Living on a Prayer: The Weekly Hodgepodge

 Want to join the party?  Go on over to From This Side of the Pond  for the Hodgepodge link-up!

What's something you're looking forward to in the month of June?
I'm looking forward to completing the second half of the Journey Training in Tulsa next week.  I've also had a couple of job interviews, so I'm looking forward to getting back to work, hopefully this month.
In what way have you come full circle?
I haven't as far as I know.
Lonely Planet lists 10 spots in America you should see in 2015 and the reasons why. How many on the list have you seen? Which one on the list would you most like to see? Queens NY, Western South Dakota, New Orleans, Colorado River Region, North Conway NH, Indianapolis IN, Greenville SC, Oakland CA, Duluth MN, and the Mount Shasta Region CA
I haven't seen any of those yet.  Since Oakland is in the Bay area near San Francisco, I'd like to see that area.  Mount Shasta region sounds wonderful also.  There goes that heart for California again.
A song that describes your mood right now?

I feel like Tommy and Gina in this song: I'm trying to hold on, pray, and work hard to make something (other than a mess) of myself.  It gets tough when you see others who made promises to you fulfill their dreams and forget about you.  It's tough when others get rescue and you get ostracized.  It's tough, but God's got this.
Strawberry ice cream, strawberry short cake, strawberry pie, or strawberries right off the vine...your favorite?
Fresh strawberries are my favorite.  Strawberry ice cream is a distant second.
Aesop's birthday is celebrated on June 4th, although there is some disagreement as to whether or not that's accurate, or if he was even a real person. Regardless, the name Aesop is associated to this day with many well known fables. Which of the following best applies to something in your life right now? The Tortoise and the Hare (Slow and Steady wins the race), The Ant and the Grasshopper (Be prepared), The Fox and the Goat (Look before you leap) or The Crow and the Pitcher (Necessity is the mother of invention)?
I've never heard of the story of The Crow and the Pitcher but "necessity is the mother of invention" seems to fit the bill right now.
The answer is yes...what's the question?
Does God love me?
Insert your own random thought here.
I have so much I could say right now, but I wouldn't know where to start.  So, I'll just play a song.
