last night the sermon at church was on...mercy, forgivness and grace...
in the last few days I'd read the following over at Janet's blog ...
God always has perfect timing--speaking to my heart and what I need to be reminded of...
He's good like that. :)
The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

Today is Thursday...
(what do you mean by day one, cheri???)
well I've been walking, still
but my eating
the last three days
not so good...
so today is day one
so day one it is...
it is also grass cutting day
(i love cutting the grass!)
it is also pool playing day
and sun soaking day...
and going to the farm day
so my daddy can sight in his riffle...
(although we may not do the farm, if we stay and make like fishes in the pool)
today also will hold some picture taking
I want to deliberately take pics...i've gotten woefully out of the habit when I was without a camera...
and it's crochet day
I haven't crocheted in a couple of months
and I have several unfinished objects that NEED TO BE DONE
and I want them to be done...
I need to seem something completed. :)
So basically, you know how people always ''restart'' on Monday? They lay out goals and plans and MONDAY is the day...
Well today is Thursday...Thursday is the new Monday! :)
Here's to day one! :)
