Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
Now that I've got my baking done and my turkey in the brine, I think I'll relax with a cup of tea and some chats on Patrice's farmhouse porch. Please join us at Everyday Ruralty.
1. What's the last thing you baked?
That would be the apple crumb pie that came out of the oven a few hours ago. The kitchen smells heavenly when there's an apple pie baking!
2. What's your favorite condiment?
Mrs. Dash. I like that it gives good flavor without a ton of sodium.
3. Do you have a smart phone, dumb phone, or no phone(we're talking about cell phones)?
I have a Blackberry that's 3 or 4 years old, meaning it was smart when it first came out but isn't anywhere near as smart as the phones that are available now.
4. Do you have a favorite card game?
Does Uno count? As far as card games with regular decks of cards, I'd pick gin rummy.
5. Tell me ten things you're thankful for - please:)
1 - Salvation through Jesus Christ.
2 - My two sons
3 - My beautiful daughter
4 - My siblings
5 - My mom who is still with us after having heart surgery last year
6 - My home, which I get to share with my family
7 - My church family
8 - The beautiful state of Florida where I get to live
9 - Creation
10 - Electricity (you don't know how much you need it till you don't have 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
