Praise God from whom all blessings & struggles flow…..25 RANDOM THINGS ABOUT SHELL!


I got tagged on Facebook with this survey….it was actually kind of cool.  I posted it several weeks back and was exploring again today and ended up on the section where I posted it.  As I re-read what I had written I realized that some of my answers on a different day may have been somewhat different.  Simply because of the mood I chose for that day.  Get it "chose"? 
How is it that we can wake up one morning and smile into our day with not a care in the world and some days wake up and feel the weight of the world on our shoulders?  I mean, what happens between the time I close my eyelids to the time I set my feet upon the floor?  It kind of makes me wonder if the enemy is not standing over our beds at night whispering suggestions of despair and the guardian angel, sent to protect us, is fiercly battling for our minds as we slumber.  And then in the morning we perhaps choose the loudest whispering voice.  This is not factual, nor biblical, by any means, just a thought that wandered into my mind on my long commute to work one morning as I questioned why I went to bed in a good mood and woke up somewhat grouchy.  I do know that the bible does speak of spiritual warfare in Ephesians 6 but does that count when we are asleep, in my opinion, most definitely yes.
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

What does this have to do with 25 random things about me? 
Well perhaps absolutely nothing except that on any given day, at any given time I can 
C- H – O – O – S – E
to think what is true, honest, just, pure, lovely  and things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (taken from Philippians 4)

  1. I was just reminded of this verse just this morning: Delight yourself also in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 34:4My first thought was that I hadn\’t been doing a very good job of delighting myself in Him the past few days.Right now, after writing that last sentence, my thought is, \’Why should circumstances come between me and the praises of my God???\’Commit your way unto the Lord; trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass. Psalm 34:5Love you girl!Care for some fried chicken? LOLOLOL!!!

  2. Enjoyed the read! I am a firm believer that \’spiritual warfare\’ is ongoing…asleep or awake! Oh, is Carol serving up fried chicken?! (lol)Adrian

  3. hi shell, excellent blog, lots of thought provoking material, and yes I believe it can and does happen whilst we are asleep too. never get round to doing these tags, maybe in some ways I am too much of a private person, although I reveal more now on here than I have ever done. however do relate to many of your 25 items, I am a blonde, well sort of, by choice too. lol. and I have always wanted to play the piano, to mention just two, there are more. take care, nita.

  4. Thanks for not leaving me high and dry as the only person in our little blogland neighborhood who got bit by the bug! :)I actually didn\’t start voting until the last 12 before the wild card set. 2 of the people I voted for got in there. It\’s funny, too, but I almost voted for the 3rd one who got in but wanted to give the girl who got pulled in after they had to drop a contestant in the top 36. I thought she was really talented and wanted to prove the judges wrong, lol!

  5. I have a facebook too and I was tagged from many friends on this Random 25. I have been working on it for a month and I am up to 10. I do love your posts and this one too. I have always dreamed of playing the piano…someday. I hope you do too. Blessings!
