Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
How about a cozy chat with Patrice and Wendell? They welcome us every week at their porch. You can visit too, at Everyday Ruralty.
1. What's your favorite thing to have in hot cocoa/ hot chocolate?
Lactose free milk. If I have regular milk I'll get a nasty stomachache. I hate being lactose intolerant.
2. Did you have a white Christmas? Have you had snow since then?
No, and no. I live in South Florida. We only get snow...never.
3. Have you been looking over seed catalogs? If this doesn't apply, what kind of catalogs do you like to leaf through?
I rarely pick up a catalog of any kind anymore. I guess it's much simpler to find things on the internet.
4. Gas stove or electric?
I have electric. I prefer gas. I learned to cook on a gas stove and I miss it.
5. What's new or interesting?
My daughter went to the dentist yesterday and found out one of her wisdom teeth is impacted. It's lying down on its side. She's gonna have to see an oral surgeon next week, and she's not looking forward to it. We're gonna be praying the procedure can be done quickly and painlessly.
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
