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

In no particular order -
...for the beautiful days we've been having.
...for the rain we're getting - we really needed it
...for my husband, who is so thoughtful
...for my Mother, who led me to salvation in Christ
...for my ability to knit and crochet - and that I've found receipients for those items I make
...for providing the funds we need to pay for all the dental work I'm having done
...for my older sister who oversees Mom's care
...for God Himself - creator, counselor, sustainer, friend who always picks me up, victor over sin and death
...for the FACT that I'm going to Heaven one day

I bought The Spark months and months ago, but it only collected dust until recently I started reading it while treadmilling.
I'd lost weight while on SP, but 'plateau-ed' then regained some of it. I'm unhappy w/myself for doing that. Then, in finally starting to read the book, I realized I'd tried to do too many things at once and sorta burned out.
Now, I'm working on just one (or two) things at at time until I've added (or subtracted) everything I want to. First, 10 min of some kind of exercise every day. I'm continuing to drink water - I did that even before I joined SP. And I'm trying to add more veggies/fruit each week by eating at least 2 per day, EVERY day. Meeting those 2 goals should help how I feel physically, and especially mentally as I attain the goals, I expect to get the "I DID IT" feeling that feels so good.
We took delivery of our new stove yesterday, and my DH is the only one who has used it so far: he cooks during the week, and I cook on weekends. I'm excited, as it has many more features than I've ever used before. Yes, it was a big splurge, but we're worth it. LOL
Have a wonderful weekend, y'all. A safe, happy, 'Sparking' weekend.
