Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
I'm joining Patrice and Wendell on their farmhouse porch today. Would you like to come too? We'll be drinking tea and having fun chats at Everyday Ruralty.
1. What did you do for Easter?
We had amazing church services Friday afternoon, Saturday evening and Sunday morning. Afterwards we grilled chicken and pineapple and had a pleasant afternoon at home.
2. How bad were you with candy or treats? (On a scale of 1-10. 1 being good, 10 being sugared up)
I would say I was at a 2. I didn't eat too much candy but I did have a little.
3. What's one of the first things you'd like to do when you have consistent spring temperatures?
Open up the windows. Summers in South Florida are sweltering. Spring is breezy and comfortable. I like letting that sweet clean air into the house.
4. How are you at gift buying?
I'd say I'm pretty good at gift buying. I try to focus on what folks need, not just what's pretty or shiny or the latest model.
5. Do you have an projects in mind for the month of April?
Not anything specific. I planted some flowers in the backyard planter, and if the weather holds up I would like to get the front yard fixed up too.
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
