"Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be. Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar, and you'll live as you've never lived before."
-Erich Fromm-

I think i'm a rehabilitating worry wart...

I was told today that i rarely do any posts... It's true.
But, lately I've been so busy... I barely have time to sleep(about 3-4 hrs). I guess it's a good thing to be busy, but some days.. it's too much to handle.

Truth be told... my time-less life is not as bad as I make it sound. Some days God gives a little more "umpf" to my day and I feel like I can't control it. I literally feel insane... my brain goes on overload and I tweak. I understand worrying is a normal human function, but I yearn for the day where worrying is no longer in my vocabulary. I want,  I crave, I desire, I NEED to NO longer worry.

I'm learning: Worrying accomplishes NOTHING. Worrying is a mental burden and sometimes causes us to become physically sick. Worrying pushes you in an entirely different direction then that which you are supposed to be trekking. AND... Worrying is the opposite of trusting God.

Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
(Philippians 4:6-7)

Life is about how we choose to see things. Even in the difficult times, when it seems like no one cares, I can put my trust in knowing that God cares for my EVERY need. I'd like to spend my time more wisely and enjoyably...

How do you deal with worry?? I'd like to know.

Blessings to all! :)

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
(Matthew 6:34)

Confusion is defined as the inability to think with your usual speed or clarity, including feeling disoriented and having difficulty paying attention, remembering, and making decisions.

I feel like Atlas...carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders. And still, I push, grind, persevere just to get over the mountain. Some days I feel I can't continue. I WANT to give up. Take the easy way out. I'm no quitter, but it seems as if that's my only option. To throw in the towel. Wave the flag. 

Then...Jiminy Cricket...my conscience speaks to my soul: Why should I count myself out when God still sees potential in me?

I'm stuck pondering these words.

Psalm 145:14 (The Message)
God gives a hand to those down on their luck, gives a fresh start to those ready to quit.

It Gets Under Your Skin...

This weekend I was able to visit the controversial "Bodies:The Exhibition" with the BFF. I was simply amazed! We never stop to think how intricate our bodies are. With the functionality we are given to walk, run, sit, chew, and even think ... how are we able to state that there is not a God? It baffles me. I was completely and utterly awed. 

If you get the change to visit this exhibition... i urge you to. Beware, there are a few rooms that are disturbing(even for me). 

I would continue my post and complain about this and that, but I would rather change the situation I am in so I am able to report my overcoming. May God continue to bless you all!

Autumn song...

Autumn Song  
by: Katherine Mansfield
Now's the time when children's noses
All become as red as roses
And the colour of their faces
Makes me think of orchard places
Where the juicy apples grow,
And tomatoes in a row.

And to-day the hardened sinner
Never could be late for dinner,
But will jump up to the table
Just as soon as he is able,
Ask for three times hot roast mutton--
Oh! the shocking little glutton.

Come then, find your ball and racket,
Pop into your winter jacket,
With the lovely bear-skin lining.
While the sun is brightly shining,
Let us run and play together
And just love the autumn weather. 
Finally... Summer is coming to it's end. Truly, i am more than glad. I am not a fan of summer, though the times spent with friends and family are more than life itself. I'd rather have a fire burning, bake cookies, wrap tamales and spend time with family/friends while creating new memories and i can't forget the SNOW, sweaters, boots, pea coats, gloves, scarves, etc.. 
Fall and Winter are the seasons i look most forward to. And on this early September morning when I should be sleeping.. my heart is w-i-d-e awake, yet full of dreams. Brother and I have been putting this business deal together and were are just getting our toes wet. Can't wait for the final break through. DREAM...DREAM...DREAM!!!! 

Speaking of... I've always had an inkling to attempt "crafty things." And decided that Mom and Dad needed a little something for the house.. with it being the beginning of fall and all. SO-o... i oiled the old gears and put my mind to work... thus creating...
Beginning stages

Ending of Day #1
My favorite touches
Finished Product

I'm pretty proud of my FIRST attempt to create a wreath. And, it'll look fabulous over the fireplace mantle!!

It's time for me to say farewell...
Keep dreaming and take the steps necessary to complete those dreams.  

Until next time! :)

As you all know, i had begun the Daniel's Fast last week, and was doing better than I thought I would for my 2nd year around... and then... IT happened. I woke up Thursday Morning feeling weird, by Thursday night... the flu bug had set in. It's always times when i make the decision for change that something comes and ruins all the fun. Despite pleas from the parents and Dr. I continued the fast until I couldn't step 1 foot out of bed. SOO-o... if you didn't get the post by now.. I had to abruptly discontinue my Daniel's Fast and was told not to retry the fast until my (energy)levels and body were up to par. Thus ruining my attempt at Daniel's Fast year Numero Dos. 

I'm still not 100%, but I forced myself to go to work yesterday and today. And ready for what life has to offer. I learned a lot in the few days of fasting and i intend to continue this journey to a new "ME"...so to speak.

Keep me in your prayers and my Daddy too. He has surgery on Monday morning.

Blessings to all!

Here's a little picture of Leila and I... she doesn't seem to enthused.
P.S. please excuse the messy hair-do!

Daniel's Fast: Day #1

Yesterday began the reckoning of a new Me! My focus is set on what God's plan for me is...thus beginning a transformation.

My mission:
I choose to walk in victory, which begins by telling my flesh "NO!" when it rears its ugly head, demanding to be fulfilled.
Next, lies that I've believed, sometimes for years, must be replaced with the truth of God's Word.
Finally, and most importantly, I will seek the Lord above all else every single day because I can't walk in freedom without Him.

Dinner was a Whole Wheat Garlic Lemon Spaghetti w/ broccoli and mushrooms + a side of green beans. Some days, i like to boast on my cooking...this is one of those days.

I also get to enjoy one of my favorite snacks...

Tomorrow i will post on Day #2.
Blessings and Peace to all!

The Truth...

Aww... It's rare that you find a song to explain what your heart feels.

My life hasn't been this good until you became a part of it again!

I love you!!!

Happiness is...?

Happiness is: a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure or joy.

 Find ways to make the mundane EXCITING! Relieve the stress and tension with HUMOR! Soften the sadness and pain with SWEETNESS!
Keep an eye on your happiness. If someone enters your life, dont let them leave with it.


What makes/keeps you happy?

"...Fear not, for I have redeemed you; have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD, your God..." ▪Isaiah 43:1-3▪
