It’s time for SHARE YOUR WORLD again.
This is the challenge where our hostess, Melanie, asks us questions and in answering them we share our worlds!
Welcome to the new decade! Here are this week’s questions and my answers.
Is ‘hello” enough for you these days? (credit to Rory – https://aguycalledbloke.blog/2019/12/29/is-hello-enough-for-you-these-days/ ) Hello used to be enough for me. You see I had so many people to say “Hello!” to. Now I am realizing I never “have anyone at hello.” So I am focusing on deepening the meaning in my relationships this year. It means I somehow have to learn to do more and less.
Do you believe in Murphy? For those who aren’t familiar with Murphy, here’s a wee explanation: Murphy’s law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. I believe in the second law of thermodynamics which basically says “everything falls apart.” OK that is a bit of an oversimplification but you get the idea.
Does evil come from within? If so, why? According to the Bible evil (or sin) is a power that moves through the whole universe just as its converse love does. It moves in and through everything and because of choices our progenitors made evil has ensnared the human race and has produced its most powerful manifestation, death. Now that said God sent His Son Jesus so that through Him Evil could be undone in us. That is where our faith comes in. We connect to the work of God through Jesus by believing in it and trusting Him to do it.
Are intelligent people more or less happy than others? What defines intelligence? I am a firm believer in mulitple intelligences and I believe everyone has a form of it. We as people are most happy when we are using the intelligence God gave us. The problem is our culture does not esteem all intelligences equally and so we push people to strive in things which can only ever make them unhappy.

I am very grateful for the sky and for the fact that I get to live under it!
