Share Your World April 24, 2017

I have been a regular contributor to SHARE YOUR WORLD for several years now. It is a great weekly challenge to build community and to get the brain juices flowing for creative writing.

You can see how the world has shared itself in five questions by clicking the underlined link above. The five weekly questions posed by our hostess, Cee, and my answers are below

Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?

My go to drink during the day is coffee. But that is more of an energy boost admittedly and not a thirst quencher. When I am really thirsty lately I have been drinking cold cold cold water.

Complete this sentence:  Never In My Life Have I…. 

There are so many nevers….I have never jumped out of an airplane. I have never bungi jumped. I have never ridden a donkey into the Grand Canyon. I have never been to Portland Oregon. See lots of nevers. Most of those are probably really unimportant if I never do them my life will probably go on without to much regret.

I bet though that Cee is not after all the little nevers. What are the big nevers? I guess my biggest never is that I have never doubted there was a God. Even when I didn’t know who he really was…even when I thought He was someone else (and yes I did worship other gods before I became a Christian), I never doubted that He was.

If you could be given any gift what would it be?

The gift of greater knowledge of God.

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something productive?

I actually make up stories. One of my favorite is that I am laying on my bed and it is suddenly in the middle of space. I am a watcher looking in on another world and all its goings on. Weird huh?

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am grateful that God has given me an answer as to whether I am to pursue the lead pastorate at Cornerstone Church now that our current lead, Pastor Risto, has answered a call back in his native Canada. I am grateful that I was able to share that answer with the congregation at Cornerstone on Sunday morning. I am not to pursue that position in case you were wondering.

I am looking forward to the search which is about to take place for our new lead pastor. I am looking forward to meeting our new interim pastor.

I feel a little like Galadriel having defeated her inner battle to take the One Ring Of Power.

Ok maybe it is not quite that grand or scary but…

  1. You should turn your nighttime stories into a book. Seriously, that sounds like a really good story-line for a fantasy or science fiction novel. 🙂

      • Oh, I’m not up on comic book characters. You think that would be as a mother to four boys but I’ve never heard of the Watcher. I guess it wouldn’t work unless you can totally come up with a different type of watcher living in another world, and give him or her a different name and job description. 😀

      • Hmm. I will have to think on that one. I am currently starting the first draft of a story which I grabbed from one of the Friday Fictioneers posts I wrote a few weeks back. And I am finishing the final draft of my first novel hopefully soon to be published.

    • I have been to Portland ME and it is very pretty but nothing like the pictures you show. I would so love to come. It is my 50th birthday this year and so far I have a trip to FL planned and maybe a trip to PA but nothing West of the Rockies. If by some miraculous chance I do get out there perhaps we will have to meet for coffee. 🙂 Or tea.
