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. My real life friends came through with another question this week so thank you real life friends. When you've eaten in a restaurant do you complete their comment card? Do you take online surveys highlighted at the bottom of store receipts?
Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't.  There really is no rhyme or reason as to why I do or don't.

2. The (US) ban on women in combat was lifted at the end of January. It will probably be next year before specifics are worked out, but its been reported over 200,000 front line positions will eventually open up to women. Your thoughts?
Probably not a popular opinion, but I don't really feel women belong in combat.  I really don't wish to argue the point or even defend my position, just my thought.

3. In looking back at all the blog posts you've written, what's your favorite post title?
"It's a Mouse...but it sure isn't Mickey" which you can read here if you want.

4. What's worse-overly permissive parents or overly protective parents? Did your own parents lean more to the permissive or the protective category? If you're a parent where do you fall?
I think overly-permissive is probably worse.  I was probably over-protective, at least in some peoples' minds. But I probably wouldn't change much if I had to do it over.  I tried to raise them the same way I was raised.

5. Candlelight-moonlight-firelight-bright lights in the big city...which one's your favorite?

6. Dr. Seuss's birthday was celebrated on Saturday. What's a favorite book you remember (Seuss or otherwise) from your own childhood? Did books play an important role in your growing up years? Explain.
Oh yes.  My mom used to take us to the library all the time and we loved checking out books and reading.  I think all five of us kids loved to read.

7. To quote Dr. Seuss...

"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere."
from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

Share something funny you've recently read, seen or heard.
Can't think of a thing right now.  But tonight I cut my finger just before leaving for Bible Study, so I slapped a napkin on it to stop the flow and grabbed a bandaid and went out to the car.  Hubby opened the bandaid for me as I was driving and low and behold I had grabbed a Dr. Seuss bandaid.  Now remember my girls are 18 and 21.  How in the world do we have a Dr. Seuss bandaid in our house.  Weird!
The bandaid was bright green and had these characters on it I think.
Come to think of it, not one soul said anything about this bandaid on me...maybe they are used to me being weird!  haha
8. Insert your own random thought here.
It's 11:30pm and it started snowing about 8:30 or so and we already have probably almost 3 inches.  Yuck!  It's pretty tonight, but I know we have to go to work in it in the morning.  Yuck!!


  1. That is weird that you grabbed a Dr. Seuss bandaid! Be careful out there!

  2. I'm with you on moonlight....
    That is pretty stange about the Dr. Suess bandaid. My daughter is almost 32 and collects bandaids. Hope you have a great day and be careful in that snow.

  3. Well at least you had a band aid on hand. It made for a cute story as well.

  4. That's so funny about the Dr. Seuss bandaid. I'm pretty sure we have some Dora the Explorer bandaids around here somewhere. ;)

  5. A Dr. Seuss bandaid? Strange. I have some princess and super hero bandaids here ... but then I have grands. ;-)

    Stay safe.

  6. See - its nothing unusual at all for us to have Disney princss band-aids. My husband hates it, but I tell him to go buy them himself then :)

    I can totally underestand - I have mixed feelings about women in combat.

    Stay safe in the snow... SPRING IS NEAR!!!

  7. I love the Dr Seuss bandaid, and especially that no one even mentioned it! Enjoyed your answers. Be safe!
    until next time...nel

  8. Great response to the question about women in combat. I get so tired of having to defend or discuss every opinion, especially the controversial topics. It's not that I don't have a defense or am incapable of rational discussion, I just don't WANT to sometimes.

  9. We got a bunch of snow yesterday too :) Off to read about "It's a mouse..." Hope you had a great wednesday!

  10. Personally I think a fun bandaid makes a mishap more bearable : )

    We are expecting some snow overnight...I'm hoping it doesn't amount to anything. I've moved into Spring mode and need the weather to follow suit!

  11. I love that you grabbed a Dr. Suess bandaid! Perfect timing - and a conversation piece as well. Hope your finger is healing!

  12. I hope the snow didnt' turn out to bad for you. Love the bandaid story. Too funny. We are due for the snow today but I think we will not much. I think it will die out over us.
