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

Wednesday Hodgepodge


1. Your favorite chocolate treat?
Death By Chocolate which is absolutely the most decadent chocolate cake you can imagine!  The one I've had comes from our Kroger Bakery and it's so rich, you have to drink a glass of milk with it.

2. What more than anything else makes you feel loved?
I'm not sure what, but I know who...my hubby! 

3. Cherries or blueberries?
Probably blueberries, but I really love them both.

4. What is the one trait you most want the leader of your country to posess?
Honesty

5. Are you a saver or a spender?
Spender

6. If you gave a party for all of your friends would they already know each other?
No, not all of them.

7. Are you interested in antiques?
Some, but nothing like my mother.  Her house is full of antiques and it's beautiful.  I'm more of a I like old stuff if it has a memory attached or it belonged to someone I know.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Have you heard Francesca Battistelli's new song, "This is the Stuff"?  Take a listen, it's really good and this is the kind of stuff He's using to teach me right now.  Trying to learn more patience and less frustration.  Tough lesson to learn because so often I forget just "how big I'm blessed".



I lost my keys in the great unknown
And call me please 'Cuz I can't find my phone

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff that's getting to me lately
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed
This is the stuff that gets under my skin
But I gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

45 in a 35
Sirens and fines while I'm running behind
Whoa

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff that's getting to me lately
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed
This is the stuff that gets under my skin
But I gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

So break me of impatience
Conquer my frustrations
I've got a new appreciation
It's not the end of the world
Oh Oh Oh

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff
Someone save me
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed
This is the stuff that gets under my skin
And I've gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

  1. Love the song...so true its the little things in life that try our patience. Thanks for posting the lyrics too.

    I feel the same way about antiques...I need to know the story behind them or have my own memory to associate with the piece to make it special.

  2. I love that song ... it puts all those little things that make us crazy into perspective, doesn't it.

    I almost answered #4 the same way. It ranks a close second.

  9. Death by Chocolate sounds "to die for". I love the stories behind old items. Guess that is why I like the old stuff.
