A Little About You, A Little About Me

Abraham Chronicles is a little over 6 weeks old (wow!), and I’m loving the small community that is beginning to build around this site. To keep things light today, I wanted to pose ten questions get to know you a little bit more! Feel free to answer any/all of them. I’ll comment first to get things started!

1. What is your name and where are you from?
2. If you could have one song on repeat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
3. Describe your perfect day.
4. What do you value most in other people?
5. What is your favorite TV show of all time? Who is your favorite character?
6. If you could vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go and who would you go with?
7.  What was your favorite toy as a child…. and now?
8. If you could give the world once piece of advice, what would it be?
9. If you could trade places with a Hollywood actor for a year, who would it be?
10. Describe yourself in three words.

Answer away! Looking forward to “getting to know you better”.

    4. Kindness.
    5. Probably the old B&W “Lassie” shows. Always liked those cheesy old shows.
    6. Went on safari in Africa with my husband. Can’t think of anything to top that, as I’d never even imagined it was something I’d ever do.

    Song: We Could Runaway by NeedtoBreathe
    Perfect day: Laying on the beach in Kailua, followed by Island Snow, late night ukulele jam session at the bonfire
    Favorite show: Friday Night Lights
    Vacay: I’ve been to so many places, and there is something to love about all of them. But, my next dream vacay is Australia/New Zealand with my whole extended family (I know, I’m crazy)
    Toy: Cash register…now, does my phone count?! :)
    Advice: in the words of Israel Houghton: Love God, Love People
    Hollywood: Can I go for singer instead, because I would pick Taylor Swift, who I love and who is currently touring with my all time favorite band, NeedtoBreate!

        correction: I forgot to mention that one of my all-time favorite songs is “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas now covered by Stryper. :) I also like Open Arms by Journey.

      Brandon, I love Like A Lion… we sing that with the students at our church. Great song!
      Funny story- back when Seacrest had a daytime talkshow (Seacrest Live? something like that) my wife, my dad and I got to sit in on a taping of his show. They directed us to where to sit… my wife and I got front row, my dad? Last seat on the top row. LOL.

    3. Having an encounter with the Lord that rocks me and keeps me on my face for hours. Spending time with the ones I love most and laughing until my stomach hurts. Eating food that is so good that I can’t stop until I have a food baby.

    3. A day with lots of time for dreaming, thinking, writing, and for blessing others.
    4. Sincerity
    5. I don’t know. I only just started watching TV again after a couple of decades without. The only two shows I watch are Bones, and House. It would be difficult for me to pick a favorite from those shows.
    6. I would go to Portugal, and take my beloved husband of almost 32 years with me. We were missionaries there for 11 years, and still feel homesick.
    7. As a child, I loved my bike, and my books. I still love my books (not exactly a toy, I suppose) and I’m getting reacquainted with my bike.
    8. Seek truth.
    9. I can’t think of anyone, Hollywood actor or other person with whom I would trade places.

    3. Sitting with a book and my best friend on a sea shore and enjoying the warm sunshine and laughter.
    4. Ability to laugh sincerely and loyalty
    5. Highlander. The character… two – Xena the Warrior Princess (for obvious reasons, besides she’s cool) and Duncan McLeod (for his courage, loyalty, and handsomeness)
    6. Never really taken a vacation… All my “vacations” were spent either in children’s camps or with Work&Witness teams, so I’d say a Work&Witness team somewhere in South America. I’d take my best friend Anne with me.
    7. I had a Texas Instruments’ computer which taught English. I loved playing with it and learning stuff. Now… puppets – animal ones – those are amazing for the kiddos in the Sunday School! :D (and just per se…)

    1. What is your name and where are you from? Sandy Collum Sandmeyer from Stratford, CT, but living in Pinellas Park, FL

    2. If you could have one song on repeat for the rest of your life, what would it be? That is such a hard one because I love music, listen to it all day long, and can’t live without it. Probably something praise and worship, but not too light.

    3. Describe your perfect day. Any day I can spend with my family and just being together is a wonderful day.

    4. What do you value most in other people? Their love and friendship.

    5. What is your favorite TV show of all time? Who is your favorite character? Love the old Looney Tunes. I could watch those over and over again.

    6. If you could vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go and who would you go with? My dream trip would be to Ireland with my husband, Scott. I have always wanted to see Ireland, the green, the ancient history, the romance.

    7. What was your favorite toy as a child…and now? My bear, Beary, was my favorite stuffed animal. I slept with him until I was 19 and then had to put him away because he was so tattered. Luckily, my husband didn’t get that tattered after 19 years, or did he?! Favorite toy now…the computer game!

    8. If you could give the world once piece of advice, what would it be? Communicate!

    9. If you could trade places with a Hollywood actor for a year, who would it be? I’m not much into Hollywood. I would rather trade places with a musician; maybe Amy Grant.

    10. Describe yourself in three words. Friend to all!

We spend the day with friends and family at my grandpa’s house; swimming in the pool and BBQing. Then, at night we have a bonfire and sing worship songs, and eat s’mores. That would be a fantastic day! :)
    4. Honesty

    Dude, I had no idea you’d only been at this thing for 6 weeks – that is crazy man! I think I know your formula though, not too hard to figure it out. You spend a lot of time on other people’s blogs, you take an interest in them and they, in turn, find you. It’s something I’ve tried to emulate too, not to get 100 comments or have a 1000 page views, but to develop friendships and community as you have here. Just wish I had more time to dedicate to it. ;) Keep it up bro, it’s working!
