I'm not sure HOW to delegate specific blogs to places... you know: the one that appears first, next, and so on and so forth. However.
My hope is that:
- those of you who are younger will heed and guide. Yes, youth CAN & DOES guide old ladies.
- those of you who are my age will understand and share. Your walk is different from mine.
- those of you who are over 80 will smile and rebuke gently. We need words from experience.
Today, my body is not behaving / responding / acting in ways that are familiar. I sort of broke down tonight just from the struggle. Okay. So I broke down big time. Maybe I'm entitled??? A little bit????
I do know from experience that giving thanks is the best medicine I can take. Yes, it is hard, sometimes, to find the good among the aches, pains, sleeplessness, too-much-to-do-ness, too-much-to-handle-ness.
It's often said to one who whines, "Well, but the alternative is worse."
NO. ABSOLUTELY NOT.
My alternative is that my e-mail will be firstname.lastname@example.org WOW. Get it???????????
However. God told Paul to write: ..... to live is CHRIST.
So, I try. I smile. I want to honor my Lord. I write my thanksgivings......
