Five Question Friday
Happy Friday! I'm a happy camper today thanks to a great purchase that I'll post about later. Right now I'm gonna get my Five Question Friday post done. You can too, just hop on over to Mama M's at My Little Life.
1. What is your favorite fall family tradition?
One of the disadvantages of living in South Florida is that there isn't a big noticeable change from summer to fall, so fall family traditions aren't as common. There are pumpkin patches, one at a local church, but it's not something we do as a family. I decorate the house for fall, but that's about it.
2. If money weren't an issue, how many kids would you have?
A whole bunch! At least 6! I love my kids, I love playing with them, teaching them, caring for them, and I hated having to leave them with a babysitter so I could go to work to afford them. If I could have been a stay at home mom from day one, I'd have me a quiver full.
3. If you were to get a tattoo, what would it be and where would you put it?
The only way I would get a tattoo is if I were tied up and forced to get one. I am not a fan of tattoos. At all. I know for some people it's a form of art, but to me it's something I might get tired of later, or will look nasty once my skin wrinkles, so I don't see the beauty in it.
4. What condiment is a must in your house?
Mrs. Dash. I love that I can season with it as much as I want and not worry about salt content.
5. How did your spouse/fiance propose?
He didn't really propose. We just kind of got married because it was what was needed to be done. There's no sweet sappy story behind my marriage, unfortunately.
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
