Wednesday Hodgepodge

It's Wednesday, that means that Joyce has likely come up with some great questions and we've all come up with some great answers.  Join us, click on the button above.

1. When were you last 'on a mountaintop'?  You may answer in the literal or figurative sense.

Last July when Hubby surprised me for my 60th birthday by having our two children and their families join us at the Gaylord Resort in Grapevine, Texas.  It was such a wonderful time and I think of it often.

  2.  Do you establish and maintain a strict budget in your household?  What is one piece of financial advice you would offer someone just starting out on their own?
Sort of, kind of..........we do not budget every little item but things like savings and investments, YES! most definitely.

 My piece of advise........
If you have a credit card(s) make sure you manage it rather than it managing you.  I've seen so, so many young couples get into serious trouble with a piece of plastic.  It can have devastating effects that you spend the rest of your life trying to recover from.
  3.  Cherries-yay or nay?  Cherry pie, cherry cola, black forest cake, or a scoop of Ben and Jerry's Cherries Garcia...pick one. 

I can take them or leave them, but if offered, I'd take a piece of warm cherry pie.

  4.  Should you ever discuss religion or politics with people you don't know?
It's probably a pretty good idea to steer clear of such discussions but if handled respectfully, one would think it would be possible.  And, for Christians, it could well be a witnessing opportunity.

  5.  When you take a road trip do you prefer to be the driver or the passenger?  Where were you headed on your last road trip?
I am usually a passenger for most of the trip, but I do drive some and give Hubby a break.  Our last road trip was in mid-December when we went to see our daughter in Dodge City, Kansas.  We have several road trips planned beginning in April, the first of which is Savannah. ~can't wait~

  6. If we peeked inside your closet, what color would we say is most prevalent?
White would likely jump out at you just because it is so stark and bright and I have a white blouse of every style and description.  I love white blouses!  But, I have a smattering of all kinds of colors.

7. Who's your favorite senior citizen and why are they special?

Billy Graham, hands down!  At the age of 97, he has been referred to as "the Pope of Protestant America."  He has preached to more people than any other evangelist and has managed to avoid any type of scandel during his ministry.  He has been described as non-judgmental, sincere, innocent and accepting.  He has sown eternal seeds as he has advanced the kingdom of God through his ministry.  I'd say that's special indeed!!!

  8.  Insert your own random thought here. 
 Easter is only 5 1/2 weeks away and the first day of Spring is one month from today.  However, we are still having some very wet and cold weather here in NE La. and I'm more than ready for Spring.  We've had such a wet winter and cold and wet just do not go together as far as I'm concerned.  Yesterday was a gorgeous day, full of sunshine and warmer temps.  Today, not so much, cooler and more rain on the horizon. (and I know, some of you guys have endured all kinds of real winter with snow, snow and more snow)  I'm pulling out my Easter decor, thinking warm thoughts and getting ready to greet Spring with arms wide open!

  1. Billy Graham is a wonderful example. If only we all could deal with people from all walks of life the way he has!

  2. I have the most color white too! Same answer as you. Yes, let's hope for sun and warmth in the south soon! I'm ready!

  3. Great answer-Billy Graham a wonderful example.

  4. There's a little thing a pastor friend of ours says.....of course I can't remember all of it, but the gist is we are the only Bible some people will ever read......makes me think!

    I love Billy Graham

    Sadly I think the color you would see mostly in my closet is black. I love white blouses, but I tend to go to black for some reason!

    Have a great day!

  5. Billy Graham is an excellent answer to #7. I have a lot of white tops in my closet, too ... white is so versatile.

  6. Good morning....yes. Billy Graham is a great example for this question. I love white on others, not so much on my. I don't think I have even one plain white top or blouse...weird now that I think of it, haha. Enjoy your day!

  7. Billy Graham! Yes! I attended one of his Baltimore crusades as a reen. Hs message is always simple, timely truth.

  8. I didn't think of warming the cherry pie. I might have to rethink my answer.

  9. I can't believe that Easter is so close! Like you, sure hope it warms up by then! I have always loved and admired Billy Graham...used to watch him on TV all the time!

  10. I can't believe that Easter is so close! Like you, sure hope it warms up by then! I have always loved and admired Billy Graham...used to watch him on TV all the time!

  11. Bill Graham is a very admirable man living daily for Jesus. He is such a light to this dark world. I loved that last quote! We should all bring sunshine to those around us! :)

  12. Love Bill Graham so much. I saw him preach when I was about 12 or 13, it was really something. He certainly is a fine example of living for Christ.

    Enjoyed my visit today...and I too love a crisp white blouse !


  13. I agree, credit cards can control your life and that is great advice.
    White, now that is awesome and it's such a crisp look. I'm not ready for Easter. Here is another year moving by too quickly.

  14. You always have such cute graphics at the end of your posts. :)

    I'm ready for spring here too! We had another chilly day today (in the 40s). It's been going back and forth between 40s and 70s it seems

  15. Billy Graham, what a great answer! Spring is on its way, even if it doesn't feel like it here ;)

  16. Why of course, Billy Graham. Why didn't I think of that? I can read your frustration with this damp cool winter. When it's 103 degrees this summer, I'm going to remind of this. LOL

  17. What a great answer - Billy Graham. You can't get much better than him. Enjoyed all of your answers!
    until next time...nel


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
