Happy Tuesday to all. It is a gorgeous morning here in my piece of Indiana. It looks to be a fabulous week. Just a couple chances of rain - here's hoping it hits my area. It looks to be spotty. I pray for the farmers - I am sure they need rain for their crops.

Tuesday Talk and Observations
I have roses blooming so pretty. Many other flowers are starting to bloom as well. I have clover blooming all over and the scent in the air is just heavenly!!!!! I have been porch setting some and enjoying talking with all the 'good' neighbors. I helped one out - they are currently without work and very limited food stamps. He was asking if I knew where there any food pantries around close. I gave him the names and times for three. I asked if he needed food now - because I would help him out and he said no, he was good for now. He said he would be visiting the pantries and was very grateful.
We as neighbors have planned a small get together later in the month for a guy who owns several lovely properties on my block. He takes such good care of them, and he is a wonderful older caring man. We are going to have a small neighborly surprise birthday celebration for him.
Well guys, I called the jury selection place, answered their questions (all computerized) - simple things like - over 18?, citizen of county?, speak, write and understand English?, any disabilities?.........
And they said I was NOT qualified!!!!!!!! Huh. I didn't say anything trying to get out of it - maybe they have social on hand and can see age, I don't know. If that is the case - I wonder why they waste money sending the notices to start with. OH WELL - NO jury duty for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I need to say a thank you to Frances!! When she first started talking about changing her diet - I paid attention. I have since pretty much eliminated sugary things from my diet. An occasional bite at a party, but really nothing here at home. I am eating lots of fruit and natural juice and fresh veggies or cheese when wanting sweets/snacks. I have now lost about 5 lbs. and I just happened to realize this weekend a HUGE change for me.
I have not been experiencing Restless Leg (RLS) at all in the past few weeks!!!!!! NONE! I was taking OTC supplements every single night before, and sometimes that didn't help.
I am thrilled. This is truly the first time in decades I have not experienced RLS on a regular basis. A result I never anticipated at all!!!!!!!
THANK YOU FRANCES!
The above meme says a lot to me. I have recently decided I need to pray differently. There has been a lingering problem in the neighborhood, and I pray so hard about it. I then realized, maybe I need to do it differently. I have been saying "please stop...", "please end...", please help..." "why...".
My attitude is a big part of my problem. Sure, I don't like what has been happening and it saddens me.
But, I can't change anyone, except ME! I have to stop letting others steal my joy and happiness. I have to know and believe God is in control.
I have to stop doubting and have undying faith!!!!!!!
I will love this person as they are a child of God - I don't like what they do, but I will love them and pray for their soul.
I am taking back my joy and my peace. No one is going to be allowed to do this to me. I am in charge of me and my attitude. I give this problem to God, as I have had no success in changing this person - why would I think I could??? Only God can touch those in need of spiritual help in a way for change. I can pray, and I can say THANK YOU for every single little blessing I receive each and every day!!!
Take some time in each prayer to give thanks. We all love a grateful heart!
What is on your mind today?
I hope you each have a wonderfully blessed and peaceful day.
