Wednesday Hodgepodge #95

It's Wednesday and time to join Joyce from This Side of the Pond for the weekly Hodgepodge. If you haven't played along, you're missing a fun time!

1. The Wednesday Hodgepodge this week falls on John Chapman's birth date. He's more famously known as Johnny Appleseed...what's your favorite variety of apple?

Right now it's Gala. It seems like every time I get a variety I like they change it up or quit selling it here. I used to really like Jonagolds.

2. When did you last say 'ick'?

I can't--and probably don't want to!--remember!

3. Do you think there's a generation gap? Explain.

Sure. It's somewhat inevitable. The younger generation does not have the wisdom to understand the older generation's perspective. And while the older generation remembers and understands a bit of the perspective of the younger generation, times change enough that they can't completely relate.

4. What's on your computer screen saver? Do you leave it alone or change it often?

Not sure if Joyce means the background/wallpaper or the moving screen saver. Right now the background/wallpaper is a one of the standard pics that came with the laptop. And the screen saver is the standard floating bubbles one that came with it. I change them occasionally but not very often.

5. If you had the attention of the entire world for two minutes, what would you say?

Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him, and to our God, for He will freely pardon. (Isaiah 55:6-7)


If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile——the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on Him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)

6. Four fashion trends to try this fall are: brocade/jacquard (fancy printed fabrics), peplum, lace, and printed pants...which of these four would you be most likely to wear?

Peplum or lace.

7. What can make your bad day better?

Listening to some great Christian songs or hymns.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

My favorite quote of this week: "totally benign."
