Mindful meditation, such as on the things of God, actually calms your brain.

After meditating, excite your brain with walking prayers - no minimum speed.

Micah6.8 - do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with your God.

Millions of us use the Revised Common Lectionary readings each week:

//lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu

There are daily readings that complement the weekly readings:

please note that M-W readings look back at last Sunday's texts, Th-Sa look ahead to the next Sunday's texts.

My Goals:
Meeting new people, encouraging others, walk @least 5 miles a week, lose 59 pounds by Mar2015, find a healthy church of disciples of Jesus and function like the family we are. Simple, eh?


My Program:
Team challenges, daily sparking, co-op w/ VA doctors, simplify my life, practical help to neighbors I meet in this life. Listen to bible audio at bedtime helps too!



Personal Information:
I love to cook and bake, but I live for BBQ. Hahaha it ain't BBQ if it ain't smoked ;-)

I fingerpick guitar, since 1973 (hero:Chet Atkins, bb king). Play piano (fav: ragtime, Edvard Grieg). Blow coronet & trombone (fav: wynton marsalis, chuck mangione) and still enjoy Earth,Wind and Fire; Pink Floyd; Stevie Ray Vaughn -- incl' Mary had a little lamb.
I also really dig Stephen Curtis Chapman, Chuck Girard and Love Song, Larry Norman, and of course Keith Green


Other Information:
"When life gives you a bunch of lemons, make orange juice and leave them wondering" -- Instagram fm my niece.

I am a broken caregiver of my disabled wife; since my stroke/drain bamage [you can smile at that, ironic THe Wink] in Dec'08.

Who says God has no sense of humor? He made me, didn't he?

    Just thought I would stop by..

    How are you? Taking good care of your health?

    I just made myself a mocha! I went shopping today with friends to Hobby Lobby. My back hurt like heck. My face was all sweaty underneath my mask. I needed a cool drink. They bought 2 buggies of craft supplies. I bought a bottle of essential oil and that was it! I need a mocha to rejuvenate me! emoticon

    Have a wonderful rest of your Friday! TGIF

    Go to Youtube and listen to an interview my doctor gave at an anti-ageing conference. I've lost 50# seen seeing him 3 yrs ago. I'm 70.

    AGE MANAGEMENT MEDICINE - WARD DEAN M.D.

    Another great web site is John Thomas at www.youngagainclub.com

    I found his book at a thrift shop, but it is in its 6th edition after 25 yrs. He's 75 and began studying ageing when he was in his 30s.

    The Special needs sign was beside a handicap only sign in a church parking lot. I can't write church on there because it might offend someone. I thought it was cool.
