Still praying. Practically nonstop lately. My heart is swollen. With compassion for all the victims of the flooding in Houston. But also with pride in humanity. For all the people who sacrificed to save other people and pets. I can't stop looking at all the videos posted on Facebook and twitter of the Cajun Navy, all the first responders, military, and especially just average citizens with boats and trucks hauling folks to safety.
It is humbling. It is a good lesson for all of us. To set aside politics, race and religion and just help others survive.
I put up our church sign today. Our usual sign volunter, the "Sign Ninja" as I call him, had a pretty serious accident on his bike last week. He is at home recovering. In much pain. He texted me pictures of his bruises.
The Sign Ninja is on my prayer list.
I was happy when the pastor took my suggestion in mentioning that we are praying for Texas on our sign. I said a prayer as I put up the letters.
O.K. I also uttered a few words of profanity.
Sorry, God! But those #$)(*#%&%# plastic letters don't all fit easily in the #)$(*$% slots. I had to bend them to fit.
Hurt my little fingers! And I broke two D's!
(I am SELFISHLY praying for the Sign Ninja to heal and come back and do the sign again!) ;)
But it is up now and it makes me happy to look at it!
Speaking of happy, I tried a new mug omelet this morning. It consists of a bit of butter, melted in the mug. Then one "Al Fresca Sundried Tomato Chicken Sausage" from Fred Meyers. Diced. 1 tablespoon sliced black olives. 1 tablespoon shredded mozzarella cheese.
Mixed it all up. Microwaved 1 minute. Mixed again. Microwaved 1 more minute.
I was given an old recipe book from the little church where I work in the office a few hours a week. I am going to feature some of the recipes in our newsletter.
But thumbing through this morning, I was pleased to find some very compliant recipes to my way of eating!
I am going to try tuna deviled eggs today. Pretty much a deviled egg with tuna a bit of tarragon mixed in. Those will be great to pack along in my music teacher's bag.
Also, sliced apples topped with a mixture of cream cheese, blue cheese and walnuts.
In the bag!
I'm all about convenience, portability, and healthy ingredients these days.
Speaking of health...
Today is day 75 of my Daily Hoop Experiment!
I am feeling good today!
And to put the icing on the cake, or perhaps the pineapple on the plain yogurt, I get to go to dinner with my niece and great niece!
I love family time. Especially when it is not a forced holiday get together. Just hanging out, catching up and enjoying life.
Which I intend to do.
Love, light and blessings,
