PROMPT November 29th

Imagine for a moment that you are near the end of your life. What do you want to have done that would make you feel satisfied?

I want to live for Christ. I want to take others to heaven with me when I die. I want my life to be a reflection of God’s love and personality. I want to publish at least one book, more if God allows.

PROMPT November 28th

Hopefully a little change of pace tonight. Write about something intangible: faith, magic, energy, power, or creativity. Just choose one topic, and write about it.

I have to have faith my health will improve. Of course it would help if I didn’t severely strain my neck muscles 2 days before my surgery. Ouch! This is painful. Although, I think God may have allowed me to hurt myself to ensure I would take it easy after my surgery because I tend to push myself to do things rather I feel like it or not.

This definitely is slowing me down. I am already in a lot of pain without having the surgery already.

Faith certainly doesn’t hurt and it is most likely to help. It helps me to keep a better attitude. It is such a comfort to be able to call on almighty God when I need something. My faith allows me to face the surgery tomorrow. I may be anxious, but I know God is in control and he is working everything for my good in my life. He is opening and closing doors. He is leading me down the path of righteousness. To live is Christ, and to die is gain.

My faith gives me an everlasting hope of Salvation. It gives me a lifetime supply of God’s goodness, Grace, and mercy which follows me. God’s blessings don’t just come to me. They pursue me and take me over. God blesses me abundantly so that I can give to others.

PROMPT November 26th

Today is Thanksgiving here in the United States. I know this is the prompt for tomorrow, but I'm going to give you something to be thankful for. The prompt for tonight is to be yourself. Write whatever is on your mind. Provide your own prompt, so-to-speak. I look forward to reading your posts!

I think I may have missed a prompt or 2. I honestly did good to participate this month. It has been kind of rough and busy. I had several medical appointments to attend. I have started new medicine. I got to/ had to see the rheumatologist a little earlier that expected. That appointment was just exhausting. Let me tell you about my month.

I had 2 infected teeth that ended up being pulled. Fortunately, I had actually set a dental appointment shortly before I started even showing symptoms of this. I knew I needed dental work and wasn’t sure what Medicaid would cover. My elderly neighbor had asked me to go with her to run some errands because she wasn’t feeling the greatest that day. So I went with her to her dentist so she could handle some business there. While there, I decided to make an appointment. 2 days later, the right side of my face swelled up and started hurting.

My roommate had scheduled an appointment with our mutual dr for Monday. She decided she didn’t want to keep her appointment. I went in because I was supposed to get my COVID booster. I asked if I could see the dr in my roommate’s place and explained what was going on with me. The clinic agreed to let me. I am telling you, God was watching over me. The dr put off the booster, and put me on antibiotics. That following Wednesday was my dentist appointment.

At the dental appointment there was a full exam and X-rays. They decided to pull 4 teeth altogether even though only 2 was infected. He had a very hard time getting me numb for the infected teeth. It turned out, they were fused together, which is rare and he showed me the nerve that was exposed. He said that’s why he had trouble hitting it. I had to be extra careful not to get dry socket.

I finished my round of antibiotics and was still feeling sick. I developed a very low grade temp, only 99ish. I just felt awful for about 4 or 5 days afterwards. . On that Friday, I saw a psychiatrist for my nightmares due to ptsd from childhood trauma. She put me on a new medicine and increased my antidepressant dose.

I have seen the nutritionist again. I need to start prep landing my meals before my next visit. I had a visit with my counselor. I had to go see the anesthesiologist for the surgery. I had a pre-op appointment also. Yeah, did I mention it’s been busy. That doesn’t include other personal business that needed to be handled and trying to write Bible studies and keep up with nano and this blog and sending the daily prompts for take up your cross blog, I tried to keep up, but those infected teeth kicked my behind. I finally just got over exhausted and had to slow down to heal.

I got a call saying they were going to have to reschedule the rheumatologist and it would be next year before I could get in to see him. I have already waited since at least June. They said I had been added to the waiting list for any cancellations. It just so happened they had one available the next day. I grabbed the opportunity. At the appointment several X-rays and blood tests were done.

