Share Your World 2013 Week 2

Here are Cee Cee’s¬†four questions for the second week of 2013. I am writing from the overstuffed chair in my hotel room while my daughter’s nap after a long day of sightseeing. I have some great pictures coming your way soon from the wonderful state of PA!

What is your favorite color? I would like to say my favorite color is blue. That seems like it should be the right answer. But when I really think about my go-to colors for clothing I have to accept the fact that my favorite colors are black or brown…no not even truly brown more of a rust or burnt sienna. ūüôā

Favorite thing to photograph? Write? Or Cook? My favorite person to write about is Jesus and my favorite thing to cook is kielbasa casserole. Those two things are pretty much mutually exclusive (although I suppose if I had Jesus over for dinner I would serve him kielbasa casserole). So except for here you will probably never see the two things mentioned together again in a blog.

Name two of your best personality traits. Well let’s see… everyone except my children tells me that I am a pretty patient guy. I do believe strongly that good things come to those who wait. I also believe that we can solve a lot of our problems by sitting down and thinking things through patiently before acting; So I guess I would agree patience is one of my strong points. I think a second strong point is my ability to reason out problems. I am someone who likes to mull things over and think things through. I don’t like to react emotionally (for that reason I suppose some people think of me as cold). I think, though, that my ability to respond thoughtfully rather than react emotionally is another strength I possess.

What word or words are fun for you to say? And yes Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious¬†counts¬†as a¬†fun word! The word “copious” is a huge favorite…but if truth be told I like the word “verisimilitude” more.

Pastor Wrinkles: The Glory Of Story Pt. 7

We have made two points through the preceding posts about God’s glorious story called Earth:

1. God is the central figure and hero of His story

2. He has chosen you and me to be important character in the story. We have important parts to play.

But there is a third point in all this…

               You must intentionally choose to carry out your part of the story and there is a price you have to pay for your part.

 

Poet, Edgar A. Guest wrote
You are the person who has to decide. Whether you’ll do it or toss it aside; you are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you’ll lead or will linger behind. Whether you’ll try for the goal that’s afar. Or just be contented to stay where you are.

Have you made a decision to play the part God has given you? Have you estimated the cost of that part yet?

‚ÄúIf anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters‚ÄĒyes, even their own life‚ÄĒsuch a person cannot be my disciple.¬†27¬†And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.

28¬†‚ÄúSuppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won‚Äôt you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?¬†29¬†For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you,30¬†saying, ‚ÄėThis person began to build and wasn‚Äôt able to finish.‚Äô

31 “Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Won’t he first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand? 32 If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of peace. 33 In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples. Luke 14: 26-33 NIV
