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

I know I've been gone awhile, but I thought I'd play along with the Hodgepodge today.

1. Are you watching the Olympics? Your favorite summer Olympic event? I read recently a list of the most iconic Olympic moments in history...what stands out in your mind as a great moment from some past summer Olympic games?
Yes, I'm watching.  Gymnastics is my favorite.  One of my favorites is the 1996 Olympics when Kerri Scruggs landed her vault on her injured ankle.  The whole team was so awesome that year.

2. Have you ever been to Rio? How about the place that started it all-Greece? Have you ever been to any of the Olympic Games in person? Is that something you'd like to do? Have you ever met an Olympian in person?
No, I've never been to Rio or Greece.  I've never been to the games in person, and yes, I'd like to. No, I've never met an Olympian.

3. The ball's in their court (tennis), cross the finish line (track and field), on target (archery), make a splash (diving), on a roll (gymnastics), out of one's depth (swimming)...which Olympic-related idiom best applies to your life right now? Explain.
Cross the finish line.  That is what I'm trying to do in this cancer fight.  Chemo is done and now comes surgery and then radiation.  I've about got it licked.  Prayers for surgery next Tuesday would be much appreciated.

4. What have you earned a 'gold medal' in recently?
Can't think of a thing right now.

5. What is it (or who is it) that motivates you to eat right, exercise, and do what you can to be healthy?
Cancer has motivated me to want to take better care of myself in the future.

6. Are you young at heart or an old soul? Explain.
I'm a bit of each.

7. It's National S'mores Day (August 10th)...are you a fan? Will you celebrate with a s'more today?\
Not really...I like all the components, but not together.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I've been surprised how much I've enjoyed the swimming events so far this year.  I've never watched them in the past very much.  Also love the volleyball!


  1. So nice to see you here today Cathy! I think you're worthy of a gold medal in your fight to beat cancer. You're in my prayers as you move into this next phase of treatment. xo

  2. i agree with Joyce. I think a gold medal is in order as you fight the battle with cancer. I am a survivor and I'm trusting the Lord has it in His court to take care of you.

  3. I had forgot about Kerri Scruggs and her injured ankle. That truly was a wonderful time, seeing such strength of character and determination.

    I can tell you that your Gold Medal is your perseverance and trust in the Lord through the cancer battle!! I'm praying your surgery next Tuesday goes well!

  4. Thrilled to have you join us today, Cathy! You know I'll be lifting you up in prayer as you undergo surgery next week. You've got this...and so does God!

  5. Praying for your surgery right now Cathy. May God carry you through.

  6. I'd like to join the others in saying how great it is to have you participating The Hodgepodge today. I also share their sentiments that you deserve a gold medal for completing chemo! I'll be praying for you as you move forward with your surgery and radiation treatments. Hang in there!

  7. So glad you played along today! You have been, and will remain, in my thoughts and prayers! And YES to a gold metal for completing chemo!

  8. You will be added to my prayer list, stay strong in your fight! You do deserve that gold medal. Godspeed on your journey to become cancer free.

  9. I'm just now getting caught up on my blog reading and just now realize that you've had your surgery. I wish I would have known so I could have been praying. But it's ok ... you are in my prayers and God knows the details of where you are in your journey. I will be praying for a quick and easy recovery, my friend.

  10. I really enjoyed watching the Olympics this summer. Praying all went well, I haven't been around much lately. Sending love your way.....
