Share Your World 11-26-18


I didn’t get to Share My World last week. I got overly busy and missed out on one of my favorite challenges in the blogosphere.

This week is my birthday week so I am giving myself a little kindness and am making sure I share this week.

Here are Melanie’s weekly sharing questions. When you have finished reading my responses please click the underlined link and shoot over to Melanie’s place at Sparks From a Combustible Mind and read what her other contributors have written.


If your five year old self woke up in your current body, what would happen, what would you say?

My five year old self would say “Wow you are fat! And apparently wicked smart!”

What is a relationship deal breaker for you?  Whether you are talking about a romantic one, a friendship or a related to sort of relationship?

The bar has to be set differently for every relationship as do the boundaries. The respect for the boundaries of each relationship determine my willingness to maintain the relationship in its current context. Disrespect the boundaries one too many times and you may find yourself placed in a whole new relationship box.

Is there something out there, a thought, an idea, a current event, or a fear that you find deeply unsettling?

I found this whole video deeply unsettling. We face so many questions as a culture that I wonder if we even have the right to ask. Further there are so many things going on that echo the biblical signs of the end that I cannot help but be a little unsettled by the nearness of it all.

And one that is a bit whimsical:

I need more whimsy in my life. Right now everything seems so serious. Oh  wait! I know!

If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?

Preached without a license.


What were you grateful for this week?  Something that brought some joy into your world?

It was my birthday!

  1. Many happy returns! You know that birthday cake is without guilt and calories, right? So feast! 😉 Thanks for Sharing Your World and the lovely complement about it being one of your favorite exercises! I’m sure the gracious Cee would approve too. I’m rather taken aback that you, too, notice these signs about the end of times. I thought maybe it was just those like myself, who are more than a bit paranoid and who tend to read things into situations that aren’t there sometimes. But more and more the clergy (of all denominations) are coming out with warnings about the end coming and that right soon. Well. We’ve been anticipating it for a long time, and perhaps it IS time. Man is falling faster than wings can elevate him.

    • What you say is so very true Melanie. As Jesus said it is important that His followers are watchful and ready. Our staff here at the church has been watching with dismay as so many have left behind their preparedness for the love of the world.
