This post brought to you by the letter "L"

It’s the alphabet game, blogging version. Here’s the rules: If you want to play, leave a comment on this post letting me know and I’ll assign you a letter. You write about ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter, and post it at your place. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain will continue.

So, my blog friend Laura at Three Times a Mom posted on the letter “M,” to which I commented so she assigned me the letter “L” (perhaps a reference to Lisa and Laura?). So, in no particular order, is a non-exhaustive list of ten “L‘s” I love…

1. The Lord. Just today I have been studying Luke 7:36-50, which relates the incident of the sinful woman who anoints Jesus’ feet. Jesus says that she has been forgiven much, therefore she loves much. I, too have been forgiven much (much!) and I too long to love the Lord Jesus with the same kind of abandon and sacrifice. I love Him, because He first loved me.

2. My Love. My man. My husband. We’ve been together a lot of years, but I love him more today than ever. He loves me too, though I’m certain it’s no easy task at times!

3. Lo-mein. Especially the combo dish at PF Chang’s. Yum.

4. Laughter. Mine, my children’s, my husband’s. Truly, joy-full laughter is one of God’s great gifts to us!

5. Lamentations 3:21-26. Some of my favorite promises of God…

But this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.”
The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him.
It is good that one should wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.

6. Linguini with grilled chicken and vegetables at my favorite local Greek/Italian/pizza restaurant.

7. LOST. Yes, I’m a LOST-ie. Totally addicted, all the while totally confused!

8. Lizzy, as in Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, my most favorite novel of all time, making her my favorite heroine of all time!

9. Les Miserables. As you know, I’m working my way through this (very L O N G) classic. I’m over 100 pages in and so far I’m liking it!

10. Laundry. You may be surprised to see laundry in my top ten “L” list of things I love and, you’re right, I don’t love it, not really. But I don’t mind it too much; something about folding clothes appeals to my love for all things methodical. Yes, I really am that weird!

Thanks, Laura, for blog filler for another day the opportunity to play! So, anyone else want to play along? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Looks Like Lots of fun! Send me a Letter and I’ll play along. Just don’t give me X…I don’t think I Love anything that starts with that!Thanks,Rachel Langston

  2. And one of my favorites that starts with L? Lisa Writes’ blog! Fun list. Although I am SOOOO not into Chinese food. Or Lost. But most of the others I’ll join you on!I’ve already done this a week or two ago – my letter was N. My wordy nerdiness enjoyed it!And speaking of “nerdy” my daughter needed help writing an algebra word problem for her project the other night and I thought “I bet Lisa would be able to do this!”

  3. Love your list! And no, you’re not so weird about laundry as I like it too… or maybe we’re just both weird! The appeal for me is the opportunity to watch TV guilt-free while I’m folding, since it’s still technically a chore.

  4. Sounds fun! But keep in mind . . . you know that clapping game, Picnic? You know, “I’m going on a picnic and I’m going to bring (insert something starting with the first letter of you own name here).”I ALWAYS lost because I couldn’t think of enough things beginning with a “j”juice. jam. jacks. jalapenos. see? be kind.

  5. I’ll have to add you to my Long List of Ladies who Live too far away! People who Love Laundry should share their gifts … that’s all I’m saying.As a matter of coincidence this is letter “L” week for Sam ;)I did the iPod meme finally, too!

  6. Linguini with grilled chicken and vegetables at my favorite local Greek/Italian/pizza restaurant.THat sounds delicious!I’d like to play if you’ll give me a letter!

  7. I’m such a LOSTie, too! Really enjoying this season so far. In fact, we had to call our cable company and get a DVR added to our package just so I could record LOST since it’s on during choir practice. I’m so pathetic….And I like laundry, also – not so much the doing of it, but the satisfaction of having it done and folded and I love the clean smell of freshly laundered clothes. Sometimes I’ll pause by the vent when I happen to be outside while the dryer is running because I just love that smell. I’m weird, I know it.

Join the conversation! I may not always reply directly but I do read and appreciate every comment.
