A poem written on Mother Teresas wall, (DO IT ANYWAY!)

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

People are often unreasonable, irrational and self centered. For give them anyway.

If you are Kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind any way.

If you are successful, you will win some un faithful friends and some Genuine enemies Succeed any way.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.Create any way.

If you find serenity and Happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy any way

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do Good any way

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give the best any way.

In the final analysis, it is between you and GOD . It was never between you
between you and them anyway.


I just read this poem and thought it was so-o true! Mother Teresa is one of my heros
and i Love her words and writings!! I just thought id share! Blessings to you all!Bonnie emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for sharing this! It's easy to be discouraged when others may not share our vision & to grow weary in doing well!

Ive have been too hard on my self!!

Monday, December 05, 2011

Ive been really dis gusted that i havent lost any more ,must be that dredded Plateau cause ive been excercising daily and eating healthy so whats wrong? I didnt measure myself when i started ,but i should have because i tryed on some cloths to day that i havent been able to get on and they fit, well too. I could even button themWow!! That amazed me! I think i have lost inchs, but not more pounds ! Can that be? I decided may be i should give my self a little pat on the back! When i started i had so-o much joint pain and was so stiff i couldnt hardly move and Look at me now, i still have pain but its manageable and i can touch the floor with out much effort ! I could only bend half way down, so today is the day i quit beating my self up and just keep doing what im doing and one day that big plateau is gona come crashing down and then watch out ,Baby emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon THE Deerlady!

    You are doing great! You really do need to give yourself credit since you are fitting into clothes you weren't fitting into before!

    Yes! I found that when I stopped fretting about lack of weight loss and just concentrated on getting/staying healthy, eventually the pounds came off. Just don't ever give up, and try to always be proud of every little step you make in the right direction!

    Yeah Deerlady! You made great strides in understanding yourself and helping others too. We all can be too hard on ourselves. Instead we need to celebrate the non scale victories!!!

THE GOD BOX!

Friday, December 02, 2011

Some thing that has helped me in the past is the GOD BOX! When i volunteered at the Nursing Home, I visited with the Residents and this one special old friend, she was 80 years old and her name was Elaine! One Christmas she gave me a gift and she said it was a GOD box and that when i had something bothering me, like a worry or even prayers for some one you write it down and put it in the box! She said to give your worries to God and he would handle them and ya know i started using the box and it did seem to work and i still use it once in a while and whenever i put a worry or a prayer on a piece of paper i think of that old wonderful friend who ended up losing her memory because of dementia! Im glad she gave me the box and she also gave me her love when she could and i still went to see her until she passed over!We Helped each other, it was not just ME helping her! Ill never forget her, Blessings to you and get making your own God Box and and get creative and make it your own style .BONNIE emoticon emoticonBlessings to you all!!

    What a wonderful idea! I have had a GOD JAR over the years... A friend made one for me... included the note paper and pen. It was also a very special gift.
I have thought of making a GRATEFULNESS JAR, and starting it at Thankgsiging, then reading what is in it the next year at Thanksgiving.
My hardest thing is to give whatever to God, and leave it there! LOL!
Have a wonder-filled week!

Ive decided to Simplify this year!

Monday, November 28, 2011

I was trying to get my Christmas stuff out and i just didnt realize this one closet in the extra room was almost like a hoarding closet! Good grief! I have three bags of stuff to throw out and three bags to give away to charity! Theres also things that will take a while such as private things of my brothers he madesure i knew he wanted me to burn the stuff such as journals he wrote for twenty years , not to interesting as its not personal but every day things he wroteon bills ,and statistics, that was him!!I did find one little book he wrote on his experience he had looking for the Perfect piece of property to buy in his Dream area in N. Michigan>That one i will keep! It was very touching and only made me miss him more cause he was the greatest brother in the world and taught me many life lessons So one day ill make a giant fire and ill do what he requested! But WOW! Does it feel good to simplify and i know his closet is wild cause he collectedfor years that will be within the year! I keep the house it self perfect every thing has its place , but oh.. those closets!! Say a Prayer for me !! BONNIE emoticon emoticon

    The mundane journals with bills paid and such are historically valuable. In just 10 years, we might look through something like that and compare what is going on. Hopefully, good things will be going on.

It was all about me and GOD and being out in Nature!

Friday, November 25, 2011

I decided to go some where else for my walk other than here on my property ,so i went a couple miles down the road to this place that used to be called Seven Bridges but has since sold to the Nature Conservancy and im glad its safe to stay the way it is! Its gorgous thereTheres rivers all over the place, drinkable water gushing every where! Theres No tourists that was nice!! Just me and GOD in nature! If Heaven is like that place i would not be disappointed! I went for a great walk back to the high woods and when i came back i sat on the bench and just spent some God time and brought my self back in balance after yesterday.The temp was56 degrees too which is highly un usual in N. Michigan! Its usually snowing and blowing so it was just emoticonI came back feeling Recharged and ready to get with my routine full blast! I feel like im full of GOD Energy! emoticonA really great feeling for sure, BONNIE emoticon
