Simeon Meets Jesus


Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: 

“Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.”

Luke 2:28-32

Sunday Stealing


1. If someone wanted to really understand you, what would they read, watch, and listen to?

They would listen to the story of someone rescued from darkness. 

They would watch a baby learning to stand, then crawl, then walk.

They would listen to the joyful sound (simcha) of a person born blind who can suddenly see. They would read the Word of God, the Bible, cover to cover, slowly, with purpose.

2. Have you ever found a writer who thinks just like you? 

Frank Herbert, maybe.

3. Do you care about your ethnicity? 

It doesn't matter, but I am curious.

4. What musical artists have you most felt connected to over your lifetime? 

Before the Lord changed my heart, a plethora of screaming ninnies as blind as me. 

Now, none.

5. Are you an artist? 


6. Dog person or cat person? 

More dog than cat, though more alpaca and llama than either of those.

7. Inside or outdoors? 


8. Five most influential books over your lifetime: 

The Bible

Same Kind of Different As Me (Ron Hall and Denver Moore)

Hinds Feet on High Places (Hannah Hurnard)

Battlefield of the Mind (Meyer)

Transgression (Randall Ingermanson)

9. Would you rather be in Middle Earth, Narnia, Hogwarts, or somewhere else? 

Middle Earth with the Earth-saving Hobbits or Narnia with Lion Jesus. 

10. List the top 5 things you spend the most time doing, in order.





More laundry

11. Have you ever felt like you had a “mind-meld” with someone? 


You all keep your minds to yourselves! 


12. Could you live as a hermit? 

Yes, but with my kids and husband there.

13. Do you feel like your outside appearance is a fair representation of the “real you”? 

I am what I appear to be.

14. Three songs that you connect with right now. 

Simon Khorolskiy's "Heaven is my Home" (an oldie he re-did)

Paul Wilbur's "Shalom Jerusalem"

The Shema

15. Pick one of your favorite quotes.

"In this galaxy, there is a mathematical probability of three million 

Earth-type planets. And in all of the universe, 

three million million galaxies like this. 

And in all of that 

and perhaps more, 

only one of each of us."

Dr. Leonard McCoy
