Follow Friday Four Fill-In
Happy Friday! It doesn't feel like a Friday, though, thanks to school being cancelled on Monday on account of a little tropical storm that came by. Now we have another 3 day weekend to totally throw my internal calendar off. Let's focus on Friday right now, shall we? I'll do some Friday fill-ins, hosted by Hilary at Feeling Beachie.
This week’s statements:
1. I love to ___ but I hate to ___
I love to sing but I hate to have an audience. Let's face it, it's not encouraging to see their faces when folks hear me :P
2. __ makes a day better
Chocolate makes a day better. 'Nuf said.
3. They Didn’t Think I Could ______, But I Did
They didn't think I could make it on my own, but I did! And I do!
4. Warning: ______!
Warning: Hurricane season is not over! Don't sit back just because Isaac has come and gone. This is the busiest time of the year for the tropics.
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
