Share Your World, 2014 – Week 40

Exif JPEGAs part of sharing my world, I’m including a picture of tonight’s full moon from my front porch.  Doesn’t God do nice work?

Now for the questions.

Question # 1:  You’re given $500,000 tax free (any currency). What do you spend it on?

I think I would establish a Bible college.

Question # 2:  What’s the finest education?

I believe the only truly excellent  education must begin with knowing God. His holy Word says that “the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom,” and that “in Jesus Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”

Question # 3:  What kind of art is your favorite? Why? 

When I think of art, I think of all manner of expression, including painting, sculpting, music, writing, woodworking, and a number of other endeavors that require gifted minds and hands. So I don’t think I can possibly say I have only one favorite.  Naturally, I love writing, and I have been a musician most of my life, so I couldn’t bear to think of living without that. However, I have always wanted to be able to draw and paint as well, and I never really got brave enough to try until this past year. So far I have done several sketches, and I’ve invested in some paints, some canvas, and some brushes, and I am only now beginning to venture into that mysterious realm.

Question # 4:  Is there something that you memorized long ago and still remember?

Yes, several things actually. But the very first thing that came to my mind was Psalm 51 in the Holy Bible. I remember being in vacation Bible school one summer when I was about 6th or 7th grade. We could get a special reward if we memorized a whole passage of scripture by a specific time on the last day of the VBS, and one of our choices was Psalm 51.  I had chosen Psalm 51, but I hadn’t worked on it as hard as I should have and was running out of time.

So  the evening before the final day I prayed fervently. God knew I was serious, and I told him that if He would help me memorize Psalm 51 in time to recite it the next morning and get the reward, I promised Him that I would ALWAYS remember it.

Well, I have to admit that over the years I did let some of it slip from my immediate memory, but later in my early adulthood, the Lord reminded me of that promise, and I went back to that Psalm and refreshed my memory.

Don’t forget, if you’d like to share some of your world with us as well, hop over to Cee’s blog to get the details.
