Hi Journal & Friends,
This is the last of the Fair pics... I promise!
The first one with the umbrella is when we started out in the morning... bright-eyed and bushy tailed.
The young goat in the middle was so cute... all frisky and continually trying to butt the bigger goat with his baby-size horns.
The last one, lower right, is at the end of the day... wilted, hot and tired.
I can't wait til next years Fair!
Today's Peek at the Past (Wow, this reminder was perfect for me today!)
From Day 13, August 22, 2009:
So, FOR ME... daily spiritual input has to do with CONNECTING... connecting with that which is bigger than me. Maybe reading, or praying, or meditating... maybe a time of quiet and listening.
In the past, I used to have a more rigid approach...now I want reality, not form... a relationship, not legalism or ritual. This helps me get the "big picture", beyond my tiny world, or stuck focusing on the minutia of my day.
Connecting to the Eternal reminds me to live NOW. I believe that when life here ends, that is not the "end".
...I like the song that says: "I know not what my future holds, but I know the One who holds my future."
Many times I came close to quitting on this journey to health... giving up. But as I got close to the brink, I would feel tugged back, and the thought would comfort me that God wasn't giving up on me...and neither should I.

Enjoy the Journey,
