Pain pain go away

I love the fact that I am able to ask GOD to help me.
My sciatica is yelping at present.
The pain feels like when I was little and had a toothache.
A kind of dull repetitive ache.
But I can't help to thank God that I have a hip.
I went to a Blues event recently and met a fella with only two stumps.
He was a jolly bearded fella.
Had a cap on and a flannel shirt.
He sat upright in the wheelchair.
He could manuever that thing like it was a race car.
His name was Stephan.
I remember somewhere between him busting thru the back door at this resturant we were at and the first couple of chords of the song, Walter shouts out" This one is for you Stephan!!!".
He smiled and nodded running his hands against the wheels looking as if he was gonna pop a wheelie any minute.
Down the aisle he raced, stumps jumping in the wind.
I sorta got sad and then I said to myself, "Self, Does he any better? Does he care?"
He was just as happy ... out partying just like us.
GOD has a wonderful way of showing us things.
Stephan is one of them for me.
I can't even think to complain right now.
I thank God for the words to write and to be able to blog.
Some months ago I couldn't get to this site to blog.
I love writing and this has taken my mind off the pain.
Someone will read this after I post it on FB and comment about my writing or maybe even Stephan.
They will relate to the situation or if not it will open their eyes.
We can be grateful for more than we know these days.
Most times we are not.
Folk used to say I had beautiful legs.
Not dancer's legs by any means, but short lil stubby "thick" legs as Roberto calls them.
I am blessed for that.
I made some man happy one day in my Life to be able to view my legs and hips.
Even tho they hurt right now I can trust GOD will hear my plea and heal me.
That IS what HE does!
In the meantime maybe I can get my Love to massage me.
On a day like today (its raining) I would love that treat!
So no matter what, stay positive folks.
Its the better choice.
Be well.

Several posts

There are several posts for October 1st..
I'm so far behind....

Happy Birthday Nonnie!

It's my Mother-In -Law's birthday.
Yes, I said it.
My "then" husband's mamma.

She is one of my favorite people.
She was (is) married to my late Father in law, Norman.
Just like my (another) Daddy that Norman!...a very wonderful man.

Today she is a year older than last year and we are still late with the birthday cards
but I love her...we all love her..she's NONNIE!

So for every raindrop that fell today Nonnie, is another well wish to you.
We got over 3 inches... I do believe.

Love you Non.

October 1st

Hey ya'll,
Sorry to have so long getting back to the blogspot.
Lots has been going on at my ranch.
But nothing God can't take care of...

I have several topics to cover.
Green Day for Wanda, CAP Homeworkin', Jesus is Waching you, and Rain.
That's just for starters.

The rain is intense here today.
The droplets are full and silvery.
I told my partner, each time the rain hits him, know its a kiss from me this morning.
He stayed in at work all day.
Oh well.

I got lots done today.
I was surfing thru the clouds, soaking up the grey skies.
Today reminds me of a Jimi Hendrix day!
Listening to his tunes just fits so nicely with the day.
The Wind Cries Mary huh?
Or Earth Blues?
Two Ships...?
Kinda romantic this weather we're having.

But I digress.
Hmmmm. That would be the Prez's saying...
How is the President 2040 doing?

So anywho.

I'm doing homework last night with Tyler.
Ked bails out at the constant sound of the short vowel A.
I pick up where she left off and she makes hamburgers for us all.
Words ending in "ap".
Cap Nap Slap.
Yup, in that order.
By the time we was done we was all knocked out.
Bathtime. Bedtime.

Wanda has all green on.
Some great shades melted in to some pearly silky materials.
She a warm shade of chocolate brown with gorgeous skin and a wonderful smile that greets you with love.
She's bubbly and wise.
I wanted to just touch her all over but I thought that might have been inappropriate, at work... Hehhehe.
Wanda has a way of transmitting joy thruout the room no matter what color she has on.
She has become a treasured staple to my friendship pantry.
Nice to know Wanda.

