Saturday was one of those best and blessed days. I woke excited that I was talking and working at our 28th Annual Missionary Conference. I had asked some dynamic speakers to serve with me and offer resources and revitalization strategies. I prayed thanking God for an awesome opportunity and the connection to give a hand in my church and community. I was blessed to receive a plaque and I wanted to share it with this banner. I will continue to offer my hand as I grow in grace and love by talking, working, , studying, and giving for the best outcome..
We are in a “Fall Up” position. I received the news that the Better Care Act has fallen out. This is a blue Sky and puffy clouds day as I remember getting this admit to the Senate Gallery for the One hundred Fifteen Congress. I have been talking to the staff of the Senators and even had face to fact contact with my Congressman. I sent emails, tweets, and facebook posts along with many calls to their office. We must not let our constituent fire burn down as the Legislators work to destroy the way to quality health care opportunities.
Since I am still using my photographs from my Washington visit to the Legislators and working hard to intertwine my 100 word journal entries to the blog, I smiled when I saw the word, “Jangle.” This fit well to the discourse of the land. I know this picture came from one of the Tennessee Senators. I took it while waiting to speak to the legislative staff. I see the many tools in the picture but I have not seen the legislators stopping the jangle (dispute) and just doing the Tennessee waltz to help all of their constituents.
#WWOW: Here I stand at a bridge scene where my family had their fourth of July celebration. It is a bridge that I do not expect to cross but I am enjoying their steps and decided to make it one of my one hundred word journal entries with a life application as I have a goal for 72 while I am in year 72. What can I say as I advocate for persons and their care-giving advocates that would be a fruit bearing blog? The answer is “we do not spend enough time taking care of our selves.”
Matthew 11:28 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
One thing I discovered is that retiring from my role as nurse in a corporate setting did not mean I would give up on my purpose. I have found a new joy and peace as a prayer warrior with some special people from connected churches. I am full of memories as I continue to enjoy the promised rest.
I am feeling inspired gratitude as I close this eventful day with a prayer and praise on my lips. I have the words, “courage and strength” in my view along with my big “W” for my writing inspiration. I have been following the health care situation today and I see the valuable work that my friends and mentors for advocacy of “quality while living” are doing every day. I know that we must stand up for those who do not have the resources they need. We must continue to advocate with tenacity. The “W” represents why we work for wellness.
