The Weekly Word
As we spent this weekend honoring our veterans, I would simply like to remind myself and, you, my precious readers, of these beautiful songs that surely fill our hearts with patriotic joy when we sing them.
Enjoy them and remember to thank a veteran every day, not just on Veterans' Day.
My Reading Life
To Do Tuesday
There are times when we are broken, utterly and completely broken. Those are the times when, if we turn to God, we give Him the opportunity to achieve His greatest healing and work in our lives. Sometimes we are so shattered, all we can pray is, “Help me!” That’s all it takes for our loving Abba Father to come to our aid!
Mine is following the Stove Top stuffing recipe and adding tons of sautéed celery, carrots and a bit of onion. I use olive oil to sauté the veggies and, if I have it on hand, homemade chicken broth.
Our menu is pretty traditional albeit we have now added carne de puerco con chili colorado (pork and red chili). This tradition was introduced to us by my much-loved son-in-law.
I really liked this post by Toby Mac.
Our local library now has hoopla and I'm in love, totally and completely in love! Their selection is fabulous, and features are top notch!
Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer
Thankfully, it’s a quiet life on the health front. I’m staying the course with my knee exercises. According to my surgeon, this will be a new life-long habit.
I’m also working on strengthening my core by sitting on the sofa, leaning back, but not quite touching the back, raising my legs and pedaling. Yup, it’s challenging, but effective.
I believe I’ve had a handicap parking placard shortly after treatment for Triple Negative Cancer. The other day, we were lucky to find a parking at an extremely crowded venue. I said, “Thank you, Cancer, for this parking.”
Perhaps it’s time to look for the gifts cancer gave me, instead of the negative effects chemotherapy had on my health! 😊I hope you have a great week!
