Five Question Friday
Mama M is enjoying some fun time in Orlando, Florida (Disney World, yay!) so I got my five questions off of Pamela's blog, Troop Petrie.
1. What snacks/drinks do you eat at the movies?
None. I refuse to pay the astronomical prices for some popcorn and soda, especially since popcorn ends up messing with my digestive system and I don't drink soda anymore. All the other stuff is so unhealthy I don't want to touch it. We eat before going to the movies, and if it's an extra long movie, I'll bring some vanilla yogurt covered raisins with me.
2. What's one food you refuse to try?
Mushrooms. There's something about eating fungus that sounds unappetizing.
3. What's your favorite nail polish color?
I like pinks, reds, and bronzes. I totally dislike blue, green, orange, all the wild colors that are in style now. I must be getting old.
4. What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
Watching Miracle on 34th Street. To me it kicks off the holiday season, starting with Thanksgiving Day and the Macy's Parade and ending on Christmas Day. It's such a heartwarming movie too.
5. What are your least favorite words in the English language?
Two words I can't stand to hear my children say to me: "Yeah, but..." Their insistence on contradicting my instructions irritates me to no end.
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
