Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
I'm kinda late getting my visit with Patrice and Wendell in. Thankfully, their front porch is always welcoming! You can visit them too, at Everyday Ruralty.
1. If you could instantly play a musical instrument, which one would it be?
That's easy - the piano. I love all the different music styles you can play on the piano, and how beautiful a keyboard is.
2. Do you have a fireplace, wood-stove, or pellet-stove?
None of the above. Any of these would be pretty useless in South Florida, though I know some houses have them from seeing the chimney. If they get lit once a year it's a lot. I guess some folks like the look of it, but I can't see justifying the expense in our climate.
3. What's your favorite addition to brownies?
My mouth ;). I love nuts, but they don't love me back :(.
4. Do you use much bottled water?
Sometimes. We have a filter in our fridge, plus I have Brita water bottles, so we don't need to purchase bottled water unless a hurricane is coming. Then I buy a truckload.
5. How much did you weight as a newborn?
I was a pretty standard sized baby, weighing in at 7 lbs. 8 oz.
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
