Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Wednesday Hodge Podge

Is it hot where you live, because it has been HOT here?! Let's dive right in to the Hodgepodge, shall we? If you've answered the questions, be sure to link at the end of Joyce's post by clicking here.  Here we go-

1. Is your home air conditioned? If it's not air conditioned, is that by choice? Did you grow up with air conditioning? If not how did you cope with the heat? Share about a time or place you remember as being too hot-the temperature kind of hot, lest anyone be confused.No we did not air conditioning in our home and I grew up in South Florida.  We used box fans and had a fan at the end of the hall that we used.  It was loud and you could not watch tv when it was on.  When I was 13 we found out I had terrible asthma when our next door neighbor planted Cape Jasmine hedgerow just outside my bedroom window.  At that time in my life we had air conditioning in my room.  My dad visited my room a lot when he came home from work.   From the time I was 20 and married I have always had air conditioning in Alabama.2. What's something in your life right now that falls under the heading 'up in the air'?  As an itinerate  pastor's wife and pastor with the Methodist Church you never know when you will be moved to the next church and as a non-tenured teacher for the first time in 25+ years you never know when you will get that dreaded pink slip.3. Your favorite light and airy dessert?  Lemon or Key Lime pie.
4. When did you last feel like you were 'floating on air'?  When Randolph County hired me to teach last year...and when I did not get pinked at the end of the year.5. Airport, airmail, airtight, airhead...which have you most recently encountered? Explain.  Airtight.  Frank and I are juicing and have bought one of the sealer things to premake our smoothies.  We spent a good bit of Saturday measuring out fruits, greens, oats, almond milk to make a complete juice thing.6.  Have you ever been to the Alps? If so where did you go? If not, is this a destination on your must-see list? If you were headed that direction this summer, which of the following would be your preferred activity...a gentle walk, a serious walk, a bike ride, a boat ride around one of the lakes, or summer snow skiing?  The closest I have ever been to the Alps is flying over them when we landed in Frankfurt, enroute to Italy.7. What is one saying or phrase that was considered 'cool' when you were growing up?  I too was a teenager in the 70's and a phrase that came to mind was 'to the max' and far out man. We tacked that on to a lot of sentences, but it was just another way of saying 'as much as possible'. I copied Joyce's answer because....lets face it...we grew up in close to the same era.  I am the oldest.
8. Insert your own random thought here.  I preached revival at Bear Creek on Monday night.  The people there were lovely.  My church has revival beginning this Sunday night.  Do you have revival services at your church?  Do you attend?

I can't imagine living in the South without ac. Even Wisconsin is hot and muggy during the summer, but nothing like the South!! Yes, there were revival meetings when I was a kid. Tent meetings!

My dad was a rural Baptist pastor and I married a Music Minister so yes,there have always been revivals. We don't seem to do them so much any more and yet, probably need them more than ever. I gather you are also an ordained minister? A dear young friend of ours is also a minister in the Methodist Church and she and her husband have recently been called to serve as co-pastors. They are very excited about this shared ministry. So good to visit with you today, Karen.

I could go for some Key Lime pie right now! Way to go on the juicing, it is really good for you. Have a wonderful time at your churches revival. I'm not attending a church right now but the one I did attend did not have a revival.

We didn't have AC when I was a kid in NC either - we had an attic fan & a big fan in the living room that we blew outward to create a draft through the house at night. It worked pretty well, but when my mom hit menopause they got central air. Ha!

Our church doesn't hold revival meetings. In fact I've never been to one.
