THOUGHT FOR TODAY
To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent - that is to triumph over old age.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich
They say you should take 10,000 steps a day to keep your heart healthy. Sad to say that even on my best days it’s hard to count 5,000 here. I have one of those little devices that counts steps and counted them out for awhile. I can only say I’m very thankful I still have stairs to climb everyday. At least they give me more exercise that I’d get without them.
When it comes to matters of the heart, stress makes a big difference too and I can say in that respect I don’t have to worry. Living life in the slow lane leaves little room for stress. I’m too blessed to be stressed.
We’re to be in the lower 70’s here today and then we’re to be in the lower to mid 60’s for as far as I can see in the forecast for the days ahead. Knowing that the nights will be much cooler, I may just have to turn the heat on. One day air conditioning, the next day the furnace. I’m so not ready for that yet.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
The heart that loves is always young.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3172. for a heart full of love, the best way to lead an excellent lifestyle
3173. for lights, they do brighten a dark gloomy old day
3174. for pancakes and eggs, on the menu for breakfast
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
86 Days Until Christmas
It’s time to visit your local farm stand or grocery store for the perfect pumpkin to decorate your porch. While you are at it, pick out a nice sugar pumpkin. Fresh pumpkin puree is heavenly and can be used to make such delightful edibles such as soup, bread, muffins, cheesecake, pie, cake, fudge, and so much more! I’ve already got one sitting here on my kitchen counter just waiting to be cooked up. They say the best way is cut them in half, clean out the innards and bake them in the oven. I’ll be trying it out soon and will save the seeds to roast too.
