Wednesday Hodge Podge

Wednesday Hodgepodge, such a great way to meet and get to know other bloggers.   Joyce comes up with some interesting questions each week. 

1. How many times in your life have you moved house?

I could probably write an entire post on this question.  I lived in the same house from birth until I got married.
 Then in my first marriage we moved I believe it was fourteen times.  No we weren't in the military, somehow my husband seemed to enjoy moving. When we divorced the kids and I moved into an apartment for a year or so, until we could move into a house.  I wanted a house with a yard for them.  We lived there until I married Scott.  Then he and I have moved twice.  The house we're in now, we're buying and he says his next move with be when six men carry him out of a church horizontally.
I have helped numerous friends move and am now in the process of packing up my Mil's belongings, to get the house ready to sell.   She continues to live with us.  But she says in a year or so when her vision is restored she would like to move out on her on. 
*On that note, for you older bloggers that have lived in the same house twenty plus years.  Don't save "EVERYTHING" over the years.  We have found bill receipts that's over ten years old, empty boxes, worn out clothes, etc.  I could go on and on.  :)

2. What subject would you study if you had a year to devote to it?
I can think of three things I would really like to learn to do.   Quilt, play the piano, and speak Spanish.  But to choose one of those I think it would be to learn Spanish, so when I'm in Wal-mart I could understand what some others are saying.

3. What in this world breaks your heart?
Knowing that I have family and friends that haven't accepted Jesus as their Saviour.  And that if He came back right now or it was their time to go they would spend eternity in hell.

4. What is one item that symbolizes the times in which we live? Why?
My first thought was the disrespect teen-agers has.  But that's not an item.  Technology but it would have to break down to the cell phone.  Some people just think they can't live without them.  That they would literally die.

5. Share a favorite bumper sticker or t-shirt slogan.
The only one I can think of is one our Pastor says alot.   It's not about us but it's about Him.
6. How do you like your spaghetti?
I think I have answered this one somewhere before.  I eat my spaghetti with ketchup instead of spaghetti sauce.  Somehow when I was younger that's how my Grandmother made it for me and it has stuck. 
7. What is one piece of advice you would give a recent, or soon to be recent, graduate?
Put God first and everything else will fall in place.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I go back to the Doctor in the morning at 9:30 for the results of my procedure last week.  Thank ya'll so much for your prayers.  I've heard people say they can feel when people are praying for them, and this week I have definetly felt ya'lls prayers. 


  1. love your answer to #7. And I'm still praying for good news from the doctor! ;-)

  2. #7-That's good advice for all of us : )

  3. Your heartbreak answer tops them all. After I had published my post, I thought, "But all of those things are nothing compared to eternity separated from Christ!"

    I dread having to go through my parents' things when they pass away. So much of it plain old worthless junk! The Great Depression left its mark on that generation, for sure.

    Hoping for peace in your heart regardless what the doctor says.

  4. Great advice to grads and I've never heard of eating ketchup on spaghetti. Interesting.

  5. Yes, your answer to #7 is the BEST! There is no greater heart breaker for sure!

    Praying for a good report for you today. Blessings my friend!

  6. Wow...that's a LOT of moves! And I thought our 7 moves was a bunch! I don't really care too much for moving...especially now that I'm getting 'older'. Just takes so much out of you, but I do enjoy setting up the house. You can bet that I'll be praying for good news for you...have FAITH! :)

  7. I'm with your husband...I never want to move again! Your graduate advice is great advice for all of us.

  8. Very good answers! Thanks for sharing! I feel for you in going thru your MIL stuff. I had to do that with my moms after she passed and am still finding stuff. Living thru the Depression did have quite an effect on them.
    until next time... nel

  9. I have long wanted to learn how to play the piano. I think when my son graduates from high school, I might take up either keyboarding or violin lessons.

  10. That's a lot of moves. Ketchup is very different!

  11. Great life has also a memorable day.its my lovely day when i was 7 year old and my mom organize a birthday party...
