The most important things go on top, usually. Or they go where I put them.
I am a Christian-leaning Deist. Deism does not mean you don’t believe in God, or believe in a Clockmaker God that made everything and then went away. It means a person that looks at the universe and all the creations around themselves and can conclude that God MUST exist. I have run the gamut of religions and eventually realized I don’t NEED religion, because everything I ever wanted to know about God, Life, The Universe, and Everything, is right there before my eyes.
I believe in Jesus and the message that he came here to tell us: LOVE ONE ANOTHER. If you’re doing anything else, you’re doing it wrong. And that’s the truth, because LOVE is the greatest power in the entire universe. Try to tell me I’m wrong.
I love the great outdoors, art, reading, the occasional movie here and there, and sometimes politics.
I grew up in lovely Connecticut, but I’ve hated it basically my entire life (except for the nature there, which is beautiful). I now live in Florida, and I love it here. The only thing I miss about Up North is autumn. Unless the world suddenly flips over, I probably never will move back to New England. I don’t fit in up there.
I love jewelry and shiny things, but I rarely wear them for a variety of reasons. I also love hats and shoes, and I don’t have enough of either. I prefer to wear dresses or skirts, although I only have a few. For me, if a person can see my knees, my hem is too short.
I love bubble baths and painting my nails. The bane of my life is not having a good book to read while in the bath. I will read about pretty much anything, even if I disagree with the subject. The best way to know your enemy, and so on and so forth…
I love sweaters and hate to be cold. I can get cold if a warm breeze blows on me, so Florida is a good place for me. In fact, at the time I originally wrote this, it was a balmy 55 °F out, and my fingers were frozen.
I love to cook, especially baking sweet things. I’m pro at homemade french fries, and always looking for new recipes. I love to cook for people that appreciate me, and the effort I went through to make something. Those that don’t are on their own.
I am opinionated.
I used to think I was liberal-minded…but when I grew up I realized it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. I could be defined as conservative in values now. The reason for this change is because I have– now that I’m older and wiser– come to the realization that you cannot change absolute.
Truth is truth, whether you like it or not.
I believe traditional family roles are the best and only way to go, especially when there are children involved. I think feminism is garbage. I personally love suffrage, but I hate what the “feminist movement” has done to our nation, our families, and our children.
I refuse to emasculate my man, and I appreciate that he doesn’t try to make me a feminist or encourage that sort of misandrist behavior, and instead lets me be a lovely, feminine woman…with all that this loaded phrase implies.
I am a submissive and surrendered wife, and I love my man and everything about him. He is not perfect, but he is perfect FOR ME and TO ME…nor would I expect perfection from any human being. We’re not perfect, but together we make it work.
I get hugely emotional, weepy, and out of control sometimes. My husband is generally more fine with that than I am.
I am extremely sensitive, and even an implied criticism or feeling as though I’ve disappointed my loved ones is crushing to me. I need to work on not worrying endlessly about every little thing.
Like they say, “Let go and let God.”
I believe that nearly everyone has value and a purpose in this life, and that God loves you even if you don’t love him back.
Spirituality is very important to me.
Being a good person is, too. Not just paying lip service to it, but meaning it.
Oh yes. Most of the time, I cover my head. And I do it because I want to, because it feels right and feels like me, not because some book or some person told me to.
