If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Friday Fotos

Photos from my week. 

Mama Duck is gone and so are the ducklings and unfortunately I didn’t get to see them. 

Love all these birds at the feeders. We were waiting for the car parade to start where my sister lives. 

Lined up for the parade.  (in front of us)
Lined up behind us (I heard there were 60 cars involved)

Sign for my sister.

We took my mother-in-law on Monday to decorate for my father-in-law's grave 
Our front porch
Love these flowers and my hummingbird feeder

My husband's grandfather

Hope you enjoyed these pictures from my week.

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for (not in any particular order, except just what is popping into my head):

**Blue skies and sunshine

**Things are slowing heading back closer to normal.
**My home
**My husband
**Our church family
**Our family family
**My job
**My health
**My puppy

**Beautiful flowers

**Scriptures that tell me about God
**Knowing I am headed to heaven some day to see all my family and friends who are already there.

So, what are you thankful for today?

Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. The US of A celebrated Memorial Day this past Monday. Does your family have any military ties? If so, tell us about them.
My father-in-law served and so did many of my cousins.

This is my father-in-law
2. Cole slaw, potato salad, baked beans, potato chips, mac and cheese, macaroni salad...your favorite BBQ side? How many of these do you make from scratch vs. buying from the deli?
My favorite is baked beans, and yes I make them.

3.  I enjoyed asking this question back when the Hodgepodge was a regular thing...Lake Superior State University posts a list each year of words they think should be banished from the Queen's English for misuse, overuse, and/or general uselessness. The 2020 list includes-quid pro quo, artisanal, curated, influencer, literally, I mean, living my best life, mouthful (word used by foodies to describe texture of food in their mouth), chirp (basically an insult, you can read more on the website), jelly (short for jealous), totes (short for totally), vibe, and OK Boomer (internet response from millenial to older generation).

Of the words/phrases listed which would you most like to see 'banned'?

Literally is the one I'd like to see gone.  People use it all the time and sometimes they literally use it wrong.

4. I'm sure next year's list will be filled with words springing out of this weird season we're all in currently. What word or phrase associated with the Corona would you be happy to hear less often?

Stay at Home Orders -- I'm not saying it's wasn't necessary, but I'm just tired of hearing about it.

5.  The month of May wraps up in just a few days. Bid her adieu in ten words or less.

Goodbye May, I'm ready to move on to other things.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

It sure seems that around here, it's gone from winter-straight into summer.  On Mother's Day we were worrying about freezes and now it's in the 80's.  Crazy!
