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

Come on...what are you waiting on?  Click the button above and join us.  Don't forget to read my answers and comment first though!  haha

1. It's that most wonderful time of the year...tax season! Do you complete your own returns or farm that job out to the professionals?

2. This next question comes from Kansas Bob...he posed it in his response to something I asked in an earlier Wednesday post and I asked him if I could add it to the Hodgepodge some day. Today's the day....

Which do you think has changed you more-love or pain?
Probably pain...it makes me stay closer to Jesus.

3. Tangerine Tango has been named color of the year for 2012. Your thoughts? Would I find this color anywhere in your house? How about in your closet? If not, will you be adding this color to your life in some way in 2012? If you're not sure what tangerine tango looks like click here.
I'm not real fond of that color and no I don't expect to use it in my home.

4. Are you a collector? What do you collect and does it get admired, used, and/or dusted regularly?
I'm not really a collector, unless maybe books or craft items.  I read the books, although I mostly just get them for my Kindle now...saves a lot of space in my house.  I have lots of crafty items that I've purchased and haven't finished.  Hopefully someday...like when I retire.  haha

5. February is National Heart Month...besides a green salad what is one tasty heart healthy dish you like to prepare?
Grilled chicken is a favorite.

6. When was the last time you had car trouble?
We had a tire blow-out on our trip to Florida last fall.  Had to be towed off I-75.  Wow!  Did you know people fly on that road.  Felt like they would blow us off the side of the road.  Kinda scary!

7. Have you been more demanding on yourself lately or less? Is that a good trend?
I think I'm probably the same.  I can't think of any changes in that area.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I am so in the mood to visit Amish Country in Ohio again.

And to also go to the Longaberger Basket Factory.  They are relatively close to each other.


  1. Pain does keep us close to Jesus... well said.

    I can tell my Kindle is gonna keep my shelves safer from the overload of books :)

  2. I love your answer to #2.

    We had a blow-out a couple of years ago on our way to Florida. Our car had to be loaded onto a flatbed and driven to a repair shop. Not the start to our vacation that we had envisioned! ;-)

  3. We used to go to Lancaster Pa when I was a child. I mostly remember the wonderful food. Naturally : )

  4. I love visiting the cheese shop in Amish Country. They have the most delicious cream cheese fudge!

  5. My grandmother's family was from Amish Country in PA. I've always wanted to visit there!

  6. I-75 does get crazy! I wouldn't want to break down on that interstate!

    I have a Kindle app on my Ipad, and I love how many books I carry around with me now. : )

  7. We have an Amish community right up the road from us. It's fun to see an occasional buggy on the road or in the parking lot at Wal-Mart. :)
    I have never been to the Longaberger factory, but always thought it would be a fun trip. I have many, many of their baskets.

  8. I've always been scared I'll have a blowout on a busy freeway. So far not! I can just imagine how scary that would have been.

  9. Wow, what a road to have a blowout on, I can't imagine.

    I love your #8, I think it is time to visit. I have never been to Amish country but would love to go.

  10. I like this hodgepodge thing - fun getting to know people. I'm with you about the color Tangerine (can't imagine who picked that as the "in" color???) Hope you get to the Amish country again real soon.

  11. Oh my word, but I would so love to visit the Amish country as well. It would be such a welcome respite from my crazy life!!!
