Follow Friday Four Fill-In
Ah, my Friday Four Fill-In! The one that makes me think! I missed this one last week too, since I was driving a good portion of the day. Join me in this fun brain twister. Head on over to Hilary's at Feeling Beachie.
1. I ___ wear___
I rarely wear makeup during the week. If I have to go somewhere important or meet someone I will, but otherwise I don't bother.
2. I have had a lot of ___
I have had a lot of childhood memories recalled to me recently. A friend invited me to join a Facebook group for people who grew up in the South Bronx. Pictures of areas I frequented as a child have taken me back to a place I'd long forgotten.
3. Public speaking makes me__________.
Public speaking makes me want to crawl under a rock and hide. I hate speaking in front of people and have them looking at me. Unless it's children. I can get in front of a group of kids and speak just fine. I guess in my mind they're less judgmental and more forgiving of mistakes.
4. My car always has_______because_______.
My car always has to be clean because I'm a neat freak. I don't like finding papers, or food containers, or anything else in my car that doesn't belong there.
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
