Wednesday's Number Hodgepodge

Visit Joyce and join the fun!

1. In a single sentence tell us something about your 40's. If you haven't reached that milestone yet tell us (in a single sentence) something about whatever decade you're in now.
In the midst of my 40's now!

2. Life begins at forty. Agree or disagree? Tell us why. And if not at forty, when?
I disagree.  Lots of good living happened before 40.  For me I would say at age 23.  My new life began then as that is when the Lord saved me.  

3. Share a favorite book, song, or quote with a number featured in it somewhere. 
10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman

4. A picture's worth a thousand words, a stitch in time saves nine, back to square one, catch-22, on cloud nine, my two cents...pick a number phrase and tell us how it applies to your life currently.
A picture is worth a thousand words.  My daughter is graduating our homeschool with Honors.  She is such a hard, determined worker.  She has also been working through this whole Covid19 crisis.  She didn't get to tour college campuses in person but was able to do a lot online and through Zoom.  She has made her decision and is registered for the Fall Semester.  She will be in the Honors Program as well as the Dean's Scholar's Program for Business.  I am so, so proud of her!  

5. Last time you drove more than 40 miles from home? More than 400 miles from home? Where were you going? Was it before or after this current season of social distancing?
I don't often drive more than 30 miles from home.  The last time I drove (well I was a passenger) more than 40 miles from home would be in 2017.  We went on a last minute few day getaway to the East End of Long Island.  This was the beachfront.

More than 400 miles would be in 2017 also.  We drove to Florida for a family emergency.  It was before social distancing.  It took over 20 hours so I am thankful there were rest stops and restaurants available to us.  

6. Insert your own random thought here. 
Week 9 of the stay home orders.  Some of our state has begun to open up but not our area.  We have only met 5 of the 7 criteria.  I am happy to see other states seem to be doing well with their reopening.  Hopefully it won't be too much longer here.  


  1. A big Congratulations to your smart daughter - what wonderful accomplishments already. She shows a lot of initiative. Yes, true life does begin when we are made new through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Great answer. I'm listening to your music as write. We sing this often in church. Have a great rest of your week, and thanks for visiting me early this morning.

  2. I love your answers. Now, why didn't I think of that 10,000 Reasons song? It is one of my favorites and sing it all the time. Your daughter sounds amazing and congratulations to her on her accomplishments and hard work. Blessings to you. You're right. Life does truly begin when we are born again! Love it!

  3. Congratulations to your daughter! What a strange season it's been for those wrapping up high school and university. Wishing her well in her next adventure!

  4. I remember liking most of my life before I turned 40. Nothing better than being born again. Congratulations to your daughter. I feel so bad for the graduates this year. I like road trips. It has been nice to see some states opening up and doing okay.

  5. Congratulations to your dear daughter and her hard work. Yikes, how did I forget that great song for my answer! I might just go and replace the one I posted for this one! Mid youngster! :) Blessings.

  6. Congratulations to your dear daughter, I wish her much success and happiness!
    Congratulations on your homeschool teaching, I can only imagine the pride you have!
    Thanks for sharing.
