Sometimes you just have to do it easy. Had potatoes and broccoli earlier, hubby got pizza on the way home. Tomatoes, peppers, onions, mushrooms, and olives on a tomato sauce base topped with fresh basil. Delish!

I’ll be getting my walking in a little later. I actually got more than 3000 steps in Sunday!

Are you doing something fun this Wellness Wednesday?

Making memories with my niece and her family at Disney All Star Music Resort!

We played mini golf at Blizzard Beach. Thought the South Hole was hilarious!

We haven’t seen her family in over 20 years! Great to have good times with family!

Scripture Sunday, March 24, 2019

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, reconcile yourselves to the will of God, and not to the will of the devil and of the flesh; and remember, after ye are reconciled unto God, that it is only in and through the grace of God that ye are saved.

What a beautiful day! Started with a simple potato after the best doctor visit ever! My blood levels are excellent! My iron is 13, my hba1c is 6.7, hdl is 81 and ldl is 68. That’s what happens when one eats plants!

We spent the day shopping and then hubby took me out for dinner. Delicious tofu teriyaki and miso soup. Had to bring the leftovers home because I can’t eat that much!

I’m feeling so much better! Walking, eating the best food, rest, even had a horrible cold and it’s gone after 6 days. I never heal that quickly! Grateful I can function again.

It’s still hard for me to fathom that, just 5 months after this picture was taken, my mom was gone.

She had been diagnosed with cancer January of that year. To a fourteen year old, I knew she was going to die, but in my mind, it would be 20 years or so down the road. How was I to know?

That summer was unbearably hot and muggy. I don’t recall a summer before then to have been that oppressive. I had the opportunity to go to the National Ministries Conference in Montreat, North Carolina, that July, where our choir was the headline entertainment. I was a soloist, and was thrilled! And it was so cool in the mountains.

When I came home in August, my mom was already bedridden. It was practically overnight. One of us always had to stay with her, but she didn’t like us to hover. We learned a lot of solitaire games that summer.

School started the day after Labor Day. Friday of that week she was taken to the hospital. I went to see her Saturday, and she was already in a coma. On my way home from the hospital, she died. September 12, 1970, at 4:05 pm.

My life has never been the same since. Death turns one’s life inside out.

I’m grateful for my faith that I’ll be reunited with her, and all my other loved ones, who have passed from this life to the next. It brings me comfort and peace.

Scripture Sunday, March 17, 2019

But the Lord of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isaiah 5: 16,20

Thoughtful Thursday, March 14, 2019

I learned that Facebook was having a global problem. So my rant yesterday was a bit premature. Seems it was happening to many, many people. And not just on Facebook. I believe Instagram was affected, too.

So, my apologies to Facebook.

What are you thinking about this Thursday?
