Encyclopedia of Your Ordinary Life - G

A few years ago I had the opportunity to complete this extraordinary scrapbook album designed by CathyZ and based on the book, Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life by Amy Rosenthal. While I still haven't read the book, I love the concept of this album - a random sampling of those ordinary facts about your life [my life.] The homework involves keeping a list, A to Z, of random memories for several weeks and then gathering photos [or not] to support these memories. Love it. The album is really very simple [a la Cathy Z] and easy to put together with only two square photos per page and two to four 'definitions.' Have I said I love this album? And I want to share some of my life with you so I've committed to do just that in 2009 [keep in mind this was completed during the summer of 2007.] I'm going backwards and today I present: G


A fun, relaxing evening of ‘girls only’ time. We’ve had as few as three, and as many as ten attend. Sometimes it’s dinner and a movie, other times, pedicures and coffee. This is always a wonderful time to catch up with friends I haven’t seen for a while and re-charge together. We always talk about doing it monthly, but with everyone’s schedules we usually only have time to get together quarterly.


My Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer and Friend through life. I can’t remember a time when God wasn’t real in my life. I do remember when He became my Personal Savior and Lord. During the week of Vacation Bible School when I was 7 - our teachers shared with us about God’s salvation through Jesus, His Son. That evening when I was sitting on my bunk bed and talking with Mama about it we prayed together and I ask Jesus to ‘come into my heart’ and be my Savior. Later when I was15 and at church youth camp I remember clearly submitting my life to His Lordship. I can’t imagine how anyone goes through life without the assurance that God gives me – not for a perfect life with no problems, but that He will ALWAYS be with me and give me His peace – peace that only HE can give. (John 14:27)


Vegetables, flowers, a healthy lawn and shrubs. Craig and I have always enjoyed nurturing something from a tiny seed and watching grow. We especially enjoy growing fresh veggies – tomatoes, basil, zucchini, and yellow squash, along with green peppers and banana peppers – yum –IE!
