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. What is the most useful book in your house?
Our Bibles and my Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book.

2. What's worse-being too hot or too cold?
Definitely too hot. I can always put on more clothes, but honey you can only take off so many and still be allowed out in public!

3. Share something that made you smile this past weekend.
Our small town parade.

4. How do you like your hamburgers? Or don't you?
Cooked about medium and on a honey bun with mayo or Frisch's Tarter Sauce, tomato and American Cheese.

5. What's your summer beach read? If it's not summer in your part of the world then tell us what book you're reading in front of the fire while sipping hot cocoa.
I've been reading a lot lately. In about the last 2 weeks I've read Snodgrass Vacation by Dave Conifer (which was hysterical, but definitely not christian fiction) Lonestar Sanctuary by Colleen Coble (very good), Boyfriends, Burritos and an Ocean of Trouble by Nancy Rue(teen fiction, but rather interesting) and I'm currently reading Breathe: A Novel of Colorado by Lisa T. Bergren. (historical christian fiction)

6. How was your birthday celebrated when you were a kid?
Mom would make us a cake and we'd get a gift. We didn't make big deals about it, but it just just celebrated with immediate family.

7. What's something that is totally uncool that you love anyway?
I don't know, cause if I love it, then it's cool to me!

8. Insert your own random thought here.
At church Sunday night we met in a Sunday School room and sang a bunch of old Hymns a cappella and then we ate watermelon, honey dew melons and cantelope.  We laughingly called it "Melons and Melodies."  We're a small group on Sunday nights, but we sure had fun.



  1. I love small groups! We do the same thing here onlybwe meet in homes. Love getting closer to that small bunch.

  2. I love small town parades and the old hymn sing alongs...sounds great to me!

  3. The parade looks like it was very nice. Our town has a big Fourth of July celebration, including a 2-hour parade. I grew up going every year and love it, but I married a man who doesn't love a parade...and the kiddos have taken after him as they've gotten older. It's been a long time since I've gotten to go.

  4. I love my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook! I've had it for nearly 40 years!

    Melons and melodys sounds like a fun combination!

  5. I so miss our small town parades! Love the melons and melodies idea!

  6. Bible was my first choice followed by cookbooks. I miss the old hymn songs. Enjoyed your answers. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  7. I agree being too hot is the thing that is worse than being too cold come see the rest of my answers at http://shopannies.blogspot.com

  8. Your #2 and mine were very similar! HA! And I may have to check out some of the books on your summer reading list.

  9. The small town parade looks like so much fun! That sounds like a great way to spend a Sunday evening.

  10. The town where my daughter lives has a parade for every occasion - excepy July 4. Your parade looks like a lot of fun!

  11. The books on your reading lists sound great! Enjoy!

  12. Wow! I love the melons & Melodies, dreaming of finding a church at the moment... God willing, where ever he wants us. I love the small group, family of a church, just missing it at the moment. Thanks for the reminder it still exists.
