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 Hodgepodge Button above to join in with all the Wednesday Hodgepodge Fun.

1. Share your Christmas Eve traditions.
We've always gone to my dad and mom's house for Christmas Eve and will be doing that again this year.  We have sandwiches and desserts and make the kids wait until after we've eaten before they can open gifts.  My younger sister always takes her time eating so they have to wait longer before they can open them.  It kills them and cracks all of us up.  Then we open gifts and just have a good time.

2. What was the best book you read in 2010? (we're not going to include The Bible here)
A Path Less Traveled by Cathy Bryant.  See my review here.

3. Do you have pets and if so do you allow them on the furniture?
Yes, we have a dog and yes she is allowed on the furniture.

4. What event from 2010 are you most thankful for?
My oldest daughter graduating High School and my youngest daughter graduating Jr. High.

5. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before.
Took my oldest to college.

6. Brussel sprouts...friend or foe?

7. Who would you nominate for man/woman of the year?
My husband, because he puts up with all 3 of us girls with such patience!  Actually 4 girls because even the dog is a girl! ha!

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Remember if we can trust God with our eternity, we can certainly trust Him with our today!  That seems to be a recurring theme in my life right now! (By the way, this thought did not originate with me.  I read it somewhere else recently and it has really struck a chord with me)


  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE #8. That's a lesson that unfortunately I need to be reminded of from time to time.

    Enjoy these last few weeks leading up to Christmas!

  2. I feel your hubby's pain: I'm the only female (not counting the dogs) in a house of 4 (well, now 5 counting FES) males. Hopefully I can make it through the next couple of weeks until OS & MS go back to school!

  3. Love your random thought... I need to write that down as a reminder myself!!!

    Do we do that to kids on purpose? Take our time eating when you KNOW they are just so anxious to rip into gifts! haha!!!!

    I'm not sure I've ever ate a brussel sprout... hmmm...

  4. Wonderful answers. We do the same thing with the kids in my man's family, although it is becoming less excruciating for them since they are all teenagers!

    Love your #8!

  5. Really like your random thought. It is so true, thanks for the reminder.

  6. I like your random thought.

    Have fun on Christmas Eve!

    Merry Christmas!!

  7. Love your hodgepodge list!! #8 is the BEST! (I may have to quote you on my blog with that one sometime). : ))

    Wishing you and yours a most joyous Christmas and abundantly blessed 2011, Cathy!

    Love and Big Christmas Hugs!

  8. Love how your younger sister takes her time eating so gift opening is delayed. I can feel the anxiety from here. ahaha. Awesome random thought. I'm definitely writing that one down for future use. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family! May 2011 be your best year ever. Blessings, SusanD

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  12. Your hubs and my hubs are in the same boat : )

    I love your random thought and its a good word for today....my oldest is making a three hour drive today and I always feel anxious when they're on the road...

    Happy Christmas to you and your family!

  13. Sounds like a fun Christmas Eve.
    Taking a child to college, that's a big deal for sure. Loved reading your answers. Merry Christmas.
