Monday Quiz About Me
Welcome to my Monday Quiz post. Hilary at Acting Balanced provides 4 questions, then allows me the option of adding a 5th question. You can link up at her blog to join in.
1. Do you decorate outdoors for the holidays?
Yes! It's a lot of work but worth the effort. I love seeing houses decorated with lights.
2. What is the best thing about office Christmas parties?
Not having to work and actually getting to know your co-workers.
3. Gloves or Mittens?
Wow, I can't remember the last time I used either ones other than for gardening, and of course those would be gloves. Ah, the benefits of living in South Florida!
4. What do you think of Secret Santas?
They can be fun, as long as the people involved are mature about it. We had a secret Santa at work once and one of the employees insisted on writing up a list of what he wanted because he didn't want to get cheated out of a good present. It was downright ridiculous.
And now for my question:
5. Did you or a guest bake your Thanksgiving dessert, or was it store bought?
I baked an apple crumb pie that was to die for! Honestly, even my picky kids enjoyed it. We also had a store bought gingerbread train kit for my kiddos to put together.
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
