Things to ponder and pray about.....

First of all, let's remember Christy's dad, Tam Wilson as he undergoes open heart surgery this week. She left a blog comment that her dad is still in the hospital and needs our prayers.

I may blog later but I'm having a hard time putting my thoughts together. I did receive this via e-mail and I thought it was good food for thought.

Until later, love to all!

Happy New Year!

A Great Recipe for a peace-filled life in 2009

1. Take a 10 to 30 min. walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.
2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Talk to God about what is going on in your life. 3. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My purpose is to __________ today. I am thankful for______________'
4. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
5. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wildAlaskan sal mon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts
.6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
7. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment
.8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.
9. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
10. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
11. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
12. You are not so important that you have to win every argument.Agree to disagree.
13. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
14. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
15. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
16. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five y ears, will this matter?'
17. Forgive everyone for everything.
18. What other people think of you is none of your business.
19. GOD heals everything - but you have to ask Him.
20. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
21. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick (this doesn't apply to me because my work family has been awesome!!!!) . Your friends will stay in touch.
22. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
23. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements:I am thankful for __________. Today I accomplished _________
.24. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.
25. When you are feeling down, start listing your many blessings.You'll be smiling before you know it. :-)

I love the Recipe. I printed out a copy and hung it up at work, to remind myself daily to follow the recipe. Each of these are things that we know to do but sometimes we become so caught up in living life day to day that we forget the essential ingredients of the recipe and that’s when life becomes hairy.
Sorry that you’re having a rough time. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.
Love you
