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

It's time for the Wednesday Hodgepodge again.  Thanks Joyce!

1. It's fall. Y'all. My favorite season of the year! What's something you love to do this time of year that makes you feel it's officially fall? And unrelated to that, do you ever say-'y'all'?
Eat chili made by my hubby and wear a hooded sweatshirt. And yes, I use the word Y'all.  I love to use it and I love to hear it used.  See, I think I'm really a southern girl at heart.

2. When did you last have a falling out with someone? Has it been resolved?
Won't share here, but I think all is resolved.

 3. A song you love with the word 'fall' in it's title?
"I Fall to Pieces", by Patsy Cline.  See I told you I'm a southern girl at heart, or maybe I'm just a hillbilly.  lol

4. What's something you've recently let 'fall by the wayside?'
My blog.  Just too much going on in life right now to keep up all the time.  I try to read some most days, but if it weren't for the Hodgepodge, I'm afraid, there wouldn't be much activity here.  

5. When did you last attend an event, read a book, watch a movie, try a new recipe, or visit a shop-town-tourist attraction that fell short of your expectations? In what way?
Kelli and I went to see Disney's Planes 2 while it was out in the theater this summer.  I have to say, I was a little disappointed in it.  It wasn't horrible, but it was not near as good as the first Planes or the 2 Cars movies.

6. Describe a time you said or thought, 'The apple doesn't fall far from the tree."
That could be said about our oldest daughter, even though she's adopted.  She is so much like her daddy, it's almost scary.  I love it! 

7. Was today better than yesterday? Why or why not?
So far, I would say yes.  Although neither day was too bad.  Actually they have both been pretty good.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
We found out when mom was in the hospital this last time, that she has colon cancer.  We go tomorrow (Wednesday, as I'm answering these on Tuesday afternoon) to see an oncologist.  Continued prayers would be appreciated.


  1. I thought I'd be the only one who used I Fall to Pieces by Patsy Cline!

    Oh no, Cathy ... I'm so sorry to hear that about your mom. Praying for you, dear one!

  2. So very sorry to hear about your mom's diagnosis, Cathy. Have no doubt that I will be praying for her full recovery. God has this!

  3. Oh so sorry to hear about your mom's diagnosis Cathy. I will continue to keep her in my prayers.

  4. Oh Cathy I am so sorry to hear about your mom. Praying for wisdom for the doctors who will be involved in this, and for strength for your mom and all of you as you deal with it all.

    LOVE LOVE Patsy Cline!

  5. I hope your Mom makes a speedy recovery. Colon cancer can be cured.

  6. I am all about chili season and hooded sweatshirts! So so sorry to read about your mother. That must have been a terrible shock! Sending up a prayer for your family. ((HUGS))

  7. Sorry to hear about your mom's diagnosis, but they can do wonders, these days. I'll be praying!
    I like 'I Fall To Pieces', too. An oldie but a goodie :)

  8. It's so easy to allow a blog to fall by the wayside. My summer was so busy I hardly got to post at all. Besides watching baseball in the evening was always more tempting and relaxing than making a post. :)

  9. Sorry to hear that about your mom. I will send up continued prayers. I do love Patsy Cline! What a treasure she was.

  10. Oh, so, so sorry about your Mom. Praying it will be contained and she can be 100% cured.

    How funny, our adopted Granddaughter is just like our son as well. Isn't that neat how that happens.

    Hugs to you!

  11. I'm sorry to hear about your mom, Cathy. My dad had colon cancer at age 63 and lived another 30 years. And medicine is always advancing. Prayers for you all.

  12. You know Trace Adkins and Blake Shelton say a song that said "We've all got a hillbilly bone down deep inside."

    *Little secret....a cousin of mine is one of the writers of that song so I guess hillbilly is definitely in my family. lol


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
