1. If tomorrow were the last day you had to live, how would you spend your last hour? And with Whom?
I would definitely spend it with my family... not exactly sure doing what... honestly, if I knew it for real, we would probably spend it bawling and crying and hugging and talking. But if I didn't know, but did know, we'd probably just be together.

Answers - Part 3

Olivia asked:
1. Do you like to swim?
I like showers!? For real tho', I kinda swim like a rock... but yes, I love being in water.
2. What's your favorite Bible verse?
My life verse is 1Peter 2:9 "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you into darkness into his marvellous light."
3. What's your favorite book of the Bible?
Psalms
4. What year did you graduate in?
2005 -- and I love that cuz' '05 just sounds like such an even number of a year to graduate... yes, that's my small bit of nerdiness coming out!
5. What's you favorite outfit?
Uh... I love jean skirts and tee shirts... for dressing up, I love a good black skirt, adorable button-up dress shirt, a suit coat and beautiful high heel shoes!!
6. What's your favorite kind of shoe (e.i. heels, flip-flops, etc.)
Depends on my mood... in the summer, I LOVE flip-flops!! But I also really love high heels - even tho' I am 5'9"!
7. What was your favorite toy as a child?
Ok, this will date me... but Mom said I really liked "My Little Ponies" and also Tiff and I loved "Pet Shop". The real thing tho'... not these chunky-dunky junk they sell today. These were real-like little animals! Way fun! (I think I'm gonna go play now!!)
8. If you could meet anybody in the world now, who would it be and why?
My future husband... so I could know who he is! *smile* Elisabeth Elliot... her life-testimony has been such an influence in my life and it would be cool to sit and talk with her.
9. If you could meet anybody from the past, who would it be and why?
David... from the Bible that is. Or Esther. How where they able to stand up to the giants of their day?? How can that apply to my life today??
10. What's your favorite magazine?
This sounds really crazy, but I enjoy parenting magazines and also sometimes get a kick out of exercise magazines, tho' they are rather self condemning! Arghhh.
11. What's your favorite ice-cream flavor?
Bunny Tracks!!
12. What's your favorite song?
My fav fiddle song is Orange Blossom Special. My fav contemporary Christian song is, well, I have lots of favs but really adore "Blessed Be Your Name" by Tree63. My fav hymn is Amazing Grace... well, I guess I don't really have a fav, but I like it a lot!

Louise asked:
I have noted with amazement, that you and your siblings live life with passion. In everything... Why is that??
Ok, Lou... you win the prize for the most thought provoking question!! To be honest... I'm not really sure. Of course as you mention, a relationship with Christ is a huge thing for me! As you know, He is our reason for living. Otherwise, I would say that we Chmelars are very impulsive... doing everything that tops our little hairballs - within reason, of course. If we're in, we're all in. We're also very competetive! If we decide that we want to get into freestyle frisbee, we're gonna go to national championships. If we want to start cup-stacking, we work on tirelessly to break the world record for speed. If Tiff and I think that it would be cool to have our bedroom in our unfinished attic, we move clean, move and decorate in one day... only to realize that yeah, it is January and about fifty degrees up here. (We did make it one night tho'!! Down coats, piles of blankets and all!) If we're gonna hobby farm, we're getting every small animal there is... starting with fifty various foul!
So what am I saying?? I guess our life has always been an ever changing adventure... and we can't wait for each new stage. Our parents have taught us to find the fun in everything... even the hard things. We laugh a lot. (Our parents are great laughers!!)
Life is really too short to get caught up in the little things. Now, lest we sound more spiritual than we ever could be... we have our days. And when we have days, boy are they DAYS! We get mad at each other, we get discouraged, we cry and yell sometimes too! But no matter what happens, Mom has taught us something that I think is underrated. A discussion may have been a heated thunder-storm, but she always ends it with these words. "I am not your enemy, you are not my enemy!" I think that's important to remember when we have those days... cuz' everybody does. We just gotta hug, remind each other that we are still a family (and always will be), and keep marching on!
So tho' I feel we are unworthy of your kind words... I do have to say it's the bestest to be a Chmelar!!

* * *
Thanks everyone for your great questions! Keep asking cuz there's still 8 days before the contest is over. I'd love to hear from my more silent blog readers!! And be watching at the end of the week for a little hint on the prize!

THE Concert


I got my support letters sent out this week!  I am really excited to how God is going to provide for the needs of my trip through the help of friends and family.  I wanted to invite one and all to a concert fundraiser that we are having at our friends house May 3rd.  Our family will be singing along with several guest groups.  We will also be serving dessert, videos about Bring Me Hope and my trip last year, and of course have a free-will offering.  I know that lots of you aren't in driving distance... but I thought I would tell you for the fun of it.  If anyone is, come on over if you can!!

