Who I am

If someone asked, "Who are you?" what would you say? You would probably say your name, but then what?
I am Susan Hougelman.
I am a lover of God.
I am a servant to Jesus Christ.
I am a wife to Joseph Edward Hougelman.
I am a mother to Alexandra Nicole and Lauren Elizabeth Hougelman.
I am a restaurant owner of the Neshannock Creek Inn Restaurant in Volant, Pennsylvania.
I am a Church planter who is starting a new church in New Castle, Pa called UNION
I am a friend to Kim and Karen, Brenda and Scott, Beth and Rik, Emily, Valerie and Robin and Crystal and Doug.
I am a sister to Michael and Dianna, Alan and Amy.
I am an aunt to Nolan, Brady, Shane, Stephen, Brandon, Allison, Amanda, Victoria, and Wesley, Micheal, Joshua, Jonathan,Rheanna, Johanna, Faith and Jessie.
I am a woman who loves life and living, love and loving, laughter and laughing. I love to sing while I'm driving my car. I love to read my Bible early in the morning or late at night when it is quiet. I love creativity. I love art. I love people who are real and secure in who they are. I love those that are insecure too. I love babies and children. (especially mine : 0) ) I love the beach..just sitting in the sun watching the kids play in the ocean, and having the waves lap at my feet.. ahhhhhh I want to be there now!! I like the sun a lot! I like swimming and I love hottubs!
Oh.. I really love listening to music. I love movies, especially chick flicks, and dramas. I love to read, and read almost anything I can get my hands on. I usually have 2 or 3 books going at one time. I love doing sudoku puzzles! Joe and I are addicted to them. We are both competitive and have a competition who can get the puzzle done the fastest. (right now we are tied) I love romance. I love to be touched softly. My love language is definitely physical touch! I love food and love to eat it which has made me very overweight. I especially love Outback Steakhouse Steaks, loaded fries and salad with ranch. I love fresh made ice tea with lemon! : ( I don't love to exercise which has also contributed to me being very overweight. I don't like people who are dishonest. I don't like plastic people who are phony. I don't like when people say mean things about me or anybody else. I don't like people who are snobby, but Paul (in 1st Corinthians) said that is a "pride" thing.. and I guess he is right.. I don't like that the world is turning their face away from God. I don't like how marriages are ending and children are being mistreated. I love my husband. I love when he plays his guitar and sings. I love that he is so gentle and he is such a good husband to me. I love when my girls lay on my lap or cuddle up with me in my bed. That is one of the best feelings ever. I don't want them to ever stop cuddling with me. (it's that physical touch love language thing). I love my cat Sarah. I love when Joe and the girls and I sit around the dinner table or lay in my bed together and laugh! We laugh a lot! We all have a similar sense of humor and we can crack each other up! I love when Joe imitates people. He has an amazing ability to zone in on someone, and imitate them. Ally shares this ability too. It makes us laugh a lot.
I love nice people. I love people who love Jesus. I want everyone to get to know Jesus and love Him too. That sounds corny, I know, but it's true. If you know Him then you know what I'm talkin' about.. cuz he is THAT cool! He Rocks! He is the man! He is the King! Because of Him, I am.. who I am and that is who I am! So tell me...who are you?

March 14th, 2006

Wow! I just created a Blog birthday. March 14th, 2006 is the day that I was born into the blogosphere. *waving* Hey...Hello..Anybody here? Oh hi. It's you. You found me. I'm glad you did. I have so much to share with you. I want you to know me. I want you to know me from the inside. Blogging is like being turned inside out. It's being exposed. It's allowing yourself to become vulnerable.
Do you want to hear my thoughts and feelings? Do you want to know my lifesong? Well come on in then. You are about to embark on a journey. A journey of one human mind... I'm glad you're here. : )
