It's a wacky kinda Wednesday

Wednesday, October 01, 2014



I got a call yesterday evening around 8:30pm. My sister Gerri was taking mom to the hospital for a fever of 101. Mom's is usually around 97 so that's a bit of a fever for her. So say a prayer for her if you would please?

I'm looking at my calendar this morning and thinking to myself..I'm having way too many appointments with doctors here lately.. Going to have to do something about that besides show up for them. And have both docs make a solid plan for getting things under control. (Lower my blood pressure and get some relief for my left knee that is now bone-on-bone as well)

I'm glad today is half ways through the week. I always look forward to those two days off. Saturday we are having a homecoming at church. It begins at 11 am and will be filled with a lot of rejoicing and seeing folks that haven't been there in awhile. Potluck and a singing group from KY coming in as well.



Quote for the day


Just for kicks:


Have a great day everyone ~ Donna

Making exercise fun...

Tuesday, September 30, 2014



Do you all know you can make your own exercise groupings? Mine look something like this..



Each grouping of course has exercise attached to it, but the names keep me motivated. I hope this will spark someone else as well.

I only slept 4 hours last night. I must have had something on my mind. I went to bed at 9 pm. Didn't call asleep until around midnight. Up around 3 am to go to the BR. Up again at 4 am and I couldn't fall back asleep to save my life..

I know I've discussed that before and here as-of-late it seems to be occurring more often. Maybe I'm just not requiring as much asleep as before but 4 hours makes me feel like I'm running on empty.


Daily inspiration:

What talents do you possess?

Sunday, September 28, 2014



Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best. ~ Henry Van Dyke

Henry sure had the right idea didn't he? How many talents do you possess that lie dormant? Why are you afraid to showcase them? It has nothing to do with patting yourself on the back. It has to do with putting your God given talents to use.

Can you write letters? Than go to a nursing home and volunteer your time writing letters for those that can't anymore to their families

Can you sing? Then sing at church or a nursing home (older folks love this)

Can you read? Then volunteer your time at school to the kindergarten and first grade classes. Teach them that reading is fun.

Can you see? Then take pictures and share them with local newspapers and magazines.

Can you feel? Then volunteer your time to developmentally or seeing impaired individuals. Teach them about textiles and what it means to be able to feel and see a world they may not be able to.

Can you walk? Go door to door for a local charity of your choice.



The talent can be BIG or small. It doesn't matter just use it. The biggest thing is getting started. Places like nursing homes, group homes and charities need individual help and volunteerism. They depend on it because most are non-profits and can't afford to pay anything, but we should be able to give our time. When we do everyone wins, the agency, the consumer and our own feeling of being helpful.




So what are you afraid of??? Get going!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is indeed the Greatest Blog that I have read by far ever. I love the fact that you have come up with the greatest way to suggest to others how to value themselves. Volunteering is great, it not only helps those that need it the most or the companies that need the extra help by having volunteers. It also can help the individual that is volunteering by raising their self esteem, getting them out of their house, raising their mood, and improving their health. Volunteering helps keep you from becoming house bound and possibly depressed that you no longer have a productive place in society. It makes us feel useful to our fellow man. If you would like to write a health tip on volunteering and then post it on "KEEP WALKING WITH JESUS", you are more than welcome too. You would post it under the forum "Health and Nutrition" health tips. I am currently looking for a new article to research and post. But I do like your blog and would like to give you the opportunity to post the information first.
Love Always Your sister in Christ

    As of yet I am still learning to care for myself but you have gotten me thinking about at least writing letters to some of the soldiers that are still in bad areas! That I could do! Hubby is a Veteran and would probably appreciate the effort as well!

    I love this blog. Giving your time to bring a smile or a helping hand is truly a double blessing. It is a blessing for those you touch with your kindness and a blessing for yourself, give more meaning to your life. You are so right there are thousands of ways to volunteer in your community. Find what you like to do and find a place to do it. Thank you for volunteering your time and have a blessed day.

How women feel about themselves vs how others do.

Saturday, September 27, 2014




I want to share something with all of you. It is how women perceive themselves vs how their family and friends see themselves. I don't know about any of you but I had to have my Kleenexes handy. You can view the video on the following link.

Husbands, kids whoever. Let me tell you from personal experience. Your momma or wife needs this. They need to know that they are enough! Tell them please for me.
