Morning Thoughts

Devotionals

Reading the devotionals this morning. It is about peace.

I read from Joyce Meyer Trusting God day to day. It is a lovely book with anedotes she shares that puts the scripture in perspective.

“Pursuing peace means making an effort.”

I hear so many of my clients wanting peace. I agree we need to make an effort in it, but we need to seek God for the help.

I usually ask my clients what behaviors can bring you peace?

My Peace

  • Quiet house
  • Reading devotionals
  • Bible study
  • Beauty
  • Nature
  • Cross Stitch
  • Knitting
  • Art
  • Calmness around me
  • Positive people
  • Soft fabrics
  • Good food
  • Clean home

I think the list can go on.

Try thinking and writing down your peace. And ask yourself if you include God in it.

Breakfast

My breakfast, green tea, toast with avocado and fried egg with everything bagel seasoning, and tomatoes and cucumbers with lemon basil vinaigrette.

Of course my cat has to lick the plate.

I have a few minutes before I have to take my dog out one more time before I head to the office. I’m going to tidy up a little and knit a few rows of the scarf I’m making.

Happy Day

Simple Morning Routine

Today I woke up feeling lethargic and sad. Nothing happened between last night and this morning to bring on my sadness.

I ended up sleeping on the sofa for an hour after my pets wanted to be fed. Then I took a hot shower and took a short walk with my dog. I didn’t have enough time to walk her and make a hot drink before I had to sign on the computer for my first client.

Gluten Free Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate sounded like a perfect feeling better hot drink.

I bought a gluten free hot chocolate Silliness by Nature/ silly ow farms. It’s expensive but certainly healthier for my digestive system.

First I pour almond milk in my cup to measure how much I need. Then I pour the milk in a saucepan. Heat it. I never bring it to a boil. I like the milk to be warm not overly hot.

While the milk is warming up, I measure 2 teaspoons of the hot chocolate mix and put it in my cup.

Then I pour the warm milk in my cup. And stir.

I had a few extra minutes so I started writing a list of books I want to read. I’m not an avid reader but I want to incorporate it into my evening relaxing routine.

After my session, I had time to prepare part of my dinner I will have tonight. Having an autoimmune illness, preparing meals ahead is helpful. Plus it’s supposed to rain and turn to a wintery mix. Ughh…

Last Friday I made chicken soup in a crockpot. I took that out of the freezer. And decided to make cornbread muffins. Using Krusteaz cornbread mix.

Cornbread Muffins

I decided to have a cornbread muffin with my lunch. It was tasty. Then afterwards I had the cinnamon muffin for some sweetness.

Off to the Office

Happy Day
