Hodgepodge Fab 40!

Volume 40
1. Using what's in your frig right now what sort of meal would you be able to make for guests who are knocking at the front door this very minute?
Vegetables with Ranch Dip and Fruit salad...iced tea, water.

2. What is something about yourself that you hope will change but that probably never will?
That I grow in height to pass 5'!  My feet have grown since having, ya never know.

3. What's something about yourself that you hope will never change?
My heart's desire to grow closer to God each day!

4. Do you usually send serious or funny greeting cards? Why?
They are generally bright and optimistic...I love Dayspring Wooly cards.

5. Bird watching, shell gathering, or star gazing- your choice for whiling away the hours?
Bird watching...hands down.  I've had several nests of Bluebirds all this year.  It was fabulous.  Right now I have a bunch of Goldfinches eating my Black-eyed Susans and Coneflowers.
6. Do you double or triple check things? If so, what?
When we're leaving for vacation...I check the trashes and the toilets...I don't like to return to yucky smells.  I also check for the Sweet Boobahs lovies and that all lights are off.  Usually twice.

7. What's your favorite place for people watching?
Bible Study.  This is a recent development for 'lil talkative me.  I'm trying to be a better I watch people before and after their responses.  You learn a lot...about who you can comfort and encourage later.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Today was Emmer-bean's second day of school.  I'm putting my neighbor's two kids on the bus too.  I had the opportunity to pray with everyone at the bus stop today...and it was really neat.  

I told them I was going to pray for Emma...and just being quiet was all I asked.  But when Emma asked me to pray for her bugbite...others started requesting for things to be Spelling tests and I prayed for them all by name.  And I had a small chance to say why I think prayer is SO important.

Planting the day at a time!  Who knows what God will do...

Great random thought. We never know who's life we're going to touch if we let God use us.
So so true when we plant the seed, and let God do the rest.

I think with what's in my frig I could make wraps or something with eggs.

I used to send very serious cards, but I'm liking funny ones more now. Love the Wolly ones!

I drive myself absolutely bonkers double and triple checking things, especially before a trip.

Praying at the bus stop is really neat!

Wow! Getting to pray at the bus stop for all of the kids. Thrilling! I love you. Mom D.

I have always said the bus stop is its own little mission field : ) And its only the second day of school!

Thank you for praying for and with the children. What an important ministry opportunity! May God bless all those going back to school, and their praying mamas too!

Hi Bobbi - thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. I really appreciate it and the great idea for cross stitching the names of the Lord. Think I'm going to try find a pattern for that.
God bless

I love how kids can ask for prayers for everything and be so thankful for the little things!
Only 5'? I think Joyce should put that question on the Hodgepodge at some point. We have a mental picture of the bloggers we frequent, but it's hard to tell through pictures just how tall everybody is!

Seeds must be planted for there to be a harvest :)

I feel incredibly tall now. Ha!
