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. Best place you've been lately?
Myrtle Beach in November

2. What's something you should say yes to today? Or this week? Or even this year?
Getting fully involved in the Bible Study that's starting tonight (this is Tuesday).

3. Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in any way, shape, or form? If so tell us how. In Western cultures the color green is typically associated with jealousy, nature, good luck, and growth. What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word 'green'?
I don't really celebrate St. Patrick's unless I happen to remember it in the morning and put on something green.
The first thing is either grass or money when I hear green.

4. What's a product or service you love so much you'd happily be their spokesperson? Tell us what makes you such a fan.
The online resources of our library.  I love being able to get e-books and audio books for free.

5. March 14th is Pi Day. How are your math skills? What's the last thing you did that required math of any kind? And most importantly do you like pie? What's your favorite kind? With ice cream, whipped cream, or please hold the cream?
I'm good with addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.  Not much good with anything more.  The last thing I've done with math is probably my sister's checkbook and reports for work, oh and also figuring the sale price on some items I bought last night.  I do like some pies, yes.  My favorite pie is chocolate or coconut and they usually have meringue so you don't need the whipped cream.  If I'm having pumpkin pie, yes on whipped cream and if fruit pie, yes on ice cream.

6.  Insert your own random thought here.
I love my new lunch bag.  So much better then plastic bags from the grocery. 

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great dah.
