GREAT GUGGAMUGGA! This week’s sharing questions 1 and 3 are really hard! You can find how other people responded at
Here are the questions and my answers
List 2 things you have to be happy about?
2 things I have to be happy about? Is it like I am forced to be happy about these things even though I really don’t want to be? Is the reason I have to be happy about them because everyone else is happy about them and I don’t want to be the odd man out? Or is the reason I have to be happy about them because I can’t do anything to change them. so being happy is just a way of moving on and not getting stuck in bitterness? Or is my forced happiness because what has happened is really a good thing but it makes me sad?
I’m sorry what was the question?
Do you prefer ketchup or mustard or mayonnaise?
Deep breath of relief that question 1 is answered (or not)! Mayo all the way. I am not a big ketchup fan
If you were to paint a picture of your childhood, what colors would you use?
I had to stop and think what the picture would actually look like for this one. Is it a moment in time? Or is it a collage of events all smashed together on one canvas? I think it has to be a collage. The center is a brown wooden cross surrounded by smatterings of red and white. In the upper left hand corner is a portrait of a much younger me standing at a brown podium in a white polyester suit with one blue button, one orange button and one red button giving a Memorial Day Speech in fifth grade. The upper right hand corner is dark maybe pen and ink and shows me being bullied in gym class. The lower left hand has two scenes blended together One half is a room with brown pine paneling the other is stark white rustic camp walls. I am seated with my family in both pictures enjoying dinner. The lower right hand corner is me standing in the middle of a choir in a pink sanctuary singing.
Do you prefer a bath or shower?
Another deep sigh of relief. Question 3 took a lot of thinking muscle. I like a shower. However when I travel I always take a really hot bath and if the place I am staying has one a hot tub!
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am so grateful that I got to preach twice last week. The titles of the messages I shared were: Whose Vision Are You and Complete Worship. This week I have the opportunity to bring communion out to our local Visiting Nurses Dayhab and on Saturday we have C.cada!
