Here are the rules: there are FOUR QUESTIONS that everyone can answer and then you have the option to add a fifth question of your own for those who are visiting your blog to answer in the comment section, along with commenting on the four standard questions you answered! Here we go:
1. When was the last time you had your picture taken with Santa?
Since we didn't celebrate Christmas when I was growing up, I've never had my picture taken with Santa.
2. Which do you prefer - ham or turkey?
Don't put me in a position to have to choose! I love them both! I love a good brined turkey, stuffed and roasted to perfection. I also love baked ham with drizzled with glaze and chunks of pineapple. No way I can pick one over the other.
3. Do you give more to charity in December?
I try to give all year round. Any time I have the opportunity to give more I do it, and don't wait till the holidays. It's nice to give extra at Christmas, but it's even nicer to give extra for no reason.
4. Which US City would you most like to visit and why?
I would love to visit Washington DC and see all the historical monuments.
And now for my fifth question:
5. Do you live in the same town/city/state you were born in?
I do not. I was born in the Bronx, in New York City. I now live in a small town outside of Miami, Florida.
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
