Five Question Friday
Finally Friday! Why does the rest of the week go soooo slooowly, and the weekend zooms by? Oh well, I don't care, I'm gonna enjoy the beginning of this weekend, with a Five Question Friday post, courtesy of Mama M at My Little Life.
1. Did you have any homecoming traditions?
Nope, none. Our church now has homecoming week for the school, so other than the football game everything is for the students and their families.
2. Do you ask your spouse before spending money?
For very large expensive purchases, yes. Otherwise, no. I'm a big girl. I know not to spend frivolously.
3. If you could be famous for something what would it be?
I don't think I'd ever want to be famous, but if it was so, I'd like it to be for something worthwhile, like a good deed.
4. Have you ever seriously thought you were going crazy?
Duh. Motherhood does that to all of us, especially when we're sleep deprived.
5. How do you eat your steak? Burger? (as in, well done, medium, still moo-ing...)
Medium well. I don't like it overcooked, but I also don't want to see it dripping blood. Slightly pink works for me.
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
