Five Things That Represent The Real Me

Recently, fellow blogger Tom, over at "Jesus Has Two Daddies" told about his daughter, who is a first grader, needing to take five things to school that told about her. Can we do the same as adults? What five things represent you? Be honest!

Here's mine:
1. My Debit Card: I use it all the time instead of carrying cash. It automatically comes out of my checking account immediately, therefore, I can keep a good running balance, and seldom make a mistake in that account.

2. My Wallet: I carry it because it has all of the "important stuff" in it. Plus my organ donor card.

3. My well-worn, King James Bible: Not that I am deeply religious, but that Bible represents my Christian walk since childhood. I learned verses from that Bible, and have them shaded in colored pencil. As far as I'm concerned, the Christmas Story still can only be told from the KJV.

4. A small family picture album. Contained within is all that represents what wonders I helped create in my lifetime. It represents accomplishments like no other.

5. Jeans: Any pair from the drawer represent comfort to me. Since retiring, I opt for comfort over style almost all the time. (Except, of course, when it's just plain tacky to go in jeans.)

Okay, now it's your turn. Let me know what 5 things best represent you, if you had to go to "show and tell."

Okay, you got me!! This time I get to steal an idea from you! I don't have the time right this minute, but I will do it later today.

Re the KJV and the Christmas story, you are absolutely correct! I have a small story about that I will have to write about too.

Now let me see....five things, hmmm....
