Another Summer Wednesday Hodgepodge today with thanks to Jo From This Side of the Pond.
1. According to author Gary Chapman there are five love languages-words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch, acts of service, and receiving gifts. Which one is yours?
If you mean which one do I receive as love, I’d have to say acts of service with true words of affirmation coming in close. On the other side, the giving not receiving, I like to give gifts.
2. What are five foods you eat every day?
As it stands, I’m in a period of trying to drop some pounds so according to that regiment here are five foods I’m eating at present:
High Fiber Cereal from Trader Joe’s with 9 grams of fiber per serving, a good handful of blueberries, low fat string cheese, eggs and an assortment of veggies.
3. Five places you’d love to visit?
Prince Edward Island, Ireland, New England States, More National Parks, More of Great Britain
4. Something you’ve done recently that deserved a ‘high five‘?
I’ve lost a good solid 12 pounds.
5. Give us five 5-letter words that describe your July.
Water: with the summer heat I’ve been watering, a lot.
Shade: If I’m outside I try to find shade. We have also put up our shade cloth.
Walks: Early morning walks have started in July.
Grands: July has lots of opportunities for fun in the sun with our Grands!
Focus: Working on a more God-Centered focus. Something I read yesterday in a devotional by Alistair Begg: “Jesus made it clear that in order for us to embrace a God-centered focus, we must first understand who we are without Him. In fact, Jesus explained to His disciples that apart from Him they could do nothing; after all, “in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17) Our need for Jesus is not partial; it is total. None of us can even breathe without God’s enabling. How can we think of taking credit for any work that He’s done through us? We are absolutely impoverished without divine help.”
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Speaking of our grands and July, on Monday we went into the Colville National Forest to a very remote area to help our kids get stocked up with fire wood for the winter. I’ll do a whole post on our time there. Here are the grands who persevered a whole 4 hours!
