Yesterday was a magical day.  I got to talk to some wonderful people that I haven’t heard from in 3 years.  Then I swam 3 1/2  hours late in the evening and started a great novel.  When I got home I forgot my ‘job’ of posting.  I love stay vacations that include reasonable amounts of chocolate (I am doing good) and a great story.

I might have late posts more than once until the heat breaks in mid-Sept.  Just know it is a way of taking care of myself.  How about you?  Any special pampering going on for you??

The difference between a banjo and a lawn mower is that
you can tune the lawn mower.

For some people, tennis is their racquet, while
for others, the piano is more their forte.

Change True Hope

Weary not in well doing.

This is how others will know that you love God by the love you have one for another.

Watch and Pray that you enter not into temptation.

These words were written thousands of years ago.  They are truth and will stand forever.  They will not change.  Our greatest hope lies in knowing the truths from God and having them be our core values.

Kindness Counts

Relationship-the one job that many of us opt out of.  {Especially when it comes to having an ongoing accepting loving relationship with ourselves.  [Not to be confused with self-centeredness, selfishness, narcissism, or out of control ego]}

Divorce-I chose that over coping with a husband who believed leaving for a few days was a better option than discussing the problem and coming to a compromised solution.  Fortunately his penchant for leaving showed up very very early in the marriage.  I chose to get divorced and not remarry.   My youngest son has said that I have saved a man from a life of misery.  I agree with him as I do demand that my husband support me, honor me as I honor him, love God first me second, and be the head of the household.

Friendship-I do reach out to meet people but find that there are few that are interested in what interests me.  I enjoy people who like to learn new things, discuss religion and politics (please be informed beyond the talking heads), and have a good laugh.

I have a deep admiration for  those who have made vows to ‘let no man put asunder’ and stay committed to their marriage relationship.  It is not easy no matter which path you choose.  I have heard that some of the modern vows say, “so long as love doth last”.  As the song says, “What does love have to do with it?”  As I see it we have a choice to stay true to our vows in the marriage or stay true to our vows by remaining single if we divorce.

I of course agree with Dr. Laura that the 3 A’s addiction, adultrey, abuse, negate the marriage contract.

No matter the type of relationship kindness counts.  It heals deep hurts, smooths ruffled feelings, and protect us from hurting ourselves or others.

Month 5

Week1 Very good 1st day. Of course not feeling 100% helped. Day 2 My biggest challenge is not eating after 7pm. No sugar 2 days in a row. I’ll have a LM (liquid meal) for a late night snack. Day 3 success again  I am liking this  Day 4 3 days sugar free  Sugar today as I had a very busy evening.  Low gluten 2 days in a row  I am liking this.   Day 5 No sugar low gluten swim  swim  swim Day6-7 I am doing ok not great

Week 2 Day 1-3 Getting in the exercise.  Eating light meals but having sugar everyday.  I am eating after swimming.  Not good tonight.  Day 4-6 I am going to be careful but I have company so am not sure what the schedule will be.  I’ll do input so we will see what I commit to.  Day 7 I do well.  Swimming for 2-3 hours which helps a lot.  The extreme temps help keep the appetite down except for wanting ice cream.

Week 3 &4 No AC in the house so eating isn’t a real problem today.  Swim like a fist tonight. Day 2-7 AC is fixed.  Should be an easy day to stay on track. Out of town.  did OK.  Busy with walking but now swimming.

Embrace the Challenge

According to Napoleon Hill: Think and Grow Rich author, Every adversity, every failure and every heartache carries with it the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.

Hey You–Like the Smile

Las night I visited with someone who is in their 80’s.  This person was puny and had to stay in bed all day as they hurt all over.  I anointed them several times with different oils to help comfort and soothe them.

As I sat by the bed this precious soul whispered that there  were people in the room.  I asked if it was real or spirit.  They responded that it was spirits.  I then asked if they were friendly.  Instead of answering they started describing these very tall beings that were surrounded by blue light.  “Oh” I said, “they are angels”.  The response I got was a disgusted, “I know that.”

This person loves the angels and was at complete peace that they were standing by her bed.  I wish I could have felt their presence but it wasn’t my privilege.   I was grateful they were doing what I couldn’t.  Giving a deeper comfort.
