Monday Quiz About Me
Good morning, and Happy Monday to all! This is a blog hop that gives us 4 questions to answer with the option to add a 5th question of our own for visitors. I hope you'll join in at Acting Balanced.
1. What are your favorite pizza toppings?
Pepperoni and bacon for the meat portion, onions, green and red peppers for veggies.
2. What is the strangest name you've ever heard for a child?
This one my daughter told me about. It's spelled La-a. It's pronounced Ladasha. Instead of writing out the "dash" part, her mom just put a hyphen, expecting everyone to know what it meant.
3. What is the best vacation you've ever gone on?
We spent 2 weeks in Orlando with a super saver type pass that allowed us to go to Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Aquatica, SeaWorld and Wet and Wild parks for 14 days. It was a park hopper pass so we could go to all different parks in one day. I came back so tanned I hardly recognized myself.
4. What is your favorite quick summer meal?
Burgers on the grill. Or anything else on the grill.
And now for my question:
5. What is your favorite board game?
In my house, it's Apples to Apples.
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
