JOY OF FINDING A GREAT HAIRSTYLIST

Ok, it may not look very different to anyone
Other than myself,
But
It's a new hairstylist's work and of course, a 
New Salon!

THE JOY OF AGING


I'm just not "there" yet.
The 
"JOY"
part of aging.
YES,
I'm thankful to be alive
and 
in "reasonably" good health
as I approach 
my
55th Birthday.
Yes
I know
"Age is just a number;
It's not how old 
but
how young you feel;
55
is the 
"new 45" 
or is it the 
"new 35"
now?
Being postive 
and 
getting healtheir
and all of
that is great and
true, I'm sure.
But,
I'm determined not to just
accept this new
age, 55
but to look for and
FIND
The Joy In Aging
or should I say
The Joy in Aging Well?
That takes a bit more effort
but the first step
is stop
procrastinating because
the years don't go by slowly 
anymore :-)

JOY IN COMMITMENT

LIMITLESS LIFE  By Derwin L. Gray

The new book study
at
P31
I think I will actually try
to not only commit to
doing this book study
BUT
ACTUALLY
DO IT!

BLOG JOY

 
 
 
Yes, I think I will make another attempt at blogging, even though
I really have nothing of importance to say.
I have a beautiful blog
design by Karen Valentine
and the least
I can
do is actually use it!

JOY OF A NEW HAIRCUT

I know how silly it sounds -
You don't have to remind
me.
But, for some of us,
a great haircut
is just what
you need 
WHEN
Everything and Nothing 
is going wrong.
When you are going in a million directions
Or
Just Plain Bored.
I don't think it's in keeping with the 
Spirit of Lent.
Actually
I know it's not if we 
were looking at 
the 
Saints "tough Lenten fasts"
many centuries ago.
Of course,
if I were taking
my vows as a
Nun
or 
Sister 
in
a Monastery, or Cloister, Abbey, or
Medieval Nunnery,
My haircut would
be a very crude
chopping off of anything 
that would be considered 
worldly vanity.
Ok,
I think I really have a lot more 
Lent 
to actually consider since
I'm happy about my haircut!
Actually,
It's not officially
Vanity
or 
Pride.
It's a great haircut
done by an
excellent artist
on a 55 Year Old Grandmother
That can't be 
Vanity.
It's more like
something that
rhymes with Vanity,
SANITY
Now if only I didn't have to
sleep on it 
or wash it
or blow it dry
myself.
Thanks Carlos for the
"make-over" 
Back to Lent...

The Real Joy Of Faith


Not 
"Can you"
but
"Will you?"
Without any social media at all?
Still must check emails
But,
No wandering down the
black hole
of 
the time sucking
internet.

Say "YES"
because 
to connect with HIM
in 
this journey of
Lent
You must go out with
HIM
into the desert.
I will say yes and wait until Easter
to return
praying
that i 
will return restored and renewed!

The Joy Of The Lenten Journey


Deactivated Facebook today for Lent. It is necessary, at least, for me. I need to start to remember what is really the most needed things and, most importantly, to prioritize the "everyday people" in my life.
This picture reminds me of the tangible. Books...real paper and print and even a hardbound cover.  
Remember what it is to really touch, taste, see and smell in reality instead of virtual reality.
