Would you rather...?

I like thought-provoking things: questions, conversations, Bible Verses, you name it!  If it makes me think, and even better, if it keeps me thinking, I love it!

A week or two ago, I attended a training event for leaders.
The ice breaker for the session included a fun game, one whose name you may recognize: "Would You Rather?"
Only these choices were a little more intense than some of the versions I've played before.

Some were things I've never thought about...

If you could have either of these superpowers, would you pick Invisibility or Reading Minds?

 {I chose invisibility}

Would you rather be really hairy or completely bald?

{I chose hairy, because there are more solutions for removing unwanted hair than adding back hair :-)}

Some were just hard to pick:

Would you rather ALWAYS have to say what YOU think or hear what other people are thinking but NOT saying? 
{Hmmm...still thinking on that one}

Some were easy:
Beach or Mountains? {Mountains for me!}

And then there was this one:
If you had to give up your sight or your hearing, which would you choose?

And I chose sight.

Why? Because without my hearing, I couldn't sing and I couldn't hear music.

And if it happened to me tomorrow, I would give up my sight in order to keep my hearing.  Does that make me weird? I don't know...

It's hard to imagine losing either of those senses.  I'm an artsy person.  I love pretty pictures, I like to draw, I love nature and sunsets and the colors of fall leaves.

But music speaks to me so deeply, that I can't imagine not having it and not being able to make it with my voice.

I spent a lot of time singing so far this weekend and I enjoyed it immensely.  If no one else ever wants to hear me sing, I choose to keep singing anyway.

If for no other reason, than to praise God.

And I can't give that up.
