I am not spending much time on my blog these days except to share with
1. Pokemon Go...your thoughts? Are you playing? Do you even know what it is?
I think it is just another craze that is fun for the moment and will be forgotten before too long.
I am not playing and really wasn't even familiar with it until one of my great-nephews cane running into the house at the family reunion a couple weeks ago, shouting, "I got him!" Who would have known a blue Pokemon would found on a rural country road in south Louisiana on a hot Saturday? But there he was.
I learned what it was right then and there.
2. What was something you collected as a child? Do you still have that collection? If you're a parent what's something your own children collected? Have you ever camped out, stood in a crazy long queue, or paid a ridiculous sum for a 'collectible'?
I don't really remember collecting anything other than Lightening Bugs as a small child. As I got older I began collecting pictures of Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural designs and favorite movie star's pictures. They all went by the way-side as interests and locations changed.
Son John collected Baseball cards and Daughter Christy had quite a large collection of Barbie Dolls.
I have never done any of these crazy things to secure a collectible.
3. "Collect moments, not things"...tell us about a moment you've added to your collection this summer.
The summer isn't over and neither is collecting special moments, but so far, I will say the time spent with family at the get-together a couple weeks ago and mentioned in last week's Hodgepodge.
4. What's something collecting dust in your home right now? Any plans to do something about it?
Nothing is collecting dust that I don't want to be there.
5. A favorite song relating to time?
Interesting you should ask because I just listened to the video of a friend of mine who is a one-man quartet, sing "Soon and Very Soon" we're going to meet the King. You might enjoy it as well.
6. What's been your most frightening or your most interesting encounter with wildlife?
This would have to be the most interesting and memorable because of how much our children enjoyed it. This was many years ago while on a trip in North Carolina. Love those two silly kids!
7. On July 20, 1969 Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong set his foot down on the moon. If you could travel to the moon would you go? Why or why not?
I remember that night well as I was one month and two days from delivering our first child. We didn't have church that Sunday night and instead gathered around the TV with several friends to watch it all take place. I have no desire to travel to the moon.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
So much has happened in our world in the past week that could easily defeat the non-believer and certainly discourage those of us who believe in an Almighty, Sovereign God.
Even in these troubling days there is one answer. There is one message that we must rely on and spread to the world.
"For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
Thank you Kaoma, for arranging and sharing this message that so beautifully reminds us of His great love in the midst of the storm.
Reminder: This is only one person singing all four parts.
