REFLECTIONS

Not sure who’s challenge this belongs to; BOTH; the word “reflection” seems to be quite popular today, perhaps because we are at the end of the year, and it seems natural to reflect. The unfinished picture, our life! “I am walking in a path by which I shall not return.” Job 16;23
We can not retrace not one step; whatever we have done (exactly) today is done. Never to have that little or hour back, which hopefully it was not wasted time. I may have other opportunities to please God, but the past is the past. Reflect on that for the New Year!

Share your World

A New Year, what’s next?

One good reason to participate in this challenge known as Share-your-world is to allow you to examine your conscience, a big something for me!

See the questions by clicking above to share your world. We want to know!

For New Year’s Eve, I will be sleeping at my age but will awake slightly when I hear the much younger generation celebrating with what they call making as much noise as possible. Jan 1, 2022, I will attend Holy Mass, a Holy Day described on the Traditional Catholic calendar. 

Next year, let us all pray God will give us all the following year. His patience is incredible; perhaps He will only purify the world as He did in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The greatest lesson I learned is that I don’t need to wear that mask everywhere as in 2020. Grateful too, that most people if not all in my area also figured that out!  

Share your World

Sure I’ll Share my Views

You may not like them, but my conscience is a peace. What are your views shared here!

What is your opinion of the state of health care in your country? Adequate or inadequate? What could be done to improve it

My opinion is it is going into a slippery downhill; today, more than ever we have to take matters into our own hands by learning how to stay healthy. 

To improve it, the people must vote for honest politicians, people who care about their own families, which will result in caring for others.

What are two words that describe you best?

 Love of my Faith without compromise, and I am a creative person.

Do you have a morning routine? If so, what it’s like?

Talking to God, praying my rosary, planning what duties I have to do this day, and doing them. I enjoy picking out a challenge or two, but no more than that, I have a busy life beyond my BLOG. 

What’s something that really makes your blood race? 

Sexual abuse of children and mothers who DEFEND To kill their own, (abortion).  

However, I do believe there is no sin greater than the mercy of God (WHEN SORRY.)

Do you enjoy singing festive songs during *insert festive celebration that you observe to replace “Christmas” if it’s not relevant to you * Christmas carols or songs?

I love Christmas and wonder at the power of God; only He can bless all! AS He inspires even atheists, or those of other faiths, as we celebrate the Birth of Christ by our decorations, songs, spreading Christmas joy and cheer.

No matter what they call it, it is Christmas!

Only 6Sentence, Photo Challenge

INSIDE OUT … or! Outside In?

This challenge is wrought through the inspiration of the photograph below:

Photo credit Michael Mehrhoft

The photo above reminds me of someone who is wholeheartedly committed to bringing the outside inside.
Too much of a good thing can create a mess, as the picture proves.
Yet, a person, you or I, reserves the right to hide our inside by bringing out the outside.

We only see the outside of a person, but what is inside, God sees.


We as a person know what is inside of ourselves, supposing we don’t like what we see in ourselves, we at times turn ourselves inside out.
“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” ~Carl Jung

Share your World

Sharing my World — you might think is boring

Melanie asks over at SYW

but I am happy, and at peace, HOWEVER, I MADE MY MISTAKES like everyone else.

Yes, I would enjoy to share my world with the entire world OR AT LEAST THE READERS God placed here on Word Press.

Questions with my answers below:

In your opinion, what should be humanity’s goal?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if humanity would make the Ten Commandments of God the goal of life? OR AT LEAST TRY!

Are you hesitant to speak your opinions?

My opinion is usually not as complicated as most I read here on these blogs. Two wrongs don’t make a right, and another good one I learned in school is. Good is right even if no one is doing it and wrong; bad choices are still evil even if the WHOLE WORLD IS DOING IT.  

In what ways has society changed during your lifetime? What do you think caused these changes?

I love to watch old movies, the ones they call vintage classic these days; watching a few, you will see for yourself how society has changed, and it’s all there on record. No doubt about it, the people in those days knew they were either men or women.   

If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow this person to be your friend?

I have the very best friend that speaks to me, corrects me, and causes me a lack of sleep at times. It is my conscience. THIS Gratitude section allows opportunity when thinking of my friends that speak to me in the same way; I speak because I am so grateful to God for finding me an organization of like-minded friends who help each other in every way possible.

dVerse

dVerse Poetics — One True Sentence

Here at dVerse, Hemingway’s idea sparked the idea for today’s challenge.
While considering if I should or skip this challenge, the decision came quickly while watching a UTube video about a teaching from a particular Orthodox elder. Although I follow the Traditional Catholic teaching before Vatican II, I find the Orthodox elders often are very wise with their words.
Writing the poem quickly after being inspired by the Orthodox elder, choosing the True Sentence from Hemingway came second as per dVerse suggested quotes.

It is very hard to write this way
Beginning things backward...

Where is my time?
I need more time
It can't be over!

I see something ahead
The next world is before me
Everything is behind me.

I am leaving taking  only
Conscience and my will.
That is all I take!

My freewill I leave behind,
It is fixed; fixed forever with 
That last breath. 

Beginning of eternity! 
Ah! Another Challenge
