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 go and join Joyce in all the fun (after you read mine and hopefully comment).

1. What question do you often ask yourself?
Do I really want to eat that?

2. Do you grow roses? What's your favorite color of rose?  Ever been given a dozen roses?  Where was the prettiest rose or rose garden you remember seeing?
No, I don't grow roses.  My favorite color rose is red.  Yes, I have. When I was growing up we had red climbing roses that grew around our back porch on a split rail fence.  I loved them! I don't think I've ever seen roses that were any prettier than those.

3. Do you read the freshness dates on grocery store products?  Will you use eggs past their 'use by' date?  Take medication that's expired? Buy a dented can?
Yes, I do read the dates.  Yes, I will use eggs beyond the date.  I have taken medicine beyond the expiration date, but I don't like too.  I will buy a dented can, but I prefer not too.  I do not like to drink milk or eat bread beyond the expiration date.

4. Should athletes be role models?
I think so.  That's why I hate seeing professional baseball players chewing tobacco or dipping snuff.

5. Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay of Nepal became the first explorers to reach the top of Mt. Everest on this date (May 29) back in 1953. What's something you hope to achieve in your lifetime?

6. What would you do if you had twenty acres of land and the money to develop it any way you choose?
I guess it would depend on where it was.  If it was on the beach, I'd build a condo and live there and my family could visit and use the extra side whenever they wanted.

7. If I invite you to a party with a 7 PM start time, what time will I actually see you there?
Probably 7PM.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
I can't wait until November to get to see this again. 

Just before sunrise at Myrtle Beach

The sun just tipping up over the horizon!
Here's a post to humble this mama's heart and to make me so proud, I could pop my buttons!


  1. That was such a sweet heartfelt post your daughter wrote! I'm sure it does your mama heart good : )

  2. It sounds like everyone's got similar ideas for #6. ;-)

    I too am anxiously awaiting seeing the sun come up on the ocean. ;-)

  3. We think alike!! Retirement is what I would have put too!!! and I'd do the same with the land on the beach! :)

  4. Beautiful, beautiful photos!

  5. Retirement is a great achievement to strive for!

    What a beautiful, heart-felt post! I can totally relate, having had a son who tried our patience on so many levels, (giving us many sleepless nights and gray hairs as a teen), but finally turned the corner and became a young man I'm so proud of!

  6. Retirement is a good goal, I'm sure you will achieve it. A lot of us want to be near our kids on a lot of land and your trip looks like it will be beautiful.

  7. Wow, that is a beautiful sunrise! Definitely worth getting up early for :)

  8. Wonderful tribute from your daughter! You must be very proud of her! I ask myself the same question about do I really want to eat that! lol..Beautiful beach pics! Sunrise is always so spectacular!

  9. Retirement is the best especially when you have the time to spend with family We love it!

  10. Enjoyed your answers Cathy. I feel the same way about many of them.

  11. Chewing tobacco/snuff is absolutely disgusting - I lose so much respect for anyone who uses it, I don't care how good of an athlete they are.

  12. What a great question to ask yourself - I am going to do that too!


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
