Monday Quiz About Me
I'm taking a break to post my Monday Quiz post, courtesy of Heather at Acting Balanced. Four questions are provided, with the option to add a fifth question for you to answer on my blog. Here we go with this week's questions:
1. What is your favorite thing about November?
Why, Thanksgiving of course! I love a holiday that isn't about getting, but all about giving. Giving thanks for blessings is a beautiful thing.
2. What was the last thing that you bought that you regretted soon afterwards?
I think too much about purchases beforehand so I don't often regret. I think in this case it's a video game I bought my son for Christmas which he now says he's not that into. I think once it's in his hands, though, he'll get excited about it.
3. What is your go to snack food?
Raisins. Specifically, vanilla yogurt covered raisins. I always have them on hand, they are yummy and nutritious.
4. Do you believe that newspapers should charge for their online content?
Only if they take all the ads out and charge only for actual news. If I have to pay AND see the ads, it's not worth it.
And now my fifth question:
5. When will you start decorating your home for Christmas?
Unlike department stores that were already putting up trees and wreaths in October, I wait till after Thanksgiving. The very next day. I have lots and lots of decorations, and I enjoy putting them up and seeing them for as long as I can, so they go up when everyone else is at the Black Friday sales.
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
