The Merry Month of May Hodgepodge

Our first Wednesday Hodgepodge in the Merry Month of May. Thank you to Jo for asking the questions.

1. What’s something you ‘may’ do this month? 

Our church is having an auction of many items donated by our congregation to raise money for special projects our missionaries need support with. I just may bid on something at the auction. One item I’ve seen already is an English Tea for 8 guests put on in your home. That sounds like fun.

And…maybe I’ll refill our hanging baskets with some fresh potting soil and flowers.

2. Last time you literally or figuratively shouted mayday!

During the event we were in charge of a few weeks ago I shouted quietly to my right hand man (Dear) to grab something, lend a hand, or run to the store. Mayday! Mayday!

3. Let the chips fall where they may, come what maymaybe, Cape Maymayflies, devil may care, you may now kiss the bride,  much to our dismaymayhem, mayonnaise…choose a ‘may’ word or phrase from the list and tell us how it relates to your life in some way right now. 

In the current climate of our world (and any time) it’s a comfort to believe in Almighty God who holds our future in His hands so I’ll say, ‘come what may’. And may we be prepared by drawing closer and closer to Him for whatever comes our way.

4. If someone were serving you breakfast in bed this weekend, what would you like to see on the menu?

Something easy to deal with in bed. A nice egg scramble with veggies and ham served in a croissant with strawberries on the side and a big cup of black coffee.

5. Tell me one true thing you believe about motherhood. 

That God uses motherhood to make us more like Christ and to help us understand His love for us.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Hi Ellen, the auction for the English tea sounds wonderful. Keep us posted. I would love to buy some hanging baskets for my porch but I feel sure the birds would build nests in them. I hope you have a very nice May.

  2. Fun exercise! Some of the words I didn’t even really think about having the word “may” in them!!! Now I’ll think about it every time I hear or speak them! (Like mayonnaise that I just used to make chicken salad this morning and mayhem that I just said to describe the day ahead!!!)

  3. Loved your answer to #3 and wish I’d thought of using that one! That English tea for 8 guests definitely sounds like a fun item worth bidding on at the auction. I hope you win!

  4. The English Tea is a fun idea for an auction item!
    You’re right, I have learned so much about God’s love by being a Mom.
    Happy Mother’s Day! Thanks for visiting me.

  5. I enjoy reading your responses. I also never thought of “may” being in so many words and phrases.
    “Maybe” this month some of our restirctions will ease up.

  6. Love the sound of the English tea….it may just be yours!
    I saw God’s love many a time through my mom’s love. As mother’s day comes, may we become more and more Christ like in our lives.
