Tuesday 4: What Things

It’s time for Toni Taddeo’s Tuesday 4. Questions about your life. The original questions are at this link.

1. What makes you tired? Physically, almost everything these days. Old age isn’t for sissies. Spiritually, I try to stay renewed in Jesus Christ. He is our only hope. If I stay focused on Him I’m alright. Mentally, trying to keep up with what’s bothering the mentally ill and perpetually offended (i.e. “woke” but they’re actually devil worshipers) these days.

2.What things do you value in life? Life itself. It’s precious and we have no right to take it from others, especially the unborn or children. I value my friends (including you, of course) and especially my Church family. I have no other biological or adopted family to speak of other than a niece, Deborah, via my husband’s side. She’s a treasure. Almost like a daughter.

3. How do you want others to see you? Oh, undeniably, I hope others see Christ in me and want to know Him as their personal Lord and Saviour.

4.  What things do you enjoy most and find most relaxing to do? Reading my Medieval History books, especially concerning the Tudor Age. I wouldn’t want to live during that time but it was a pivotal time in all our history. It was the re-introduction of Christianity in our cultures by shaking off the shackles of the pagan Mary (which was actually the false goddess Diana) worship. Not only did it help lead many to Christ but it led to prosperity, adventure and colonialism. It was an exciting time of discovery.

Thanks for stopping by and participating. Can’t wait to read what everyone else thinks about life. I know I’ve been very quiet lately but I had a really severe attack of the IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) in the wee hours of Friday morning. 😬 It was one of the worst I’ve had to-date. I really almost passed over. My heart was terribly stressed. I collapsed on the bathroom floor in a cold sweat after the event. Then I had lost so many electrolytes that I had suffered severe leg cramp on my right side. It was so bad there are even bruises along the ankle where it happened. I missed Church on Sunday because I was still deeply stressed, fatigued and emotionally drained. I only started improving by Sunday evening. It was awful and it left me worn out and low. But, to God be the Glory, I am recovering. Prayers are appreciated though. 😍👏

God bless you all. (>‿◠)✌💕

Monday Musings: Busyness

We’ve been so super busy around here lately, and that’s not a complaint. I like staying busy. Our Church hosted a free Movie & A Pizza night on Saturday. We advertised but regrettably no one outside of the Church attended. Oh, well, their loss. It seems that Church’s everywhere are losing parishioners. That’s one glaring reason we’re all in such a mess. Kick God outta the Schools and Government and whatya get? A demonic Government, of course. I wish I had realized sooner how important it is to be a part of a loving congregation. They’ve helped me grow in Christ so much. I pray about this and more concerning our Country daily. I’m sure everyone else here does as well. One day, Church’s will be gone, and it will be a sad loss for those Left Behind. 😔😟

Mother’s Day ❤️ was nice at Church, though. There were quite a few more than our usual 10-20 attendee’s. I always like seeing more there.

This morning, Steve and I finally got around to cutting up a dead Red Cedar that had fallen against the back fence. I was wondering what to do with all that lovely Cedar and Steve came up with the idea to turn them into natural bird houses! 🐦 I like that idea lots! Cedar is valuable wood. We have so many that sometimes I wish we had a small sawmill to plane them into lumber.

I’ve also been doing quite a bit of flower gardening. 💮 🎕 My favorite flower right now are Petunia’s. They’re hardy, inexpensive, come back every year without much effort, don’t need much sun but can take full sun, and almost zero care. Win-win. I’ve bought so many lately that a local plant nursery now know me by my first name. 😂

A local trusted merchant hand raises and sells whole sides of beef, prepacked, frozen and ready for cooking. We’ve ordered a 1/4 of a cow and should receive the order next week. I’ve never done this before. Hope it works out well. I do know it’s way cheaper than buying the meat each week.

Jack, Sam, & Maggie

Other than that, not much else going on. We and the dog’s are all well and enjoying our moments in the sun. But isn’t the best thing of all that we can take a moment (or two) out of our busyness to enjoy knowing The Son of God and His goodness no matter where we are or our circumstances?! Amen. 🙏🏻❣️🙏🏻

Y’all have a blessed day and week. Thanks for stopping by.
