Stirred, Not Shaken

Well, maybe a little shaken.
But I will get better.

God is at work, on me.
I told a friend I feel stirred up. But not JUST stirred up, I feel like I am in a giant Kitchen-Aid mixer with the paddle...I feel a little battered.
The pun at the time was not intended, but take it for what you will, I laughed.
Things are getting riled up and I have some house cleaning to do, literally and figuratively.
I have a house guest coming, so the literally has to happen for the rest, considering what I feel like, and knowing I could feel oh so much better, I am addressing cleaning up the inside asap as well.

What does this look like?

I called in back up, I called in a mentor to help me examine what's coming up to the surface.
My  coping mechanisms aren't working, because it's time to get rid of them.
I will have a Sozo, or healing prayer, session. It's a peaceful way to sort out some stuff and get rid of the lies. We all believe lies, from our past. Lies get in the way of the beautiful truth. Truth will set you free.Not self-actualization truth, God's truth.
I will dive into the word, and spend more time with my heavenly Dad.

And it will all be okay.
Whatever is ahead, whatever is coming...God is preparing me, and I will face it boldly with Him.

A Sad Break

Apple time!

Well, it's a little early, but our tree...
For some reason (found weak spot from previous injury) dropped a very large limb suddenly yesterday...
That's a 5 gallon bucket sitting next to it for scale...
 which we then filled up 3 of them.
Spencer and I tried to drag that limb towards the burn pile, but not only could we not due to it's weight, but I got to thinking. Apple wood is a good one to season and burn, and adds flavor if used for cooking. So a friend will stop by with a chainsaw to help us out.
So apple sauce, dried apples, apple butter, apple pie filling....and heat and flavor. Seems like good save to a sad limb break.

I have stared at this blank page all day.

Well, not all day. It has been opened in a tab all day with me avoiding looking at it.

I have a lot to say, just not right now.

So what I can say is this.

Choose your words carefully.
Give praise whenever possible, as often as possible.
This country needs rain, and divine intervention, will you join me in prayer?

Learn God's true word, treasure it, live it.

See ya tomorrow...

And So It Begins...

Someone started 8th grade yesterday, and it wasn't me...

I will try for a clear shot tomorrow.

Life Outside The Net...

 That's my dad with the hardhat and the chainsaw. Forestry Service marked trees that had to come down on our property, so my dad chose my birthday to cut some of them down.The crew worked well together.

  If you walk down the road from where we stay, and stand RIGHT HERE at the trail head you can receive texts, and sometimes a brief call. THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT IS THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH...and someone was brave enough to say it...
 Thanks Smokey for warning of the dangers of forest fires and outhouse stench.
