It is summer…it’s July almost halfway gone and things are strange.  We have had so much rain here where I live, hardly any sun so far.  And being in the house most of the time has been like a cheese grater traveling up my spine.  Dialysis and doctors, doctors and dialysis; this has been the life this summer for someone who loves activity and getting out amongst people.  I almost feel like I am hiding my light under a bushel and that is not my calling in life.  But maybe it is.  Perhaps I have thought I could handle things myself and I know better to think that. My faith is that I trust only in God to guide my path.  So I am thinking today very seriously that this is a period of time in my life that I must get back into my relationship with Him again.  Although I still spend my special quiet time with Him, I haven’t been able to get outside and enjoy His presence in the flowers and the songs of the birds, the flittering squirrels playing in the yard and the giant trees of the neighborhood.  I can still get out on the porch and enjoy Him as before.  And I will.  In fact I feel moved to do that right now before the day is ending.  Have a wonderful evening to you and yours and be blessed beyond your dreams today.  Every day is a gift.  Open it all through each day you are given and enjoy it to the fullest.  One day at a time…that’s the way to live…and enjoy every second of it. To the porch I go, to meditate on creation.

    I love watching the world go by. It is very meditative. From the front porch or a local park, or even a freeway rest area, it’s nice to sit back, relax, and enjoy the feeling of being part of a bigger universe. Of time meandering on and on, and watching the seasons change. It IS all a gift, and I think people who are touched by serious illness or the illness of close companions can probably see that more clearly than most.

    I was surfing around your site a little bit and I can’t seem to find any sort of about page. You have the NoNo Sleeve page that explains what the sleeves are and why you are interested in marketing them (cool idea, btw), but you don’t have a nice little page to go to where I can learn about YOU!

    BTW–THANK YOU for having me on your followed blogs links. That is really nice! I follow upwards of a hundred or so blogs including yours of all different types and subject matters (only recently culling a few that I don’t read anymore), so I haven’t posted them. That’s a LOT of blogs. I’m really good at reading them and procrastinating and not getting the stuff I should be getting done, done. lol
