Tuesday 4 and More Thoughts

 PONDERING ODDS AND ENDS

Tuesday 4

Welcome to ToniTaddeo's Tuesday 4 kept up in her memory. We offer 4 questions for you to ponder and consider each week.  Hopefully they  make you stop and think and even get know yourself  and other bloggers a bit better .

Here we go discussing some personal thoughts this week...

1. Do you have a favorite gemstone! Why is it!

For my 16th birthday my dad bought me a birthday ring, December , blue topaz. I still have that ring although I need to have it resized. It is very special to me because my dad picked it out and he and I had a wonderful relationship. .

2. Do you know and understand the religious doctrines of your faith?\

Although raised a Catholic and will never forget the  things my folks gave up to educate myself and my four siblings in the Catholic school system . I am a born again Christian. I am not a traditional "religion" person . I rely solely on faith in God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I did learn how important it was to have faith in Jesus early in my life. 

It is interesting because as I write this my husband shared an article which is quite lengthy by Tim LaHaye (1926-2016). It is about the coming end times and the major players (China and Russia). My friend Joyce always says, if you read the bible you would totally understand what is happening and going on in the world.

I'll keep trusting God, following Jesus and praying for the world.

3. Do you have a favorite décor style, as in classical, traditional, modern, mid-century, colonial, etc.? What do you like about it?

I am kind of all over the place. I love the farmhouse look, I like simplicity. I am not big on formal. why have nice things if only to gaze upon them? One thing is certain, I am not nor will I ever be a minimalist! I need no one to spark my joy! I have Jesus for that! My sister Patsy was a colonial lover. She had the most lovely furnishings. She had a "gossip" bench that sweet little seat where you kept your landline and could sit and chat. I think of her when I see one pop up sometimes. I love comfort and do not like sofas or chairs that look pretty but hurt you more than keep you cozy. 

4. Are there any books or movies you want to see this summer? I am knee deep in reading and somedays the entire day is gone before I realize I spent most of it reading a good book. We recently watched a Pixar movie, "Encanto" with our kids. Our son Jeremy has lights around his TV so when the music changes moods so do the lights. I am not too tech savvy but it was fun seeing those pretty lights. We do not go to movies anymore. It has gotten too expensive and too many people still kick the back of your seat and others talk too much. I prefer watching movies at home.  We have popcorn if we want it and the Dollar Tree still sells the movie candy for $1.25  a box. You need a bank loan for the movies today. 


Always a smile for these two fellows.

Love your Q&A. We are both alike where religion is concerned. We're very spiritual people.

Have a blessed day and week, Anne. Love and hugs. ♥

Hi Anne, I enjoyed my visit here today though the print was a bit small for my bad eyes. I am familiar with Time La Haye. I read all the Left Behind books that he wrote along with Jerry Jenkins. I am not surprised about what is happening in the world because of what the Bible says. God is in control! Back in the 70's a co worker said that when the sleeping giants wake (Russia and China), be warned and that the US was going to lose world power. We go to Tuesday first show matinees. The price is $5.00. We take our snacks and water. We did see Encanto with our grands.

I'm not overly fond of gemstones, or jewelry for that matter -- but one of my favorite pieces is the garnet/gold ring my own father bought me on my 16th birthday! (And my mom said, "She's too young." Ha!) Small world, no?
I remember those gossip benches, so popular in the 50's and 60's. Never knew that's what they were called, but I liked them. 'Even tried saving my allowance to buy one for my parents, but that never happened.
Thank you for sending me that article by La Haye! I hope Tom will sit down and read it with me this evening!

Amethyst is my favorite gemstone.

My faith is like yours, and i am glad to share it with anyone who wants to know.

Annie said...

Yup, movies are so expensive. More fun at home anyway I think. I like farmhouse too. It is very warm and inviting but I stick with traditional mainly.
I am so glad you joined in!

Brian said...

Those were good and interesting answers to those questions.

We don't go to the movies anymore either! too expensive, and now too dangerous what with Covid. I will either wait till it is on pay per view, or buy the DVD if I want to see it badly enough.

Love this post. I am all over the place in decor also. We built this house 20 years ago and much still looks the same. Enjoy your day dear friend. Hugs

I enjoy learning more about you through the questions. We are similar in decorating style and we do the same for movies now. I would rather be at home anyway. XO

I enjoyed your answers. I can be all over the place with decor too. I just want to be comfortable and love what I have
