Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
It's time to join Patrice and Wendell on the front porch for our weekly chats. Stop on over at Everyday Ruralty and join us.
1. What's the last thing you baked?
I baked pork chops yesterday. As for sweets, I baked some brownies not too long ago. I'm looking forward to fall and less humidity so I can bake more often.
2. What's your favorite thing about fall?
Just about everything! I love the colors of fall, I love how the humidity subsides and the weather becomes more pleasant, I love pumpkins and apples and baking, I love Thanksgiving and Christmas shortly afterwards. It's my favorite season.
3. What's your favorite room in your home?
That's actually a tough question. I like my house. Quite a bit. If I had to pick a favorite, right now it would be the living room. My recliners are there, and they are my favorite chairs.
4. Who handles bill paying in your house?
That would be me. It's always been me. Having studied bookkeeping and enjoying organization, it was the logical choice.
5. Tell whatever you'd like to share with our chatting friends.
I'm very thankful that tropical storm Isaac is gone from South Florida, and although my yard was flooding for awhile, I'm thankful the waters have receded and my yard doesn't have a lake in it anymore. I'm thankful for everyone that said a prayer for our safety. It's nice to know we're loved :).
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
