Five Question Friday
It's another Teacher's Planning Day, so my son is off from school, making this feel more like a Saturday than a Friday. Thank goodness for Mama M and my Five Question Friday post to remind me what day it is! Visit My Little Life to answer your five questions too.
1. What is your favorite book to read with your kids?
Since my youngest is now 13 and can read all by himself, we typically read the Bible together and any book that he gets from school for his reading class to review for tests. The last book we read together for school was The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
2. After having kids, what body part has changed the most?
Duh. My waistline. It isn't what it used to be. It's almost non-existent actually.
3. Would you ever go back to college? What would you study?
I might study interior design since it's a topic that interests me. Or I could go to Bible college and have a more in depth study of Scripture. But then, there's a 99.9% chance I would not go back to school. I consider myself done in that respect.
4. How do you close a phone call? Bye, bye bye or other?
If it's a business call, I end with, "Thank you, goodbye." If it's a close friend or family member, then I say, "Love you, bye."
5. What is the one food that will always be your "cheat food" on a diet?
Chips. Especially with like, chunky salsa. That is my weakness.
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
