|Me and my hubby|
I did read:
"Misplacing God (and finding Him again)" by Joanne Heim from "The Simple Wife"
I really enjoyed this book and want to read again to continue to challenge myself with keeping God first in everything I do. Our busy lives can really misplace God. Joanne includes great scripture references.
Written a few years ago, Joanne shares with us her struggles with making God a priority in her life. Not only does she share, she challenges readers to "find a purpose, place, practice, prayer, perseverance, and passion for the One who makes our lives complete."
(I was not ask to promote this book or any other. Please forgive me if not writing much as my memory is not the greatest hence the read, re-read.)
I have started to read:
"Radical" by David Platt
And wow! He sure makes me think long and hard about life and what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. I'll have to get back with you all as I just started reading.
Therapy, for the most part, has been great and working on getting my balance along with using my hand more. I have been able to do a few steps on the stairs, one foot on each step, and will continue each time to work on that process. Today I stood more on my right leg, to place pressure and work at moving my left foot in the process. This also helps the brain by doing more than one thing at a time. I also was lifting a bar, 6 lbs, to stretch my right arm and in the process decreasing the extra tone (tightened muscles). Having my family with me has been a blast.
As far as cleaning up the two areas of living room I wanted straightened, most of it was done but still have a few more papers to deal with and will be done. We went through a few boxes and packed up some of my daughter's toys.
Her dentist appointments went super and she did not have any issues, Praise the Lord! My blood work came back and my cholesterol is good, triglycerides were good, no issues with thyroid or B vitamin levels. However, need to work on my blood sugar, while it is not high while fasting (90) the average (3 or 6 month) was 140ish so over the next 6 months need to work on diet. Too much carbs :(
One thought that has stuck with me, Had God not allowed my stroke I would not have learned the lessons I have. Praise God! Tomorrow I will share more about this journey.
