The real vote of 2012

In the absence of a conservative win this past election season, it's easy to become jaded and think that the votes were not fair. However, never fear because the voting can still continue. How??? You may be asking yourself. Well no the vote is not for the POTUS, the Lord and voters have already spoken on that account. The real vote for 2012 is in regards to a contest that the Navy Exchange is holding. I have a couple friends that have entered it, but I'm choosing to post this one in voting for it because one, it can easily be make to be GF with Betty Crocker's GF Yellow Cake mix and two, Jenn (my friend that has entered) is planning on doing some gift giving with her prize, which for me makes a potential win all that much sweeter. What's at stake you ask? A mixer from the Navy Exchange! There's stiff competition to be had.

The Bible talks a lot about giving. The verse that pops into my head while I compose this is Luke 6:38.

~ Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. ~
Luke 6:38

In case you don't know, that was the Lord speaking those words. And in getting to know Jenn, she's one of the biggest (not literally because she's pregnant) givers that I know. She has such a generous spirit about her. So click on the link below to vote for her Cinnamon Butter Cake, and help spread the giving spirit this holiday season. O and you also get the recipe when you click on the link, seriously giving! You give a vote and she gives you a new recipe. The giving circle continues.

The best part it that it's a simple popular vote too, no electoral college to contend with Praise the Lord! So you know that you're vote will be counted, no matter where you live.

Good Luck Jenn!!!

PT has begun.

PT, as in physical therapy, has started for me...finally! Really, unless you've been through something like that yourself, there really is no describing it. I literally am learning to walk again. And since I've been walking since I was 7 months old this is a very odd process. Yesterday was my second therapy session and it took every once of energy I had to concentrate on balancing my walking in a straight line, without falling of course. That exercise was to focus on the fine muscle movement of my heel. And then my therapist had me work on weight bearing exercises so that the right side of my body would stop over compensating for my lack of mobility on my left side. It was so weird to have to concentrate on not letting my left heel move and making sure that I got my weight evenly distributed. There are so many things about our bodies that we take for granted everyday, I know I did before this summer. In case anyone has been counting I'm at month 3.5 in this odyssey. I'm hoping that by Christmas, or New Years, that I'll be able to get back on the elliptical machine for some real exercise.

Through this all my friends have been very accommodating and encouraging to me. I'm still using my friends car, which may change soon. At least until I use it again to drive to CA for Christmas. Yeah, that's going to be so great! And then my Secret Prayer Sister this past month totally surprised & spoiled me this month as well. Things are looking up and every day I am thankful for what I have, even if it takes me a little while to think about what it is that I am blessed with. I know that the Lord does all things well...Psalm 139.
