15 Day Challenge: [Day 5]

Life of Love
[Day 5]: If you could have dinner with any five people, who would they be?

Wow...this is a hard one for me. I don't generally sit around wanting to be with people. You see, I'm an introvert, and as such, I get my energy from being alone. I'm NOT saying I don't find enjoyment when I'm with people or even that I have no desire to be with them. It is just a very occasional moment I find myself even wanting to be with someone outside my bubble. So I never really sit and wish for dinner with people. At least, that is how I take this prompt (I'm thinking not my immediate family, hubby, daughter...and even then sometimes I don't want dinner with the either :P). Anyway, I digress.

So...five people? Hmmmm...

Well for starters, I would honestly have to say Christ. This may seem very cliché or even "the right sunday school answer", but I honestly would enjoy an actual opportunity to have dinner at a table with him now. Not just wait to see him once I'm in heaven. To be able to converse with him, listen to him, probably get angry at him for correcting me, and then realize I can be a better person if I listen. Yes, he is definitely one of the five.

Then I would have to say Beth Moore. Doing several of her bible studies and even watching some of her video sessions for said studies have always made me want to get to know her better. She seems very fiery, full of passion for the Lord, and full of insight and wisdom. Not to mention she seems like she is a very sweet natured woman.

Ummmm...can a band count as 1? Because otherwise I would be over into six total...I'm going to cheat...well, actually, I'm going to not cheat and list another musician but had I been able to list a band as one it would have been NeedtoBreathe. A single musician though I would have...gah! Never mind. I can't just pick one musician. That just doesn't work for me because a gagillion of them pop into my head!

Moving on...

The last three are authors: Karen Kingsbury, J.R.R. Tolkien, and C.S. Lewis. Karen Kingsbury has written a series (well, it actually is 4 or 5 series tied together) I have followed almost since it's beginning. I think she might have been on the third book when I started and ever since I have found myself waiting for the next book to come out after I finish the most recent. In between, I found myself reading more of her works. A stand alone novel she wrote that I love is Like Dandelion Dust.

J.R.R. Tolkien. The man is a genius. And full of wisdom. Plus, talking with the man who wrote LOTR? Yes, thank you!

C. S. Lewis - I love everything of his I have read. Some of it non-fiction. Others fiction. And plus, J.R.R. Tolkien was an influence in his life. 

Buggers! THAT was not easy! Not at all!! Because even now, (now that we've got my mind juices flowing in that direction) I can think of people I left out. HAHA! Told you it wasn't because I don't like people. It's merely because I don't sit around thinking about it.


  1. Wow! Great list! Beth Moore would definitely be someone worth meeting!

  2. Oh, C.S. Lewis is such a good one! Not that the others aren't :) I mean, having dinner with Jesus would be awesome too. I just imagine that being able to talk and discuss with C. S. Lewis would be amazing. And it would be pretty cool to have his pal Tolkien there too.

  3. I think having dinner with Jesus would be intimidating, even though he's loving and trusting.

    Have you heard of Warren Barfield? He's my favorite worship singer. Looooove him!
