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

Thank you Joyce for providing us with these questions every week.  Click the button if you'd like to play along with us.  There are some very wonderful people who like to Hodgepodge every Wednesday.

1. On Thursday we pause to remember a dark day in history-9/11. Will you mark it in some special way?
I have nothing planned.

2. Do you ever/still...listen to an actual radio? Watch a videotape (VCR)? Look up a number in a phonebook? Refer to a paper map while traveling? Set an alarm on an alarm clock as opposed to your phone?
I still listen to a radio in my car and we also use a radio as an alarm to wake up too.  Once in a while we watch a videotape, but evidently hubby has it unhooked right now.  I don't use a phone book, in fact as soon as we a get a new one, I throw it away.  We still have an atlas that we use, but not very often. Yes, we use an alarm clock most every morning.

3. Is it ever a good idea to discuss religion or politics with people you don't know?
Now see, when you say ever...that's a really long time.  So, I'd have to say, it may be sometimes ok, but most times probably not.

4. What's a dish you haven't eaten all summer, but come September find yourself craving? Have you made it yet this month?
Chili - but October is probably more when I start craving it.  No we haven't made it yet, but I'm sure it will be coming soon.

5. What's something you know nothing about?
If I know nothing about it, how would I know what the something is?

6. September is Classical Music Month. Do you like classical music? If so, what's your favorite piece?
Clair de Lune by Claude DeBussy and Pachelbel's Canon in D Major are two of my favorites. I found these videos on YouTube if you'd like to take a listen. 

7. What's the oldest thing you own?
I'm not sure.  I have some old furniture and a few antique dishes, but I'm really not sure how old they are.  I also have a teapot that was my grandmother's, but again I don't know how old it is, but I'd say at least 60-70 years.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Mom was admitted back into the hospital again yesterday.  They are trying to get some of her medication regulated.  Continued prayers would be appreciated.


  1. Will definitely be praying for your mom's speedy recovery, bless her heart. I'm craving chili, too, but it's just too hot here to fix it. Hopefully, next month!

  2. LOVE your classical selections too...such classics. Praying for a speedy recovery for your mom...

  3. Sorry to hear about your mom's setback. I will pray they get the meds sorted out promptly.

  4. Your poor momma :( Keep us updated

  5. I'm enjoying your classical music choices as I type this :)
    So sorry to hear about the setback with your mom. Praying that it will be resolved quickly!

  6. No you don't throw the phone book away.....you recycle it ! Yes that Canon in D is my all time favorite for sure. Sorry to hear about your mother. I will continue to pray.

  7. My husband teases me because I always look at phone books where ever we go. Just to see if I can find my maiden name. Flickinger. Sorry to read about your mom. Sure will say a special prayer for her.

  8. Sorry to hear about your mom being in the hospital. Praying for her and that things get worked out with her meds.

  9. Oh, dear ... I'm so sorry to hear that you mom had to go back into the hospital ... praying that her stay will be a short one.
