The Hodgepodge is my Wednesday "go to" for blogging. I try to post MWF and that can get to be a lot, so I'm thankful for Joyce's questions each Wed. I may have to rack my brain thinking of answers but at least I don't have to rack it thinking up a post in it's entirety. So, that's a "win win" in my book. Thanks Joyce for your dedication to the HP !
1. What's changed in your life, home, or community since your last birthday?
Yes, I do like and I do listen to classical music. I'm pretty sure that I am one of a few these days, but my parents loved classical music and played it daily on our stereo and it lulled me to sleep most nights of my young years. I absolutely love Moonlight Sonata by Beethovan!
Oh, this required no thought..........Lord Change Me by Evelyn Christenson had such a powerful impact upon my life. I read it back in 1978 and to this very day I often think back on the truths of this book. It is all about our looking at ourselves for the changes that need to be made instead of thinking it's everyone else that needs to change in order for us to be the person God intends for us to be. It applies to every aspect of our lives, our marriages, our children, our friendships, our employers/employees, etc. And, for me,when I applied this truth, it had a profound touch upon my life. And, it's something that I have to constantly remind myself of everyday. I cannot recommend this book enough and there is a wonderful study guide that goes along with it. I have led two studies on the book many moons ago. It is a very old book but its truths are timeless!
I think it is absolutely RIDICULOUS and such an embarrassment. And, I scratch my head in utter amazement that someone with this attitude is allowed to remain on the team. I.don't.get.it!!!!
I have lots of patience with people who are doing their very best but still not quite making the mark. I encountered a cashier yesterday that definitely required a lot of my patience and I gladly gave it to her. I lack a lot of patience when it comes to people who absolutely ignore RSVP. I mean, that is not put on an invitation for one's health, it is important in the planning of whatever event the invitation is concerning. ~I'll leave it at that~
