Share Your World–2016 Week 36

Share Your World

Week 36? I think this happened last year, too–suddenly! I’m late getting started this week. After being cooped up early in the weekend by Hermine, then getting caught up on our sleep, Monday was the Perfect Day to work in the yard. Tuesday was the Perfect Day for a massage. Slowly, life is returning to normal. 

Here are Cee’s questions, let get started!

If you were given a boat or yacht today, what would you name it?  (You can always sell the yacht later)
I can honestly say this is something I’ve never thought about! Sea Sick should work.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best?  (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be?
I’m caught up on my sleep, so Sleepy is out. I stopped taking Zyrtec, no longer Dopey; may morph into Sneezy soon. 

Name a song or two which are included on the soundtrack to your life?
Looking for Love in all the Wrong Places and Amazing Grace


Complete this sentence:  I like watching…
birds and butterflies.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful tropical storm Hermine was kind to us, and I’m looking forward to a Sweet 16 birthday soon! No, not mine. Second granddaughter’s.

Six Word Friday–Captive

Six Word Fridays has a new address! It has moved from Melissa’s blog to Adrienne’s blog. Come and play along. Six words are all you need to bring!

I had some time on my hands today, waiting…so I multiplied my six words by six and came up with this:

My sin bound me in chains,
Held captive by my own desires.
Tho the blood of Jesus redeemed
My companions Guilt and Shame remained.
Their chains held fast my heart
Until Amazing Grace set me free.

OH! Had a wonderful surprise today, too: I’m going to be a grandma again!





Six-word Friday + River of Stones, Jan.13

The prompt for this week’s Six Word Friday is Lost and Found. These words are found in one of my all-time favorite hymns.
By John Newton–lyrics found here: 

This is my six-word adaptation:

Words from the song, “Amazing Grace.”
Jesus saved a wretch like me.
I was lost; now I’m found,
Was blind, but now I see.
Grace brought me safe thus far,
And Grace will lead me home.

For today’s small stone, the thing I am mindfully pondering is Grace. Not a tangible thing to be seen with the eye, but its evidence on a countenance may be discerned. It may go unnoticed altogether, overlooked. But when experienced, praise surely will burst forth.