Now to discuss Jesus and Him watching us...
Never, I repeat, never, loose your religion.
(As my Daddy would say)
I'll tell you why tomorrow.
Have a good night and know you are loved.

Today I was so surprised to see my youngest son appear in The Lobby at work.
It was such a pleasure .
I am so proud of him.

I am proud of all my children.

GOD gives us such beauty in them all.

I can't even write for the tears today.
Thank you GOD for all I have especially when it comes to family!

Every little morsel.

Nourishment for today?

LOVE YOUR FAMILY. ..and don't forget your friends.

I am so blessed to be loved.

Have a great weekend.

Down and Dirty

Lately, maybe for the last few months, my road has been travelled hard.
It seems the journey I have taken might have been taken on unchartered soil.
The road was somewhat bumpy and dark.
The curves in the road came up on me too quickly; causing me to swerve and hit a pothole nearly causing me a blowout in Life.
But I am fortunate to have BIG Angels looking after me.
Folks keeping me in prayer, lifting me up, encouraging me.

I blogged about Success the other day.
I thought about POSITIVITY.
How it is important to stay positive in this Life.

In the midst of my tears I asked GOD for direction, for clarity.
He is always so Immediate in my trials.
He always brings something or someone to me for Comfort.

My daughter was in such need the other day.
Nothing, seemed to be in any kind of order for her.
I longed for the same Peace God has shown me to shine her way.
In my most humorous voice I said to her,

"It might smell like sh*t, but it is only brown dirt."

Her eyes took to the sky and her mind wandered.
She came back to me with the following:
Dirt and soil are different.
The brown dirt could really be the fertilizer one creates.
Compost is made by adding garbage together to get some of the most purest soils.
Good soil makes things grow with fullness.
This brown dirt just might be what one needs to bring the calm and settle the fears.
(Hence, thinking you might have steeped in doo~doo)

Stand strong, be positive and remember,
The dirt you stand in today may be the soil in the garden you pick from, tomorrow.

Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.
~Henry Thoreau
What a statement Mr. Thoreau has made!
When you are doing what is in order and in line it seems the rest will fall in place.
No matter what you are applying it to it seems to be true.
Whether you are reaching out and trusting God Almighty, listening to the words of the
Dalai Lama, or applying the Secret or the Law of Attraction, you gotta' be busy and not just on the sidelines nodding.
If yours dreams are in motion and you are striving for your goal you are too busy to be negative and therefore only positivity will come into play.
Just like love...
As long as you are striving to do for your loved ones and not centered around yourself, only good will appear out of any situation given.
Remember all the times you "gave" of yourself and felt no strain in doing so?
It was the giving approach, the reaching out from the bottom of your heart that made you feel so good.
So when it was your turn to be down, ( yes we have struggles and trials) WHOA! Here comes God (in my case) to deliver you.
There He is as your Provider, your Teacher, your Healer...
He sends the most unlikely things before your Path, reminding you He is is control.
Giving you the richest Comfort, direction , peace , clarity and wisdom...All in one Divine hug.
He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

My prayer today is that I will be still enough to receive God's blessings for me so that I may be successful in His works.
May you also enjoy the Promises of God; The success of your journey.
I pray this in Jesus' Name... because I can.

I had a great morning and got lots of work done so far today.
The new position gives me a lot to look forward to.

I am late on this entry.
Sorry if any of you are daily readers and have checked the site earlier today only to find a blank canvas.

On my way in this morning I had the pleasure of catching my morning radio show.
Yolanda Adams preaches her Points iof Power and they are always on point!
It is times like this that I really need to keep the Word in my heart.
Most of my spare time is spent praying for many friends and a numerous amount of sicker folks altho I claim them healed, healthy and whole some have not made that manifestation in their Journey yet.
I am sure it is to come; My prayers are good.

