Today there are only 2 Random Dozen questions:
1. What scares you the most
Why does it scare you, and how do you cope?
Physically, I'm terrified of mice and I'm terrified of heights. It's a toss-up between the two. I think the reason mice scare me is because one of my earliest memories is seeing a mouse jump out of a cereal box and my mother screaming. (Who wouldn't?) And the reason I'm afraid of heights is because I don't want to fall and hurt myself. I cope by buying lots of mice poison and never going higher than the second rung of a ladder.
Emotionally, the idea of losing one of my children scares me the most. I think that is a fear most moms have. I cope by reminding myself of 1 Corinthians 10:13 which tells me that God will not put more on me than I can bear. If ever I have to walk through that valley, He will carry me through it.
2. What comes to mind when you read the phrase, "Nothing gold can stay?"
When I hear "nothing gold can stay" I think of another phrase "this, too, shall pass." This is the way life is, nothing stays the same forever, both good and bad will pass away. Life is change.
