Share Your World 3-23-20

Well, I think I am back in full swing from my week to 10 days of sickness! I am not quite what you would call well, but well enough to get back into the swing of the pen.

I have missed all my friends in the blogosphere! I am so grateful to those of you who prayed me through this pneumonia and to those of you who dropped me notes telling me it was OK to rest. Honestly I couldn’t have done otherwise. I slept for four days! I have slept for a full day before when I was sick but to lose half a week!!!! I am also grateful to my sister who posted a few times on Notes From the Vicarage to keep our followers there updated.

Speaking of my sister, Brenda, you can now keep her in prayer because she has developed shingles and pink eye as well as an ear infection! She always was a bit of a competitor. 🙂

Anyway this is SHARE YOUR WORLD. While the update above does share my current world it does not answer the challenge itself which is to answer my friend Melanie’s targeted questions for the week. Soooooo……. Here are the questions and my answers. PLease check out Melanie’s site when you are done and discover how her other ccontributors have SHARED THEIR WORLDS.

On A Scale Of 1-10, How Strict Were Your Parents?

My parents were not what you would call strict at all morally. They expected good behavior and demanded personal responsibility on a very high level, but their thoughts on things like drinking, smoking, sex were pretty progressive. I was far more conservative when it came to those things than they were and maybe that was their trick of parenting.

What Wastes The Most Time In Your Day To Day Life?

Television is my biggest time waster. I am coming to hate it.

Do They Bury People With Their Braces* On?   (* “braces” in this scenario are those metal bits they put on people to straighten their teeth.   I realize “braces” are also some item of clothing that I believe men wear to keep their socks up or something.  I’m talking about the teeth option).

I have no idea? I am interested to know the thought behind this question though.

Why Does A Round Pizza Come In A Square Box?

I can only imagine a round box would be harder to carry and mre expensive to make.

Gratitude:   Share something you are grateful for right now.  I know that’s a tough question.  It helps to share those bright bits with folks though, because many of us are seeing through an increasingly dark glass.

I am grateful that the sun still rises on this world. I am also very grateful that my hope is not in this world. I am holding out for another life that is a whole lot longer than this one and where the problems of this world will not be known. As Paul the apostle said, “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!”

I just have to keep reminding myself that these present issues are temporary and that Jesus has something better for me which is coming.

  1. Thanks Joseph for Sharing Your World! I’m so glad to hear that you are on the mend and feeling better! Pneumonia is nothing to fool with and can be hard to best, congratulations on doing so! The ‘braces’ question was just a random one in a list of conversation stimulator questions. I’d never thought about it, but my own theory is ‘sure’. Those braces aren’t going to fit anyone else, and if the person is young and taken early so to speak, the parents are probably in too much shock to worry about such a tiny thing. Thanks for your participation! 🙂
