This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Time for Family

This summer on my short time away from work, my husband and I was able to take our two granddaughters camping at Livingston Campground. This was their first time camping and they were able to enjoy it with their cousin. I have been reading a lot about "balancing" your time and taking time to unplug from devices and other technology. As you can see, I have even taken time away from posting on my blogs. It has been refreshing to say the least. I challenge you to try it. Here is a Google + book that I made from our camping photos. Not sure if it is going to show up for you. You probably have to have a Google Account to view this. Before signing off, let me mention that Dr. Oz spoke today about a new disease called TEXT-itis! Yes, believe it. You probably have experience the burning pain in your neck and shoulders. It is from leaning forward while texting, but I get it from keyboarding on my laptop at the office! I have been trying to stand up at my desk more. If you have some articles on any of these, please share. Now for the Google+book on our Camping Trip.

New Alphabet

A is for apple, and B is for boat, That used to be right, but now it won't float! Age before beauty is what we once said,But let's be a bit more realistic instead. 

Now the Alphabet: 
A's for arthritis;
B's the bad back, 
C's the chest pains,perhaps car-di-ac? 
is for dental decay and decline, 
E is for eyesight, can't read that top line! 
F is for flatulence and fluid retention,
G is for gut droop, which I'd rather not mention. 
H high blood pressure--I'd rather it low; 
I for incisions with scars you can show. 
J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend,
K is for knees that crack when they bend. 
L 's for libido, what happened to sex? 
M is for memory, I forget what comes next. 
N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low; 
O is for osteo, bones that don't grow!
P for prescriptions, I have quite a few, just give me a pill and I'll be good as new! 
is for queasy, is it fatal or flu? 
is for re flux, one meal turns to two. 
is for sleepless nights, counting my fears, 
T is for Tinnitus; bells in my ears! 
U is for urinary; troubles with flow;
V for vertigo, that's 'dizzy,' you know.. 
W for worry, now what's going 'round? 
X is for x-ray, and what might be found. 
for another year I'm left here behind,
Z is for zest I still have-- in my mind! 
I've survived all the symptoms, my body's deployed,
And I'm keeping twenty-six doctors fully employed!


Have a wonderful Day

I read a newsletter from a dear friend, Yvonne Barrage who shared the acronym for JOY. She said it was something she learned as a youngster from her parents. I am fond of acronyms and want to not only to share it with my grandchildren, but with you also. I created a little image using a great website: Canva. It helps you create design easily. You can sign up for free! Check out my "JOY" design below. I was able to save the design as an image or pdf. Thank you +YvonneBarrage for sharing your thoughts and inspiring this design. You can catch her blog here: Grace Bound

Advantages of Google +

I have really enjoyed using Google + and the ease in connecting with like-minded people. Love how you can post to certain circles without all the Facebook issues. One example of the advantage of using Google + is how I became acquainted with Phil Wagner. I discovered his blog called, "God's Gymnasium" and was blown away by the wonderful suggestion he gave on memorizing scripture. I actually experienced this first hand by joining Beth Moore's Siesta Scripture Memory Team (SSMT) that she holds every other year. It was my first year and I was amazed what I gained from memorizing bible verses during the year. We liked it so much; that we formed a Facebook group to continue called "The Refuge". I hope you take to time to read Phil's blog post, because I plan to check out his helpful suggestions to memorize more verses. Love the link to Gateway's 100 most popular bible verses. Wouldn't that be a fantastic challenge? Memorize all 100 verses! Think we can do this? Sure we can!

We Need to Hear, See, Internalize This: I AM GOD!

Take a short 2 1/2 minute break from your day to watch this powerful video. I am glad I did and hope you will share it too. I located it from +Phil Wagner in California on Google+ Love how small the world seems when we share across the world with others.
