Worse yet, I think I have been waiting for You to help me feel like doing it. How foolish to think I will ever feel like doing something dull and tedious.

A Thermal Image of Myself?

I really want to take care of myself. But I feel as if I was absent when “they” taught Emotional Hygiene. Sigh, does anyone teach that? You say it is mentioned in the Bible — You call it speaking the Truth in Love. Hm. I just never thought about speaking the truth in love to myself! That sounds so obvious.

Beauty, Awe and Self Care

Somehow, God, all these years I equated Self Care with Selfishness. But, it belongs under Personal Responsibility! The Bible clearly tells us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. But, we tend to focus on OTHERS FIRST — and often ONLY — not realizing that order doesn’t work long-term.

Bed-Making 2.0: Putting Things Away
