Wednesday Hodgepodge is back this week thanks to Jo From This Side of the Pond.
1. What is something you currently find ‘taxing’?
Getting my brain to stop organizing an event that I’m in charge of the kitchen for when I’m trying to fall asleep.
2. I’ve seen this question asked in various forms on several social media sites…you can only keep three-
coffee, jewelry, tacos, wine, books, dogs, chocolate, Netflix, make-up, leggings, cheese, cats
Which three do you keep and how easy or hard was it for you to decide?
This was not hard for me. My three would be coffee, books, and chocolate.
3. Tell us something you know or have learned about forgiveness?
If you are a believer in and a follower of Jesus, we are commanded to forgive. It is not an option. Sometimes it is hard but forgiveness brings peace. We have to grasp the fact that without forgiveness we would be lost in our sins and damned to hell. But thanks be to God that we can be forgiven and because we’ve been forgiven from so much we need to extend forgiveness. When we forgive we acknowledge that God is in control and we are not.
4. What’s something you’d recommend that is often overlooked and under appreciated?
Reading the Bible everyday not just a devotional.
I heard this yesterday and will quote it here.
“Sloppy sentimental devotionalizing of all the scriptures just doesn’t get at the issues. Teach with exactness.” from a sermon in Acts by John MacArthur
I’ll add, go to the exact source and read for yourself what it says.
Here’s another quote:
“Visit many good books, but live in the Bible.” ~ Charles Spurgeon
5. Give us a favorite word that starts with letter K and tell us why this is the one you chose.
Our daughter’s name starts with a K and I thought of her first but since you want a word not a person I’m going with Kindred Spirit, (okay it’s two words but one of them starts with a k) a person whose interests or attitudes are similar to one’s own. In this day and age it is so comforting to find those with whom you can express yourself and not be silenced by or condemned. I get weary of social police…but I will forgive.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
We have a busy weekend coming up and next week that event that my brain is not shutting off for will demand all of my attention from Wednesday through Friday so I’ll be absent from my blog and from visiting other blogs.
In the meantime I’m posting this photo again that our DIL sent along to make you smile. He’s turning two on Friday!

…sometimes when I’m trying to fall asleep I can’t slow my mind down.
Happy Birthday to JJ! I hope you all have a great day and party! Take care, have a great day!
A post full of truth. Thanks for sharing.
I hate it when I can’t turn my brain off especially when it decides to turn on in the middle of the night
A very ‘2-year old’ portrait : ) Good luck with your event. Hope all goes smoothly and your brain can rest.
Your answer to #3 could not be better. When you learn how to shut off the brain when you get in bed, let me know.
Libby, thank you!
aw how cute!
That photo is adorable! I enjoyed your answers very much.
My three would be books, chocolate, and cheese.
I agree with you about reading the Bible every day. I do and It really does make a difference in your day and life!
Love your answers, especially #3 & 4, Amen! If that is marker on the table it must have been a good opportunity for forgiveness. He is so cute! Hope your event goes well and you can sleep better 🙂
He’s so adorable he gets cuter by the minute- even if he is two!!!
Ellen, loved the “visit books, live in the Bible” quote. And I always enjoy reading hodgepodge posts. My three choices would be books, cheese, and cats!
