Got tagged

Tag, you're it!

I've been tagged by my Jennifer and here are the rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.
6. Let your tagger know when your entry is UP

It's kind of hard to think of 6 things right off hand...although I'm sure Kyle could give you a whole lot more than just 6. Well, lets see....

1. I can't stand to get in bed with a messy house. Drives Kyle nuts! I know the boys are going to get up the next day and pull of the same toys out, but I like to wake up to a clean house. And- they need to learn to pick up after themselves!

2. I pick things up with my toes. No kidding.. I have freakishly strong toes. It's too weird. Kyle calls me monkey toes. He laughs so hard at me because when we are playing around and he's tickling me, I can pinch him with my toes to make him stop.

3. I sweep my floors two or three times a day. I don't like dirty floors. I want to walk around bare foot with out stuff sticking to my feet. I also like my microwave, fridge, sink, and especially my bathrooms to always be clean. Quirky I know.

4. I have a bad habit of leaving cereal boxes open. But shhhh... don't tell Kyle I owned up to it. He's always giving me heck about it, and I tell him it's him. I think he might believe me. ;)

5. We have the same routine every night...eat dinner, clean the kitchen, play with the boys (sometimes Johnny will have school work), bath for the boys and then bed. We usually always have them in bed by 8:30. I love that habit! Kyle and I will sit on the couch together and watch the news or whatever TV show is out on box set.

6. I can't think of another one right now.. the boys are fighting and I have to go cook dinner.

I'm going to tag:

I was reading my bible tonight and came across forgiveness. We've actually been talking a lot about it in our Sunday school class, as well as ladies bible study.

It is VITAL that we forgive! I think in some way or another- we all have issues with this. But, if one can't forgive, he/she is worse than the one that needs to be forgiven. We always want people to forgive us but don't want to give it back. I'm sure it's just sin in our hearts that cloud our judgment. How can God forgive you of your sins if you can't forgive those who have sinned against you? It doesn't mean you have to let them keep doing it to you; keep them at a manageable distance if necessary. God won't even listen to your prayers; How scary to think that God won't even listen if you have this sin in your heart?!?!

God takes forgiveness very seriously, and it's expected. All he asks of us is to love and forgive. Jesus died on the cross to forgive us of our sins. We sin against God everyday, and still he forgives us; if we ask him. Even if it's the same sin over and over. No that doesn't mean you can go do the same thing on purpose just because he's going to forgive you...for you smarties. Haha He will punish you ten fold if that's the case...God help you then.

I was reading Matthew 18: 21-35 Go get your bible lazy heads.. that's too much for me to type. It's a really good story.

I want to be one after Gods own heart!!
