Hodge Podge Wednesday





1. Share something you loved about your Christmas day.
This was the first Christmas in about 6 or 7 years or more that my hubby and I got to spend with my family. I'd love to upload pictures but the computer is running V---E---R---Y----S---L---O---W tonight.  So maybe at a later time.

2. You get to put five items in a time capsule to be opened in 100 years, what items would you choose and why?

A Picture album of our family because it would be nice for future generations to see how it was back when all would have explanations as to who they are because I have tons of pictures now of people I do not remember; and my mom will say "O you know 'so in so' don't you? when we look at them.
A cell phone, no a smart phone  just because we think we are so cool with them.
An I Pod touch loaded with music just so the future can know what we or I listened to.
A Bible to show the future that it is the word of God and does not change.
A book maybe Dr Sues or something like that because I am sure they will be obsolete by then.

3. What do you like on a cracker?

OK, I will eat almost anything on a cracker, I'm just saying I am not picky. I will eat pb&j, cheese, meat of some kind (ham, turkey, pepperoni). I also like crackers with soup and will dunk them in to get them soggy with the juices from the soup...HMM! 


4. Do you make resolutions? How'd that work out for you this past year? 
I try not to make reservations any more because I do not keep them. So when I think I need to do something or make a change I mull over it for a while then do it.

5. What's a song or song lyric you'll associate with 2011?
I would have to say Broken Hallelujah by Mandisa because of the loss of my grandmother this year it has much more meaning to me.

Oooh
Oooh
With my love and my sadness
I come before You Lord
My heart's in a thousand pieces
Maybe even more
Yet I trust in this moment You're with me somehow
And You've always been faithful so Lord even now


When all that I can sing is a broken Hallelujah
When my only offering is shattered praise
Still a song of adoration will rise up from these ruins
And I will worship You and give You thanks
Even when my only praise is a broken Hallelujah
Oh Father, You have given
much more than I deserve
And I have felt Your hand of blessing
on me at every turn
How could I doubt Your goodness,
Your wisdom, Your grace
Oh Lord hear my heart in this painful place


When all that I can sing is a broken Hallelujah
When my only offering is shattered praise
Still a song of adoration will rise up from these ruins
And I will worship You and give You thanks
Even when my only praise is a broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I lift my voice
Your spirit moves
I raise my hands
I reach for You
'Cause all that I can sing is a broken Hallelujah
And my only offering is shattered praise
Still a song of adoration will rise up from these ruins
And I will worship You and give You thanks
Even when my only praise is a broken Hallelujah


Hallelujah             http://youtu.be/cH16B5449Iw

6. How will you ring in the new year?

Probably on face book, watching TV or something like that. I have to work New Years Day night shift so I will be awake all night and my hubby I am sure will be sleeping just like last year and the years before. Haven't been into the party scene for a few years now. As always I will call my mom at midnight. ( I always called my grandmother in years past too.)


7. What is something you look forward to in 2012?
I have several things. First I am headed to the west coast to see my daughter and her family on the second of January! I am so excited!! We are not telling my six year old grandson; we have a plan to surprise him. I can't wait!! Then when I get back new home, should be in by Jan 13 if all goes well this time. Visit to my son shortly after that as we head to SC to get our stuff ready for movers.
Feb or March I am taking a test for my certification, please pray for me on that I am a terrible test taker. Then I am going to go back to school for my Masters degree in Nursing Education. I have just been  offered a volunteer position to blog for the Oncology Nursing Society.....What can I say I just like to keep busy!

 8. Insert your own random thought here.
I think of everything I listed above I am most excited about surprising my six year old grandson. He has had a rough couple of months at school and even has to go to a counselor. I just want to hug him and let him know it will be ok and this too shall pass as gentle as you can for a six year old. I will be with him when he goes to his next counselor visit. 
Besides I always have so much fun and laugh until I have to run to the bathroom when I am with them. 

I hope you all have a wonderful and happy new year!!

Loved your song choice. It is touching. Your new year sounds like it will be filled with new beginnings, and that's a good thing. Hope it is peaceful and rewarding.

We've been through it with a child having a hard time at school. My daughter is 19 now, so it does pass and they do survive, but it hurts so much to see them go through it. Saying a special prayer for your little guy. :)

Wow - that song brought me to tears! Will be praying for your visit with your grandson as well. I traveled down your blog a bit and was very touched by your other blog posts... your honesty and love for the Lord are an inspiration. Have a blessed New year!

Good luck on your exam. I certainly know how stressful it can be, having completed the last of several teacher exams. Good luck as you enter graduate school, and congrats on the blog writing position! What neat things are happening. Enjoy your trip and your time with your grandson. Your special love will soothe away his troubles, I'm sure. :)