This morning was particularly important to me.
She spoke from Matthew chapter 5.
The Beautides I do beleive.
The message was quite powerful but still most soothing for me.
It spoke about how we are so blessed even when we are struggling and have adversity.
You see, it is in those times that we reach the farthest.
Those are the times we wake up and get rid of the outside interferences and settle down to face Self.
Do that Internal Audit thing I was talking about in the last post.
Checking in with the Higher Power and letting it take care of whatever is needed to be fixed.
Its hard to do that sometimes.
We feel the need to or think we can do it ourselves, but we can not.
This is when we go deepest into the center of it all.
Adversity can make one become most patient.
Struggle can be blessings.
Because once you make it thru the trials of today, the next event will be easier.
Your strength increased and your Faith new and improved.
Enjoy the day and do realx and let GO and let GOD.

Lunch Talk

I have just returned from the New Leaf Cafe at work.
I was not certain what I felt like consuming today but I knew it had to be healthy.
With the regimine I am on now I need to check all four corners of my map so to speak.
What good is a healthy meal if you go to sleep on it.
So now that I am mastering crunches and walking...yup walking again!...
I need to eat properly.
I want to be able to not take insulin any more.
That is probably a little farther off than I know but I can dream, right?
So I am in the line and I hear folks counting carbs and checking out the grilled chicken vs the salmon.
I am not really a fish lover.
But I overheard one coworker say "moderation."
I started to think.
For those of you who know me, I am a thinker.
(Sometimes a good thing, sometimes bad.)
But, I digress.
So now I have a new course, main course, hehe that was a funny folks! to add to my list.
Stay healthy.
The Christian Heir

January28th 2010

I posted a great piece from Rick Warren on January 28th 2010.
Please go back to that day and review that post as I can not copy and paste for some reason.
It is more than encouraging!

Time for my lunch!
Gonna eat something real healthy today.
I've lost 7 lbs!
Got to keep up the good work!

Yesterday today and forever

Yesterday's post was lost.

But that was yesterday.
and that was a simple posting.

Today is now.
Enjoy it.

See you tomorrow.

Where I like to be

Today I woke up wondering if I opened my eyes and blinked them three times if I could be somewhere other than under my down comforter.
I blinked three times and all I got was dizzy.
Even thru the soothing hot shower I still was pondering why I had that thought.
Why would I need to be somewhere else?
Now I was thinking; Why would I want to be any where else?

Here, all the sudden was fine.
Here, if I was to be real, was GREAT!

No where else could I have the things that are taking place in my Life as they are today.
Somewhere else would be totally new and uncharted.
I would have new problems and new folks who I'd have to get to know and love and that takes time...
I wouldn't be able to go to my favorite place without coming back to here, hehe...
I wouldn't do the things that make me happiest here and now.
I would be taking a risk that this new place could offer me good music and great food.
I would leave behind my' money yippee! and I would be taking the easy way out. Out of this Internal Audit.
Going somewhere else would not give me time to check myself here and where I stand now.

I have made several mistakes in my past before.
I have made mistakes in this Journey ~we all have.
But this time the mistake I seem to have made is not clear to me.
So it is imperitive I stay on this ground where I am and find the treasure I am seeking.
It is important to find Peace and Understanding.
It is my place and duty to not let Satan or anyone else rob me of my joy.
It is my job to figure out what needs to be fixed.
All things are possible to those who wait on the Lord.
(That's a combination quote from two great folks who have come into my Journey/Life.)
So I guess I will stay in the place I am.
In my heart, in my Spirit and my soul and just redecorate.
Clean house so to speak.
Get rid of the excess.
Keep the good.
Polish up those stored treasures.
Release those emotions that hurt me, hold me back and keep me from going forward.
Trust God.
Weep if I need to.
Cause I won't let the devil think its cause he has me down.
I haven't forgotten my title...
The Christian Heir.
I have Promises that need to be kept.
And since God is a Faithful God, I trust His decisions.
His decision to answer my prayers.
To lend me His Promises.
My answer my questions, my concerns.
Fix me, Dear God so I can be a great testiment of Your Love.

Have a great day folks and stay where you are...
Just make sure your place is in order.

