Who Needs a Hug???


I’m hoping everyone is coping as well as can be expected with isolation and social distancing. As for me, I’m in severe hug withdrawal, so am sending hugs to all my friends and family including the blogging world. Happy Saturday.

A Prayer for Covid-19


My scripture reading yesterday was Psalm 80 and within that Psalm was this plea, “Restore us O God; make your face shine upon us that we may be saved.” It was repeated four times referring to the problem of the day. How wonderful that we can make it our prayer today. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8 NIV. Happy Saturday.

Favorite Songs


One of my many favorite songs is Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. One of my favorite performers of this song is k.d. lang.  She performs Hallelujah with such feeling, the audience appreciation is palpable.  Note the passion she puts into her performance, especially at the end. The song took Cohen two years to write and was released in 1984. Happy Saturday.

More Lexophilia Laughs


Now that I’ve found this new word, lexophilia, I’m insatiable as you can see:

How does Moses make tea? Hebrews it.

I changed my iPod’s name to Titanic. It’s syncing now.

A girl said she recognized me from the vegetarian club but I’d never met herbivore.

I did a theatrical performance about puns. It was a play on words.

What about the cross-eyed teacher who lost her job because she couldn’t control her pupils.

And then there’s the guy who got a job at a bakery because he kneaded dough.

And the man who dropped out of communism class because of lousy Marx.

Velcro – what a ripoff!

Broken pencils are pointless.

Don’t worry about old age; it doesn’t last.

That’s all for today, folks.

Happy Saturday

 

Life’s Angels


To follow up on last Wednesday’s blog, I found another angel song that touched me; and also another scripture about angels. I’m so happy to find my angels again. Happy Saturday.

Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. Revelation 5:11

What’s in a Breath?


One of the lessons I have learned in life is how to breathe in those anxious and painful times we all experience sooner or later.

This is what I have learned:

Sit quietly in a comfortable position

Place tongue behind top teeth and breathe in slowly through the nose to the count of seven.

Place tongue behind bottom teeth and breathe out slowly through pursed lips to the count of eight.

Repeat eight times.

I usually do this two or three times in one sitting, a few times a day, and at bed time.

What’s in a breath? Life.

What’s in a breathing exercise? A more relaxed life.

Happy Saturday.

 

Taken for Granted


There is a fresh blanket of snow covering the ground and deck at the back of my house. This in itself is not surprising in winter. What’s different this morning is that there is neither bird nor squirrel in sight. Usually I wake up to squirrels chasing each other all over the place and birds flocking to the feeder. But there is not a single sign of these creatures. The snow is eerily undisturbed and the air is remarkably still. I slowly realize that I am missing what I have always taken for granted. I wonder where they are. Happy Saturday.
