If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

1.  Who is your favorite "Joe/Jo" and what can you tell us about him or her? My favorite Jo is my daughter.  Her middle name is Jo.
2.  Who were you named for and do you or did you know that person?  I have no idea who I was named for.  I really don't think I was named after anyone.
3.  Do you have a middle name and do you like it/use it? I have a middle name, but I rarely use it.  However, my mom did when she was hollering at me for something.  
4.  Have you ever named your car?  Tell us about it, please!  No my car is not named.
5.  Tell us the name of a fictional character you have never forgotten and why you remember it so well. Jerusha from Hawaii by James Michener.  Loved the book and movie and I loved her name.  Julie Andrews portrayed her in the movie.  For a long time, I wanted to name one of my kids that.  But by the time the girl's came I liked different names.
6.  Share something random with us about your week. I've really been enjoying my break from blogging and I'm not sure I'm back fully yet, but decided to post today.  I've really missed every one, but not so much the discipline of actually blogging regularly.   
Hope you are having a great week and thanks for visiting.
