Random thoughts for Sunday, 7/25/2010

Sunday, July 25, 2010


Today's gospel reading has made me stop and think. The gospel for today is Luke 11: 1 - 13. It's a wonderful reading about how we should pray. The verses that have just fallen in love with are the following:

Luke 11:11-13 "What father among you , if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifs to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"

These verses are such a comfort to me, because they tell me that no matter what I will never lack for anything; if only I will trust. My view of the world is just a microcosm of God's kingdom. My view cannot begin to fathom the depth of God's gift to me of love and kindness. May I always remember that.

Met a dear friend for supper tonight. We ate at Hilltop, in Stevens Point, on the deck outside. It was so wonderful. We are trying to meet once a month for supper so we have more time to relax and catch up with what is going on in our lives. We were meeting for lunch during the work day but, with only an hour it was never enough time. This meeting for supper is working out great.

This new lifestyle that I'm adopting is really working. Case in point, at tonight's meal, I had the waitress bring a to-go-box right away and before I had taken a bite of my meal, I boxed up half of it right away. Presto! I was able to have what would have been a potentially calorie laden meal and cut the calories in half. I was pretty proud of myself!

I then came home and did a 2 mile walk/jog with my hubby.

Now it's time to spend some quality time with my kitties! Here's a picture of one of them. Her name is Slivers but, she has in the past few months acquired the affectionate nickname of "Stinky". She's called Stinky because I like to say that she is "So spoiled rotten, that she stinks". She is my baby; where ever I am, she's not more than two steps behind me. I rescued her from the wild; it actually took me over two months to get her tame enough that I could pet her. Enjoy!



And don't worry, no kitties were hurt in taking this picture. She's actually quite patient with me. Some day I'll post her picture with her Santa hat on.

  


Happy Saturday!

Saturday, June 26, 2010

Yesterday was a very emotional day for me. It was the anniversary date of the passing of two friends of mine. My dearest, closest friend, Nancy passed away 14 years ago. I don't think a day or week goes by that I don't think of Nancy and what she would be like. She had been my friend since high school and we were as close as if she was my sister. The other lady who passed away is my friend Karen. She was a co-worker and a fighter until the end. She's been gone a year now. So yesterday, I made a pledge that I would honor these two by always living my life to the fullest and best of my ability. Life is too short to waste worrying about what might have been and what might be. Today is happening while we speak. Take a moment to really enjoy it.

On a happier note, I am going with another lady friend to a stamping convention. I love anything related to papercrafting and card making. We're then going to a scrapbooking store and than out to lunch. It should be a wonderful morning. When I get back, if the rain hasn't started, I'm going to go for my run/walk of 4 miles.

Have a wonderful Saturday.

Some random thoughts for Monday

Monday, June 21, 2010

Sometime or somewhere along the way, my life has some how slipped away from me. My goal for the remainder of 2010 is getting back on top of it. I need to be an active participant and not sitting on the sideline. My first order of business, is setting some priorities and goals. What do I want out of life? What are my values? What makes me truly happy? There are some days where I feel like I'm just treading water with no land in sight and I don't want to go through life like that. There is a blog that I've discovered that deals with capturing everyday life. www.aliedwards.com/ Its a blog about capturing life in photos. Life is not only birthdays, holidays and seasons but, it is soo much more. Life occurs everyday, its the kitty looking out the window, it's the storm clouds gathering in the western sky, its the green grass heavy with a recent rainfall, it's visiting with a friend that is dying of cancer. Life is happening as we breath and who needs a special occasion to record it?

    I find I'm in the same boat as you. I've been so busy "doing" stuff that I haven't paid any attention to the minutes that have flown by and turned into years. I'll check out the website. Thanks for the information.

    It's easy to get distracted but keep at it. Little slow things add up as well. I lose very slowly. But I keep trying.

What a restless evening I had. Instead of forcing myself to sleep, I'm listening to my body and decided to get up and start the day. The only ones up besides me are my kitties and they are a bit confused as to why I'm typing at 4:00 in the morning.

The last week for me has been very trying. Both emotionally and physically. I can't believe what a constant struggle to stay positive about this new lifestyle of eating healthy. I have to keep reminding myself that my eating habits did not develop overnight and I can't expect to be perfect in only 3 weeks. I know that I really need to work on not being so hard on myself. I don't require this much perfection from my friends, I certainly shouldn't expect it from me.

Thanks for letting me ramble on. I think its going to be one of those days and I'm not going to try and fight it....
