Game of Thrones: The Weekly Hodgepodge

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

Give us three rhyming words that say something about your Thanksgiving holiday (or your most recent holiday gathering if you didn't celebrate Thanksgiving).
Best rest to be unstressed.  I didn't succumb to the pressure to HAVE to go somewhere or do something because I knew that I was working my normal hours on Friday.  I took the opportunity to relax.  I need some more of that.
When did you last say, 'the more the merrier'? Did you mean it?
It's been a while. 
What's one piece of advice you'd give someone who is your same age?
Don't be like me.  And, no, that's not a joke.
You're ordering a veggie plate, what four veggies are on it?
Broccoli, carrots, spinach, and bell peppers.
Shop til you drop! Did you? Have you ever? Will you between now and Christmas?

Dave Ramsey says NO!
What's your favorite chair in your house, and why is it a favorite?
The upholstered chair in my bedroom.  It's where I read, study, pray, chillax, and ready for the day.  It was an old chair my CEO  didn't want anymore because he was redecorating his office.  When I get my own place, this chair will most likely go in my living room/library.  Thought it was cast off, it was in good condition, plus it's comfortable.
Share an early memory of faith, religion, or spirituality.
Oh, I could write volumes about this.  My best friend in 9th grade, Evangeline Pate, invited me to church and I heard the true Gospel of Christ for the first time.  I gave my heart to the Lord that day. No, it hasn't been a bed of roses, but I wouldn't trade the changes to this life and the eternal bliss in the next for anything. 
I mention Van's name because in all of the social media I'm involved in, I've never found her.  Finding my friend would be an awesome miracle.  I want to simply thank her for being my friend and not being ashamed of sharing Jesus with an angry, bitter, hurting pathetic excuse for a human being.  I don't know if she's married or what her married name might be.  She was here when her parents were stationed at the now defunct Fort McClellan, Alabama military base.  She moved away just before we went into the 10th grade.
I also need to thank her because she's the one who put the notion in my head to take drum lessons...and a band nerd was created. 
Insert your own random thought here.
Please pray for me.


  1. Have you tried just a regular google search. Sometimes if you google the name plus an old address, city or state you land on something. You're in my prayers xo

    1. Yes, but I still couldn't find her. Thanks for praying.
