SHARE YOUR WORLD FROM 10-5-20

Well I am getting an early jump once again on THE SHARE YOUR WORLD CHALLENGE. This is the challenge where our hostess Melanie asks a few questions, and in answering them, we all share our worlds. Check it out by clicking the uinderlined link.

Here are the questions and my answers:

When was the last time you tried something new?  How did that go for you?

I feel like the whole world is new and is requiring “new things” of us. I guess the newest thing I am doing is attempting to be an on-lne pastor. That means when I “go” to church, while the rest of the congregation is in the sanctuary listening to our lead preacher preach, I am out in the lobby managing the on-line presence. I am actually having a really good time with it.

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?

Follow Jesus. You will never be sorry.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

Much older. Most days I feel like I am ready for my retirement cabin…then I look at my retirement account and say to myself, “Back to work Lillie or all you have is a retirement sleeping bag.”

Lastly, I’ll be doing one “Halloween” themed question per week during October.  Those who don’t observe the holiday are welcome to answer or to ignore it as they wish.

Fun  CREEPY Halloween Question:

Have you ever seen a ‘fresh’ corpse (aka dead body)?

Yes. Our neighbor died raking his lawn. My oldest daughter saw him fall and called to us. He was gone in a moment of time.

Do you enjoy any seasonal traditions around this time of year?

In an ordinary year I would be enjoying some our region’s many Fall festivals. I love Apple Fests and Pumpkin Fests.

Some of our local apple orchards are still having such things (I really don’t know how but…), but I don’t feel safe going; So this year I am just making lots of baked apple dishes. I have even been considering making a batch of cider myself.

  1. Thanks Joseph for Sharing Your World! I bet you could make some tasty apple cider if you found the time. It does take a bit of time and I know that’s one of your more precious commodities. It’s good to hear your congregation can access church on-line that way. What a wonderful idea and I’m sure they enjoy listening to your words! I had to laugh at the idea of the ‘retirement sleeping bag’. That is sadly so true for many who are entering their alleged ‘golden years’, isn’t it? I’m sure the Lord will provide for you though, although I do understand that having enough faith in Him and His blessings can be difficult. The Apple and Pumpkin Festivals are probably a really mixed bag and it’s prudent to remain away from such events right now, our Peach Days Festival up here was severely curtailed, although I found out that many gathered together anyway for an impromptu parade down Main Street. A LOT of people without masks standing crowded together. I missed seeing a parade, but I’m not going to get sick either. One has to choose their battles and festivals I guess. Have a great week!

    • Thanks for the kind words Melanie. This is a season where we are all being forced to pick our battles and decide on the sacrifices we are going to make. I am finding that most of the battles our culture is fighting are really not worth dying for. So I mask, do my best to social distance and stay home as much as possible…especially since we have one at home here who is immuno-
