Middle Name Meme

I've been tagged a few times with this meme, and I'm finally getting to do it.

So, here's the deal: What's in a name?

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.

2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don't have a middle name, use the one you would like to have had.

3. When you're tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.

4. At the end of your blog-post you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don't forget to send/leave them a comment telling them they'e tagged and to read your blog for the rules.

I'm somewhat fortunate in that my middle name contains only five letters.

A ~ Aspiring...there are many things that I aspire to do or be. Like get published. Own a home again. Help contribute to our family's income.

L ~ Laughter. I love laughter. Ever notice how it totally changes the whole mood of a room, or how much better you feel after a laugh? God's medicine... :-D

I ~ INQUISITIVE and INSPIRED to write! My inquisitiveness brings inspiration to write.

C ~ Christian. 'Nuff said. :-P

E ~ Encouraging. I hate to see people down or discouraged. When I do, I feel as if a piece of my heart is ripped out. This is one aspect of my personality that I pray only deepens and doesn't go away. Christ had a heart for the hurting...I want to minister His healing grace and mercy the way so many have done to me.

And just a note: I have never liked my middle name except for the small fact that I was named after my paternal grandmother, Alice Elizabeth (Ward) Gray who was (from what I hear--she died the day my older brother was born) an incredible and sweet woman. She immigrated to the US from Montreal. You can see one of her passport photos here. For her, I'm glad I have the name.

  1. Hey, girl! I can't believe how long it's been since I've talked to you. I arrive in Dallas 9/15--hopefully we can find sometime either before or during the conference to sit down and chat. We have a lot to catch up on!
