Wednesday Hodgepodge: 10-14 February 2016

1. Create an acrostic using the word LOVE. If you're unsure what an acrostic is click here.

Love takes courage.
Only a few are willing to see it through.
Very often, people abandon love when it's inconvenient.
Emotion?   No.   Love is a decision.

2. Does love really conquer all? Why or why not?

Oh, heavens no.  I could spend a lot of time waxing philosophical about this, but I'll shorten it to this: to effect change, love must be received.  And nothing you can do as a person giving love can compel someone into receiving it.

3. Tell us about a time recently, where you really put your heart into something.

I'm working on some presentations now, preparing to become an AP Computer Science Workshop Consultant.   I don't know if these presentations are fabulous or not, but I find I'm spending a lot of time working on them because I enjoy the work.

4. What's your favorite fictional love story?

Oh, gosh ... I don't know.   "Love story" isn't really my genre.  There's a love story that's a sidebar to the main story in "In His Steps"; perhaps that's the one I'd pick if I had to choose one.

5. Do you generally wear your heart on your sleeve, or keep your cards close to the vest?

Heart on my sleeve.   I don't know how to relate to the world in any other way --- even though it hurts.

6. What food says love to you? Why?

Homemade.   Doesn't really matter what the food is.   The love that my wife puts into her cooking is always evident.

7. When were you last 'tickled pink' over something? Explain.

I help out in the nursery during Sunday School each week.   Our most faithful attendee each week is a little girl just over a year old.   The Sunday before Christmas, she walked into the nursery carrying this (for her) huge jar of salted caramel chocolates and toddled over to me with this great big grin on her face.    I've been rationing out those chocolates ever since then because every time I take one, I grin from ear to ear.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I might be caught up enough with my ordinary work duties to start working on some of my backlog this week.   Let's hope ...
