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

Random Dozen

Click the button to join in with Linda at 2nd cup of coffee.

1. Have you ever been so lost that you were really afraid?
Yes. My daughter's 8th grade class went to Washington DC and I went along as a driver.  I had a van full of the girls and no adult and no maps or GPS.  What was I thinking.  Anyway after a day in Washington DC we were heading back to the hotel and I had no idea how to get there.  All I could do was following the other vans.  I got separated at one point because someone cut me off.  Then we caught back up, but later they got a little ahead of us on the interstate.  I was the 3rd van in the line.  There was one more behind me.  Anyway, I made my daughter sit up front and help me watch the vans off in front of us.  Turns out we were watching the wrong van and they took off an exit (the right van) and we missed it.  Fortunately the father behind me followed me and we took off the next exit and stopped and talked.  I had no idea how to get to the hotel.  He thought he might so he took the lead and eventually got us back.  If he hadn't followed me, I don't know what would have happened.  I was terrified to say the least!  lol

2. Have you ever been to an island?
Yes. I've been to the Bahamas and too two of the Virgin Islands.

3. Are you more of a thinker or feeler?
Probably a thinker.

4. Do you tend to see issues or situations in life as black and white or shades of gray?
Depends on what it is. Probably more shades of gray.

5. If you were stuck on an island, what book would you hope to have with you (Let's pretend the Bible is already there, so you can't say that.)
"The Shack"

6. What are you most afraid of?

7. Would you rather lose all of your old memories or never be able to make new ones?

8. Pretend I'm looking at a scrapbook page about you. There are three spaces for you to drop in individual pictures. What are those pictures of, and why did you select them?
My wedding - because I love my man and I wouldn't trade being married to him for anything.
My kids - because I love them too.
My extended family

9. If you were re-doing your wedding, what would you do differently? (If you're single, tell me one thing you would do if you were planning a wedding OR huge party.)
I don't think I'd change a thing. It was perfect.

10. Tell me one thing you know/believe about forgiveness.
That God forgives me each and every time that I mess up when I come back and repent. Why? Because He loves me! He says so in His Word!

11. You're waiting in a doctor's office. What is your favorite way to pass that time?
I read a book or look at a magazine and I pray and talk to God.

12. If there were a clone of you in a parallel universe what is one way you hope she/he would be the same as you and one way you hope she/he would be better?
I would hope they love the Lord like I do.
I would hope they understood that God really loves them at a younger age than I did.


  1. I feel ya on the spider deal...HATE THEM THINGS!

    Even though I have only be married for 14 years there is a ton I would change about my wedding(starting with my dress...YIKES!!!!)

    Love your list!

  2. I think DC is one of the easiest places to get lost, particularly around the tourist sites. They are not well marked. We lived in that area and my hubs knows it well but before we actually lived in MD we visited one year and we kept going round and round in circles trying to get to the Jefferson Memorial. We could see it but we couldn't figure out how to get to it. So frustrating!

  3. These are great answers. It's so fun to see the different directions people take with the questions. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  4. Enjoyed your answers! I was glad my hubby had lived in DC when we visited there. It is a confusing city. lol.

    until next time... nel

  5. Hi Cathy
    I don't like spiders either. We don't have poisonous ones over here but I am still scared of them. I don't kill them but I have to put them outside!
    I received your book today. THANK YOU so much. I look forward to reading it.

  6. Great answers, don't you just love answering them each week? I do!
    Then we get to see what others said.

  7. I've read several posts that have said that they wouldn't change anything for their wedding. I love that!

  8. I would have to go with Snakes, but spiders rank pretty high too.
    I wish I could have been on an island. How blessed are you to have been to two. wow!

  9. This one was fun! great answers!

  10. I don't like spiders or snakes! LOL

    Good answers, Cathy! The Shack is one of my favorite books!


  11. hate, hate, hate spiders and love, love, LOVE *The Shack*!

  12. Don't agree on the spider thing, I LOVE LOVE LOVE spiders, they are just so cute! I even let them live on my walls/ceiling in the winter because it's too cold for them outside. (In the summer I put them out as I think they'd be happier in the garden). The ones that stay inside I ususally end up naming haha. Although, they probably die from lack of food in my house after a few days as they do seem to disappear.

  13. just checking in...I've been busy this week and haven't been blogging/reading. Sorry!!! Hope you had a great week!

  14. Hi Cathy,

    Enjoy your day!