They did one for ANA antigens I think is what it’s called. It was detected and the pattern was speckled. I have also been complaining of joint pain. The dr says he thinks that’s because I have another autoimmune disease. It has only been a couple weeks since I learned I have Hashimoto’s. So he is putting me on 2 new meds. For one he wants to treat the inflammation in my blood work and suppress my immune system since it is attacking itself. He ordered more blood work which I got done Wednesday. I am now waiting for those results,

In the meantime, I have to get ready to have a D&C and scope done Monday because they had found endometrial crowding in the biopsy they had taken previously. This will be my first experience with anesthesia. I will be glad when that’s over with. Needless to say, the nerves got to me a little this week and caused my blood pressure to raise a bit. Of course, that causes headaches.

Yeah, that’s why I was waving the white flag earlier this week. I feel exhausted and a bit overwhelmed.

PROMPT November 24th

In a previous prompt, I asked you to write about your best, or favorite teacher. Tonight write about your darkest teacher.

I feel like I have been half out of it lately. I will eventually write about it all, but I have a lot going on with my health right now. It has kind of kicked my behind.

Truthfully, it is so easy to complain about people. Yes, I have a teacher that I didn’t get along very well with. I just don’t like talking about it. I think our personalities just kind of clash. I am very sarcastic and she is kind of simple minded. She goes to my church and to this day I have to check myself at the door with her. She kind of makes herself an easy target. Thankfully, I am much better at controlling my responses to her now. Lol when I was in school with her, I was in trouble every day with her for various reasons.

In your blog today, tell us your favorite joke. It can be long, short, it does not matter. What makes this particular joke your favorite one? C'mon, show us your sense of humor!

I have a sense of humor, but I don’t know I have a favorite joke. My favorite when I was a kid was, “who was the first insurance salesman mentioned in the Bible?

It was David because he sold Goliath a piece of the rock.

Tonight/today, listen to this beautiful song.


Where does your mind go when listening to this? What emotions surface as you experience the music? If you've seen the movie (Return To Me), tell us how this affected you. Has it changed you at all?

Apparently I am a day late and a dollar short. Yesterday was my mom’s birthday. This was her 4th one in heaven. It affected me some yesterday. I am also struggling with some brain fog. I didn’t realize I hadn’t answered yesterday’s prompt until just a few minutes ago. I tried to open the link to the song and couldn’t hear it because it said that it was no longer available. 🤷‍♀️ I have not seen the movie either.

You have found that you can do something no one else can do. What is this special talent you have? Would it be considered a 'Super Power'? If you could have chosen this special ability, what would it be?

I think I have a couple of super power, although they aren’t that rare. I have a great smile with a sense of humor and I am an empath. I can feel what others are feeling. Sometimes this is good when you are trying to comfort others. When there is a lot of negativity in a room, it is not good.

In your blog tonight/today, write about a story you've been told, or use a newscast story and CREATE a conspiracy theory. Tell us why you chose this subject, and of course, provide 'evidence' that your theory could be rooted in truth.

My Dad used to like to tell people how I would act out the story of David and Goliath when I was 3 years old. I would act out taking food to my brothers in the battle against the Philistines. I would go through the motions of being surprised to see the giant. I would act like I went to the king and tried on his armor and then act like I collected 5 smooth stones. I would get ready to face the giant.

Then dad would ask me, What did the giant say?

“Fe Fi Fo Fum!”

I wonder what other story he had been telling me. 🤔

We've all had one or several epiphany's in our lives. Tonight, write about a moment in your life that changed the way you view the world.

The most important epiphany I ever had was when I realized I needed to develop a close relationship with God. I decided to begin reading my Bible and praying every day. My life had now changed and in a good way. I am living better. I am happier. I still deal with depression but it hasn't been as severe. I am learning to take better care of myself. I realize a lot of mistakes that I have made and a working to correct what I can. I have found a new passion in writing. Even though I am having health issues, I am trusting in God. I have a hope that I didn't have before. I don't regret it and I never want to go back.

An easy prompt for tonight. I'm tired, don't want to think much, so an easy one. What did you do during the 'Great Shutdown For The Upgrade' of WDC today? Tell us all the 'gory' details!

I took a nap because I wasn't feeling good anyway. When I woke up, I did some old fashioned journaling with pen and paper. It was back up and running before I finished journaling.

Thankfully I am feeling a lot better today, just still feeling a little week and shakey but this too shall pass.
