Joyce, you gave us some interesting things to ponder this week for
1. According to Oxford Dictionaries, the 2013 word of the year is 'selfie'. Your thoughts? When did you last take a selfie? Do you post them online somewhere? Do you prefer to be in front of the camera or behind the lens?
I do not like to take selfies. I took one the other day and it was a great shot looking up my nose. I much prefer being behind the lens.
2. Will you send out Christmas cards this year? If so, are they ready to go? If not, are you glad or sad about leaving that tradition behind?
Good question. The boxes of cards are on the counter and the Christmas address list is on the desk. Now, whether the two shall meet, remains to be seen. I like to receive cards, but am not excited about sending. Selfish? Or just something that is easy to put off doing?
3. Do you trust easily?
Yes and no. I am a bit of a skeptic by nature, I think. But, I want to believe the best in people. I don't have any problem trusting those I know and love, trusting my Lord and Savior, but I do often question the motives of others I may not know well.
4. Pine-cinnamon-peppermint-vanilla (as in sugar cookie)...of those listed, which one is your favorite December scent?
5. Did you do more talking or more listening yesterday? Was that by choice or necessity?
Does an even exchange count? We had lunch with dear friends who were in town on business and we had a good time of catching up and sharing. I think it was very well balanced.
6. What's the
Yesterday I made a reference to the Southern Gospel song sung by Steve Green, "Find Us Faithful," and I'm still hearing it.
7. Which world explorer (in the whole history of the world) would you most like to have traveled with, and why?
I've thought about this question and just don't have an answer. There must have been amazing experiences as places on this earth were discovered and explored, but I really can't think of any explorations I would have wanted to participate in. Times, living conditions and travel would have been extremely difficult, and I just don't think that is something I would have enjoyed. I shall continue to be grateful for these brave men and enjoy the bounty of their hard work.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I made a major decision this week! I decided to get rid of the good, old, well-used, cookie sheet that was a wedding present from 48 years ago when really practical gifts were given. It still bakes the best biscuits. Four to be exact. But, it is ugly. Is that reason enough for replacing an old friend? Well, it hasn't been enough of a reason until now.
I was strong though and after tossing it into the garbage barrel, I didn't look back and second guess myself. I marched right back into the kitchen and introduced myself to my new favorite cookie sheet and made a commitment to be faithful for another 48 years.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
