Five Question Friday
As the year winds down, I realize how hectic my life has been this month. Decorating, baking, church services, birthdays (3 in our house), Christmas Day, and we still have New Years to look forward to. I'm gonna add some normalcy to my life by joining in the Five Question Friday hop, hosted by Mama M at My Little Life.
1. If you had to give 1 million dollars to just one person (not your spouse), who would it be and why?
I would give my 1 million dollars to Jesus. He has given me eternal life, and after all everything we have belongs to Him. I would use it to pay for the building our old church is going to start construction on next year so that more people can come to know Christ.
2. What bathroom stall do you typically go to FIRST?
I always go to the first empty stall furthest from the bathroom door. It's one of those OCD issues of mine where things should be done in order, and picking a random bathroom stall or going for the one closest to the door is out of order.
3. How do you prefer to shop: In-store or online?
For clothing I like to shop in the store so I can try on the clothes before purchasing them. I don't trust sizes and I don't like returning stuff. Now, for other things, such as electronics, or books, or movies, that kind of stuff, nothing beats Amazon.
4. What's the weather like in your neck of the woods?
Our weather has been up and down this month. It gets up into the 80's, down into the 50's, up into the 70's, down into the 60's, back up into the 80's and so forth. We've had very little rain though a few humid days. Mostly lots of sunshine.
5. Do you own a pair of Tom's and what do you think? Overrated, underrated or about right?
I don't own any but my daughter has about 3 pair, and she raves about them. I got her a pair for her birthday and she is in shoe heaven. As far as she's concerned, there are no better shoes on the planet.
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
