Worship the Lord

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Worked in the yard trimming bushes, raking and hauling clippings to the back. Was a good workout but worn out and sore. Took a break and went to local garden shop and bought some beautiful Wave petunias and flowers for the steps. Gorgeous! Lovin the flowers!

Ended the day with a nice ride in the "Baby". What a way to end the day! It was gorgeous weather out.

Took a bath and that seemed to help the aches and pains some....but didn't sleep well. Have been hot at night so put a fan on me and the breeze kept waking me up...not a good choice I guess. Have to come up with something else I guess.

Feeling OK this AM.

On Praise Team today and practise didn't go well Thursday night so we're meeting earlier to see if we can work out the bugs. Picking Mom up early as she'll stay with me through both services.

Planning to go bike riding with co-worker this afternoon! Looking forward to getting on the bike paths.

    We worship You, Lord, and thank You for another day of letting our light shine. Bless Kathleen as she enters this Sunday full of faith, good works, love for You, and others.

Rise and shine, beautiful lady, as others need to see the strength in you only God can give.

P.S. Hope those muscles ease and the rest comes after all you did yesterday.

Fabulous Friday

Friday, May 18, 2012

We have once again made it to Friday! Had a long day yesterday. Got my lunchtime walk in. Was really struggling at work with my attitude. Had to get some things done I don't like to do. Took a noon time walk and prayed to God. Went back to work and tackled it and it wasn't so bad and it got completed. While taking my noontime walk saw the head of a deer in the tall weeds but couldn't tell if it was a baby or a momma. I try to focus on nature and get my focus on all the beauty and hear the frogs croaking in the pond...getting my focus on God and nature and all His beautiful creation instead of the little problems from work.

Went home with co-worker while she practised songs for her music lesson. Went with her to lesson and then stayed for Praise Team practise. The set didn't go well but finally got home at 9:30. Somehow the set always pulls together Sunday morning but practise is sometimes pretty rough.

Been gone so much recently. Staying home tomorrow and planning to get some much needed yard work done. Our bushes need trimming, yard edged and our back back yard cut. If it is wet we can't get back there. Plus hope to get out and find some flowers for the flower beds. Need to start putting mulch down.

Off to make it a great day!

Pondering Thoughts!

Thursday, May 17, 2012

I have been so blessed this birthday! A dear 89 year young friend from church treated me to lunch yesterday and crocheted towel in celebration of my birthday. Many have reached out to me this year. Been a pleasant surprise that has truly touched me.

Have gotten off track on loosing weight. Really blew it on the Spring Challenge. We had company for a week and seems like I couldn't get refocused after that....

Have been struggling with work and so tired.

Got Mom's flowers planted last night. May need to pick up a few more later on. Hope to get some to plant at my house too!

Got results of X-ray of Mom's foot that it isn't broken just swelling tissue...sprain. She needs to ice it and put in splint...which she refuses to do...she was disappointed they didn't find anything. I am relieved that it hasn't been broken and she's been walking on it and we won't take her to get it checked.

Have Praise Team Practise tonight and go with co-worker to voice lessons and going with her to her house after work to hang out for awhile until time for her voice lessons.

Off to make it a great day!

    I love to hear when a birthday celebration keeps on going on like the Energizer Bunny!

Poor, Mom. No excuses left and that goes for you too, young lady, in the weight loss arena. We just have to do it and set ourselves mini-goals which we can reach. I know, I know, I am good at preaching it, but have to live it too!

Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Had a wonderful evening with son and daughter in law. They are busy busy people too! Had a lovely dinner at Brio's for 2 1/2 hours...not all eating...lots of talking and catching up.

Lunch today with a group of dear friends from church today. So good to catch up with what is going on. Work sometimes takes you away from all your friends and it's always nice to see how everyone is. Sunday mornngs just don't give you enough time.

Going to plant mom's flowers after work and get that off my list. She worries about them until they get planted.

Hubby took Mom for another foot x-ray yesterday. It is still swelling. First time around they said it was a sprain. She won't ice it and not sure how much she elevates it and has hurt it a couple of more times. So told hubby they need to get it checked again. For once the Dr's office had them take an x-ray first then they'll look at it and call them in if necessary. Mom says she broke it and now it'll take surgery to rebreak it and fix it. She has way too much time to sit and stew about it. At least we will know what's going on. She thinks she needs to go to a bone specialist. She would be a Dr's all day long if we'd take her. She just knows something is always wrong with her.

Off to make it a great day!

    I have a friend that thought his foot was broken last week. There was a name for what had happened to it but he said the X-Rays showed it wasn't broken but an outright disease name.

Glad you had a pleasant evening, Kathleen!

My Mom was a hyprocontriac, but God bless her departed soul, she only lived to 73.

It is rough with the running for her, but I know you love her and she loves you!
