a road bump for DH...

Saturday, October 25, 2014

Thursday late afternoon, my DH had surgery on his right foot...to remove a years and years' long "fighting him" toe!...

Presently, we hope to have many more climbing adventures ahead...pain free!!

(oops, it's sideways...hmmmm...like us emoticon )

...there, that's better...

jumbly life

Friday, October 24, 2014

Today I began to ponder the jumbles,...

hodge podges,...

mish mashes,...

messy confusions...

in life...(Actually, the title for this photo is "balanced life"?)...

We need the conglomerations in order to do creative brainstorming...

However, as the projects pile up...

more and more jumbles occur...

and we become inundated...

walk, fast and pray

Thursday, October 23, 2014

At 4:30 AM I awoke to begin the day, then I remembered that I'd had maybe five hours of sleep and this is a busy day. I snoozed for another two hours and felt much better getting up to pouring rain.

After sending this blog, I'll don my "oilskins" (from my parents' boating days), ...

carefully put away since 1999 when my mother died. I've used them just once on a deep sea fishing trip.
It is so soggy outside that I need my Wellies again with my SPAT attached to my "ice springs" (the gizmos I slip on the boots to keep me stable in wintah)... emoticon...

We are fasting today as we pray for a dear friend undergoing major surgery for cancer removal. Also my DH is having the second toe of his right foot removed this PM at the orthopaedic center in our state capital... emoticon

Blessings for your day!... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Dearest Nellie, I meant to come here earlier and let you know I'm praying, I realize the surgery for your DH is over but want you to know I am praying for a complete and speedy recovery with no complications. I believe God is moving by His Spirit and is touching your DH with His Healing power, He is Jehovah Rapha the Lord who Heals. I am also praying for your friend's surgery believing for a Mighty Miracle of God's Healing touch that all cancer will be completely removed...

Please keep me up-dated on how both your DH and Friend are doing..

Take care and God's Blessings my dear friend... emoticon emoticon

  I am so sorry to hear about your friend and your husband's problems. But I am glad to hear you believe in that which goeth not forth but by prayer and fasting. God will reward your faith. Members of our church were in an African crusade. One woman was pointed out for a miracle, God noting in that word of discernment that she had fasted ONE meal for it. He is mindful of all our sacrifices.

reminders

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Another foggy, grey, drizzly day...and I decide to walk in our backyard...because our rural roads are narrow and our woodsy paths are full of soggy leaves atop granite ledge...both rather unsafe. Even though we have many Autumn leaves that the wind has strewn across the green grass, I'm reminded to stay green today!!...

As I amble up and down the lawn, I think about this fitness routine of getting steps...10,000 to be exact (though my goal is really 6,000)...but at least I'm remembering to exercise (oops have to get my strengthening ones in later, too!)...

(no, it's not our garden, unfortunately...)

Green always brings to mind SALAD...

and VEGGIES....Yummmmmm...

I get hungry and thirsty on these mini "hikes"...right...8 glasses of water, don't forget...

what about motivation nudges out on this stroll? I can picture in my mind's eye how it looked a few short days ago...

or I can write today's blog as I watch a chipmunk scurry under the cottage deck...

but I'm going to hum a hymn of praise... emoticon

and then pray for a very sick DDIL... and a good friend having serious surgery early tomorrow AM... and for a brother who has just gone to Africa for meetings concerning Ebola... and for hurting families and grieving neighbors...and those being tortured for their faith in Christ.

disappointed

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I have been enjoying my new SP activity tracker emoticon until today. For some reason my steps stopped being recorded after about 11:20PM and so my trying to get to 10,000 before midnight did not happen. Is 12:00 AM the cut off or 11:30 PM for the next day to begin? emoticon The tracker is still lighting up when tapped and the USB is on green as well. The time for each sync is given, but without a change in the number of steps, even though I've been walking... emoticon

    You could join the SPAT team and ask your question there.
