God Answers Prayers - A Musical Tag

Oh my.  I saw this post from my new friend, Lauri, and just had to do it!  It is a musical tag, and as she said, that's been floating around the blogging world in all its randomness.  I wasn't officially tagged by anyone, but it sounded like way too much fun to ignore.

So, here we are!  Hope you get a laugh!

1. Put your iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc. on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
4. Tag 20 friends. (Since this is an old tag this doesn’t really apply anymore, but if you’re reading this you’re absolutely welcome to steal it as well! Please do!) 5. Everyone tagged has to do the same thing.

If someone says "Are you okay?" you say… 
Laetatus Sum, Gradual in Mode 7 (Liber Usualis No. 560, GR 139) by Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos
Am I okay?  Evidently not...  I think that means "to be glad" or "to be of good cheer"...

What would best describe your personality? 
Peace Will Be Mine (with Wonderful Peace) by the Christ Fellowship Choir [Bigger Than Life]
Hmmm... Peaceful, I guess.

How would you describe yourself? 
Say Goodbye by Skillet
... O.o

What do you like in a guy/girl?

Okay.  I can do that! =]

I dunno, what's the motto with you?  Haha!  I know that song title sounds weird but it's a great song about the Lord's Supper.

What do your friends think of you?
Jesus Freak by Newsboys [Born Again]
Hopefully, everybody knows I'm a Jesus Freak!  

What do your parents think of you? 
Only You Can Save by Chris Sligh
Don't worry, my family, I can save you!!! Actually, this probably isn't me.  I've been known to run from a ladybug... Honest.

I think this is Simon...  He's one of our Holstein steers.
What do you think about very often? 
Cows by Sandra Boynton [Philadelphia Chickens]
*guffaws outrageously*  Well, I do live on a farm...

What is 2 + 2?

My best Friend is Jesus!

What do you think when you see the person you like? 
A Walk in the Woods by Martin O'Donnell  [Halo: Combat Evolved]
Don't ask.  I've never played Halo in all my years, but love the music!
As to my thoughts when I see the person I like... Well, I don't know, don't really have a "like."  But I'm pretty sure "a walk in the woods" wouldn't be first in my mind...

What will you do at your wedding? 
The Rose performed by Floyd Cramer
Erm.  I think playing the piano is out of the question.  The only thing in my piano knowledge is just a few notes to a tune about a frog...

What will they play at your funeral? 
Miracles by Newsboys [Born Again]
Will I come back to life?!?!?  But what if I don't want to?  I think I'd rather stay in heaven. 

What is your hobby/interest?

Jesus is my interest.  He is my Deliverer!  What else should interest me?

What is your biggest fear? 
Tropical Sand by Sandra Boynton [Rhinoceros Tap]
Oh, but no!  I want to go to the beach so bad!!  So, sand really wouldn't be my biggest fear.

What is your biggest secret? 
Wandering [Spirit Earth]
I wander?  But... "Not all who wander are lost!"

What makes you laugh? 
Swing Low by Brandon Heath
Not really.  That's a serious song... Good.  But serious.
I love to laugh!

What makes you cry? 
The Precious Blood by Sovereign Grace Music [Valley of Vision]
TT_TT  Yes, the Precious Blood that was shed for me.

Will you ever get married? 
Lift Your Eyes - A Creation Hymn (Part 1) by Lilyfields (CD bought at the Creation Museum!)

Seriously.  My ma is trying to set us up with a waiter at Crackerbarrell... (which is a restaurant, by the way)

What scares you the most?

Gesu Bambino by the Regency Singers and Orchestra [Noel]
Um.  That means "Baby Jesus," by the way.  

What will you name this post? 
God Answers Prayers by Answers in Genesis VBS [Kingdom Chronicles]
Well, He does!



But it seems I have a lot of explaining to do.  I didn't realize this post would reveal the contents of my music library... heheh... Not that I have anything in there to be ashamed of, no!  

For your information, dear readers, the songs by Sandra Boynton (Cows and Tropical Sand) are from a set of children's CDs that my Aunt J had for her kids.  The songs are so very humorous, and as I love to laugh, she lent them to me to copy to my computer.  She also happens to be the wife of Uncle K... Love 'em both!!!

My family and I are very musical, if you haven't guessed.  We love movie soundtracks! among other genres like classical, jazz, and contemporary Christian.  I'm actually surprised nothing from the Hobbit soundtrack popped up... Blunt the Knives would have made a great random answer for one of the questions!  Also, as mentioned above, I've NEVER played any of the Halo games... But I must say, the Opening Suite song is my favorite.

My sisters had to hear the answers to each question and so we got a huge laugh from this.  I hope my answers brought a smile to your face!  

Remember?  My purpose in life is to smile.  ^__^

Don't hesitate to copy the questions and try it yourself!  If you do, leave a comment so I can check it out!

Have fun!

  2. Go for it!! My family and I are still laughing =D

    Thanks for reading!

  3. I'm so glad you did this, it's way too much fun reading everyone's results. My favorite of yours was the fact that you want to be "Father Christmas" when you grow up. Ahahahahaha! Hilarious!

  4. I know! My sisters and I were cracking up the whole time!

  5. What do you want to be when you grow up, Sarah? Tahaha that was funny!

    I love that you have Sandra Boynton on your playlist. Her's are some of the funnest CDs! (I have them on my playlist.)

    Risa and Sam and I all did this and emailed it to each other a couple years ago, it is so hilarious and just plain fun!

    "My ma is trying to hook us up with a waiter at Crackerbarrell." Oh, my! Isn't that such a mom thing? They say they will be happy if you stay single, but any Christian guy they meet that is even remotely close to your age is a possible suitor! (Okay, that a bit of an exaggeration, but a funny truth.

  6. Yes your family is a musical family and a talented one too!

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
