via Photo Challenge: Heritage My heritage of Education is my focus eight days before Celebration 72. I share that the formal education that I have pursued comes from my love of reading and writing. I still remember my first grade teacher at Magnolia School and her words about the importance of being educated. I was always drawn to teachers who shared their self, soul and spirit to help me achieve my education. I keep pictures from several of my College/ Universities graduations on my Vision Board. They range from 1972 AD, 1984 BSN and 1991 MS. They represent my love of life long learning. .
via Daily Prompt: Descend The best time to be reflective as I descend into the last days of being #71 with the hope of ascending the celebration of #72. I have nine days until the end of one and the beginning of the next year. I will start with my ascending to this point in ministry. I accepted my calling into the ministry of the gospel in 1997 by being blessed and licensed by the Pastor and officials of my church. I give God all the glory as I continue to ascend and descend. I believe that God has everything in His Hands
I used this picture as a prompt to write because I felt like I could since I am in the midst of birthday celebrations during this month. I learned a valuable lesson about the danger of crossing double lines. I am a fifty year driver with a new view of the road and when I think about it, this also goes with the fact that I am celebrating my twenty years of ministry experience. Today I send out a spiritual courtesy warning to watch the double lines we cross as well as the highways we travel.via Photo Challenge: Danger!
via Daily Prompt: Spike The goal of hope is learning to swing well from any kind of rope. I had this energy spike when I said I would write at least 3000 words by the end of this month. I had a few topics in mind that had come through prompts and every day life events and experiences. On the first day of the month, I learned how plans change as I prepared and because of fierce winds, we lost power. I was stuck with an energy spike and the hope for a chance to share my self, soul, and spirit.
via Daily Prompt:. Apprentice Most of us are willing to learn new things and travel paths that can be a benefit to others. We are the eager beavers and the slow turtles who spend time learning to do things our way. I am starting the first day of this month being full of nostalgic aspiration to write one hundred words. One dictionary definition is “teach. I move to applying availability to describe my vision and mission reset for my birth month teaching. I believe that people who have been close sometimes overlook the ability and availability of a willing apprentice.
via Daily Prompt: Fry This is a 05:00 post about how I sometimes find myself in a hot oil situation. I have a problem with all types of cooking because I do not get any joy relief from spending time in the culinary scene. I am looking at the option of frying fish on a Friday but it seems to be so much trouble when I can find a place to buy it. To buy or fry causes family anxiety but it goes with the territory. I am asking directions and looking for ways to get from the hot oil scene.
via Daily Prompt: Timely April has been a different kind of month. Some of you know that the push for awareness about National Healthcare Decisions Day is April 16 of each year. I felt this post would certainly be timely since I have participated been in four funerals these last two weeks. I know that making advanced care plans is a hard road to travel. I decided to apply it to the words I have listed on my vision board.
Lead yourself into dreams that bring you joy. Save your family from guessing about decisions that pertain to life and death.
