Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
It's nice to relax in the middle of the week with Patrice and Wendell at Everyday Ruralty for some chats on their porch. You can join them here.
1. What's the last thing that made you cry?
Unrepentance. It's painful to see people do what is wrong, knowing it is wrong, but showing no remorse for doing what's wrong.
2. Have you ever had any small pets, other than cats or dogs?
We used to have a fish tank with goldfish and angelfish. We had them for years.
3. Waffles or pancakes?
Oh my, that's a tough one! I love both! I totally love buttermilk pancakes, but I also love crispy, fluffy waffles with pecan syrup. Oh, I can't choose! Don't make me choose!
4. Do you like politics? We don't need to know who you want to vote for if you are in the US, facing the upcoming election- just asking if you find the whole thing interesting.
I don't enjoy politics at all. I firmly believe in the right to vote, and that every American citizen has an obligation to go to the polls and make their voice heard. But politics is nothing more than mudslinging, lies and deceit. It's empty promises made by selfish leaders who like to tickle the ears of the American people so we believe in them. There are decent politicians out there, but they are few and far between. It's very discouraging.
5. Please fill in the blanks: If only I could____________then___________.
If only I could reverse the hands of time, then my kids would be little again and I would take more time out to play with them.
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
