Monday Quiz About Me
It looks like it's gonna be a rainy day in South Florida. Very different from the dry weather we've been getting the past couple of weeks, but my plants are loving it! Here's a fun blog hop - Heather at Acting Balanced provides 4 questions, then I get to ask one of my own for you to answer on my blog. Are you up for it? Here we go:
1. What is your favorite kind of soup?
I like most soups, but I'm very partial to lentil soup.
2. When was the last time you saw snow?
1986. That's the year I moved to Florida and have not seen snow since. There are moments when I wonder...but they don't last. I like my snowless existence.
3. What is a must have trait if someone is going to live with you?
They must like my cooking. I will not have anyone living in my house that doesn't like what I prepare.
4. Who was your favorite James Bond?
Hmm, it's a toss-up between Sean Connery and Roger Moore. Sean Connery was a debonair Bond, while Roger Moore added a slightly humorous side to the character.
And now my question:
5. Christmas trees: real or artificial?
We had real trees for years, and I kept noticing that my allergies would act up in November right after Thanksgiving and go away after New Years. I finally had to accept the fact that the problem was the tree. About 6 or 7 years ago we got our first pre-lit artificial tree, and while my daughter has complained about it every year, I love it. It's almost time for a new one, though. Most of the lights on this one have gone out, never to brighten our tree again. :P
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
