I have been struggling with some “residue” sickness in my throat since I was sick this winter. Actually, I’ve had some voice and throat issues since I got strep a few years back. The problem has really increased since I started speaking and teaching on the 3HGVS Show and for my YouTube videos. I’d literally “loose my voice” after speaking for 2 hours. It would be fine the next day. I really ignored it for the sake of continuing in ministry…But this quiet struggle is disturbing my inner shalom. 🙂
The following may be more than the reader wants to know, but whatever––it’s my blog. 🙂
Several of the Ladies of Teshuvah are blogging. I know of Dorothy, Ali and Michelle. 🙂 Any others? If you can, ladies, please share your link in the comments or somehow link our blogs! 🙂
A Lovely Momma and Daughter Day . . .
A full-on jog, my school and then my singing lesson. Bought Maggie’s plane ticket to join us for the Feasts at the coast next week. The sun shone in the morning with a yummy breakfast that Hadassah made.
During this 50th Jubilee year of mine, I’m making some course corrections in my life! Meaning, I’m replacing some old bad habits with new good ones that serve me better! I want to look beautiful at the pool this summer. So, now is the time to start controlling food better! Here’s my light dinner for tonight. 🙂 I find I sleep so much better with a light meal early in the evening and not right before bedtime. 🙂 And you?
A regular day. Lots to do. Talking with Papa, exercise, showers, laundry, dishes, walking the dogs, cooking, cleaning, studying, school …. Hebrews don’t have “weekends.” They have Shabbat and the 6 working days. So today was not a “Sunday”, but the 1st day of Yah’s work week. 🙂
I cook an entire week of food for Isaac on Sunday so that he has good food to eat all week long while trucking. He stops every once-in-a-while to get a burger or pizza somewhere, but I just wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I sent him out on the road for the week without NUTRITIOUS food for him to eat.
We had a GREAT Shabbat together as a family! I lifted my hands up to YHVH on top of the hill this morning and prayed for the day, my family and all of Israel! And the Ruach ha’Kodesh came and gave us a great day — despite the rain and cold.
My sister-in-law told me about this little place and since it was raining outside and too cold for a hike we decided to check it out. It was the most amazing little local organic bakery called the Grain Shed! How can you go wrong with barley brownies, spicy pesto avocado toast, Ruwanda coffee and ancient Purple Egyptian Barley artisan bread? All non-GMO, organic, local, homemade ingredients on EVERYTHING! And everything baked in a wood fired oven. WOW! We’ll be back! 🙂 It made the start to Shabbat great!
OMG! It worked. I returned calls from my RVM campaign this morning! OMG! Scariest thing I’ve done in a long time! I followed my instructors formula and at 9:05 am I began to get calls. I flipped out! I got calls throughout the morning of the ad. I had so many errands and things to do this Prep day that I didn’t get to calling people back until late afternoon. I knew I wasn’t going to see a soul, but just to help my courage I took a shower, got all dressed up and sat in my truck in the sunshine and called people back.
I studied today about the “4 Types of People” that I will be doing business with. I don’t like boxes but sometimes they help when doing business with people. Then you can know a little bit better on how to meet them where they are. Did you know that there are primarily four types of people? There are the analytical. Then there are the drivers. There are the social and then there are social conscious.
Today, exactly 1 month from my birthday (March 10) Carin (my sister-in-law) treated Hadassah and I out for a birthday dinner. She’s been waiting for me to get all better to treat me out. We had a lovely time catching up at a cute healthy restaurant downtown that she found. Squash lasagna, who knew?
Just one more thing about today….Hadassah and I bought cheese from Austraila. Made me think of Ali! 🙂
First day of the year and I got to spend it with some friends!
Ran into an old friend (Liz) in Costco. Her daughter, Denny and my Maggie were good friends in grade school. Both our girls are artists and dancers. Haven’t seen Liz since we were living in the tipi. She calls me a rolling stone that doesn’t grow moss! 🙂
Fun fact about Liz: she used to be a Rockette in Vegas. 🙂
Okay! So, this is what happens when you walk with Papa Yah and keep his calendar. Our plans are trumped by his Head of the Year witnesses (agricultural and astronomical).
We were not able to sight the New Moon either Friday night, Shabbat night or last night due to cloud cover. So, we just went with Michael Rood’s calendar that we had hanging on the wall––not thinking anything of it. But this morning, I finally got to work on the computer and checked emails. I saw that there was emails from Devorah’s Date Tree. After reading the fact that they did not sight the new moon in Israel and therefore it defaults to a 30-day month I jumped to Rood’s website and checked his posted calendar page. It took a while for Isaac and I to figure it out, but yep––TODAY is Rosh ha’Shanah, not yesterday. His printed calendar was wrong. His digital calendar online was updated. LOL! Oh well! That’s the way it goes. We do the best we can and join Papa as he smiles with us. I was staying off social media for a reason…..
