I have been searching for balance in my life…without giving up the things I enjoy doing. I do not think I am alone…
Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance.
The more I search for balance the more it seems my calendar is filling up with record speed…learning to say no to the good things so I can say yes to the better things is something I have not been able to grasp. I just want to do it all…
Balance – to arrange or adjust to have equal distribution…
A balanced life must include the proper amount of rest… Without proper rest your body begins to rebel…the lack of rest causes undo stress and the natural reaction is to retreat.
Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.
Ephesians 5:15 “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise”
I’m sorry I haven’t stopped by or dropped a line lately…I recently changed my email notification setting to limit the amount of emails dropping in my inbox…about the same time something went awry with my my ability to see your posts under Reader “blogs I follow”…I have missed you! I have changed my email setting so that I get a notification when you post…see you on your next post!
The human foot and ankle is a strong and complex mechanical structure containing more than 26 bones, 33 joints (20 of which are actively articulated), and more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
These feet bear my weight and allow me movement. These feet served God by uniting with others so we could make a difference in one persons life. These feet allowed me to serve and that’s all that matters!
Thought for the Day: Be the hands and feet of Christ. Serve!
Scripture Verse: 1Peter 4:10 “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.”
Quote of the Day: “The purpose of life is not to be happy – but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all.” ~Leo Rosten
What’s up cupcake? It’s what’s for dinner…This is a sweet little bakery located in the Houston Heights.
Today we were celebrating my son’s 23rd birthday. After an incredible lunch we decided to visit the bakery. Our selection included root beer float, salted caramel, hummingbird, wedding cake, red velvet, vanilla bean, orange and blueberry…
In addition to their bakery they have a mobile cupcake truck…you can follow them on Twitter and track them down whenever you need a cupcake fix…
On a side note…These little glass domes and pedestals give the cupcakes the special attention each one deserves.
I purchased two chairs on the last day of an Estate Sale…The minute I saw them I knew what I would do with them.
Then I hit a snag…finding the time to do a seemingly simple project.
My biggest dilemma was whether or not to paint the chairs…painting a chair is not as easy as it sounds…there are nooks, crannies, spindles and carved legs to deal with…and truth be told my attention span is more suited to painting a box.
This morning I made the decision to move forward with the project…no paint, just recover the seat cushions.
Here it is an hour later and the project is finished and I am drafting my blog and ready to link up to Miss Mustard Seeds Furniture Friday Blog…
I am really happy that I did not paint the chairs…they look great with the original finish and the certified organic burlap coffee bag seat cover. New dilemma…keep them or take them to shop?
Today’s photo prompt is BIG! This is a really BIG building being moved from where it was built to its new home site, less than a 1/4 mile…It took about 24 hours using remote controlled transports.
