Make up a word and give us its definition.
I always come back to my favorite of all, a verb: "to Rebo." Years ago, my best friend's little dog was named Rebo. He was in the backyard while people were throwing a baseball. He got beaned and subsequently passed "over the rainbow bridge," so to speak. It was horrifying for the family, and for me to hear it second-hand. Since then, if I'm afraid someone is going to get knocked out, I have said, "Watch out! You're gonna get Rebo'd!"
What is currently your favorite song?
Well this is going to sound weird. My first response would have probably been "Winter Wonderland" or "Sleigh Ride," but this week in church on Wednesday night, we sang the old song, "I'm Coming Back to the Heart of Worship, 'cause it's all about you, Jesus. I'm sorry for the thing I've made it, when it's all about you; it's all about you, Jesus." I choked up because that's how I was feeling about what we (I) do at Christmastime--we get off-focus so easily. It's all about Him.
What’s at the top of your Christmas wish list this year?
You know, I'm a person who loves to give and get (uh, we're supposed to be honst, right?) gifts, but this year, I have not even thought about what I'd like because I'm just too stressed out getting stuff done. ("It's all about you; it's all about you, Jesus!")
Name a scent that reminds you of someone special in your life.
Everyone has his/her own scent. My parents' house is unique. My kids love their "smell." It's a good smell, by the way. If we leave something there and then bring it home eventually, the kids sniff it and say, "Ah, it smells like Grandma's house."
Who is someone on television that you feel probably shouldn’t be, and why?
You mean if we didn't have that pesky old free speech thing? OK, bad TV evangelists, most music videos, The Man*Show, Hugh Hef-fner's Girlfriends, shock jocks, Imus, reality shows on VH1, etc. Why? The first gives a whole people group a bad name and offends many. The rest of the group proves why we need good evagelists, period.
