Monday Musings

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! Has cupid come by to see you yet? This is my cupid!

I noticed this morning taking the GS to school that it is light out - last week it was dark and now it is light - with no time change - SPRING IS COMING!


Its time again. Tear up the violets and plant something more difficult to grow.
- James Schuyler

Now this means to me it's getting time to clean the body and soul and get it ready for spring time. To let go of the hurts and pains of the past or even do a fast or body cleanse (to spring clean the body)- and get it ready to feel happy and spring like.
Work on a challenge we have put off or think is too hard - we can do it!
I am going to clean the cobwebs out and make room for some new challenges.

I think I'm going to tackle weight - not a diet - but to feed my body healthier.


FYI: Debbie is now awake and off the ventilator, however she is not talking yet. So thanks very much for the prayers - I do believe she is going to make it. I have no idea if there is any damage or not, but I will let you know. Thank you for the prayers.

Another goal is that I'm going to try to keep my blogs shorter, only problem is I'm kind of a chatty gal!
Love, Chatty

Me too. I need to work on my body, especially the middle.If I can get that part smaller, I would be a happy camper. I agree, Spring is a time to clean out and plant the new. Here is to success for us all. Good news about Debbie. I will continue to keep her in prayer. How is that knee?

Melanie said...

Thanks for the updates on Debbie. We'll continue to pray for her.

Sure hope that Debbie continues to improve. Prayers are an amazing power. Your remarks about cobwebs made me look up....ugh....another thing to add to the list!

Ginny said...

Oh, I am so glad about Debbie!! Why are you trying to shorten the posts, have some said they are too long? I hope you have a wonderful day. Sandie! I'm spending mine with our two littelest Valentines!

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

Happy V-day Sandie. I have to work on quite a few things myself. It's so hard because everything I want to do takes time...and I seem to have so little of it. I can't wait for Spring...longer days.

Hope you're having a great day!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie: Good goals. Concentration on health rather than weight is what I'm trying to do, too. Just got back from an hour's swimming.

Take care and on this day of love, have FUN! Susan

Spring is just around the corner. Glad your friend is improving. Wishing you the all best this Valentine's Day!

Carol said...

Happy Valentine's Day to you Sandie! Thank you for the update on your friend, I have been praying for her, good to see the results of our prayers. Please don't make your blog shorter....It is perfect just the way it is.

♥ YOU!

Sandra said...

that is good news about debbie. your cupid looks like he might be mine, due to the uuuuuummmmmm weight problems

Happy Valentines to you too Chatty. Yes, isn't it wonderful how the days are really getting longer all of a sudden. Spring really IS only just round the corner. Amen to that? I am so pleased to hear about Debbie. I'm sure that there is a long way to go, so we must all keep her in our prayers. It is a time to look forward. I don't need to worry about weight as, since I've been in bed with this flu, I've gone down to 7 lb. 13 ozs! Lots of cream cakes to be eaten when I'm feeling better me thinks! Good post, as always.

Thisisme. said...

LOL!!! You'll be getting really worried about me. That previous comment should have read 7 STONE 13, and not 7 lb. 13!!!!

Sharon Kirby said...

Happy Valentine's Day to you!! Hope you have a great day.

Good, good news about Debbie - hope that the Lord continues to work miracles in restoring her health.

Cupid sent me flowers (!) and gave me three cards - he's such a sweetie!

And Jesus, the supreme Lover of my soul, brought me another beautiful, sunny day so I could praise Him again!

Kiddo, you'd better promise to take care of YOURSELF!!!...:)JP

Jane said...

Hey Sandie, happy v day to you too! I am grateful for our spring like weather here too. We love your posts just as they are. Blessings jane

Sue @ Not the Good Scissors! said...

I noticed the first light going into work the other morning. Yay! I love the mornings. Now if they would just leave this time change thing alone. Come April I will be going into work in the dark again for a few more weeks.
Happy Valentine's Day

Debbie said...

What a wonderful PRAISE about Debbie.

And I like your spring body cleaning idea. That's exactly what I need.

That corgi :) said...

I do agree that it is getting lighter in the mornings and evenings! Spring is definitely around the corner!! I like your goals to clean cob webs mentally and emotionally; that could help dealing with physical, know what I mean?

thanks for the update on your friend; had prayed for her; glad to hear she is making progress!

hope you have a nice day!!!


Linda @ A La Carte said...

I'm with you on needing to work on making myself healthier!

Mevely317 said...

Goodness, my friend ... you've got me sitting up a little straighter over here; ever consider a 2nd career as a Life Coach? :)

Thank you for always being ready with some tid-bit of wisdom and good cheer .... Happy Valentine's Day!

Buttercup said...

Continuing prayers for Debbie. Hope she grows stronger every day! We had a beautiful day here today and I was thrilled to realize that it's light until almost 6:00 PM. Hurray, it's time to think about being lighter all around!

Doris Sturm said...

We just barely made it to wish you a very happy Valentine's Day,
Sandie. I hope it was a pleasant day for you and my Cupid looks a lot like yours - LOL - but then I look a lot like that cupid myself ;-)

I'll keep remembering your friend, Debbie, in my prayers!

Good news about Debbie and will continue sending prayers her way. Happy Valentine's Day Sandie, a bit late, but it's sincere.
