How’s it going?

posted by Ruth Graham

I have been off line for several days. It’s sort of nice to have to do things the “old fashioned” way. It’s hard to remember a time when we didn’t have the Internet and e-mail.

Last time we talked about making resolutions. How’s it going? Have you been able to keep them? Have some fallen by the wayside? Have you shrugged them off?

Let’s be transparent here! I will tell you that I made several resolutions: to exercise at the health and fitness center; to have my devotional time first thing, not watch the weather and news.

Well, I have had a bad sinus infection which has drained me of all energy and made me feel quite yucky. So I have given myself a pass on exercise – although I do some stretching in the morning. We have had such variable weather that I gave myself permission to check it out when I go to the kitchen to get my tea. Then I go back to my chair to have devotions.

I don’t feel like I have failed – just delayed things.

How are you doing?

The Blessings that Remain
I may have posted this last year...it's worth repeating.   There are loved ones that are missing From the fireside and the feast; There are faces that have vanished There are voices that have ceased; And we know they passed forever From our mortal grief and pain - And we

Being Thankful
I  got this some years ago. It is by an unknown author. It's all a matter of perspective.   Being thankful for: The mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends. The taxes I pay because it means that I am employed. The clothes that fit a little
