There is no place like home even in deep south Texas where the normal temperature for this time of year is 100. Thank God for air conditioning.
I arrived home tired and with much to do but am taking it one day at a time, doing the essential things first.
The services were good where I spoke, the people kind and generous, the convention was the best I had been in in ages and the 40 year church dedication was super.
I did have an accident as I was visiting my very ill sister in law in an area I am not used to driving in and when I looked off to the side to see the street I hit a car from behind. Even the officer was nice to me, the car repair place was very helpful as was the car rental place.
We can persevere in anything if we make up our mind to do so. I had just finished my last service in Kansas City that morning, had the accident, rented a car and the next day drove to Oklahoma to the anniversary and other services. Finished up just in time to drive back to Kansas City and the next day picked up my car and drove to Oklahoma again to visit friends and do one more service then on home.
Now if I could do that I can take off the pounds I gained while I was gone and have already lost some of them.
We can, we can, we can do what we make up our minds to do. Come on men and women. Put your mind to do it and you will see the pounds coming off. I know not all need to lose weight, but have other issues we resolve to solve each day.
God bless all
