Cee’s Share Your World (SYW) is all about having a safe place for everyone to answer random questions that I post each week.
1. When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?
I prefer using fine point felt tip colored pens. I practiced calligraphy in elementary school with ink pens. I like to coordinate the colors of pens and the colors of paper or cards I write on. When writing on white paper, I use purple or darker lavender colored pens.
2. Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?
I am a singer. I used to be a frequent soloist when I was younger. I still sing in choirs.
3. If you were on a debate team, what subject would you relish debating?
I would debate on the subject of saving the rainforest. The rainforests sustain our lives. The more we eliminate the rainforests, the closer we are killing ourselves.
What are you a “natural” at doing?
I’m natural in listening, and helping others either by doing something or solving a problem.
This is the 52 Weeks of Thankfulness – Week 6 at Haddon Musings
I’m thankful this week for having 45 minutes of touching, contemplative Good Friday Concert presented by the Choir and orchestra tonight. The concert presented the message of the Lamb of God sacrificed Himself for our redemption. We were grateful that our new pastor was part of presentation. He read the scripture and prayed before our singing. He appreciated the choir’s service to the church.
The choir has been singing for over 50 years. Some of the members have been together from the beginning. We are not merely a choir but a family, a support group that uplifts each other. Some members are in their 60s, 70s, even 80s. In the first photo, the members in the front row were sitting down because of their physical limitation. They don’t let their physical conditions discourage their participation in singing. In fact, praising God with their voices becomes their strength.
The former pastor who stayed with us for only a couple years almost dismantled the choir. (The previous pastors stayed for 20 years each.) We went through a most difficult time in our choir history. Yet we still met and prayed together regularly even when we were not scheduled for singing.
The new pastor embraces all age groups of the congregation. He also appreciates classical, traditional, and contemporary music. The choir has a greater hope to be included in the services in the future.

Live in a world of competition
Friends or Foes full of ambition
Set eyes on them causes intimidation
Try to measure up may have limitation
Turn your eyes inward to find your passion
Turn your eyes upward to seek inspiration
Knowing there is only one of you in the whole creation
No one is like you, so create your specialization
With His blessings, target a higher ground with your own expectation

Daily Prompt: Measure
The offender never apologize
The inflictor will only deny
The sword of tongue so sharpen
The stabber laughs with his knife
He lives on merry go lucky
The hurt, the wound, the confusion
Caused by one with no conscience
The healing of the wound
Never comes from this person, but
Comes from letting go
As hard as it might be
Forgive him, set him free
The hurting heart is relieved
Ready to receive the healing from Above

Debbie’s Forgiving Connection: Forgiving Friday
My husband and I live in southern California. My daughter and her husband live in Portland Oregon. There is 1,000 miles in distance. We visit each other several times a year and go places together. My “wish” or “desire” has been that we live closer together. We could just hop over for dinner. We could have a game night until late, and still not too far away to get home. We could go for a walk and talk about everyday life. With technology, there’s no limit to send a text, get on the phone, or skype. Yet, there is nothing compare to being close by and able to do thing spontaneously.
