Resilience

Leontopodium nivale, commonly called edelweiss, is a mountain flower belonging to the daisy or sunflower family Asteraceae.

The plant prefers rocky limestone places at about 1,800–3,000 metres altitude.

It is non-toxic and has been used in traditional medicine as a remedy against abdominal and respiratory diseases. Wikipedia

Jesus help me to be tough and hard to kill. Hardy.

Resilient.

“NEEDTOBREATHE – “LET’S STAY HOME TONIGHT” [Live From Celebrating Out of Body]” on YouTube

I was just thinking about something with Jesus.

Hubby and I have friction over whether to go out or stay home quite a bit.

Bring it on!

We have regular dates

1. once a week for conflict resolution

2. and once a week for fun.

And he will often say he wants to stay home.

While I have been home all the time and want to get out of my sickbed and see something beside my walls.

Deflated

This song came to my mind as I was pondering……so I looked it up on YouTube and was listening to it again prayerfully with God.

I suddenly saw that this– our home– is my husband’s Oasis.

he’s safe here.

He can rest and relax and let his hair down in respite.

Of course he would not want to leave it!

It’s sweet that he wants me to be in it with him.

I think instead of being resentful at him and thinking he wants me to be constricted and limited,

I will reframe it reboot my heart

and find it endearing

that he wants to be safe at home with me.

We still need to compromise maybe every other time we can go out or something. I need that.

But

it helps me to understand where he’s coming from you know?

Trade

I used to think I was hot stuff. I did everything. Was in control of it all. Kept all my plates spinning. Was a bit bossy and abrasive, frankly.
woMan on a Mission
Then MS happened and DID happened and foolish life choices happened…all ashes But all that doesn’t matter now. As much as Jesus. He’s got a plan for me which is good and hopeful and full of promise. (Jeremiah 29:11) He’s enough. He’ll work it out. He will give me beauty for those darn ashes. (Isaiah 61)
Paul tells himself the truth

Pressure off 

God’s not like that . He gets it.

I think our feminist-influenced media gives our guys too much grief, not enough support.

They put the bar up there so high, that no guy could reach it.

I think the average guy loves his family and wants to take care ❤ of them. But the MrRogersmeetsscottishhighlandlaird ideal that the media idealizes is NOT real life.

Am I right?

I want my hubby to feel relaxed, accepted and admired at a 7 with the occasional 5 and occasional 8 or 9.

I want to be secure in my relationship with Jesus.

Jesus is my 10.

Always strong and confident, always tender and empathetic. That’s my God.

Soul food

Remember that commercial for mountain dew?

Where the guy Is hot and tired

 And takes a drink of mountain dew 

and then, in his mind, falls into a huge lake of refreshing, cold water?

I remembered that commercial from the 80s when I was Thinking about this verse with Jesus.


I feel a sense of nostalgic longing, or burning in my soul.

Don’t you?

Like on the road to Emaus (luke 24) when the disciples asked each other– after Jesus appears, explains the scriptures to them, and then disappears –“we should’ve known it was Jesus because didn’t our hearts burn within us?”

I also remembered the verse in the song of songs that says refresh me with Apples and raisins for I am sick with love (song of songs 2)

also, the Bible talks about David and his warriors finding a survivor of the Canaanite raiders (Ziklag), who rode off with their stuff and their wives and children while they were gone. They find an Egyptian slave who was left for dead. He hasn’t eaten For days, and been sick with a fever, and the Bible says they gave him water and a cake of figs and he was refreshed and revived in his soul and could talk to them about which way the bad guys went. (1 Sam 30:11)

Thank you Father for your word that is meat and drink to my soul .
