6 Things About Me.

I am going to play tag today thanks to Susan at Lila's Journey. 6 Random things no one knows about me. This is harder than it sounds.

1. At 18 years of age I was the youngest store manager at the time for a large company called The Wherehouse, we sold video's, music and software.

2. When I moved out of my house at 17 years old a hairstylist asked if I would be willing to participate in a hair show. She cut off about 15 inches of hair and I had a platinum army cut with big bangs, think Flock of Seagulls. I loved it.

3. When I worked at the music store I was often given backstage passes, I have met Gene Simmons, Alice Cooper, Garth Brooks, Buck Owens,...too many people to list. I never got to meet Bono which of course would have been the ultimate person to meet in the music industry.

4. I have a love for sunglasses, especially funky ones.

5. I love to share my story about how God never left or forsook (weird word I know but I just looked it up and it is the past tense for forsake) me when I had on my Nike's or actually 3 " heels, and was running away from Him.

6. When I FINALLY turned back to God I told Him I would never leave Him again, that I would follow Him to the ends of the earth if that is where He would take me. I meant every word of it. Once you are in the light you never want to go back to the darkness again.

Those last two are maybe a bit more known about me, but they just need to be said, because without the running and turning I wouldn't be the person I am today. God can bring goodness from ALL things, even me. His exquisite Name be praised.
