Introduction I am an "ordinary Christian". In this world I may be, as all of God's children, extraordinary (Gen 1:27). In Christ I can do extraordinary things (Phil 4:13). But I like to identify myself as an ordinary Christian because I want to serve Christ according to the pleasure of His will, as His bondservant, as a slave, one owned by her Master. As such, every extraordinary thing I may do in Christ is standard fare, expected and a reasonable service of worship. With my view of Christ on my cross, I do not evaluate my service according to my own judgment. I do not choose to think of myself more highly than I ought, but rather I want to think of myself with sober judgment (Rom 12:3). Anything good I do is by the grace of Christ given me. I have no ability to measure what I do or don't do. I desire for my eye to be single and good. This is why I am an ordinary Christian. After all, Paul called himself "chief of sinners." Is it anything unreasonable to be known as an ordinary Christian?
Interests Knowing God, wife, mother, doctor, friend, knowing people, writing and reading, adventure, dieting, exercise, fitness, eating. Actually, I don't much "like" those final four items listed, but I like writing about them, and I am involved to some degree with them. Heck, I have "issues!" with them.
Favorite Movies Do I have a favorite movie? Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Star Wars, (that's my husband's fault). I want to buy Sound of Music and play it for the kids in the car's DVD player. .
Favorite Music Keith Green, Christian, Bruce Springstein, Fleetwood Mac, Santana, Blackeyed Peas (just "Get Started").
Favorite Books The Bible, Henry Blackaby, Oswald Chambers, Kay Arthur, memoirs, work-related stuff.
