Matthew’s Questions ☀️🌻

1.    If I was invited to dinner at your home, what food would you cook? by the way I have to eat gluten free 🙂

Great news! I’m into gluten-free food too! With you as my special guest, your wish is my command. So I’ll order from any restaurant of your choice. (I don’t cook, haha!)

2.    What is your favorite place to unwind?

My mind. I love my rich inner world. It takes me to so many amazing places all the time.

3.    What is your favorite animal and why?

I love the eagle. It’s got amazing vision, strength, discipline, and perseverance. But above all, it’s fearless.

4.    Where would you like to go on your next vacation?

Would love to return to Europe with my hubby.

5.    Read a book or watch a movie?

Oh, I so love movie dates! It allows for greater romance and sharing of the viewing experience.

6.    If you could, would you like to travel in space?

Hmmm …. I never aspired to be an astronaut. I love admiring God’s awesome creation, and that definitely includes the universe, from a personally comfortable vantage point. Feet planted comfortably here on earth, haha!

7.    Beach or mountains and why?

Beach! I love the sound of the waves crashing to the shore. I love watching the sun kiss the horizon before it dozes off to sleep. And I don’t mind doing that with a wide-brimmed hat and a margarita, haha!

8.    What is your favorite music?

Hands down …. worship music! Totally my music. I love both the reflective melodies and lyrics …. and the upbeat rhythms and victorious messages.

9.    What is your favorite snack?

I love pastries in general. Although, I attempt to reach out for more healthy choices. Sliced apples, carrots, cucumbers would be my preference when I’m in my “healthy zone”.

10.    How do you like to celebrate your birthday?

I love to celebrate my special day with my family …. I’m not one for extravagant parties and fanfare. The more an occasion is closer to my heart, the more I love for it to be intimate.

11.    If Jesus knocked on your door to visit, what would you think?

Oh I would be most blessed. Beyond words. Candidly, I’m not sure if I would fall to my knees in reverent worship or embrace Him like a little girl. Not sure if I would verbalize all my praise and hallelujahs or if I would even be awestruck and speechless. One thing’s for sure, though. I would never want Him to leave.
