My brain is not bored.
Not ever these days.
There is so much trying to work itself out up there.
For example: Yesterday I was pretty much minding my own
business and working away on candles when a thought popped into
"You should check on Georgia and see if she needs help."
She was driving herself on errands yesterday for the first time
since breaking her leg in July.
I called her phone.
While I was leaving a message she called me back.
I asked if she needed help carrying groceries up the steps.
Absolutely, she did!
Her leg was hurting after physical therapy and several
stops on the way home and she was just wondering
how she was going to get her packages up the stairs which
she has just started using again.
It had to be God.
In His perfect timing.
That incident fit so perfectly with something I heard on the
radio today that I think I am supposed to pay attention.
This is my paraphrase of what a pastor said....
"Some people follow Jesus with their lives
while others invite Him to follow them in their lives."
I really want to be in the first category.
I want, so much, to hear His whispers...
and more than that....
and more than that....
to act on them.
To follow His perfect plan for me each day.
That's one lesson.
Probably the most important.
I'm also learning about the iphone 4s.
I took all of these photos with it.
I'm learning how to get the pictures from the camera to the
editor and then to the blog.
I'm also learning to listen to my favorite radio station
on my phone.
WTLR is the radio station that my Dad managed for
many, many years.
Now I can live stream it any time I want.
Oh, and that is where I heard that thought on following this morning.
I'm learning to know some very smart and talented people.
Amy, the owner of the shop who sponsored me
in the Strasburg Autumn Fest this past weekend
is the kind of person that you just gravitate to.
She is seriously talented in refinishing furniture,
home decor and marketing.
I'm learning more about labeling and my label software.
I thought these turned out pretty cute.
So did my soap maker.
I'm learning that there are people in the world that just have a passion
for other people.
Luisa is one of those people.
Her passion is for the people in her home country of Peru.
She goes back each year with a team
and shares the gospel and Jesus love with as many people
as she can.
Mom and Georgia went with her a couple of years ago and
will be going again early next year.
Luisa works a full time job to support herself
and then also works most weekends at shows, farmer's markets
and anywhere else she can sell items made by the people of Peru
to help them and
to fund her return visits.
Just look at the detailing and consistency of the work here.
So, I'm learning much.
And tomorrow I get to go back to a class that I'm
enjoying immensely on eating for nutrition.
I've felt so much better and have cut my headaches
at least in half by making some basic changes.
God has been good to me.
Oh, and if you get a chance you could pop by
and see my friend Buttercup's awesome blog post
about my candles.
I especially love that she featured the Tommy candles.
Much better these days after having a feeding tube put in.
But if you wouldn't mind praying for him as he has been
pretty stressed through all of the ordeal of
stomach pain and time in the hospital.
One of these days I may get back to writing every day.....
or I may not.
But either way
I'm happy to be here now.
