Five Questions Friday

Yay, a blog hop!
Today's blog hope features 5 questions to answer this Friday.

So I invite everyone to join me and other bloggy-friends to share a little bit about yourself today.

1. What do you do when you are really upset to calm yourself down?
Honestly? Take my anti-anxiety medication and watch Monk. =)

2. Do you go all out for V-day or is it just another day?
It's just another day. I really dislike V-day, and I avoid doing anything V-day related for it.

3. Are you more or less productive when Hubs is away?

Definitely more productive when it comes to house cleaning. I'm not sure what it is. It's like the bear's out of the cave, so I can go to town on everything!

4. What is your favorite time of day and why?

3-4 PM. I think because I really like the way the sunlight looks around that time of day. The day is almost dwindling down, but there is still plenty of time to do something. Its just a magic hour for me. :)Also, the best nap time.

5. What is your go to karaoke song?
Pretty much anything, really. I love to sing. So, anything I know the lyrics to will work for me. :D

I'm definitely no Mozart.

Once in a while a dream will come along, which will give me some great idea for something. And by great, I mean - it goes into my "Inventions" journal. Some of my inventions are strange, some are actually pretty cool.

Sometimes a dream will come along, in which I would compose a song. Last night I had such a dream. It was a worship song, simple but really beautiful. I was even writing out the notes, but when I woke up I could only remember the first 3 notes. I tried playing them to jog my memory - nope, doesn't ring a bell.

I forgot the melody, the lyrics, everything! And it was so pretty. So frustrating.
You ever dream something really cool, and think to yourself - I GOTTA remember this when I wake up, and then you don't?

Help me get to Uganda!

This is always a bit awkward for me, I have to admit, but I feel that there is no shame to ask for help. As I have mentioned in one of my previous posts, I have made a decision to go on my first missions trip to Uganda. The trip is lead by The Saunders family, under the International Voice for the Orphan.

As this is my very first trip, I frankly, have no idea what entails in raising the money for it. But I would like to introduce my effort: Hand-crafted toys and ornaments for sale at my new Etsy store.

I love crafting, and I figured since I am fairly good at it (I hope!), I would like to use the skills I have to help me get to Uganda. So, if you are looking for a gift for someone, or just plain would like to help, please visit my Etsy shop. I am still adding new items, so please don't forget to keep looking. Hopefully you will find something that catches your eye, or calls your heart. Maybe there is a toy cookie that wants to be taken to your home.

If you would like something special made, please let me know. I am quite new to Etsy, so I'll be happy to try and create something for you especially. Please drop me and email at annajrb@gmail.com.

Onward to Uganda!

Elija's Hope : Adopt an orphan in prayer

I am SO excited today! Today is a big day, as Elija's Hope prayer ministry have officially been announced.

Elija's hope is a place, where an orphanage can submit individual children from all over the world, and individuals from all over the world (or churches, families, etc) will be matched to pray for those children.

How is this awesome? Well, for one, you can adopt a child in prayer (or more than one, or the whole orphanage), and not only intercede on their behalf, but also pray for their individual needs.

Will this make a difference? It has and will make a monumental difference. There are many who were touched and heart broken for the lost children of the world. But the need is so great, it feels like a great void that one individual cannot fill. Where to start? Who to help first?

But miracles often happen in small ways. Often - they start with a prayer. Like a ripple on the surface of the water, or a flicker of a flame. Then it grows and grows, spreading out in waves, until it swallows up the darkness. A committed, ongoing, unceasing prayer on behalf of someone who has no voice. So, even if you cannot adopt yourself, have no money to donate, cannot go visit them, you can still be their voice. And the best of all, you can ask the Creator himself on their behalf. You can love them, even from miles and miles away, and be in their lives.

I am excited: Elija's Hope is a place where you can impact individual lives, and as a bonus - learn a lot about your own heart. Please visit them.
