Five Question Friday
Happy Friday! Actually I'm having trouble with this Friday because, for some reason, it feels like Saturday. I hate that feeling! I hope my mind adjusts soon. How can I enjoy Friday if I totally skip it?! Maybe doing my Five Question Friday post will help. Today Mama M is away on vacation (good for her!) so Kate over at Kate's Life is hosting. Hop on over and join in!
1} What do you call them- flip flops, sandals, thongs, or slippers?
In my neck of the woods, we call them flip-flops.
2} Are you a "my kids can do no wrong" kind of mom or a "Johnny punched you? Well what did you do to him first?!" kind of mom?
I love my kids, and I know what they are capable of, but I also know that kids are kids. So I question and get as many details as possible before passing judgment. I want to be fair, and that means none of the above statements would be right.
3} Would you confront a good friend that looked/looks down on your husband/significant other?
I would have trouble considering someone who looks down on my spouse a true friend. It's one thing to ask if I'm okay or if my friend feels I'm being treated badly to show concern. It's a whole other issue to look down on someone. We are all equal in the eyes of God.
4} Biggest pet peeve?
People who are talking and every 2 minutes ask, "Know what I'm saying?" because if I didn't know what you were saying I'd say it. And another thing, use proper grammar, would you? :P
5} What's your favorite take out meal?
Probably Little Caesar's pizza, because a pepperoni pizza costs $5, which means I can feed a crowd for little cash. :)
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
