Someone For You To Meet
So because I ate some little Chinese pinwheel-and-cream-cheese things on Saturday, my poor ol' head exploded on Sunday.
Even though I tried all my sinus-relief tricks which usually work fast, I still spent most of the day in bed watching old videos of Early Edition and trying not to meditate upon the unfairness of not being able to handle dry air and cream cheese together. &*^%$
But today, hooray! Gratefully, I feel 90% better. Whew.
So while I return to housework (you know how it goes--miss 1 day and spend 2 catching up), I'll send you here to meet Grandma Gatewood. I'd never heard of her before this morning, but wow. Already she's inspired me to stop being such a Lazy Maizy and return to walking. And more.
Via Kindle, I took a peek into the new book written about her and am intrigued and tempted to buy. (I've got leftover gift card dollars, after all.) If you have a Kindle, you, also, can click on the 'send a free sample' button (on the right of that page in my link) and see what I mean.
Always, people who find joy in faithfully doing what they were called to do, delight me. And even years after they leave us, their stories illustrate that there are other better and brighter ways to live, a less-traveled trail to follow, something we tend to forget in Today's distracting, hectic world.
“Every day is important for us because it is a day ordained by God. If we are bored with life there is something wrong with our concept of God and His involvement in our daily lives. Even the most dull and tedious days of our lives are ordained by God and ought to be used by us to glorify Him.”
