Friendly Fill-Ins and Feline Friday – Catch Up Post

I have missed the last several weeks of two of my favorite weekly posts, so today’s post is a catch-up post.  Have a blessed day, all!

Friendly Fill-Ins is a fun meme co-hosted by 15 and Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs. Feline Friday is a funny kitty adventure hosted by Sandee over at Comedy Plus. Be sure to visit all of them and join in the fun!

1. My favorite quote is ______________________.

My favorite quote is a Bible verse. It was given to me during a most difficult time in my life.

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

This verse is my life verse, meant to assure me through all things, regardless of what is going on. He’s got it covered!

2. My favorite part of February is ____________________.

My favorite part of February is the early arrival of spring wildflowers.

3. A little known fact about me is _________.

A little known fact about me is my biological maiden name.

4. _________ is the most rewarding experience in the world.

Being able to help people find what or who they are looking for is the most rewarding experience in the world. Almost everyone needs to be needed in one way or another. Fulfilling the needs of others also fulfills that need for me.

1. I wish I could tell me teenage self ____________________________.

I wish I could tell my teenage self about this past year so that she/I wouldn’t be so blind-sided when it happened.

2. I think the most romantic movie is ___________________.

I know this will seem an odd response, but I think Hotel Transylvania is one of the most romantic movies.

3. _________ was the last time I _________.

4 December 2018 was the last time I had anything close to full control/use of my brain. 5 Dec 2018 crashed my internal hard drive and the repair is still underway.

4. _________ happens too often.

Lies and deception happen far too often.

1. I always carry ________________ with me.

I always carry my daddy with me. The more circumstances try to take him from me, the tighter I hold on. He may not be in my blood, but he is forever in my heart.

2. I would love to know why ______________?

I would love to know why I can’t have full use of my brain while battling depression and grief.

3. I express my love in the form of _________.

I express my love in the form of service to others.

4. _________ makes me feel like the luckiest individual alive.

Having David still with me, on the one year anniversary of his “true stroke” makes me feel like the luckiest and most blessed individual. I didn’t share with anybody, not even him, but after this stroke, the prognosis was that David would not make it through the year. Heavenly Father had His own prognosis and I still have him with me! I am most grateful for that. Prayers move mountains!

    • Thank you, Sandee. I love kitties, too. They can be rascals, but are such loving creatures. 🙂
      I will try to be better about posting regularly again and hopefully get back to commenting to everyone, too.
      Thanks for the prayers. We appreciate them very much and I know the prayers of faithful friends have helped us to make it through this last year of challenges.
      I hope that you have a happy and blessed rest of the week, too! {{{Hugs}}}♥

    Love your answers, quotes and photos.
    Sorry been a stranger but had the blahs and didn’t feel well. ?Feeling better thankfully.


  4. It’s good to hear from you again!
    Never stopped praying for you two, and it’s wonderful David is still with you. Doctors don’t know everything 😊

    It’s good to see you. I hope you’ve been okay!

    I love that verse. It means a lot to me right now.

    We lose full use of our brains during grief because of all the short circuiting. We get lost in a haze of memories that pop up and distract us, all the reminders of things we need to do, remembering things we forgot, forgetting things we thought we remembered.

    Helping people is one of the things us INFJs love to do. 🙂

    I am so happy for you that you still have your David! What a blessing! He’s made it past the 1 yr mark and that is so encouraging! Praise the Lord!

    Please pray for my and my kids. My husband passed away suddenly 3 weeks ago (Feb 15th) and we’re struggling. Lots of decisions will have to be made (I should say more decisions) and we’ll surely have to move soon. It’s been so stressful and sad, although we are trying to rejoice in the knowledge that my husband is with the Lord now and free of any pain – physical and emotional. I know God is present and working, but I am still trying to circle as many “prayer wagons” as I possibly can. Thank you, sweet Suzanne. ❤ hugs
