Feeling convicted by the sermon this week on happiness. Some of the scriptures that went along with the message were. Philippians 4:6-7, 2 Peter 1-3, Matthew 11:28-30, Psalms 4:8,
1Timothy 4:8. To name a few. More to come :)
Praying for the person on my left and the one on my right has been a blessing. Meaning pick someone you don't normally pray for someone not on your prayer list. You know other that the list where folks having serious problems are. Pray for them too. It's a way to lift folks up and keep them off the serious problem list! Just pick someone standing to your left or right as you are in the grocery store, at work, walking, standing in line, parked in traffic. Pick someone you know in your daily walk or a perfect stranger and start praying for them. The blessing is yours don't miss it!
I got my steps in yesterday indoors on the elliptical and treadmill due to the rain. It was a good day :). Looking forward to another one today!

Just taking time to give thanks. We had a wonderful prayer circle last night and we were mixed up standing in this circle and challenged to pray for the new person standing to our left and right. We have those on our prayer list we standardly pray for but just because other members or our church don't have a traumatic illness or need, we each still need prayer. So today I have scrolled down and prayed for those in my comments. Just taking time to lift you up and pray God gives you the desires of your heart and blesses you abundantly!
Today is a rest day (other than a few notes I have to pound out and laundry), no run planned today. Oh ya, and except for those no bake cookies I made this morning that are cooling or wax paper for later. Chocolate, peanut butter and oatmeal cookies that are not low calorie..... Have a blessed day everyone!

Ok, I'm not done but have had a self imposed Time out all day. I went to work and nailed some progress notes. Right now I have three counties done. I have two more people single cases in two more counties to catch up still. I also have a letter that needs to be completed before Monday 8 am. I however have really accomplished a great deal today. Major amount of work done and all the clients I did notes for up to today. Thank You Jesus.
I got up this morning and did my 5 k practice at 7:30 am by 8:30 I was at work changing clothes while the computer booted up. I cleaned up in the bathroom changed out of my work out clothes went to work. I took only a 20 minute break to eat a fish taco, yum! I didn't get done till 4 pm. Ok I am not done but see the light at the end of the tunnel.
My sweet husband made sausage cream cheese and Parmesan cheese stuffed jalapeņo peppers for us tonight. He stuffed some mini sweet ones for me, I just need a salad or some of my left over vegetable with mine :)

Dang what a day yesterday! It started with a child I had seen throwing a tantrum in the parking lot....I then got behind all day. I never caught up with all the phone calls because of dealing with unhappy people. No not depressed but not satisfied I want my way kind of people....Bringing to mind 1Kings3:25 "And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one and half to the other." except no one is stepping up to say I want what is best for the child not for me. I am sorry if you have had to deal with divorce and child custody. Really I am, but some adults are so selfish wanting there share of a child like property, not what might be best for the child. It is sometimes just so stressful!
My cherry on top yesterday was 5k practice...thanks be to Jesus. I hit the pavement and my 1 mile splits were great but my time finishing was the same. Ah, I think the gps was a bit off so I will take the time and divide it. I still did good on the run for me and pounding the streets reduced my stress.
OK, here is the humbling part of the run. We have a mom pushing 10-12 month old in running stroller who's 5 year old runs with her! Yes 5 year old. Mom is really great with this child who runs. She counts down rest breaks, carry's his water, someday's she has to stop runs for his tantrum, she encourages him so appropriately, and in general he just seems to love running with his momma. Well at mile one I KEPT UP WITH THEM, WHOO HOO! At mile two they were in front of me but not too far. I might could catch them. After mile two I realized they were no longer in site. Yes, I saw them at the end resting and drinking Gatorade and hanging out with everyone, so they didn't turn and go home....
The good news is I did good, beat a lot of others I had been on pace with and felt great about my run. It just reminds me I still have a ways to go to beat that 5 year old! When I look at where I came from I am doing great! It used to take 1 hr 15 min to walk three miles before which I couldn't even go three miles starting with just one. Now I am down to 45 minutes to go three miles WHOO HOO!
I still have work to do not having accomplished what was needed the last two days. This morning Nails and then massage. This afternoon and weekend, NOTES. I will just be on house arrest afterward until it's done. This might mean not doing a church yard sale for tomorrow to raise money for a cause I would like to support. I just can't do everything!!! I also know God does not intend for my brain to hurt like it did yesterday. No it was not a headache. My brain was simply over working and hurt. After the run it was better.
Have a Great Day!
For those asking yesterday! A virtual vacation to me is looking for a location approximately 1600 miles away and researching and learning all the fun things I can do there. Then the planning and figuring if I can for real make this trip. I have decided if I cant make a long trip, then I will divide my miles for multiple mini trips as a reward. Last year is when I began and as a reward I said when I have walked enough miles to travel to the beach I would go, and I did. Last year was my first year. Fit bit and spark people say I have now walked 1600 lifetime miles now, so I get to go further this year! I look at my life time miles once a year as a way to motivate and reward. No time this week to do this. I will update you later after this paperwork is done on what locations I find :)
