I found my self, soul and spirit in a fallen position after what I diagnosed as possible food poisoning. I woke up with a terrible back and headache and chills beyond my imagination. I am using this post as a journal piece about how I had become frightened and unfocused as I lie in bed waiting on the healing I had asked for in prayer. I am not able to describe this situation except to say I felt like I was falling from the Washington Monument. This is my photo word of comfort to those who are praying for relief.
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.
As I toured one of the museums in Washington I looked up and saw the plane and the passenger hanging over the edge. I made an analogy of the political landscape and the air of misrepresentation I see as passengers overlooking and surveying a land and a day with so many cloudy skies and dark storms brewing. I have to mention how my self, soul and spirit is affected when we see such pain and multiple acts of hatred. The presentation of peace and joy along with self-control is why my eyes are on the sky.
When I close my eyes, I imagine all of my most sunny skies. This is how I make it through some of the nights like tonight. Life turning experiences come so quickly and so then I just visualize the sun coming up again. I choose to take this concept of taking one day at a time to the highest level as I see the sun shining through the trees and take the time to say thank God for all the days when dark clouds are overcome by a sunny atmosphere memory. This action brings a smile!
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.
