I know I've mentioned that I am the most easily distracted person I know. I still have 4 other postings I have started working on but something always seems to come up that kind of insists that it needs to get done first...like now! :)
I've been enjoying "oatmeal and Eldredge" lately. As usual...it triggers things way down deep inside the old fella...this "O&E" time, it was a two sided thing...I'll talk about the second side next time....
Lots of excited people out there....their man is soon to take over the running of this country....lots of people have hope they didn't have 6 months ago....I like it when I see fear and depression lifting off people. Things should get better in the U.S. for a time. I hope it lasts. We need Government. I don't think it matters whether it is U.S. Government... European government....or anywhere in the world government....doesn't matter what political party is in this time...it can be democrats, republicats or alleycats....
It's the most powerful force in the universe.....unconditional love....that's what I was trying to communicate yesterday. I've talked about love before and the inadequacy of our language to communicate what God's love is like.....love has become a non-word....I love my new computer and I love my wife...when I tell her that I love her, it probably would not be a good idea to say that I love oatmeal and the Red Sox at the same time!
There are lots of different things that motivate us as people but the two biggies....the ones right up there at the top....the two most powerful motivational forces in this world....those are the ones I want to address today. Let's start with number 2 since most of the world finds this the one that holds the most power over us......fear!
Good Morning!...... :)
Off to another great start. Got my hospital lady all set and on her way by 6:30...had a great time with the Lord....got our oatmeal going on the stove and came into the office with my heart full of stuff to say.... I think the Lord gave me the next 3 or 4 musings this morning.....blows me away.....so I will take a little break for breakfast....be right back.
Wow! What a day. I can't believe all the energy I have. The more this energy thing is happening every day...the more I keep thinking about this guy Caleb. Is it really, really happening to me, Lord?
One more to go.....just one more big breakfast in the morning and the machinery here at the B&B will grind to its November halt. Must say it is a really good feeling. I'm thankful for so much that has happened since everything geared up last May, finishing with the crescendo of foliage. In October we experienced 80% occupancy which is mind boggling considering foliage was actually over by the middle of the month and we had very few guests this past week.
This is one of those "I can't believe I did this!" things....a really "duh!" moment in my life. Here I am, Mr. Wellness...President of the geriatric fitness/exercise/nutrition club.....preaching all the benefits of same....especially the absolute necessity of drinking tons a bunches of water every day!
Good Morning! :) I feel like I haven't written anything in ages...a week has flown by with the peaking of the foliage here in Vermont. If one hasn't experienced that time in Vermont, there is no way to explain it...people drive up unsuspectingly...they stop at a motel and discover there are no rooms...they either pay something like $500 a night or end up sleeping in their cars!
There is busy around here in the B&B.... and then there is busy!..... :)
