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

Click above to join in with Hodgepodge.  You will definitely enjoy it, plus you might make some new friends.

1. Lake Superior University has once again published a list of words/phrases they think should be banished from the Queen's English...here's the list for 2013-

fiscal cliff, kick the can down the road, double down, job creators/creation, passion/passionate, yolo (an acronym for you only live once), spoiler alert, bucket list, trending, superfood, boneless wings, and guru

Which of these words/phrases would you most like to see banished from everyday speech and why. Go here to read more about how the words were chosen.
To be honest, I haven't heard any of them used overly much to where I've gotten tired of them.  So in my opinion they should all stay.

2. When was the last time you rode a train? Where did you go?
In September, we rode a train at Disney World.  It's at Animal Kingdom and goes to the the Animal Nursery called Rafiki's Planet.  I have a picture of the train, however my pictures have not been loaded back on my computer since it had the virus.

3. Bagels-yay or nay? Favorite 'flavor'? Favorite topping?
Yay, but I rarely ever have one.  I really think I've only ever had the plain ones with cream cheese. 

4. 'Tis the season of awards shows...if you could star in a movie already made which one would you choose?
"Lake House".  I love that movie and I love that house.
 Both of these pictures are from the internet

5. The move towards single gender classrooms has been making the news in recent months....what say you? Do you think kids perform better if seperated by gender and are taught differently or is that discrimination? If you're a parent, is this something you'd support in regard to your own children?
I didn't know that was being discussed.  I really don't have a problem either way.

6. What's your favorite thing about staying in a hotel?
Someone else cleaning up the room and making the bed.

7. Do you have a 'word' for 2013? What's the story behind your choice?
 This is my word for 2013.  You may read my 2 previous posts to see why.  I thing while I'm here I'll add a few more thanks:
6. a good supper made by my husband
7. the chance to spend time with this little sweetie.
She loves playing with her mama's phone

8.  Home made potato soup

Little by little we're getting our house a little more organized.  Still have a long way to go though.

  2. That is an adorable picture, and I love that movie!

  5. They start young with those phones ;)

    Ohhhhh... see - this is why we're friends. I LOVE LAKE HOUSE!!!!! In my top 5 movies!

  6. That baby is ADORABLE! Lake House is such a wonderful choice! I don't eat bagels very often, either, but plain with a little cream cheese is the only way to go for me, too.

  7. The house from that movie is amazing. I did enjoy that movie. I hope to join in the one word soon. Loved reading your answers.

  8. Enjoyed your answers! What a precious baby, she looks like a little porcelain doll! Like one of the Lee Middleton dolls. Cute!

  11. Amen on the hotel answer! I think we all pretty much agree on that one!

    Love seeing pictures of your little visitor! She's so cute!!

  12. When we bought our lake house, I bought that movie to keep there. Our house is nothing like that one though. Lol. Good luck with your SSMT goal of memorizing the whole chapter. I am excited about the challenge. I enjoy memorizing, and just hope I can keep up with it for the year.
