Today I am participating in the Hodgepodge Wednesday Volume 224. How Joyce can fit in the time to come up with all these questions while she's moving from one state to another, I surely do not know!

In my younger days I did some crazy stuff. In our first house I used Modge Podge to adhere nursery story pictures to our baby son's wall. My husband was decidedly NOT happy with that.
I have stenciled ivy vines above the baseboard of staircases and around door frames. I loved that.
Six years ago when I fell off the kitchen counter and shattered my shoulder while decorating above the kitchen cabinets, well, let's just say that I took that as a cue from the Lord that I needed to cut back on my home decorating ideas. I'm not as adventurous anymore.
Elizabeth Elliot passed away earlier this week at the age of 88 after suffering for about ten years with severe dementia. While I was saddened to read of her death, I know she is with the Lord in a wonderful place. Like so many other women, I was greatly influenced spiritually by Mrs. Elliot. She has left a fine example for us all. To read more about her, click here: http://www.christianitytoday.com/gleanings/2015/june/died-elisabeth-elliot-missionary-author-gates-of-splendor.html
