Tag – Doubles Version


So I have been “tagged” not once, but twice this week.

My good friend Cheryl over at In A Foreign Land has tagged me for a Middle Name Meme. And my new blog pal Joel over at CEC Worship has tagged me to blog about my favorite movie clip(s). So I thought I’d do this in 2 posts.

First The Middle Name Meme. There are a whole bunch of rules and such (which you can read at Cheryl’s blog), but basically here’s what it is. I am to take my middle name and use it as an acronym describing things about myself. So here I go.

Brent Stanley Hodge…

S – Selfish At the heart of things, I am a selfish person. My wife and kids would agree, but it is something that I work on everyday. I like feeling good. I like my time. I like my way. It is a daily reminder to me to rely on God’s greatness and never my own. Cause, honestly, I ain’t that great.

T – Tolerant Alright, you may think that goes against what I just wrote for S, but I do consider myself a patient person that appreciates cultures and ideas around me. I will let you know what I think – Mandy knows this :), but I have always felt that I am willing to listen and learn.

A – Artist I am at heart an artist. I spent many years not paying attention to this. I would “do” music and other things to be cool or noticed. About 10 years back, I worked for a great company and had a chance to manage a recording studio. In those years, God began stripping away my ideas of what “Christian” art was and began focusing me on what art was. I was no longer boxed in to create or appreciate art one way, I was able to create and appreciate art given to God honestly to worship Him. I am learning now to be disciplined to being artistic for Him

N – Nothing I’ve got nothing here. I can’t think of anything for N. So if you’ve got something, let me know.

L – Learning I am into about a 2 year process God has had me in of learning. Some things started happening in my heart about 2 years ago. God has spoken louder and clearer in my life than ever before. He is taking me down paths of reading and listening. He is revealing my heart to me and showing me what He wants to change. It has been draining but amazing.

E – Eager It is hard for me to sit still. I want to experience things, create things, try things out. I love to be doing something new and fresh. It is hard for me to sit and listen to concerts sometimes, cause after being inspired I want to run to my piano and play. This can lead to not being silent. God’s got me there and is teaching me this…it’s good to πŸ™‚

Y – Youthful Anyone who knows me understands that I can often be the biggest kid in the room. I love to have fun and enjoy the lives God has given us!

I’ll have part 2 of my “tagging” up tonight…
