The Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. How will you celebrate Easter this year?

Unfortunately, we will celebrate home, alone. Perhaps I will make a roast of some sort.

2. Is it easier for you to receive grace offered or extend grace to another? Explain. 

It is much easier for me to extend grace. I find it quite difficult to believe that I am even worthy of the care, love, and concern of others.

3. Do you say grace before meals? If so do you have a standard dinnertime grace or is it more ‘off the cuff’? Do you say grace when dining out? Do you have a favorite grace? Any special memory associated with ‘saying grace’?

We do not say grace. My husband never did it, and I have not forced him to. In my youth, I always said grace with my parents. My Dad said some really beautiful ones.

4. What are some challenges you think the next generation will face? (Generation Alpha-born between 2011 and 2025)

I believe they will have to learn how to work for what they have. Not every child, but so many are living in a world where there every wish is granted immediately. I also believe they will need to learn to appreciate what they have.

5. Share a favorite quote or lyric featuring the word faith.


6.  Insert your random thought here.

Now what kind of trouble do you think I could get into staying home and going nowhere? This morning I got an alert from my BJ’s Credit Card. A purchase had been made on my account in Wilmington, DE.

Now call me upset. Where have I been in the last month? Well, I got food and supplies at BJ’s on Friday the 13th of March. Now I have not been back there since.

I have a few credit cards and they are used at certain places. One for food. One for gas. (BJ’s) and one for Amazon purchases. That’s it.

Well, I must say that the Bank that handles the BJ’s Account was wonderful and they canceled the account, and will be issuing a new card.

So that is my Wednesday Hodgepodge. Truly a bunch of good questions that had me pondering the answers.

  1. “I find it quite difficult to believe that I am even worthy of the care, love, and concern of others”. Modesty is good. False modesty is not. You are liked around the world and you are loved by family. I expect you are treated with respect.

    The next generation will face all sorts of things that we never did, and that is how life has always been for the human race.

    I set up a gmail for my mother, never used. A hacking attempt was made from the US. My own gmail had a hacking attempt from Vietnam. Gmail’s alert system worked very well.

    Our banks are quite good at fraud detection.

  2. I agree with your answer to #4. They are a privileged generation, but maybe this is a little wake up call for them….and all of us. I hope, anyway, that we are all learning things and will come out the other side a little more patient and kinder to each other. Have a happy Easter!

  3. Thank you for the reminder that the GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE!!
    Also, my answer about the kids was much the same as yours. They have such instant gratification these days – I hope parents will still instill gratitude and patience in them.
    Happy Easter to you & yours.

  4. Yes, this next generation will have some unique challenges, but so has every generation in some way. There will be so many new type career choices and I trust they will be well equipped. Nice visiting with you this morning and may you have a Blessed Easter.

  5. Staying away from the deep thoughts ….

    Sorry about your card. Glad the bank took care of it. My daughter once had someone use her card to purchase$600 of computer equipment in Las Vegas …while she was in her apartment in NYC. I hate dishonesty…

  6. We had a card issue this week as well. Such a pain as we had multiple auto payments linked to that card. Just finished updating them all (hopefully). People have too much time on their hands I guess. You are definitely worthy of love, care, and the concern of others. Happy Easter to you!
