It's Sunday

It is Sunday so a good time to relax for the day after going to Church.
Of course,you can do something different as well.

My church we have our freedom prayer time in the early evening for a
couple hours to change people's lives for eternity. Included is letting them
know what their life purpose God gave them.

It is good to meditate  going into a new week. Ask for strength and prayers
for your family and friends.

Let life be a changing experience. Amen!

Visit The Cascade Mountains

I can see Mt. Rainier the largest mountain in the cascades almost every day.
 It is always an awesome sight. 

The ski resorts are all open in the area for skiing. Great place to visit 
and ski for those that are interested. 

/We are expecting more rain here but it means more snow to ski in. 
Mt. Rainier National Park has been closed because of landslides. 
Not sure if it is open again; however, other areas are open to get to the snow.

Onto another subject. Change is often hard for us to deal with. 
Most of the time we don't want to be involved in change though 
we know it is best for us.

I tried a  little change for Mother yesterday but didn't seem to 
go over very well so I decided to go back to what we were 
doing before. I may have to return to the change but not right now.

So whether you are enjoying your weather or needing to make changes 
enjoy your life to the fullest.

Happy Valentine's Day

I know not everywhere do people celebrate Valentine's Day; however, if you have a loved one make
sure they know that you love them.

Love is part of our life purpose and the ones we love the most are part
of the group we have for purpose.

We don't have to celebrate one day a year but every day should happen.
Take your partner out showing them what it means.

Do what is important to them. You know them the best.

Exciting To Share

On Wednesday now my mother has visitors from Hospice one was a pastor who visits patience so it was the first time he stopped by.

My mother fell asleep after he introduced himself. So  I gave him the background of her life and where she went to church. 

After that we talked about life purpose. It was exciting to share with him how I feel about our life purpose. 

He agreed that our number one life purpose we were created for God's purpose. He asked me the question what about those who don't believe in God. We agreed they probably don't think much about their life purpose or they see it in a different way.

I look forward to his visit again in a couple weeks. I hope mother is awake longer next time. She gets tired easily so she sleeps a lot these days. On the plus side she is starting to eat more these days but it depends on how much she sleeps too. 

So share with others what your life purpose well as doing it. Find out from them what they feel is their life purpose. I know I am going to do more of it including with those I know. Peace and God's blessing.

An Interesting Day

I have spent almost seven years watching my mother as her full-time  care giver. Today it changes a little bit anyway. Another care-giver comes aboard this afternoon to take care of her for four hours.

I haven't decided what I will do as of yet. What I will do will depend on the weather for the most part. If it is raining I will spend the time at coffee shop relaxing, reading and conversation with others. 

The rain doesn't happen then I will go walking around the waterfront of Gig Harbor. I will take my camera to take a few pictures. I will probably spend a little time at coffee shop as well.

I have mother in hospice care now which isn't much different than the home-care she has been on since she came home from rehab in November. Hospice care emphasizes comfort for their patients 
so a little difference from home-care who were caring for her wounds. They to have service where someone will come in to spend time with mother so I can get away as well. So this way I can spend a couple days on my own during the week. 

I look forward to spend a few extra hours tending to my other purposes. My mother is still my primary purpose at this time.

An Interesting Meeting

Yesterday afternoon a woman came up to me while waiting for coffee. We chatted for several minutes. She is moving to Sacramento, California to be near her parents who are in their 80s. Her father is still working.

She didn't tell me how long she has lived in Gig Harbor, however, the apartment she was living in is being renovated so almost everyone has moved out. Only a few left in her unit. She told me she will not be able to afford the new rent of the place or for that matter at other apartment buildings. I am not surprised since she is by herself.

She has a daughter and a grand daughter living in Port Townsend which is about an hour and a half drive north on the Olympic Peninsula so she will be back in the area on occasion to visit. I wished her the best when leaving.

I thought after she left it would have been nice to have met her before. It was one of those moments we can cherish when meeting another person. Another good reason to be open to our life purpose.

It Is G Day

Another Monday has arrived. I hope everyone had a good weekend.

I am calling this g day as well. For gratitude, goodness, and grace. Living a life of purpose having all three really helps out. It isn't always easy to follow though; however, we must do our very best. Amen!

Enjoyment Comes This Week

For those of us that are baseball fans this is a good week as major league baseball begins with pitchers and catchers reporting for spring training.

Every team is optimistic in one fashion or another though for some making the playoffs and the World Series isn't realistic. This can come to players trying to make a major league roster as well.

Most teams will have only have a few spots open for players trying to make the jump from the minor leagues or veterans trying to keep a career going. There will only be a handful will be able to succeed. Major league teams already know who will be their starters whether in pitching or on the field at all the positions. They may only have a couple spots where players are competing. This year they are expanding from 25 to 26 players so one additional reserve player will be added to the roster. So someone who would have gone to the minor leagues before now will be on the roster to begin the season. All depending on how they perform will determine how long they stay around along with injuries that always happen during the season.

It is a whole different world then what we the normal person lives in. We can look at our gifts and talents to see where it fits in the world. We can make a difference in someone's life just a baseball player can do so for a baseball team. We can live in a way that others can only imagine. Though everyone has their unique gifts and talents along with life purpose do they realize it is the case for them or they just living day to day to survive.

My encouragement is we can be someone who lives up to the purpose God created them to be and it can start today. It doesn't matter where we have been yesterday or the day before that the thing is we are living today and we can start it today. We can ask God where we should begin and who we can make a difference in their lives. Also, we can see who will make a difference in our lives too. Amen!

OK We Are Not Perfect

It is Ok we are not perfect. We should never stop our purpose because we are not perfect and make mistakes. 

Since we are not perfect we need each other's help. A reason God gave us our purpose with gifts and talents to allow us to help others who are not perfect either. We have gifts and talents others don't have.

We are unique in our gifts and talents though they can be similar to others. My nephew Ian and I are a lot a like in personality. We have some of the same gifts and talents but he has some that I don't have and the same goes for me he doesn't. 

We can help others in partnership as well where the other person have gifts and talents we don't have but work together to help those who need of the gifts we have.

Continue to Encourage

We should continue to encourage one another. It can become where we might decide to abandon our purpose when times get tough or we are unbelieving. It happens to us all.

Our family and friends should be available for us to work things out for their benefit and ours. It doesn't matter if we have any differences or not.

Continues To Rain

Here in Western Washington it continues to rain. In fact, we are close to half of the rainfall for last year. We are currently at 12.38 inches of rain for this year. Last year we were at 29,02 inches which is a far cry from the yearly average of 42 inches.

Besides the rain we have several rivers ready to flood and multiply landslides as well. So precautions are underway. 

A lot of people here get depressed during the winter months because of the rainfall. Even when it isn't raining it is cloudy. We can go days without seeing the sun. 

This means we need to encourage one another every day This is a major part of our purpose anyway. Amen!

Joy Comes In The Morning

Psalm 30 verse 5 says “…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

This is where hope comes from. In the morning it is a new day. Whatever happened yesterday is gone.

Spread the word to others when times are tough. We all need hope.

Hugs will help too.
