Chatting on the Deck – Juice and Jingles


“Chats on the Farmhouse Porch” is a group of friends
gathering to visit,
sip their favorite beverages,
nibble delicious treats
and share their likes and dislikes.

Patrice and Wendell have invited me to join the chatting.
Patrice provides the questions,
we answer.

Are you looking forward to fall?

YES, I love the fall. tree  nove 18Our beautiful undressing Maple tree.

What are the three best colors for you to wear, and the three worst?

This is hard, I have a very limited wardrobe. I like purple, teal, and black. Orange and pinks don’t do anything for me.

What is your favorite kind of juice? If you are not into juice, you can tell us your favorite flavor of soda, tea, coffee, Tang, mud, etc.

I like Tomato juice and Orange Juice.

Have you ever been in the hospital (at least an overnight)? You don’t need to share the ailment, but tell us what the longest time is.

When I was 19, I was in the hospital for 6 weeks, less a day to go to church.

Do jingles, songs from ads, and TV or movie themes stick in your head? Do you find yourself singing them? (This question means that I’m trying to find out if I’m the only crazy person who sings quirky stuff!)

That is easy, at random times, without any prompting, I break out with: “I’m an Oscar Meyer Wiener!” I could not resist adding this commercial,  Oscar Meyer Wiener, 1965.

Isn’t it fun to chat? Join us here.

July 31, Today’s Thought-Render Unto God

july2212 duplication 002My heart yearns to walk in His paths,
according to His way marks.

Good Morning

Matthew 22:15-22

Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel
how they might entangle him in his talk.
And they sent out unto him their
disciples with the Herodians, saying,
Master, we know that thou art true,
and teachest the way of God in truth,
neither carest thou for any man:
for thou regardest not the person of men.
Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou?
Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said,
Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
Shew me the tribute money.
And they brought unto him a penny.
And he saith unto them,
Whose is this image and superscription?
They say unto him, Caesar’s.
Then saith he unto them,
Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s;
and unto God the things that are God’s.
When they had heard these words, they marvelled,
and left him, and went their way.

Render unto God the things that are God’s

What things of God do I possess?
The heart, soul, mind, and strength
Praise and thanksgiving
Time and Talents

Render – verb

1. To submit or present, as for consideration, approval, or payment: render a bill.
2. To give or make available; provide: render assistance.
3. To give what is due or owed: render thanks; rendered homage.
4. To give in return or retribution: He had to render an apology for his rudeness.
5. To surrender or relinquish; yield.

Render – noun

A payment in kind, services, or cash from a tenant to a feudal lord.

Proverbs 3:27
Withhold not good from them to whom it is due,
when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

Meditating, am I rendering to God all He desires and deserves?
Or am I withholding a part?
With my payers, desiring yours, Leslie
