This week we have some questions from Pamela Steiner once again.
I hope you enjoy them.
1. Let's pretend that it is 50 years into the future, and explorers have just discovered your house, "frozen in time" exactly as it is today. Everything is preserved, even the food, but of course no one has lived there for fifty years. What do you think would be their first reaction as they walk in the door of your house? "Wow, there is a lot of stuff in here!" Or possibly..."Orange? Who in the world paints their living room walls orange??"
2. What would the things left in your house tell the explorers about you? That we loved God, family, and our country. No doubt about that!
3. What kinds of books would they discover on your bookshelves or beside your chair/bed? Lots of Christian books, lots of Bibles, lots of Bible studies, lots of biographies, quite a few reference books, complete collections of my favorite authors (Janet Evanovich, James Rollins, Craig Johnson, and William Kent Krueger), plus stacks of a wide variety of books picked up at used book sales, thrift stores, and yard sales.
4. What things would they discover in your closets or cabinets that would make them wonder why on earth you were saving it? I don't think I have anything in my closets that falls into that category. Storage space is valuable real estate in this house so I'm pretty selective. If it doesn't have major sentimental value or actually get used, I will get rid of it on one of my annual purges. My mom would be horrified, but I even donated my high school letter jacket after she kept it for 30 years or so before giving it to me.
Thanks Pam for more great questions!
