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.
Life conversations in the area of care-giving is a collage of experiences and events that shape our beginning and our end. In the game of “Hello” the first direction is to listen. I am convinced that this is the direction that families are the most resistant to follow. I read the definition of collage as pictures that are placed together to express a point or give clarity in questions and answers. I have these items in plain view as I deal with living and dying well. I read and write conversations to help me move forward
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.”
We need words of encouragement and the best source for me is to open my bible. I was awakened by the sounds of fireworks. I had just taken a two hour nap, so I thought I would study a Bible verse for my 100 word journal entry before going to bed. The third Epistle of John is my July focus of joy praying. I am dashing through the time given to live well, as well as wishing to have my soul prosper. The dates before and after the dash are my opportunities to be in good health.
