Annie at McGuffy's Reader and Ellen at 15andmeowing are co-hosting a fun weekly meme called  Friendly Fill-In'sAll you have to do to participate is complete the statements and link your post up hereThis is a fun way to get to know each other a little better!

Here are the this week's statements:

1. When I run out of  _____________, I use _____________ instead.

2. My guru is  __________________.

3.  I am afraid of  __________________.

4.  I feel empowered  ___________________.

Here are my answers:

1. When I run out of  excuses, I use humor instead. :-)

2. My guru is Jesus.  There are others such as Mother Teresa, and followers who are still living, that show us how we can live in the footsteps of the Master.

3.  I am afraid of losing the people I love, especially Papa Bear. I also worry about us not being able to take care of ourselves as we grow older.

4.  I feel empowered when I make a suggestion or a decision and it turns out to be a good one. 



  1. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, you always have great answers. Losing those we love is a very scary thought. Excellent guru choice,can't go wrong following Jesus. Have a nice weekend!

  2. #3 That's where I'm at, too. David's strokes were an in-your-face reminder that it could be over at any time. We wonder often how we're going to take care of each other as we get older and our health continues to worsen. What if we get to a point where we can't take care of each other, what then? It is a lot to think about and consider. We aren't supposed to worry, but I can't figure out how to avoid it when it comes to things like this.

    I pray that you'll have your Papa Bear for a long, long time and that you will be able to take care of each other each step of the way as you get older.

    Have a blessed weekend!

  3. Great answers. Using humor can certainly help us get through the hard places in life.

  4. Jesus makes a great guru. We often wonder what we will do when we grow older. We just have to leave that in God's hands.

  5. Lovely answers! I agree with you.
    Hope we all use humour, trust in God & feel empowered.

  6. Josie, I often use humor when I know my excuses are stupid, which makes me look more stupid to use them. :) The big J.C. is totally rocks my life. I'm thankful for the Christian influence surrounding me growing up. I believe we're all afraid at some point of losing those dearest to us, and then as you mentioned it's frightening to think about how will we care for ourselves or our spouses as we get old. That concerns me at times, too. Accomplishments are definitely empowering. It makes me want to do more and that's a good thing. Your answers mirror the way I feel and even some of my responses this week. I appreciated you stopping by yesterday and I hope you swing back by to listen to my featured artist on Saturday Songsuasion. Have a songsational day! ;)

  7. I feel the same way about #3. Hope you have a great week!

  8. Humor is always a big help when an excuse is needed. I understand #3 but know #2 is the answer to that fear as it is to all fear.

  9. Humor is something I use as a last resort also!

    : )

  10. Good, genuine answers. You know how I feel about #2. In the Catholic faith, the Pope is the one filling Christ's shoes. He said that to Peter, the first Pope. Along with the Pope, I have many who teach me, including Gandhi, Buddha, and the divine Mother Teresa. He canonization is coming up and i am so excited! Hugs.
    I always read the fill-ins on Friday and then get back to them to comment. Weekends are so hectic right now, but will settle down as we get into Fall. Thank you for participating in the Friendly Fill-Ins. We appreciate your participation. Hugs.
