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 the button on the left to join in the Hodgepodge fun with us.

1.What makes love last?
If you're talking marriage love, then determine when you marry that it is forever.  Never think for one second that if I don't like it, I can just divorce. And a good rule for anyone you love (including spouse, children, friends,etc is, don't expect perfection from the one you love and don't try to change them.  Just keep on loving them.  And hopefully they'll do the same. 

2. The Beatles made their US debut fifty years ago this week. Are you a fan? If so, what's your favorite Beatles tune?
No, I have never really been what I'd call a fan.  However, when I look at a list of their music, I really did like quite a few of their songs.  Let It Be and I Wanna Hold Your Hand are probably a couple of favorites.

3. Valentine's Day-your thoughts? Do you celebrate in any way? Do anything special for the people you love? Expect anything special from the people who love you?
Hubby and I typically go out to dinner to celebrate and I send my girls cards and sometimes little gifts and candies.

4. Steak or burger...you have to choose. Now that that's settled, how do you like it?
Steak - Prime Rib specifically and medium suits me.  In fact, that's what we had for dinner last night.  We did our Valentine Dinner early.

5. The Hodgepodge lands on the birthdate (February 12th) of Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States of America. Lincoln is quoted as saying, 'Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test his character give him power.' Do you agree? Why or why not?
Yes, I agree.  I think power can mess us up if not handled right.

6. Honest Abe's image is featured on the US penny (1 cent coin) so I'm wondering...what do you do with your pennies (or your country's equivalent)? It's been suggested the US stop making the penny, and two bills have been introduced proposing just that, but neither were approved. What say you?
We put pennies in a glass jar, along with other change and use it for our Disney trips.  And yes, I am one of those people who will always bend over and pick up a penny!  

7. Do you think pop culture deserves serious study?
Can't say I really have much of an opinion on this.  At least not right now.  

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Lucy comes home this afternoon after being spayed.  She's been gone since Monday morning.  Sure do miss her.  How in the world do you learn to love something so much so quickly? :)


  1. Oh my, they keep pups longer after spaying now than they used to ... when we had our girlies spayed, they just stayed overnight. Give your sweet Lucy a hug from me!

  2. Questions this week REALLY made me think, haha. We always keep our change in a jar too, but it doesn't add up like it used to. I was thinking the same thing as Kathy. Poor little Lucy had to stay a long time. Ours never stayed more than over night. Glad she's home and hopefully feeling just fine. Enjoy your day!

  3. I collect pennies but I mostly shop with my debit card so i don’t get as much change as i used to. I pick up pennies if I see them and often put them in my shoe to see if it really does being good luck. :)

  4. Prime rib...now you're making me hungry! Welcome home to Lucy :)

  5. You and I had similar answers to #6...saving does pay off! Hope little Lucy did well with her surgery. I know she'll be just as thrilled to see you as you will be to see her! Have a Happy Reunion! :)

  6. God made 'em so cute for that reason - you'd fall in love quick :)
    My parents always send me cards & candies for V-day & I never get too old for it.

  7. hmmm prime rib sounds good! Enjoyed your answers!

  8. Just keep on loving them is great advice. And I feel the same about the Beatles. Not a huge fan, but enjoy many of their really great songs. Hope little Lucy recovers well. Have a great day.

  9. I could go for a medium steak right now!!!! Me too, I always pick up that penny. Hope all is well with Lucy. I am sure she will be happy to be home. I know, the love we feel for them is amazing and a wonderful blessing from God.

  10. Hoping your Miss Lucy is A-OK! Prepping for another huge storm here beginning tonite. I've heard all sorts of predictions from 6-14 inches...pretty big gap : )

  11. The last time I picked up a penny, I got a speeding ticket the next day, so I don't do it any more! (I realize that's a little dramatic!) Isn't it amazing how quickly we can get attached to our little fur babies?

  12. I always pick up a penny too. IF it's heads up. Something about luck and, once that got stuck in my head...LOL
