IT’S MY DAY OF BIRTH, GUYS!!!! I turn 37 today! It’s going to be a fantastic year! Since my 20’s, I’ve always felt like Papa has been telling me that 37 is going to be a special year, and I can’t wait to see what He has in store for me! To celebrate the big 3-7, I am going to post 37 pins that say something about me! At first, I thought this would be hard to find 37 things, but after I got going, I found that I was actually having to pick and choose to narrow it down!
After finding these pins that describe some of the many different parts of me, I have to say that I recommend everyone doing this on their birthday (maybe not pins, if you’re not on Pinterest, but just thinking of things that make you the amazing person you are!) I promise it will make you realize just how special and unique God made you and why He is head over heels crazy about YOU! So, without further ado, here are my 37 pins for my 37th birthday – here’s to my next 365 day journey around the sun!!! 🙂
1.) I am a HUGE lover of animals! Furry = friend in my book!
2.) I am extremely shy
3.) I do not handle conflict well AT ALL, and will go to HUGE lengths to avoid it!
4.) I am a BIG advocate of healing naturally – God made the body amazing, and it is fascinating how it can heal itself when taken care of properly!
5.) It is normal for me to sing what I am doing at least 4-5 times a day – not well, but I do burst out into song quite frequently!
6.) My cats are my best friends, and I have daily conversations with them – laugh all you want, but 9 times out of 10, they give me better advice than my friends of the human form! 😛
7.) I am a Christian, and I’m not shouting “I’ve been Saved”, I am saying that I get lost at times, and that’s why I chose this way.
8.) I am a child of the ONE TRUE KING! I don’t know how to say this, but my Dad is a pretty big deal. 😉
9.) I LOVE LOVE LOVE to cook!!! Almost as much as I love to eat!!!
10.) NEEDTOBREATHE is my favorite band!
11.) Phillipians 2:3 is my favorite bible verse
12.) Brennan Manning is my favorite author, and his book “Abba’s Child” is my favorite book.
13.) This is my all time favorite quote! Any good deed, any kindness – let me not delay! BEAUTIFUL!
14.) I speak fluent sarcasm…which sometimes gets me into trouble!
15.) I am a follower of Jesus!
16.) I LOVE to help people!
17.) I am a crazy cat lady, and I’m not afraid to admit it! MEOW!
18.) I am currently taking classes towards my PhD in mathematics. I am a total and complete math geek, and it holds a special place in my heart! ❤
19.) I have been running for almost 20 years now. I’ve raced 5K, 4 mile, 5 mile, 10K, 10 mile, half-marathon, 25K, marathon, 50K, and 50 miles races. I LOVE them all!
20.) I am a complete introvert.
21.) I am an ISFJ personality type.
22.) I LOVE to laugh at myself, and I find something that I do that is laughable every. single. day.
23.) For that matter, I LOVE to laugh in general. If somebody can make me laugh, they are my new best friend.
24.) My hubby and I only met face to face four times before getting married. We’ve been married 6 years now, and I am head over heels in love with him!
25.) I absolutely LOVE the rain! I will take rain over sunshine any day of the week!
26.) I love teaching math!
27.) I have misophonia. I’ve had it since middle school, but didn’t know what it was till after I graduated undergrad. So, if you ever wonder why I’m looking at you like I’m plotting your demise when you are chewing on something – it’s probably because I am!
28.) I am a complete night owl! I get most of my best work done late at night!
29.) I am an optimist. I can find good in any situation – to the point of being annoying.

32.) I also love playing the piano! I started taking lessons in elementary school, and still love it to this day!
33.) I am pro-life. To me, this does not just apply to unborn children. I am pro-life in terms of everybody. Everybody, no matter who they are, or what they’ve done in this life should be loved, and while I weep at the unfair destruction of the unborn, I also weep when anyone is unjustly taken from this earth.
34.) I ALWAYS root for the underdog – in every circumstance!
35.) I ran and won a 50 mile ultra marathon. I even got the course record, though it’s been beat since then! 😛
36.) I want to inspire people in any way I can.
37.) And lastly and most importantly – “My deepest awareness of myself is that I am deeply loved by Jesus Christ and I have done nothing to earn it or deserve it.” ~Brennan Manning
There’s some small, and some not so small, pieces of me! Birthdays are good for you! I’m no expert, but I’m pretty sure the more you have of them, the longer you live! 🙂
