The ***OFFICIAL*** Friday/Saturday Night Singles' Thread February 24th and 25th, 2006
Me ^ | February 24, 2006 | Me

Posted on 02/24/2006 5:11:41 PM PST by najida

Guess who's hosting this edition of the singles thread!?! Scary, ain't it folks.

Anyhow, in the process of cleaning out boxes, it came to me....the questions that we all ask ourselves as we uncover chunks of our long lost past.....

What WAS I thinking!?!

So, my questions to all of you are:

What hobby or interest did you have when you were younger that you still have a passion for?

Ok, now....is there something you used to do that you now think "I can't believe I used to like that!"

Same with music---
What was your favorite band/song in highschool, then early adulthood compared to now? (Those still in early adulthood have only 2 questions to answer. Or maybe just one ;))

Is there anything in your interests, hobbies or life that would surprise people who know you? (Nothing weird, just.....) And if it invovles being on wanted posters, you can skip the question :)

Kiss the Girls and one or two others have been made into movies. Morgan Freeman as Alex Cross. Movies are good also.

If you haven't read John Sandford's "Prey" series, do so. They are good. You should read them in order, though, as he develops his character over the series.

Have you ever heard of a Christian praise music group called MercyMe? They have this beautiful song called "I Can Only Imagine." Apparently it is a favorite of a lot of the troops in Iraq. If you get a chance, listen to it. I have always been just a rock fan, but I love this group and their music speaks to me. Oh, BTW, I have come back to church and attend regularly. I quit going after my husband died 5 years ago, but I have just started going again.

I'm in there with both of you, 100%. I love to travel some, enjoy my family, meet new people, but I am a homebody too. It would be great if there was a man who joined me in this life, but I WILL NOT SETTLE, again. Question is, where do you find this man with similar interest? I want a helpmate, a soulmate, a kindred soul, but where is he? Where do you find that special one in this life? Somebody please tell me! Till someone falls in my lap, I will enjoy my yard, my vacations and road trips, my little grandchildren, and keep looking for Mr. Right.

I am waiting for the RIGHT man, too. I had the right man in my late husband. I believe you can find love a second time around. I just want to make sure I don't get burned.

Meanwhile, I have my dog Harm. He is almost as big as I am, so he is good for hugs. :)

Yes, we are close in age. I am 56.

Yes, it breaks my heart to see all of those young men over there risking their lives and sacrificing their lives for peace and freedom. I admire them so much.

Have you ever heard of a Christian praise music group called MercyMe? They have this beautiful song called "I Can Only Imagine." Someone gave me this after Walt died and I have the words from it posted on my bathroom mirror. They also have a song called Homesick that gets me too.

I am not sure of that one. Is that one of MercyMe's? I just got turned onto them and only have one of their cd's plus the cd with just "I Can Only Imagine" on it that came in the little book of the same title.

You said it. Where are they? I am not settling either. Until God opens up the heavens and says: "Here is the one I have chosen for you!" I am not going to get involved. Also, my dog Harm has to approve. Until then, I am involved in the same activities you have mentioned.

Hi all.. getting in late.. taped the Olympics so will watch them later/tomorrow(and ff the commercials... okay the older couple ice skating & the ice falling on the car was cute.. but every 30 minutes in too much).

Najida thank you for opening the doors for everyone here. good opening questions.. FUN opening. I will scan the thread to see what is up,

I still like the same things I did as a youngster.. gardening, dancing, music, movies, playing outside, biking, water...I am thinking that somethings you truly never outgrow but for time constraints just don't do them. OR change the form of how you express your interest in them depending on who & what is going on in your life.

Okay, going to check out the thread, catch up on the news side, & the pile of email..

Hope you all have fun here tonight...

Oh, saw the movie The New World.. it was slow moving but great cinematography & interesting take on the colony at Jamestown & captain John Smith & Pocahontas... Music was haunting & the young girl playing P was outstanding! I think she is about 15 & from either new z or Australia. Think she is part aborigine

My dad died 6 1/2 years ago. My parents had been married for 54 years when he died. I had been married for 33 years (since I was 18) to my husband when he died.

I like some of the bands from the '70's and '80's. Imperials, Petra, Steve Taylor, Jerusalem, White heart, and Patti all come to mind (and memory). I recall entertaining a whole campsite in the late summer of '84, with that kind of stuff, with some of my stereo equipment(on a youth retreat).

Jars of Clay is a Christian band that was pretty popular around 1995. They had one fair hit called "Flood" on their debute album that was called "Jars of Clay". It was a very good song. They have about six albums, do a google search on Jars of Clay and you will quickly find the albums.

wow your hubby died young.. cancer, heart, accident (If I am not being too nosy & you don't mind sharing). Your parents had a long marriage for sure.. but we are never ready to let our parents go.. My dad has been gone since 1990 & I still miss him. He developed my love of the outdoors & was a constant supporter of me growing up in my academic & dancing endeavors..

A friend sent me this little book that MercyMe put out with the cd of just "I Can Only Imagine" in it. The book tells their story of how and why they wrote the song and stories of people whose lives were touched and even changed by it. You would love that book. I do. It has meant a lot to me.
