Share Your World 2016 Week 26

Well it has been weeks and weeks since I have shared my world. At least that is how it feels. For those of you who may have forgotten how this works, every week Cee Neuener. Share Your World’s Hostess, asks five questions. In answering them we (her contributors) share our worlds with you (our readers).



Now here are her questions and my answers:

What’s your most memorable (good or bad) airplane flight?

I love flying. I think my favorite flight though was aboard Iceland Air heading to the Netherlands. Flying into Keflavik was simply amazing. It felt like I was flying over the moon.


How many bones, if any, have you broken?

I am one of those fortunate few who have never broken a bone (where’s the nearest piece of wood to knock on). I have sprained my ankle quite a few times badly enough to need crutches but no breaks.

If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (guest can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know) Adam (first question “What were you thinking?”),  Elijah ( First question, “Was the chariot of fire hot?”), Jeremiah ( First question, “How did you keep it together when  no one would listen?”)

Make a Currently List: What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating, needing, wanting, and missing right now?

I am currently reading: Psalms, Nearer To God: How To Pray With Prophetic Power,  The Floating Island

I am currently watching:


This very moment I am listening too:

Needing, wanting, missing? Nothing I am content and replete.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am grateful that I got to preach on Sunday last…you can find the sermon in excerpted form on my sermons page entitled “RUN?”

I am looking forward to going to the zoo on July 4th with my daughter and trying out my new camera.


Share Your World 2016 Week# 6

It’s time to open up and share with Cee again. Check out SHARE YOUR WORLD BY CLICKING HERE. It is an awesome site.

Generally contributors are asked five questions and our answers help us share our lives with the blogosphere. This week we get to share double thanks to  The Happy Quitter Blog

Here are this week’s questions and my answers:

What is your favorite word?

I really love words. Some of my favorites are lullaby, mystical and loquacious. The word I use the most is probably Groovy

  What is your least favorite word?

This is actually a pretty hard question. I am not a big fan of the word bombastic.

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?

Being in the presence of God through prayer, worship or study of the Scripture really gets me going. Writing and reading also really trigger something deep inside.

What turns you off?

Complaining and criticism that is not thought out.

What is your favorite curse word?

I don’t curse. Maybe “darn” or “shucks” or “bummer dude”.

What sound or noise do you love?

I love the sound of the ocean waves or a waterfall. I love birdsong.

What sound or noise do you hate?

Incessant prattle and mean-spirited banter.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

I have tried many professions and I am very content with being a minister.

What profession would you not like to do?


If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

“Well done Thou good and faithful servant enter into the joy of the Lord!”

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am so happy to have gotten some walls painted in our upstairs hallway during my vacation. I am looking forward to our concert at the Lifeskills program this week.
