Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
Welcome to Patrice's porch over at Everyday Ruralty. Wendell the Wonder Horse is there too. We have a really nice time chatting with all the gals there. Join us for some interesting topics.
1. Who has the most outgoing personality in your family?
That would be my youngest son. He is the only extrovert, the one who will strike up a conversation with total strangers.
2. How did you name your blog?
I was going through some major changes in my life and it was very hard for me. I don't like change. I had to learn to accept that God makes changes for my good, and so my blog was named Accepting Change.
3. What's your favorite topping for ice cream?
Sweetened condensed milk. It is sooo decadent. I don't have it anymore, seeing as I'm lactose intolerant, but it was my topping of choice when I was younger.
4. Tell me about someone you know who would make a wonderful character for a book. Oops- please.
Why, Wendell of course! He's the most interesting horse I know!
5. Please tell me up to three questions that you think I should ask on future farmhouse chats.
Why Patrice, aren't you a wise woman! Okay, let's see. 1 - When was the last time you tried something new? 2 - If you had the opportunity to teach something, what would you teach? And 3 - How do you spend the majority of your free time?
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
