Mish Mash Leg Day


































Had a good Father's Day - which surprised me because Steve and I were fighting mightely Saturday night and then I had a dream I was yelling "I HATE YOU" at the top of my lungs over and over again. Sheesh...then Sunday night I dreamed I murdered my mom something like 5 or 6 times and in the end I got it with a hack saw to my neck???????????????? What the heck is going on in my subconscious?
Anyhoo...picnic with Steve's family on Sunday. The dads all had close their eyes and put on a baseball cap with an emblem or saying on it and try to figure out what it was by asking the other men 20 questions. Pretty fun and silly.

Today was mishmash of legs. Tracy no-showed, but I think Summer vacation started for her kids and they are probably at the cabin and I just forgot. I did a bunch of different light weight/moderate high rep exercises. I've been without my blood pressure meds for a couple days and was pretty miserable yesterday. I need to PICK UP MY MEDS at the pharmacy!!

I've been trying to like broccoli. I want to like broccoli...so I've started eating 3 raw flowerettes before each meal - like maybe 4 out of 6 meals per day. It's been going good so far and I don't want to gag anymore :o)

I'm doing a bible study with some friends called "It's Not About Me" by Max Lucado. I came across the following three nuggets for thought about Seeking the Giver...or His gifts? Big stuff for me to consider....

"It is a serious evil to have more regard for God's blessings than for God himself." - John of the Cross

"The reason why we have no ease of heart or soul [is because] we are seeking our rest in trivial things which cannot satisfy, and not seeking to know God, almighty, all-wise, all-good...We shall never cease wanting and longing until we possess him in fullness and joy. Then we shall have no further wants." - Julian of Norwich

"God waits to be wanted, but he must be wanted for himself, not for some lesser good he may provide". - Ken Boa

"God's primary agenda for our lives is not our wholeness, but his glory. He's not the divine therapist...True spirituality is about far more than simply getting fixed; it is about living in such a fashion that those around us are drawn to take God more seriously." - Dwight Edwards

Getting where I want to be:
In His peaceful presence,
Julie

In my small group I heard someone say "God is not your personal sugar-daddy". I thought that was a GREAT point. How many times have I ignored God until something great happens and THEN I'm all about Him? gosh he must get so fed up with me.

LOVE the games that your family plays. That is so rare and precious, you're so lucky!
