Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
Patrice has had a rough week with sick animals and sick people. I've had only one sick little boy and I'm exhausted! Let's hope all the animals and people get better real quick. In the meantime, how about some chats on the front porch? Join Patrice, Wendell, and all the gang at Everyday Ruralty.
1. Do you like to have a variety of handbags, or are you happy with one old favorite?
I have several handbags but I tend to use the same two, a light brown and a dark brown that have lots of space. My other bags are either too small to accommodate everything I need, or they're too beat up to take anywhere.
2. Do prefer to have your hair long or short?
I like to wear my hair long, but not as long as I used to wear it. My hair used to go down my back. Now I keep it just beyond my shoulders. Hair, like every other part of our anatomy, loses its luster with age. My hair has lost its dark luster and replaced it with grays :P, so I color it. The longer my hair is, the more I have to color. I'd prefer to avoid all that extra work.
3. Are you doing any crafts for fall?
No, and that's a shame. I would love to do some kind of craft, but I'm not the crafty type. I like crafts, but they never look the way I'd like them to.
4. What's your favorite sweetener to use?
Why, sugar of course!
5. Tell me something interesting.
How about this: If Barbie were life size, her measurements would be 39-23-33. She would stand seven feet, two inches tall and have a neck twice the length of a normal human's neck. Doesn't make you want to look like Barbie much, does it?
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
