Sunshine On My Shoulder

I'm on a roll! Another blog award...from Gingi again....but who cares! I'm a winner! Haha!! (Somebody else please give me an award so I can nominate her back!)
 The Rules for the The Sunshine Award: 
-Proudly post your sunshiney new award
- Answer the 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you
- Nominate 11 wonderful bloggers
- Write 11 questions for them to answer
- Let the nominated blogger know you have nominated them
Gingi's questions for me:
1. Who’s your favorite actor? (Say Zac Efron. SAY IT!!) 
Sorry Gingi, I'm not even 100% sure who Zac Efron is. In all honesty, I don't have a very good memory when it comes to actor's names. I usually end up describing them as "that one guy from that one movie". 

2. What’s your favorite Disney movie?
Oh, this one's easy. Classic Disney movie: The Little Mermaid. I had the full bedroom set as a kid. Love it! Newer Disney (Pixar) movie: Monster's Inc./Monster's University. Such clever movies and Monster's University has such an uplifting an inspirational ending. 

3. Can you dance?
Heck yes!

4. Do you like wearing hats?
No, my ears are too far up on my head. It just doesn't look right.
What I feel like when I wear a hat.
5. Do you have any nicknames?
My parents call me Noodle cause I was super thin and gangly when I was younger. Josh calls me Poptart and I really like it. Makes me giggle like a little girl.

6. Does might make right?

7. What are your thoughts on body glitter?
Ummmm, I believe this is the first time I've "thought" about body glitter. Seems like something one would wear with a costume, maybe as a Twilight character. Haha!

8. Your deepest darkest fear?
As a Christian my biggest fear is loosing my relationship with God, but I know through scripture that can't happen, so it's pretty irrational. As a woman, my biggest fear is never being a mother. Again, pretty irrational, since the logical outcome of adoption is that we will eventually have children.

9. What makes you swoon?
This guy.

10. The most prominent truth in your life?
That the Creator of the universe loves me. Little old me. Mind blowing.

11. What are the lyrics to your favorite song?
"Farther Along"- Josh Garrels
Farther along we’ll know all about it
Farther along we’ll understand why
Cheer up my brothers, live in the sunshine
We’ll understand this, all by and by
Tempted and tried, I wondered why
The good man died, the bad man thrives
And Jesus cries because he loves em’ both
We’re all cast-aways in need of ropes
Hangin’ on by the last threads of our hope
In a house of mirrors full of smoke
Confusing illusions I’ve seen
Where did I go wrong, I sang along
To every chorus of the song
That the devil wrote like a piper at the gates
Leading mice and men down to their fates
But some will courageously escape
The seductive voice with a heart of faith
While walkin’ that line back home
So much more to life than we’ve been told
It’s full of beauty that will unfold
And shine like you struck gold my wayward son
That deadweight burden weighs a ton
Go down into the river and let it run
And wash away all the things you’ve done
Forgiveness alright

Still I get hard pressed on every side
Between the rock and a compromise
Like the truth and pack of lies fightin’ for my soul
And I’ve got no place left go
Cause I got changed by what I’ve been shown
More glory than the world has known
Keeps me ramblin’ on
Skipping like a calf loosed from its stall
I’m free to love once and for all
And even when I fall I’ll get back up
For the joy that overflows my cup
Heaven filled me with more than enough
Broke down my levee and my bluff
Let the flood wash me
And one day when the sky rolls back on us
Some rejoice and the others fuss
Cause every knee must bow and tongue confess
That the son of god is forever blessed
His is the kingdom, we’re the guests
So put your voice up to the test
Sing Lord, come soon
