Follow Friday Four Fill-In Fun
I'm thankful that Hilary is back after Hurricane Sandy interrupted her life. As she gets her home back in order, I'll join in for some Friday fill-ins. If you care to give it a try, visit her at Feeling Beachie.
This week’s statements:
1. I put ___ on a hot dog
I put brown mustard and either relish or onions on a hot dog. Which isn't often, since hot dogs don't do well in my tummy :(
2. when it___ I ____
When it is sunny and warm out I wish we had a barbecue so I could cook outside. What kind of person lives in South Florida and doesn't have a barbecue? This one right here. Hopefully I'll remedy that soon.
3. If my house____then I would be able to___
If my house were larger then I would be able to foster kids. I need extra bedrooms.
4. If I was getting married tomorrow I would _______________ differently so we could ________________differently now.
If I was getting married tomorrow I would choose differently so we could live differently now. Don't get me wrong, I'm not filled with regrets. I just know now that I should have been more discerning.
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
