Five Words

Teresa over at Grammy Girlfriend posted a fun blog based off of five words that were sent to her by another blogger.  She then invited her readers to comment and ask her for five words for their own posts.  I thought this would be a fun blog to work on while I was in class so I asked her to send me five words.

I realize that I just outwardly admitted to blogging during class, but you try to stay awake through a lecture that's 25% in Sanskrit and you'll understand why I often blog during class.

Anyway, here are the five words that Teresa e-mailed me:

I have a love/hate relationship with the 13th chapter of 1 Corinthians, that contains the well-known phrase, "Love is Patient, Love is Kind."  There was a point early on in seminary that I thought I would never be able to prayerfully listen to or take part in a sermon or bible study on this passage.  I am so lucky, however, to have an awesome pastor that has opened my eyes this past year to Paul's ministry at work in this chapter.  You all should totally check out her blog.

I am a very curious person.  People fascinate me and I like to know what's going on in their lives.  I think that's why I love reading blogs so much.  They open a window into people's lives and allow me peek my head in and gain some new insights and ideas.

I am NOT a good test taker.  In fact, I often do an internal dance on the first day of school when I see the words, "There will be no final exam," written on the syllabus.  The dislike multiple choice tests and absolutely despise true/false - if I have a 50/50 chance at getting the right answer why do I always seem to choose the wrong one?

I am in the process of becoming an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ.  Discerning my call into the ministry is and has been a frustrating but awesome journey.  I've learned so much about who I am and who I want to be.  I am so blessed to have such an awesome support system that stands with me, through the best and worst of times.

I have a fear that I was put on earth to accomplish something that I won't end up finishing.  I think that's why I spend so much time discerning (okay, obsessing over) my call.  I really don't want to miss out on any opportunities in my ministry.

So there you have it!!  If you're interested in taking part in Five Words, leave me a comment with your e-mail address and I'll e-mail you words!!
