Tag Schmag

****Post edited ~ drastically. Please read the bottom paragraph.****

I’ve been tagged by Cheri. This is the first time I’ve ever “played” internet tag so this will could be fun. I am to list 7 random facts about myself. Let the record show that had this come from anyone else, I probably wouldn't have done it. I'm a stick in the mud like that.

1. I was captain of the PowderPuff (girls play, boys are cheerleaders) football teams my Junior and Senior year of highschool...and I didn't even know how to play football.

2. I'm scared of Holstein cows (and we even have one)...those ladies are HUGE!

3. I cried every single day while Mr. Visionary was away in Israel this Summer.

4. When we got married, I swore I would not be having children.

5. I don't know how to type.

6. I would give large quantities of cash for a good Reuben sandwich right now.

7. I'm a very good shot with a .45 caliber handgun. Just ask Mr. Raccoon who was after my chickens last year... well, I guess you can't ask him now.

Game of Blog Tag Rules:
*Link to the person that tagged you.
*Post the rules on your blog.
*Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog.
*Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
*Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Edited: I have removed the list of folks I tagged out of a sense of guilt. I cringe when these things are going around, and hate the time involved and the frivolousness of it all. (I told you I was a stick in the you know I wasn't joking.) I have removed the links so that no one feels pressured to actually do this thing. My apologies to the ladies I "tagged". Looking back at my day and seeing the amount of time I spent on this one post with no redeeming value makes me cringe. I have repented of ever doing it in the first place, and am making this public confession lest I ever feel tempted to do it again. You may wonder what the big deal is... it is... that I can't find anything in the Word that would justify my time spent in this activity...however innocent.

Ephesians 5:15-17

15See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

16Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

17Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of YHWH is.

The truth is, I really need to go back and read this post: Blogging Without Obligation.



  1. Oh Dear Julie, you know I'd do anything for you, but I've already done this meme - twice, and have run out of random/weird facts about myself. You can find them in my "About Us" category link on my right sidebar where you can read more about me than anyone ever really wants to know.

    Sorry I have been away from your place here for a while. I had some health issues in December and I'm still trying to catch up - with EVERYTHING. I see I have a lot of catching up to do.

  2. Way to go Julie--you old stick in the mud :) hehe!...I LOVE the edit...Thanks for sharing the interesting facts about yourself...

  3. I saw on your side bar that you are going to be taking/making more Kombuncha for the pregnancy.

    i just found out we are expecting again, and I am just curious what else you do when you are pregnant? As far a natural things? I am still REALLY learning in this I thought I'd ask....

    Any tips/ideas?

  4. Julie,
    I've had to be away from the computer more than usual the last few months so I just now read this post. I must say that I truly enjoyed getting a glimpse into the 'not so serious' side of you. I so appreciate your sense of duty to honor the Lord in everything you do. It comes through very clearly. But, please don't feel badly about having tagged people. Getting to know people is sometimes a multi-layered thing and tidbits of info are sometimes more revealing than anything else. :-) Anyway, I love your heart that shines through and I'm also glad you did this tag!
