Vacationing Back To Health

Vacationing Back To Health


I think I need to take a vacation back to health...how bout you?  WHAT is going ON with this YEAR?  IT HAS BEEN THE PITS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  But now HEY...I'm still hoping and trusting it's going to turn around and get BETTER...We still have half a year to go...for it TO turn around for the better....bad part of that IS....the 2nd half is my least favorite half...because I don't like the holidays anymore...

I can remember when the kids were small...OR even when "I" was a young girl and I LOVED LOVED LOVED the fall and the big holiday celebrations with lots of family and hub bub and commotion and jabber...oh my. 
But families are different these days and the holidays...at least for me...have taken a turn for the worse...So I'm a spring and summer girl myself.   Valentine's Day is for TWO...Vacations are for TWO...July 4th in our house is for TWO...and TWO is my favorite number....

Now I absolutely adore my family...all of 'em...but oooooohhh my goodness...well let me just say..."Times have changed and years have passed...and it does absolutely no good...to cry over spilled milk...you just wipe up the mess when it happens and move on"...shall we pray

We have 2 birthday picnics this week....and I'm soooooo excited.  Nothing like a back porch picnic and a bonfire picnic and I'm going to get to oversee both in one week.....chicken salad/ham salad and homemade ice cream for one....and roasting hot dogs over an open fire under the moonlight for another....How blessed I am...............

But I'm just not feeling my perky self lately.  Too many major disturbances in one half year for meeeeeeee...I had a blast on that day ride Saturday...but I thought it was going to wipe me OUT.  We stopped back by 17th Street Grill for supper on Saturday and I was so tired I literally laid my head down on the table to rest a bit.  The geezer said "You're not going to doze off in HERE are you?"  I don't know why I WOULDN'T...I dozed in church last night...  :-0    So I know I'm needing to take better care of myself...get on a better diet...PRAY more with a good grip on my mustard seed....   :-/

Do you know that most of us in America today are overfed but still we're starving to death.  And from what I've read and studied...if we're constantly hungry it's because our bodies are starving nutritionally.  

Lots of sneaky additives are being put in our foods now days and those additives are killing us softly with their love....

MSG and Glutamate are in most all foods and they each cause us to crave more food.  MSG is so strong and works so strongly against MY body...that we can be out eating a meal in a restaurant and I'll tell the geezer..."There's MSG in this 'fish'" or whatever....and the next morning I just feel like I've been hit by a pickup truck....
Caffeine and aspartame in abundance...and I'm talking just daily over use...can kill brain cells.  Did you know that airplane pilots are not allowed to drink diet colas because of the affects of the artificial sweetener on their brain cells.....YUP....SOOOOOOOOOOO why is it ok for the REST of us to kill OUR brain cells...?   That's what "I" would like to know......

I read that 68% of the adults in the US are obese...I believe the percent is even higher than that...and now what is healthy about that...and who in the world would WANT to be obese?   It's like the MSG and the Glutamate and the caffeine and aspartame have already killed their brain cells...and they either don't REALIZE they're obese...or they just don't care.

A friend told me the other day that someone stopped by their home with a small child and the child walked over to her husband and polked him in the tummy and said "Is there a BABY in there?"  hahahahaha  Now why would a man want that...and my old geezer is the same way....And here I'm only about 15 pounds overweight and my fat is mainly in my cheeks..and I HATE that and I'm always trying to get it gone...but these old geezers...they just don't seem to care....AND they don't seem to care that that tummy could and probably will....take mega years off of their lives.....So I'm thinking..."Are all those unhealthy snacks REALLY WORTH 15 years of your life...?"  I don't think they're going to think so on their death beds.......ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!!!   They're going to be thinking...."HOW ABSOLUTELY STUPID....I was"  

Well I'm going nowhere with this blog today...So I'm going to just wrap it up and we'll try again tomorrow.....I am absolutely exhausted beyond measure.  Physically and emotionally and mentally....I'm so tired I'm tearing up at the drop of a hat these days and I just can't hardly maneuver right now....This deal with our son losing his home in the flood has just about done me in too.....But HE can't help it....he's so used to things going wrong in HIS life...it's just another day at camp to him...

Boy we had a great time at church last night...I wish you all could have been there.  It was our talent nite and I asked the congregation to all move up around the piano like they do on the Gaithers and I said "Let's just REALLY fellowship tonight...let's just sing some of your favorite songs and talk and tell stories at random and have a grand old time...nobody's 'in charge' we're just all gonna FELLOWSHIP like we would if we were in someone's home." So that's what we did and it was absolutely wonderful....About 3 people said to me later...."I hope we can do this from now on at Fellowship night"....I just told them when Bro Shawn opened the service...I said "You know...if we were at home fellowshipping with friends or family...we wouldn't be spread out like this so far apart we had to yell to talk so all could hear us....so why would we do it HERE on fellowship nite...so let's all just set around the piano and have a grand old time...."  We even had some sitting on the steps to the pulpit....it was absolutely wonderful.....So I hope if you live close...you'll join us for our next fellowship night on either July 7th or 14th...I'll let you know for sure...

And listen....I have 3 friends in desperate need of a place to rent....so if you live in Metropolis and know of a place....please message me on facebook.  Their date to be out of where they are is June 17th....

Peace and love from the canyon ...this has been a bird's eye view of the katydid and until next time...you are loved....
