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

Go visit Joyce at From This Side of the Pond to play along.

1. Have you ever been on a real sleigh ride? How about the warm weather version - a carriage ride?
I have not been on a real sleigh ride, but I have taken a carriage ride in Williamsburg, VA.

2. What's your policy on 'chain mail'...you know, the emails you receive that are often some sort of poem/blessing/good wish that ask you to send it on to 10 or 12 friends? Do you delete without opening, read and trash, read and trash and then worry you won't be blessed/lucky/protected? Do you delete the sender from your contacts or just go ahead and send the love onward?
I don't have a policy, but I don't do chain mail. If the poem or story is good, I'll forward it, but take off all the stuff about sending to so many people, good luck stuff, etc.

3. Who is your favorite character in any of the Christmas movies and why?
Betty Haynes (Rosemary Clooney) from White Christmas. Because she's pretty and she can sing and I just love that movie.

4. Share a favorite quote.
"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me". Erma Bombeck

5. What's your favorite holiday scent?
Vanilla or Apple Cinnamon

6. Does the Christmas season stress you out? In what way?
Some days yes and some days no. I love it when all the obligations are completed and I can just sit and relax and enjoy the decorations, my family and Christmas music and movies.

7. What's the best thing about your life right now?
My husband who keeps on loving me no matter what.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

What if the Wisemen were Wise women?

My husband used this in a sermon in 2008 and I posted it on 12/15/2008 & I still get hits on this in search engines, so thought I'd share it again as a random thought. Hope you enjoy it.

Ever wonder what it would’ve been like if the wise men had been women? When they arrived at the manger, you can bet they would have:
1.asked for directions;
2.arrived on time;
3.helped deliver the baby;
4.cleaned the stable;
5.brought practical gifts; and
6.made a casserole!

And a couple of our ladies added another one.
7. They would have made reservations ahead of time!


  1. White Christmas is a favorite around here too. And I love the Erma Bombeck quote-that's a good one!

  2. i love your quote :)
    and the Wise-Woman one, my pastor used it one Christmas too :)

  3. LOVE your answers ... and LOL at the Wise Women list!

    I love the Erma Bombeck quote ... I belong to a quilting list group, and one of the gals uses that quote as her signature. ;-)

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE White Christmas, too. It seems to be almost a forgotten Christmas movie, so I've asked DH to get that for me for Christmas. ;-)


  4. White Christmas is one of my all time favorites. Your #8 made me laugh! Can I borrow it to share at our ladies' Christmas meeting?

  5. # 8 is fantastic!! Good ideas too!

  6. Hi Cathy!! Just dropping by to say hi and I hope you are enjoying the holiday season!! Hope you are doing well!!

  7. loved your #8...very true. Your quote is great too. I love those scents too.

  8. Enjoyed your answers. I am with you on the emails. I love your random! I bet that was a sermon to remember.
    Hope you have a wonderful week!
    until next time... nel
