Hello morning!

As I saw my breath while exhaling the cool air, my eyes greeted the morning sun.  It has been months since I have been able to step out the door on a Saturday morning to go for a wog [walk & jog = wog]. I decided before heading out that I was not going to put high expectations on myself, my only goal was to do 4 miles.

With my gloves on I fumbled with my phone as I walked down my driveway trying to turn on the apps that I use on such mornings. Right away I have this urge to turn myself around and go back inside my warm house. Though, I pushed myself past our mailbox; convincing myself that I was, in fact, going to do 4 miles today.

I started complaining in my thoughts; I am tired of being cold! I wish the sun would just shine every day like when I lived in Tennessee.

Realizing this isn’t the best way to start out my wog, I told myself; ‘you better focus on other things or you’re going to give up.’

Calories in verse calories out.

Personally, I love to gain knowledge in the subjects that I am passionate about. Either sitting in a group of 5 to 5000 listening to a speaker, or listening to an online podcasts / live feed, I find contentment listening with my pen and note book jutting down those inspiring words spoken. I eat it all up!

Every time I am made aware of an event, I would secretly ‘wish’ I could attend. It is amusing for me to day dream about how I would get there.

Would I go by plane?

What if I took the bus?

Maybe train, that would be fun!

Though, I would have no problem driving, and seeing the landscape of the United States!

I would also imagine all the people I’d meet and the conversations we would have. It would bring me so much enjoyment to ponder these things that sometimes I would become disappointed that it wouldn’t ‘work out’ and ‘maybe next time’ I would get to go. Read more… “Calories in verse calories out.”

Giving myself permission

What is that sound? I thought to myself as I tried to figure out where the head of my bed is. Somehow the position of my body was farther down the mattress than normal. Once I figured out where I had to reach, I grabbed at the floor to find my phone to turn off the alarm clock.

Right away, I start with my morning routine. Let the dogs out, get a glass of water and take my vitamins, start the coffee, and then turn the hall light on so not to shock my husband Bob awake [sometimes he turns the hall light on so I can get a few minutes longer in bed].

Getting lost in my thoughts; I think about the discussions at BSSM class the night before. Wanting to finish my reading assignment, that should have been done, I pick up my book to read a few lines before carrying on with my morning list of things. But I then figured I should get Bob’s lunch I place the book down on the countertop and proceed to get his food around. Read more… “Giving myself permission”

All creation awaits; calling out to us in 2019!

Real quick post here:

On my walk outside this morning, I couldn’t believe how clear the air felt. No fidget wind blowing, no cars driving down the road, and even though it is partly cloudy, my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude, joy, and excitement. I see the neighbor 1/4 mile down from us [whom I never spoke to before]. He is outside with whom I think is his wife [young child on her hip] looking up at the trees. Perhaps he was sharing with her what limbs he would like to trim to give the trees ‘more life.’

I not too sure if I have been noticed as I start to turn down a side road. I hold up my arm and wave, and they wave back. I shout out “Happy New Year!” and the greeting was returned.

I don’t know why but; Shouting out; “Happy New Year” in the brisk air and hear it bounce off the bear trees shook me. It’s almost liked the trees have the same sort of excitement in them. Then I am reminded of these verses in Romans: 8:18-20 TPT

I am convinced that any suffering we endure is less than nothing compared to the magnitude of glory that is about to be unveiled within us. The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters!  For against its will the universe itself has had to endure the empty futility resulting from the consequences of human sin.

Creation is calling out to us in 2019! Saying: “Know who you’ve been called to be. Know your what lies dormant inside you. You are sons and daughters of the CREATOR.”

Let us remember; God created with words. I pray that our words in 2019 create beauty. Let us break the bondage that keeps the captives bound, with words rooted from Love [GOD IS LOVE].

It is going to be an amazing year! Even creation feels it, the spirit of God is going to pour out on His people, like never before, on this earth. Wow what glorious things we will experience as the hand of God is moving across the globe!

Look to see, listen to hear, and walk with the authority given to us by Jesus!

Happy New Year my friends!
