Share you world is a challenge in which our hostess Melanie asks some questions and in answering them we, her contributors, Share Our Worlds!
Here are the weekly questions:
QUESTIONS FOR THIS WEEK:
Name two books that have influenced you and share how. (Credit for this question goes to Teresa of The Haunted Wordsmith. She asked for TEN books, in her challenge, so the SYW folks got off a bit easy..)
The most influential book I have ever read is The Bible. This book took me off the path of the New Age and put me on the pathway of eternal life with Jesus.
The second most influential book is a really hard choice. Maybe Seven Habits for Highly Effective People by Steven Covey…Maybe Visioneering by Andy Stanley…It might even have been a genre, comic books which gave me my love for reading in the first place.
In your opinion, where is the line between art and not art?
In my mind real art influences and inspires people. If it doesn’t influence, if it doesn’t inspire then it probably isn’t art, but only probably. It is art after all, there are no hard and fast rules.
Trivia for Halloween: What item is banned only during Halloween from 12am October 31st to 12pm November 1st in Hollywood California? (I know the answer, but I do not have any idea WHY)..c’mon…hazard a guess!
Silly String? Really?!? I Googled it. The truth is, I get it. My youth group once silly stringed my home. Did you know silly string once it dries peels the paint off of anything it is touching when you remove it? It can take the paint off of…cars…front porches….kids toys…swimming pools… yes anything!
What is something that really annoys you but doesn’t bother most people? Most people like my singing voice. Honestly though my voice kind of bugs me. I would like to listen to myself and really enjoy what I am hearing. Generally I don’t so I try to limit how much I listen to myself.
Instead of our usual gratitude question, I’m posing this one for this week:
What or who in your life brings you the most joy?
Prayer is my joy center.
