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 are your plans for Easter? Are you cooking a big lunch or dinner? Dyeing eggs? Attending a sun rise service? Eating too much chocolate?
We're having an Easter Egg Hunt for the Sunday School Class and then Church.  Then we'll probably go to lunch with hubby's family and hopefully our youngest daughter.

2. What is something you feel too young to do?
Live in a retirement home?  I don't know.

3. "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud...it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs..."

Of the characteristics mentioned in the biblical definition of love which do you find most difficult to live out and why?
It keeps no record of wrongs.  Because sometimes you think you can forgive, but it's really hard to forget when you've been wronged.

4. What's a springtime flower you associate with your childhood?
I'm not sure I have one, but maybe a tulip?  

5. Ever sung karaoke? If so, what's your go-to song? If not and you're given the opportunity, would you?
No, I have not sung karaoke.  Would I, if given a chance?  Depends on the place and  time and who all was present.

6. What is something you keep in a basket?
Yarn

7. When was the last time you felt foolish?
Nothing stands out to me right now.  Maybe because it's such a common occurrence.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Over the past month or so my dad has had cataract surgery on both of his eyes.  He is now seeing 20/20 in one and at least 20/50 in the other.  He is so pleased with how well he is seeing.  Mom says he walks around the house looking at everything and saying I didn't know this was so pretty, or I didn't know this had that much color.  They have a blue recliner in their family room that they have had for several years.  He told me after the first surgery that he had no idea that chair was blue.  He just thought it was grey or black.  He had lost almost all color.  In fact, now he has better vision than I do!  I am so happy for him. It's absolutely amazing what they can do now through surgery!

  1. My mother in law had cataract surgery last year and said the same thing. Kinda funny to think my 77 year old mother in law sees better than me at this point in time.

    Happy Easter~ hope you enjoy the day and your daughter is able to join you too!

  2. I'll have to agree with you on #2. So glad that your dad's vision has been restored. Seems like a lot of us have trouble with the record-keeping of wrongs. :-(
