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

1.  Did you do anything 'memorable' this past weekend?
Hubby and I took a drive along the Ohio River. We went from home in Ohio, crossed the river into Kentucky, then drove a scenic route beside the river to Madison, Indiana. We are lunch and then drove back to Ohio and home. Unfortunately it rained most of the time, so I don't have pictures. But it was so nice to get away alone for a few hours.

2. Ronald Reagan is quoted as saying-

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."  

Your thoughts? Do you somehow acknowledge and appreciate the freedoms you enjoy? Did your upbringing contribute to that sense of appreciation? If you're a parent, are there specific things you do to pass on this sense of responsibility and appreciation to your own children in regard to the freedoms they enjoy?
I agree.  We have always taught our children to appreciate our country and also the men and women who have insured our continued freedom.

3. Loudest noise you've ever heard?
I have no idea. But probably my big mouth! lol

4. What was the last thing you ate that might be considered 'junk food'? Did you enjoy it?
A cupcake from the grocery's bakery. Yes, I did.

5. When was the last time you were somewhere the crowd felt 'packed in like sardines'?
In February when we went to Dixie Stampede. It was pretty crowded waiting in line to get in.

6. Are you organized when it comes to packing for a trip? Do you make a list weeks in advance or toss items in last minute? Are you a carry-on only sort of packer or do you need an entire suitcase for your shoes?
Sometimes I am. Hubby makes lists and we do kinda follow them. But mostly I am a last minute packer. However I do make sure I have everything on the list. It depends on where we're going as to how much I pack.

7. What was the last sporting event you attended in person? Did your team win? Did you care?
Probably a basketball or volleyball game of my girls. I don't remember who won.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Life is rather rough right now, but we are surviving. I just haven't had a lot of inclination to blog. I have been reading a lot of your blogs, but not commenting a whole lot. Maybe after this weekend I'll have more time and desire to blog more regularly. Thank you to those who have shown concern and I appreciate all your prayers. 


  1. Hugs to you Cathy. Sometimes there are hard seasons, and I pray you feel God's peace and comfort as you navigate this one.

  2. Enjoyed this as always.....So sorry to hear you are going through a rough patch....praying you feel God's direction and know His comfort and wisdom as you go through this time!

  3. Sorry I've been out of the loop as of late, Cathy...whatever you're facing, just know that I'll be praying for you!

  4. Sorry about the rain but it sounds like a nice adventure you took. ((HUGS))

  5. Long drives in the rain are the best. Sounds like a perfect day!
    I'll be praying for you.

  6. Cathy, I do understand about the times when the wind is out of your sails. I get those times for one reason or another, then just don't have a heart to blog. I'll be thinking of you and will say a prayer for you. God bless.

  7. Visiting from the Hodgepodge party, cupcakes from the bakery, good for you. On my rough days, weeks, hey, even months, I'd probably eat a cupcake a day. Don't take my advice though. Here's wishing that tomorrow feels better for you.

  8. Sounds like a long drive. Shame about the weather. I love cupcakes. I used to make them but now we have an empty nest I can't because I'd eat them all.

  9. I hope your "rough patch" of life will soon turn smooth again.


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
