A Peaceful Hodgepodge



It's another Wednesday, the Wednesday after the most important Presidential election in the history of our country, but our Joyce, didn't let that stand in her way.  She provides us questions and we provide the answers.  Take a break from the news and enjoy these questions and answers.

1. How do you define peace? 

A tranquil feeling, one that I'm praying for our nation to know in the days ahead. 

And, love this collage of words about peace



2. November 3rd is Election Day in the US of A, but did you know it's also National Sandwich Day? Let's vote, shall we? egg salad or tuna salad? chicken salad or grilled chicken on a bun? peanut butter and jelly or a bagel with cream cheese? turkey and swiss or ham and cheddar? grilled cheese or pimento cheese? roast beef-corned beef-or make mine veggie? 



I guess there is a day for EVERYTHING!  I'll pass on either egg or tuna salad if I have a choice. I'll take chicken salad or grilled chicken on a bun.  But, PLEASE, do not put any.kind.of.fruit in my chicken salad. ~grin~ No peanut butter and jelly or me but yes to a bagel with cream cheese. Definitely turkey and swiss over ham and cheddar and grilled cheese or pimento will be fine.  And, once again, I'll pass on roast beef, corned beef or veggie. I'm really quite the sandwich gal, I eat a lot of them and could probably live on them. 

3. When did you last say (or feel) 'no rest for the weary'? 

I do believe that I said those actual words to my Dad last week.  We were in Shreveport at Oshner's doing all the prep work for his surgical procedure this next Monday.  My goodness, it was a LOT and we both grew very weary but we preservered!

4. This time last year, where were you? 

We were right here on "our hill" enjoying the fall weather and the anticipation of Thanksgiving. 

5. Share a favorite song, verse, or quote featuring the word 'peace'. 

One of my very favorites!!!!


6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Well, as many of you, this is not what I had prayed and hoped for the day after the election. I'm sure, like me, you were hoping for a winner last night.  But, we were warned this was a strong possibility and now we wait, and wait some more.  May the Lord be merciful and what a comfort to know that HE is still on His throne and still in charge.

  8. 2020 just keeps on giving! I can't bear to turn on the TV even now that the election is over because of all of the state election results still pending. All the calculations and recalculations. Makes me weary.

    Will be thinking of your father on Monday. Hope the surgery is a complete success.

    I wonder if our country will be at peace any time in the near future. Oy vey.

  10. I have been reading Dr. David Jeremiah's book OVERCOMER...and I've just finished reading the part about peace. Right now I can't honestly say I'm feeling a lot of peace, but I am certainly praying it not only for myself but my country. My heart is saddened hearing that our VP to be now wants to legalize prostitution and certain drug use. The devil is at work for sure but God is still on His throne. Praying for your father as he goes through his surgery.

  11. I just keep quoting John 14:27: Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. Lord, only the peace of God will help us through these times Lea. Praying for your sweet daddy. Hugs and blessings, Cindy
