Another Hodgepodge Wednesday....


1. Do you have an interest in learning about your family's heritage? Why or why not? If you know a little bit about your roots, share an interesting piece of trivia or a fun fact about someone who goes way back on your family tree.
I wish I had more time to really research my family's heritage. I think it's so interesting...but very time consuming.  One of my Grandfathers,Great Great Greats (not sure how many greats) William Herndon was Abraham Lincolns law Partner and the office in Illinois is still standing.

2. Branch Rickey, the baseball exec credited with signing Jackie Robinson, is quoted as saying-

"Luck is the residue of design."
Agree or disagree? Why?
Not a believer in luck....nothing by chance....all God's design :-)

3. In the town where you currently reside, what's your favorite green space?
  That would be in my very own backyard. I love sitting out there surrounded by blue skies and birds everywhere.

4. Who is your favorite comedian? Jeanne Robertson... I love her comedy!

5. March is National Nutrition Month, and almost everyone needs to improve their diet in some way.  What about you? How can you improve your nutrition on a daily basis? Will you try?
 I have recently started eating..lean protein and veggies, no sugar, flour, pasta..... and always trying to move more.

6. Which of these green expressions have you 'experienced' in recent weeks -green with envy, green thumb, green around the gills, or give the green light? Explain.
Green thumb...did some trimming around the yard yesterday and I'm ready to plant some flowers!

7. Where is one place you don't mind waiting?
   I never mind waiting for a baby to enter the world!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Are you and your shadow the same.....
  Wouldn't it do more for our faith if we not only claimed it, but lived it? Spoke it? Are we speaking to our family members in love?  Would our language reflect our faith? Are we showing others what our faith looks like when things aren't running smoothly? Do your words to and about others reflect it?  If you scrolled through your Facebook page.....well, you get the idea...

Colossians 3:5-17

5So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. 6Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming.b 7You used to do these things when your life was still part of this world. 8But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. 9Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds. 10Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. 11In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile,c circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized,d slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us.
12Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13Make allowance for each others faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. 14Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. 15And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
16Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. 17And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.

    Yes, that about covers it...
 from God's Word ...
 I am in agreement and try to live it in all I do..
My life hasn't always reflected it, I pray it does now..
You ?
Walking the talk is what echos from my heart today....


  1. Oh, if we only lived that scripture! I must confess that I am often guilty, guilty, guilty! More Grace!

  2. I try. But, sometimes Satan gets in there, and that is when
    I say "I rebuke you in the name of Jesus". Yes, I try.
