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!”

August Farewell Hodge Podge

Okay, here we go...read Joyce's questions, answer on your own blog like I did, , then hop back over here at your convenience, by clicking right here....and then add your link to the party.
1.  Are there any men or women in blue on your family tree? Frank is a reerve Deputy for Randolph County.  I have a cousin who was a city police officer....but no more that I know of.

2. Are you someone who suffers from the Sunday night blues? What helps you get over it?  Sometimes Sunday night blues do get a hold of me, especially if I had a busy weekend with no down time.. Usually I begin to dwell on something good that is going to happen during the week ahead, or read my Bible, or a book I need to read, I write....or....and don't laugh.  I watch Guys Grocery Games....I know...not too profound.  But he makes me laugh.
3. I read the color blue is an appetite suppressant since there are very few naturally blue foods out there. How do you feel about blue cheese? Love it or blech? If you're a fan, what's something you like that's made with blue cheese?  I do no like blue cheese at all.  I don't like the smell or the taste.  It is nasty and if it were the only cheese around....I would never eat cheese.
4. We can't head in to the Labor Day weekend without a related question, can we? Complete this thought: work best when I have some music soothing my soul and putting me in the zone. 

5. 'Everything yields to diligence .' Antiphanes Your thoughts? (on this particular quote or on diligence in general). 
I believe that diligence is the constant...pressing forward....and yes...it is almost like a snowball effect....you begin....are diligent....and the world gets out of your way.  That is the best I have before drinking a cup of coffee.
6.
The National Park Service turned 100 years old on August 25th. Have you been to many of America's National Parks? If so share with us a favorite or two. Which National Park would you most like to visit before the next birthday rolls around?   I love all the ones I have been to, because I love historical places.  I would love to go back to Yellowstone and actually stay at the Yellowstone Lodge....and spend more than just a day.
 
I will be back in the Smokey Mountains again this year.  I love Cades Cove....of all the ones The Grand Canyon was probably my favorite of all. 

7.  Bid farewell to August in seven words or less.  School begins, fall's near, summer's gone!
8.  Can you believe that stores are already putting out their Christmas stuff?  I love Hobby Lobby....but they are decked out to the hilt! How do you feel about this????  Can each holiday not have it's moment in the sun????

Hobby Lobby already has Christmas stuff on display? That's crazy! I loved the Grand Canyon, too, and am due for a visit back there. Beautiful!

Wishing I had joined in the Hodgepodge today. Good questions and answers. I have enjoyed every national park I have visited and someday I want to see the Grand Canyon and Cade's Cove. I like your ways of relaxing on Sunday nights.

I'm always shocked at how quick the next holiday appears on the aisles of stores. I like your answer to question 2. Hope you have a good Labor Day weekend.

I hope to get back to Yellowstone one day too! I love the insight our forefather's had! I know they are putting out things and it would be nice if they would wait but the Christmas sales is what carries them through the year so they get it out as soon as they can.
