Good day t’ ye! Faith over at Stories by Firefly
so kindly tagged me and so I am honoured to do so! :)
Name: Raechel (Pronounced the same as ‘Rachel’)
Nicknames: Rae (not hard to guess! That’s partly why I was named Raechel with the extra e, so I could be called Rae :)), Ren, David/Jonathan (hehe), Lady Rae, and some more personal ones by my family that I am not quite willing to share. :D
Place of Birth: Here in MN
Best Friends: First Best Friend hmmm….I guess it would’ve been a girl who my Mum watched (she did a sort of daycare when I was little) and we were friends with.
Award: Haha, this picture (taken from Pinterest) just makes me laugh – it is the award I could’ve won in my childhood days. XD But otherwise, no, I don’t think I’ve won a ‘real’ award.
Sport: Softball. I don’t play sports anymore, but softball was my passion when I was younger.
Real Holiday: Okay, does this mean ‘vacation’ or like a celebrated holiday? Not that I’m really sure what the answer would be to either of those options…the one big “vacation” we went on when I was younger was going to Mt.Rushmore, but I hardly remember any of it because I was so little.
Concert: Go Fish. :)
Film: “Wives and Daughters”, “North and South”, “Persuasion”, and the How To Train Your Dragon movies. :)
TV Shows: “Downton Abbey” (we forward/skip some things), “Call the Midwife” (first three seasons at least, the fourth wasn’t quite as good because a certain reason), AFV, and I don’t know…I don’t watch a lot of TV shows. I like the HTTYD episodes :D
Color: Hot pink, army/forest/emerald green (lots of greens XD), and turquoise.
Song: Um…just about any of TobyMac’s or Tenth Avenue North. My favourite right now? I’m enjoying “It’s Not Over Yet” by For King and Country. I’m also enjoying some of the songs from the Big Band era – especially “In the Mood”. And I know there are others, but they’re not coming to mind right now.
Restaurant: Culver’s. And the Steak and Shake, except for the fact that we don’t have them in MN. Utterly sad thing that is.
Books: Too many!!!!! All books by Tessa Afshar and Chuck Black’s fiction books are always favourites, and I love the Ilyon Chronicles by Jaye L. Knight, The Wings of Glory series by Sarah Sundin, “Silk” by Linda Lee Chaikin, all of Alicia Ruggieri’s books, “Not Abandoned” by MacKenzie Morganthal, “Redeeming Love”, and so so so so many others!
Feeling: Umm… a little sore and tired. :)
Single or Taken: I’m single, but I love Faith’s answer of ‘reserved’ – waiting for God’s right guy for me. :)
Eating: Nothing. It’s morning and I haven’t eaten yet – I’m oil-pulling right now. :)
Watching: Just the computer as I type :D For a show…my family and I are going through season 6 of Downton Abbey again.
Wearing: My Pj’s. :) A long pink shirt with cats on it and turquoise pants with penguins on it. ^.^
Want children: Yes. My own and adopted children. :)
Want to be married: Yes – God willing, of course!
Careers in Mind: Missionary, Wife, Mom, writer on the side.
Where you want to live: In the future? With my hubby and children, provided I have that. Wherever that might be. :)
Do You Believe in…
God: Absolutely. He’s my everything.
Love at first sight: I don’t know…I believe love includes feelings, but it’s also a choice we make daily. I’m not saying love at first sight can’t happen, but there should be a bit more involved to find out if you really love someone before jumping into marriage right away.
Ghosts: I believe demons exist, but not the ghosts that everyone imagines persay.
Aliens: Well, I believe that we’re all aliens in the fact that we’re all strangers in the land, awaiting our home in Heaven. :) But otherwise, no.
Soul Mates: Hmm…I believe God has the right person picked out for us, but I don’t know that I would call it ‘soul mates’.
Kissing on the first date: No. It is my personal belief that kisses are very special, and I am saving my first kiss for my future husband.
Yourself: Well, Arthur says I must, so yes. ;)
So there we have it! Rather fun, huh? I tag anyone who wants to do it! :) Leave me a link in the comments to your post if you do it so I can read it :)
Thanks again Faith for tagging me!
