It's raining and overcast today. These kind of days always make me want to burrow down into the covers and sleep a little later. This morning the unrelenting knowledge I needed to rise and and go to the bathroom nipped that in the bud. Once out of bed the desire to go back diminished. I filled myself spiritually...............with the rain subsided for now I felt inspired to walk outside. The rain had stopped temporarily and I choose to believe it was for my benefit..........to experience the beauty of the morning. The downfalls I usually have is thinking I could always do more. I know that is possible. I also know the pushing beyond limits can also be my downfall. My inspiration this morning was you have only just begun we have time for that later. Do what has been set before you enjoying what is here now. Jumping in and thinking everything has to be done to perfection. All or nothing. My message I need to remember. "Perfection is God's attribute." Perfection is not mine. Had I achieved that there would be no more need of my being here. Perfection how boring ........no room for improvement or adventure in learning new things.

Today is a day I will be at home. The rain will keep Bob here with me something I'm very grateful . I love rainy days it makes me feel so safe and secure inside. A day to clean a closet or perhaps sew.

Positives and gratitudes..................be
ing filled spiritually...........the rain...................opportu
nity to walk outside.....................th
e gentle pushes that keep me on track...................this site that gives me support.............Bob (so happy to have his company today)............God always by my side if I let him.

    The rain stopped for both of us to get outdoors and do our walking! I just made it home again before the rain started back up.

    Have a wonderfully blessed day,
    Hugs,

    Marie, we put so much stress on ourselves to be perfect...and it's so hard to recognize we are not...that our goal is to strive to be G-dlike.

    Blessings
