Daily Prayable: Find Inspiration Through God - Wednesday, December 15, 2010
As I sit musing, I wonder, where does inspiration comes from? Everything distracts me as I work at my desk: the indigo flame of sunset out my window, a sweet furball of a dog with the bark of Darth Vader asking for a belly rub, the joyboy padding down the hall, sleep in his starsize eyes, Bach's Air on G, wafting through my home.
My mind wanders to the fresh crusty bread waiting in the kitchen. The crock pot filled with noodles, chicken, carrots. Nothing to inspire me on the page today! Too much good to wade through in my life. Glory be.
Thank You for my muses and the music of my life. Please continue to rain blessings on me and all who enter my home.

It took me forever to realize what my problem really was. I was being too easy on myself.
Fat, ugly, stupid...that's easy? Yes, terribly so. Addictively so, in my case...

As the holidays approach, cold weather will keep many of us indoors, and the risk of catching a cold or the flu skyrockets. I know the last thing I want to deal with during the holidays is a fever, sore throat, or constant sneezing! There are wise actions you can take to help prevent the spread of ...
William Shakespeare, "Henry IV"
His cuisses on his thighs,
Rise from the ground like feather'd Mercury,
And vaulted with such ease into his seat,
As if an angel dropp'd down from the clouds,
To turn and wind a fiery Pegasus
And witch the world with noble horsemanship.
