It's a Grammar Infused Valentine Hodgepodge

Visit Joyce and join the fun!

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

L- laying aside one's desires

O- often thinking of others and putting them first

V- volunteering to serve and help where needed

E- expecting nothing in return

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

Yes. "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends." John 15:13

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

I recently helped a new friend who just moved to the area.  I don't want to go into details but I really am trying to help her and put my heart into it. 

4. What's your favorite fictional love story?

Cinderella, of course :) 

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

Generally I wear my heart on my sleeve.  Even if I try not to it is hard for me to hide how I feel.

6. What food says love to you? Why?

Ice cream because it makes me happy (even the "fake" coconut milk kind).  My husband says if you want to see me smile give me ice cream. 

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

On Sunday afternoon, after church, when my husband started driving toward the ocean instead of home.  It was a blustery, cold day but the sun was shining.  A quick brisk walk on the boardwalk, being careful not to step on the snow or ice, is always refreshing.  We watched a surfer ride a few waves and saw a snowman someone built on the boardwalk.  We saw a few deer along the road and stopped to take a closer look.  I love the beach and there is something special about being there in the winter.  I can't help but think of how awesome God is and how small I am  as I stand in front of the ocean.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Thanks for another great Hodgepodge Joyce.  I was reminded of some grammar lessons with the acrostic poem and two idioms! 



  1. Why didn't I think of Cinderella for my fictional love story? Great choice!

    Excellent acrostic.

  2. I almost said Cinderella : ) I share your sentiments about the ocean. I was reading something this morning (My Utmost for His Highest) about the countless ways God speaks to us through creation, and I whole heartedly agree. Enjoy your day!

  3. I'm a beach kind of gal anytime of the year. I agree...standing on the shore and looking out across the ocean does make you realize what a mighty God we serve.

  4. Your acrostic is impressive!
    I almost said "Cinderella" for #4, but changed my answer.
    I would have been "tickled pink" over that trip to the ocean, too :) Nothing says "love" to me, like a trip to the ocean...

  5. Good morning! First, I LOVED your acrostic! And then, your right Cinderella is the perfect love story! And I too LOVE the ocean. But being on the West Coast I honestly cannot imagine snow on the boardwalk...how different that would be! Enjoy your day!

  6. I'd be tickled pink to be driving to the beach too!! Have a good week!

  7. Great acrostic! Your Sunday walk on the beach sounded absolutely lovely and so romantic. Even in the middle of the day.

  8. "Cinderella" was my first thought as my favorite love story but I ended up changing to something else. I liked your anacrostic!

  9. I love Cinderella too. We went to the ocean a couple of weeks ago.Have a great week!

  10. We had some raspberry chocolate truffle ice cream the other night and it was to die for!

  11. Love your acrostic. Cinderella is a great answer. Enjoyed your answer on a food that say's love to you!
