I Noticed

As I turned off all the distractions,

The cellphone, the tv, the music, distractions,

I noticed the flowers in bloom in the yard,

The sound of the birds and the insect’s alarm.

I noticed my breathing the fresh air around,

The sounds of my children speaking around.

I noticed they loved the look in my eye

When distractions gone, and they saw my delight.

I noticed the quiet, the calm and the peace

And talking to God was immediate ease.

And I noticed that life was much better by ten

And decided the distractions were at a permanent end.❤

Clarity for the Asking

Some things, I am learning gradually but do not yet quite understand 100%. One of these is the perpetuation of prayer, it’s continuousness in my soul and spirit of asking God stuff. I can have an issue or problem on my mind or soul or spirit and rather than issuing the same prayer about it more than once, God continues to hear that prayer and at the right time when I am ready to receive the answer, God indeed answers that problem. I had that happen today and I am out loud giving God the glory for the answer to a problem of about a year now. And I received the answer through a fellow blogger’s blog tonight, Joshua Shea, and he is searching, not a Christian yet to my knowledge. But I am quite certain the answer was from the Holy Spirit nonetheless. And the glory goes to God almighty, who can answer our prayers and clarify our issues however and through whomever He wishes. I am floored by the amazing God we serve! Oh how I love Him!❤❤❤

Wisdom from Fasting

I decided to write a new book… Wisdom from Fasting will be the title. The reason I will write it is because I want every Christian to fast and see the enormous blessings of this obedience. God draws so close and gently to you. Prayers under the obedience and faith of fasting are answered personally. God draws close. It is the most beautiful experience of God’s love and care. This weekly obedience is the best decision of my life.😄❤

The Nicest Day Ever

If there was ever a nicer day than today, it has escaped from my memory banks. Many things made it the nicest. The obvious one is the weather. Beautiful blue skies, cool breeze, warm sun and refreshing after-the-rain smell and freshness. But also making it nice is having a pause in my work to take my daughter to the park and be able to praise God for His glorious creation so beautifully shown in the nature here. Also nice is that the rain last night helped my newly planted fence-vine shoots to be healthy and happy. Also, the fence is now officially completed in preparation for the promised Christmas dog. The sun feels great on my skin. Zach is at his dad’s so is not bring picked on at home. Everyone is healthy and prayed over. And I cannot help but believe this to be the nicest day ever. And now I shared it with you. And I hope God blesses you today also with the nicest day ever. ❤

Garden Joy

Today I planted peas, carrots and radishes. We already have blackberry bushes growing and rosemary thriving. I also transplanted two ginger plants the birds were kind enough to plant in our yard. So God has been good to us. And very little in life brings me more sheer joy than working our garden. I was raised on a farm in Buchanan, Michigan and having a garden was my normal. I live it. It has taken me a while to Learn the stark differences to growing food in central Florida. Growing seasons are different, soil needs a lot of love constantly, bugs are incredibly resilient and prolific, so on. So these first few years are experimental but I am hopeful we will do well. I am watching a lot of youtube tutorials for our area. So may God bless our efforts and let’s see what happens. 😄❤

6 Pounds To Go

Am I over-emphasizing the numbers? Yes but on purpose. I believe in tangible, recordable goals. And I achieved 44 pounds down to greater health since the brhinning of June. My means was the Paleo nutrition lifestyle, which has worked beautifully for me. I get to ear healthy, nutritious food without feeling hungry or deprived and it has allowed me to achieve most of my extra weight shedding while encouraging this very doable healthy nutritious lifestyle. I see it as eating closer to nature, appreciating food as God made it, healthy and unaided by excessive additions which discourage the nutrition of the food. And I only have 6 pounds left to go. That is not so daunting as my original 50. It was achieved healthily with one pound down at a time. I did not get sleepy large overnight and I knew it would take time to come off, but this was way faster than I imagined. And now life is the main focus of life and not the next meal. That is the blessing from God for good health. When we obey Him and do everything in moderation (even eat), making nothing too important besides Him, He blesses. He overwhelmingly blesses. God is magnificent, friends. He truly is a marvel and oh how I love Him!❤❤❤
