Up Early

This has been a busy week. Not only did I have to run out of town unexpectedly for a couple days, but my work piled up while I was out, and I have been scrambling to get back on top of it since returning to my desk. On top of that, I haven’t written in… Continue reading Up Early

An unscheduled departure…

My next entry was going to jump right into step 3, but here I will pause. Sometimes in life, as in our recoveries, things don't go quite as planned. I have been called out-of-town on a family emergency (all is turning out okay, thanks!) and so my scheduled posts have been knocked a bit sideways.… Continue reading An unscheduled departure…

Fighting for purpose

Earlier, we looked at prayer and God's purpose. And that prayer is meant to be a 2-way conversation between us and God. As we dig more in to what that all means, and spend some more time listening during prayer, sometimes we'll wonder what we're to be doing with our lives. I know I do.… Continue reading Fighting for purpose

The bright side

I gotta say it. Today the sun came out after what seemed like weeks of rain and I felt so encouraged. I physically felt pretty good, so on to get stuff done. I hope to write a number of entries in between all the running about today. In a meeting I attended, we were being… Continue reading The bright side

Precious Humility

Got in some errands in the lovely, dry weather today, and placed my flamingo back out in the front yard, to guard the premises. I only needed a sweater and enjoyed my time out and about. As the radio played in the car, I searched about through the channels and found some holiday music. The… Continue reading Precious Humility

Joy and a blankie….

Took birthday gifts to some special people in my life, and spent time in a new garden, discussing the plants with the new owner. It was a somewhat cloudy but pleasant day and I came away with some lovely clippings that are now gracing my dining room table. Yesterday evening was not an easy one.… Continue reading Joy and a blankie….

Friday’s Bridge…

I got up and felt much better.  The sun is shining and I am hoping to hit the gym. I do need to tend to my little plants outside, while the temperatures are still mild enough to keep them above ground. It is a mild autumn for certain. Not really complaining either. Spent time this… Continue reading Friday’s Bridge…

Waterfull Wednesday

It rained like there was no tomorrow today. I drove over a patch of roadway and the splash-back covered my windshield, causing me to have to fight the instinct of every cell in my body to slam hard on the brakes, knowing full well I would likely spin out of control and possibly into another… Continue reading Waterfull Wednesday

Sugarless Tuesday

Today was the perfect definition of a fall day. Blowing crisp leaves, partly sunny skies, temps in the upper 50's. It was a day to enjoy the outdoors so that's just what we did. Today was also a "no sugar" day. So not exactly a fun day, as I really want to enjoy a treat,… Continue reading Sugarless Tuesday

Sunday’s resolve

The sun is shining and someone hit a tree with their car near our house and took off, nearly killing the poor little fir. We hope it survives. Some days are just hard. You just come to a corner, and have to speak the truth, no matter how it sounds. And own the responsibility for… Continue reading Sunday’s resolve
