Wednesday Hodgepodge

It's good to be back with the Hodgepodge this week.  I was gone last week and missed linking up but looks like Joyce has some "doozy" questions for us this week.  So, here goes nothing.........

 1. March is known as the windy month. Which of the following phrases best fits your March so far...'throw caution to the wind', 'three sheets to the wind', 'run like the wind', or 'see which way the wind blows'?
Well, well, well.........a mighty deep subject for a shallow mind, but I can't say that any of these fit my March so far and there's only a few more days left in the month and doubtful that any of them will.  Goodness, that's a pitiful answer, but it's the truth.
2. Your favorite green food? Your favorite dish made with your favorite green food?
Awe, give me some broccoli any way it can be fixed and I'm a happy gal.  But, a Broccoli and Rice Casserole is one of my favorite, especially fixed with Cajun seasoning. ~yum~
3. Ever been locked out of your home-car-office-anywhere? Do tell!
Well, which time do you want to know about????  It's probably only been about a year and it's happened numerous times with the car and house.  Our back door has a "crazy lock" on it and you must intentionally unlock it from the inside or it will automatically lock when you close.  So, so aggravating!  I've always been able to get someone to my rescue pretty quickly. ~thank goodness~
4. Yoda, Kermit, Shrek, The Wicked Witch of the West, Oscar the Grouch, The Grinch, or Mike Wasowski (Monsters Inc.)...of the green characters listed, which one's your favorite and why?

 Definitely Oscar the Grouch because he is who my kids grew up loving.  They both loved Sesame Street and Oscar was their favorite. ~talk about memories~

5. "The first task of a leader is to keep hope alive."~Joe Batten Do you agree? Why or why not? 
I definitely agree.  Without hope life can seem almost worthless at times. Individuals and businesses (large or small) all need hope and it can be challenging at times to keep it alive.  Hope gives purpose and a reason to "keep on keeping on."  
6. Share a favorite song with an emotion in it's title.
Since Easter is just around the corner I immediately thought of the song, "I've Just Seen Jesus."  There is no one who sings it with more emotion than Sandi Patti and Larnelle Harris.  It will raise the hair on your head and give you goose bumps.  And, if you do not believe me, sit back and take a listen.
7. What's a road trip you'd like to take?
  Well, Hubby would like for us to take a l-o-n-g road trip to Montana, Wyoming and parts unknown.  I can't say that long road trips excite me, but on a shorter note, I'm thinking a road trip to San Antonio would be fun.

8. Insert your own random thought here. 

Bridget wasn't  feeling well this past Sunday so their pastor's wife came by and picked up Clancy and took him to church with them.  Our SIL is out of town with his job so there wasn't anyone to get him to church otherwise and Clancy loves church.  Heidi, the pastor's wife, told Bridget that when church was over that Clancy headed up on the podium and announced to those left in the santuary that he was about to pray.  And, he did!  As you can tell from the picture, he meant business! ~so precious~ I'm wondering if he's a "budding" cowboy "preacher man."

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. So sweet! My mom likes to tell the story of my brother going forward in church when the invitation was made. They didn't belong to that church, but ended up joining : ) When the Spirit moves, right?

  2. I chose broccoli as well. Great picture. Our grandchildren enjoy church as well.

  3. LOVED your song choice. But that picture of Clancy is just precious! Enjoy your day Lea!

  5. Oh my, that photo of Clancy is so adorable...I love that he wants to go to church...building a lasting relationship with God :-)


  6. That is just the sweetest about your little grandson! I love how he has a heart for God! Sandi Patti and Larnelle Harris can sure belt that song out of my favs!

  7. Yum - broccoli and rice casserole!

    DH and I talk about taking a leisurely road trip to Seattle (stopping at all the National Parks along the way), getting on a cruise to Alaska, and taking the glass-domed mountain railway back to the US. I don't know that I could stand to be away from home that long, and I definitely know that I wouldn't be able to be away from DD and my Ts that long ... but it would be a fabulous trip! Maybe one of these days.

  8. Oh Lea, that is the sweetest picture of Clancy. What a blessing to be in a church where he feels comfortable enough to do that. Such a blessing! And yes, he just could very well be a Cowboy Preacher Man in the making. It will be exciting to see how God continues to work in this tender heart.

  9. Wonderful picture of your grandson praying! Oh that this is an indication of his relationship to the Lord all the days of his life!!! The video of Larnelle Harris and Sandi Patty is one of my favorites. Thank you for kick-starting my personal celebration of the Easter season with this song!

  10. I enjoyed your Hodge Podge! I didn't get around to doing mine this week. Sweet pic of your praying grandson!

  11. Oscar the Grouch. LOL! I haven't thought about him for a while.

  12. That is the sweetest story about Clancy. I love when young children have to much faith!

  13. I'm so glad I came over to 'catch up'... I've been mia for a few weeks on reading blogs. Yours are so fun and always interesting Lea!

    I LOVE what you did with the tops you got. You have a real sense of style and it's adorable how you put it all together.

    LOVE Sandy Patty & Larnell singing that song, you are right, it gives you goosebumps. Years ago when we lived in Dallas and went to Prestonwood, they came and did a concert. It was absolutely fantastic!

    Good for Clancy - he may become a real prayer warrior, wouldn't that be great!

    Glad to catch up tonight...

  14. #6 - I've just Seen Jesus ~~ An Absolute Favorite of mine!! And those two sing it like nobody else!! Amen for Clancy :) Blessings, Cindy

  15. Oh, such a sweet boy praying his little heart out! Heading back to listed to your video link. Have a great new week!


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!
