Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
Oh my word! I just read the funniest, absolutely cutest blog hop post ever!! I encourage you to head on over to Everyday Rurality and read here so you can see what I mean. While you're there, I'm gonna go ahead and answer their blog hop questions so I can have some fun too!
1. What's your favorite room in your home?
That would be the family room, because it's where my family hangs out. We hang out in the living room too, so I like that room a lot. We eat and play board games in the dining room, so that's another cool room. Come to think of it, I pretty much like my whole house :).
2. If you could go anywhere on a vacation, all expense paid, where would it be?
I'd love to go to our nation's Capitol. There's so much to see and learn.
3. Were you a girl scout or in any similar program?
I wasn't. I didn't join clubs or anything in school. I was very shy.
4. What's your favorite frozen treat?
I love ice cream, but since I'm lactose intolerant it doesn't love me back :(. I have found a treat I like: pineapple coconut fruit bars. They are so delicious and refreshing! They're also the next best thing if you can't have ice cream.
5. Are you NASCAR or the elderly lady with the pillbox hat when you drive?
I am definitely NOT a NASCAR driver. Then again, I'm not the elderly lady either. I'm a cautious driver when I'm in the city because in South Florida folks drive like they own the expressways. There's too many cars and not enough roads. Once I'm out of South Florida I drive faster but still cautious since I have precious cargo in my car: one or more of my kids, and possibly our dog.
I'm first and foremost a Bible believing Christian. I'm a mother of 3, learning to deal with the changes God is doing in my life, learning to lean on Him and trust Him even when I don't understand, and learning to accept the changes He sees fit to accomplish His purpose in my life.
"I can't imagine anything more terrible than getting to the end of my life only to discover that God had so much more in mind for me - more freedom, more joy, more peace, more true effectiveness. And I had missed it all, simply because I refused to change." - Joanna Weaver, Having a Mary Spirit.
"In every change He faithful will remain." - Katharina von Schlegel
"Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory." - Warren Wiersbe
