Planning Out the Hodgepodge

Time for another Wednesday Hodgepodge! Answer the questions, link up with Joyce, and then visit some friends to read their answers!
 1. What's something we'd find you doing most afternoons?
 Walking GurlDogg…every day. Rain, snow, or shine; in the heat or cold. You’ll find us in the park
Wet dog walking on a leash on a sidewalk with puddles
2. Who do you take after? In what way(s)? 

I find that I’m taking a lot after my mom, especially the older I get. My mom started her day in prayer, which I have been doing for the past few years. I’m involved in the music ministry at church - she was the organist for 40 years. I catch myself saying things my mom did or reacting to things like she would have done. I caught a glimpse of myself on the computer one day and had to do a double-take. I think I look like a mix of both of my parents, but sometimes I really see my mom in myself.


3. 'After every storm comes a rainbow' or 'the calm before the storm'...which phrase do you relate to more right now? Tell us why? 

After every storm comes a rainbow. Aren’t we all living in a storm right now? But I know that there’s a rainbow to come. “Faith over fear”


4. What are your plans for the day after tomorrow? 

First work, then walk GD (see #1), cook supper, and then a Zoom bible study. I have met some incredible women through this study this year, and have gotten to know a few women better. It is amazing to walk through this journey with them. Even though we can’t meet in person, it’s wonderful to have that hour with them; to learn from them, and to share our faith. An hour really isn’t enough time, though. There’s so much to say and so much to hear!

5. Complete this sentence-"After all is said and done_____________________."

I have to look at what is really important in my life and do what is best for me and my family. I have to look at where I’m spending my time and if that will make a difference. Because of that, I’m pretty much off of FB now and am limiting IG time. It’s just not worth it. Comparing myself to other people and getting all stressed about what I think I should be doing (because of comparisons)…it isn’t worth it.


6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Does anyone else have a problem with parking space possession? We don't have assigned parking spaces at school, but I've been parking in the same spot for years. I park there so my door won't get banged up by other cars. Yesterday I drove in and someone was in my spot! I asked the secretary if she knew whose car it was, and the principal said she thought I got a new car...because that's my spot! I haven't figured it out yet!



  1. I identify with #5 because I've been saying that too - doing what I can do for us and tuning out a lot of that other junk.

  2. Mary,

    I like what you said "Faith over fear". Yes, that's the way we need to live. It's so easy to allow fear to rule your life but God is in control of all things. Thanks for sharing your responses. If you get a chance, I hope you'll join me on Curious as a Cathy for a look at how I answered the hodgepodge questions. Have a blessed day!

  3. Work spaces are like church pews. Don't mix it up people! What a messy world we are living in. Thankful for my faith and I pray for those who are lost trying to navigate these angry challenging times we are living through. Have a great day! I hope nobody took your spot!

  4. Did you ever watch Big Bang Theory? It was one of our favorite shows and one of the characters, Sheldon, had a "spot" on the sofa and no one else could sit there! How dare someone park in your parking spot!! Seriously! Hope you have a great day!

  5. Oh oh on your spot parking. ((grin))---my husband would say, "Linda, does it have your name on it?" But then again, he is the first to complain when our parking spot in the front of the house is taken (we live on a very narrow street where parking is nonexistent at times, sigh).

    Have a great day friend, smiles.

  6. Loved your answers... laughed out loud reading about your parking space!

  7. I have not been on FB a lot, either. I see all those pics and post of people having fun and I am like...not me :(. I also think FB has turned into a lot of braggers.
    At my school, we have tags (not this year...virus) and we have certain assigned spots. Even though we don't have tags, I accidentally parked in someone's spot...and I heard about it...I guess we are all creatures of habit.

  8. Walking everyday is so awesome! I like your "Faith over fear", words to live by. That is wonderful that you have a zoom bible study. I would be very upset about the parking spot.
