Follow Friday Four Fill-In Fun
Welcome to Friday's fill-in post, courtesy of Hilary over at Feeling Beachie. This is my favorite blog hop, because it makes my brain work. Trust me, these aren't easy. Try it and you'll see.
This week’s statements:
1. I am a ____
I am a quiet introvert. Till you get to know me. Then I can be a Chatty Cathy.
2. Sometimes I don’t know when to ____
Sometimes I don't know when to speak up and when to shut up.
3. My two favorite words lately are ___________ and ____________
My two favorite words lately are transfats and boogers. Let me explain. My favorite comedian, Tim Hawkins, was talking about our obsession with healthy eating. He said wouldn't it be funny if we got to heaven and the angels said we've got it all wrong and what we needed to be eating was transfats and boogers? Now that's a running joke in my house. Every time someone asks what's for dinner I say, "Transfats and boogers," and we get a big laugh.
4. I would like ____________ if ____________ didn’t happen
I would like dentists more if drilling didn't happen.
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
