On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Saturday 9: My Life Would ...

I've never heard this song before.

1) This video begins with Ms. Clarkson on a swing. When you were young, did you prefer the swings or the slide?

It's hard to say. I loved both the swings and the slides. We would sit on a piece of waxed paper and go like lightning down the slide. But I think the swings were more fun because they lasted as long as you wanted to swing and our swings were grounded in cement so we could swing extremely high - it was thrilling! 

2) The first words are, "Guess this means you're sorry." Who is the last person to apologize to you?

I can't remember.

3) One of Kelly's earliest show business jobs was as an extra on Sabrina, The Teenage Witch. Do you believe in witches and warlocks?

No. But I do believe there are people who mess around with that kind of thing.

4) Mentioning witches and seeing Kelly with a lollipop reminds Sam ... She needs to pick up a 1 lb. bag of Dum Dums for Trick or Treaters. Have you done anything in preparation for Halloween? 

I don't like Halloween and there won't be any kind of decorations around our house for it, but I will buy candy about a week before Halloween for the little kiddos that come by.

My favorite trick or treaters!

This is Jack wearing one of my
pashmina shawls. It looks ghoulish.

One of my all time favorite pics of our grandsons.

5) Ms. Clarkson's advice to aspiring young singers is not to listen to advice. "Everyone gives you their 2¢ worth, but you have to follow your gut." Are you good at soliciting and following advice? Or do you tend to follow your gut?

I will listen to advice, but I will have to go with my gut feeling. Nobody knows all the details but me.

6) The year this song was popular, 2009, saw two major newspapers go out of business. Both the Seattle Post Intelligencer and Rocky Mountain News published their last editions. Do you still read a paper copy of your local newspaper?


7) In 2009, Mark Zuckerberg confirmed that Facebook tried to buy Twitter, but was rebuffed. Which social media site do you spend the most time on?

Facebook, occasionally Twitter.

8) In 2009, the Balmain Collection included a pair of jeans that retailed for $2,165. What's the most you would pay for denim pants?

I have paid $79 for Ralph Lauren jeans. That just doesn't seem right, but they fit ... and I have a hard time finding jeans that fit.

9) Random question: You buy a charity raffle ticket and tuck it into a friend's birthday card. Before you can give the card to her, the numbers are drawn and you realize the ticket is worth $500. Do you keep the ticket or give it to your friend, as planned?

I hope I would have sealed the envelope and leave it alone. But I don't think a charity raffle ticket is something I would give to a friend for a gift. That doesn't seem quite right either.

I hope everyone has a nice weekend and praying for those people along the coast who are suffering through Matthew's poundings and will not be having a nice weekend. May the Lord have mercy on and protect all those in its path.
