A wake up call for me thats for sure ..

Saturday, December 26, 2020

Merry Christmas yesterday .. Happy Boxing Day today .. as well as bring on 2021 with the New Year Dear Lord .. may each day of the new year bring bring peace .. restoration and a renewed value for truth and life.

The month of Dec in my world was full .. I was zooming and productive until I missed a small 6 inch step and injured my right ankle .. that was the 9th ..
my goal of having my moms house empty and cleaned .. on the market for sale was now impossible

good thing I had done some baking .. and a very small amount of shopping ahead of time .. because screech .. my plans were changed

during this time I was taught some very valuable lessons in patience ..
then on the 17th my girlfriend passed away ..
at home after watching a movie with her hubby .. he set off for bed .. she said I'll be there in a few minutes .. just going to finish this game on my phone ..
no more than a minute later he heard an odd noice ..
My girlfriend had gotten her wings ..
just like that ..
heaven bound ..
after baking for a week .. planning gift packages to be delivered to friends and family .. ( no company allowed in our homes here under present restrictions ) .. she up and left
36 years of friendship .. adventures in the kitchen .. in life .. camping .. traveling to foreign lands .. my rock .. the kind of friend that tells you like it is .. honest .. real .. true .. fun.. reliable .. zip .. and gone

my heart aches for her family .. her friends .. for me ..

my message to all of you my dear Spark friends ..
and to me .. God knows I need a reminder too

please don't take life for granted ..
starting today ..
stay in God's time ..
stay now ..
stay present ..
unwrap each minute as if it were your last ..
smile often
laugh even more
nourish and exercise your precious body as if it were the most valuable possession you have ..
because it is !!
this vehicle we call the body deserves our utmost love and care ..

eyes to the heavens I ask that we are all guided to be .. be in tune with God's plan .. in His perfect timing .. be guided to take the very best care of us that we can .. He expects that .. He deserves that ..
if we do what we can He will do what we can not ..

I challenge all of you to step in to being committed to our well being with me .. to promise ourselves health .. great health .. agility .. movement .. laughter .. adventures great and small .. to really SEE .. to FEEL .. to BE
all that HE intended us to BE ..

to be at peace .. live in joy .. and fear not ..
giving away all our troubles to HIM .. our guides and angels

we are beacons of His light .. a warrior for all that is good ..

sending you love always ..

xo

    My deepest sympathy. This last year has taught me that life is too
    precious to wish away one single day because we never know if we
    will have another.

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your good friend! So sudden, without warning...I cannot imagine! Life is so unpredictable and while we accept death as a part of life, it always seems so different (unfair) when it happens to someone close to us. My heart goes out to you and to her family...

    So sorry. Two years ago I lost a very close friend and I know how it is to miss someone like that. Prayer that your injury will heal soon and I agree that our bodies deserve our full respect and attention. emoticon
