What I am about to write is going to sound absolutely crazy to some people, but I'm going to write it anyway because it's my blog and I can if I want to. :) People who know me well, know that I often get nudges from the Holy Spirit. Often He nudges me to do something that I would never think of in a million years. Sometimes these little messages cause me to think, "with all due respect, ARE YOU CRAZY?" Anyway, yesterday, during the Eucharistic Prayer at Mass, I got another one of these nudges. Only this one wasn't asking me to do something, it was telling me that my burden of this excess weight will be lifted. I normally keep my spiritual writing confined to my other blog, however my Friend nudged me again this morning. Okay, it's done.

I have so much to do today that I was tempted to skip the walk. I kept putting off getting out the door. And then I remembered that I had promised several people that I would pray for them the next time I prayed the rosary. So out the door I went. The deadend was pretty muddy in spots, and the wind was a little chilly. That wouldn't normally be a problem but when I breathed in, my one tooth ached. Thank goodness I have a dentist appt. tomorrow. On the way back I decided to run up to the window of my daughter's house and wave at the kids. They usually see me, but I can't see them. When they saw me coming, they ran out onto the porch. Now, I really do have to get to work!!
I promised to make myself a candle when I reached my first mini-goal. In light of the fact that God's commitment to me is so much more powerful than any commitment I could make to myself, and in celebration of that, I went ahead and made a candle this morning. Some fragrance oils that I ordered came in this morning. I made a maple syrup scented candle ( I have to think of a cool name for this scent) and it smells sooooooo good.
