Coffee with meme & sugar

My wife tagged me for an eight question meme (rhymes with cream). She must want me to come out from beneath my blog rock that I've been hiding under. Here goes:

1)Do you have a favorite love song that makes you feel warm and fuzzy?
I have liked the song "Touch Of The Master's Hand" by Wayne Watson from the time I first heard it (20 some years ago). It still blesses me today.

2)Do you remember the first time you really felt God tugging at your heart? Where were you and how did it make you feel?
I had been invited a couple of times to a church by a girl at school in the ninth grade. Early in the eleventh grade, I was invited by my best friend. I didn't know that they were the same denomination. When I put 2 & 2 together, I figured that God was trying to tell me something. I haven't left.

3)Do you remember a particular time when someone encouraged or complimented you and it changed your whole attitude, giving you a better day?
I had just tracked down some missing parts for my supervisor. After I told him of their whereabouts, as I was leaving, I heard one of the other supervisors ask "Where can I find someone like that for me?" It made my day.

4)What is/was your very favorite subject in school and why?
I love history. You get a chance to see how things were done, and contemplate how things might now be if things were done differently.

5)What is your preference of a pet - dog, cat, fish, or none?
I am a dog person. I have had some very loyal dogs. Cats are too aloof.

6)Name one thing that you really like about your personality.
I can find humor in almost all things. It's one of my main coping mechanisms.

7)Name one thing that you would like to improve about yourself.
I would like to be able to feel comfortable around folks that I don't know well. People who don't know me well tell my wife that I'm really quiet. If you know me well, you know that's not really true.

8)Name one thing that you are very thankful for and can't imagine living without.
Faith. Now faith is the substance of hings hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1. Even when I can't feel God, I KNOW he is there.

I'm supposed to tag others. Since , other than my wife, I only have three readers on this blog, and Mrs. Lemon was tagged in the same post that tagged my wife, that leaves only Jewel & Mrs. Nurse Boy. If you decide to answer the questions, please leave me a comment so I can check out your answers.

And in reference to #6, you KNOW the guy is in a deep funk when he CAN'T find something to laugh about!

Even though I roll my eyes at times, I'm extremely grateful for your sense of humor.

On a totally unrelated subject, the capcha is "unquit".

A good sense of humor is invaluable in life and all that it hands us sometimes, Sir! Just so it isn't obnoxious humor, you know?
That is so neat about the compliment you received at work. That has happened to Ed more than once and he would talk about it for a long time afterward. A little encouragement surely goes a long way!
I'll try my best to do this meme and let you know when I do!! God Bless!!
