Just for fun ...

My sweet friend Wafa' had these questions on her blog a couple weeks ago. I saved them to Gmail drafts to do when I was in the mood for something lighter than religious postings and such.  :)  By the way, I just finished No God but God and took a few notes on the final chapter which I'll try to type within the next day or so.  I really enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. I learned so much and the author presented the information in a way that was interesting and kept my attention.  I greatly appreciate all who have left feedback on my chapter notes. You enrich my study and understanding so - many thanks!

This was entertaining! I laughed out loud at you liking the idea of a treehouse but finding it hard to stay there for a week so settling for a bunker :o)

Suroor said...

This is so precious! I LOVED it.

Especially liked this - "in relationship with God by following Jesus though I stray a lot." This is just perfect!

Wafa' said...

I love the post so much, love to know more about you dear.
btw, there are another part where you can pick up the questions for another light post :)

Sarah, I know! Nothing like going from living in the trees to burrowing underground. Hehehe. I was hoping my bunker was high tech enough to stay there for a week with little problem. :D Glad you were entertained! :)

Suroor, thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it and especially THAT one. :D

Susanne said...

Wafa! Girl, I was a bit worried about you so it was special to see your name show up in my e-mailbox with this comment! :) Yes, I have another part from your blog to answer another time. See, I told you I might answer them one day. I just have them saved in drafts.

I laughed though when I read how much you love weddings! Hahahaha. You and me both. :)

And I love that you loved your name at the top of this post. See, I was missing you and you sensed that and found this post. Hehehehe.

Thanks for your comment!
