His wing-tip shoes sparkled from a recent shine, every hair was in place, including his perfectly groomed moustache."

Wonder Woman and Her Bustier



I have to add this........ I had forgot it when I posted a bit ago........ I am so tired and a bit humdrum....


.........When the Dr came in this morning to administer my shot....... He first sat and chatted a while about my back and how might I have hurt my back this bad....... this was my answer to him........... "I was Wonder Woman for my late 30's until my early 50's.. at which point I retired my Bustier and knee high boots.... and some days I have visions of grandeur and try to wriggle in them again" hahahha
Now you know my personality......... I cannot help it......... Grandmother says that I reminded her of my Uncle James that had laughing eyes and always happy............. :) The Dr had a good laugh....... it cut the ice so to speak......... for in just a few minutes I had to bare my butt to this young guy.................ahahhaha


night all (I want to thank Melanie over at Melanie Joy for the wonder woman reminder) hahahaha


Pizza and Heating Pad


Hahahahhahaha.... got this tonight in a couple of emails........ Thought this would represent my day........ It was off to the Dr for the first shot. Things went really good and I expected more than it was..... Not too painful and no side effects so to speak. Left there around 12:00 noon and stopped to get a bite so I could take a pain pill as advised by the Dr. His directions were to go home and get in my recliner and get off my butt so to speak and let the medicine work......... That was our precise intentions............. but how many of you know that life gets in the way of our plans...... About an hour from home Dad called and said that Mom was in terrible pain and he had no one to call....... Reminded him that I was an hour away............ They do not have any pills of any kind in the house except for his medicine which he is responsible to keep away from Mom... She will take anything she sees, so I have to keep all her medicine at my house including any Tylenol or anything such....... Long story short.....got home at 2:15 got Mom and headed to ER............ Three hours latter and helping her up and down sitting in those hard ER chairs we finally got to see the Dr............ Severe reoccurrence of the gout in her foot........ She was in terrible shape.......... finally got her some pain pills and another round of cortisone and headed to Pharmacy for medicine and pizza for dinner ( so much for salad and grilled salmon) Got Mom home after several stops and a new electric foot bath which should help........ and I need to get her into a Podiatrist this week sometime.............

Now it is 8:00 and my head hurts and I need to watch that real close...... It is one of the only side effects..... spinal headache....... but I have decided that it is just a headache and will be fine with a nice hot shower and soft bed.... Thanks for all the prayers....... I will know in a couple of days what the shot is going to do........... I am encouraged..........

I Did Not Die Today

......I just finished a book called Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller . It is really an interesting book and I did really enjoy reading it as it was so different from all the other Christian books next to my chair. If you have not read it then you should just because of the colorful way he writes. As I read through it I began to see the "light" that the Lord was trying to bring into my life.

....I have been a Christian since 1977 and I have always thought myself to have grown in the Lord over those years and that I had let go of most all of the bondages that Religion can bring into our lives.... This book talks about these bondages....... Toward the end of the book he began to bring the theme of the book to a close and I could see where there were areas of my life that I really needed the Lord to clean out the dark corners that I have kept for myself...

....I have used the cliché that God loves the sinner and hates the sin...... and I have said out loud that I hate the sin but love the person........ but do I always ? No I do not and the Lord is bringing me into a place that I am finding that I need change. I am always so thankful when the Lord brings light into my darkness as it assures me that He is taking me to a new place in Him... ....I am encouraged........

...The thing that I want to leave with you about this book is a single statement in the book that made me stop and take inventory of my life........ Just a single statement written on paper..... but it spoke to my heart and caused me to repent............
...Donald was visiting with a friend and they were discussing how he (Donald) was living a life following the Lord......... the friend then said ......... If you got up this morning and did not die then maybe you are not fully following the Lord............!

Can we choose the day that we die, or can we just die on days that we have time? The apostle Paul told us that we are to die daily.....

1Cr 15:31
I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

Gal 2:20
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

I did not die today.......... I don't think I died yesterday........... I need to die daily so that I can hear His voice and follow His leading.................. I am thankful the the correction that the Lord bring into my life...........
