It's Friday's Feast again!

Feast One Hundred & Six

Tell about a toy you remember from your childhood.
For Christmas one year (I think I was 4) I got a doll with beautiful long, silky, black hair which could be washed. She came with her own shampoo, styling brush and mirror etc. I was so excited. When everyone went upstairs to fix breakfast I immediately took my new doll into the downstairs bathroom and proceeded to wash her lovely, long, silky black hair. Of course, I had no idea how I was supposed to do it since I couldn't read the instructions. And, no one in my family thought I would go IMMEDIATELY into the bathroom and try it without a little supervision. Well, she lost most of her hair. What was left was kinky, tufted hair that stood out about an inch or so from her head. I went running upstairs to show how WONDERFUL my doll looked after her first only hair washing episode. My mom, dad and sister looked aghast at the hideous thing, but to me, she was still beautiful and her mostly bald, somewhat kinky tufts still looked magnificent. I played with her for years!!! I guess beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. *grin*

If you could make one thing in the world absolutely free for everyone, what would it be?
Well, there is already something that is absolutely free for anyone and that is eternal life with Christ. He is the one who has provided it. So it isn't technically something that I can give but I can share the good news with any and all who are interested in knowing more.

If it was within my power to do so, I would make the world a democracy. At least have other countries out from under ruthless dictators who treat their citizens horribly.

Approximately how many times per day do you think about your significant other?
Oh my goodness! I think about him all the time. It's hard not to because he sleeps during the day and I don't want to wake him up unnecessarily. (I will wake him up for snakes on toilets emergencies.) I can't fathom life without him because he is everything to me! He makes me laugh and brings such joy into my life! (And, our 31st anniversary is coming up next week!)

Main Course
What is something you believe in 100%?
My favorite verse (well, one of my most favorite) in the Bible. It's the greatest assurance a person can ever have: "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us [me] from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 8:38-39).

Name one thing you have done this week that you would consider a "good deed."
I took my Mom to get her glasses adjusted and then we went to a sewing/craft store and I pushed her around in her wheelchair so she could look at all the new pretty things on display. Afterward we went out to eat together.

you really loved that doll! :) but i can relate in a crazy way I guess. I never played with dolls, but I just remember playing with stuff that weren't toys, like chairs, tables and i would love to play with them, making them pretend cars, trains, etc. I was such a crazy kid. lol

great feasting!

Wonderful feast indeed. Thank you for your invitation.
So you washed your dolls hair without hesitation. I agree: beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I enjoyed reading Romans 8 tonight.
Have a blessed day.


You served a great feast. I love it all the way down from your appetizer to your dessert.
Thanks for stopping by.

Great job on your feast. It is nice you still loved you doll even when she was a little thin on top.

Take care,

Rob said...

I chose Romans 8:38-39, too!