Still crazy after all these years

I haven't given up the blog.
I am just probably, lazy.
I was recently scared into the gym again, oh well.
My sugars need to be stable and my gut needs to be shrunken.
My support calls it the shrunken treasure.
I suppose that is funny?
After a few sit ups and crunches, maybe.
Spring will be here in 19 days.
I can't wait.
So I guess all this hype for the gym is a good thing.
I got a question for ya'...
Do you "back up" when your friend is down and in need or do you "come forth" with help?
Enjoy this day,

Inspiration from New Life Church

Today's Word

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. ~Prov. 4:23 (One modern translation puts it this way)......Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.....

Today's Thought

The title on your business card may prompt people to lend you their hands, but only your moral authority will inspire them to give you their hearts.

Moral authority is established when it becomes clear to all that progress, financial reward and recognition are not your gods; that you value something more, something you refuse to sacrifice on the altar of profit or popularity.

With moral authority comes influence. You can manage people without moral authority but you can't influence them.

Wake up! Talking one way and living another "wounds" you, and depending on time and circumstance, you may or may not recover from it.

You can tell yourself that how you conduct your private life is nobody's business, but if there's a perceived difference between what you demand of others and what you do yourself, it'll erode people's respect for you. While your position may make you secure, your influence and moral authority will always remain fragile. At any given time you're only one decision, one word, one reaction away from destroying what took years to build.

There can be no high civility without a deep morality. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Why is it important to know this?" you ask. Because the fastest route from where you are today to where you'd like to be tomorrow, isn't always the most honorable one. Leading, and being the person you want to be, don't always line up. It's in those moments, however that you discover a great deal about yourself - you find out what you value most!

Today's Prayer

Father In Heaven; I don't want to "Just" lead my family or those around me I want to "Influence" them for You and Your kingdom. I am determined to become a Moral Person, a person of Integrity. I know I need Your help to become this. So touch my life, my heart, my mind with Your Power & Presence. In Jesus Name. ~Amen.

new inventions

I am gonna be rich.
Last night I yell to my grandson, who is so comfortably propped up on the day bed watching TV, eating chips and laughing heartily.
"Eric" , I say, why is there garbage in the bathroom?
Well, how stupid a question was that Grandma Mimi?
Having been the Christian Heir for some time now, my patience as well as my knowledge of all things should be impeccable.
As I rambled on about the garbage needing to be emptied by him daily the lilt in my voice disappeared and the by the time I was done the voice had gone down at least one octave.
This morning I woke up and proceeded on my way into the bathroom I noticed the trash was overflowed.
4 pm EST.
Eric,why is there garbage in the bathroom?
It is your job to empty the trash.
Did you think I was just randomly mentioning some FUN FACTS to you when I TOLD you the trash was full last night?
"YEAH", he replies.
Excuse me?
****The correct answer here was, "Yes, Mimi".******
I have the rights to a new product now.
You may download this application at a mere introductory low price of $29.99.
It will snatch the living doo doo ( check yesterdays blog) out of anyone you wish.
Grabs their azz straight thru the cellphone.
One minor technicality; it may slow down your scroll.

I do

Today folks I do.
Yes, I spent my lunch hour redeeming my Spa coupon from my support. I did me.
I enjoyed a wonderful massage and then rested my bones in the massage chair for the remaining 15 mins.

Yesterday almost had me frazzled enough that I needed to redeem my coupon.
But thanks to my many musicians I was able to maintain our gig each Wed night!
It was a very successful night...
I do say.

I have to say I do more now than I have in a long time.
From managing music to working a 9-5, to continuing classes to learn to sign to wanting to spend Saturdays swimming, or trying to at least...
I do.
I do alot.
I am glad I do.
Because for years I didn't.
I never took the time for me to really reach down deep inside of me and enjoy and savor the real insides of my Life.
I do a Journey now.

I do love, me.
So I do take this woman to be my best friend and heir of Christ, to have and to hold
