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

Here is a message from our Hodgepodge sponsor, Joyce at From This Side of the Pond:

Winter is plodding along here on the East Coast. Guess it's a good thing we have the Hodgepodge to keep our brains engaged.

You use your brain for the Hodgepodge, don't you?

We've got quite the party going on here every Wednesday, and I do try my best to get around to everyone who participates. Some weeks I don't quite make it, and some weeks it takes me until the weekend to get there, but I do try my best to eventually make it around to everyone. I also realize most people won't hop to 60 or 70 links, but I want to encourage you to visit at least the two or three who post just before/after you. That way everyone has company and feels welcome.

Hey, the Hodgepodge is nothing if not friendly. See ya back here tomorrow to share answers-

Now let's get on to the Hodgepodge:


1.  Chinese New Year will be celebrated on February 10th, and 2013 is the year of the snake. When did you last see a snake?  Are you okay around snakes or do they give you the shivers? 
No I am not okay with snakes.  They scare me to death.  It's been awhile since I've seen one and I'd just as soon not ever seen one again.
2. The color red in Chinese culture usually means good luck.  Do you believe in luck? 
No, I don't believe in luck. I believe everything that happens is under the direction or permission of God.   However, I do love the color red.
3. sledding-ice skating-building a snowman...if given a choice, which activity would you choose?  Which of the three have you done most recently?  
Ice Skating and it's probably been about 12-15 years since I did that.
4.  Ralph Waldo Emerson is credited as saying, "The years teach much which the days never knew."  Where have you seen this quote played out in your own life?  
I'm not sure I even know what that means.

5. When was the last time you ate a cupcake?  
Probably sometime during our last Bible Study (last fall).  We have a couple ladies who bring in cupcakes sometimes and I probably had one.
6. What's something you can't say no to?  
Chocolate Chip Cookies
7.  Are you a doodler?  
Yes, sometimes. But not as much as my mom is.
8.  Insert your own random thought here. 
Today is my baby brother's birthday.  He is 50 years old!  Oh my goodness we are now all at least 50 years old.  I cannot believe it!  Man we are OLD!!  Happy Birthday dear brother!!


  1. You are not old at all! Haven't you heard that 50 is the new 30! Love your answer to #2.

  2. I couldn't wrap my head around #4 either, so I came up with my own quote. : )

  3. I agree with LynnMarie! If 60 is the new 40 (and since I'm > 60 now, I believe that to be true), then 50 has to be the new 30.

    I agree with your answer on #2.

  4. Hope your brother has a great birthday celebration! My hubby turns 50 in April...he's not looking forward to it, either!

  5. Your not old you are just hitting your prime. Happy birthday to your vrothyer.

  6. Glad I wasnt the only one who doesnt understand the quote :)

    HAHA - loved the "I believe in red" :)

    Happy Birthday to your brother. Mine is creeping up to the big 5-0 soon... I'll rub it in :)

  7. First, You are not OLD! Red is my favorite color and I am petrified of snakes!

  8. Me too, I am often late reading Wednesdays Hodgepodge. I hope your brother has a wonderful Birthday! I wouldn't mind being 50 again.....

  9. Fifty's not so bad. And it's definitely NOT old : ) Hope he has a great day!

  10. 50 may be the new 30 but it sure doesn't feel like it neither does 56 - just sayin' not that I am that old or anything. lolol Tell your bro Happy Birthday!
    until next time...nel

  11. Happy Birthday to your brother!!!

  12. My mother-in-law always corrects a person if he/she says something was lucky. She prefers to say blessed. Me too. :)

  13. Happy birthday to your baby brother!! I think it is a good idea to look at a few blogs before and after yours. Responses make you feel good!
