July 1, 2009

Painted my office (at least most of it) yesterday. Its more of a wreck than normal but getting better.

Trying to continue on with routine changes this week. Its hard. Even little things, and I mean little things, are not easy to do differently. Makes me wonder what God has in mind if he can get me to the point of listening to him better.

June 30, 2009

A friend just commented about being old this morning. That comment coming after a 60 + mile bike ride up the mountain to Beersheba Springs and back.

That made me think though. Old is a mindset (I believe). I know a lot of "old" people who are very young. I buried a 95 year old young person last year.

I also know some 40 somethings who are ancient and waiting to die.

I want to live, and run, and jump, and climb trees as long as I am able, and when I can't physically do that anymore, I plan to dream about it.

June 29, 2009

Long day so far today. I think I'm brain dead.

I remind myself about how God seems to have a way to pick me up when I'm low. Too often I seem to forget how God has a way of working miracles that would go unnoticed if I didn't give my attention to him.

Can't find the original poster that I wanted but this one is good too.
Slow down today and "think" about what God might be speaking to you. You might need to sit and think. And you might just need to sit.

A treehouse without a tree

Can't make concrete without handprints

Happy Girls makes for a happy day

June 27, 2009

Speaking of changing routines, I took the entire day yesterday and went to my daughters to play with the grand kids and work on their playhouse (which is what I call a tree house without a tree). I'll try to remember to post a picture later.

I spent the entire day playing with the girls - and Kevin the only grandson -

No computer, no work related issues, just the girls and Kevin. It is a very hard thing for me to step out of the order of my usual day. But if we are to encounter new things, have new experiences or otherwise turn our mind somewhere other than the norm, we need to at least sometimes change the order of our "normal".
