Day 657 Footprints washed from my mind

14 11 2014

Another week with my babies is done. It’s a tough thing to drop them off but man do I love my every minute with them. They are so full of life and they teach me so much. They still have a lot of innocence which I lost many years ago and with the that I learn from them. Just like my daughter said this morning  we may not get breakfast here again so we should appreciate it right daddy? Absolutely!

If you have never been to the beach I think everyone should go just to walk the shoreline with bare feet. It’s an amazing feeling but one of the few times we get to see our footprint. I think I spend about a minute looking behind me noticing my footprint and then watching it get washed away. As I walk the shoreline I continue to make footprints though but no matter what they get washed away every time. If I look back they are gone but still in my mind and if I look forward I see the new ones I’m making by putting one foot in front of the other. Last night I did the second part of my radio show and I thought about all the footprints I had made in my past. I have a hard time remembering the good ones but they bad ones stick. I almost cried twice during the show just thing about those moments. People think they know because of my blog and sure you get about 15% of me.What you don’t know is the emotion that came with those moments. The emotions are what shaped me and dammit they hurt. I left a lot of footprints that maybe only 2 people know them all and that’s probably safe for most but with that when the show ended last night I was truly happy. I’m leaving some really cool footprints now and some people have told me the things I say and do don’t leave them. I thought they all get washed away but I learning otherwise. I’m so thankful that life is able to be re-created and it was done through the bad things that I’m learning to be thankful for. I know this my daughter put her head on my shoulder last night driving home from the show and said dad I’m really proud of you, you’re doing good things. The footprints I left before would have never got my daughter to say that. When you walk the beach next time and you see your footprints wash away remember that it’s not what you see in your past that matters but what you left people to see tomorrow.

Day 134 Dont touch me there

19 05 2013

I want to first thank Wendy Dee: http: wyndydee.wordpress.com/2013/05/18/wonderful-team-member-award  for being nominated for a Wonderful Team Member Award for https://tywood12.wordpress.com/about// Watching the journey has been an eye-opener from a man’s point of view.  We tend to forget they get hurt just as deeply but most can’t express it.  He is doing just fine! She is a great writer, follower of my blog and a Texan.

THE DFW Metroplex felt like a hot wet sock this weekend. It’s hard to be outside when there is no deodorant that works for 94 and just showered outside weather. Had a mud bug boil with my fellow Ruggers and various other items. It was a weekend of reflection which I will write about tomorrow but this weekend was helped to be put in perspective by HOPE. It was a message a church this morning and believe me today was not a day I was excited about going to church. There was no particular reason just sometimes church is a place to go because your supposed to. I didn’t  want to be touched there today but I got it anyway. Right in my worried, broken, fragile untrusting heart. HOPE is what Pastor Toby talked about and he was on fire. Ezekiel 37 Valley of the Dry Bones

The Valley of Dry Bones

37 The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”

I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”

 

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath[a] enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’”

 

So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.

 

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’” 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.

 

11 Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the people of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’ 12 Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: My people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. 13 Then you, my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. 14 I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord.’”

There are many aspects of My life i lost HOPE. I believe God forgot about  parts of my life. Whats the point: as tears rolled down my eyes today it was again brought to my attention that God makes the impossible possible. It’s easy to forget that because Satan tries to kill our hope and when he does then he kills our life. I heard a message I needed to hear but the problem is tomorrow is Monday. Again I have to remember get busy living or get busy dying.





Day 28 Im dying my total days 13625

29 01 2013

Today was one of the weird days in Texas weather. I was driving with windows down and the wind-blown trough my scalp ( I have no hair) , then it started raining and the wind was blowing like the Wizard of OZ and I just turned my heater on a bot ago. Love Texas Weather.

I also got reprimanded for speaking about my ex here on the blog so I won’t be talking about her life and how it affects anything with me anymore.

I told all of you I was going to make amends,say I m sorry and tell people what they meant to me. I had another incredible lunch today with someone who today that I believe if I wouldn’t pushed her out of my life I would be married to her today. She was amazing and I treated her very badly but the apology was accepted very graciously. If I would just allowed people to love me I would have been a lot happier in my life. You know who you are and thank you!!

I m going to my first meetup tonight in Arlington. Wish me luck because I have no idea what this is, what to expect. At least I can tell someone new that doesn’t me all my dumb  my jokes

I’m dying and so are you I have lived 13625 Days: 20000 Days and Counting maybe one of the best books I have every read.

Of all the principles shared the one that jumped out at me most was `Motivation is a myth.’ The author says:

“Believe me. You cannot motivate people to do any one thing. Even yourself. Never try to motivate yourself or anyone else to increase productivity. Instead, do the opposite: Increase your productivity, then the motivation will follow.

I reflected on my own experiences and could see the truth in this. My attempts at motivation in itself have often been very short-lived to downright failures. However, whenever I did just set my mind to it and accomplish a task, I found I was more likely to feel satisfied and attempt another.