If you want to know anymore about the concert such at time, place etc or have any other questions about my trip, feel free to drop me an email!

Seriously, we girls all dream of our wedding, but more than any of this stuff , I want it to be a day that is a shining showcase to everyone of what an amazing God we serve. I want the glory to not be on me and my specialest guy, but on the One who brought us together!

Of course his relationship with God is a given...

And there's always the tall and handsome part, but if he is sold out for Jesus and lives that out, that's what I care about most!

Send your birthday greetings that are joyous, hilarious, encouraging, or 'make-nineteen-worth-it' to tiffyjoy@iowatelecom.net

Thanks!!

An Indian Tale

A Hug From God

As I was leaving the Gehman's this afternoon after work, Jackson opened the door just before I got into my car.
"Nicole! Did you get your purse?!" I held it up to show it was in my hands. "I love you to the Milky Way!!"
(You have to understand that we describe our love by how far it goes. Starting with loving you to the sun, then the moon, the stars, and ultimately, the Milky Way!)

So of course I hollared back, "I love you to the Milky Way too, Jackson!"

Thank you God for that hug from you today!

Washers & Worship


Today has been a crazy day... starting at five-thirty this morning. I had to run Dad and Chris to work in Iowa City, forty-five minutes away from home, come back, cat-nap for an hour, load up the kids and about six gargantous loads of laundry (our washer broke), go back to Iowa City, do some birthday shopping for Tiff, eat at McDonalds for lunch (double cheeseburgers and cold fries!), head back towards home, but not without stopping to pick up something from a friend's house, a half hour meeting with my friendly tax man, a bank deposit and a stop at the laundromat to stuff the commercial washers, all the while fighting the torrential downpour our great state is experiencing!

Ok, I think I just broke the world record for the longest run-on sentence, but that's kinda how it's been today. Now I am experiencing a nice quiet moment in the library, tho' that was a typical 'Chmelar-moment' too... I forgot my library card somewhere. Thankfully they took my license so I could use a computer. (yes, I am a real person!) *smile*

Why am I telling you all this??? Not for your sympathies... well, a little of that never hurts! As I was running around the house this morning trying to get everything in order before we left, the line from a song popped into my head, "This is a moment made for worshipping..." It hit me, even as I stuff those commercial washers with our fermenting clothes, I can worship God. He's put me here, today, alive, to worship Him. He is always worthy of that, no matter our circumstances! And He is amazingly in control!

So, soon I'll head back to the laundromat to dry those clothes and we'll have one big laundry-folding-party, but I'm alive and well. And that calls for a thought, song, or smile of worship to my amazing God!!

Beware.

Did you know that garden shed injuries are on the rise??  I hope this post will raise your awareness that you will not only watch out for yourself, but also tell everyone you love and care about!

Our friend, Brock Brenneman, had to get stitches on his head after a run in with a garden shed.  We though you might want to be on the lookout for theses things.  You also might also get some valuable info from our get-well letters to him posted below.
* * * 
Hey Brock,
I was so sorry to hear of your head's tragic meeting with the shed.  I guess it's a hard lesson to learn: you've really gotta watch out for those things jumping in your path.  Like people, branches, ceilings, and especially sheds... most often garden sheds!  Anyway, get healed soon and just remember to keep your chin up and your eyes OPEN!!  Good times -- Nicole
PS.  Don't feel bad about the situation, cuz "everybody makes mistakes, everybody has those days"!
* * * 
Brock,
Wow, I can't believe you hit your head on a garden shed.  I really hope you're feeling better.  Garden sheds can be kinda weird these days... you never know when they might turn on you.  Oh, a little advice, never trust a garden shed.  Never just walk up to one.  Always proceed with caution.  I'll give you some slack this time, 'everyone makes mistakes, everyone has those days'.  Just please don't let it happen again.  Sincerely though, get better.  Tiffany

The Night Walk... for your viewing pleasure.

I wanted you to see more of what I was sharing with you concerning the Night Walk; raising money to send the chinese orphans to camp this summer. Again, we need all the help we can get from people who care about fulfilling James 1:27 "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." Enjoy!

* * *

This first clip tells specifics about the Night Walk, how it got started, the purpose, and how to get involved.




This second video clip is footage from last year's walk in Falbrook, California. It's kinda fun to see what actually happens on a walk. The video quality is not the greatest, but it's still kinda fun.



If this has sparked your interest at all, please feel free to email me and ask for more info. misschmelar@iowatelecom.net

We are looking for people all over the US, all over the world for that matter, to help!

Thanks!!
