Sauna Time!

Spa Spokane invited me to enjoy her sauna today. Such a blessing as it snowed and was bitter cold again today ––– Spring seems to be nowhere in sight. Hadassah joined me and we dawned our summer attire pretending we were going to the beach. I really have no idea anymore why I make my family suffer in this neck of the woods anymore. That’s going to change.

Sweated out the toxins with a little help from some Frankincense, Breathe and Burgemont.

Absolutely amazing.

Going back tomorrow with Maggie. 🙂

Sleeping In

Part of my new rhythm I’m creating for my Sabbatical year is to stay in bed until 6am. For nearly 2 decades I get up to work on ministry things at what Isaac calls “stupid-thirty.” But not this Sabbatical year. I’m going to sleep in.

May not be a big deal for most – but it is for me.

If it Doesn’t Work, Stop Doing It!

Last night I decided to just crash and not do any of the same things I have been doing for weeks that I was doing in hopes they would get me better. But they stopped working about 2 weeks into this mess. So, last night I just went to sleep. No noisy humidifier. No essential oil diffuser. No wet rag and wool sock wrapped around my neck. No hot packs. No teas. No rubs. No gargles. No ice pack. No drops. No nothing. Just me and sleep. And it worked. I slept for 8 hours.

Sleep = Life.

Sleep = Healing.

Going to leave this blog in a moment to go crash again tonight.

Have I mentioned how much I love sleeping? I love my “babushka” (my nickname for our huge slug-of-a-mattress).

Starting a Slow Spring Cleaning

My newly organized and cleaned pantry.

When Hadassah and I finished up from our sauna time (and after a little stop to share a bagel on the way home) I felt good enough to begin a slow-paced (new for me) Spring cleaning. I love doing that before Pesach. So, I started with my pantry.

It was a disaster. Months of me neglecting it. But now as you can see below, can we say, “super organized?” LOL! The rest of the apartment is a disaster. But at least this little space is clean. I wish I could just crawl in the pantry and stay there for awhile.

I need to take account of my life before I go in pursuit of more blessings from Papa. This is how I start — cleaning.

Perhaps Papa’s Got a Reason

Well, maybe tomorrow my voice will begin to come back. It’s more gone than it was yesterday.

Though this morning as I laid in bed waking up I believe I heard Papa say, “It’s time for you to be quiet. Just rest your voice, girlfriend.” So, though super inconvenient, I’m confident that this is part of his plan to start this whole year off with a time of silence. Kinda cool. And it would have to be forced on me for me to do. I love my Papa!

BTW Spa Spokane is my friend, Wendy 🙂 I love my girlfriends (online and local).


One crazy idea I had today: why isn’t Yahshua back yet? Perhaps when he became human he actually gave up being able to create with just words – like he did before. Perhaps he truly did “go to prepare a place for us.” Like, I mean prepare with his own hands. Building each of our rooms in Papa’s house himself. That would take awhile. This would make him super busy, needing his priests here to continue on his work here so he could do his work there — don’t you think? ….. just a thought. 🙂
