Five Fact Friday

28 Jan

1. Last night I went to my first Zumba class. It’s like a mix of aerobics and Latin dance and it’s a lot of fun. I went by myself so it was a bit weird to start with as it was quick and I didn’t have a clue what I was doing, but by the end I was picking up some of the moves and felt like I was getting a good workout. At least I could do the salsa bits without too much problem!

2. My liquidiser has died. BOOOHOOOO! The jug has a crack in it and soup was flying everywhere so I need to try and find a replacement jug [and wash my jumper].

3. I heard today that people are panic buying chocolate due to a predicted chocolate drought. Apparently sustainable resources are running out due to political unrest in the Ivory Coast. I’m sure this is just media hype and things will be sorted out, but can you imagine not having chocolate available? I once tried to give up chocolate but it’s everywhere!

4. I’ve been researching spiritual gifts again because it’s surprising how many people think that they don’t have any. According to this test I have the gift of serving, giving, leadership and teaching. I think it’s hilarious that leadership and teaching have come up because I’m the most reluctant person to be in front of people. I much prefer to hide under my duvet, but it’s obvious too how God has used Josh and me and has equipped us. I love seeing how he works.

5. I am very excited to be participating in the Blog Bible Study from 1st Feb. We’re going to be going through the book ‘A Woman after God’s Own Heart’. There’s still chance to grab a book and join in. Check back after the 9th for our discussion on the first chapter.

Quick questions
1. Have you ever done Zumba?
2. Could you live without chocolate?
3. What are you spiritual gifts?

Happy Friday friends!

    I’ll have to take that test to see if my spiritual gifts have changed over the years (like my love language had). I’m assuming it’s teaching, hospitality (which is hard when your husband’s is ‘hermit’), and whatever ‘good listener/loyal friend’ falls under. 🙂 Chocolate: Can’t live w/o it, but I’m trying hard to live with less of it these days. Gotta loose the pounds! And I just recently saw a Zumba video on youtube and TONS of my friends are talking about it on Facebook, but I’ve never done it. Looks fun!

      I finally took the test – Exhortation and Mercy were my highest. Thanks for putting the test out there!

    No chocolate? No way! I couldn’t survive. Luckily, I have THREE (yes three) candy bowls currently stocked. I can survive for a bit.

    I haven’t taken the test for spiritual gifts in years…will have to do that. Sadly, i don’t even remember what they are…is encouragement one? b/c that’s me. i am an encourager.

    I have never done Zumba. Well, i caught the last 10 minutes of a class once & was very sad it was the last ten minutes! Will do it again sometime! I have no doubt that i’d love it! 🙂

    I suppose if there was truly a chocolate DROUGHT, i’d survive. But as long as it’s here, i gotta have some!

    I am also doing the BBS! 🙂
