Dear Blogger Friends who help me make a sweet aroma at “sweet aroma.”  Sorry I do not know the name of the “lifewithjesus” writer at

However, I have no hesitation in recommending that you visit her blog.  She is an encouraging, interactive blogger – the kind we bloggers can call a friend  She has nominated me for the Liebster Award.  I am a very poor candidate for awards because I only follow the directions I want to follow!  But I do like to be nominated; I do like to give recognition to the nominator; I do like to be associated with other blogger nominees; I do like to answer questions.  So thanks, “lifewithjesus.”  I hope you will meet some new friends.

So here are my answers to her questions:

  1. What is your favorite part about blogging?  I like writing posts, entering challenges, and making comments.  And I like reading other blogs.  That covers about everything.  I don’t like the mechanics of blogging such as how to make larger font, what about margins, and all that kind of stuff.

  2. What is your favorite item that you own & why?  That’s hard!  I don’t own anything that has much monetary value.  Lots of sentimental stuff, collections. memorabilia.  I do have my wedding dress hanging in my bedroom as a part of my decor there.  That’s special.  I have three copies of my doctoral manuscript called “To Know His Name.”  I guess that represents my “highest” achievement.

  3. What is your best life memory?  I guess this is where I should have inserted the part about my doctoral manuscript.  I absolutely loved the research and writing involved in putting it together.

  4. What is a hobby you enjoy doing (other than blogging)?  Don’t have many now that my “wheels” and “bank account” don’t let me get around like I used to.  I loved to haunt the second hand stores, old book stores, antique and collectible stores.

  5. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be & why?  I have no desire to travel except to go see relatives.  I have some in Mississippi whom I would love to visit again.  Also I have relatives who live in Denver, but I’m afraid to go there since I had the heart issue there.  I partially blame the altitude.   It might not have anything to do with it, but who thinks rationally about an encounter with death.

  6. What is one thing you would like God to do in your life in 2018?  I want to be victor over personal issues – food, exercise, sleep.  I have quit asking him to do it “for” me; I want discipline to do it “through” him.

  7. What is your favorite food?  Crackers and milk.  Surprised?  You thought chocolate, huh? Nope, it is those delicious Club Crackers that do me in!

  8. Do you have a job outside of blogging?  If so, what is it?  The job I retired from was public school teaching.

  9. What is your favorite thing to read?  I like research such as is necessary for teaching my Sunday School class.  I love Christian fiction also but don’t have time for it much anymore.

  10. What is one thing you are thankful for?  Life

  11. What was your first job?  I was “aide” for the agriculture teacher in high school, waitress in college, also home care for an invalid. But the first real job was as the secretary to the Supervisor of Services for the Blind, a Oklahoma State government job.  (Getting that job was a God blessing.  I’ll have to tell you sometime.)

So, there you are, Dear Bloggers.  If you wish to jump into the “Liebster Award” activity, consider yourself nominated and answer the question which were asked to me.  See more at  “lifewithjesus” and enjoy a browse through her blog.  Also visit some of the bloggers whom she has nominated.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

      I got it much too late in life to ever be called that, but it is legit. I have a Doctor of Ministry degree (DMin) from American Christian College and Seminary) accredited at that time but closed now. As many private colleges, lack of funds got them. Actually I think they joined ranks with some other groups. Got it when I was seventy-two, I think. It was a joy to do the manuscript. I started to explain that, but I’m pretty sure it is in my blog somewhere. I do think it helped me get my last job (proved I could still think and finish a project). I loved that job so it has helped me in that way. Otherwise, I forget. I am thinking of using excerpts from it on my blogs soon when I decide how to do so. I have chapters on “God Declares His Name,” “God Defends His Name,” and “God Honors His Name.” I want to remove footnoted items and inserts so that I am basically blogging my own thoughts, conclusions, etc. Do I have your blessing? 😀

      • heck yes!!!!! I love learning at you knee Oneta—and you know, I did wonder how you were so versed on the many names of Yahweh—–Jehovah…..and as to each and which apply….
        I knew you had to have a very deep and broad Biblical base for such….not many use those terms as much as they once did as many in the current culture consider such terms and words to be archaic or even too Jewish ( Hebrew)…..but a living God archaic?????… that’s an oxymoron….. 🙂
        Can’t wait to for class to begin 🙂
