I started doing a lot of blogs and thoroughly loved sharing my heart and my joy in art and pictures...then life got too busy ...it still is TOO busy but must slow down and think and enjoy some creativity or I will be in mental and emotional trouble.
Nutritionally I have been Gluten free for celiac for 2.5 years, I have been working very hard at portion control and calorie restriction and am trying a month of no actual measure or tracking calories ...looking forward to returning to that discipline in July.
Have been exploring and becoming accustomed to "Eat to Defeat Cancer and Fat Cells" diet plan and now reading Eat to Live ...though not agreeing with everything in either of these programs, I feel I am learning much for better health. Also am finally kicking the sugar habit...not total victory there but learning and accepting.
Physically I have been faithful to wear pedometer and have seen a few 7000 step days, but average is still about 4500. Fibromyalgia continues to rear its ugly head in pain levels and exhaustion but am forcing myself to push through and work beside my DH in huge market garden and attend Farmer's Markets with him Tues, Thurs, Saturdays and recoup on Mon, Wed, Fri and Sundays, even Dh rests!! Physical therapy has helped shoulder and hip pain from arthritis and some displacement. Now to continue to strengthen them and address the knees. Weight - have lost 12 pounds since 2/23/13 and want it off faster, but accepting progress slow but sure. Still dreaming and working towards "one-derland" by Christmas morning. I'm also still in process with the BOUNDARIES book...practicing and will try to move on in the chapters soon.
Spiritually, am being blessed with faithfulness in the Word and prayer life with Jesus. I long to be an encouragement to others in this most important part of our lives and have a growing ministry in the area of grief caring and "coming along side". I will be commissioned to role of hospital chaplain for our church on the 30th of this month.
Creatively, I continue to seek and enjoy lovely, peaceful and wholesome art with an ever-growing file system of treasures per computer. I have no desire to own these works of art, just want to look at them and enjoy and imagine little stories that go with so many of them. I have a deep love for Yorkie dogs and pictures of Christmas all year long.
This one represents me in the garden ...I only wish I was that young and delightful looking. Artist is Vernon Thomas.
This is one I have been searching for artist and finally found the name and title of picture is "A Special Pleader" By Charles B.Barbor
is one I still am looking for artist's name. I love pictures of praying and praying hands and the Bible in various ways.
God bless each one who sees this and be blessed and healthy.
