Starting the 10 Day You Challenge with ’10 Secrets’

So I thought I’d do the ’10 Day You Challenge’ as it seemed like a cutsie thing to do and you know me… I’m all about the cute
*coughs and searches frantically for a picture of a kitten… nope – not one!*

But seriously… 10 secrets? I don’t even know if I HAVE 10 secrets. OK I definitely have… more than… but not ones I can put on the world-wide web! Anyway, secrets are meant to be kept aren’t they? I mean if I tell you, then they’re not secret anymore…

My only comfort is that there are no secrets from God – he already knows this stuff 😉

1. Dancing
When I’m alone in the house I often put loud mad music on and dance around. I close the curtains of what ever room I am in – only then can I dance like there’s no one watching;
cos I’ve made sure there’s no one watching!

2. Lip Syncing
Years ago I was in a musical and one of the characters lost her voice on opening night – so I stood in the wings with a radio mic and sang her song – watching her carefully to make it look real. As Michael Caine would say…. not a lotta people know that!

3. Bold Baby sister
My brother was very annoying, so I used to go into his room and hide stuff, move stuff, break stuff  & my ‘pièce de résistance’…I used to turn his radio on but have the volume at zero so the batteries would waste and he wouldn’t know

4. Confession Time
Once I went in the wrong door of a confessional, then someone came in the right door and for a minute I pretended to be the priest, then I ran out the door and out of the church before I could get caught

5. Miss Nomer
My sister-in-law and I share the same name (well we did before I was married). I went for an interview once and half way through the guy let slip that he knew my brother and thought I was his wife… so I kept schtum. (I didn’t get it btw)

6. A third blog
For a good while I had a third blog under a pseudonym. I did it to give me the courage to say all the things that I didn’t have the courage to say here. Also to let me write without the pressure of certain people’s opinions rolling around my head – which were paralysing my writing. When my confidence grew, I slowly retreated from that blog and eventually shut it down.

7. Hiding
I once hid in a walk-in fridge to avoid an over-enthusiastic American missionary who wanted to pray with me

8. Biblical fail
In my 19 years of being a Bible-believing Christian, I have never read the Bible start to finish. I’ve read it all in fits and starts over the years, but I have never successfully completed a Bible reading plan

9. Jail bird
I have a real & terrible albeit irrational  (I hope) fear of false imprisonment – probably brought on by years of watching Prisoner Cell Block H and visiting an ex in prison. I can’t watch stuff about prisons now, never saw Shawshank and probably never will.

10. The biggest secret of all…
One of these isn’t true – it could even be this one!
I’m not telling you which one… it’s a secret :p

Psalm 44:21b …he knows the secrets of the heart
