My life as a poem

In my favorite place
enjoying the sun streaming in,
a light breeze,
a good book,
hearing wind chimes softly ringing
birds sing in the distance.

Rough Road Ahead?

I opened the living room curtain the other day and saw this sign in the road in front of my house. You can see they are doing much needed roadwork on my street, but I kept thinking, "Isn't this true of life?" I must say that right now living in Florida with beautiful weather(temps in the 70-80s) DSH and I are really blessed. We have very few wants or needs that we are able to get without much hardship. I think of the people still recovering from hurricane Sandy, the families in CT still mourning, and the many who are suffering illness, and I see how blessed we are to not be among them.

It is a New Year with resolutions hoping to make it a better year. With me it is always my weight. I see this sign as a reminder that it is not going to be easy, but I must take that road to better eating habits if I am going to lose the extra pounds that I carry.

Also as a Christian waiting for Jesus to return I know sometimes there will rough road ahead. 1Cor 16:13 says "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong."

But right now, I am going to enjoy the lovely day, go to the pool to exercise, clean up  my stamp room, read, maybe go out to eat at one of our favorite restaurants.

"This is the day the Lord has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24
