Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
This week is Patrice's birthday, so it's a celebration on the porch. Happy Birthday Miss Patrice! Join Patrice, Wendell, and all the gang at Everyday Ruralty.
1.Are you enjoying spring?
Yes, of course! Spring in South Florida means warm temperatures with cool breezes, rainy afternoons, flowers blooming everywhere, with the humidity still low enough that we can enjoy the weather.
2.Where would you take Patrice for her birthday, if you could spend a day together. Wendell hopes you would bring her back!
I would take Patrice to beautiful Hollywood Beach to enjoy the sand and surf.
3.What's your favorite spring flower?
I just planted some petunias in my backyard planter, and they are looking so pretty! I'll say petunias.
4.What do you do when you are going through a really stressful time?
The best place to be during stressful times is on my knees. Jesus is the only One who can get me through the trials of life.
5.What kind of birthday cake would you get for Patrice? And Wendell?
Wendell would have to have a carrot cake, of course! For Patrice, hmm, since I'm in South Florida, how about pie instead of cake? If you've never had key lime pie, I would get you one so you can know what a delicious and refreshing taste it has. I think you would love it.
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
