I am Thankful and Grateful

Recently, I had a thought session.  I was wondering if I could be disappointed, dissatisfied; yet thankful and grateful all at the same time.  And, my conclusive answer is, Yes.  This is how…

First, I am very thankful and grateful to Word/God for life, health, and strength; and the ability and power to do what I must.  At the same time, I recognize the current state and situation that I find myself (which constantly changes).  Sometimes, that leads to frustration, dissatisfaction and disappointment; but, I work hard at NOT murmuring– instead I focus more on being prayerful.

I find that prayer/meditation and supplication, with thanksgiving (as the Bible mentions in Philippians 4:6) takes me outside of my problem and situation and allows me the space to breathe and think; and, in that space, I find peace. 

I’ve learned that it is ok to feel and work through your feelings, work through them and still maintain an attitude of gratefulness and thanksgiving.  The process allows me to “Be angry; yet sin not” because in the end, I’m still thankful and grateful.  It’s good to know that I don’t need to be hypocritical or fake in my walk with the Word.  If you are still working things out in your walk of faith, I encourage you to keep pressing, keep believing; keep being thankful and grateful. Selah.

Do You Think It Matters When You Eat Fruit?

Spring time is coming.  Time to start shedding those winter pounds. 😏  If you’ve started adding more fruit to your diet and meals, you might have the same question I had.  Do you eat the fruit before, during, or after the meal?

I’ve heard a variety of things on the topic so, I put the question to Google.  (You can see  the link search below.)  Honestly, I think I agree more with my sister on this when she says she doesn’t think it matters.  But, there is a part of me that still thinks it depends Read More

Let’s Talk About Salt

The other day, I was sitting at the table and was trying to decide which salt to use;  Table Salt or Sea Salt.  My inner self quietly asked, “why do you need to add extra salt at all?”  And I replied:  Because I want it!! I love that taste and flavor!   So, I reached over and added a “little” of each. 😳  Yep, I did that.  Now, I’m writing about why–amongst other things.

I usually reach for the salt shaker because of habit.  In my younger years, when I exercised a lot, or did a lot of manual work, it wasn’t an issue because I got a chance to sweat a lot.  Which, I think that might be the case for many people.  But now, I have a need to create a new habit.  Paying more attention to what and how I eat.

I’ve actually been moving in that direction for quite a while …since my days in the military.  But, Read More

Medicare-for-All Is the Healthcare Answer and Access People Avoid Talking About…Until Now

Comments are closed.

I grabbed the link to this twitter post because it’s an interesting video.  To me, it demonstrated that even when people tried to have opposition to Medicare-For-All, it still turned out to be the best answer to solve many of the healthcare issues we have.

For sure, there is no ‘one answer that fixes everything’.  But, we have to start choosing a direction of best possibilities and Read More
