Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
I finished dyeing my hair and now I'm having dinner. I'm gonna squeeze in some chat time with Patrice and Wendell before I head off to our Awana's Happy Birthday Jesus party. Let's have some coffee and chats at Everyday Ruralty.
1. What would you like to see under your Christmas tree?
The new Tim Hawkin's comedy DVD. That man makes me laugh till I cry, he is the funniest comedian EVER!
2. What is your best color for clothes?
I find I look best in shades of purple.
3. Tell me your favorite kind of cookie.
Chocolate chip. The crunchy kind, not the soft ones.
4. What's in the middle of your dining table right now? (flowers, a lazy susan with condiments, Christmas decorations...)
A candy dish filled with colorful glass ornaments, and two reindeer candle holders.
5. Please help me spread Christmas cheer to my buddy, Wendell. Please a wish for him here. :)
Wendell, did you know your ancestors were the first to see the Baby Jesus when He was born? They were in a stable, and the Baby was placed in a manger, maybe belonging to a distant family member of yours! That makes you very special! I hope you will think about that as you enjoy celebrating the birth of our Savior. God bless you.
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
