Sunflower Blogging Award

Thank you Bethany for nominating me for this award and sorry for posting it so late. I never ever participated before, but now have that mood to answer questions :)

Here are Bethany's questions and my answers:

1). If you could have an expenses-paid vacation to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I would love to go somewhere out of Europe. At the moment dreaming about Hawaii, because it is a beautiful country and I heard that the islanders are wonderful, polite and always willing to help.

2). What would you like to accomplish by the end of 2014?
By the end of the year I desperately want to finish reading all the books I've started.  I read multiple books because I am not always in the mood for the same type of genre. At the moment I am reading four books and am pretty sure that will finish them by the end of this year. 

3). If you had a million dollars, how would you use it?
I would help my family, friends and others which are in need and also I would go on a year vacation around the world. The list could continue of course, but I will stop dreaming :)))

4). What are your favorite foods?
My favourite foods are: 
* Soup with mushrooms and greens. 
* Pasta with prawns
* Baked potatoes 
* Sarmale (The vine leaves are stuffed with minced meat, rice and herbs). It is our tradition dish and I really don't know how to wrap sarmale.

5).  What are your favorite Bible verses?
My favourite Bible verses are:
"Be joyful always; pray continually; GIVE THANKS in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
"A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones." - Proverbs 14:13
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and for ever." - Hebrews 13:8
"It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect." - 2 Samuel 22:33

6). What is the best advice on life you can give in up to 3 sentences?
I would want to encourage all my friends and followers to not worry about future, you could dream or hope about something, but never worry. Someone said: "worrying too much is like praying for negative results." It is better to keep your mind motivated to find solutions or to create things you really want. 

7). If you could live in any time period, which would you choose?
It would have to be now.

8). What is your dream car and your dream home?
mmmmy dream house With a great view of the ocean and the beach, and it should be with 3 bedrooms, huge living room and two balconies.  

9). What languages can you speak?
I can speak: Romanian, Russian, English, Bulgarian and a bit of Spanish :) I would prefer to know French as well. Also one of my resolutions for this year was to learn German and at the moment I could say only few sentences in German. :)

10). Do you have a current occupation; if not, what would your dream job be?
Yes, I do. I am working with young children. Working with children is great fun. I love listening to their ideas and seeing the way their minds work.  

11). What cause(s) are you most opinionated about?

12). Is there any quality you think the Lord is growing in you right now (e.g., patience, love, trust)?
Love, trust, patience. 

I don't want to nominate anyone, but I will be happy if you post a comment with your answers. 

Keep yourself happy!!!
Much love
Liuba G


  1. Thank you for answering my questions, Liuba! I loved reading your answers!

    How wonderful that you get to work with children. I enjoy when I have the chance to teach chess at a camp in the summer, and recently I did some house cleaning for a lady with 9 (!) children ages 13 and under.

    You are very talented linguistically. I am impressed! Excellent advice on life, and your favorite verses are very precious.

    I think Hawaii would be a great spot for a vaction right now. Can I go with you? :D
