Friday_Fill-In_BadgeHere are the fill-ins:

  1. My Chinese zodiac animal sign is __________________.
  2. My zodiac sign is ___________________.
  3. Income tax season ___________________.
  4. In hindsight, _______________________.

Here are my responses:

coconut-1123738_640My Chinese zodiac animal sign is the snake, which I think is incredibly funny because *someone* I know isn’t particularly fond of snakes. .

My zodiac sign is Leo, and the description fits me in a lot of ways. Other ways, not so much.

Income tax season usually is a good thing for us. People call David for help and he is usually able to help them out of whatever mess they might be in. One of those somebodies is going to bake us a coconut pie. 🙂

In hindsight, I never should have tried going back to college. It cost money that we didn’t (and don’t) have. It did not help my self-esteem issues to be called “abnormal” because I am an introvert. It just left us broker and me feeling even worse about myself (and deepened my introversion!).  Besides, our health issues have removed opportunities to use what I was learning anyway. I would have been better off fighting it through on my own in regards to learning what I wanted to learn. YouTube has lots of educational videos and there is a plethora of websites discussing anything that I would want to learn. AND I can watch/read those on my own time table!

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Friday_Fill-In_BadgeHere are the fill-ins:

1. The Winter Olympics _____.
2. I think the most romantic movie (or book) is _____.
3. Recently, I had an odd experience when _____.
4. I believe that love _____.

Here are my responses:

The Winter Olympics isn’t something that I will be watching, but of the sports involved, figure skating is my favorite. I wish that I could do that!

The most romantic movie or book is a difficult one for me. I don’t really get into romance movies or books. So, I took a different perspective on the word “romantic”.

Merriam-Webster has this as one of the definitions of “romantic”:

4 a : marked by the imaginative or emotional appeal of what is heroic, adventurous, remote, mysterious, or idealized

With that definition in mind, I chose two of my favorite Christmas holiday movies: It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street. Both meet the definition above AND include the more traditional view of romance, with the lead characters being either engaged or married by the end of the movies.

I can’t really think of an “odd” experience lately, other than one that was incredibly embarrassing. I have been visited (walked in on) in the bathroom a zillion times over the last 30+ years, since we started having babies. While David was at the nursing home, a young man that I did NOT issue forth walked in on me. That was odd in that it has never happened before. With any luck, it will never happen again!

I believe that love can be at first sight. That is how it worked for me! The first time I looked across the courtyard and saw David’s eyes looking back across the courtyard, I knew I loved him. I was just too terrified to talk to him. haha

Friday_Fill-In_BadgeHere are the fill-ins:

1. Trust_______________________.
2. I would protest ____________.
3. I have _______since ________.
4. Right now, I _______________.

Here are my responses:

Trust is very hard to regain once it is broken.

I would protest abortion and have.

I have loved photography since I was a little girl. I used to follow my parents around with my “finger camera” and take a “picture” of them each time I caught them kissing.

Right now, I am wondering what lies ahead for all of us. The situation that we requested prayer for turned worse.  I don’t know where we all go from here, but Heavenly Father has it all under control.

I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but I know Who holds tomorrow.

“Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heav’n and home,
When Jesus is my portion? My constant Friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

Refrain:
I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

“Let not your heart be troubled,” His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him, from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.”

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. I (almost) always _____, because _____.
  1. I (almost) never _____ because _______.

Here are my responses:

The flu shot is something that I never intend to take. Everyone that I know who has taken it or the pneumonia shot has gotten sick. If I don’t take it, maybe I get sick, maybe I don’t. The odds are more in my favor if I don’t take it. Getting the shot almost guarantees me getting sick. No, thank you.

I think everyone should take the time to read their Bibles and pray daily. Time with Heavenly Father, pondering His word, is something that we all need. It doesn’t guarantee a perfect day, but it makes whatever comes along easier to get through.

I almost always cry when I see the soldiers’ coming home videos because they hit so very close to home. Our sons are in service and it is a blessing whenever they get to come home. On the other side of things, my Uncle Bobby Joe came home in a box. So many come home that way that it brings tears of joy when one makes it back home alive.

I almost never get everything done in a day that I wish to get done because there is way more to do than there is of me.
