicate with should do that one. It's one of those "good for you" things.

I am tagged! Thank you!

Oh you are a consummate memer.I particularly liked the "breeze so small it is not even moving the water." And I think adjusting is what we spend every waking hour doing, keeping the equilibrium and maintaining some kind of composure. I'm so glad God doesn't expect perfection! And tag me any time.I'm lovin' this.

I liked this one too although I am glad not to be tagged for it yet. I am one of those people when you say I need to do something like this, I draw a blank.

You did a great job. I don't know how you guys can find so many profound things to say out of just 4 little words.
