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.

SHARE YOUR WORLD 9-28-20

It is time to SHARE MY WORLD WITH YOU ALL AGAIN. This is the challenge where Melanie asks four or five questions and in answering them we all get to know each other a little better.

Over the last several weeks we have been sharing our world Harry Potter Style with our hosts Melanie and Roger, but this week we are back to a Share Your World Original led by Melanie. Thank you Roger for giving us some different avenues to consider for the last several weeks. Thank you Melanie for keeping this challenge fresh and fun every week for those of us who contribute.

Here are this week’s questions and my answers:

Where do you feel most at home?  Please be more specific than “at home, doh” please. It could be a room in your home, a person, a location…    

I think I feel most at home in what I call “The Sage’s Cave”.

It’s not a place really…more a state of mind. I guess most people would call it meditative prayer. I get really quiet. Sometimes soft instrumental music is playing in the background. I start by listening to or reading Scriptures as I “center down” as the Quakers call the practice. I listen for the still small voice of God and then I follow it where it leads. This place feels like home and is always an adventure.

Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car?

But since this is not me (are we even kidding. I would fall off and drown)…I guess I will take a car.

  What song would you sing on “Karoke Night” (if you were forced to do so)?    

Or

University or life experience, which do you feel best prepares you for life?  

I am a big proponent of life experience. When you find something you need to educate yourself about then it is wise to pursue that education.

IT’S AN ATTITUDE – GRATITUDE!  (Participation Always Optional Of Course)

What are you grateful for?

I am so grateful my mother’s cardiologist appointment went well and she does not need to return to him.
