Share Your World 12-21-20

Well it is Christmas and almost all the presents are wrapped. I have some extra blogging time tonight so I thought I would SHARE MY WORLD WITH YOU ALL. This is the weekly challenge where Melanie, our hostess, asks several questions and in answering them we all share our worlds! When you have finished reading my answers check the link above and see what Melanie’s other guests have said.

HERE WE GO:

QUESTIONS

  • What is your favorite type of cookie (they’re called biscuits in Europe I believe)? My grandmother used to make these cookies at Christmas time from figs and coconut. She called them Mission Balls. So good.
  • If you could choose one age and remain that forever, what would it be and why? I would be twenty-five. Young enough to still try anything and old enough to know better.
  • Do you have a traditional drink during the holiday season? This year we are making homemade Wassail. I think it will be our new tradition.
  • Are you able to still believe in holiday magic as you did when you were a child? I think I believe in it more now than I did then. The magic is different but it is definitely real.

GRATITUDE SECTION:

My daughter and son-in-law are self isolating this week, as Melanie is heading into hospital next week for the birth of her second child. We will miss them at Christmas but so look forward to meeting little Abigail Yvaine!

EVENING MEDITATION 12-21-20

Good people obtain favor from the Lord,
    but he condemns those who devise wicked schemes.

No one can be established through wickedness,
    but the righteous cannot be uprooted.

A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown,
    but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.

The plans of the righteous are just,
    but the advice of the wicked is deceitful.

The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood,
    but the speech of the upright rescues them.

The wicked are overthrown and are no more,
    but the house of the righteous stands firm.

A person is praised according to their prudence,
    and one with a warped mind is despised.

Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant
    than pretend to be somebody and have no food.

10 The righteous care for the needs of their animals,
    but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.

11 Those who work their land will have abundant food,
    but those who chase fantasies have no sense. PROV. 12:2-11

GIVE ME AN EXAMPLE OF NOBLE CHARACTER.
