Share Your World - 2016 Week 4

What one thing are you really glad you did yesterday?
I'm really glad I got around 1300 words written on the next chapter in my book. That is nothing less than answered prayer. So to my faithful prayer warriors who know how I'm struggling with this book, thank you! Also glad that I finished my second crochet project, a prayer shawl that turned out much wider and heavier than I anticipated. But I'm getting better at this new craft, so I'm pressing on to project number three.

Are you generally focused on today or tomorrow?
I'm usually focused on today, because if I don't take care of today's things, it affects tomorrow. That means I plan today what I need to do so my tomorrow runs more smoothly. So maybe I'm focused on both?

Would you want a guardian angel/mentor? What would they tell you right now?
I've always loved this guardian angel picture. I believe I do have lots of guardian angels. Here's what the Bible says about that:
"For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways" (Psalm 91:11).
"See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven" (Matt. 18:10). 
What my angels would tell me is not to put my trust in them, but in the God who commands them. He is the only One worthy of my complete trust and angels can do nothing without Him.

Would you rather live in a cave house or a dome house made out of glass? 
This is a tricky one for me. I tend to be claustrophobic, so a cave house might be out (you can read about that here). But I'm also a very private person who wouldn't like a see-through glass house. I suppose curtains could fix that though. And I do love sunshine pouring into my house. So I guess I'd rather live in a glass dome house. Bring on the window coverings. I might be able to manage one like this.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? (Because we all need to be reminded that there are many things in our lives to be grateful about.)
I'm grateful for little bits of news that give me hope and things to look forward to. News from family, new opportunities to work and serve all encourage me and give me purpose. Next week I'm looking forward to my church's Good Friday service, which always puts my mind and heart in the right place to celebrate with gusto on Easter Sunday.

  1. I also love that guardian angel picture. My aunt in Germany had a print in her home.
