ALONG WITH US...
- PRAISING JESUS: My family and I were able to begin our week together in worship and dd gave her heart-felt testimony of what the three days volunteering during the assistance project had meant to her....i have pictures on my phone but haven't been able to download them yet ...but will as soon as I figure out which thingy to put the eentsy little card into that will then fit into the tiny SD card holder that will then fit into the slot on the computer. Interfaces can sometimes be such a pain. :( (have you ever done this?)
PRAISING JESUS: The summer vegetables are here...and on Monday as I was coming home from the "chiro-cracker"...don't tell my doctor I called it that, he doesn't like it when I say the work "crack" in relations to his expertise while adjusting my spine.) Anyway, just keep swimming, swimming, ... oh yeah, I bought the BEST tomatoes I've had all year :p and we've been licking our lips each time we eat 'em! (Do you have a favorite summer vegetable or recipe?)
- PRAISING JESUS: My Mother is 77 and still getting around like she did when I was a teenager...kinda, anyway. (She moves more than I do...and yes, Liddie, I'm still doing 30x5/Phase IV, just had a blip on the screen during my literal "pain-in-the-neck" days this past week and a half.) Just keep swimming, swimming...anyway, Mother knew I wasn't feeling good--she left multiple messages on my phone this past week...I love how she loves me. One day I know there will be a time when she won't be here to leave me messages. She's my best friend, EVER!!
PRAISING JESUS: Today's treadmill test was a test for dealing with "white-coat" anxiety...had to keep repeating, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."... The extra pounds I'm hauling gave much concern about taking this test...yes, I've been working hard since March and gradually it is melting away. Prayers were answered as I made it to the "level" "Doc Ray" had determined for my "age group" (no comments from the peanut gallery or snickers from the back, I know I'm old).
My heart was pounding and even double-skipped a couple of times--but this good 'ole heart, blood pressure and oxygen did as required (at 165 heartbeats per minute. It's an understatement to say I'm glad it didn't throw me into full cardiac arrest like a couple of people I've known in the past. Yep, I got to a full incline-3 minute-run. (Whew!!!) coining verbal liberty from "Ms. Underwood's" hit song: JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL, ...yes, Jesus took the "sneakers" :)
...He took care of me as the walls were starting to wobble, my calves began melting away from each tibia and Doc Ray saved me from the machine's throwing me back into the wall like a wet washrag.) What "out-of-the-
ordinary" medical test has brought on anxiety, sweaty palms, the inability to swallow, or shaking knees for you?
