One treat for me on tv is to watch Joyce Meyers before leaving for work in the morning.. This morning was one that I was home late enough to see her.
I am a born and bred devout Catholic, BUT I was introduced to her tapes while in another program years ago.. I receive her books for gifts and I love her and her devotion to my Lord. Some people in my parish tell me not to get too deep in her lectures or Bible study. I know how things are today, how life presents challenges, the devil in person. I know that my faith is helping me continue to grow in spite of being this erring human that I am.

I have been through a lot of life's challenges that she has and can relate to how she works to change herself as best she can, despite being a world renowned evangelist. I have not wavered in my faith because I listen to her and read her ways of relating to the Scripture to get through my daily life.
I know my faith has strengthened because I am able to glean what she has and what she has been given by God, and add to that, my spiritual upbringing and let it work through me to be able to work on my faults.
One of these faults was pointed out to me today at work,, I need to be open to humility if I am to grow inside as HE intended for me .. growth is ongoing,,

Anybody with perfection as a goal is a fool.. (my quote)

    Perfect? I gave up on even being good when I read in some book or other that there's none good save one, and I realized that I ain't He. :)

I guess God's got some followers around in various places. Sometimes it seems hard to spend more time and energy helping each other along the way. emoticon

    By definition, the 'perfect' human being is imperfect. Only God is perfect.

    I have always enjoyed her, too, when I just happen to catch her show. Anyway, my own faith is quite different, as well, but I don't hear her saying anything that isn't true. emoticon

  If our goal is perfection, we are destined for disappointment...
I am Catholic, and I also find Joyce Meyer's lectures to be most helpful. She has the talent of making her lessons easy to understand--- and easy to apply to my life. I have found her books offer wisdom for daily living too.
When someone preaches about Godly virtue, and preaches about overcoming sinfulness, the message can be beneficial -- no matter the speaker's religious denomination. And the humor Joyce Meyer brings to her ministry often makes me smile. . .
Thanks for this blog... and God bless you!

Way more snow!

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Another blizzard,, wind chill 17 degrees. Spring is almost here,,I remember years that we could not get to church on Easter Sunday for the huge drifts on the roads,, two foot snowfalls..

Called trust attorney office to set up a synchronized phone call between him and CPA doing trust taxes.in an hour or so,, trying to get laundry, dishes, paperwork ..got to d//c dad's phone in their home and get to credit union, change my internet, phone and tv to a bundle.. not enough hours in the day,,

I tried out my new little steam mop I bought last weekend. Tried it in the full bathroom.. it really heats up quickly and gets the floor clean, BUT I will still have to soak the white grout with bleach first.. cannot wait to get two minutes to rub together so I can use it on my kitchen floor and the hardwoods in the bedrooms!! A new toy for Linda!!! See how pathetic my life is?? Jumping for joy about a cleaning mop.... I feel so glamorous.

Not unusual for Michigan, but not requested either!! LOL! Still adjusting to time change, just cannot get up and moving ,even when my alarm clock blares at me in the dark!!
Yearning for walks in the park and woods when the weather is bearable and land is not flooded.

We DID have a great day yesterday.. DD and i went grocery shopping, then on to Aldi to get a cool mist steamer for her skin, found a new gadget that will hopefully, help me be able to clean my hardwood and tile floors better. Since I can no longer kneel, this is a triangular head steamer mop that scrubs and steams. VERY reasonable price.. two people I talked to in the store, bought one last year and they love it. Will be trying it out in both bathrooms today after work.

DD was approved 100% for U of M..!!!!! thank you , all of you, for your deep prayers and love for her. Today she will call and set up an appointment to get her biopsy,, I will have to reschedule my work,,

Does anybody else out there feel kind of groggy from this time change,, two weeks from now I will be adjusted..

    Ok, more evidence that I'm getting soft in the head. Now I'm all teared up. So glad it's working out for her.

I'll tell you what I told someone else. I stayed up all night long thinking about the sun, and daylight savings time. Then suddenly, it dawned on me. emoticon

Daylight Savings is here!!

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Until November, we now are back in normal time.
I always have a hard time with this part,, but did get some sleep.. so nice to not wake up to an alarm for a day!! Lovely...

Got my coupons organized, DD made shopping list, getting some more fresh fruits if they have decent ones from the U.S. Usually the sale produce is from Chile or Mexico.. All sprayed with DDT for that lovely cancer effect we all cherish.(sarcasm) Labels are so important.. I never buy anything until i validate the origin.
It will take me two weeks to adjust to this archaic time change...

    Wish we stayed on 'this time' year around rather than switching 2 x a year.
