Monday Quiz About Me
Here's a fun way to start the week: a blog hop, hosted by Heather at Acting Balanced. Here's how it works. There's four questions to answer, then you have the option of adding a 5th question for your visitors to answer. Think you can manage it? Then hop on over!
1. Where do you go to get your news?
I get the news from the internet. I rarely turn on network television anymore, even for that.
2. What Olympic level skill do you have (e.g. One could be a world-class paper clip bender)?
Quick cleaning. I can get the entire house tidy enough for company (even mother-in-law clean) in less than an hour.
3. If I say the word, 'intellectual,' what do you think?
Someone whose conversations involve more than just the weather.
4. Who in your family do you look the most like?
I've been told I look like my mother and my late grandmother (mom's mom).
And my 5th question for the week is:
5. When does school start in your area?
School starts in 2 weeks here in South Florida. August 20 is the big day.
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
