Something I’ve Been Reading

The Book of Mormon

Most of you know I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I want to share this with anyone who is interested, and if you have any questions, post them in the comments. I might not know the answer, but we can work together to find one.

I believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. I want to share my love for Them, and Their love for you.

I will be writing more about this in the future. God bless, and may you have a very happy Christmas season!

Scripture Sunday, September 25, 2022

Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:28-31

The year is almost over! Time is speeding up! I apologize for my sporatic posting as of late. With my brother-in-law’s passing and my ongoing health issues, it’s been difficult to keep track.

But I should have some answers tomorrow. I see the surgeon at 8:30 am. I imagine we will be scheduling surgery at that time. All the preliminary work has been done.

Meanwhile, trying to keep my meals less acidic. Here are my breakfast and lunch pics.

Tofu scramble and a banana for breakfast. Lunch was a take on my Spanish tortilla. I added broccoli to the mix. It’s still pretty good. I just wanted some veggies.

What are your wellness plans for today?

I apologize for not posting for a couple of weeks. I had the pictures and everything, but time got away from me. But this is what I ate today.

This was leftovers from last night. Pasta with red sauce and broccoli. An easy one pan meal. Made a delicious breakfast.

Lunch was a rice and quinoa blend to which I added shredded cabbage. A little soy sauce to season. Quite good! Better than I expected.

Dinner was a veggie sub from Subway. But they left off my olives. Oh well. It was still good.

On another note, I have an appointment with a surgeon on the first of September. What’s wrong with me needs surgery. I will keep you posted.

What did your Wednesday look like?

I wanted to come on and let you know I’m getting settled at my sister’s house. It has taken more out of me than I expected. And now I’m sick with a bug. Not the big C.

Still trying to take care of my mental health. I believe I will have something big to share next week that I am really excited about, if my suspicions are right, and they usually are when it comes to my health. But I have to get the final roundup before I can share.

I am learning a lot about compassion and forgiveness these days. Being kind is more than just buzz words.

So do yourself and your world a favor and be kind. It is extremely healing.

How can you show kindness today?

It’s been a ride! But hopefully I can get back to posting what I eat vegan to try to stay healthy. Not everything is perfect, but I keep trying.

I’m trying to have more protein in the morning. This is the only protein shake I like. And it’s pretty good. I start the day with it and I’m good to go til lunch. I’m not much of a breakfast eater anyway, unless it’s brunch.

I love potatoes. A simple lunch with Chick-fil-a Polynesian sauce I found at my local Detwiler’s. It’s a Mennonite grocery store here in the Sarasota area.

I forgot to take a picture before I began to eat this Impossible Whopper. Only has lettuce and ketchup. We had to go grocery shopping and we were hungry. But I can still not eat a whole one. Hubby always finishes mine.

What was on your menu today?

In case I didn’t say, they found no cancer. The bad news is they don’t know what is wrong. But I have a good team of doctors who aren’t giving up. More testing ahead. I will keep you posted.

Meanwhile, another what I ate today.

Breakfast was baby potatoes with vegan cheese sauce and grape tomatoes. So good!

Lunch was potato soup and 3 peach halves. Delicious!

Dinner was homemade vegan mac and cheese and baby beets. I must say, I had some pretty satisfying food today!

And one more thing.

Thank you for being with me the past 8 years! Y’all are the best!
