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. When did someone last suggest you 'chill out'? Or, when did you last tell someone (or want to tell someone) to 'chill out'? Or, when did you last tell yourself to 'chill out'?
I don't remember when the last time was that someone told me to chill out but it is probably something I need to tell myself a little more often.  Although that isn't a phrase I use too often.  It would be more like relax, calm down, it'll work out.  I can get pretty excited when things don't go smoothly and I need to learn to relax.

2. What most recently caused your heart to melt?
My puppy makes my heart melt every time she gives me those sad puppy dog eyes when we leave the house.

 


3. "An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered." G.K. Chesterton
Your thoughts? When did you last experience either an adventure or an inconvenience? How did you see it at first, as an adventure or an inconvenience? Does it feel the same in hindsight?
I really have nothing for this right now. 

4. A Wendy's Frosty, root beer in a frosty mug, or a frosted chocolate cupcake...of these three, which one is your favorite 'frosty' treat?
A frosted chocolate cupcake.  Yummy!!

5. Would you say your life so far this year has been more like a circus or a symphony? Explain why.
Both.  Like a symphony in that hubby and I have had some fairly relaxing evenings and weekends lately and that is so soothing to me.  But like a circus, in that we've had doctor's appointments for us and for family, a memorial service for my aunt, plus work, etc.  

6. Since it's a 'snow day' here, what's your favorite song containing the word 'white'?
White Christmas

7. If you had to leave the city you currently live in, what would you find the hardest to leave behind?
My family.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
The below scripture was in a recent Devotion I'm using.  I really love these verses.  They make me realize just how much God loves me..."how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is.  Love it.

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. (Ephesians 3:16-19 NLT)

  2. Those are some of my favorite verses in the Bible. There is something about those words that I find so soothing and comforting. Are you doing the Living Proof memory verse this year?

  8. I said White Christmas too, one of my favorites for sure! We left our family when we moved from Illinois. That was very hard. We only have ourselves here in California and of course Adam moved to Pittsburgh so moving wouldn't be too hard as long as Amber follows us!
