We laugh and say, "It looks pretty much the same everyday. Slow & Boring! We get up whenever we wake up. We sit and drink coffee, chat, listen to worship, listen to Bible teaching...whatever moves us and we do this usually for 2 hours!"
Laughter erupts...usually from us.
Then I (Diane) make the bed, wash up any dishes laying around, throw in some laundry: sheets on Saturday, towels on Tuesday and clothes when the hamper is full or work jeans are piled in the garage. Then I go out in my studio and meet with God some more. I usually put on a teaching or some soaking music and sit quietly, in silence.
(It's a disciple I've learned...being quiet. It's only in the quiet can I hear from God. He speaks to me in pictures and usually I see something and then I hear Him. Most recently I've been transferred...yes, I was in heaven and He downloaded a song to me....I was the most surprised of all. That's for another day. Paul talks about it. John talks about it. I'm not going to worry whether you believe me or not. I'm not your judge. Since moving and actually spending much quality time with my Lord, His Spirit has taken over, His gifts have grown in me and He has been revealing truth to me at great speeds and depths. I believe Ephesians 1:17-18 "...that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you...He STILL speaks to man or woman! )
In early Spring I get a good hour or more of sun. Every 20 minutes is approximately 20iu of Vit D. It's been a huge asset to my health. Depending on the time of year it's usually the hours after noon or the hours before noon. I want the sun at a slight angle to get the most of the UBV rays not the UVA. I'll even do this in February as the sun is getting closer to us in Texas.
Around noon, I usually fix our "dinner". We eat our big meal at noonday and usually fast for 18-24 hours. It's part of my healing routine. It's known as IF Intermittent fasting. We usually sit and chat some more for a couple hours....by 2pm we are pretty much caught up on the day. I clean up and do whatever chores need finishing, like laundry or vacuuming. Then I shower and put my jammies on!
We wind down with a movie because we don't have "TV". It's how we remain sane in this insane world today. We ditched TV when we moved here 5 years ago. If we want "news" we go hunting for it from OUR reliable sources or independent journalist. And around 7P we wrap up our day, doing last minute things for the dogs and cat, brushing our teeth...you know the regular night time rituals. We spend time again together reading the Word and praying before we kiss, and turn out the light around 8P. Hubs rubs my back till he falls asleep...I'm SO spoiled and I read for an hour and am asleep by 9P. I usually never wake up during the night which I credit to my healing regimen of 6mg Melatonin and a few other supps that are specific to me and my "dirty genes". I usually wake up around 6A, sometimes 5A, sometimes 7A....but usually 6A. Hubs is up and down all night. Ooy. He resists taking Melatonin but I count on it. So....I call him, my night crawler! Just so long as he crawls quietly through the house!!! :) He does!
Above is my faux "Chick-fil-A" sandwich. SO good. Actually just about everything I put in the form of sammie is SO good. I don't know why, but I love eating with my hands! Makes everything taste better.
I'll tell you about this painting in the next few days or so. I don't know if I'll post daily....as you can see we really do lead a very boring....yawn....yawn some more....life in retirement. It's JUST the way we like it!!! Life can get way too interesting.
You can look forward to my food! My healing from MS! My inspired art! My Bible studies. My journey in life here in the Piney Woods of Texas.
