Thanks For Prayers and Weight Gain And Philosophy Class

Friday, June 06, 2014

I want to thank all of you on Sparks who prayed for my daughter before. It turned out to be just a muscle sprain and nothing more but it was a wake up call for her to lose weight. I have some serious losing to do yet. I cannot fit into my clothes from last year and my daughter says she is disappointed in me too. Lately I have been feeling depressed and have no ambition to really do anything. Now I am in Philosophy and it is much harder than my other classes were. I have to write a paper about Aquinas and Augustine this week. I have not started on it yet. Feeling blue because we cannot go to hear a writer from our group speak at an Appleton meeting on Monday; no room in the truck. Feeling like we are always the fifth wheel and that the group has become cliquey since the last year we were in it before. Also had to write a letter to one of our friends explaining why we do not want to get together on Sunday anymore. They are Seventh Day Adventists so they go by the Jewish Sabbath. But the last time we went with them we had to leave our dog in the her carrier most of the day because she did not poop in the morning right away. And we hardly got home from church and took her out to pee when we had to put her back in again. It breaks our heart to hear her whining and scratching at her carrier. And when we got home later that night she had pooped way in the back of it. My daughter had to take it all apart to clean it and then put it all back together again. So i told our friend all this because she is the one who wanted it on a Sunday. I hope she understands and we can come to an understanding.

Prayer Needed For My Daughter Jennifer

Friday, May 16, 2014

Everyone on Sparks who knows Jennifer please keep her in prayer as she went to the emergency room today. She might have a possible blood clot in her left leg. She told me it was hurting her really bad before she called the doctor. I am so scared right now. This waiting is so hard not knowing. She has the cell phone and she will call when she can.

Back Story and Authentiity

Friday, May 09, 2014

Well the misunderstanding is cleared up now i think; the pastor talked to the lady and then she called me the net day. Jennifer finally got her room more organized and less messy. I am depressed cause i do not think i will be able to go to camp again cause of my hand and the pain in my back and leg. Something i look forward to is gone. I am learning how to be real and authentic in out bible study and be more open with others. In church Wednesday night i explained how i was a pacifist and would walk away from someone instead of confronting them. That is the reason we left for a while until the person would cool off and see reason. I would never totally leave the church. I let the women inside the real me Wednesday night when i explained how scared i was about my future and being homeless. I still need to work on self control and trusting God more.

Procrastination My Biggest Enemy

Thursday, May 01, 2014

In the battle with my weight and with my whole life procrastination is my number 1 problem. I keep putting things off until it is too late or i have to do it. It is the number 1 reason i sometimes send in bill payments late cause i put if off and then forget where i stored the bills until the due date is past. I keep putting off going back to losing weight until tomorrow and here it is and i did not do anything yet. It is the reason i am not moving forward in my writing cause i do not spend the time practicing it and reading and looking up publishers. So scared of rejection that i am standing still. If i want to make a difference i have to take risks and get out of my comfort zone. God has given me a gift and i must use it. So starting now i am determined to stop procrastinating and get moving!

    My favorite internal rebuttal to procrastination is "If not now, when?" If I don't want to do it now, I force myself to choose a set time that I will do it. It forces me to face the truth that I don't want to do it at all. That is unacceptable. No excuses. It will take exactly the same amount of time now or later.

Depressed Over Church Issue And My Friend

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

I am depressed today because the issue with the lady from church still is not resolved, We sent her a card yesterday telling her that we were thinking and praying for her and we have not heard from her yet. We think another party from church who is very close to her influenced her, It is a sad state of affairs not to be able to go to church, I hope after the anniversary of his death that the lady starts to rethink everything that she said and realize it was just a misunderstanding between her and my daughter. My friend was supposed to go on the van today and pay for my lunch at a restaurant but she cancelled out at the last minute because she has a cold now and because we did not know whether that other woman who we call a witch would be on. The van driver said 5 would be on and i could figure out 4 but not the 5th one. She did not want to deal with her in her condition. But the woman was not on anyway but it was rainy and cold all day today. Not a good time for my friend to be out and about.

    Wish I could send you some Florida warmth. It's just about too hot to walk at lunchtime now, and I'm really going to miss that. emoticon for peace-filledl hearts...

    Praying things will be resolved with what is going with you and the lady from your church.
From one of your previous posts, weather in Wisconsin sounds like weather in Colorado. It can be nice one day and the next it is cold and windy. Although we haven't had much snow this past winter.
