This time I mean to have it right. The topic is Worship, I think. If it's not, I'll tag on another word after this one later on tonight if it's posted- or maybe I won't. I cannot find the Linkey anywhere on the page linked above, and if I can't, I will probably never do this again.
"Ever in the Presence" is a life that I've been trying to build for myself. The goal is to stand and work, sleep and play, and always be in the Presence of the Supreme Being. It has given me a calmness that I knew when I was very small, when only my grandparents and mother were my world. It reminds me to treasure the gentleness of my DH and my daughters, and to share in the the fun that they create just by being themselves.
Being a Quaker has changed me forever but I've actually been baptized three times! Once as a baby, and then when I was about 7 in a neighborhood church. But, when I told my father, he was enraged! Such an terrible man.
Then, when I was 26 and my sister was 18, we were baptized by members of another church. We were baptized in the Bay, late at night, and the water was phosphorescent! It was like a dream! But when we first attended Sunday Service there, we were told that women could not speak in their church; something from the Bible, they said. So, then I went right back to being a Quaker, by Conviction. I will stay there.
.. that's my 5 Minute Friday on Worship.
Next, some fun: This is fun to do, it's for readers of all kinds.

I'm still figuring out where I stand, but seem to be somewhat a Free Range, Compulsive and Prestige reader. Well, actually I read mostly non fiction, to "find things out", and then Mysteries also to find out "who done it", and follow some favorite authors who are not mystery writers with the avidity of a blood hound.
So, go have some fun.
