I look to you, heaven-dwelling God, look up to you for help. (Psalm 123:1, The Message)
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:1-2)
Spent a little time on the back porch this afternoon
soaking up some sun and doing a few of my exercises holding on to the porch rail.
I was thankful to be surrounded by early autumn beauty
and sad when the loose pages of directions for some knee rehab exercises
floated off the seat of my walker.
I haven't gotten to the "stairs phase" of rehab yet,
so I tossed a couple of weights on them and will ask my husband to retrieve them later.
I often "toss a couple of weights" on quotations that inspire/instruct/challenge me--
short, concise statements that I don't want to float out of my mind.
I do that by storing them in my hand-written journal*, in the quotes tab of this blog,
or in my Twitter account.
They are more easily retrieved than before
when I wrote them on random pieces of paper that were difficult to re-source....
*Have you noticed how frequently Dr. David Jeremiah encourages
his congregation and listeners to journal?
