Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
Grab a cup of tea and join me, Patrice, Wendell and the gang on her porch for some chats at Everyday Ruralty.
1. What's your favorite fruit?
Seeing as I'm a native New Yorker, that would have to be apples. In pies, in sauce, or just like it comes off the tree. Raisins come in second.
2. Wendell would like to know if you've ever been horseback riding.
You know, I never have. My uncle had a horse but it was so big it scared me and I never rode it. Silly me.
3. Do you carry a small purse, a big one, or just a wallet?
I usually carry a mid-sized purse. Not too big, because then I'll over fill it, but not too small since I always carry my folding umbrella in it. If you live in Florida you know that an umbrella on hand is a necessity.
4. If you could travel to one state for a day (all expense paid), where would you go? If you're not in the US, where would you like to travel within your country?
I would visit Washington DC, or historic Virginia. I love learning about the history of our great nation.
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
