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

From this Side of the Pond

1. The Hodgepodge lands on June 14th this week, Flag Day in the US of A. Do you fly your country's flag at
home? Sometimes, often, or every single day? Have you ever visited the city of Brotherly Love (Philadelphia)? Did you make a point of seeing The Betsy Ross House? Have you ever made a trip to Baltimore? If so, was Fort McHenry on your itinerary? (where Francis Scott Key was inspired to write The Star Spangled Banner)
Yes, we do fly the flag here most of the summer. No I've never been to Philadelphia nor Baltimore.  However I do hope to someday go to both and see both of those historic places.

2. Red flag or white flag? Which have you encountered most recently? Explain.
I would hope I woyld choose the white flag more often. I want to be a person of peace whenever possible.

3. Are you a stay in the car listen to the end of a song kind of person? What kind of person is that?
Depends on the song. If I really love it I'll sit there especially if I haven't heard it for awhile.

4. What are some of the traits or qualities you think a good dad possesses? In other words, what makes a good dad? What's an expression you associate with your father?
Unconditional love, patience, encouragement, good sense of humor. I can't think of a particular expression. But when I think of my father I think of music. My father lived the hymns and Southern Gospel music. He was always singing and or listening to it. Even when his dementia was getting pretty bad! He still knew the words to those songs. He taught me to love them well also.

5. What's one rule you always disagreed with while growing up? Is that rule somehow still part of your adult life? Is that a good or bad thing?
Can't think of a thing. 

6. Insert your own random thought here.
Heading into work now. Today we'll be training all day on a brand new software system. Hope I'm not getting too old to learn it. Guess I'll find out soon. 😊


  1. New software-yikes! I can do it, but it definitely takes longer to stick : ) Good luck!

  2. I hope things go well with learning the new software. Progress... gotta' love it. Ha!

  3. Good luck with learning the new software. They keep us on our toes, that's for sure!

  4. Oh, good luck with the software training. I remember those days well. I love your header. Truth!!

  5. Hope all goes well with the new software. At my age, I don't like change.

  6. What great memories to have of your dad! Some of my best ones of my dad are of him singing hymns in church on Easter. Loved hearing his deep voice boom out "Up from the grave He arose!"

  7. My granddaddy loved southern gospel and Lawrence Welk. My grandmother loved hymns and Elvis. LOL Between them and my parents, it's no wonder I love music as much as I do. I have a playlist on Spotify of southern gospel that I listen to and think of granddaddy.

  8. What a blessing that your dad stored those hymns in his heart and was able to sing them all those years! Hope your new software learning went well :)

  9. Enjoyed reading your answers to Joyce's questions. Hope your training went well.
