I just spent a WONDERFUL weekend in Roanoke, VA at the annual conference. Friday evening we were splitting our sides laughing at Chondra Pierce, then thoroughly enjoyed a mini-concert by Mercy Me. Saturday, we had several inspirational speakers and another mini-concert: this time by New Song.
Although the conference was over Saturday evening, my friend and I stayed another night and attended a church where we were blessed by the Lord. It was great!
I had taken my small dumbbells and used them Fri and Sat nights, but gave myself the night off last night after we got home. I was bushed! So, I missed exercise one day.....I'd been consistent in exercising at least 10 minutes each day for the past few weeks.....one of my goals. I hardly regret no exercising yesterday at all......it was JUST ONE DAY!
This morning I treadmilled for almost an hour.....it's raining, today into Wednesday, so there won't be any outside stuff for me. Then this afternoon I donated a pint of blood.
I know many people aren't eligible, but I am, and having been a recipient many years ago, I know how important it is to do what I can.
I hear my housework calling, so will have to wait until later to spend more time on SP.

I stayed ahead of whatever pain there was, and am not even on aspirin or Tylenol today. Thank you, God. I am MOST grateful. My mouth is still somewhat sore - not painful - but it will get better each day. Enuf dental talk!
Friday noon, a sister in Christ and I are driving down to Roanoke, VA for an eWomen's conference. I'm getting really excited. We went a year ago (10 of us from our church last yr), and had a fun, spiritually-uplifting time. I expect the same this year. In addition to New Song, we'll get a concert by Mercy Me. Chondra Pearce will entertain us, too. And there's a goodly list of speakers I'm eager to hear. Please pray for safety for everyone traveling to/from the conference (there were about 10,000 of us last year), and for the Lord to bless all our hearts. I know He has words for each of us; I pray for ears to hear them.
It was overcast all day, and I'm not sure the temp got all the way to 70 degrees, but it was a nice day inspite of the weather. We're expecting rain any time now, and torrents of it tomorrow - maybe 4 inches. Obviously they've issued a flood watch. Normally that doesn't negatively affect us personally, but you KNOW there are people out there who live in perilous places.
Good night y'all.

God is SO good! I don't have a specific thing to tell, but just that I'm rejoicing that God IS SO GOOD!
Just got home from yet another dental appt. (I think I'm paying for his 5 new computers all by myself). He finished the prep work for a new crown, but had to use a laser because there was 'some tissue' in the way. (Read: gum). I took some medication after leaving his office, so am hoping to stay ahead of the pain. He also slightly burned the inside of my cheek w/the laser!! I'm such a mouth-pain sissy. The reason it took over 1-1/2 hrs to do, and why my soft tissue (cheek) hurts so much is because it was a waaaaay back molar and hard to get to. sigh. ok, complaining aside. I'm grateful that he's able to take care of me, and God has provided the $$ to pay for it.
It was still rain-y this morning, but the sun is out (for a day or so) and I'm concentrating on that instead of rain.
Isaiah 46:4 "Even to your old age and gray hairs, I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you." NIV

Today is rainy, and only in the mid-60's - a teeny bit cooler than 'normal' for us. But I'm celebrating the fact that we aren't 92 degrees, as we were a few days ago!
I also am thanking God (profusely) for the gentle, steady much-needed rain; much better than last week's violent storms.
A good friend sent me the following quotes some time back, but I don't know to whom I should attribute them.
"Have patience with all things but first with yourself. Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being."
"You're a perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist. And no amount of triumphs or tribulations can ever change that."
Have a wonderful day, y'all.

"They" tell us it's fall (or autumn), but someone forgot to tell 'Mother Nature' - it was 90 degrees yesterday and today is supposed to be the same! Our normal average temp this time of year is the mid-70's. We had the AC off for many days, but turned it back on becuz 90 degrees is 90 degrees, and when you factor in the (high) humidty, it feels worse.
We had AWFUL, TERRIBLE thunderstorms yesterday afternoon and evening - giving us much needed rain, but all at once, and the wind damage was bad around about, although not at our house. Praise the Lord! He moved the storms away from us before we went to bed last night.
Have a great evening, y'all
