How is your heart today?

The days go by, the internet and new is SO FULL of commentary. Yesterday, i turned off the news and ignored most of my newsfeed. I just could not handle it AT ALL Instead, I turned on the classical music radio station. I spent time outdoors, pulling weeds and walking the dogs (on the grassy area across the street). It was 100 degrees out, so I carried each of them across the hot asphalt. I ducked out for some groceries and picked up some canned meat, TP, and a big bag of kidney beans. Today is “quit procrastinating day” for me. There, it is official. You have it in writing. I have numerous tasks that I have put off. Today, some of them will be completed. Again, I have the news off. I get far too obsessed with what is going on, and then hours have gone by. The last time I was that bogged down was the weeks immediately following 9/11.

Today began (as everyday) with prayer and conversation with my understanding Shepherd. I poured my heart out and the weight lifted. So today, my heart feels less confused. That should help for awhile. I hope that today finds you in good health (mind, body, and spirit). I hope that today will have some joy and laughter and fresh air. Remember, you are not alone in all of this.

If nothing else, find some music to listen to that restores your peace of mind. Find something funny or inspirational to listen to on YouTube or TedTalks or Podcasts. Talk things over with God. Reach out and help someone. Scrub a floor. Any of those things can help “reset” or “reboot” your mind. I need that frequently these days. I hope that today is smooth sailing for you. Sending you love!!

  1. Each day for me is different Kate. Some days I am really good and then there are days…. I find that I have to be very careful about speaking with people. I find it’s not just about what they are saying but what comes out of my mouth when I have an opportunity to talk. I find praying before I do a zoom meeting or a phone call is very essential. My prayer is God if there be any wicked way in me ( if my thinking is stinking) please eliminate that before I take this call.

    Even the most difficult day improves when we go to the Father and ask Him to shed His light & perspective on the situation. Thankful 🙏🏼

  3. Shutting off all of those “voices” is imperative right now I think! So many conflicting opinions, viewpoints, and yes, even vitriol being spewed out. It’s easy to get caught up in it, so I just stay away from it. I know I need to listen to one voice and only one – and that is our sovereign Lord. His voice is the voice of Truth.
