I was tagged by Christine a couple days ago, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m just now getting around to posting it. And since I’m even more sick today with some bug (most likely just Laryngitis), this was the perfect little thing to post today so I don’t have to think too hard.
Four jobs I’ve had:
1. ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Department at my local Library
2. Accounts Payable Ã¢â‚¬â€œ all through college
3. Graphics Design for a missions organization Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I got burned out in less than two years.
4. Currently – Proposal Analyst for a Wellness Company Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I can barely explain itÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t ask.
Four places I’ve lived:
1. Muncie, IN
2. Marion, IN
3. Pine Valley, CA
4. Fishers, IN

For my third entry in the 2006 G.I.F.T. Challenge, I read The Christmas Candle, by Max Lucado. This was a touching, short story about faith and miracles. Every quarter of a century an angel visits a candle makerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s family, touching a certain candle and miracles happen.
While very short, this was a great little Christmas story that provides more meaning to the season than the usual stories. Max Lucado remains one of my favorite authors for his style of writing and the depth and insight he gives to everyday life.

I saw two Christmas movies this weekend. And IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be giving both reviews today, as IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be out tomorrow getting more tests done at the hospital. So here are two out of four of my entries for the 2006 G.I.F.T. Challenge.
The Holiday stars Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet as two women who have made bad choices in men and find themselves single right before Christmas. They decide to switch homes for the holiday (in L.A. and England), just to get away and be alone. Both women realize they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t necessarily want to be alone, but just want a change. This movie was incredibly heart-warming and funny. The double leading men, Jude Law and Jack Black, were wonderfully sweet in their roles as well. I found myself tearing up quite a few times throughout the movie. Though, that had a lot to do with an old man that Kate WinsletÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s character befriends.
This was a perfect, romantic, feel-good movie for the holidays.

I finished yet another drawing of my favorite X-Man, Angel. Though this is still my favorite one, I wanted to do something different. The piece to the left is done in prismacolor. A larger version can be seen here.
Colleen has presented a fun and meaningful contest. This week, for every good deed you post as a comment under this post, you’ll be entered in a drawing to win a Venator Survival Kit (see her post for more details) in honor of the countdown to the release of her new book, The Rest Falls Away! It’s more about doing good deeds and “paying it forward” than the reward though, right? Let’s see how many good deeds we can do for others this week, and in the spirit of the season!
